Due to the Covid-19 shutdown, Feinstein's/54 Below is closed and the entire team has been laid off. We are raising money to benefit the staff: we hope to cover some of their lost income during this time and any extra medical expenses that arise.
The restaurant and live entertainment industry have been hit particularly hard during this pandemic. Many of our staff rely heavily on tips for income. Many work part-time as they pursue performing dreams. Some are not eligible to collect unemployment benefits. Almost all live paycheck-to-paycheck. From our amazing wait staff, to our hard-working kitchen team, to the marketing and administrative assistants -- we are the heart of Feinstein's/54 Below and many of us are facing uncertainty right now.
We are known as "Broadway's Living Room," a place that Broadway performers and their fans call home. We are proud to have developed a close-knit community during the 8 years since we opened and we love seeing so many of you in the club on a regular basis.
We recognize that many of you are hurting right now. But if you are able to contribute, we humbly ask you to give what you can. No amount is too small.
Any funds raised will be distributed among the 68 employees who have been laid off. Some have opted out to make funds available to their co-workers who are truly in need.
We look forward to the day when we can once again welcome you to Broadway's Supper Club. Learn more about us: www.54below.com
