Conveniently located in the heart of downtown Grand Junction, Ella’s Blues Room offers a unique culinary dining experience.

The name and inspiration comes from one of the owners, Jeff Davis, and his upbringing in Chicago not far from Chess Records. The restaurant itself is named after Jeff’s mother, Mary Ella Davis, who was a singer and heavily involved in the Blues and Jazz scene in the 1950’s & 60’s.
At Ella’s we know that a great dinner isn’t only about food and hand crafted cocktails, but also about having a memorable and unique dining experience. Designer Margaret Csikos Rodriguez, who has 20+ years experience and known for several award winning homes in western Colorado, has created an inviting, comfortable, upscale feel. Ella’s is where the adults come to play!
