The Cellar has remained a campus tradition dating back as far as 1976, and has undergone numerous changes since then. Once named Cellar “X,” this restaurant began as a sandwich shop for students before it quickly was contracted to the Antique Sandwich Company (located on Pearl Street) for a year in order to make necessary improvements on food quality.
Throughout this time, the Cellar, located where the bookstore currently is, remained an exciting and active hangout for the campus community to enjoy. The restaurant featured shuffleboard tile floors, pinball machines, and live music from local bands. In 2000, the Cellar moved to its current location, and switched to DCS hands. Embracing its historic origins, the Cellar now features old photographs and memorabilia that help to preserve the rich and colorful traditions at the University of Puget Sound. Throughout these changes, the Cellar has maintained its commitment to offering a food and social service to the campus, while consistently running and operating under an all-student staff and management team.
