How to pick the best venue for your birthday party?
Want to pick the best venue for your needs? There are some factors you need to consider before starting your search. Lucky for you, Tagvenue has got you covered, and we’ve made a list of things to keep in mind before starting the search for your dream birthday party venue.
1. Decide how you want your celebration to look like
Would you like to hit the city’s vibrant nightlife scene? Or maybe pamper yourself with an exclusive dining experience? Pick a place adored by celebrities? Whatever your wish, decide what type of celebration would suit you best. Remember, there’s no need to throw a lavish party when you don’t feel comfortable surrounded by loud music and a big crowd. If you want to blow out your birthday candles among a low-key crowd, that’s also perfect!
2. Set your budget
No matter if you want to splurge on your celebrations, or keep it reasonable, estimate how much money you can spend on space rental, catering, decorations, and additional entertainment. You can use a spreadsheet, or write down your costs on a sheet of paper. Tracking your expenses will help you not overspend, and keep you focused on finding the best reasonable offers. Keep in mind that in some cases it will be best to rent out a venue and caterer separately, rather than opting for food provided by the venue. Venues also often offer affordable party packages that are charged per guest, so don’t hesitate to ask managers about other options.
3. Make a guestlist
Write down a list of those with whom you wish to celebrate on this special day. This will help you find venues with the right capacity to accommodate all your crowd. Once you have the list settled, you’re ready to start your hunt! To make it even easier, take Tagvenue’s smart filters for a spin. They will show you only those spaces that match the right capacity and price range that you have entered.
4. Pick your location
Consider where in the city you would like to celebrate. In the beating heart of Manhattan and its vibrant surroundings? In one of buzzing Brooklyn’s hipster hangouts? In one of the uniquely charming neighborhoods of Queens? Or maybe in the soulful Bronx or chilled and laid back Staten Island? Each borough boasts fantastic venue options for you to choose from depending on your taste. Whether you want to stay in your own neighborhood or cross the city to discover its hidden gems is up to you! However, keep in mind that the location should be accessible to your party guests. Many venues on Tagvenue are located a stone’s throw from subway stations, or bus stops, so make sure to check them out.
5. Decide on food & drinks
Picking the type of food and drinks that you want at your birthday event may help you determine which type of party venue to look for. Restaurants are a great choice when you would like to have a full-course meal at your party. You can rent out one with a private or semi-private dining room to enjoy your party away from prying eyes. If you want to serve different types of finger foods and cocktails you should look among the city’s bars, cafes, or party spaces and hire an outside caterer that will provide those delicious treats. But make sure that whatever food option you choose satisfies your guests’ dietary restrictions.
Once you’ve considered all the factors listed above, you’re all ready to start your venue exploration! And with Tagvenue it’ll be short and sweet! So make sure to check our curated list of venues all over New York because your dream pick is only a few clicks away!
