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.
To help you out even more, we’ve prepared for you some venue suggestions:
In the vibrant neighbourhood of Shoreditch, you have a plethora of choices for great party venues. Here you will find many bars and pubs with great drinks menus, which any Brit will love. If you’re organising a dinner party, you can choose from the many restaurants Shoreditch has on offer. Look for cafes if you’re throwing a baby shower or a small get-together with your friends. Known for its nightlife, Shoreditch is full of energetic night and dance clubs available for hire. If you want to have full control over your party, you can hire blank canvas spaces like studios or lofts.
You can find minimum spend options starting around £100 and hire fees per hour start at £50. If you want to lower costs, take a look at your options and consider choosing a less popular day of the week or time. Don’t be afraid to negotiate. (All data from Tagvenue.)
With the great choice of venues we have on offer, you are sure to find one that will fit your budget. For cheaper options, you can browse through venues that operate on a minimum spend basis. With such a hire, you don’t have to pay for the booking of the venue, but you and your guests are required to spend the agreed amount at the venue. If you’re meeting with your friends, you can look for places with a BYO policy and ask your guests to bring in the drinks and snacks for the party.
Before you hit the plethora of clubs situated around Old Street in Shoreditch, why not take your guests on a tour of the area? The area is known not only for its nightlife but also for the vibrant street art. Take a stroll around the area to find the best pieces. With guided tours available, this can be an interesting activity for your party. If you’re meeting up with shopping lovers, include a visit to one of the many markets in the area, like the Vintage Market or Columbia Street flower market.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
