Outdoor Venues Rental Guide

They say it never rains in Southern California, so what better way to make the best of the perfect weather and beautiful surroundings than by hosting your event outdoors? Choose a cafe with a patio in a lively location for some people watching or somewhere by the coast so you can feel the ocean breeze and sunshine on your face. And if you want some intimacy, perhaps you’d like a restaurant with a private backyard that’s hidden from the rest of the world. All of these are plentiful in beautiful LA. So why not explore your options with Tagvenue, and choose the spot that suits you best?

How can I make my outdoor event in Los Angeles a success?

Check out some of our tips for party planning best practices when holding an outdoor event in Los Angeles.

  • Ask yourself if the event you’re planning is suitable for being hosted outdoors. Outdoor venues in Los Angeles are versatile spaces that can be used for a variety of different occasions, such as private dining, weddings, birthday or engagement parties, and production purposes, e.g. photoshoots or filming. On the other hand, corporate events such as conferences, seminars or business meetings would probably be better hosted indoors, where you’ll have easy access to all tech equipment, such as screens, projectors, whiteboards, etc. However, if you’re organizing a day of fun team building activities with your professional team, an outdoor venue might be a great fit!
  • Pick the right type of venue. Spend some time defining the kind of space that would best suit your type of event. Decide if you’d rather rent out a venue, such as an outdoor patio at a restaurant or a private garden, or use a public open space, such as a park or a beach. If you go for the second option, educate yourself on the rules of hosting outdoor events in your chosen area and, if applicable, make sure you get all of the necessary permits. And if you don’t want to worry about those organizational bits, rent a space.
  • Pay attention to the weather and have a plan B. Yes, Southern California is known for its perfect weather all year round, but even here it’s not always a guarantee. That’s why you need to have a Plan B. Have garden umbrellas ready, set up portable pavilions or tents or reserve the option to move the event indoors just in case. Even if it doesn’t rain, too much sunshine or wind can also be a problem. Check whether your venue has some shady areas where your guests can cool off or escape the weather.
  • Prioritize the comfort of your guests. The key to hosting a successful event is making sure your guests are feeling comfortable and enjoying themselves. Always consider these variables when choosing your outdoor location, e.g. don’t go for a noisy area by a busy street if you want to be able to have conversations and hear one another, check if your chosen space is accessible for any attendees with disabilities
  • Make sure you have the necessary equipment. Depending on the type of event, you’re going to need lighting, a sound system, tents, chairs, tables, etc. When you book an outdoor venue such as a patio or a private garden, always ask the venue manager if they provide all the necessary equipment, e.g. chairs, tables, etc. or whether you’ll have to rent some of it yourself. If you want more flexibility to really make the space your own, search for blank canvas venues - just make sure your budget has room for furniture rentals, decorations, etc.

Which areas in Los Angeles are the best for outdoor events?

It all boils down to personal preference. As we’ve mentioned, you can find restaurants and cafes with patios and beer gardens all over the city. Some of them are located alongside  bustling streets, while others are found in more hidden and intimate locations. If you’d like to rent a rooftop terrace with a view, Hollywood and Downtown have some of the best spots.

And what about an oceanside location for your outdoor event? LA’s coast is home to some of the most popular areas, such as trendy Santa Monica, its bohemian neighbor Venice, celebrity-loved Malibu, party center Hermosa Beach or Marina del Rey, whose harbor is filled with luxurious yachts that can also be rented out for your event!

If you’re looking for a quieter area, consider Brentwood or Pasadena. Though Los Feliz and Silver Lake remain close to Downtown, they offer a relaxed ambiance that is perfect for a sun-filled afternoon.

Los Angeles is also filled with public outdoor spaces and gorgeous picnic areas. The list is long, but start by considering these prime examples: Griffith Park, home to the Griffith Observatory, the Old Zoo and landscaped walking trails, Echo Park Lake with lawns and picnic tables, Beverly Gardens Park that features a lily pond, numerous art sculptures and the famous Beverly Hills sign, Grand Park in front of City Hall or Vista Hermosa Natural Park with stunning views over the Downtown skyline.
