A baby shower is always cause for a wonderful celebration. You might want to gather your nearest and dearest girls together to get excited about the impending arrival; or it might be a low key affair with a couple of close family. Whatever you decide, there are some beautiful and relaxed venues in Bristol where you can gather to chat everything baby.
Cox & Baloney
Address: 182-184 Cheltenham Road, Bristol BS6
We have always loved the space at Cox & Baloney for when it comes to a celebration. As for the ladies that run it, nothing is too much trouble – so you can rest assured that if you wanted anything special, Cox & Baloney would accommodate. Why not indulge in the perfect afternoon tea with accompanying finger sandwiches and cakes? There is optional fizz for those able to have it, but also an impressive selection of teas. The space at Cox & Baloney is generous, so if you wanted to bring a group along you can sit in the jazzy and romantic back room, and proceed to toast the arrival of your little one.
The Ivy Clifton Brasserie
Address: 42 – 44 Calendonia Place, Bristol BS8
Perfect for special occasions, The Ivy has both sumptuous but comforting dishes and a beautifully decorated interior. If you are about to swap finery for nappies too, this might be a nice treat before your bundle arrives. The conservatory area is particularly stunning, with both dining seating and comfier areas. There is also some outside courtyard seating which lends itself to the spring and summer months. Whether you choose to indulge in some brunch, or something lighter like afternoon tea, you are sure to be looked after here.
Address: Berwick Drive, Bristol BS10
If you want a celebration but perhaps want to escape the hustle and bustle of Bristol’s centre, then Berwick Lodge provides the perfect escape without having to travel too far. This gorgeous retreat has exclusive event rooms that can be catered for your taste, in terms of decor and what you’d like on hand to eat and drink. Not to mention the gorgeous surroundings, which are cosy in the colder months and glorious when it is warmer. Speak to a member of their dedicated team to arrange the baby shower of your dreams.
Address: The Grove, Bristol BS1
With beautiful views of Bristol’s harbourside, Riverstation is a wonderful venue for a relaxed afternoon. If you’ve settled on a meal, you can book in to the restaurant which is on the top level and mainly made of glass, so you are able to immerse yourselves in Bristol’s culture. However if you do want more of a relaxed affair, the downstairs bar area is a great spot to sit and watch the world go by.
No.4 Clifton Village
Address: The Rodney Hotel, 4 Rodney Place BS8
This gorgeous Georgian townhouse is the perfect setting for a special celebration. Sit in the plush gardens or in the venue where they specialise in making your occasion as perfect as possible for you.
