The Elfstone Tavern was a tavern in the Castle Ward of Waterdeep,[2] on the Street of the Sword.[3] It catered to elves and half-elves in the city,[2] and was run by Yaereene Ilbaereth circa the Year of the Shield, 1367 DR.[1]

StructureEdit

The main taproom was thirty feet high with living trees in it. A large oak tree grew in each corner, and upper-story rooms provided privacy and sleeping quarters. Skylights were present in the ceiling,[4] along with shutters that could be opened to allow rain and light in during the day for the trees.[2]

There was a small sitting room situated at the back of the building, which was used by the staff for Reverie. It contained furniture such as lounging chairs, chaises, and divans, arranged around a low table, and was magically protected against eavesdropping.[5]

InteriorEdit

The tavern was dimly lit and smelled earthy.[2] Its walls were covered with torches and it also had chandeliers that glowed with a silver-white flame when lit.[4] Light could also be provided by dancing lights spells, for a soft, blue shade.[2]

Entertainment was provided in the form of choral, flute, harp, or pipe music. Service was always fast, near-silent, and graceful. Although the owner and staff are all moon elves and welcomed everyone, some elven patrons were less hospitable. Humans, half-elves and halflings were tolerated, but dwarves and half-orcs were turned away. Volo expressed that if not for the intolerant behavior of some elven patrons he would have rated this place five full tankards.[1]

Food and drinkEdit

The Elfstone served elven delicacies such as elverquisst, guldathen nectar and maerlathen blue wine,[6] and also Evereskan clearwater, moonwine, biscuits with crab meat, mint jelly, roe, shrimp or spiced silverfin, and skewers of rabbit, squirrel or venison with a green sauce.[7]
