No roommate? No problem. Living on your own can seem daunting, but this guide to Birmingham apartments will help you get situated in your own place (aka: your platform from which to conquer the world)!

1. Pawnee Square birmingham-apartment-pawnee-square.jpg

The scenic views from your balcony at Pawnee Square will be the icing on the cake of your relaxing day in. You’ll never be far from downtown activities, but your apartment can be a place for peace and quiet (but not TOO quiet, Pawnee Square is very pet-friendly, so be sure to bring your pup along).

2. Fourth

Avondale is a great place for singles. Fourth apartments are within walking distance to countless restaurants and bars (Avondale brewing Company, Saturn and Fancy’s on fifth to name a few) that are all great places to meet up with friends or go on a first date. You’ll also be near Avondale park, a great place for a relaxing afternoon. 

3. Crowne on 10th

Birmingham apartments don’t get much better than Crowne on 10th. The clubhouse and resort-style pool are great places to make friends or meet a potential partner. Have someone in mind? The outdoor grilling station gives you the perfect excuse to host a get-together and invite the cute guy from work. He’s sure to be impressed by your place.

4. Steel City Flats

The affordable and spacious studios at Steel City Flats are the perfect place to start out on your own. They’re newly renovated to give you the best bang for your buck, and the location couldn’t be better. You’ll be near Vulcan park and Five Points, both great places to experience all that Birmingham has to offer (and maybe pick up a date)!

5. Redmont Gardens birmingham-apartment-redmont-gardens.jpg

Located in Mountain Brook’s English Village, these Birmingham apartments are perfectly situated for a lunch date. The many restaurants and shops make the area perfect for a successful first date. (Browsing at Henhouse Antiques after brunch at Chez Lulu is sure to impress anyone.) And, of course, there’s always plenty to do on your own. The large, open rooms will give you all the space you need for relaxing at home or inviting over a few friends.
