Party Venues Hire Guide

A cocktail party on a rooftop with stunning sights of Melbourne, a totally laid-back pool party, a disco night or something completely quirky and different – no matter what you’re planning, our collection of top party venues in Melbourne is sure to come in handy. And the icing on the cake? We’ve prepared our very own handy guide on how to plan a private party in Melbourne just for you!

Do you know for sure that you want to throw a party, but you’re stuck on deciding on the theme? Is a regular cocktail party or corporate gathering a bit too boring for you? Melbourne might be one of the coolest places to take your event to, so you surely don’t want to do something ordinary! Start by taking a look at our list of fun and unique party ideas, suitable for kids and adults, groups of friends and colleagues, there really is something for everyone.

  • Arts and crafts party. If you want to have something to remind you of the great time you’ve had aside from group pictures and hazy memories, how about a party that lets you leave with a creation of your own? Consider hiring a venue in which you can all immerse yourselves in creative activities like painting, pottery making, or even woodworking! Art studios in Melbourne are one type of venue perfect for such events!
  • Rave. Fancy dancing the night away with intense lights and electronic tunes providing an unforgettable atmosphere? A rave party is just for you! Whether it’s spending your birthday surrounded by neons and loud music or letting loose with your colleagues from work, we think raving is a great choice as long as you are open-minded! Looking into nightclubs available for hire in Melbourne is a great place to start.
  • Game night. Let’s be real here - there’s no better guarantee of a good time than playing some fun games! We can think of an array of events that could benefit from some games, from kids birthday parties to bucks nights and team-bonding events. And you can also organise a game party just for the sake of it, too! Venues that provide projectors or TVs that allow you to play video games or spaces with comfortable tables and sofas for board or card games are the obvious options. For a more immersive adventure, check out The Escape Hunt Experience Melbourne or consider VR Plus, if you prefer the virtual kind!

Some other great concepts could be a garden party, a tasting party with foods from all around the world, a themed night based on your group’s interests, a costume party, or a pet party that everyone brings their dog to! The possibilities are endless and with the selection of party venues in Melbourne available on Tagvenue you’re sure to find a space that will fit your unique ideas.

We are confident that your party will be one of its kind, but the creative process shouldn’t steer you away from the more down-to-earth aspects of organising an event either. There’s a lot of things to remember when choosing a party venue and we’re here to help you wrap your head around it. 

  • Start from the guest list – Writing down a list of the guests should be a priority. It’s the best thing you can do to make party planning a lot smoother and avoid spending any more money than necessary. Once you know how many people you’re expecting and who’s going to attend, it’s much easier to decide on the style and the size of the venue you’re going to need. Aside from size, make sure to check if anyone attending has any special needs that need to be catered to, such as dietary restrictions or disabilities.
  • Have a few different dates in mind – It’s always better to come up with several different options. This gives you more alternatives and significantly increases the chances of booking a party venue that strikes all the right chords! If your budget is rather tight and you’re on the lookout for cheap venue options in Melbourne, it’s good to consider off-peak dates if possible. The hire rates are usually much lower on weekdays!
  • Make sure the venue has all you need – Chairs, tablecloths, audio equipment…what else? Create a list of all the items you’re going to need on the day and check with the venue manager about what they have on-site and what you’ll need to bring yourself. Many of the popular facilities, such as projectors, storage space, or music speakers are available to mark as filters on our website! Using these search features makes your search much easier.
  • Remember about the location - And it’s not only about which district of the city the venue is situated in! Important factors are parking space and public transport stations near the place. Want a party room with a view? Consider a rooftop venue in the city centre or one that overlooks the Bay. Checking out the map on the venue page is best for finding out what the neighbourhood has to offer, and the photos will tell you if the immediate surroundings are pretty enough for your liking!

Now that you’ve gone through all our tips and ideas, we’re sure you’re ready to begin your venue booking journey. Start browsing the best party venues in Melbourne now!
