The Pavilion

More than 4,000 square feet of rustic stone, The Pavilion sits next door to Tuscaloosa's iconic Cypress Inn Restaurant and both overlook the beautiful Black Warrior River. Rich woodwork and natural hues are revealed by large iron chandeliers suspended from towering, beamed ceilings. Floor-to-ceiling retractable glass doors allow for entertaining on the riverfront – without the threat of a summer shower or wintry mix. Multiple level terraces, trickling fountains and covered decks and patios invite conversation outdoors. Manicured paths beckon guests to enjoy beautifully manicured gardens along the water’s edge.

The Pavilion’s graceful and spacious design epitomizes convenience and flexibility for a variety of events including weddings, wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, corporate events, charity functions, banquets, holiday parties and more.
