Absinthe Brasserie & Bar Employee Relief Fund

The Absinthe Group primary focus is – and always has been – our customers and staff. In accordance with Mayor London Breed’s shelter-in-place order, we have closed Absinthe until at least April 7th. We support these actions as they are vital to the health and safety of our community. The company and the owners are sustaining payroll currently, and have assured continued health insurance at their expense through at least April, However, now the 60+ employees who make our restaurant such a special place and experience will eventually be in need of additional support.

These are extraordinarily challenging times for our team, so we managers have set up a GoFundMe campaign and hope to raise support for our employees however possible. We feel honored to have had your support for the last many years. We’d love to ask your support in taking care of our hardworking hourly employees. Behind every polished wine glass, every tartare, burger, and every cocktail is a whole team of people who live and breathe this industry. Thank you so much for your time, continued support, and generosity.
