Built to fend off invading pirates, an amazing historic military installation stood on the property for 200 years. It was partially demolished in 1897, and a few remaining walls, walkways and a cannon remain. The property is now home to Old Fort Bay Club, a private social club that embraces the historic character of the former military fort. It is a one-of-a-kind venue nestled between a pristine beach and deep bay lagoon lending to a dramatic picturesque backdrop for your special day.
The Old Fort Bay Club property offers several locations for your wedding vows including a beach, a garden lawn, a treetop terrace, a garden terrace, and the paradise pavilion. Parties of up to 650 can be accommodated. Weddings in the Bahamas is familiar with the property and can help you chose the right setting based on your wedding day vision.

Wedding photographers (and guests) love Old Fort Bay Club because of its visual biodiversity. There are many natural elements on the property that provide amazing settings and backdrops including colorful staircases with wrought iron gates, mature palm trees, lush tropical vegetation and climbing flowering vines, white-washed beaches, ornamental tile entries, vintage archways, eclectic décor, garden lighting, and an expansive open greenspace with a tranquil labyrinth.
Because it’s a private club, this venue is a popular choice for couples who want to enjoy a secluded ceremony experience. Limited access means it is very peaceful and you don’t have to worry about crowds or intrusive noises from the public.

While Old Fort Bay Club does not have individual guest accommodations (hotel), there are staging rooms for the bridal party to get ready. The club is about a 45-minute drive from Atlantis, 40-minute drive from the cruise port, and 25-minute drive from Baha Mar. Weddings in the Bahamas will organize transportation for your entire party.
