About Us

Ellington’s Mid Way Bar & Grill offers a tasteful nod to the clearly familiar by serving nostalgic mid-20th-century staples updated with modern panache. A cultural outpost located on the 4th floor of The Fairlane Hotel, we are open daily for lunch and dinner. With indoor and outdoor seating options on the wraparound terrace, we offer both views and vibe alike. Toss one back, order your favorite… what was then is now at Ellington’s.

Ellington's good food in good spirits

Events at Ellington's

That's how it feels, too, when you enter a foyer like a town house might have, with a velvet chaise and herringbone flooring and a pendant lamp. The hostess has an index card with your name on it; she spirits you across the thickly curtained threshold. In the back, the room opens directly onto a glistening white kitchen. It's an exquisitely simple scheme.
