Birthday Party Venues Hire Guide

Hosting a big birthday bash but not sure where to start? No problem, Tagvenue is here to lend a helping hand. Our round-up of the best birthday party venues in London is definitely worth celebrating. From chic cocktail emporiums to cool karaoke bars, Tagvenue lists a diverse range of birthday places in London that’ll help make your big day go off with a bang.

Here are some things to consider when hiring a birthday party venue:

  • The convenience of its location and transport links.

  • The style of venue that would best suit (are you looking for a posh Mayfair restaurant, a VIP party bus for a surprise party, or would you like to hire one of the best bars for birthdays in London?).

  • Your budget.

  • The size of your guest list (do you need an intimate space for a girls' night out with your BFFs or a large space for a joint birthday party?).

  • The time of your event.

  • Entertainment options (DJ, live band, beer pong, photo booth, etc.).

  • Your catering needs (whether the venue allows external catering, can cater to dietary requirements, etc.).

  • Whether you need a contingency plan for wet weather (this is essential for outdoor venues, like gardens and terraces).

Get inspired by some of these birthday party ideas:

  • Afternoon tea – it’s hard to think of a more British way to celebrate a birthday! Indulge yourself and your guests with delightful treats, such as scones with clotted cream and shortbreads. High tea is a really special way to celebrate a milestone birthday party, like a 30th, 40th or 80th.

  • Boat party – full steam ahead! Enjoy breathtaking views of the Thames and London’s iconic skyline while you’re celebrating your birthday. No matter if you’re searching for a luxury boat or something more affordable, #tagvenue has a host of boat birthday party venues for you to choose from.

  • Quirky birthday – let your imagination run completely wild. Going with a cool theme, like a Hawaiian luau, the Roaring 20s or the hippie 70s is always a lot of fun. Or maybe you’d prefer a royal theme for something a little extravagant? Hiring a dry hire or blank canvas venue might be a good idea, as it gives you a lot of creative freedom. You can also try bar hire or take a look at some of the best party halls in London. Tagvenue is here to help you make your birthday bash a day – or night – to remember!

Birthday Party Venues in London FAQ

What kind of venue is good for a birthday party?

You can hold a birthday party pretty much anywhere that suits your taste. Some great traditional locations for a party, however, include bars and pubs, which have the benefit of having no hire fee. Also be sure and look at studios or cafes, as these smaller spaces offer a cosy feel and reasonable whole venue hire.

Why should I hire a venue for a birthday party?

Hiring a venue for a birthday party is a low stress way to celebrate growing older – or younger (we’ll let you decide). Regardless of your age, you won’t have to suffer the pangs of preparing your home for a large group and you also won’t face having to do the dishes afterwards.

Can I bring my own alcohol and food for my birthday party?

Be sure and check the venue offer before you book your event to make sure. Also, double check with the venue manager to ensure that they are able to support your catering vendor as needed. You might want to investigate whether there are any extra fees for this, such as a corkage fee, for example.

Booked The Den at The Book Club
The Den was the perfect venue to have my 21st birthday party. Upon arrival, I was greeted by the security who wished me and said that they would take care of the party guests. The bar staff were excellent: it was easy to pre order drinks and food and organise a token system (instead of an open bar tab.) Thank you to Juliette for the event management, Malika and her team at the Book Club for an amazing, seamless evening of music and fun.
Samuel NG
Booked Whole Venue at The Green Room
Thank you to Colours Hoxton for hosting my 21st Birthday party it was a great night and everyone had a great time the venue got everything right from the lighting and to the space of the venue. Many thanks to Audrey and Stephanie for keeping in touch with me helping me with the whole venue they were very helpful and reliable when it came to important questions about the place and key information eg pricing, drinks, booking out the venue and many more. When I arrived the staff were very friendly and they went through everything very sufficiently and smoothly. The bartenders were very nice and made sure everyone was having a good time and made sure to clean any spillages. Many thanks to Security Sam made sure everyone was safe and did an amazing job too. Thank you once again Colours Hoxton for a great night of celebration hopes to see you again very soon!!!

Booked The Front Area at Barsmith
Everything was so brilliant at Barsmith! The staff were lovely and my birthday party went off without a hitch! All of the drinks were stored in the fridge as soon as we arrived and the area was beautiful!

Booked Basement Bar at Coin Laundry
I had my 30th birthday party in the Basement Bar at Coin Laundry. It was excellent and I highly recommend! I had about 80 people attending. The basement is a very good size which we divided into a dance floor area and a drinks/canape standing area with standing tables near the bar – which worked really well (although you can organise the room any way you want). When I arrived to set up, the basement was very tidy, and the team had laid out a prosecco area and a water stand and were happy to sort out various tables for cakes and presents. It was nicely air conditioned too which was a relief in this heatwave! The food was really good and was served as instructed. I organised a friend to come and DJ and the team assisted in making sure she had everything needed to connect her decks to the speaker system. The team were so helpful – especially Andrew and Emma (and Zac over emails). Thank you very much for making my night so enjoyable and stress-free! Also appreciate the last minute request to find a microphone and setting this up so thank you. Finally – thanks to the chefs for letting us put the cake in your fridge earlier in the day to stop it melting in the heat!
Katie Skinner
Booked The Belle Bar & Roof Terrace at Carpenters Arms
We loved the upstairs room with the attached room terrace. It was so perfect for the smokers in the group to still be very much included in the party and to not 'lose' anyone! Ordered a variety of snacks on the evening with the bar man kindly set up 'buffet' style for those who wanted to eat at one end of the room. Plenty of space for everyone! Really good evening! Great drinks prices and the food was delicious! Had so many compliments on the space, it would be so divine to hold a summer party there! Sarah the events manager is wonderful to deal with as well so thank you!
Charlotte Baker
