The Well - Employee Fund

The staff of The Well needs your help. 

Starting today (3/23), The Well has willingly closed its doors indefinitely in compliance with the Governor’s order for non-essential businesses to cease operations. We fully understand that call, and agree that this course of action is needed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

At the suggestion of some wonderful friends and regulars, we have set up a Gofundme page to benefit everyone on our team who lost their livelihood during this very scary time. 

If you’ve ever come here for beer, a tap takeover, a beer festival, an outdoor party, an indoor party, a birthday party, a Tinder hookup, a fundraiser, to see a band perform, to watch the debates, or just randomly wandered in to use our bathroom, please consider that all those great memories and moments could not have happened if it wasn’t for all the hard work and dedication from our entire staff:


Bar Backs

Box Office & Door People



Sound & Production Staff


Office Staff

It’s never easy to ask for help, but these are extraordinarily unique and difficult times. Whatever you can spare will be appreciated beyond words. We also understand that this is a hard time for everyone, so if you cannot donate, please consider sharing the link to your network.


Thank you, stay safe, stay at home. We look forward to a time we can get back to doing what we know–PARTYING WITH YOU.
