Why We Like This Place

Just a few enticing reasons to host your reception at The Bristol:
• A warm and inviting atmosphere: This American grill restaurant’s design is cozy and unpretentious, with exposed-brick walls, polished-wood floors and tabletops, and a unique touch—lighting provided by simple hanging light bulbs.

• Your own private dining room: The spacious room on the second floor is an intimate venue for small groups, and includes a dedicated sound system, flat screen TV, and art gallery.

• The entire restaurant can be yours: Want a more exclusive experience for a larger group? Book the whole place!

• Foodies will love The Bristol: The locally sourced and sustainable menu draws its flavors from Mediterranean influences and changes with the seasons.

• You can imbibe in style: They offer a wine list of over 200 producers and a catalog of beers from around the world.
