Zhou Bo (died 169 BC) was an official and general of the early Western Han dynasty.
Zhou Bo's ancestral home was in Juan County (卷縣; present-day Yuanyang County, Henan) but he was born in Pei County (沛縣; present-day Pei County, Jiangsu). He was a friend of Liu Bang (Emperor Gaozu), the founder of the Han dynasty, and joined Liu in rebelling against the Qin dynasty. After the fall of the Qin dynasty, Zhou Bo fought on Liu Bang's side in the Chu–Han Contention and assisted him in overcoming his rival, Xiang Yu.
After the establishment of the Han dynasty, Liu Bang enfeoffed Zhou Bo as the Marquis of Jiang (絳侯) to recognise him for his contributions in battle. He served as the Right Chancellor during the reign of Emperor Wen. After his death, Emperor Wen awarded him the posthumous title "Marquis Wu" (武侯; literally "military marquis").
