As we all know, the US is currently dealing with an unprecedented crisis with the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. Unfortunately, some of the hardest hit have been those of us working in the service. As of March 15, Governor Pritzker has shut down all bars and restaurants until at March 30 at the earliest. Beyond that, the Governor has also limited gatherings to less than 50 people, ideally less than 10.
While the safety of our staff and customers is always our top concern, being closed in excess of 2 weeks puts many of us in a financial bind, as most bartenders/barbacks/servers in the industry are paid in tips. Therefore, we graciously ask for your assistance through this Virtual Tip Jar.
The money raised here will be donated 100% to the staff of Scarlet Bar, to help keep us all afloat until we are able to open again and continue serving community with the best music and parties that we are known for.
Thank you to everyone that has contributed to us so far, through Venmo, Cashapp, or this fundraiser, we greatly appreciate it. We hope to be past this pandemic and up and running sooner rather than later, so we can continue providing you the Frat Nights, Liquid Brunches, Fuegos, The Monster Raves, and all of our other events that you've come to know and love.
Much love to everyone, please be safe and healthy!
The Scarlet Staff <3
