Weddings at Chatham Bars Inn

Luxury and Grandeur, Just Steps From The Sea

The Atlantic Ocean takes center stage at our magnificent waterfront wedding venue, serving as an intriguing and ever-changing backdrop for your big day. Chatham Bars Inn remains the only luxury destination on Cape Cod where you can hold a toes-in-the-sand ceremony, right on our private beach. Founded in 1914, Chatham Bars Inn grew to be Cape Cod’s premier luxury destination, marrying timeless character and discreet charms with the sophisticated comforts of today.
