Our Policies

Office Hours - Our office is located at 2078 Monroe @ S. Florence (on Overton Square) We show the room Monday, Wednesdays and some Tuesdays between 1:30-5:30 pm as well as Thursday evenings after 5:00 pm (appointments are recommended). The Magnolia Room is located next door to our restaurant, The Side Street Grill. Information on our services is available 24 hours a day.

Booking Events and Room Rental - In order to adequately prepare for your event, we need menu confirmation one week prior to your event as well as a guaranteed headcount. We require a $700.00 deposit to reserve a particular day. That deposit will go towards your room rental as well as the catering. We do not allow outside caterers to come in. We have a minimum of 50 people and a maximum of 150 people. We require one attendant for 60 guests, 3 attendants over 60 guests and each attendent is 100.00. Our party event coordinator will let you know how many attendants you need to adequately serve your guests. Sit down dinners will take more attendants.

Payment - We accept money orders, checks or cash. Payment is not due until one week prior to your event. We will accept a major credit card for a deposit only.

Deposits - Deposits on room rental are non-refundable unless The Magnolia Room is unable to fulfill its obligation to the event for any reason. Damage deposits will be returned at the end of the event after inspection of the property. See below for more information on damage deposits.

Damage and Security - Fraternity and sorority organizations will be required to put down a $500.00 damage deposit before the event. After the event and a walk through inspection of the premises the deposit will be promptly returned. These organizations will also be required to pay $100 for a security guard for every 100 guests at the event and all attendees must be 21 years or older.
