BEFORE YOU COME...

OUR LOCATION

SOUTH is located at 600 North Broad Street in the Spring Garden neighborhood of Philadelphia, at the cross streets of Broad and Mt Vernon. Our entrance is on Mt Vernon Street. 

SOUTH is conveniently located near I-95, 676 and 76 and is within walking distance to several upscale hotels, Philadelphia City Hall, The Pennsylvania Convention Center and The Met.

OUR BUSINESS HOURS

SOUTH is open for business Thursday through Sunday for dinner and the best live Jazz in the Philadelphia metropolitan area.

Dinner is served Thursday from 5:00PM until 10:00PM, Friday and Saturday from 5:00PM to 11:00PM and Sundays from 4:00PM to 9:00PM.

We have Happy Hour on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 4:30PM to 6:30PM. A rotating selection of drink specials are available along with a bar menu and our full dinner menu. Specials are available at the bar and in the lounge area only.

SOUTH is not open Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday but may be available for private events.


DO YOU WANT TO DINE AT SOUTH or ENJOY LIVE JAZZ WHILE YOU DINE?

We offer both options. 

SOUTH is two distinct spaces under one roof. Our Dining Room is reminiscent of a lovely Southern home. Our Jazz Club is a hip, cool, industrial modern space. The two rooms are distinct in style, but the warm Southern hospitality is evident throughout. We offer the same menu in both our dining room and Jazz Club.

If you wish to join us for dinner, reservations can be made conveniently 24/7 through our website. You can make a reservation here: 

If you want to join us for dinner and Jazz, you’ll need to purchase a ticket, but you do not need  a separate dinner reservation. Your tickets will reserve a table in the Jazz Club where you can dine and remain at your table for the show. To purchase tickets for the show, click here: 

Tickets for the Jazz Club are offered in the hour prior to the start of the show. We do this to allow you time to be seated and get comfortable, order your food and beverage, and chat with your companions before the show begins.

DRESS CODE

SOUTH is an upscale restaurant and Jazz club and our patrons dress the part. Business attire and dressy casual attire are the norm. Most guests tend to dress up for a night out on the town.

WE DO NOT PERMIT:

- athletic attire or sweat pants

- tank tops

- hats or caps on gentlemen

- clothing with offensive language or images

- exposed undergarments

- excessively revealing clothing

- work boots

HANDICAPPED ACCESSIBILITY

SOUTH Restaurant and the Jazz Club are both fully accessible to our patrons with physical disabilities. Entrances and restrooms can all be accessed without stairs.

RESERVATIONS & LARGE PARTIES

You may reserve a table in the dining room for parties of one to ten guests. We are not able to seat parties larger than ten in our dining room, lounge or outdoor courtyard.

A credit card is required to secure all dining room reservations. No charge will be made to your card as long as you cancel no later than 24 hours before your reservation.

In the Jazz Club, a maximum of six tickets may be purchased, and the largest party we are able to seat together is six guests. Tickets are prepaid, final sale and non-refundable.

Groups of 30 or more are welcome to explore our private dining space SouthSide, located just next door to SOUTH at 1410 Mt Vernon Street. 

RESERVATIONS - ARE THEY NECESSARY?

The short answer is yes. 

Reservations are strongly encouraged and most evenings are a necessity. We are almost always fully booked in both the dining room and Jazz Club, so we recommend planning ahead and reserving or buying tickets. We will seat walk-ins when possible, but if you don’t see availability online, we are fully booked and won’t be able to accommodate guests who do not have a reservation. Online reservations represent our full table inventory. We do not hold back any tables for walk-in guests.

WHY CAN'T I BOOK A LARGER PARTY?

SOUTH’s dining room is not especially large. To offer the best possible experience for all guests, we limit the larger parties to one area of the room. This area can most comfortably seat ten people.

In the Jazz Club, our goal is to create a laid back listening and dining space where everyone can be immersed in the music. We find that larger groups, who are often together to celebrate a special occasion, make it difficult to achieve a music-focused listening environment. We appreciate everyone’e understanding and cooperation in following of these policies.

CAKES, BALLOONS & OTHER PARTY DECORATIONS

With prior arrangement, guests may bring a cake to add to their celebratory dinner. However, we will assess a $3 per person plating and serving fee.

SOUTH does not permit party decorations of any kind. This includes balloons, confetti and glitter. Small floral arrangements are welcome, but small is key. Our tables are not overly large and our plates are big and full of delicious food. Large floral displays simply won’t fit on the table.

If you would like flowers to be at your table for a special occasion, please contact a local florist for assistance and be sure to tell the florist the name your reservation will be under, the time and date of your reservation and also let our staff know to expect a flower delivery in your name. SOUTH cannot order flowers on your behalf.

TICKETING POLICY

All shows at SOUTH Jazz Club are ticketed. Tickets are final sale and non-refundable. You can transfer your tickets to someone, but we do not offer refunds and we do not have a re-sale option. We appreciate your understanding of these policies.

GIFT CARDS

Digital gift cards can be purchased online through our website. Digital gift cards can be sent by email or text message. You can even choose your digital delivery time and date. Cards can be sent immediately or scheduled to arrive exactly on that special occasion.

Traditional (physical gift cards similar to most major retailers) can be purchased only in-person at this time. Cards can be picked up during our regular business hours, or for bulk purchases, by appointment.

THE BEST WAY TO GET IN TOUCH

The quickest way to get information about a reservation or a show is to send us an email. You can expect an answer within a few hours most of the time (holidays may be the exception). For all general inquiries info@southrestaurant.net
