Soho South Cafe has been made famous by its patrons as one of Savannah's staple weekly lunch and Sunday brunch spots. Opening its doors in 1997, Soho South Cafe is located in the heart of Historic Downtown Savannah, appropriately named after the iconic New York City neighborhood for its proximity to nearby shops and entertainment venues.
Built originally as an automotive service station in 1945, the building sat vacant for a number of years before the restaurant's original owners acquired the space and transformed it into a restaurant. Most recently, the restaurant was acquired by Daniel Reed Hospitality and remodeled to make improvements to the existing model which represents the latest adaptation as it stands today.
The design of the restaurant incorporates elements of iconic, archetypal New York City. The quirky, eclectic esthetic lends a sense of humor to the monumental, vast interior space which includes the buildings original exposed elements such as the steel windows, iron trusses, and solid wooden garage doors. The overall atmosphere results in a casual dining experience that works perfectly for lunch and special events.
Event hosts choose our venue because of it's superior menus and unique ambiance. Rooted in farm to table offerings that celebrate the areas finest, you know your guests will leave the event raving about the meal! The space may be rented as-is and accommodate 30-150; or cleared and used as a blank slate.
Daniel Reed Hospitality cares about your events success and is awaiting your email today!

My husband and I planned our wedding from upstate NY, and Leslie, the wonderful event coordinator, made it so easy! When we lived in Savannah, Soho was always one of my favorite brunch spots, and it made an even better wedding venue! We didn’t want a big ballroom wedding, and Soho was the exact vibe we wanted: unique, delicious food, intimate feel. We did our ceremony and reception here and it flowed very smoothly. I can’t speak highly enough of the Soho and Daniel Reed team– it was such a pleasure to work with them! From initial emails, to first payments, food tastings, final payments, to opening the bar for champagne before the ceremony began, the team executed it all flawlessly! If I could re-do my wedding (I wish!), I’d 110% host it at Soho again! It was fantastic! Jealous of future brides who decide to host here– you will be so happy you did!

Gorgeous, stunning, venue with excellent food and staff
My husband and I LOVE Soho as a restaurant (their grilled cheese and tomato bisque are unparalleled!) so when we got engaged and learned we could rent them out for our wedding, we were so in! The experience was incredible and our guests would not stop complimenting how gorgeous the venue was, how excellent the food was, and how the staff were incredible! You have so many options for appetizers, entrees, stations, drinks, etc.! The atmosphere for our wedding was romantic and gorgeously lit by candles. I’ve also seen photos where the venue is extremely eclectic and electrifying. Soho is very versatile and a great choice - the best choice - for a venue in Savannah!
