Birthday Party Venues Hire Guide

Time to host a birthday celebration? With Tagvenue it’s going to be the best bash ever. We know where to find really good venues for birthday parties in Manchester. And the icing on the cake? We’ve gathered them all in one place and topped it all off with a smart search engine. All this will help you find a perfect party room hire in a snap.

When starting your search for a birthday party venue for hire in Manchester, remember to consider the following aspects:

  • Venue’s location – Manchester boasts plenty of interesting areas, from the world-famous Canal Street to the modern glass and steel buildings of Spinningfields. Each neighbourhood offers a mix of birthday party locations, and our platform makes picking the right ones as easy as can be.
  • Transport links – The experience begins while you’re on the way. If the majority of your guests will be arriving by car, make sure there are enough parking spaces nearby. Remember to check the closest Metrolink, railway and bus stations. The last part is particularly important for birthday party spots in Greater Manchester.
  • Venue’s capacity Manchester birthday party venues vary in shape and size. For example, an intimate gathering only needs a private dining room or a small birthday venue, while bigger celebrations may require hiring an entire event space like a ballroom or a hall. If you’re considering clubs to hire for an 18th birthday, for instance, make sure there’s plenty of space for people to move around and dance!
  • Catering – If you're hiring a venue that will provide catering for the event, for example a birthday party restaurant, make sure they’re able to meet all your requirements. Check whether some of your guests have special requests, such as kosher fare or a vegan menu.

A famous Mancunian musician, Ian Brown of The Stone Roses, once said that Manchester has everything except a beach. He’s got a point! Manchester offers a wide choice of birthday party venues, but the key is to find the one that’s right for your concept. With Tagvenue, this task becomes much easier. Here are our favourite birthday venue types:

  • Traditional pubs – a classic that never disappoints, especially for your birthday! We’re listing the best Mancunian watering holes, from dim drinkeries to gastropubs where five-star flavours meet ice cold pints – isn’t it a match made in foodie heaven? The variety of pubs for birthdays in Manchester is so big you’re sure to find a party spot that’s your cup of tea… or more like your glass of beer in this case, pardon the pun!
  • Cocktail bars – the mixologists of Manchester sure know how to make magic. They absolutely rock classic margaritas and mojitos, as well as creative signature cocktails. Need more inspiration? When throwing a Manchester cocktail birthday party for a retro lover, choose a speakeasy style bar. Hosting a gathering in one of Manchester's hidden gem venues makes the entire birthday celebration even more special. Gathering in one of Manchester's private party bars known for their old-school swank will make sure that birthday venue really hits the mark!
  • Restaurants of all kinds – these are the best birthday party rooms for all foodies. There’s no better gift for a food lover than a private dinner in a top-class restaurant. What’s more, Manchester’s culinary variety is extraordinary. Do you prefer an Italian trattoria, a Tex-Mex joint or an American-style diner? You name it, we’re here to help you find a birthday dinner venue that you’ll all remember as one of the best culinary experiences you’ve ever had. One more tip: some birthday restaurantsw22 offer special private dining packages. Not only are these well thought out, but these packages are often a good deal as well.

Still not sure about the final plan for your birthday party? We’ve listed some of the best birthday party ideas below:

  • Surprise birthday party – the art of keeping a secret at its best. It’s fun for both the birthday girl or the birthday boy, as well as for the organisers. Our advice? Listen carefully – the person you’re organising a birthday party for is probably dropping some valuable hints, consciously or not. Also, remember to ask the birthday party venue manager if you can arrive earlier in order to set everything up.
  • Fancy dress party – another idea that never gets old (no matter how old you are). Our favourites include: Hawaiian themed birthday bash in a Tiki bar, Mad Hatter’s tea party with guests dressed as Alice in Wonderland characters, or simply a pyjama party in a laid-back birthday party venue (Manchester is full of those). A fancy dress birthday party in Manchester is a wonderful occasion to let your hair down, get creative with the costumes and simply have lots of fun.
  • Fun games – everyone likes a bit of competition. That’s why activities like bowling, beer pong or dance-offs never fail to entertain the guests. We’ve gathered a roundup of birthday party locations with activities in Manchester that are more than happy to host these types of parties, or even offer special facilities for games. Ready to play?

We had an excellent time here for my friend’s leaving do. It was really straight forward to organise and Dani got back to every question I had very quickly. Matthew and Liam were the perfect hosts; they made us feel very welcome, rustled us up some amazing cocktails and made the whole night feel a very special occasion. The live singer was amazing too! Will definitely come again. Thank you so much!

Booked Private Ballroom at Black Dog NQ
- Everything about the experience was incredibly smooth, from the booking to the payment to the day itself - Staff we’re all super accommodating, friendly and answered any questions I had. - They helped me sort out the food situation as they weren’t doing food that night because of kitchen problems I believe, but I spoke to the manager and she let me and my friends order food to the venue instead as food was originally promised, the night couldn’t have gone any better I was super happy with the service and will definitely be booking here again! :)
