Welcome to the South End
Your destination for events, rain or shine
Private dining at the Pub. Located at the south end of the Short’s Bellaire brewery, The South End is a short drive from Traverse City, Charlevoix, or Petoskey, and a quick trip up from Grand Rapids, Chicago, and Detroit making it the perfect location for rehearsal dinners, business retreats, and community events. (We’ve even got an AirBNB upstairs if that’s your thing.)
White Peppers or white linens?
We can scale the fancy to tickle your fancy
Order from the menu or select a buffet-style meal with your favorite Pub fare and crowd-pleasers like byo-taco bars. Drinks you say? No visit to Short’s would be complete without a pint or two of our award-winning liquid libations, with 20 drafts including craft beer, cider, plus canned wine, limited-edition bottle releases, and non-alcoholic beverages.

We’re onsite at the Short’s Bellaire Brew Pub:

Capacity for The South End is 40 people seated, and 50 people standing. We’ll need your final headcount seven days prior to your event.
Any groups over 15 should order off our buffet menu to reduce your wait and ensure your food comes out at the same time, especially during high-volume business. Parties of 15 or less, you’re welcome to order from our menu or plan a buffet.

If the event is canceled less than 20 days prior to the date of the event 50% of the established invoice is due or $150 flat fee if ordering off of the regular menu. If the event is canceled with less than 10 days notice prior to the event date then 100% of the established invoice is due or $300 flat fee if ordering off of the regular menu.

Inclement weather is a thing up here. In the case that an event has to be canceled due to Mother Nature, we will make every effort to try and reschedule the event within 14 days of the original date. If the event is unable to be rescheduled, the deposit will be forfeited. Short’s Brewing also maintains compliance with all government regulations and orders and will work with the party to modify arrangements as needed. If the party cannot be accommodated due to such restrictions no cancellation fee is due and the deposit will be returned.
