Ambience by the Fireside

Where the Beer Flows Like Wine

Grand Opening

The Fireside Martini and Wine Bar opened Saturday May 1st, with a roaring success.  People arrived early to be the first to experience Bellingham’s newest Martini and Wine Bar.

The fun and friendly staff were almost overwhelmed with eager patrons, and did a fantastic job of making everyone have a great time.  Food, wine, and cocktails were flying around the room amidst laughter and conversation.

Enjoy the pictures below, which almost make you feel as if you were part of the party.

Cocktail, Wine and Beer

Bellingham, WA- The Fireside Martini and Wine Bar offers a large variety of unique and affordable cocktails, wine and beer.

The new owners of the Fireside have gone to great lengths to create an impressive wine list that will appeal to a wide range of palates. While they make no claims that you won’t find some of their wines elsewhere, they’re confident you’ll be pleased with the breadth of choices.

The wine menu isn’t permanent and will change from time to time. However the standards won’t be sacrificed and changes will only be made when wines of greater value are brought to our attention.

Several of our Specialty Martinis include in-house infused spirits that include raspberry, citrus, pineapple and jalepeno. We specialize in the classic Martini and stock special Gins and Vodkas for the most discerning tastes. We’re also know for our “custom-built” Bloody Mary’s (and Caesars) . . . as hot as you want ’em!

For beers, we stock bottles and cans of standard-faire value options as well as six specialty beers and ales on tap. While the taps rotate, we make sure there is a well-rounded selection of categories to suit the season.

During its daily happy hour, Fireside has attractive deals on each category of drinks including draft beer, select martinis and our house red and white wines.

Fireside Martini and Wine Bar is conveniently located in Bakerview Square, adjacent to Woods Coffee and IHOP.


Bellingham, WA-The Fireside Martini and Wine Bar offers a variety of quality plated entrées and appetizers.

We make every effort to serve quality, fresh, and honest food. Our flatbread-style pizzas are made from garlic-infused Naan bread and have our hand-crafted cheese spread as their base ingredient. Regulars also come back repeatedly for our Savory Steak Salad with Truffle Aoili. Our grilled sandwiches and wraps always feature a side of made-from-scratch ingredients.

During happy hour (3-6 pm Mon-Sat) all items on our appetizer menu are reduced to $5.00. Our guests can enjoy savory snacks including our Cheese and Fruit Tray, Hummus Plate, Nachos, Pulled-Pork Sliders, and our Margherita Flatbread.

Fireside relies heavily on local establishments for ingredients not only to support the local economy but to provide its customers with the freshest ingredients possible. It succeeds in providing guests with a palette changing experience regarding bar food in the healthiest manner possible.
