The Velvet Elk was previously named The Saloon. Learn why we changed the name here.

"Shhh, The Velvet Elk is Mt Baker's best-kept secret!"

We are a lush, cozy and romantic little craft cocktail bar that is unique in its eclectic vintage decor and intimate vibe. Downstairs is the main bar with lots of enticing corners to enjoy conversation with a friend or small group of friends. Upstairs is a spacious and otherworldly livingroom lounge, complete with board games, a typewriter, a zodiac vending machine, an acoustic guitar, and a movie projector that we use for themed movie nights. There is also a Polaroid camera and film available to document your visit!

But most importantly, our genuinely warm and friendly bartenders are passionate about surpassing your expectations in service and cocktailing skills. 

Besides great cocktails, we serve delicious Okazu Pan and a variety of bar snacks. You are also welcome to bring in outside food. Mioposto is right next door and offers delectable woodfired pizzas and other Italian fare!

Come experience The Velvet Elk tonight!

The entire bar is available for rental for larger events (max 35 guests) and film or photography shoots. The upstairs lounge is reservable for special events and parties of 15 or less until COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. Contact us here to learn more.

Please note, we are a 21+ (with valid ID) only bar.

We are proud to be a safe and inclusive space for people of all diversities.
We are a woman-owned establishment and we do all we can to support other women, LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, and local small businesses. Let's topple this mutha together!
