What makes a venue unique?

Everyone can claim that what they offer is unique. So, what makes an event space truly stand out from the others?

Look for extraordinary interiors with an original design and immaculate attention to detail. Decor plays a huge role in creating that special vibe. The uniqueness often lies in the little quirks that make you go “wow!”. Some venues stick to a particular theme, e.g. the colonial period, British pub, Alice in Wonderland, etc. Others are eclectic in the way they mix and match different elements that on the first glance may not go well together, but somehow create an appealing whole.

It’s the venue’s general ambiance as well. It may be a specific lighting setup or the kind of music that seeps from the speakers and sets the tone for all the gatherings and happenings. The atmosphere also largely depends on the staff and the quality of service.

What kind of unique event spaces does Atlanta offer?

If you’re not sure what you’re looking for yet, let’s have a quick look at some of the types of unique event spaces that you can find throughout the city.

  • Mysterious, speakeasy vibes. If you’re searching for a little bit of a thrill combined with a sense of exclusivity, you must check out Atlanta’s speakeasies, such as Gaja Bar in Eastside Atlanta or Himitsu in Buckhead. Kept under the radar and often hidden in plain sight, these venues are one of the city’s best kept secrets. So, how do you find them and get in? Well, that’s very much part of the fun, too!
  • Authentic restaurants with global cuisine. Atlanta is known for its diverse and eclectic dining scene. The city’s eateries are appreciated not only for their award-winning food creations, but also the unique spaces in which you can enjoy all the culinary delights. So, if you’re planning a dining event, be ready to scroll through a long list of remarkable restaurants!
  • Industrial spaces. These are dominant in the downtown area of Castleberry Hill, as well as in Eastside’s Old Fourth Ward or in West Midtown. Industrial lofts, old warehouses and former factories are full of character. These types of spaces are usually flexible, offering a blank canvas on which you can create your dream event.

How do I pick a unique event space for my event?

Need a little bit of help determining what kind of space will be the best for you? Here are some questions that can push you in the right direction:

  • What type of event are you organizing? Start with coming up with a vision of your event. What’s the occasion? Are you hosting a wedding reception, celebrating a milestone birthday or throwing a birthday party with a side of the unusual? Think about what kind of space would best match the event: a restaurant, a hotel bar or maybe a rooftop lounge?
  • What kind of unique are you looking for? Unique can mean different things to different people. So, what’s your definition? What features should the venue have to rank as unique in your eyes? What is the degree of unusual that you’re interested in? Would you like a jungle-themed room that sucks you in with all of its greenery or an underground venue full of mystery? Imagine what sort of vibe would work best for your event.
  • Do you want to narrow your search to a particular area in Atlanta? Consider which Atlanta neighborhood would be the most convenient for you and your guests. Maybe you’re looking for a location with a particular vibe? You can have a look at our brief area guide here (bottom of the page). 
  • How many guests are you expecting? Yes, you want to rent a unique event space to impress your guests, but how many of them are coming to your event? Once you know the estimated number, it will be much easier to find a suitable space.
  • What is your budget? Monumental venues can come with monumental prices. But not always! There are affordable alternatives that are no less thrilling! The key thing to know, though, is how much you can spend on space rental. So set your budget, then use Tagvenue to browse venues that fit your price range.
  • Will you be serving food? Exciting food creations can surely add to the venue’s uniqueness, too! Atlanta is filled with talented chefs and their inventions – just think about what type of cuisine you’d like to serve and you’re likely to find numerous places ready to cater to your needs. And if you fall in love with a unique event space that doesn’t offer on-site catering, there’s usually an option of hiring external vendors.
  • And what about beverages? When it comes to drinks, the choice is just as wide. Dive bars, elegant hotel lounges, rooftops, wineries, pubs – many of them boast their own unique vibe. In case you want to bring your own alcohol, look for venues that allow BYOB.

Bonus tip: When browsing venues, try to think outside of the box. Why not rent a movie theater for a private party or celebrate a birthday in a dance studio? Don’t limit yourself to conventions – simply reach out to venue managers and ask whether they’ll be able to fulfill your request.
