If you like music and history then the Carver is one of the 3 best places in Birmingham to visit. I've had the privilege of performing there on several occasions and I still get goosebumps. Anyone can rent the facility but I urge you to go doing a professional event. You won't be disappointed.

I rented the venue and had a horrible experience with the hostess/representative for the theater. I was always told first impressions is a lasting impression but I found the overall representation for rental of the theater was misleading. She was cordially in the beginning but as more information was needed she was very rude and unprofessional. You'd think a PAID IN FULL client would have access to information that is needed for their special event. I was also told by her that my event which ranges in the $$thousands of dollars was not considered a special event to sit in black fold up chairs. SMH Even after I mentioned that if there was an amount I would pay and she told me $50 but it would have to be approved by the Executive Director. I prayed for her because I really don't believe she even realized the damage that was done. I don't ever want to rent that venue or any other venue in Birmingham because of the way I was treated by her. It cost me $765 cash and was not FREE. I will not recommend rental to anybody at that location.

We've been to the Carver twice in the last couple of years to view Sidewalk Festival films and have been thoroughly impressed. The old lady has been restored and now hosts films and other shows, especially events related to the Jazz museum adjacent to the theater. The theater is in the historic 4th Avenue North district downtown and is simply a very cool place.

Nothing really inviting. ............

I love this place for the classic feel of it. I also like attending events here, because all the seats are good seats in proportion to the stage.
