INCREDIBLE is the only word that can describe this venue. We found it online and it was the only venue we looked at. We booked it on the spot! The team at BABC is wonderful. They make you feel like your wedding is TRULY important to them.. Something most venues (like hotels) don't do. Our wedding was literally perfect... Not one thing went wrong and that is in part thanks to the team at BABC! They even "assigned" me a staffer to be by my side all day to ensure I had everything I needed... Meaning my champagne glass was never empty, she held my bouquet when I needed her to, she fixed the bustle on my dress after she noticed it was falling.. I felt like a celebrity! The gorgeous setting, venue, and view are only trumped by BABC's stellar service. All of our friends and family were so impressed. I can't say enough wonderful things about BABC!!

Everything was perfect. It rained and we had to move inside at the last minute and they made it even more beautiful.

unfortunately, this rating system doesnt ask for a rating on beauty and elegance. if it did, the bel air bay club would get a 10. if youre looking for a gorgeous, undeniably beautiful space to have your event, the bel air bay club is the place to do it. but if youre too picky and need extra flexibility, you might run into a few bumps here. the first thing that caught me off guard was the lack of "perks" you get. as the bride/groom on your wedding day, you might expect such an expensive venue to provide some sort of nosh or beverages. nope you get nothing for free here, and youre not allowed to bring in your own food and drinks either. also, on the subject of food, they dont have a "vendors meal plan" so youre paying full (and high) prices for all your vendors to eat. normally thats not too big of a deal, but when you have your photographers, videographers, florists, etc. and on top of that you have a 12 person band, well, it adds up to say the least. i had to turn purple before they agreed to let me feed my vendors a subway meal, but they had to eat outside (and of course, no chairs or tables were provided so i felt bad, but did save a lot of money). MAKE SURE you meet with the wedding coordinator ahead of time and EMPHASIZE how important certain things are for the day-of. my GRANDMOTHER was supposed to walk down the aisle, and the wedding coordinator didnt see it on the list that was very clear and was provided to her ahead of time, so grandma didnt walk down. a HUGE deal and extremely upsetting. also, i had a wedding sign in book that she missed so it didnt get put out and i have a wedding sign in book with no well wishes :( finally, a box of over 100 balloons "got lost" which is BS because it took me forever to figure out the plans for those.

on a GOOD note: ive never had wedding food that tasted as incredibly amazing as the food here. the food was simply top quality, better than restaurant food (minus some trouble with dessert)

The location of the Upper Club speaks for itself - it's absolutely breathtaking. But we can't say enough about the staff and service we received throughout the entire wedding process through the end of the wedding reception. We first visited the club on a whim, on a day when it was foggy and raining and the ocean wasn't even visible. The high quality of service we received on our initial walk through was so amazing that we signed the contract the next day. The food far surpassed anything we ever expected, and their staff is so flexible that you can truly transform the space into anything that you want it to be. All in all, it was the perfect venue for our wedding, and we couldn't be happier.

I chose the Bel Air Bay Club as my venue for my wedding on 4/7/12. I could not be happier!!!! First of all, this place is GORGEOUS! Both the inside and outside of this venue are stunning. They do such a great job of keeping up with the maintenance of the lawn, the flowers, the water fountain, etc. etc. Secondly, the staff and service is unsurpassed! I had the pleasure of working with Carrie and Lisa and both ladies were simply amazing. They worked with me every step of the way. Ron and Chino made the wedding day go off without a hitch! My guests kept complimenting me on the delicious food and exceptional service throughout the night. I could not have chosen a more amazing place to be married. Thank you Bel Air Bay Club for making my wedding dreams come true!!!

Great view for ceremony. It rained the morning of our wedding, but the club was easily able to move the ceremony indoors and no one knew any different. Food was fantastic.

The Bel Air Bay Club was beautiful. However they were going through some changes in the staff and that made the responsiveness very arbitrary. They also were going to charge considerably more for moving the wedding inside (there was a sudden possibility of rain on the day of the wedding) which I thought was ridiculous. Other than that the site and the food were amazing. Everyone commented on how great it was.

Wow, this place is beautiful. What more could you ask for then to get married on a grassy bluff overlooking the ocean and party indoors. Pluss... the staff was so on top of things! Every time i got up and came back to my table my napkin would be refolded. The food was great and they took care of it all. Only bad things... no tasting, midnight music cerfew and you have to pay per drink but besides that great great great place to get married!
