My Sis­ter’s Room mov­ing to Mid­town

GA Voice - - News Briefs -

Three years ago, Jen­nifer Maguire and Jami Si­den con­ducted a poll and started ask­ing around on so­cial me­dia where the ideal lo­ca­tion for My Sis­ter’s Room should be. The re­sponse was over­whelm­ingly in fa­vor of Mid­town.

“The cus­tomers just wanted us in Mid­town; they said it ev­ery week­end, ‘ Go to Mid­town,’” says Si­den.

Maguire (known in the nightlife scene as pro­moter and em­cee Chase Daniels) and Si­den, her co-owner and life part­ner, lis­tened. In an April 22 Face­book post, they made the big an­nounce­ment that the lease had been signed and the move to Mid­town was in full swing.

MSR’s new home will be at 66 12th Street, a.k.a. the home of Twisted Taco for 10 years and cur­rently the Dead­wood Sa­loon un­til its lease runs out at the end of April. Maguire and Si­den are shoot­ing for a mid-July “re-grand open­ing” at the new lo­ca­tion. MSR in East At­lanta will re­main open un­til the move.

Also look for dif­fer­ent hours in Mid­town and no more be­ing open only three and a half days a week as they are now. They’re start­ing out at five days a week, and aim to be open seven days a week at some point in the fu­ture.

A fenced-in area in the back room for an ad­di­tional 500 peo­ple will open up for spe­cial events like At­lanta Pride, and they’re look­ing to build out the back pa­tio and add a gazebo to give more of an out­door feel like the pre­vi­ous lo­ca­tion in De­catur.
