Party Venues in Hackney FAQ

How are party venues in Hackney priced?

Before choosing the ideal venue for your next party, it’s important to figure out which kind of venue hire works best for you. The minimum spend, where you only pay for what you eat and drink during the event, is the most popular option in the borough of Hackney. The majority of party spaces range from £25 up to £4,000 minimum spend per event, but you can find venues charging as much as £40,000. Hire fees, on the other hand, mean that you’re only charged for using the space and you have to pay for catering separately. In Hackney, they start at £18 per hour or £30 per day. The final option you’ll find in the area are package deals, which include everything in the price. These are usually priced between £10 and £175 per person. (All data from Tagvenue.)

What kinds of party venues can I hire in Hackney?

Hackney is Londoners’ go-to area for clubbing, so it’s no surprise that you’ll find an array of nightclubs and bars available for hire. The borough is also known for its converted warehouses, which are perfect for large parties and raves. Aside from that, there are many pubs, restaurants, and cafes that are more than happy to host your upcoming celebration! These venues usually offer full-venue hire or private and semi-private areas. If you’re looking for a bit of a gritty setting, check out the basement spaces in the district.

The area also features some venues that function more like a dry hire - lofts, studios, and halls - where you can arrange everything by yourself or work with an event planning professional. When you’re on the lookout for unconventional spaces in Hackney, you won’t struggle to find something that fits your taste - from karaoke rooms and cinema screens to boats, the selection is outstanding!

Finally, Hackney is perfect for organising summer parties! It’s rich in outdoor terraces, rooftops, and yards, so you celebrate in the sun, sip on delicious drinks, and spend quality time with your friends.

Booked The JubJub at Callooh Callay Shoreditch
We hired the JubJub for my husband's 40th birthday and had a really great experience. Liese and Kamila were really helpful in helping me set up the event, including customising the cocktail menu with names themed around my husband (which everyone loved). Mike looked after us on the night and was a total legend, mixing cocktails, taking food orders, helping us with the cake and singing logistics and helping us put our own playlist on. Huge thanks to all the team - would highly recommend anyone to book with Callooh Callay!
Derek Brazell
Booked Whole Venue at The Whitecross Tap
Very welcoming and James and the staff were really efficient and helpful. Tasty pizzas and nicely delivered. They disappeared quickly! We all had a brilliant time - great venue for a party with perfect space for dancing too. We loved the DJ's selections.
Booked The Famous Cocktail Bar at The Famous Cock Tavern
The venue was perfect for my 40th Birthday party! :) The venue location was excellent, the staff were super helpful and friendly.. The fact that I could play my own music selection was great too!
Booked The Loft at Low Profile Studios
From start to finish, I had an amazing experience with the owner and the staff. My party was a success and I’ve been getting nothing but great feedback. The venue is a good size and has loads of rooms.
Annis Waugh
Booked The Aviary at Upper House
The staff in the run up to the party were so helpful and accommodating. On the night the team were great and our barman was a total star. Every question I had was answered and the team were hugely cooperative. Highly recommend for a party in a private room.
Mireia Borrell
Booked The Aviary at Upper House
Everything was great! The Library is a very nice, cozy room, and we were provided with plenty of drinks, the food was really good (we ordered platters and everyone was commenting on how yummy the chicken was), the music system was great, you can play your own spotify playlist, and it is really a very charming room, with decorated wallpaper, very nice mirrors and elegant. I would definitely recommend it.
