About the Bradford Club

A Gentleman’s Club dating from the mid 19th Century. The Bradford Club now admits both ladies and gentlemen.

The Club building is a fine example of Victorian architecture set in the conservation area of the city. It has been completely modernised and refurbished to a high standard, while retaining its essential period character. Parts of the Club date from 1855 with the remaining part built in 1866 to the design of Lockwood and Mawson.

Membership totals 200. The Club’s prime purpose is to serve as a meeting place for lunch and to afford facilities for meetings and functions.

A number of organisations make the Club their meeting place; the Rotary Club of Bradford Blaize, U3A, Bradford Historical and Antiquarian Society, the Textile Society, the Accountants Association and the Insurance Institute.

Outside the normal published hours of opening, members are also welcome to use the Club on those evenings when a private function is booked. This may be one or two day’s a week in the summer and almost every evening during the winter. A shortage of good restaurants in the city makes the Bradford Club a convenient and popular venue for company and institutional entertaining and family special celebrations.

There is a busy calendar of member’s functions including informal lunches, wine tastings, cocktail parties and formal dinners.

The Club occupies freehold premises in Piece Hall Yard which runs between Kirkgate and Hustlergate in the heart of the commercial centre of Bradford.
