Modern Contemporary Restaurant, Sparrow, Transforms Old Dive Bar in Juanita

Kirkland’s Juanita neighborhood welcomes Sparrow, an American Contemporary restaurant, located where J-Bay Bar & Grill used to be.  Not only can you expect delicious and elevated cuisine, but a totally revamped and beautiful ambiance – complete with plenty of patio space. 

Its name, Sparrow, was influenced by wanting to be a different kind of Kirkland neighborhood restaurant. In ancient Greek mythology, sparrows were considered a symbol of love. The sparrow was the sacred bird of Aphrodite, the goddess of love, and symbolized true love and spiritual connection, and at Sparrow, they pride themselves in putting an abundance of love into their food and service. 

Its atmosphere carries the characteristics of the Pacific Northwest, with moss and weathered wood accents throughout.  The modern color palette, interior design finishes, and dimmed lights create cozy and welcoming atmosphere.  Speaking of welcoming, even your furry friends can join while dining on the patio.  There is even a doggy run for convenience!

Sparrow’s specialty cocktails are amazing, using fresh squeezed organic oranges, lemons, limes and other fruits daily to craft delicious drinks for its guests. The garnishes are dehydrated at Sparrow by hand.  Come for happy hour, stay for dinner.  You’ll be happy you did!
