The Portal Container Village Shop Tenants

The Portal Summer 2023

The Portal is Whatcom County's new container village hub at the heart of the downtown waterfront, located at 298 W Laurel Street, Bellingham. Featuring six local businesses and one rotating retail shop creatively operating out of metal shipping containers, The Portal Container Village has something for everyone to explore! Spend your day riding the waterfront pump track with a Sun-E-Land bike rental, swing over to Portal Putt, Bellingham's only outdoor mini golf course, and refresh with a cup of coffee and pastry from Our Kitchen, or enjoy a specialty Selkie Scoop ice cream. Stay for breakfast, lunch and or dinner and grab a bite from Rain or Shine Riviera Club or food from one of our rotating food trucks or kick back with a pint at Kulshan Trackside Beer Garden- whatever you’re feeling, we’ve got you covered! The Portal is a family friendly and pet friendly space providing a unique experience for all, with beautiful views of Bellingham Bay right in the heart of Bellingham, WA. Check out the Calendar of Events Page to stay up to date with all The Portal happenings!!  

A new Rotating Retail Shop, Zeeks Pizza, and Bin 13 Wine Bar are coming soon, so be sure to check back often for updates. If there is something you would like to see in The Portal, we want to hear your ideas. Send an email to or call Carey Hansen at (360) 393-5449 and we will bring your suggestions to our waterfront team for consideration.
