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 25 guests with access to a terrace overlooking the scenic Riverwalk. The terrace will allow for an additional 15 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 on Sunday nights and Mondays while River is closed to the public, making a perfect setting for staff parties, receptions and other large gatherings.

Please let our events coordinator and Chef help you choose the ideal menu for your guests – from crisp flatbreads right out of our wood-burning stove to Gulf seafood, or hand-cut steaks and salads fresh from local farmers. Our wine and craft cocktail list as well as our signature desserts are hallmarks of the River dining experience. Contact us today so we can answer your questions and assist you in booking your next event on the Iconic Tuscaloosa Riverwalk.
