Tips For Hosting An Event At A Pub


If you're planning an adults-only event, consider hosting it at a late-night pub or bar. The fun venue will give the party a lighthearted feeling, as well as provide the ideal space for guests to mix and mingle, as they celebrate. 

A bar will make the ideal location for a variety of adults' special occasions or events, including birthday parties, holiday get-togethers, anniversary or college graduation celebrations and bridal or baby showers. To add to the whimsical vibe, you can hold the soiree at night. If you decide to go that route, look for a pub or bar that has late night hours, so that you can celebrate into the wee morning hours, if you desire. 

Not only will a bar venue provide the perfect backdrop for a night of fun and entertainment, it will also allow your friends and family members to party and catch up in a intimate space. It's also convenient, in that you won't have to go through an outside source, such as professional caterer, to provide drinks and food. 

Following are some tips for hosting your celebration at a late-night pub or bar:

1. Decide on a Theme

After you've chosen the ideal bar for your event, consider choosing a theme, which will give your party a coordinated feel. For instance, if you are a beach lover, go with a tropical-inspired theme. Keep this theme in mind, as you plan everything from the menu to the venue decor. You can also ask guests to come in costume if you'd like.

Some themed ideas include island-inspired cocktails and appetizers, such as mai tais, pina coladas, margaritas, daiquiris, grilled pineapple and shrimp skewers and chips and guacamole. When it comes to decorations, enhance the bar with string lights for a tiki hut feel, as well as vibrantly colored balloons and vases filled with fresh topical flowers. 

2. Pick a Menu

To save time and possibly even money, you can choose to have the bar cater the event for you. Options will typically be limited to casual meals and finger foods, including chicken strips, French fries, hamburgers and tacos. If you desire a more elaborate party menu, hiring an outside caterer is another idea. You'll also need to decide if you want to have an open bar or not.

3. Choose Your Event Space

If you're hosting a large party, renting the entire bar may be your best option. In this case, the bar will be closed to patrons, accommodating only your guests. For smaller get-togethers, you may be able to rent a private room within the bar, in which you can have toasts, open presents, or enjoy a meal or dessert.

Enjoying New Restaurants

As soon as I started traveling a lot for work, I realized that I was going to be eating out--a lot. Instead of just visiting the same old fast-food restaurants that I had grown up with, I decided that it would be great to explore exciting new restaurants. I started small, by going to little places that had earned high ratings, and then I worked my way up to some of the more fancy establishments in the area. It was really great to see what I was able to find, and I was super pleased to explore so many new kinds of foods. Check out this blog for tips on enjoying new restaurants.
