Tagvenue will help you find an ideal space; you only need to take our smart engines for a spin to spoil yourself with a wide range of great offers.
And if you’re wondering how to find an ideal restaurant space to help you take your celebrations up a notch, look below. We’ve prepared a short guide with all the elements you should consider to make your search short and sweet.
Set your budget - Consider how much you can spend for the whole dinner. Include such elements as venue rental, catering, possible decorations, and entertainment. This step is important — after you complete it, you’ll be able to quickly determine the style and shape of your Thanksgiving dinner, and decide whether an all-inclusive per-person package or a minimum spend will be an ideal deal for you.
Draw up a guest list - The next crucial step is to consider whom you’d like to invite to your dinner and write down the guest list. When you can estimate the number of people who will come, you’ll easily pick a venue with the ideal layout that can comfortably accommodate everyone. This part is especially important when you’re planning a big feast — you’d like to avoid a situation where you do not have enough room for all your guests. On the other hand, if you’re leaning towards an intimate celebration, all of your planning will help you avoid overspending on a restaurant space that might be too big for you.
Choose the festive menu - Would you like to host a traditional Thanksgiving dinner where the roast turkey is the star of the menu? Or are you considering something more out of the ordinary, such as sushi, steak, or octopus? The choice is yours! Seattle boasts a fantastic selection of restaurants where you can find exactly what you want, even on Thanksgiving! Make sure your menu is appropriate for all of your guests’ dietary restrictions.
Pick a great location - When picking the ideal restaurant, you should also consider its location. It should be convenient and easy to reach via public transportation, and ideally, it should have a parking lot, even nearby. Remember, a great location can win you a few more guests, so pick a venue that has the best one!
Compare the offers - Pick at least three offers that have caught your eye and thoroughly compare them based on your needs. After all, you’d like to ensure you're getting the best deal for your money, wouldn’t you? Checking for their reviews will also be helpful as you will get a hint of whether other people were happy about the venue and the service. In addition, it’s a great way to verify the restaurant’s experience with hosting private events and check how good they are. By comparing the offer, you will quickly see which one stands out and meets expectations.
Check the place’s ambiance - The venue’s character and atmosphere play a huge role in setting the mood and bringing your vision of an ideal dinner to life. So, would you like an upscale and modern restaurant or something more laid-back and casual? Once you pick your first-choice option, we suggest scheduling a viewing. Seeing the space in person will help you judge whether it’s the right fit for you and your crowd. You will also be able to check the quality of service. Perhaps it will be a great idea to take your partner for a spontaneous date to your first-choice venue? Not only will you see how it appears in real life, but you will also be able to sample the menu!
We hope that now, after skimming through our guide, you’re ready to book your ideal restaurant for Thanksgiving. So how about checking what type of spaces we have on offer? The earlier you start your search, the more spaces you’ll have to choose from that match your needs and wallet! So do it now. We guarantee that you’ll be amazed by our selection of venues.
To rent a Thanksgiving restaurant in Seattle, expect prices to start from as low as $75 per person for a three-course menu. However, we highly suggest asking the venue managers directly for individual offers that can be prepared based on your party’s size and individual needs.
It's not uncommon for restaurants to offer a traditional Thanksgiving meal, which usually consists of some variation of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. Some restaurants may also include other traditional holiday foods such as cornbread dressing or sweet potato casserole.
You can find fantastic options in the Central Business District and Pike Place Market. This neighborhood features restaurants offering delicious treats prepared especially for this special day. Most of them offer three-course menus which include such classics as roast turkey, honey glazed ham, sweet potatoes, and more. And if you’re not big on turkey, head over to Downtown, where you can taste anything from juicy steaks to vegetarian lasagna!
The answer to that question is: as soon as you can! Especially if you're looking for a place to host your whole family, it's better to lock in your reservation early. Along with the holiday season, Thanksgiving is a busy time of the year, and restaurants book up fast, so to ensure your peace of mind and make sure that you can choose from among the best offers available, you should secure the booking 3 to 2 months in advance.
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!
