Minimum Spend Venues Hire Guide

So, how exactly does free venue hire work in Liverpool? The minimum spend concept is very popular in the city, as it doesn’t require you to pay a hire fee to use a venue. Instead, you commit to spending a certain amount of money on food and/or drinks in your desired space. This is why this concept is also known as free venue hire, a very affordable alternative to other pricing models.

If you're wondering exactly what kinds of events minimum spend venues work best for, our answer is definitely parties! If you're planning a birthday celebration, hen or stag do, or any other kind of special occasion, these spaces will definitely be a great choice. After all, you'd most likely spend a lot of money on food and drinks anyway, so might as well do it in a space hired just for you! Other great ideas are intimate dinners with your family, reunions, or just relaxed get-togethers with your closest friend group!

There are two types of spaces that most frequently work with minimum spend rates. Those are party venues and private dining venues, most of which can be found around Ropewalks and Baltic Triangle. Since both of these event types come with some kind of consumption, it is easy for the venue managers to determine a minimum spend rate. This also makes it very convenient for you to pay for the event since your guests would spend a similar amount of money on food and drinks anyway. Picking a minimum spend venue is usually the most affordable choice if you’re using the venue’s in-house catering. Liverpool has plenty of options on offer and we know where to find the best ones!

Sophie L.
Booked Rum & Rumour Cabaret Bar at Ma Boyle's Alehouse & Eatery
We hired the Rum and Rumour bar for a 30th birthday party and I couldn’t recommend it more. The service and communication provided by Ma Boyle’s was brilliant and Becky made the booking and planning very easy. Excellent value for money too. Thanks Becky and Ma Boyle’s!
