Can you share tips for hiring a party venue in Edinburgh?

Absolutely! Here are some helpful tips for hiring an event space in Edinburgh!

  • Determine your budget - Before looking for a party hall, decide on your budget. This way, you'll determine a reasonable price range that will help you narrow down your options and avoid overspending.
  • Know your guest list - Have a clear idea of how many guests you'll be inviting and their needs. This will help you choose a venue that can accommodate your group size and any special requirements. For example, if you're organising a birthday for your child, you might look for kids' party venues in Edinburgh! 
  • Consider the location - Edinburgh has a range of function rooms for parties to choose from, but make sure that the one you will go for is convenient for your guests and has easy access to public transportation.
  • Ask about amenities - When considering a party venue, ask about any amenities they offer, such as catering, audio/visual equipment, and decor. This can help you save time and money on additional services.
  • Read reviews - Do research and read reviews from other customers to get an idea of their experiences with the party venues. This can help you make a final decision and avoid any surprises on the day of the event.
  • Visit the venue in person - If possible, visit the venue in person before booking. This will give you a better idea of the space and help you envision how your event will look. Will it be a luxurious party in Edinburgh's city centre or a laid-back garden bash at a patio? 
  • Thoroughly read the contract - Ensure you understand the venue's terms and conditions before signing a contract. This includes details on payment, cancellation policies, and any restrictions on using the space.

Booked The Garden at Rabble
Just hosted my 21st birthday party here for 40 people. The Sales and Event Manager was incredible throughout the whole organisational process. When I arrived, all staff were super friendly and were fantastic at helping with a slightly broken cake as well as showing me the space for setting up decorations. Catering was incredible, all guests loved the food! Drinks were also delicious with a huge choice on the menu. Venue was also absolutely stunning , couldn't have found a nicer location for my birthday.
