What type of Adelaide venue is best for my 21st birthday party?

The venue you choose will depend on the number of people attending, budget and location. If you have a smaller number of guests, then consider having an intimate gathering at a restaurant or bar. If you're looking to invite more people, consider hiring a hotel function centre or an outdoor event space. Here’s our guide to 21st birthday party venues available in Adelaide and across South Australia:


If you're planning to keep the evening casual and close by, restaurants are always great venue options. There are tons of great restaurant venues all across Adelaide, particularly in the CBD. Restaurant venue hire is a huge favourite for those wanting a luxurious venue with class and elegance.

Cocktail bars

If you want something a little more upmarket, then cocktail bars are perfect. Cocktail bar venue hire is always popular for 21st parties as drinks and finger food can be ordered throughout the night.

Function spaces

Adelaide has plenty of event space options for when you're hosting corporate functions or social events with large guest lists. Event venue hire is most commonly used to host conferences, fashion shows and cocktail parties but is also well suited to private events like birthdays and engagement parties. Check out Cafe Outside the Square, a venue space with an outdoor area that would be perfect for when the weather's warm.

Cafes and restaurants

If you're looking to avoid large venue hire costs and want something more casual, then cafes and restaurants are great venue options as well.

Hotel function rooms

Hotel venue hire is for when you're looking to host your special event in a more elegant venue. Hotels are always suitable for birthday celebrations and many offer great packages, perfect for large groups or if you need set catering included.

Blank canvas venues

Blank canvas venues such as converted warehouses and art galleries are some of the most popular venues for social functions in Adelaide. Blank canvas venue hire gives you the freedom to decide on what type of theme you want and transform the space into your ideal setting.

How can I host a 21st birthday on a budget?

You can have a memorable (in a good way!) birthday bash without breaking the bank. Here are some tips for throwing a 21st birthday celebration on a budget:

Plan ahead and have a clear budget

List all the costs associated with your parties, such as venue hire, catering, music and venue decoration. Write down how much you are willing to spend on each thing. Then stick to that figure as closely as possible.

Review catering options

If the venue doesn't offer catering, try making your own food — or ask friends who love to cook to help you out. That way, you can get exactly what you want and will be able to save money.

Talk to venue staff

Go ahead and ask the venue manager (or venue owner) if he/she has any suggestions for how to cut costs. Asking for recommendations is a good way to get ideas without being too pushy. If there's a venue that you really want to use and it looks like it will be beyond your budget, it may be worth booking early to get a better deal. And remember, if you're getting venue decorations (wall décor and/or tablecloths) many venues offer decorations in their venue rental packages already. You may not need to get more from an extra source.
