The Houdini Estate, 2400 Laurel Canyon Blvd, Los Angeles

Let’s start this list off strong with one of the most beautiful and unique birthday party venues in Los Angeles, The Houdini Estate. It’s actually been around since the 1900s 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.

As for space, it’s large enough to host a whopping 600 guests, so it’s great for massive special events.

If your birthday falls on a Taco Tuesday (or you just really love Mexican food), Petty Cash Taqueria & Bar is where it’s at.

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.
