Clubs and pubs

Bars are the most popular choices for 40th birthday party venues. A bar gives you a great setting to have fun whilst enjoying beer, wine or cocktails. Most bars can easily accommodate a big group of people though you can also find space to celebrate with a few friends.

It's also fairly easy to find a venue that allows dancing or karaoke if that's your thing. If you don't want to belt out the latest tunes and just want to listen to music, you'll find plenty of places in the city where the street comes alive with live bands and nightclub beats.


Dining establishments are good choices for a party venue. They have all the regular facilities like dance floors, live bands and karaoke. Some restaurants are even known for hosting parties with themes, decorations and special menus designed to make your 40th birthday a memorable one.

If you just want to celebrate with a good dinner, you can reserve a table or function room in the venue and enjoy a banquet. You can always go out and grab a few drinks in Brisbane's many nightspots afterwards.


Most hotels have function rooms, ballrooms, or event spaces that can be booked for corporate gatherings and celebrations. They're also perfect 40th birthday party venues.

Booking a hotel venue is easy, though you have to do so in advance. You're probably not the only one thinking that a function room in a classy hotel is the best exclusive venue for your 40th birthday party. Check out the hotels in the area and see which one has an event space that can provide the most value for your money.

The most important thing is to choose a venue that has the right atmosphere for your party. You should also check with management regarding their menu options if you want them to take care of the banquet.

Private Dining Room

This is a great idea for more intimate gatherings. It's perfect if you want to have a sit-down dinner with close friends and family.

You can find private dining rooms in most restaurants, some even with private bar hires. They're usually located at the back or on a higher floor away from the main dining area. This gives you and your guests more privacy to celebrate your birthday.

Check with the restaurant in advance to see if they have a private dining room available for your private parties. You should also ask about their menu options and pricing.

Outdoor event spaces

Outdoor event spaces are perfect for those who want to celebrate their birthday under the stars or even with views of the Brisbane River. There are plenty of outdoor venues in Brisbane that can accommodate a big group. You just have to book early to make sure you get the best spot.

Apartments or condominiums

There are heaps of these available for private hire — perfect for hosting an intimate gathering of friends and family. Apartments and condos have the advantage of having private parking places, a clubhouse or garden and maybe even a swimming pool. They usually also have a fully equipped kitchen and dining area.

What should I consider when choosing the best birthday party place in Brisbane?

When you're choosing from the many 40th birthday party venues in Brisbane, you need to consider a number of factors.


The main consideration is the location of the venue. You need to make sure that it's accessible and close by so that your guests don't have a hard time getting there. Nearby transport should also be considered — are there buses going past the area? Is public transport available?


The cost of the venue will depend on a number of things, such as location, capacity and amenities. You should ask for quotes from different venues before making a choice.

Venue capacity

Check the capacity to ensure that your guests can fit into the venue comfortably. Be sure to check the capacity for each function space and decide which layout is best, eg. cocktail style venue (standing) or something seated.


Some venues offer in-house entertainment while others don't. You need to decide if you want live music or a DJ, or if you're going to have your own live entertainment.


If you're planning a themed party, check if the venue has a theme of its own. Some venues have restrictions on the type of decorations and music that can be played during a party.
