The Elfstone Tavern was a tavern in the Castle Ward of Waterdeep,[2] on the Street of the Sword.[3] It was aimed at elves and half-elves in the city,[4] and run by Yaereene Ilbaereth.[1]

StructureEdit

The main taproom was thirty feet high with living trees in it. A large oak tree grew in each corner, and upper storey rooms provided privacy and sleeping quarters. Skylights were present in the ceiling,[5] along with shutters that could be opened to allow rain and light in during the day for the trees.[4]

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 and chaises and divans, arranged around a low table, and was magically protected against eavesdropping.[6]

InteriorEdit

The tavern was dimly lit and smelled earthy.[4] Its walls were covered with torches, and it also had chandeliers. These glowed with silver-white flame when lit.[5] Light could also be provided by dancing lights spells, for a soft, blue shade.[4]

Humans, half-elves and halflings were tolerated, but dwarves and half-orcs would be turned away. Entertainment was provided in the form of choral, flute, harp, or pipe music. Service was always speedy and efficient.[1]

Food and drinkEdit

The Elfstone served elven delicacies such as elverquisst, guldathen nectar and maerlathen blue wine,[7] 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.[8]
