My Sister’s Room moving to Midtown
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.
