Private Parties




Book Your Next Event at River, Tuscaloosa’s Newest Dining Destination!


You and your guests will have an unforgettable experience at River, located in the heart of Tuscaloosa’s thriving entertainment district on the banks of the beautiful Black Warrior River.

Our private events room will accommodate up to 20 guests with access to a terrace overlooking the scenic Riverwalk. The terrace will allow for an additional 10-12 guests, and while it is not climate controlled, heaters and nano-walls can be brought in for a cozy experience.


This space is perfect for small rehearsal dinners and bridesmaid luncheons!  As many groups would prefer a cocktail and appetizer setting, we can add a roll up bar to the event for easy access to libations!


The entire restaurant is also available to rent Mondays while River is closed to the public; making a perfect setting for staff parties, receptions and other large gatherings.


Allow our chef and the events crew help you choose the ideal menu for your guests – from crisp flatbreads right out of our wood-burning stove to Gulf seafood, hand-cut steaks and salads full of fresh ingredients from local farmers! Compliment the meal with our wine and craft cocktail list, and finish with a signature dessert to enjoy all of the hallmarks of the River dining experience.
