Our Wedding Venues
As Cape Cod’s premier waterfront wedding venue, Chatham Bars Inn offers a variety of spaces for both your ceremony and your reception. Whether you’re looking for an intimate toes-in-the-sand beach wedding or an expansive tented event on our lawn, we’re here to create the perfect atmosphere for your big day.
Need some inspiration? Over the years, we’ve held some incredible events at Chatham Bars Inn. Here are just a few ideas to get you thinking about what's possible:
Example Reception Events
Enjoy our authentic clambake, customized just for you. You’ll feast on lobster, corn, potatoes, clams and anything else you might want. All seafood is locally caught around Chatham and all produce is sourced from the Chatham Bars Inn farm.
If you want to keep your event going well into the evening, you might want to consider a bonfire on the beach. Bonfires can be big parties or intimate engagements - it’s up to you.
Croquet & Mimosa Brunch
Make your wedding brunch extra-refined with croquet and mimosas on our lawn. We’ll create a classy-yet-comfortable ambience that’s perfect for socializing and thanking your wedding guests for spending the day with you.
Excursion to Nantucket
Hop on one of our boats and cruise over to Nantucket Island for the day. You’ll walk the charming cobblestone streets, visit quaint shops and galleries, and dine at one of grey lady’s many seaside restaurants.
Winter Whiskey Bar
Just because your event is in the winter doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the beach! We’ll set up a whiskey bar on our private beach so that you and your guests can keep warm and enjoy the great outdoors - even in the snow.
Treat your guests to a meal they’ll never forget with one of our signature pig roasts. No worries if some of your guests don’t eat meat - we’ll have plenty of delicious produce sourced from our farm for them to enjoy as well.
