Top Level Event Room
What used to be the back of a projection booth in the 1930s has been transformed to an elegant space for hosting memorable events. It boasts coffered ceilings, a teardrop chandelier, and four windows and two doors overlooking the square, which feature transoms with decorative etching that can be seen from inside as well as from outside. The etching is a replica of transom etchings at The Strand when it was first constructed. The premier space can accommodate 64 guests for a seated & served luncheon or dinner, and up to 115 for a cocktail party.
The Strand’s premier top level event space opens to an open-air terrace where guests enjoy a view of the Marietta Square and the lively Glover Park. From the far end of the terrace, guests may take in the beautiful scenery of Kennesaw Mountain. The terrace can accommodate 48 guests for a seated dinner and up to 100 for a cocktail party.
Second Floor Event Room
Historically, the second floor event space in The Strand housed Loudermilk Studios, the premier photography studio in town ten decades ago. Many of the historic photos of the square and The Strand were photographed by Mr. Horace Loudermilk himself. The space was and still is the brightest in the building, featuring six oversized windows across the front. Now, it also features cherry floors, coffered ceilings, and three beautiful chandeliers rescued from a historic hotel in Atlanta. Just outside the room is a Fine Art Gallery space featuring local artists’ work. The space can accommodate 64 guests for a seated and served luncheon or dinner, and up to 100 for a cocktail party.
