Racks Bar and Kitchen is the private party venue Bristol is talking about. We offer free venue hire, private dining, amazing Summer parties and a wide choice of party food options that will tantalise your taste buds but not break the bank. Whatever the occasion, we will go out of our way to make sure you and your guests have a fantastic time!

Racks is the ideal backdrop for your special event. Whether you are looking to dance the night away in our contemporary Playroom, or find a small and cosy alcove for an intimate gathering, there is sure to be a space that suits your needs. As the most flexible venue hire Bristol has around, we can also host corporate meetings and professional events with projector facilities and a range of catering options.

For free venue hire and the best BBQs around, Bristol locals and visitors flock to the Racks terrace. Aside from our many indoor spaces we have a large outdoor offering – perfect for al fresco Summer parties, barbecues and refreshing drinks in the sun. A section of the terrace can be booked in conjunction with hire of the playroom or as a standalone space. During the cooler months, our Pavilion is the perfect place to host your outdoor event in Bristol. The Pavilion is our heated and covered terrace area, with the entire area under cover and powerful heaters there’s no need to worry about what the weather may bring. 

From black-tie events to casual dining – choose from one of our great menus and enjoy the lively atmosphere!
