Fairhaven Sin & Gin
Bellingham's quaint south-side neighborhood was once called “the center of prostitution on Bellingham Bay." This lovely shopping district started out as a sort of wild west-style den of sin… full of brothels and saloons! Find out more about the little town whose founding father was called "Dirty Dan."
To wind up the tour, we offer a drink option for those 21+ with valid ID from The Archer Ale House! The Archer staff have created Good-Time-Girls inspired drink options, or have your favorite beer or wine or well!
