The Florida Aquarium in Channelside and Downtown Tampa has opened its doors to an entirely new event space that overlooks the city and the bustling Port Tampa Bay. With a capacity for over 200 people, The Florida Aquarium's new Rooftop Terrace is ready to host your next party, wedding, or celebration in Tampa.

The Rooftop Terrace will feature a new solar-panel-covered pavilion highlighting the importance of solar energy use in Tampa and will have ample space for guests to get out of the sun if it gets too hot. If you prefer to see the sunset, there will be plenty of opportunities as the sun sets through the Downtown Tampa skyline. The terrace itself will be large enough for guests to have space and observe the views from above.

Known for hosting incredible parties and soirees, The Florida Aquarium dazzles Tampa locals and visitors alike with annual events like Brews By The Bay, SeaGrapes, or, my personal favorite, Flow With The Fishes, where yoga is hosted for adults and children in front of the gorgeous coral reef exhibit. The Florida Aquarium goes all out for their events, and you can expect the same care and attention paid to your own.

If you want to throw one of the best weddings, parties, or events in Tampa, reserve your spot now at The Florida Aquarium's Rooftop Terrace. Check out 813area for more events and things to do in Tampa Bay.
