If you are up for a nice party in Berlin, you can obviously visit a party in one of the many clubs. But sometimes you a private party with your own crew is more fun than a public party. Or maybe you have something to celebrate (e.g. birthday) and don’t want to celebrate at home. If you want to organise your own party and are still looking for a party-room for rent in Berlin, this blogpost will help you out.
Organise your own (birthday) party
It does not really matter if it’s a birthday-party or if you have something else to celebrate: Renting a party-room and going mad with your friends is always a great idea. You can make sure the music suits you and your friends and you can choose a theme and ask everyone to dress up (if you like). We have been organising a party for our friends for more than 5 years in a row now and it has always been a success.
Tips for organising your own party in Berlin
If you are planning to organise your own party in Berlin, the following tips might be helpful:
- Make sure the party-room you rent is not too big, it needs to feel crowded enough to be successful.
- Ask the venue if they can create a signature cocktail for you and your friends, choose one everyone likes
- Allow people to hand in songs which will be played during the night.
- If your people are up for it, choose a theme. It will make the night more special.
- Instead of asking people to pay entrance, just ask them to drink enough so the minimum turnover is reached. You might even get a discount on the rental costs if you make enough turnover
- If the party is over, recommend your guest with some awesome (after) parties in Berlin
