Hours of Availability
The Inn is available for your Dinner Party weekday evenings (sorry, not Saturdays) for 3 hours. Suggested times are 6:00 – 9:00 pm, 7:00 – 10:00 pm, and 8:00 – 11:00 pm. (Because the Inn is located in a residential neighborhood, evening events must end by 11:00 pm).
Reservation and Security Deposit
For Dinner Parties, a $2,000 non-refundable Reservation Deposit is due at contract signing in order to reserve the Inn. A $500 Security Deposit is required two weeks before your event and is refundable two weeks after your event. Any loss or damage to the Inn will be deducted from the Security Deposit.
For your convenience, you may charge the second payment (due four months before your event) and the third (final) payment (due two weeks before your event). Your Reservation and Security Deposits must be paid in either cash or by check.
Taxes and Gratuity
Georgia sales tax (currently 6%) will be added to your Dinner Package. There is no charge for gratuity.
The Whitlock Inn is not licensed to sell alcohol. If you would like to make alcoholic beverages available to your guests, you may provide your own alcohol and our caterers will supply a professional, insured Bartender for alcohol service. You may opt for a limited Wine, Beer and Champagne Service or a Full Bar, Mixed Drinks Service. To help you plan for your event, our caterer has prepared a chart of suggested quantities of alcohol to purchase for events at The Whitlock Inn. For your protection, and ours, we reserve the right to close the bar.
Guests coming to the Whitlock Inn may park in the SunTrust Bank lot adjacent to The Whitlock Inn, except weekdays from 9 am to 5 pm, banking hours. Guests may also park at the Historic Anderson Mansion, next door to the Inn. With permission, your guests may also use the First United Methodist Church lot across Whitlock Avenue from The Whitlock Inn. After 6 pm, there is parking around the Marietta Square. An off-duty police officer will be available an hour before and an hour into each event to assist guests with parking.
