Where can I find the best 50th birthday party venues in Adelaide?

Adelaide has so much to offer in terms of 50th birthday party venues. There's a wide range of restaurants, bars and event spaces in each neighbourhood that can cater to whatever type of 50th birthday you're planning.

You'll find amazing 50th birthday party venues in these parts of Adelaide:

South Adelaide

South Adelaide boasts a number of popular restaurants and bars that will be perfect for any style of party. The historic Bonython Park is perfect for a large celebration or group outing, or you can head to the trendy cafes on Hutt Street for an intimate gathering.


The restaurants and bars of Forrestville are a great choice for people looking for something off the beaten track. There are some interesting spots in this neighbourhood, and they're all accessible by public transportation if you don't mind travelling to the outskirts of town.

North Adelaide

If you're planning a large 50th birthday party, look no further than North Adelaide. There are some impressive event spaces here that will accommodate up to 400 guests, and most of them have the added benefit of being close to public transportation.

Adelaide Hills

Hosting a smaller group of friends? You may want to consider the Adelaide Hills. The wineries and bed-and-breakfasts here are all great options for anyone looking for a slightly more relaxed 50th birthday experience.

West End

For anyone looking to throw a cocktail party, the West End is a solid option. The Entertainment Centre is a favourite among locals for hosting cocktail parties and other special occasions, but there are also plenty of restaurants in this neighbourhood that have outdoor space or small private rooms perfect for 50th birthday celebrations.

Adelaide CBD

For an exciting night out, head straight to Adelaide City Centre. There are tons of bars and clubs in Adelaide CBD, along with a number of restaurants that will impress and delight your guests. From high-energy nightspots to quiet restaurants, you'll find it all here.

What types of 50th birthday party venues are there in Adelaide?

After you've decided on your budget, the type of celebration you want to throw and your guest list, it's time to start looking for a venue. It's a good idea to start by making a list of all the places in Adelaide that fit your criteria, whether they're restaurants and bars, hotels or event spaces.

In Adelaide, these are some of the most popular venue types for a 50th birthday bash:

Hotel function rooms

If you're looking for a venue with a full-service function room, you can't go wrong with Adelaide's hotels. Due to their professional event staff and wide range of services, they usually have no problem accommodating a large group for a special occasion. The staff can help you with entertainment, cocktails and catering.

While picking a hotel near the CBD is convenient if you live there or plan on staying overnight, don't rule out suburban hotels altogether! Some of Adelaide's best hotel and private function rooms are in the city's leafy suburbs, where it's quieter so you won't disturb neighbours nearby.


Most restaurants have a private function room or two you can reserve for birthday parties and celebrations. As long as it fits your guest list and budget, this is one of the most convenient venues to book because they're already set up with tables and chairs, plus basic catering facilities.


Cocktail bars are a great choice for anyone looking to throw an adults-only party, and they usually have plenty of space to accommodate a large group. If you're not planning on serving a sit-down meal, this is a great option for a more low-key birthday celebration.

Waterfront venues

Adelaide's waterfront is one of the city's most popular areas for special events and celebrations. In addition to the panoramic views, many waterfront venues are close to hotels and landmarks.

The best thing about Adelaide's waterfront is that it's one of the few places where you can have an outdoor celebration even in winter. That's right: a marquee or tent won't be necessary, except for the most extreme weather conditions. Also, there are lots of restaurants and bars near the water to refuel after a fun-filled day outdoors!

Function Centre and convention centre

Adelaide has a number of function centres that offer a variety of services, from audio-visual equipment to extensive catering options. If you're looking for a one-stop shop to handle all the logistics of your 50th birthday party, this is definitely the venue type for you.

Convention centres are also a great option if you have out-of-town guests coming in for the celebrations. Many of these venues offer discount rates for parties and events, so be sure to ask about that when you're making your enquiries.

What should I know about my 50th birthday party venue before choosing it?

As you search for the perfect venue for your milestone birthday, keep these things in mind:

How many people are you inviting?

The first step in finding the perfect venue is deciding how big your gathering will be. Most restaurants, bars and event spaces have their maximum capacity posted on their websites, for each layout such as cocktail style (standing), or seated layouts such as banquet, cabaret, theatre or king table.

Where do you want your birthday parties to be?

The great thing about turning 50 is that you can have your birthday party anywhere you want! Whether you're looking for a place with an amazing view, or somewhere closer to home, there are plenty of options in Adelaide. You just have to decide where to hire the right venue in Adelaide or the surrounding suburbs.

What are you planning to do during your birthday party?

You'll also want to think about what kind of activities you'd like to include at your party. Do you just want a place where guests can hang out and have a good time? Are you planning on doing something active and entertaining like playing games or having a dance floor?

Ready to welcome your golden birthday in style? Here are 5 classy 50th birthday ideas that will make your celebration truly exceptional.

What is your budget?

You'll also need to think about how much you want to spend. If you're not worried about going overboard with your budget, it may be fun to throw an over-the-top event at Adelaide's most expensive venues! But if you're keeping things casual and just want a good location at affordable prices, there are plenty of options for that as well.

What do you need from the venue?

Do you need any special equipment, like tables, chairs or decorations? Are there any specific locations that would be perfect for photos? Will any guests have trouble walking around the space due to physical limitations? Are drinks and food included in the package or is that something you're expected to organise separately?

What will you serve?

And finally, you'll need to think about what kind of food and drink you want to serve at your party. If you're planning on having a sit-down meal, you should check with the venue to see if they have any preferred caterers that they work with. For more casual gatherings, finger food and buffet-style meals are always good options. And of course, don't forget the birthday cake!

Now that you know all of this, you're ready to start searching for the perfect venue for your 50th birthday party. So get out there and start exploring all the amazing options that Adelaide has to offer!
