From trendy bars to private gardens, there’s something for just about every size and theme, so you’re bound to stumble upon something you love.
Let’s start this list off strong with one of the most beautiful and unique LA party venues, The Houdini Estate. It’s actually been around since the 1900’s and has seen Harry Houdini work his magic IRL. The original mansion has been rebuilt after a fire in 1959, but it’s still got that vintage charm. It’s got plenty of nooks and crannies to explore and there are even overnight guest suites if you and some of your partygoers want to stay the night! As for space, it’s large enough to host a whopping 600 guests, so it’s great for massive milestone events.
On the hunt for a gorgeous, zen place to celebrate your birthday? Look no further than Santuari. This LA party venue has everything you could ever want for a luxurious outdoor event: boho chic furnishings, airy linens, and a stunning view. It’s large enough to fit from 25 to 75 guests, making it ideal for a small to a midsize celebration. P.S. you can also book its private room or the entire venue, if you want both indoor and outdoor spaces (and more room to party).
If your birthday falls on a Taco Tuesday (or you just really love Mexican food), Petty Cash Taqueria & Bar is where it’s at. While the mouthwatering food and cocktails are probably the star of this show, the restaurant also offers the perfect decor for a more laidback bash. Inside you’ll find graffiti-covered walls, high top tables, and industrial accents. As for size, it’s 3,700 square feet and can accommodate up to 30 guests. Oh, and if you don’t want to do a full buyout, you can always book the communal picnic tables or bar separately.
Tucked away in a 1937 Art Deco building you’ll find Ester’s Wine Shop & Bar. This eatery/bar hybrid is a great option for those who want to spend their birthday sipping on fine wine and eating delicious food. Its decor is chic, understated, and elegant, with timber floors, a central bar, and marble tables. It’s large enough for 150 guests, but can also accommodate smaller groups, if you’re looking for something more intimate.
Office Party is a minimalist and modern warehouse space that you can completely customize for your event. It boasts exposed wooden beams, glossy concrete floors, and a multi-level layout, giving your guests ample space to mix and mingle. It’s 5,000 square feet and can fit up to 250 guests. Thanks to its size, it’s also a great choice for weddings, fundraisers, and bar/bat mitzvahs.
If you love exposed bricks and beams, you’ll probably love The Infusery. It’s an industrial, rustic space that feels a bit cozier than most warehouses and loft venues in the city. Located in the Arts District, the venue has a 30-foot wooden bar, patchwork rugs, and bistro lighting, so you won’t have to go crazy with the decor rentals (it’s already pretty stunning). As for space, it covers 3,200 square feet and can accommodate between 20 and 100 guests.
Love that loft look but don’t want to go all out and book an entire warehouse for your birthday party? Work Bar LA will probably be right up your alley. It has industrial accents (think concrete flooring and exposed wooden beams) but is on the smaller side, coming in at only 900 square feet. It already has all the decor you could ask for, including leather sofas, theater signs, and vintage books, so you won’t need to pack it with balloons and streamers. As for guests, it has enough room for up to 50 people, so keep your invite list short and sweet.
Idle Hour is the perfect birthday party venue for anyone who wants to give their celebration a southern kick. The building is shaped like a whiskey barrel and the interior looks like an old-timey saloon (just a little more polished). Aside from a super cool interior, it also has an outdoor patio space where your guests can kick back if the weather is nice. It’s 1,274 square feet and can fit a total of 215 guests.
Hills Penthouse West Hollywood will make you feel like you’re part of the A-list on your birthday. This LA party venue features all-white decor, floor-to-ceiling windows, and industrial accents. Basically, it’s the loft you wish you could live in, but probably can’t afford to (if you can, I’m super jealous). It’s 5,000 square feet and can fit up to 150 guests.
