Met friends last night to listen to some good music at the Cellar Door. We were blown away by the Rangers and the Re-Arrangers. The $5.00 cover was very reasonable. We were delighted that the band was joined by 4 local musicians and you could...More

The Cellar Door in Port townsend is really great. The unassuming stairway down to the celler could use a sweep, but that rather added to the trattered collection of bric a brac that adorns the room/bar. This is a cocktail bar. They have a few...More

You can also get draft Oly pints for $3, a plus. But spend the extra for one of their craft cocktails, too. They do them right, house made tinctures and shrubs. Cozy spot to listen to music and good acoustics for such a small venue....More

The Maker and the Baker are back. And last week's food was fabulous. And good jazz. The menu is small and changes weekly. We had everything. The pork bellies, the salad and the chanterelles on toast. The mushrooms were so good, we ordered seconds for...More

We were looking for a nice place for a drink after a very disappointing dinner and saw the Cellar Door in TripAdvisor. What we didn't know was that they have live, local music every night (or most nights, anyway). They asked for a $3 cover...More

Two great things that go well together, Cellar Door can be tricky to find - it's underground, but such a great job of decorating and building atmosphere - music most nights from bands, karaoke or open mic (that's a doozy!) lovely place for cocktails

Fabulous Mediterranean mezze at the Jazz Jam. Thursdays are jazz night. The Maker and the Baker vary their offerings. Everything has been good. The mezze was better than good. Makes for a great evening. The house band and weekly guests make it fun.
