What makes a great party venue?

Before anything else, one may ask what makes a venue party great?

When it comes to party venues, there are a number of factors that you may want to keep in mind to find the perfect place for you.

Venue Size

Firstly, you might want to look at the kind of event space available- whether it is an indoor or outdoor venue. What kind of group is going to attend your party? If it is a large group, then you might need something with a lot of space. If it is a smaller group, then you can consider a smaller venue. A party venue should be able to accommodate the number of guests that you want to invite and take note that in some cases, the total capacity of your event will also depend on whether or not the place is licensed for alcohol consumption as well. 

Venue Type

Venues can be classified in a number of ways- whether it is an indoor or outdoor venue, whether it has a dance floor, the amount of seating available etc. Also do not forget about the theme you wish to have for your birthday party - as some venues are more suitable than others.

You might also want to take into consideration using an existing venue that has a theme that you already like- if your ideal birthday party is one with a gold and purple theme, then you can use this as the basis of how your party will look. Check out Top 5 Birthday Themes and How to Make Them Happen for more inspiration.


Lastly, set your budget. Find out how much each venue costs by inquiring ahead of time- and be sure to make comparisons. Do not forget to factor in things like food and drinks - as you will want to make sure that the food is high quality! You also want to consider the limit of your budget and cater to that- after all, it is your party!
