Party Venues Hire Guide

Sydney, Australia’s largest city, is a hub for celebrations of all types and sizes. But it's no secret that organising a party may be a challenge. It takes a lot of preparation, and it's easy to feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of things that need to get done if you want to make sure everything is perfect come the big day The list of tasks seems endless, so to help out we’ve listed some of them for you:

Write down the complete guest list – Start from figuring out the number of attendees. This will be really helpful when it comes to choosing the size of the party venue, establishing your budget and any other aspects of further planning.

Pick the most convenient date – Talk to your guests and agree on the best times together. It’s always better to have a couple of different dates in mind, as this broadens your choice and gives you more alternatives to choose from. Another good tip is to consider off-peak dates, as the hire rates for party venues in Sydney tend to be much lower on weekdays.

Decide on catering options – Are you keen on a full-blown three-course meal, a barbecue, or simply a selection of finger food to snack on? If any of your guests have special dietary requirements, make sure you can meet their needs.

Choose the right venue - The most important thing when looking for a venue is that it should be a place where everyone can have fun. Look for a location that will accommodate your guest list comfortably and a layout that matches the style of celebration you're planning.

Now let's talk about the kind of party you're throwing. Are you organising an engagement party for your friends? Do you want something fun and relaxed for your birthday? Are you planning an office away day? Here is a list of parties you can organise in Sydney with venue suggestions to match the occasion.

Birthday party - A birthday is a special occasion to show someone how much you appreciate them or to surround yourself on your special day with people who support you, care about you, and love you. Whether it's a big dinner with your family or an intimate gathering of your best friends, it’s a great occasion to have a little fun and celebration.

Our venue suggestion:

Morpheus Cruises - Why not celebrate the special occasion in a truly unique way? Tailoring the menu and mood of the venue to the occasion, this spot is great for all kinds of birthday celebrations. Rated by our guests 4.7/5

Engagement party - An engagement is a great occasion for a party and celebration. It's the culmination of two people who are in love, and a reason to bring friends and family together to revel in this joyous occasion. Whether you decide to throw a big affair with all of your friends, or just opt for a private celebration with only family members, it’s always worth celebrating your upcoming future.

Our venue suggestion:

Crowne Plaza Sydney Coogee Beach - A versatile event venue that can cater to all the needs of your party. The beautiful views of the ocean will make a great backdrop for photos. Guest rating: 5.0/5

Outdoor party - The spring and summer months call for an outdoor event! What beats a nice cocktail out in the sun? Or freshly grilled meat followed by a pint of cold drink? Usually more relaxed in style, outdoor parties are great opportunities to bring your friends or family for a nice get-together.

Our venue suggestion:

The Duke of Enmore -  Live music, freshly grilled food, and a share plate mentality provide for a great outdoor experience for you and your friends. Think about a party in your backyard, without the hassle of cleaning up! Guest rating: 4.3/5

Children's party - Is there anything more fun than a kids' party? Not only are they less stress-inducing than adult parties, but they're also more laid back and relaxed. When you throw an event for children, you can be sure that the festivities will be just as carefree and simple as they are. With the added bonus of other children to play with, this can be a very entertaining way to spend some time.

Our venue suggestion:

Will & Mike's - This versatile and spacious venue is perfect for a party for the young ones! Whether it's your kid's paint and play or a younger teen's birthday party, you'll have plenty of fun at this venue.

Corporate party - Office parties are a great opportunity for everyone to relax and enjoy themselves in a safe environment without worrying about work stressors like phone calls, e-mails, deadlines or even the boss! The right corporate party can help cement company camaraderie, build morale and boost productivity. If you have employees from different departments coming together, it will help them to know each other better.

Our venue suggestion:

The Captain's Balcony - Located in the heart of Sydney’s CBD, it's a great spot for a corporate event or an after-work drink reception with your colleagues. Both indoor and outdoor spaces provide all-year long event possibilities. Guest rating: 5.0/5

Sydney offers a vast range of various venues you can hire for your party. You can go with classic ones like bars, restaurants, or cafes.

Booked Vault at New Hampton Hotel
Everything about this place was exceptional. Cleanliness, staff professionalism and venue in itself… but ultimately the food was the standout! Amazing
Chelsey V.
Booked Attic at The ArtHouse Hotel
I hosted a small reception in the Attic Bar for 50 ppl. Caitlin was very helpful and attentive with my inquiries and request for the event. The on-duty staff were also very friendly. Guests loved the cosy atmosphere and the very central location of the hotel (it was raining but they were able to walk under shelter to Town hall station, which is literally a couple minutes away). The food was tasty, except for the curry which was a bit too spicy for some guests.
