If you're looking for a venue to host an 18th birthday party, there are plenty of great options in London. Here are some of our top recommendations:
Kona Kai is a tiki-themed venue that may be right for you if you're looking for something out of the ordinary but still comfortable. The décor is fun and kitschy, with a lot of bamboo and palm trees to transport you to a tropical paradise. The venue accommodates parties of up to 150 people seated and 350 standing. If you’re looking for a place that feels like Hawaii but doesn’t require an actual plane ticket, Kona Kai is the perfect spot.
Decadia at Tiger Tiger London is one of our favourite places to hold parties. It’s a whole throwback to the nineties and noughties with its quirky interior and colourful decor. There’s plenty of space for dancing or mingling around the bar, which has a large selection of cocktails and mocktails. The venue offers catering in-house with a wide range of menu options available to suit everyone's tastes. This venue can accommodate up to 350 people standing and 140 seated, so it's a good choice for social butterflies who have tons of friends.
Rooftop Terrace at Good Hotel London is great for an outdoor celebration. The venue offers magnificent views of Canary Wharf and the River Thames and is perfect for a summer birthday party of up to 120 guests. The venue provides catering and beverages, so you can have a hassle-free party while enjoying the scenery. If you’re looking for a rooftop celebration with great views and a stylish atmosphere, Good Hotel London offers a great setting for your party.
Make sure to check the venue's policy and ask the manager before you start your preparations. While some venues will allow you to decorate the space on your own, others may have certain restrictions or don’t allow any outside decorations.
You should book your birthday party venue in London as early as possible, preferably at least two months before your party. This will give you plenty of time to find the right venue and ensure everything runs smoothly.
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!
