Shoreditch Venues Hire Guide

Shoreditch is known for its rich history, hipster culture and vibrant nightlife. It’s where many locals and tourists alike flock to enjoy a delightful range of bars, restaurants and other establishments. It’s also a great spot to have your party! Bring your friends and family together, share some laughs, and celebrate the special occasion. When organising an event, there are plenty of things to plan, like decorations, food, drinks and music. To help you out, we’ve prepared some points to keep in mind when organising a party:

Create a budget. One of the most important things to keep in mind when planning a party is your budget. It's easy to get carried away with all the fun details and forget that there's a limit! When you're thinking about how much money you'd like to spend on the party, make sure that you're considering all aspects of the event. You'll need to take into account venue hire, food and drinks, invitations and decorations, entertainment, favours for guests and any other extras you might want for your event. If there's something particular that you're dying to splurge on (like a specialty cocktail or an open bar), plan your budget around that one thing.

Set a guest list. Decide who you would like to invite and send out the invitations as soon as possible. Having your guest list ready ahead of time will help you decide how big of a venue you need to hire, how much food and drinks you need, and how to plan your party agenda. If you’re planning a cocktail party you can invite more people, as they usually don’t require seating. But if you’re hosting a dinner party, remember that each person needs enough space to comfortably sit at the table, so you will need either a bigger venue or fewer people to attend your event.

Decide on the menu. The menu should cater to the theme of your party as well as to your guests' tastes and dietary needs. If the venue doesn't serve food on its own but allows for external catering, ask the venue if they have any preferred suppliers that they work with regularly. Perhaps you could get a discount for your party. If you’re planning a dance party or any other kind of event that usually doesn’t require serving food to your guests, search the area around your venue to see whether there are any eateries around for those guests who would like to grab a bite during your party.

Choose a theme. Choosing a theme for your party is a great way to set your event apart and wow your guests. Whether you’re planning a birthday bash or a baby shower, throwing a themed party is the perfect way to get your guests excited about attending. It also helps you keep your budget in check, as it will guide you toward things like decorations, favours, and foods that fit into that particular theme. Once you decide on the theme, your search for a venue will become much easier as well, as you look for something to fit your vision.

Additional entertainment. The type of entertainment you choose will depend on the atmosphere of your party and the type of crowd you're entertaining. When deciding on what you could add to your party, the best thing to do is to look at your guest list and see what could be enjoyed by most, if not all, of your guests to liven up the celebrations. There are several types of entertainment to choose from: a DJ, a karaoke machine, or even a dance floor can be a nice addition to any event. If you don’t have a budget for any extra hire, plan some activities for your guests to participate in, or prepare conversation starters for those who may need some encouragement to get socialising.
