“Before 5″ Networking Recap” Venue Tour | The Tampa Club

Located at the highest accessible point in the heart of downtown Tampa, The Tampa Club offers panoramic birds-eye views of the city over 40 stories high from within the iconic Bank of America Plaza.

The private business and social club recently completed a $1.7 million dollar renovation which included updates to the Canopy Ballroom, expansion of the View42 restaurant (originally The Grille), and outdoor dining on the 42nd-floor terrace, making it the highest outdoor private dining experience in America, which includes stunning views of downtown Tampa all the way to the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.

Featuring multiple event spaces with floor-to-ceiling windows, the elegant event space features a two-story grand staircase highlighted by a blown glass chandelier, private wine room, and cozy lounge.

Ceremonies take place in the Channel View Room, overlooking Tampa's thriving Channelside district, with receptions in the newly renovated Canopy Ballroom for dinner and dancing, which can accommodate up to 140 seated guests or up to 250 for a cocktail reception.

Tampa wedding photographer Joyelan Photography captured the smiles as vendors noshed on brunch items and sipped mimosas during the unveiling of the new space during our Marry Me Tampa Bay “Before 5” vendor networking event.
