Wedding Reception FANTASTIC
We hired the VIP Lounge for our evening reception (the day reception was on a barge that dropped us at BARCA) We had an amazing evening with 100+ friends and family - the band were playing, the sun was shining, too much dancing (my feet are still sore) and the food was delicious. We opted for Cheese boards, Pizzas, wedges, salad etc.... and they went down a storm - compliments to the chef. Huge thanks to Jade who was on call for every query and meltdown I had during the run up to the event; Jade you are a star :):) Everything ran like clockwork. Milly was on hand during the evening to ensure everything ran smoothly and the bar staff were amazing - always smiling with great personalities!!!! Everyone done a fantastic job and made the night so memorable. I can't thank you all enough - each and every one of our party had a fantastic time at a great venue - next stop the wedding vow renewals hahahahaha We want to do it all over again. Thank you BARCA

Fantastic wedding!
My wife and I got married at Barca Bar last weekend - the ceremony and reception were both held at the venue and we can't recommend it highly enough. Our guests and ourselves enjoyed a fantastic day. The venue is brilliantly located, the food and drink are great and the Barca staff are absolutely superb. Jade, Harry, Lauren and the entire Events Team made everything so simple for us, worked extremely hard and - even better - were great company and a good laugh! Thank you very much to everyone at Barca and for anyone considering this venue we'd urge you to go for it. Give Barca a shout so they can show you around and talk things through with you. Cheers to Barca!
