In 2008, the building went through $250,000 worth of renovation with new carpets, hardwood floors, better audio, visuals, upgraded kitchen appliances, fresh paint, new bar, resurfaced parking lot, and an intimate garden.

    The Barristers Club was such a wonderful venue for our wedding ceremony and reception! Our party of 100 guests fit perfectly in their elegant ballroom, with plenty of room left for buffet tables and the dance floor. I cannot recommend their events director, Karen, enough! From the day we first met with her to the day of our wedding, she was always ready to offer her creativity and expertise, and with her attention to detail, she was so very helpful with the planning stages and making sure everything ran smoothly the day of the wedding. All in all, the Barristers Club was a wonderful choice for our wedding venue!
