How do I choose a bar for my event in Los Angeles?

Here are some of our tips & best practices for renting the perfect bar in Los Angeles:

Your drink of choice - This is a no-brainer: if you’re renting a bar for your event, you’re most likely going to consume some liquor. Why not focus on the type of drinks you want to serve to your guests? Will you be drinking cocktails or mocktails? Craft beer or wine made from the finest grapes? Spirits or soft drinks? No matter what your preference is, Los Angeles has bars that specialize in any type of drinks you can imagine.

Ambiance - Pick a bar with the right ambiance. Things such as decor, music and lighting all add up to create the perfect mood. Would you like to rent a bar with classic and elegant interiors, something sleek and modern or perhaps a quirky space with eclectic design? Do you want access to natural light or are mood lighting and neon lights more your style? Would you rather listen to jazz, hip hop or maybe you’d prefer a live music bar? Are you looking for a bar where you can dance? Think about what best suits you and the type of event you’re hosting, then trust Tagvenue to find a space that ticks all the boxes.

Neighborhood - Explore energetic Downtown and its hottest bars or check out artsy Los Feliz and the hip places it has to offer. Or maybe you’d prefer a beach bar in Venice? The cities and neighborhoods that make up the sprawling Los Angeles area all bring something a little bit different to the table. You can simply choose a location that’s closest to you or try to find an area whose vibes match the atmosphere you’re aiming for with your event.

Capacity - Are you looking for a small bar or do you need more space? From intimate private booths to exclusive use of the entire bar, the bars in Los Angeles cater to events of all sizes. So put together your guest list and use Tagvenue’s filters to find a bar that’s just the right size!

Budget - Last but definitely not least, set a budget. LA’s extravagant bars can lean toward the pricier side, but you can still find options that are more than affordable. If you don’t want to compromise on location and event size, we have some tips and tricks to help you save some money if you’re on a tight budget. Talk to your venue manager about pricing options: some bars will offer attractive drinks packages with prices per person. You could arrange a cash bar for your guests, i.e. have them pay for all the drinks they get from the bar. Or you could go for a timed open bar, where drinks are on you for the first hour or two of your event.

Guest Reviews of Private Bars on Tagvenue

Bruno R.
Booked Entire Venue at THE SPEAKEASY - Many Sets, Filming & Events
The place is incredible, a mix of a barber shop, a speakease, a beautiful photobooth, and an incredible retro space for photos, shows, clips, events, etc... The size is small, but ideal for small projects or small celebrations, it is my second time there and I highly recommend it... possibly I will rent it again soon.
Destiny W.
Booked Upstairs Private Lounge at Berkshire House
The location was great! The team and staff were professional and kind! Everyone had a great time! 10/10 recommend.
Marcus L.
Booked Side Room at Jalapeno Pete's
I really like the side room it’s big enough for about 40-50 people, the use of the Photo Booth was included in the rental and you get a private bar tender. The food was amazing, we recommend doing the tacos for a big party. The rental price is very reasonable. They allow you to bring a dj and/or play your own music.
Booked Secret Underground Speakeasy at Leather & Rose
The space was unique, welcoming, cozy, and ultimately exactly wanted out of a 30th birthday celebration. Nick, Kat, and Jimmy are wonderful people and were super friendly and accommodating. All of my guest felt like they were transported to a whole different side of LA, as well as a whole different era! All in all, I was happy that everything was set up and taken care of, leaving me with nothing to worry about except my karaoke performance.
