Small Venues Hire Guide

Searching for a small venue for hire in Perth but not sure where to start? Most of the smaller venues in Perth are located in restaurants, bars and hotels. Restaurants and small bar venue hires are best for getting together with mates for a private function. Want to BYO? Some of these small venues will even allow you to bring along your own beverages. Hotels are usually the preferred choice for small meetings, as they are best equipped to handle corporate expectations. They will also usually charge a hire fee or per-person rates for the use of the venue. 

The City Centre is the best place to explore for event venue hire in Perth. The majority of venues can be found on St Georges Terrace, Adelaide Street, Hay Street and Barrack Street. You can also find a handful of venues to the west of the city centre near State Route 2 just before the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. Outside of the city centre, you can find small venues to hire in Innaloo and Sorrento to the north, Tompkins Park on the Swan River in the south or in Ascot to the east.

Small Venues in Perth FAQ

How much does it cost to hire a small venue in Perth?

The average hire fee for hiring a small venue in Perth is about $100-$300+ per session or $50-$150+ per hour. You can also find venues that don't charge a hire fee but operate on minimum spend, which means you have to spend a set minimum on food and beverages. Expect to pay around $200-$350+ per session for such venues. For per-person pricing, the average charge is about $30-$50 per guest. (All data from Tagvenue.)

How can I save money on hiring a small venue in Perth?

The first thing to consider is location. If you're looking for something close to the city centre, you should be prepared to pay a premium. If you're happy with something less central, it's worth considering suburbs like Leederville or Subiaco, which isn't going to cost you an arm and a leg. The second thing to look for are venues with a minimum spend. This means that you have to spend a certain amount of money on food and beverages, but there is no hire fee. This is more common for venues with in-house catering, which leads us to the final consideration. When looking for a venue, check whether or not BYO or outside catering is an option. This can significantly cut costs, but it's not always possible. If you've decided to hire a venue with in-catering, check if the food is of a high standard and won't break the bank.

How early should I book a small venue in Perth?

The timing depends on the venue and the type of event you're hosting. If you're simply hosting an intimate celebration, you can book a small venue in Perth up to 4-8 weeks before the date of your event. However, if you're planning a wedding, then it's best to book at least 9-12 months in advance. The earlier you book, the better your chances of getting a venue on your preferred date and time. If you wait until the last minute, you may find yourself with limited options.

Makes it so much easier to find a venue and saves time. The fact that it shows the prices and room capacity is brilliant.
Siddharth Ganesh
Booked Beer Garden at The Court
We booked out the Verdict at The Court for a thesis submission party. The staff were friendly and the venue had an appropriate atmosphere for our event. Minimum spend of $500 was easily reached within the first thirty minutes. Would recommend for anyone looking for a venue to accommodate 50-200 people :)
