Our Inspiration


Bedford, our adorable pug and his co-hort Madeline have been the official greeters of the ReCreations Home store for the past 17 years. Bedford was the inspiration for the name of our new event venue. He’s hospitable, always ready for fun, and loves meeting new people. He wants to help make your special moments memorable.    


Many of you remember dining at Darryl’s restaurant in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. This space hosted  birthday celebrations, engagements, anniversaries, and special occasions.  Houlihan’s made a decision to sell this space in 2002. 


A decision was made in 2017 to consolidate to one ReCreations location in Melrose. The question became “what do we do with this beautiful building? Many came to us with the idea of going back to our roots of a beautiful place for special occasions. The Bedford Event Venue was christened in 2018. Our goal was to keep our ambiance while enhancing the building’s amenities to create a beautiful space for your special event.  

We look forward to serving you, your family and friends for many years.
