The health and safety of our residents and visitors is the highest priority of the City of Kirkland. As of Monday, March 22, 2021, Kirkland is in Phase 3 of Governor Jay Inslee’s regional “Healthy Washington - Roadmap to Recovery” phased plan for economic recovery. Although many City services are available online, City Hall and most City buildings are closed to the public as part of our response to COVID-19.

What's New

Stainless steel dandelions at Village at Totem Lake in the eveningAs we adapt to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and turn our attention to recovery, the City is cautiously starting to come back to life... Albeit with facial coverings and constant spritzes of hand sanitizer.

Despite the economic hardship that permeated our small business community in 2020, a variety of fun new businesses have launched, while many of our beloved, longstanding businesses have persevered! Things are beginning to brighten, with venues, galleries and restaurants opening their doors and welcoming guests once again.

This exciting amalgamation of established businesses and newcomers is a true reflection of Kirkland's journey from epicenter of coronavirus to epicenter of resilience. We are proud and honored to be home to such a diverse and eclectic collection of businesses, all of which are breathing new life into our economic recovery while infusing it with hope and promise.

This page is dynamic, meant both to provide information on exciting new Kirkland businesses and attractions, while also keeping you informed about the progress of our existing COVID-impacted businesses as they open their doors.

We're open and you're invited!  

Explore Kirkland continues to closely monitor news of COVID-19 and remains vigilant in the fight against this virus. We ask that our guests mirror that vigilance, to help keep businesses open and COVID activity trending down. In addition to wearing well-fitted masks and social distancing, Public Health—Seattle & King County encourages businesses and facilities operating indoors to prioritize ventilation and air flow, plus outdoor, takeout and curbside offerings.
