History

Originally built in 1929 by L.H. Pennington, the buildings that have become the core of Iron City Birmingham have had a long history in the auto industry and left a lasting impression on the Southside landscape. Our historic location was considered one of the most modern car facilities of its time. It is fitting that Iron City’s reconstruction was driven by another entrepreneur in the car business, Steve DeMedicis.

In a design envisioned by Steve DeMedicis, two existing buildings were connected and underwent extensive renovation. The result is a world class music venue in a two floor layout which includes three stages, state of the art sound and video systems, two bars and a restaurant.

Today, it’s the most inspired music and event venue in the city, and we can’t wait to share it with you.
