Private Parties

Party Venues in Tampa FL

The Florida Aquarium has perfectly unique party venues in Tampa, FL that will make your event a night to remember. Located in downtown Tampa, directly on the Channel, the Florida Aquarium features 200,000 square feet of air conditioned space to enjoy with friends and associates. Our modern facility features beautiful exhibits which feature animals native to Florida and beyond to enhance your event.

In addition, our facility features two large lobbies which are tiled for dancing. Private event locations within the exhibits can be used creatively, such as having a jazz lounge in front of our 500,000 gallon floor-to-ceiling Coral Reef tank, or a dessert room in Shark Bay. The modern architecture and layout of our private event locations allows for flexibility and creativity for themed events that add a special individual 'touch' to your event. Look no further than The Florida Aquarium for one of the best event locations in town.


At The Florida Aquarium, we will help you plan the event of your dreams in any of our event venues and galleries! We offer several private event location options for special events and an Event Professional will assist you in choosing the best scenario for your group.
