The Elk Room

The Elk Room opened on June 4th 2013. Located down a dark narrow hallway inside the Everleigh, it was designed to be an extension of the main bar to cater to the weekend crowds and private events.

Built entirely by Madrusan and his family, The Elk Room has gone above and beyond its original simple conception and formed an identity of its own, offering an array of entirely unique experiences to customers of The Everleigh.

Unlike the grand feeling of The Everleigh, The Elk Room is a darker, grittier and quieter room, reminiscent of an officer’s club in appearance, adorned in civil war memorabilia and chesterfield couches.
