Let's have a look at what kind of engagement party venues you can find in Brisbane specifically. First and foremost, the city is home to an incredibly diverse variety of waterfront venues. These excel at creating the perfect atmosphere for love to flourish. Our favourite is probably The Landing at Dockside, along with its sparkling lights and views of the Brisbane River. Many of these include features such as walls of glass to keep your guests in comfort while awarding uninterrupted views as the sun sets, the shadows stretch and the city lights begin to twinkle in the distance.
In a similar vein, rooftop venues are quite popular for smaller engagement parties with a feeling of exclusivity. The area around Victoria Bridge is filled with these to take advantage of the waterfront views, particularly around George Street. You could also go for something that is more of a blank canvas, with a range of galleries, gardens, and warehouse spaces for hire (Alice Street and Gardens Point Road near the botanic gardens make good starting points). These can be converted and customised to suit your needs. Don’t worry about doing all of the work yourself, as the vast majority of these places are used to working with you to ensure you get the perfect evening.
So now that you know what you’ll be able to find, how about having a look at where you can find the most popular options for engagement parties in Brisbane? In what is likely not a surprise to those in the know, a great place to start looking is Fortitude Valley and its surroundings. Packed with everything from dive bars to VIP lounges to vibrant dance clubs, Fortitude Valley has engagement party venue options for everyone. Crossing Stony Bridge to Kangaroo Point is also an excellent choice with stunning views. If an outdoor party is more your style, head north towards Victoria Park.
One other thing to consider when booking an engagement party venue in Brisbane is making a BYO booking rather than going with the standard approach. A “bring your own” option might sound like a bit of a hassle, but it can often be an excellent solution for something particularly peculiar. Of course, it can often save you a great deal of money, too – if done right! So, how do BYO engagement venues generally work? Typically, you pay a flat hire fee for the venue itself and then largely only have to deal with some incidental expenses, such as corkage fees. If this sort of arrangement sounds of interest, be sure to check with the venue in advance that they can handle the goods you bring in. Nothing worse than finding out that the fridge can’t fit it all! Last but not least, ask what fees you will incur for going BYO. That’s pretty much it – cheers!
Fortitude Valley is known for its lively nightlife and eclectic mix of bars and restaurants with elegant decor and some unique touch. If you want to throw an engagement party that's sure to impress, this is the place for you! On the other hand, New Farm is the perfect choice if you’d like an engagement party with a relaxed vibe - its vibrant nightlife scene and range of private dining options, will not disappoint you. These areas are also great for one common reason - they are easily accessible via public transport or car.
Prices for restaurants start from $30 to several hundred dollars per person. Some of them charge per minimum spend with prices from $300 to $2500. As Brisbane has beautiful weather all year round, there are many outdoor venues ready to host engagement parties from $250 to $1500 per evening. For indoor spaces, expect prices around $100 per hour, or $1500 per session. (All data from Tagvenue.com)
Ideally, you should book your desired space around 3 months in advance. Securing this early gives you the advantage of a much lower price and having enough time to nail all the party details. Also, you’ll have much more exciting venues available on your preferred date, which means that you’ll have higher chances of booking a venue that caters to all of your personal requirements.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
