Hotel function rooms

A function room is a space that can be rented out for a specific event, such as a business meeting or party. These rooms are often found in hotels or a convention centre, although they may also be available at other venues. The purpose of the function room is to provide an area where events can take place with some degree of privacy from the public areas.

Function centre

When it comes to venues for a 40th birthday party or private function, one of the most popular options is a function centre. These spaces are usually rented out by event organisers so they can host events and private parties. They're often found in hotel grounds, but some function centres exist outside of hotels too! The best thing about them is that they come with all the necessary equipment you need to throw an amazing party: from tables and chairs to catering facilities and more. If you want your 40th birthday celebration in Adelaide to be flawless, then booking a function centre should be at the top of your list!

Cocktail bars

Cocktail bars are a great 40th birthday party venue choice because not only can you get some delicious and unique cocktails, but the decor is very trendy and fun! If your style leans more towards chic or classy rather than crazy or wild, then definitely check out cocktail bars for your Adelaide birthday venues.

Usually, cocktail bars offer a bar tab option, which is a list of the drinks that guests had when they were at a bar. The tabs can be paid individually, though it's more common to collect money from everyone and then have one person or the bartender pay for both.

Outdoor spaces

If you want a little breathing space and some greenery to go with your Adelaide 40th birthday party, then consider booking an outdoor space! Decked out in fairy lights or covered by twinkling stars, these venues are perfect for birthdays. Whether you celebrate at a park, by the water or up at a rooftop bar, there's nothing like the feeling of being outdoors as you celebrate with your favourite people. You can also opt for a destination beachfront event venue where you can have your own private party by the water!
