How to pick the perfect venue for a 30th birthday party in Melbourne?

If you’ve checked out the listings above, you know that you’ve got a lot of options for a 30th birthday party in Melbourne. Choosing the right venue is mostly a matter of preference but there are some things to consider before you commit to a booking:

  • Know your guests – Are you inviting a pack of gourmands and need to find a unique place for dinner and drinks? Looking to dance the night away with some gal pals? Maybe you just want a quiet pub where you can share a toast with your mates? Melbourne’s 30th birthday party venues can do almost anything, but none of them can do everything, so pick an area to focus on. It will be much easier for you to find the perfect party space once you know what you want. So make sure to decide how you’d like your celebration early on in the planning process. 
  • Reservations and seating arrangements – A major issue to settle in advance is the right seating arrangement for whatever activities you have planned? Do you want standing tables for a bit of mingling? Want to sit around a huge round table and pretend you’re King Arthur? It's your birthday, so fair enough, but plan in advance! Use Tagvenue’s filters to narrow down what you’re looking for and check the listings to see what our venues have for you.
  • Have a clear view on how much you can pay - Whether you want to splurge to have the best birthday party of your life, or wish to keep the costs low, you need to set a budget! When you know what you can afford, you can find a venue that will fit your budget. This will save you plenty of time which you can allocate to other party-planning details. 
  • Location - Don’t underestimate the power of your chosen location! You need to pick a place that is vibrant and offers plenty of entertainment options to get your crowd in the right party vibe. Also, be sure to choose an accessible venue. Ideally, it should offer decent access to public transportation and parking so your guests won’t have any trouble travelling to the venue. 
  • A big bash or something more private? - Draw up a guestlist to determine how much room you will need for your party. You can also rule out spaces that won’t fit and pick one that will be perfect both for your crowd and your wallet.   

How to organise a great 30th birthday party in Melbourne?

Paralysed with indecision? We’ve been there too, so here are a few suggestions for organising an awesome 30th birthday party in Melbourne:

  • Gourmet on a budget – If you’re looking for a memorable meal that won’t break the bank, you can start your search around Little Collins Street and start your search from there, as there are a few places nearby that fit the bill for a fantastic 30th birthday meal. You can also consider having a potluck party and ask everyone to bring their signature dish ensuring that you’ll have plenty of luscious food on a budget. However, before booking a particular venue, check with the manager if the space allows outside catering.
  • Something different – Maybe just dinner isn’t quite enough for you and your group of friends? Have a look around Chapel Street for a few themed restaurants that not only offer a variety of tasty dishes but offer interesting after-dinner activities, such as private karaoke booths (you know someone will want to sing Happy Birthday, so you might as well give them a microphone). And how about booking a space in a gallery or a museum? They also host private events, and often offer quite low fees! 
  • Low key – For a quieter 30th birthday party, start looking around Windsor for a selection of venues that come with plenty of drinks, a cosy atmosphere and a laid-back ambience, such as private dining rooms. These great event spaces are a part of the restaurant, but they offer seclusion and privacy, making it the perfect place to host private and intimate celebrations.

Can you recommend some great party venues for my 30th birthday in Melbourne?

Sure! The Clarendon Skybar offers a charming outdoor rooftop space that can be paired with a fantastic menu full of delicious cocktails and finger foods. It’s perfect for those chic, summer birthday celebrations. Morocco Lounge also has a spectacular setting that will surely leave your guests in awe. If you want to celebrate in unique surroundings, this one will not disappoint!

How early should I book a venue for my 30th birthday party?

We recommend 12 to 6 weeks in advance as the optimal time for when you should pick and book a venue. Getting this out of the way early will give you a chance to thoroughly check the offers, contact managers and choose a space that suits you best. If you wait for too long, there’s a chance that you won’t have a variety of venues to choose from, as most of them may be already taken on your preferred date.

Can I decorate the venue on my own?

This will depend on the venue’s own policy. Most will allow some delicate decorations like candles or balloons. But if you’d like to build your ideal setting from scratch and add banners, props, glitter, confetti, etc. make sure to discuss it with the venue manager before booking the space.

Louise Miller
Booked Beer Garden at Temperance Hotel
I recently had my 30th at Temperance Hotel and it was a real hoot!! The private lounge was such a vibe!! I organised decorations and balloons to be taken to Temperance on the day of and all staff were very accomodating. Bea was amazing at helping me organise the event and the rest of the staff at Temperance were absolutely amazing. They looked after everyone, and made sure the night went smoothly. The food was delicious and the staff at the bar/handing around the night were absolutely amazing. I highly recommend having your function at Temperance and I would definitely do it all over again!! All of my friends and family had the best time and spoke very highly of the venue and staff. I can't wait to have another party at Temperance in the future!
