With a wide range of unique private hire party venues to choose from, we're sure to have the perfect backdrop to make your party vision come to life. Browse all our venues or get in touch to see how we can help!

How much does a private party venue cost in London?

Most party venues will quote you a minimum spend, meaning the minimum amount of money you’ll need to commit on food and drinks. Other venues might charge you on a venue hire basis where you can food and drinks packages on. The cost of a private party will vary hugely on a multitude of factors, such as location, time of year, time of day, day of the week, number of guests and extras you want. You could expect to pay anywhere from £40pp. To keep costs down, you could even hire a semi-private space or private dining rooms, so you don’t have to hire the whole area but still have your privacy for your party. When considering the cost of a private party venue, it is important to also factor in things you’ll need like catering, theming, and entertainment.

What kind of venues could I choose for a private party in London?

Whether you’re planning a small, exclusive affair that would do well in a function room or intimate space, or a large party requiring exclusive hire of a venue, there are a plethora of fantastic venue options in London. Parties could encompass anything from corporate summer and Christmas parties for your team, to birthday parties, bar mitzvah, and special celebrations such as wedding receptions, engagements or baby showers. Whatever private event you’re throwing, you’ll want to make it extra special for your guests, and this starts with the perfect venue.

Some popular types of private party venues in London include nightclubs, bars, restaurants, hotels, and private clubs. Nightclubs and bars can be a great option for parties that are looking to have a fun atmosphere with VIP event spaces. Restaurants can be a good choice for more intimate gatherings or parties that are focused on food and drink. Hotels often have function rooms or event spaces that can be hired for private parties, and private members’ clubs may also be an option for those more upmarket celebrations.

What to consider when choosing a venue for a private party in London

When it comes to choosing the right venue for your private party, there are a few things you need to take into consideration.

Firstly, think about the type of party you’re throwing and what you want it to be like. Will it be a glamorous occasion or a laid back festival type party? How many guests will you be inviting? Will you have a sit down dinner or canapes, a buffet or bowl food? Will you have a cash bar or will you have free alcohol all night? Do you want a rooftop celebration or an underground rave? Once you’ve made all the decisions about the format and style you want the party to be, this will help you to narrow down your search and find a venue that is perfect for your event.

Secondly, consider your budget. We have a wide range of venues to suit all budgets, so be sure to set yourself a realistic budget before you start your search. And make sure you factor in all extras too, so that you don’t get a nasty surprise later down the line. Talk to the venue about the details you want so they can be included from the get go.

Thirdly, it’s really important to think about the location of your event. London is huge and there are so many different types of venue to go for. Depending on budget, think about where your guests are coming from and where would be easiest for them to get to. Make sure you’re near public transport if possible and check to see if there is any parking. Making it as easy as possible for guests to get to and from your event will make it much more likely that they’ll stay for the whole event!

Finally, don’t forget to add a splash of fun! This isn’t a conference or meeting, this is a party and you’ll want your guests to have a great time. Think about what the venue can offer by way of making the party unique and special. If you’re throwing a large party, it may be a good idea to choose a blank canvas venue so that you can completely customise it how you like. Read our guide to venue finding for more guidance.

Best venues for private parties in London

London is a fantastic city for throwing a memorable private party. Here are a few of our favourite options!

Outdoor venues for private parties in London

If you’re planning a private party in the warmer months, why not take it al-fresco? We love the Gardens at the HAC, the National Maritime Museum or Fulham’s The Hurlingham Club. For a nautical vibe, try taking to the high seas at Studio 9294 or even the iconic Cutty Sark!

Unusual venues for private parties in London

If you’re wanting to step out of the box for your party experience, there are a whole range of unusual and unique spaces and backdrops in the capital. Try Oval Space or Shoreditch Studios for an edgy, underground feel. For a more corporate but still fun vibe, the vaults at RSA House make for a unique space, as well as quirky Zetter Townhouse in Clerkenwell.

Glamorous venues for private parties in London

Finding a glamorous, exclusive space for a private party in London is not something you’ll have trouble with. Narrowing down all the options will be the hard part! We love Mayfair’s The Scotch of St James for a prestigious feel, as well as the rooftop at Trafalgar St James or Soho’s Century Club. For a sky high experience, try Searcys at The Gherkin.

Historic venues for private parties in London

If you’re wanting to make a splash in all the right ways, why not take it a bit more traditional and treat your guests to a party at a historic and iconic landmark of London? We love Tower Bridge for an iconic London experience, but traditional townhouses like 41 Portland Place, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace or One Moorgate Place also work well. You could even party at the National Gallery, with a stunning view of Trafalgar Square! For cricket fans, you can’t go wrong with Lord’s Cricket Ground!

How to plan a private party in London

Planning an unforgettable private party in London doesn't have to be difficult - with a little organisation and some well-chosen suppliers, you can create an event that your guests will be talking about for months to come. Here are our top tips for planning a private party in London:

1. Choose the right venue

One of the most important aspects of any event is choosing the perfect venue. The venue you choose will set the tone for the whole event, so it's important to take the time to find a space that is perfect for your needs. There are a number of factors to consider when choosing a venue, including the size of the space, the style of the event, and the budget. Browse all our best private party venues.

2. Find the perfect caterer

No private party is complete without delicious food and drink, so it's important to find a caterer that can create a menu that your guests will love. London is home to some of the best caterers in the world, so you're sure to find someone who can create the perfect spread for your event. Work with the venue on this too, as they may have their own in-house caterer or a preferred supplier they work with. Whatever concept you’re going for, there are sure to be delicious caterers out there that can make your vision come to life. We love Easy Gourmet as well as Sixth Sense for something a little different.

3. Get some help!

Hiring a professional events company to help with the planning and execution of your event will take a lot of the stress out of the process. They will be able to help with everything from choosing the right venue to organising suppliers and managing the budget, as well as providing support on the day. Browse our event packages for more information.

4. Set a budget

Before you start planning your event, it's important to set a budget. This will help you to ensure that you don't overspend on any aspect of the event and will make it easier to stick to your overall plan.

5. Create a guest list

The guest list is one of the most important aspects of any event, so it's important to take the time to create a list of who you would like to invite. Once you have your list, you can start to send out invitations and start planning the rest of the event. It’s also worth considering if you need extra staff like security on the door on the day of the event, to ensure that everyone who is there is supposed to be!

6. Create an incredible theme

Parties should be fun, so don’t be afraid to let your creativity run wild! Come up with a fun theme for your event and run with it! Don’t forget entertainment too! If you're throwing a birthday party, why not go for a classic circus or carnival theme? Guests will love the fun atmosphere and there's plenty of scope for entertainment options. For an engagement party, how about an elegant Great Gatsby themed bash? This is guaranteed to impress your guests and get them in the celebratory mood. If you're looking for something truly unique, why not try a Bollywood themed party? This is sure to be a hit with guests of all ages and cultures. For a corporate event, why not go for a classic black tie theme? This will give the event a sense of sophistication and style.

By following these simple tips, you can be sure that your private party in London will be an unforgettable experience for all your guests.
