The Well Staff Emergency Relief Fund

It is with a full and heavy heart we have made the decision to close The Well temporarily. Our top priority remains the health and safety of our team and guests. 

Today, The Well laid off our entire staff. We are heart broken. Our team is so amazing and their health and safety (as well as yours) is the most important thing in the world to us. 

Our industry’s tipped workers are really feeling the impact of this very new — but very necessary — practice of social distancing.  

We look forward to this moment passing and to reopening our doors with gusto. We can't wait to celebrate that day with you all but until then we wanted to create an opportunity for our team to receive "tips" from some of our beloved customers.  Every cent will go directly to The Well's amazing staff. Please consider a donation of any size to help support them. 

We’ll (eventually) mail you a special card to keep in your wallet that will get you priority seating and access to special promotions and discounts when we reopen, and special treats whenever you visit us.

We look forward to connecting with you over a delicious cocktail soon, but until then please stay safe and healthy. We will get through this together. Always together!
