City Winery’s Commitment to Equal Access

City Winery is a champion of equality at all levels. When it comes to the Americans with Disabilities Act we are happy to comply with the ADA standards such as elevators, ramps, and lifts throughout our various spaces, with ease of access to our bars and seats.

We have proudly held benefits for Meals on Wheels and a variety of not-for-profit advocacy groups.  Our policy has always been, since we have reserved seating, to allow any customer access to any and all seats. We provide prompt suggestions for seats that may easier for those with specific needs.

It recently came to our attention that our online seating chart was not clear enough regarding which seats were ADA compliant and we immediately worked to rectify.

We deeply empathize with the challenges differently-abled patrons might face in other venues or elsewhere, and we were happy to make these improvements to our ticketing software to provide more informed access to all our guests.<

You may notice certain seats noted for ADA access on our interactive floor plan. If you currently hold any of those seats and have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our concierge. We will never ask ticket holders to prove their need for any seat or additional accommodation. We hope to have you join us soon! Cheers!

Support Hurricane Relief Efforts in Puerto Rico w/ City Winery

Puerto Rico_rotator

On January 29, City Winery’s sending 125 of our management to Puerto Rico, spending two days in the middle of the island, where we’ll work with farmers to rebuild their property. This includes planting seeds, removing debris, and rebuilding barns, sheds, and farms. Hurricane Maria took a horrific toll and decimated the agricultural industry, which normally acts as the main food supplier for the island.

Chef Cuevas of Restaurant 1919 and the Condado Vanderbilt Hotel acts as the leader in the farm to table movement in Puerto Rico and is collaborating with City Winery to help those in need.

The City Winery employees will be making the trip with duffle bags filled with supplies. Thanks to American Airlines, who will be waiving the excess baggage fees, the company will be able to bring necessities including ground coffee, shovels, extension cords, dehydrated milk, and much more.

To supplement the rebuilding efforts, City Winery will be leveraging its extensive customer-facing business with a campaign to help raise additional funds, allowing the company to bring much needed cash down for distribution directly to the farming and food-creating community.

With over 300,000 email subscribers and a strong social media presence, the 125 managers participating – separately from the campaign – are striving to raise over $250,000 between now and their departure.

Would you be willing to help support by donating product or funds
? We are looking for partners that can offer supplies, cash, and support in our efforts to continue to rebuild Puerto Rico. In return, we will make sure your brand is mentioned on all materials sent to the media and we will have photographer (Getty) documenting the entire effort and you are welcome to use those as you wish. Our PR team can also connect and collaborate with you directly as they will be doing appropriate outreach.

We’re doing boots on the ground efforts to help those affected, and together we’ll make a real difference, please join us by donating at http://www.citywinery.com/puertorico or emailing us at puertorico@citywinery.com
