A birthday, a wedding reception, a stag party – whatever event you name, it will always need a good venue. For quite some time, you’d be searching for the perfect place where you and your loved ones could get together. But, with the number of party venues Brisbane is home to, it gets confusing which one is best for the occasion you’re planning.
So, to save you the stress, here’s what to look for in each venue to shorten your list of choices:
The whole occasion would be easier to organise if you won’t do the cooking, so it helps to find a venue that has a good menu. Make sure that the grub suits the theme and the feel of the event. At the very least, look for a caterer that serves exceptional food.
Prioritise the logistics of the venue when looking for one. It is important that you know the capacity of the venue, because you would want something that’s neither too large nor too confined. Consequently, take a look at the facilities available at the venue. Everything should be spot-on and fully functional, from the stage lights to the sound system. You might want to ask the place’s manager to give you a tour and orient you with the area’s logistics to know whether or not the location’s a perfect fit.
This perhaps is the most important: how easy is it for your guests to reach the venue? Is it accessible both through a private car and through public transport? From the venue, how convenient is it to hail a cab and head home? These questions need good answers; otherwise your venue isn’t that good. The location is something you should always pay attention to when organising a cocktail party or any event.
Your event is only as good as its venue. Get it right with the location and you can get it right with everything else. Keep these three elements in mind to ensure you’re not booking the wrong place.
