How to find the ideal function venue near Fourways for your cocktail party!

As an experienced function venue near Fourways, we know exactly what makes a cocktail party stand out. These events have everything in common with a five-star dish; you can have all the right ingredients, but without the correct spices to jazz up, the flavour and poor presentation style, you’ll just end up with an unattractive and tasteless plate of food. Likewise, a good cocktail party consists of an interesting theme, a delectable snack menu and jazzy concoctions for cocktails to suit the theme but need the right venue in order to set it all off.

Here are some top tips on finding the perfect venue:

  • Choose the theme of your party. Once this is settled, it is much easier to find the function venue that will be the perfect match for your theme. Themes can be based on culture, geography and events, from Beach Party and Pretty in Pink to Wimbledon, the World Cup Soccer and even A Night in Paris!
  • Consider venues that relate to your theme. Now that you have a theme, you know what to look for in a venue. For example, a Safari themed event would look incredible set in the bush, while A Night in Paris will be incredible set in a venue that overlooks a rose garden.
  • Once you have narrowed down possible venues, phone them to enquire about the practical needs for your party and see if it will be an easy commute for your guests. Ask about their rental fees, accessibility and capacity. Ask about extras that you might possibly need, for example, overnight accommodation, as well as other facilities such as the kitchen, bathrooms etc.
  • Before making your final booking, consult your guest list. Make sure that the venue is wheelchair accessible if you have any older or disabled guests and that they are able to cater for any dietary requirements that your guests have.
