Below are some of the fine details that you need to consider so everyone (including yourself) can focus on having an awesome time.

The Venues

You might decide to hold your party over more than one venue. For example, you might have dinner at a theatre restaurant then head out to a bar or club. Itís always a good idea to make a booking where possible to avoid disappointment on the night.


This is an aspect that is often forgotten about. How will you and your guests get to your venue? At the end of your night, how will you get home/to your accommodation?


If you plan on partying in a venue that is far from home, it might be best to consider getting accommodation for the night. In many cases it can work out cheaper than transport and allows you and your guests to party for longer! If you make a group booking for you and your guests, you will also often receive a cheap price per room.
