5 Top Venues For A 30th Birthday Party

If your 30th is approaching, it's the perfect excuse for having a big old birthday bash in our books! To help you celebrate this landmark occasion, we’ve made things easier with our list of five top venues to celebrate your 30th birthday.

From rooftop bars, ping pong and karaoke, to fancy drinks and luxurious dining, Hire Space has venues for all tastes - here's a whirlwind tour of 5 of our favourites!

1. The Little Scarlet Door

If your own flat's leaning on the shabby side of "shabby-chic", it might be an idea to upgrade for the night - and you've come to the right place! The Little Scarlet Door in Soho is like stepping into the coolest house party you've never been to—until now.

This venue takes the concept of a New York loft and gives it a distinctly British twist, complete with homely quirks that make for a warm and inviting party atmosphere. Spread over two floors, you've got the open-plan living room and kitchen on one level, and the Basement Studio, complete with a long bar, vault, and a games area featuring a Nintendo 64 for a hit of nostalgia. It's the perfect spot for a 30th birthday party that's both sophisticated and playfully retro (suitably far removed from your own outdated furniture!).

Location: Soho

Capacity: 243 reception

2. Bounce Farringdon

Bounce Farringdon takes the prize - or should we say, the paddle - for an unconventional 30th birthday party venue. The Jaques Room, with its vibrant atmosphere, is a playground for adults, offering not just ping pong tables but also a state-of-the-art karaoke system for those who want to sing their hearts out - and who doesn't want to belt out the tunes on their birthday?!

It's a place where you can unleash your inner child (30 going on 13?) and create memories that are as lively as your ping pong competition is fierce!

Location: Farringdon

Capacity: 120 standing

3. NT's Loft

Impressing friends is always high on the list of priorities when organising a birthday party and when marking the big 3 and 0, you’ve got to find a place that’s cool and trendy. Fortunately, it doesn’t come much trendier than East London, and it certainly doesn’t come any cooler than the rooftop terrace at NT's Loft.

The roof terrace is the ultimate in cool, relaxed entertaining, with panoramic views across East London's skyline - and you've also got the relaxed, New York-style loft to keep guests mingling inside in case of inclement weather...

Location: London Fields

Capacity: 350 standing

5. Apples and Pears Cocktail Bar

Bringing together a wonderful vintage upstairs bar and the über cool, vaulted brick ceilings of its downstairs bar space, the Apples and Pears Cocktail Bar provides a tremendous venue to celebrate your 30th birthday.

Located on Osborn Street, just off Brick Lane, this venue holds a special spot on the East End bar scene. Catering can be tailor made to suit requirements, ranging from canapé receptions to buffets. The team at Apples and Pears offers both single bar and whole venue hire, meaning you can make your birthday celebrations as small or as grand as you see fit. Tired from all the attention that comes with being 30? Why not sneak away to a corner of their secret beer garden for a few minutes of respite?!

Capacity: 70 standing
