University Literary Club



The UniLit, originally established in 1889 as the Literary and Philosophic Club, is a magnificent Georgian building situated in Berkeley Square, at the top of fashionable Park Street in the heart of Bristol.

The function rooms are situated on the first and second floors, reached by a stunning Georgian staircase, top-lit by a magnificent glass cupola.

Wedding ceremonies and receptions, business lunches, meetings, conferences and private parties can all be catered for in the elegant surroundings of these rooms, designed in the late eighteenth century by Thomas Paty, one of Bristol's prominent Architect-Masons.

Conscious of the historic qualities of its premises, the UniLit extends a warm welcome and professional service to all members, guests and visitors.
