Best Decision We Made! Such A Unique Venue!
I cannot say enough good things about the Bridge Club. This venue was an absolute dream to have for our wedding day! Before finding the Bridge Club, we looked at several other venues and they were all overpriced and felt like a wedding mill. However, once we found the Bridge Club, it was a done deal! Not only do they have options for smaller events and larger events, but the space is incredibly modern without feeling stuffy. We wanted our wedding to feel like a large but intimate dinner party and that’s exactly what we got! Jeramy and Jessie were incredibly gracious and helpful with everything from how to utilize the tvs to customizing a menu to fit our needs! Speaking of food, IT IS THE BEST FOOD IN TOWN! I raved about it for the entire year while planning our wedding and this is one of the only places I felt 100% confident that it would live up to all the hype! The apps, the platters, the mac and cheese, oh my! Definitely be prepared to EAT if you are getting married here – I stuffed my face and I have no regrets. Everything from start to finish was incredible at the Bridge Club. I would choose to have our wedding here over and over because they offer so many delicious food options and really, the space is beautiful without even adding anything to it! It was so nice to not have to worry about rental linens or china and to have the catering and bar-tending built in! Overall, the Bridge Club is hands down everything we could have wanted in a venue: great location, accommodating, amazing food and alcohol, friendly and knowledgeable staff and an absolutely beautiful space!Sent on 10/28/2018

Stunning Location, Unbelievable Service, Unique Vibe
We hosted our December wedding at Bridge Club, and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out! We were looking for a low maintenance venue that took care of all the details for us, and we found just that! We didn't have to worry about having 10 different vendors--aside from flowers, the DJ, photographer, and officiant--Bridge Club took care of everything BEAUTIFULLY. Jeramy was so responsive to all of my emails and Kyle, our night of event manager, pulled everything off without a hitch. Our wedding guests are STILL talking about the food (highly recommend the fried chicken with hot honey appetizer and mac and cheese) and how much fun they had on the dancefloor. One thing I'd like to point out is that we had a very high maintenance group for special dietary needs, including several guests with celiac disease. Bridge Club was so accomodating to this and went out of their way to make a gluten free version of the appetizers and sides we served, including the mac and cheese. The only disadvantage to this location is the size. We had a group of 93 and felt it was perfect, but there was definitely a cozy vibe--no large open spaces. Also, if you're looking for lots of customization, this might not be the venue for you. We loved having to do less work, but still have such a unique and stunning result! The venue was gorgeous without needing much decoration and our wedding photos turned out great, despite being an indoor venue. Highly recommend!Sent on 02/13/2019

Unbelievably wonderful experience (and value!)
The team at the Bridge Club was professional and responsive to our needs every step of the way. We wanted an evening that our friends and family would enjoy, but that would be elegant and reflective of our tastes. We also didn't want to break the bank. The Bridge Club, because they cook all food in-house (and it is among the best food in Raleigh, to be clear) seems to put less emphasis on up-charging; the space rental fees were surprisingly low and they provided everything else we needed, like cutlery and dishes. To reiterate, the amount I am providing to WeddingWire that we paid for this vendor included everything: The space, the food, the alcohol, the tables, the cuttlery, the dishes, and the staff (which included two dedicated bars and several staff members that were responsive to the needs of guests all evening).Sent on 02/08/2019
The night-of staff members were spectacular. We had some serious issues with our DJ and photo booth (long story short, they didn't show up and sent strangers to cover), but Kyle and his staff were able to sort everything out (even though it was nowhere near their responsibility!). At one point in the evening, my husband had a glass knocked out of his hand and two staff members showed up within moments: One to clean up the glass and make sure everyone was safe and one to take his drink order to replace it! Truly outstanding service all around.
I would also like to note that the Ashley Christensen (AC) restaurant group reflected our personal values perfectly; we chose to share our special day with them because they have a strong, persistent vision of a better Raleigh and a better world (down to their liquor offerings being reflective of the distiller's practices toward the LGBT community!). We wanted our wedding to reflect the beauty of the world as we wish it to be, and the team at AC Restaurants were perfect partners in achieving that.
This venue offers the below options which may impact pricing:
I loved working with the team at the Bridge Club on a April 1st wedding this year. They were very easy to work with during the planning, super responsive to my questions. And they take care of so much, which made planning all the extra details easier, knowing the basics were well taken care of. I look forward to working with The Bridge Club again!
