Dear loyal Velvet Elk patrons,
We appreciate all of your help and support during this trying time. Under Washington State’s phase two guidelines, we were previously gearing up to open up the bar in the next week or so at %50 capacity. We would like to announce that we have reversed that decision and will remain closed to the public until further notice.
That being said, we will soon be launching a program for To-Go Cocktails + meal kits!
We are also offering private full venue rentals of the bar for up to 5 people - Click here for more info and to make a reservation.
We have made this difficult decision out of concern for the safety of our staff and patrons, and a responsibility to those around us. With advice from medical professionals and considering the rising rate of Covid-19 cases, we do not think it would be safe or responsible to open for regular business. We are aware that Coronavirus disproportionately impacts BIPOC people, as well as people in underprivileged communities and those who cannot afford healthcare. We take ourselves very seriously in our goal to be a safe space in the community, and we mean “safe” in every sense of the word.
We believe these are the safest options to continue to serve our community while protecting our staff and patrons. Keep an eye out for our updates on the To Go cocktails!

WE HAVE VELVET ELK T-SHIRTS AND GIFT CERTIFICATES!
YOUR COZY, LITTLE NEIGHBORHOOD
CRAFT COCKTAIL BAR
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.
Come experience The Velvet Elk tonight!
The entire bar is available for rental for larger events and film or photography shoots. The upstairs lounge is reservable for special events and parties of 20 or less. 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, LGBTQNB, and local small businesses. Let's topple this mutha together!
We are happy to announce we are now serving Umami Kushi's, Okazu Pan. A scrumptious Japanese-style fried bread that is crisp on the outside, light and fluffy on the inside and stuffed with a savory filling.
Try a Beef Curry Pan, a Jerk Chicken Creole Pan, BBQ Tasso Pan, or the vegan Lentil Pan tonight.
