This article lists the places in the city of Bikini Bottom consisting of various landmarks, residential areas, commercial areas, industries, and government establishments in SpongeBob SquarePants.


  • Jellyfish Fields - Miles of open fields and rock formations, where millions of jellyfish live. It is also a popular place for jellyfishing.

Former Establishments

  • Your New Mall - Seen in "Skill Crane," this shopping mall was under construction, but knocked down by Squidward.
  • Kelp Shake - A highly popular restaurant selling Kelp Shakes that had several locations throughout Bikini Bottom. It was closed down after having been discovered to have an ingredient that causes you to grow green hair all over. The idea of them popping up all over is a parody of Starbucks
  • Coffee. (seen in Best Frenemies)
  • Krabby O Mondays - A family oriented restaurant that replaced The Krusty Krab for a short time while Mr. Krabs retired.
  • Krusty Towers - A hotel that Mr. Krabs made himself seen in Krusty Towers.
  • Rusty Krab - A retirement home that went bankrupt and was sold to Mr. Krabs.
  • Rusty's Rib Eye - A restaurant which was long before the Krusty Krab in Bikini Bottom. Seen in "Séance Shméance."
  • Pretty Patties - A kiosk in front of SpongeBob's house that sold painted Krabby Patties in "Patty Hype."
  • Teenage Boy Museum - The museum that Pearl wanted to vacation at in the episode "Mr. Krabs Takes a Vacation." Right after she got there, the museum got demolished. It is not exactly known why the Teenage Boy Museum got destroyed, but it was probably because sales were low and they were out of money, so they sold the place and it got demolished. The location is right across from the Bikini Bottom Mint.
  • Flabby Patty Shack - The Flabby Patty Shack is a dinning place that is the rival to The Krusty Krab. The only food they sell is the rival to the Krabby Patty, the Flabby Patty. It was really a trick by SpongeBob to get Plankton and Mr. Krabs to work together so they would be friends again. It only appeared in "The Other Patty." It was probably demolished or shut down after this episode, as it is never seen again.
  • Stinky Burgers - Stinky Burgers was a small store, with an average look. It had a metal roof of a low quality and the sign was orange with a bold yellow "Stinky," and a black Burgers text. Next to that was a dried out clam that was spouting out a smelly, fake breath. It had a small foghorn coming out from the left side, an ordering window and a door that only Stinky was able to enter. Inside Stinky Burgers was a kitchen, although nothing was shown inside. You did not eat inside though. Outside the cooking area were seats and chairs with an umbrella, shielding bad sun or rain. They were not of great quality. There was also an overfilled trash can on the right. The whole area was surrounded by a very low brick wall. The fact that Stinky did not put more work and care into his business is surprising because of his success, fortune, and "love for the kids".
  • Rippers Reef - As seen in "A Life in a Day", where SpongeBob, Patrick, and Larry destroy the island on a giant bow and arrow from crashing on it.

Unknown Establishments

  • Tony - It is unknown to its purpose but It was seen in "SpongeBob LongPants", when SpongeBob was talking to his fancy friends.

From Other Time Periods

Basic Prehistoric Era

Basic prehistoric Bikini Bottom appeared in "SB-129" and "Ugh." Features a jungle area and tall grass.

Advanced Prehistoric Era

Advanced prehistoric Bikini Bottom appeared in "Ugh." The water is very murky. A forested area features tall grass and trees with vines. Only three known structures exist: SpongeGar's Ancient Pineapple (contains a bed on the floor, with a rock on a bone shelf as an alarm clock. A cave painting of SpongeGar jellyfishing is on the wall); Squog's Ancient Easter Island Head (A key is required to get inside; it has two floors, the main floor has a rock with two thick sticks (one harder than the other) and the other floor is the art gallery where Squog painted a little bit); Patar's Ancient Rock.

Medieval Times

Medieval Bikini Bottom appeared in Dunces and Dragons. The water has a different coloration, shaded pale yellow.

  • King Krabs' castle - The castle. It Looks like the Krusty Krab, but is white. Where King Krabs and Princess Pearl resides. Contains a large dungeon area, a throne room with a guillotine, and the prophecy wall above the throne.
  • Planktonamor's tower - The tower where the evil wizard Planktonamor and his wife Karen lives. Contains a spiral staircase.
  • Village - The main village area. Contains schools, hospitals, a hotel and the following:

41st Century

In 41st Century Bikini Bottom, everything is painted with chrome as seen in "SB-129". The future Krusty Krab was seen, which contains a normal kitchen, only everything is chrome. A can opener room (down hall and to the left) and a Time Machine (down hall and to the right) are featured as well. The Time Machine is actually pink and green with a Tiffany-style light fixture, and has a lever labeled "past" and "future", with a key and three buttons to the right.

From Other Dimensions

  • Unknown Dimension (possibly the space-time continuum or even the Void

This dimension features multi-colored squares, in different places which disappear when lifted, and it comes with a blank white background. Mysterious voices lurk around and copy words that are said (while spelling them out using goofy fonts), and it is hard to get out as running around here will take you back to where you started, as inspired by The Matrix. However, the time machine is always right under where you stand (revealed in SB-129). The only known way to access this place is to destroy the time-switch activator in a time machine. Squidward is the only known character to have gone to this dimension.

Parallel Bikini Bottom

An opposite version of Bikini Bottom; the only known inhabitants are parallel versions of SpongeBob and Patrick. Parallel SpongeBob has been seen in several episodes, including "Wet Painters" and "Something Smells," while Parallel Patrick has only been seen in "Rule of Dumb" and "Roller Cowards." There might be a Parallel Squidward, as shown in "Squidward in Clarinet Land", however, he might just have been a fantasy created by Squidward

The 9th Dimension

A dimension mentioned in "Big Pink Loser" and in a video game. Not much is known about this dimension, except that there are giant monkey men out to destroy it. Patrick's lifelong goal is to find a way to access this dimension, defeat the giant monkey men, and save its inhabitants. It probably doesn't exist, though.

The 8th Dimension

A dimension also mentioned in "Big Pink Loser." Like the 9th dimension, not much is known about this dimension, except that creatures are trying to destroy it. The creatures are known as the little monkey men, which are similar to the giant monkey men in the 9th dimension, but much smaller. Patrick mentioned this when SpongeBob told him that trying to defeat the giant monkey men and saving the 9th dimension would be a little hard in "Big Pink Loser." Like the 9th dimension, the 8th dimension probably doesn't exist, either.
