At South of Johnston we put in that bit extra to create great events for our guests. The space transforms with linen, glassware, flowers and lighting depending on the mood and time of the year. The ingredients that we use are all ethically sourced from small producers and we use local products as much as possible. All of our meats are free range and everything we serve is handmade. We also like to offer a choice of wines and beverages sourced from both local and overseas regions.
Sojo offers a lot of flexibility for those that have special dietary requirements to ensure that all our customers feel comfortable and attended to. The space was designed for both daytime and evening use in mind and completely transforms at night. Parking is easy in the evening and the space is a quiet sanctuary. We all dress in black for the events and make sure we have the right amount of staff on hand to look after everyone.
We generally mix formality with informality by having drinks and canapés on arrival, shared seasonal produce of generous proportions; placed in the middle of the tables (getting the chatter started) and moving onto desert and any other festivities that may be required such as speeches, cake cutting, presentations etc.
We all enjoy the functions we hold here immensely and they have ranged from birthdays to boutique weddings, corporate events, to Xmas parties and a few things in between.
