What’s not to love about the shifting seasons and picturesque scenery of Alabama? (Don’t come at us about the pollen!) What perhaps we enjoy most are the variety and quality of Huntsville outdoor venues that allow us to take in both. Whether you’re organizing a small or large gathering, here are some of our favorite outdoor locations to “take it outside” when planning your next event.
Burritt on the Mountain is a beautiful historical park, Huntsville’s first museum in fact, perched atop Monte Sano Mountain, boasting an expansive 3000-square-foot overlook that offers some of the city’s most stunning views. Featuring a charming gazebo, ample seating, and a range of delectable refreshments, it is the ideal spot to savor a captivating sunset and toast to the success of your next event.
Preservation Company, situated in the heart of downtown, is a lovely renovated historic building featuring a rustic outdoor event area. Apart from its own history, it brings together unique historical elements from all over the world. You see, that’s because its “day job” is serving as an architectural rescue and resale store. The Preservation Company’s stunning architectural elements provide a unique backdrop for receptions, dinners, and corporate events.
Leigh Acres, situated just outside Huntsville, is a vast 11-acre open-air space with enchanting murals, a large lake, and a charming barn. Whether planning a large corporate gathering, an outdoor concert, or a family reunion with outdoor games, this venue’s ample size can accommodate your needs. Leigh Acres is an idyllic location to create everlasting memories.
If you yearn for a nostalgic venue, look no further than the Lost Highway Lounge. Tucked behind the Yellowhammer Brewery, this relaxed venue can accommodate 150 guests and boasts a spacious patio. Live music, delectable pizzas from Earth and Stone, and an array of handcrafted beverages are available here too. Beer AND Pizza? Yes, please!
Huntsville also boasts many rooftop bars that provide awe-inspiring views of the city! From Baker and Able topping off the beautiful 106 Jefferson hotel to Stella’s Elixir Lounge and Rhythm on Monroe located at the Von Braun Center, each venue boasts distinct panoramic vistas, cozy fire pits, heaters, and an upscale ambiance unique to the rooftop setting.
To be sure, the Rocket City has a plethora of ideal locations for any occasion. Whether you prefer a tranquil nature-filled atmosphere or a cosmopolitan vibe, Huntsville outdoor venues cater to all tastes and preferences.
So why not round up your family and friends and embark on an adventure exploring these fantastic venues!
