The Waterfront Room
With floor-to-ceiling views of the surrounding skyline and waterscape, the Waterfront Room is our most coveted venue for private events. The elevated setting located one level above the main dining room provides guests with a completely private experience. Guests can also enjoy a 270-degree viewpoint that overlooks downtown Tampa and the convergence of the Hillsborough River and the Garrison Channel.
The open concept floor plan with attached private balcony boasts just over 2,500 square feet that is perfect for corporate or private dinners, bridal showers, baby showers, small wedding ceremonies or any other event you can dream of. The versatile space can accommodate up to 90 seated guests, or a cocktail reception for up to 120 guests. Price ranges from $1,500 - $8,000.
