Plan your best group event in Richmond, VA
Since Southern Kitchen opened it has quickly established itself as one of Richmond's most welcoming Southern spaces. Since the restaurant opened in 2014, the intimate 250 square-foot Southern Room at Southern Kitchen has hosted events for Richmond's elite such as the mayor and for Chris Brown's mom, as well as for day-to-day business and events for graduations baby and bridal showers.
In 2015 both Style Magazine and River City Best Magazine featured Southern Kitchen for its welcoming southern charm and cuisine – especially its original recipe for "southern rolls" (think egg rolls but with collards and fried chicken) and tequila. Rentals can include their quaint (Th) outside patio that seats 16, named by Yelp as one of Richmond's 5 best patios in 2015. (Double check exact award category).
Besides the striking walls, what most sets this space apart is the winding staircase that leads to a second floor, which can be set up for live music and dj's.
The Southern Room at the Southern Kitchen holds up to 50 people (sit-down) and up to 60 (cocktail-style) with smaller round tables and a buffet set-up.
Several table configurations are possible: heavy hors d'oeuvres or a buffet table can be set up for showers, and for plated dinners round tables or a long table can be setup.
There are three possible spaces: the restaurant, the Southern Room and the Patio. An all-restaurant rental is also possible. Total inside capacity is 98, and can be more with a patio.
Street parking is available, with several lots nearby.
Set up, tables, chairs and linens are often included in the rental so that the person booking the party does not have to arrange anything. Add-ons include specialty china rentals to order, balloons and ice sculptures that can be arranged and/or picked up by the staff at Southern Kitchen.
The space is not handicapped accessible because there is no ramp to the entrance. The outside patio is dog-friendly.
While the restaurant is typically closed on Monday, the Southern Room, the patio and/or all-restaurant rentals are available for private events 7 days a week.
Send an email inquiry through PartyRVA to receive free custom-designed flower arrangements for each table, valued at about $15 a bouquet.

For events without food, the room rental starts at $200.
