Sit back, relax and have a pint.
Pubs may be one of the most available types of spaces to rent out without needing to book too far in advance. However, if you’re looking to plan a holiday-specific party for something like St. Patrick’s Day or Mardi Gras, you may be looking at a more expensive hourly rate due to high demand. Ask the manager if they offer any party packages, like wristbands that grant access to an open bar, or large-order food discounts if they have a kitchen.
Keep in mind you’ll likely be sharing the space with people outside your guest list—most pubs have rooms that can be rented out for private events or they can designate an area for your party, but they usually won’t shut down to the public completely without a pretty penny.
