The Cedar Room

The 7,500 square-foot venue can accommodate parties and celebrations of up to 550 people standing and 300 people seated with an option to host 150 people outside in the courtyard for ceremonies. The space features a built-in bar, catering kitchen and a courtyard with an additional 1,500 square feet. Originally built in 1881, the Cigar Factory served as a textile factory, a cotton mill and then a cigar factory for over 60 years. During the 1930s, the factory was the largest private employer in Charleston with about 1,400 workers generating more than 400,000 cigars daily. In 1980, the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places. Thirty-five years later, the building was transformed to a multi-functional space with business, retail, food and beverage, and a one-of-a-kind event space called The Cedar Room. As part of The Indigo Road Restaurant Group, The Cedar Room offers an elevated catering menu for reception-style events and seated dinners from exclusive caterer, Mercantile and Mash. Led by executive chef Tim Morton and pastry chef Charles Talucci, Mercantile is committed to supporting local, organic and sustainable food vendors that is reflected in their seasonal, high-quality and fresh dishes.
