Iron City

Join us at Iron City for a fun evening of food, bourbon tasting, raffle and live auction along with renowned wild game chef Rick Vonk.

Originally built in 1929 by L.H. Pennington, the buildings that have become the core of Iron City were once considered the most modern auto-industry facilities of their times. Iron City is the premier venue for an industrial meets chic soiree in the heart of downtown Birmingham. These buildings have been transformed into one of the most timeless and versatile venues in the south, hosting everything from concerts for rock and roll great to elegant weddings for Birmingham locals.
