What should I consider before hiring Brisbane birthday venues? 

Of all the decisions you make during the event planning process, your choice of venue hire will have the biggest impact. Every other decision you make after this one will be at least partly affected by your venue choice. Sounds scary? It doesn’t have to be. Here are some questions to ask as you look for birthday party venues in Brisbane:

What services and amenities does the venue have?

What do you need and can the venue provide it? Does the venue have audio-visual equipment? Do they provide tables, chairs, linen and tableware? If they do, you’ll save heaps of dollars on rentals. If you’re bringing in food vendors, does the venue have kitchen facilities for food prep? Is there an added fee for use of those facilities? Will you have to bring in your own setup/clean crew or does the venue provide this service? 

How accessible is the venue?

How easily accessible is the venue and its amenities for wheelchair users and people with visual impairment or other disabilities? Make sure you know what your guests’ needs are and inquire about access to the building and its amenities before you book a venue.

What’s the parking situation?

Parking can be a deciding factor for some of your guests. Ask if your venue has its own parking space, valet service or an arrangement with a nearby parking garage or lot. Alternatively, you could look into party venues in Brisbane that are close to public transport.

Step off the beaten track — One of the best ways to mark a milestone birthday is to try something new. Instead of celebrating at the usual restaurant, bar or function venue, how about giving one of the many unique birthday party venues in Brisbane a spin? Converted churches, spas, microbreweries and artist’s studios are great for small groups.

Tips for Planning a Birthday Party in Brisbane

You don't have to be an event planner or a professional caterer to throw a birthday party. Birthday parties can be planned in just a few hours and with minimal effort, even if you're on the tightest of schedules! Here are some helpful tips that will make organising the perfect Brisbane Birthday Party easy as pie:

Book in advance

When you're organising the venue, book as early in advance as possible so that you don't miss out on the best venues with the right date and time available. If there are any children invited make sure it's suitable for their age group - if not then plan an adult-only event! Make sure everyone knows they need to be on time by stating this clearly at least two weeks beforehand (or more depending on how close people live).

Create a checklist to compare venues

Once you have a few venues in mind, create a checklist to compare them against. This will help with decision making and identifying which is the best venue for your needs - whether it's location or number of people invited etc.


Don't forget that aside from the hire fees there are other costs associated with hiring any event space so set yourself an appropriate budget and don't go over! Birthday party packages usually include tablecloths, decorations (if needed) as well as catering if desired - though this can be organised separately too if preferred.
