21st Birthday Venues Hire Guide

What kind of venues are popular for 21st birthday in Melbourne? Well, it’s got to be bars and restaurants for this. We all love a good drink for a 21st birthday party. It’s long been a tradition in society that 21 was the beginning of adulthood and this is what the key symbolises. How do people in Melbourne usually celebrate it, though? Thanks to the city having some simply awesome cocktail bars, pubs and eateries, you can hire a private space and party the night away. Another popular idea is to hire a boat for a cruise with some really dreamy views.

You’re going to want to give your friends and family a night to remember. When thinking of your special bash, keep the following things in mind:

  • Having your party in a place that’s easy to get to, has good parking or is serviced by regular public transport is such a key element. You don’t want your guests to be frustrated from the very beginning.
  • A unique view will really wow your guests. How about booking a rooftop terrace at a restaurant? Imagine your loved ones as they wine and dine while the city lights twinkle in the background. Or maybe even hire a full boat cruising up and down the Yarra River? Remember that you’re celebrating a milestone, so why not make it truly special?
  • If it’s a 21st birthday party, there’s still a chance some of your guests are underage. If that’s true in your case, make sure the venue of your choice is OK with this.
  • Last but not least, don’t forget about the price. There are so many bars, cafes and restaurants with areas for hire now that the prices are incredibly competitive and you can get great deals all over the city. Don’t be shy over haggling, too. The venue managers are used to this – and it’s your party, after all!

The success of every party depends on knowing what will please your guests. If you’re going to have loads of aunts, uncles and older relatives then probably booking a group bungee jump isn’t going to go down too well. We’ve got some 21st birthday party ideas for Melbourne to inspire you:

  • If some people are coming in from out of town then maybe you’ll want to spend some time showing them around Melbourne and doing something touristy. The best option for a party later in the day would be to hire a private function room so everyone can celebrate together. Areas with the biggest choice of function rooms for birthdays include South Yarra, Richmond and Collingwood.
  • You could split the day in another way, too. Do something adventurous with your close friends during the day and then enjoy a more relaxed vibe on a rooftop bar with a view later in the evening.
  • How about learning something new? Many Melbourne venues offer private workshops. You can hire the entire space and engage in a new activity with your friends. Who knows, maybe it’s gonna become your new passion?
