Planning out a birthday party can be a stressful and tedious process. It’s also easy to get stuck on what the right restaurant for your birthday party should be. But don’t worry, because in this article we go over everything you need to know about choosing the right birthday party restaurant and give you some ideas. Read on!
Before we get into what the best birthday party restaurant ideas are, here are a few tips to make the birthday party perfect:
Don’t leave your birthday party restaurant plans until the last minute
Our number one tip when booking a birthday party venue is to start with your plans early. This is because popular and high demand restaurants get booked up quickly. And this is especially true for private dining rooms or birthday packages. Booking a restaurant at the last minute can not only be stressful, but leave you with limited options with where to go and what type of seating is available.
The next biggest tip after planning your birthday restaurant early is to choose the right restaurant. Here’s what you need to consider when making your decision:
Take your guests into consideration and what they can or can’t eat
The biggest part of your experience at a restaurant is the food. That’s why it’s important to check out a restaurant’s menu to see what their food and drink options are. Has there been a certain dish or cuisine that you’ve been craving but haven’t had the chance to try yet? Your birthday is a great excuse to go and try something new and also share that experience with your birthday party guests.
And when looking at menus, have your guests in mind too. What kind of food do they like, what are their dietary requirements, do you want to introduce them to new food etc. Not only do you want to enjoy your birthday celebrations, but so do your guests, and having food they like or can eat is another key thing to consider. When you’re unsure of what food your guests like, it’s great to simply ask them!
Set yourself a budget before you choose your restaurant
Another important factor to choosing the right restaurant to have your birthday party in is your budget. It’s understandable to want to go to a restaurant that is more expensive for your birthday, but keep in mind that it shouldn’t put you under major financial stress. Start by considering the maximum amount you are willing to spend, and then consider how many people will be at your party.
Restaurants with more carefully decorated interiors add a special atmosphere to your birthday party
Do you want to have your birthday party at a relaxed and casual restaurant, or do you want something more special? Your birthday only happens once a year, so we recommend going somewhere that has a better atmosphere compared to your run of the mill restaurant that you eat at all the time. This can also depend on your budget, but there are options for restaurants with a great atmosphere but aren’t expensive.
Is there a specific place you had in mind to celebrate your restaurant? Choosing a restaurant that’s hard to get for you and your guests is not something we recommend. Making it hard to get to your destination makes it a hassle and some of your guests may not be able to make it to your party as a result.
Many restaurants are able to cater for birthday parties, with special birthday packages or activities. This includes birthday cakes, custom decorations, or even private rooms for you and your guests to celebrate in a more intimate setting. And if you’ve got a special birthday cake, you can even request the restaurant to store it until you’re ready to bring it out and cut it.
Now that you know what to keep in mind when choosing your birthday party restaurant, let’s get into our top picks:
