Fully licensed wedding venue in Bristol

The Ceremony

We are proud to be fully licensed for ceremonies and civil partnerships. Ceremonies take place in our light, contemporary space, which can seat up to 60 guests. With our marble altar set up in front of our floor-to-ceiling gilt mirror, the ceremony set-up feels intimate yet spacious.

Wedding Breakfast

After the ceremony, your expertly prepared wedding breakfast will be served in our restaurant The Square Kitchen – choose from one of our delicious wedding breakfast menus. The large restaurant area is great for speeches and a special area can be set aside for cutting the cake.

The Reception

Later, The Square transforms into one of the premier wedding reception venues in Bristol. Our Lower Deck Cocktail Bar is complete with a dancefloor and music license – we can recommend or arrange a DJ, or of course, you’re more than welcome to bring your own. The Lower Deck also comes with the use of our outdoor, heated Terrace which is perfect for the summer. Or in the winter months, enjoy our Secret Garden; a cosy, heated space away from the party. Indulge in a cocktail or two, and enjoy the unique versatility of the wedding venue in Bristol with your friends and family.


To top it off, our hotel, The Berkeley Square, has 42 rooms and 5 luxury Berkeley Suites. After the event, your guests can retire to a hotel room, enjoy the perfect stay and breakfast together in the morning. We have a dedicated reservations team that can assist with organising your guests’ bookings, and set up exclusive group discounts for you. For more information, call 0117 946 7469 or email them here.

Wedding Packages

To help you in the planning stages of your perfect wedding day we’ve put together a few wedding packages and menus based on popular requests and our experience of successful events at our wedding venue. These can be taken as they stand or simply used as inspiration. The choice is yours, we have an in-house events manager to talk you through the entire process.

Start with the basics, which include our venue hire and complimentary membership to the club. Then choose from one our great packages to suit your needs for the day.

Looking for something a bit more relaxed? We have private dining and summer party packages that are perfect for a more modest reception.

Does the venue have wheelchair access?

We have wheelchair access throughout the venue’s indoor areas via ramps and a lift, however unfortunately the terrace and garden aren’t wheelchair accessible. Please do let us know in advance if you will need the ramps.

Can I bring my own band or DJ?

You can bring your own DJ for your special day! We have our own in-house PA system tailored to the venue, and you or your DJ will be more than welcome to come in and see our space and system requirements. We also have our own resident DJ which we can book for you should you wish. Unfortunately, we are unable to have bands play here at The Square Club.

Can we dress the venue as we wish?

The wedding venue in Bristol is yours for the day, so dress it how you wish (within reason!) On the day, leave it to us to set up your decorations – we take pride in making your day as stress-free as possible.

What about the outside of the venue?

Unfortunately, as we’re a listed building on the historic Berkeley Square, we’re unable to give you the option of decorating outside the building. This does include throwing confetti outside the venue or in the square’s gardens – but please do feel free to throw it inside the venue. Rest assured that leafy gardens and beautiful Georgian houses of Berkeley Square make an ideal backdrop for your photos without any added extras!

Speaking of venue dressing - what about the art on the walls?
Our in-house art exhibitions run on a 6-monthly basis and features work from local artists. We hope you will love it as much as we do!

All the pieces are also for sale – and as wedding members, you will be entitled to a 20% discount off the listed artwork price – just ask one of our friendly team for more information. Taking home one of the unique pieces featured in your wedding photographs is a perfect memento of the day.

Do you provide tablecloths?

We can provide white linen tablecloths on request if you choose to have your tables clothed.

Have you got highchairs?

Yes, the venue can provide a small number of highchairs – please let us know in advance if you will need them.

Can I bring alcoholic favours?

We understand that alcohol is often a great choice as favours for your guests and so allow them for only a small corkage of £2 per person for up to 50ml.

Where can we park our car?
Guests of the Berkeley Square Hotel (adjacent to The Square Club) can reserve a parking space on checkin for £16/night – this will have to be arranged through the Hotel’s reception.

Short-stay parking is available on the Berkeley Square itself, using pay-and-display. After 6pm, you can also park on the single-yellow lines free of charge.

Long-stay parking is available at the West End multi-storey carpark, a 3-minute walk from the Square. It is located at the top of Jacob’s Wells Road, BS8 1EH.

Can you cater for dietary requirements and allergies?

We are happy to cater for all dietary requirements, but request that you let our wedding coordinator know well in advance, along with all the rest of your menu pre-orders, so that she can advise our chefs accordingly.

What are your licensing restrictions?

On Fridays and Saturdays music can be played, and drinks can be served until 12am; you then have a 30-minute ‘winding down’ time for people to finish their drinks and say their goodbyes.
Other days vary so do check in with our wedding coordinator to confirm timings.
We just request that you leave the wedding venue in Bristol quietly and are respectful to your neighbours.

What about corkage and cakeage?

For wine, our corkage £10/bottle, and for fizz, our corkage £15/bottle.

You’re more than welcome to bring your own cake, but if you would like this to be sliced by our kitchen and served to your guests, we charge a £1 per person “cakeage” fee. Please let us know in advance if you will be bringing your own cake as we have several options for displaying and serving it.

Can I book a room in the hotel - and how about hotel accommodation for my guests?
Our central hotel reservations team will be happy to help you book the rooms you require. Simply give them a call on 0117 946 7469 or email reservations@cliftonhotels.com

The Berkeley Square Hotel adjoins the Square and has 42 guest rooms and 5 luxury suites. (These are perfect for getting ready in, and photograph wonderfully.) We also have several sister hotels located in Clifton Village, a 10 minute walk away.
