About Minimum Spend Venues


London minimum spend venues are great for people looking to avoid paying an upfront hire fee for a venue. All you have to do is pick a venue, gather a load of friends and you can hire a party space completely for free. So this way, you can spend your money on the bar instead!

It's always best to look at the menu prices first and then work out the average spend you'll be expected to hit (per person). Bear in mind that some people may drink less (unlikely I know...) but worth considering. Is the minimum spend attainable? Most places will also allow food pre-orders to count towards the minimum spends too, so getting some grub in is always recommended and will make the spend per head less of a worry.
