Employees Only began as an idea to create a restaurant that would be entirely owner operated and cater to others in the service industry. Using their combined previous knowledge in the field, the owners set a plan in motion to establish a speakeasy setting where restaurant industry workers could gather till the wee hours of the evening. Here they could treat themselves to quality food and drink in a vibrant and carefree atmosphere. As the concept developed, it was realized that more staff would be needed to maintain the standard of quality desired. Even though the scale of Employees Only grew, attention to detail and personalized service remain at the heart of the concept.
