What is...

South Twenty

The goal of the South 20 Network Club is to provide its members, both men and women, a quiet sanctuary from the hustle of daily living.  It is not intended to be an exclusive club, but to provide an ambiance different than anywhere else locally.

It is intended to create a quiet, relaxing and comfortable environment and includes members who will be respectful of each other and the club.

Membership is open to everyone.  Applications for membership can be made online or in person.

The South 20 is not a bar or restaurant, but a private club for use by its members and guests.  You do not visit the South 20, you experience it.

Interested in a

Trial Membership?

We really want you to experience everything the South 20 has to offer the community.  A quiet, relaxing and safe retreat from the hustle and bustle of the everyday.  Enjoy a glass of wine or beer after a long day, with a colleague or spouse/partner, high-end appetizers, and unique entertainment.  

You don't visit South 20, you experience it!

Why join

South 20

The South 20 is not a bar or restaurant, but a private club for use by its members and their guests. The South 20 is a warm, congenial, social environment. A broad range of drinks are available.

During the daily cocktail hour, appetizers are served along with drinks. Food is available from several local restaurants with the South 20 paying for the additional cost of delivery.

Atmosphere

The physical characteristics and atmosphere are striking, upscale and unique. The online pictures, or even better, viewing the facility through a complimentary one-month trial membership, will surprise you that you can have this experience in Morris. The 125+ year-old restored copper ceilings, exposed bricks, chandeliers, 21 foot deep dry artisan stone-lined well and wooden hand-created bar create the image of a speakeasy.

Memberships

The membership is not based on social exclusiveness, but in a desire for a quiet, amiable, social atmosphere.  Membership is open to the public.  You can join online, call (815) 513-3676 or email for a personal appointment, tour, and complimentary drink.

Family Friendly

Children are welcome at the South 20.

Private Parties & Small Groups

Private parties and South 20 planned formal dinners with wine or whiskey pairings are catered. The wooden hand-crafted bar seats 12 guests. The social area contains seating arrangements for 2 to 30 within a warm, colorful setting!

The South 20 offers an alternative to entertaining at home. Members can reserve the club for a catered dinner, buffet, or cocktail party on Sunday and Monday. Tuesday through Saturday the South 20 can provide you a venue for small groups (10 – 15 people) with appetizers or snacks without a fee.

It was the Morris car show Saturday. We had 4 relatives in from England. It looked like it was going to pour so we happened into the place for a drink and possible shelter. The waitress was BEYOND SWEET!! She was inviting, cordial, very attentive for as busy as it was! The place is gorgeous, relaxing, classy !! I am seriously thinking of becoming a member and I don't even drink just to bring my friends in that DO!!! IT WAS LOVELY!! But always most important the service was TOP NOTCH!!!

Great food and atmosphere for members only. A place to have quiet conversations, drinks and interact with others. Highly recommend.

My Euchre Party was a BLAST!  Everyone really enjoyed themselves…and your staff was wonderful!  Six of the players were from Buckingham, IL and they loved S20.  It always helps to “spread the word” about the place.

We had a great time. The girls behind the bar were awesome. Thank you again

I just wanted to share how awesome your team was last night in accommodating and going out of their way to make sure that we had everything we needed for our meeting with the Morris Lions Club.  It was particularly nice being seated by the door, we were distant from the 'bar noise' and also close to the door to easily allow entry for our guests.

They had space saved for us, made sure the table had snacks and were very attentive to make sure that everyone at our table had fresh drinks and was taken care of.  Not what you'd expect from a 'bar'.  Sure, you typically get the first round, but they kept checking on us to make sure we were still good throughout the night and would bring any drinks to my guests that were needed.  No one really had to leave the table, which is ideal for a meeting.

Thank you so much to South 20 and these fabulous ladies for braving the weather and coming to Galentines day at South 20 on Tuesday. I really enjoyed meeting and crafting with each of you. Thank you so much for sharing a piece of your heart with me. I hope we can craft together again soon

As some clients know, I am getting married at the end of this month and I’m so happy I recently had my bridal shower at South 20! I highly recommend S.20 as the venue for any event as it served as the perfect carefree, fun backdrop for my special day. And hey, I cater there too 😉

We had a wonderful event and I cannot say how helpful Mary was to us. She made my shower go so smoothly and my mom was very thankful for her! She gave us amazing service.
S20 was the talk of the shower and so many friends and family remarked how they would love to have events there was well. Thank you again for letting us have it there!
