The Space

Southend has two unique event spaces on our second and third floor. High above historic East Bay Street, you will enjoy sweeping views of the Charleston Harbor and city skyline. The second floor Bobby Jones Room and the third floor Wagener Room are ideal for large parties and intimate gatherings alike.

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. The Wagener Room boasts multiple flat screen televisions and pool tables for extra entertainment. Please inquire about the food and beverage minimum required to reserve this space.

Southend Brewery’s event space is free of charge for parties over 25 people; a $50 rental fee is applied for smaller parties. No matter which space you choose, the event team at Southend Brewery will create the party of your dreams. Let your imagination run wild and your room will be transformed to meet your exact needs.

The Food

The food for Southend Brewery events is quickly and freshly prepared only steps away from our event space. The Southend Chefs created special event menus with a variety of options to match your needs. You may select from hors d’oeuvre, a la carte choices, pre-set menus, or completely customize your own menu.

The Details:

·         Groups of 15 people or more are required to select from our banquet menus.

·         Hosts of parties with fewer than 15 people may choose to have their guests order from Southend Brewery’s regular dining menu during the event.

·         Hosts of plated dinner parties will pre-select a menu of approximately 1-3 entrées. Guests will select their entrees in advance and the host will provide the total number of each entrée selected at least 14 days prior to the event. Accompanying salads, appetizers and desserts are pre-selected by the host.

·         Hosts for buffet-style dinners will pre-select the entire menu offering a variety of salads, side items, entrees and desserts. Please submit final menu choices 14 days prior to the event. The amount of food prepared is dependent on the total number of confirmed guests which can be changed up to 7 days before the event.
