One of our favorite places to go out at night! Hot stuffed dates are INCREDIBLE. Everything's a bit expensive, but it's good. Can get loud when crowded, otherwise great atmosphere.

Sweet little lounge near the Mount Baker Theater. Cool cocktails and nice snacks, e.g. dates stuffed with cheese. Very nice.

We love the Temple Bar for happy hour. On our last visit the 3 of us shared the cheese plate which we thought had a nice variety of cheeses and ample quantity. We also shared the lemon-basil polenta ($9) which was scrumptious. Wine by the glass was a typical price you find around town and bottle of beer was $2.75.... More

Primarily wine and cocktails, with many appetizer plates small and large. Very popular, sometimes hard to get a table. Be sure and check the back room when you first walk in - there are often tables there when the front is full.

I went to Temple Bar in Bellingham with some friends and we each got a different drink from the menu which was almost half of the cocktail menu selection. We all really disliked our drinks, except for my wife who definitely had the only good drink of our group. The cheese platter was small, but it came with a nice... More

I love the Temple Bar, and go regularly with my girlfriends to 'worship' on a Sunday. ;-) Laid-back atmosphere with unique eats and original cocktails. The salads are always great... but my favorite snack is the 'hot stuffed dates'. Get a 'Super G&T' if you'd like to visit citrus-y cocktail heaven. The French 75 is nice too... really you can't...

Was in Bellingham to see Pink Martini at the Mount Baker Theatre, and wanted a place for dinner close the theatre. This looked promising from Trip Advisor reviews, but really I did not expect much-- what a pleasant surprise! Very cool place, excellent service. People running this care about drinks and care about food; that shows! Thanks Temple Bar for... More

Last summer we sat ourside, this last time inside. It's a tight fit and a bit load but the service is excellent, very personable, and the food is great. Small plates, a bit french, all were very good.

Before or after a show at the Mt. Baker or the Pickford or The Idiom or for no reason at all. Nice cocktails and great atmosphere. We love this place and can honestly say we have never been disappointed.
