What types of 18th birthday party venues are available in Adelaide?

Planning a birthday party may seem like a daunting task, but not to worry! Here is an ultimate guide to planning a birthday party of the century.

When looking for a birthday venue, you'll find that each venue type in Adelaide will have its advantages and disadvantages but more than anything, each venue will require different levels of planning to ensure the night goes smoothly. Here are some of the most popular types of 18th birthday party venues in Adelaide:


Restaurants are always a popular type of venue for 18th birthday parties. There are many different types of restaurants in Adelaide, which can make it difficult to choose one to have your party at. There are fun chain-style restaurants with games such as pool, table tennis and beer pong; there are great family-friendly pizza places with private function rooms for hire; there are also fine-dining restaurants and establishments with stunning views across the city skyline.

Most restaurants offer catering for parties where you can pay a per-person cost for a minimum number of people. Some offer BYO drinks, however, you'll need to speak to the venue to understand their beverage policy.

Bars and pubs

Bars and pubs are another very popular type of venue for an 18th birthday party in Adelaide. If you're after a cool-looking venue, check out the many rooftop bars and underground speakeasies in the city centre. If you're a sports fanatic, pubs are your best bet. Look for bars or pubs with extensive drinks lists and a good range of pub grub to choose from.

Private Dining Room

If you want to celebrate your 18th birthday in style, then a private dining room is the way to go. These are usually found in hotels or restaurants and can accommodate large groups. Private dining rooms will often have their own dedicated waitstaff and menu, so you'll need to book in advance and pay a per-person cost.

Hotel function room

Hotels are another great option for an 18th birthday party. Many hotels have function rooms that can be hired out for the night, or you can book a suite and make use of the hotel's amenities. If you're looking to celebrate in style, then a hotel is definitely the way to go. Also, this is an ideal venue for your cocktail party as many hotels will have their own bars.

Function Centre

Function centres are a great option for large groups. They usually have their own catering and drink options, so you'll need to book in advance and pay a per-person cost. However, they're perfect if you want to have a private party away from the prying eyes of the public

Waterfront venues

Waterfront venues are immensely popular in Adelaide as everyone loves to be by the water. The advantage of having a waterfront 18th birthday party is that you can take photos with the stunning Adelaide skyline and even have a few boats or jet skis chase your guests around!

Luxury events spaces

A luxury events space is probably one of the most extravagant types of 18th birthday party venues in Adelaide. Usually, they will come with perks such as a private chef to cook all your food for you, bottled water and champagne on arrival and your own host/hostess who will make sure everything runs smoothly. Rooms will be set out with trays of canapés and your guests can walk around the venue taking photos against stunning backdrops.

Rural or country getaways

Usually only available on special occasions such as birthdays or Christmas, having a rural dinner will give you and your guests a fresh new experience. You'll find that each rural restaurant has its own unique charm.

Some may overlook vineyards or farms; others may have lakeside views; many will have beautiful gardens surrounding them. If drinking and dancing all night isn't your thing and you want to celebrate with something other than a traditional restaurant dinner, this may be the answer.

Nontraditional venues

There are many different nontraditional 18th birthday party venues in Adelaide that may be suitable for your party depending on what you want it to be like. Here are some ideas:

  • An escape room is a fun alternative to having an 18th birthday party at home or the usual pub/restaurant type locations. You can either book a private room or go with some friends and do the games as a group activity.
  • A museum would be great if anyone was interested in history or art! There are many different museums around Adelaide that you can have your party at.
  • Arts spaces like theatres, studios and galleries are also always fun places for an 18th birthday party, especially if your friends enjoy acting, drama, or visual arts! It's also quite nice to have something different from a traditional restaurant/bar setting.
  • Competitive activities like go-karts, mini-golf and laser tag. A little friendly competition is always welcome and makes any event fun and memorable. Many activity centres in Adelaide offer birthday party packages that may include food, drinks and venue styling.
