03 Dec How Much Does it Cost to Rent a Venue for a Private Party?
Whether you’re celebrating a holiday, birthday, anniversary, or other milestone event, parties are a great way to bring family and friends together. But if you’re gathering a large crowd, you may not have the space—or patience—to host in your home. Choosing a specialized event venue for your party not only relieves you of the burden of cooking, cleaning, and handling all the details, but it can also elevate your party to a truly awe-inspiring event.
Your first concern about booking an event venue is probably the cost, but event space rentals might be more cost-effective than you think if you consider the entire package. Here’s what you need to know about event venue rentals, costs and more:
Benefits of renting an event venue
For many people, the idea of partygoers eating, drinking and dancing in their home is the source of substantial anxiety. As a host, you’re responsible for food, drinks, decorations, and all the little details necessary for a party to run smoothly. If you choose an all-inclusive event venue, most of the work is done for you. Relief from stress and anxiety isn’t the only benefit of hosting your party at a separate venue: event spaces provide tables, chairs and a dancefloor, and most importantly, clean up.
Many event venues, like Factory of Dreams Hall North Park/San Diego, also offer concierge services to help you plan the event and handle all the details during the party so you can relax and have fun instead.
How to choose an event venue
The first consideration when choosing an event venue is the size of your party. The spaces available to accommodate a few dozen attendees will vary greatly from spaces built to host a hundred or more, and there’s no point paying for extra space you won’t need.
You should also decide how many added services you want—many venues handle not only the set-up and decorations, but also catering, bartending, DJ services, a photographer, and more. An all-inclusive event package might seem more expensive at first, but hiring separate vendors will likely add up to much more.
Cost of renting an event venue
Not all event venues charge the same way. Some charge by the hour, while those that provide catering and bartending services typically have a minimum food/drink tab. All-inclusive event spaces usually charge for packages based on the estimated number of attendees, with optional add-ons like DJs, photo booths, bar services and more. Of course costs will vary depending on the venue, but as a general guideline most event space rentals start at around $1,000-$2,000.
