There are beautiful, unique, convenient, memorable places to have events all over the Birmingham area. We love them all but can confidently say there is nothing quite like an event at Sloss Furnaces!
One of the things that makes Sloss special is simply geography. We're located right next to Woodlawn, Downtown, Lakeview, Southside and a short drive from every corner of the City. We are part of the 99 neighborhoods as much as we are Over the Mountain. People come to Sloss to celebrate together.
Beside providing a breathtaking backdrop, Sloss provides several unique features you can't find anywhere else. This page will provide a glimpse of what we have to offer. Schedule a time for a tour and see for yourself.
