Small Venues Hire Guide

Since Manchester is one of the most visited cities in the UK, it is bound to have an abundance of choices. Everyone can find something to their liking. Small bars and private dining rooms or lounges are among the favourites for private hire, while spaces in hotels and office buildings are preferred for business functions.

There are several advantages to booking a small venue, most notably the price. With Manchester being rather expensive, staying on a budget can be a challenge. It’s not impossible, though! Booking a smaller venue instead of a large one will spare you from emptying your wallet.

Another perk of hiring a small venue is easier organisation. Fewer guests mean fewer people to satisfy. That will save you time and patience. From the fancy bars of Spinningfields to the shiny new developments of Salford Quays, a diverse city like Manchester has many different options when it comes to venue hire. A smaller group makes it easier to accommodate your guest’s needs and there are more venue options to choose from than when looking for a big space!


If you pick a smaller venue you also have the possibility to go wild on the decor since there is less space to cover. Hiring a small space will allow you to allocate more money to flowers, lanterns, balloons, posters or other decorative elements. It doesn’t matter if you decide to hire a venue in Bolton, Stockport or Warrington, as having tasteful, thematic decorations can bring any event to another level.
