How to Select a Venue for Your Birthday Party in NYC

March 10, 2015 Megan Stoeckel

It seems like there’s a new “it” spot in NYC almost daily. As soon as you find a venue you love, there’s something newer and better opening down the block. So when you want to throw a truly epic birthday party New York style, it should come as no surprise that picking the perfect party venue can seem like an insurmountable hurdle. But with a few guidelines in mind, you can find the best place for your spectacular shindig. Here are some things to consider.

A good place to start is by picking a locale, whether you’re interested in upscale, artsy Chelsea or you’d rather get your groove on in the hip and happening Meatpacking District. This will significantly narrow your options when it comes to restaurants, lounges, and clubs at which to host your event. From there, you’ll need to start calling around to check for availability. Keep in mind that reservations can be difficult to obtain, so you might actually want to seek out the promoters or promotion companies connected to particular venues – they can get you in the door and set you up with VIP service for your birthday bash. Many will even help you come up with 25th birthday party ideas New York that are sure to wow you and your guests.

Of course, there are still a few details to work out. Will the venue you’re interested in allow you to bring in food and drinks or will they provide the spread you require? Can you arrange for a private area (a room or VIP tables, for example), set up decorations, and have guests arrive in costume for a themed event? Is the club owner willing to work with an event planner to make your party pop? Before you book a venue for your birthday extravaganza, you need to confirm that you can have the party you’re planning at a particular spot.

You might think that coming up with 30th birthday party ideas New York is the hardest part of kicking off your special day in style. But when you live in the city that never sleeps, selecting the best venue for your event could be even more difficult. However, with the right services on your side, you can nail down the perfect place and get all your ducks in a row. Start with a list of potential venues, find the promoters or event planners that can get you in the door and design your perfect party, and then sit back and enjoy a carefree celebration of the day you were born.
