Space Available at Bird & Jim:

We have a back area, the chandelier room, that is part of our main dining zone.  It accommodates up to 70 people.  This area is not walled off.  It is typically set up with tables and is primarily used as part of our regular nightly dining.  Our restrooms are located at the far end of this area.  Because of the lack of walls and the restroom location the room cannot be private.
