Hunstville, AL | MidCity District
We are thrilled to have a front row seat for a new lifestyle hotel just across from the Amphitheatre at MidCity where musicians will gather, rest and reload before they jam out just across the street. There’s a rich history of innovation in this region between the movement of music that happened with FAME Studios in The Shoals to reaching for the stars and landing on the Moon with Dr. Werner Von Braun in Huntsville. There is an extraordinary legacy of cultural and scientific influence that has shaped the way people understand and interpret their own experiences which you will only find at MidCity!
