Whether you’re celebrating a momentous occasion or simply want to throw an unforgettable event, we’re sharing five Black-owned event venues that’ll help you host the event of your dreams.

1. Avenue D Events

Avenue D is one of the newest Black-owned event venues on the block. From the minds of Laura Turner and Chuck Riley, this new spot combines whimsical vibes, elegant features and even an outdoor patio for the perfect event venue.

Bonus points: each one of their bathroom’s has a different theme. Their Golden Girls’ bathroom was a hit in our book!

2. Asthetik Birmingham | Downtown

Asthetik Bham is a newer spot that is taking Birmingham by storm. Dontez and Jamie Heard, owners of the space, are also photographers/creative directors, so they know the challenge of shooting in the perfect space. They decided to create one and share it with local photographers and planners for the ultimate event venue.

With floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed brick and more, it looks like Birmingham is enjoying the space. Check out their Insta for inspiration!

2. Ensley Soho | Ensley

Ensley Soho in the Ensley Historic District is a community staple. It’s a restored building that offers banquet, reunion, wedding and party space. Plus, who says that this venue is only for big gatherings? It’s actually been used for a couple of photoshoots for magazines.

Be sure to check out more of the space on their Facebook.

3. Avery’s Event Center

Avery’s Event Center is located in North Birmingham and provides you and your guests a versatile space that can be used for weddings, birthday parties, gender reveals and so much more.

This venue also loves to host small businesses in their space for pop ups and smaller events.

Located in the heart of Birmingham’s Theater District, this music gallery stays true to the theme of jazz. Fun fact: it was actually inspired by the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame!
