The second and third floors of Southend are dedicated to private events, however all three floors of the restaurant can be reserved for very large parties.

The second floor Bobby Jones Room is tucked away from the bustling restaurant. It sits between exposed brick walls, tall windows, bright artwork and glass brewery walls. The room extends across the front of the restaurant and provides a comfortable space for parties of up to 70 people for buffet and plated dinners. The Bobby Jones Room offers a private and elegant atmosphere, but can be transformed into nearly anything you envision.

The third floor Wagener Room is casual and rustic with high ceilings, exposed brick and tall rafters. When utilizing all of the room’s seating capacity, the Wagener Room is a wonderful space for parties of up to 100 guests for a seated event and 150 guests for a reception-style event. It can also be sectioned off for a more intimate feel for small parties. The fully stocked Harborview Bar sits at the head of the room, providing easy access to cold drinks during your party.
