Bristol’s events industry is thriving! Besides being home to a large number of residential venues, the city has a wide and exciting variety of unique venues offering bespoke packages for meetings and events. Here are some suggestions including few of our hidden gems.

The Radnor Rooms

A building once known as The Radnor Hotel, was infamous for its accepting and thriving gay community as the premises operated as a pub with rooms, possibly as far back as the 1920’s. Having fallen into disrepair in more recent times, this Grade 2 listed building has been restored and adapted for modern day use by the Wolf family who see it as a mecca for creatives and business people.

The venue is located on St Nicholas Street, just a 10 minute walk from Bristol Temple Meads train station. Situated on the top floor of the building the Radnor Rooms offers a private welcome area, an open, light versatile room seating up to 70 guests and a private roof terrace with its own bar.  This venue is perfect for summer parties with bbq’s, exhibitions, meetings and social events.
