Onsite bar and catering services can be arranged or couples can bring in outside vendors of their choice.

History

The Thomas Jefferson Tower opened to the public in 1919 and celebrated the opening with a week-long gala. The ornate marble entrance hall and the large ballroom were its most impressive features. Over time, the building has hosted two Presidents and many other dignitaries. Unfortunately, in 1980 and 1981, devastating fires damaged the building and forced it to close for a period of time. In 2014 an investment group headed by Brian Beshara of New Orleans bought the building and transformed it into apartments and beautiful event spaces.

    Wonderful venue and staff!

    I had my son and daughter-in-law's rehearsal dinner in the Parlor and had a wonderful experience! The whole process from planning stage to the event was very easy. The event coordinator, Kristin, kept in contact with me through the whole process and I never had to "hunt" her down. I had so many wonderful compliments the night of the dinner and I couldn't have been more pleased! Also, Roots and Revelry provided the food for the dinner which was both delicious and convenient since they are right there in the TJ Tower!

    Perfect Wedding

    We had our wedding ceremony and reception. Used in house catering and the food was amazing. Our more than perfect coordinator made sure that our wedding day went off perfectly. Everything from the flowers to aisle to the wait staff and bartenders made our wedding the greatest! Best wedding venue in Birmingham, hands down.
