Neighborhood Bar

Located in Barkley Village

Bellingham, Wa



Our town is BLUE: The lakes, bay, river, islands, mountains, sky, and the WWU colors. It is our humble home: our ABODE.

WHAT: We created a small locally-based bar that pays homage to the coastal woodsy charm of our blue abode: Bellingham. We are providing unique liquor, cocktails that feature local and international distilleries and house-made ingredients, mocktails, local beer, cider, wine, coffee, tea, light food menu, desserts, TVs, local artwork, games, group runs, and more!

WHEN & WHERE: OPEN NOW! At Barkley Village next to MOD Pizza.

WHO: We are Bellingham locals and WWU alumni: Kurt & Katy Hartmaier (a bartender and a nurse) who are passionate about this town and hospitality. In fact, our kiddos are 6th generation Whatcom County residents...those lucky ducks.

WHY: Our goal is to make enough profit to give back to local charities, support even more local businesses, and to provide a fun and relaxing environment for the 21+ crowd to gather.

We love Bellingham, our Blue Abode...and our bar shows it! Swing by for a taste of our hand-crafted imbibes in Barkley Village.
