    How to Find an Awesome Sydney Party Venue

    Sydney is a treasure trove of amazing restaurants, waterfront event spaces, and alfresco party spots. It’s no wonder this city always feels abuzz with energy. 

    Sydney’s hotel ballrooms are great for those wild school formals and Bat or Bar Mitzvahs. Meanwhile, there are many charming waterfront cottages with verandahs that are just perfect for a laidback engagement party or hen party brunch. In this city, there’s something for every party style.

    Here are some tips for finding your Sydney party venue, straight from our Venue Finders.

    Venue Finder Tip No. 1: Style it Up!

    The difference between a good party and an awesome one is all in the ambience. 

    Will your Sydney birthday party guests be into a relaxed outdoor atmosphere with craft cocktails and delicious food? If that’s your vibe, a party space with Sydney Harbour views will be right up your alley.

    If you’re all about the late-night packed dancefloor, a Sydney ballroom venue might be your best bet, as you can party late and have the digs all to yourselves. 

    If your style is prim and proper, afternoon tea at The Langham Sydney or Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney could be a fabulous local birthday party option for you and your gal pals.

    Venue Finder Tip No. 2: Sort Out Accommodation Early

    Sydney hotels book far in advance. While there are many options available across the city, if you’re planning a party and many guests are travelling to attend, it’s common courtesy to secure a block of hotel rooms for those guests. 

    Our Venue Finders have visited the many luxury five-star hotels in Sydney as well as boutique hotels in Bondi Beach, Double Bay, and beyond, and they’re happy to talk you through your options.

    Venue Finder Tip No. 3: Have a Plan for Your Party Guests’ Arrival and Departure

    • Sydney Metro, buses, ferries, light rail, taxis, and rideshares are all great options for your party guests. 
    • Many hosts also offer party buses depending on the location and accessibility of their Sydney party.
    • Parking in the city centre is limited, but many Sydney party venues offer valet parking or parking amenities if this is a priority for your guests.

    It depends what kind of party you’re throwing and the atmosphere you’d like to create. 

    Sometimes we recommend alfresco party venues like Sergeants’ Mess, other times we’ll go with something more formal like The Langham Sydney or Sofitel Sydney Wentworth

    Sydney garden party venues like the Royal Botanic Garden and Domain are a big hit for daytime events like engagement parties and bridal showers, while local restaurants like Kittyhawk and Hyde Hacienda make fabulous party spots for an evening crowd.

    Every venue has a different way of setting its pricing. Most restaurants and party venues will set a minimum price for food and beverage. Some Sydney party venues also require a minimum guest count or a fee to hire the venue space.
