Shirley's Bartender and Pianist Virtual Tip Jar

Hello Shirley’s Family, we are humbly asking for your help and generosity. Shirley’s is at zero income for the foreseeable future. Our cherished bar tenders and pianists, who are the lifeblood of our bar and have provided the once-in-a-lifetime memories each of us has experienced at Shirley’s, are in serious trouble and you can make a significant impact. The bills for Shirley's, our staff, and our musicians have not stopped and will not stop while we are shut down the next few months. We are incredibly looking forward to seeing you all again soon for some great drinks and wonderful music.

We have set up a VIRTUAL TIP JAR to collect tips that will go directly to our incredible bartenders and pianists. 100% of monies will go towards a fund which will be distributed proportionately to staff and pianists to help pay for their living expenses during the months that we are shuttered. We ask you to PLEASE tip as you normally would drinking and singing the night away at Shirley's. Every penny is appreciated.

Please stay home, please stay healthy. We are excited to celebrate and SING with each of you once we can open.

Love & Blessings,


P.S. Shirley's the business also could greatly use your help during this time. If you have the ability, we ask that you PLEASE continue to spend money at Shirley's as you normally would. What does that mean? You can make a major impact by purchasing Shirley's gift cards for yourself and your friends which you'll then be able to redeem once we're allowed to open again. This will help us not get overloaded/behind with bills as well as support our staff while we are closed. You can purchase Shirley's gift cards online here:
