18th Birthday Party Venues Hire Guide

Choosing the right venue for an 18th birthday party really depends on the type of bash you’re looking to host, but there are a few universal things that you should consider while searching:

  • Venue speciality – An 18th birthday party gives you a lot of options for the type of venue you can book. Are you looking to hire a hall and put in decorations? Maybe a trendy bar with a private room? Something more unique? Check the vibe of each place to see it matches with the type of 18th birthday party you’re trying to throw!
  • Venue negotiation – Some venues in Melbourne are hesitant to hire their business out for 18th birthday parties as getting rowdy is fairly traditional. Keep this in mind if you’re having a hard time booking a venue.
  • Seating arrangement and decorations – Are you going to need chairs and tables? Streamers and balloons? Many venues are happy to work with you to customize their space for your event, but it’s always best to check in advance and find a venue that is already close to the type of atmosphere you’re looking for. Use Tagvenue’s filters to find the best arrangement for your party.

The type of venue you need will cause the hiring price to vary, but here are a few baselines for you to consider:

  • Many 18th birthday party venues in Melbourne operate on a minimum spend model, meaning you pay nothing to rent the space but agree to spend a set amount on food/drinks/etc. The cost may vary depending on the room size and location, with prices going from $500 all the way to $8,000!
  • Other places have a flat hire fee with everything else added to the bill as per usual, and you can typically expect to spend in the neighbourhood of $500 for the hire fee.
  • Finally, the per person spend model for 18th birthday party venues in Melbourne is quite popular with many of the best locations charging between $20-70 per guest.
