Venue Setting

The Cellar below Staple & Fancy is a fantastic, very private space we operate as a private dining room for the restaurant for up to 18 seated guests.

The Cellar @ Staple & Fancy Mercantile - Private Party Stipulations:
 * an open date on the shared calendar and notice to provide staffing from the restaurant 
 * $1,000 minimum food/beverage before tax, service charge and room fee.
 * 18 is the max guest count at the table for seated dinner - perfect party size between 8-18.
 * Dinner is $70/person - in the style of the restaurant's "Chef's Choice" menu of the restaurant (you won't know exactly what you are getting ahead - but it will be lots of small plates/antipastas/fresh salads, seafood, followed by fresh pastas, then entrees [protein - usually meat and/or fish] then dessert). We ask you for any diet restrictions or allergies ahead so that we can accommodate individually. Like in the restaurant, the food is served Family Style. It is a lot of food!
* Dinners generally take around three hours so we recommend starting as early as you are available. Please let us know if you have an END time in mind so we can help you plan for the time frame.
 * *There is a $200 room fee per party (same rate every day of the week)
 * The room has Wi-Fi and a stereo (so you can play your own music or request music from Pandora or the server's iPod)
 * Wine should be pre-selected for larger groups to assure quantities in stock. It works best to give us your preferred style and price range and we can help you prepare ahead for good pairings. There is no bar in the room but guests can individually order beer, cocktails and N/A beverages which the server can get from the main dining room. It is ideal to have the majority of the guests mostly stick to pre-planned wines or beers, however, to avoid longer delays in service from the restaurant upstairs.
 * We take a credit card to hold the reservation and will need a list of any diet restrictions and a final guest count [to be used for the bill] with 48 hours’ notice. There is no deposit or contract; however the credit card on file will be charged $70 per person in the unlikely event of a last minute (less than 24 hours) cancellation or no-show. ESR restaurants have started implementing a 20% service charge on all dinner bills of all sizes in lieu of tipping in order to legally provide equitable compensation to the whole staff.
