Well known for its live entertainment, the food here is excellent, though you need to venture into an area that appears abandoned at night. Was my first trip here, I will stop back when in the area. Excellent service!

Iron City is a great music venue in Birmingham. They also have a great bar and bartenders. Be prepared to stand unless you purchase tickets for a table, which are too pricey for me. Seating is very limited, but you should be dancing all night...More

I don't believe so. If you want to be one of the first ones in, you can eat at the Iron City Grill (have to spend $20) and they tend to let those people in first.

Not sure. Try calling the venue after it opens @ 5 p.m. Their number is 205.202.5483. I *think* you can, but am not sure.
