Planning the perfect private dining party is far from a walk in the park, but it’s definitely a lot of fun. Whether you’re organising an afternoon tea in a leafy garden courtyard or a large corporate party, the devil is most definitely in the details. Tips and tricks for hiring a private dining room or restaurant:
Writing a guest list will help you create a budget and find the right-sized venue (a small private dining room for 20 people, an entire restaurant for a large group, etc.)
Think outside the box. You no longer need to limit yourself to traditional restaurants and hotels, although they are the obvious and most straightforward option, be creative and you will find lots of alternative options such as loft spaces, outdoor terraces, galleries, studios, theatres and pop up restaurants.
Think about the type of space that would best suit your event. What vibe are you trying to create? Rustic & family or high-end luxe?
Would you want to use an external catering or restaurant? Shortlist venues that offer the style of food you’d like at your event. Are you interested in locally sourced, field to fork fare or more traditional options; Italian, British, Nordic, fusion, etc.
Don’t forget to ask your guests for dietary requirements in advance of the event. Find out if you can do a menu tasting and whether the in-house catering team can accommodate special dietary requirements (halal, kosher, gluten-free, vegan, etc.)
Make sure you know what is and isn’t included in your booking (ask about what furniture and equipment you can use, as well as who’ll provide the linen, tableware and service staff). Some venues can also have hidden fees and charges such as corkage, service and waste disposal fees, cake-cutting fee, late licence fee, etc.) and if VAT is included.
Find out if there are any vendor restrictions (some venues may have noise or decor restrictions, or penalise you if the clean up is unsatisfactory)
Think about any special requirements you have (i.e. do you need a piano, AV equipment, a stage?). Consider whether you need a rain plan (this is essential if you intend to hold your private dining event outdoors).
