ESR Cellar is a full service, secure wine storage facility located in the Kolstrand Building on Ballard Avenue. As an extension of Ethan Stowell's Staple & Fancy restaurant, the space also has a private cellar room available for hosted gatherings and special events. Members get waived corkage in the event space (with easy access to your wine!) as well as monthly waived corkage vouchers for all Ethan Stowell restaurants with a yearly contract.
With membership you also have access to our special wine club offerings. Each month our wine director selects a handful of wines that can be purchased right here on our website and delivered directly to your storage locker. A monthly catalog will be emailed to all members with full descriptions of the wines.
