Minimum Spend Venues Hire Guide

Bristol is a lovely historic city, filled with exciting one-of-a-kind venues that are just right for celebrating a birthday, an engagement or an anniversary. Sometimes, when planning an occasion you don’t want to lay out a lot of cash ahead of time. That’s when it makes perfect sense to consider minimum spend - essentially a free venue hire. Minimum spend means that you agree with the venue on the amount you and your group will spend within your session time. But there are a few things you should bear in mind when choosing this type of hire:

  • Location, location, location. Most minimum spend venues tend to be pubs, bars and restaurants, so understanding your likely venue before you start your search will help you pick a place that will suit the size and interests of your group. Not to mention the needs of your particular kind of event.
  • Minimum spend amount. This can vary according to the type and size of the venue, so be sure to choose one that you feel sure you and your group can meet. Also, understand the fine points before you start your event. Ask if minimum spend includes only the drinks, or both the drinks and food. 
  • Talk to your guests. Let your invitees know the rules of the game. They need to be drinking and eating to help you reach that minimum spend level. If it helps, calculate the amount each person will need to spend to reach the agreed upon sum and let each guest know ahead of time.
