Chairman of the Board

Seattle City Council President Bruce Harrell, as Board Chair of the Club, has re-energized the Club and re-defined its commitment and relevance to the community. He believes that the Club should be known for its service to its customers and its service to the community and that its culture should be the “go to” place where people exchange ideas, experiences and share their hopes and that the club's operations should be run in a manner that builds community at a time when so many destructive impediments exist.

Kelly Butler

Club Manager

Kelly is one of Seattle's most revered bartenders, so it was a natural move for her to become the Bar manager here at the Royal Esquire Club. Her ability to handle pressure situations and her expertise in the libation business have made her a natural to ascend to the bar manager. You can find Kelly at the upstairs bar for our major events and First Fridays, Stop by and say hello. If you have any questions about the bar Kelly will answer them. Hope to see you soon!
