How Do I Enter the Building?
There are three entrances to Southern Folly and Sweet Ivy's at the Southern Folly.
1. You can enter through the entrance off E. Commerce Street, through the black door covered by the ivy arch. This door leads directly into our Music Hall and large dining area.
2. You can enter through the garden patio of Sweet Ivy's Cafe off Market St. This gate leads directly into our patio and fire pit seating. Follow the path back to the door leading directly into Sweet Ivy's Cafe.
3. You can enter through our gift shop door right off Market St. Located under the black awning on the side of the building facing the main Market St. drag, this door opens up into our gift shop. Filled with Tyler candles, bluebonnet seeds, clothing, jewelry, and more from local artisans, you never know what treasures and trinkets you'll find.
