At Beachside Nelson, we’re well known for our fabulous conferencing and event spaces. But did you know that we also host private parties? As Christmas approaches, we know many of you will be looking for party venues for a festive get-together. So, in this article, we thought we’d share some tips on choosing your perfect party space!
Party Venues – Choosing the perfect space?
Size Matters 😉:
We’re not being cheeky here (well, we are a bit), but when choosing your party venue, consider whether the space size is appropriate for your guest numbers and the type of party you’re throwing. You don’t want people to feel cramped. But similarly, nobody wants to be at a party where the room looks empty. If you’ve got a band playing or a disco, you’ll need space for dancing, as well as eating and mingling! At Beachside, our rooms are incredibly versatile and can be set up for various private functions and parties.
Food… A Flavoursome Focal Point:
Serving food at parties is deeply rooted in cultural, social, and historical practices. A good spread shows generosity, but it also contributes to the celebratory feeling of the festivities. Our on-site caterer, Gourmet Catering, has been at the forefront of the Nelson hospitality business for many years. Owner Carol Shirley has a passion for food and knows its importance in making your event successful.
No matter your event size, we offer a full catering service. We have a selection of price-per-head menus for you, including our famous Grazing Tables. Alternatively, we can provide a bespoke menu planning service.
Choose a party venue provider with the flexibility to personalise the space with decorations to match your party’s theme. At Beachside, we’ll work with you to ensure your room is decorated as you’d like. You can bring your pinatas! Or we can help you source decorations or find third-party service providers to deck the halls completely!
Parking… The Party Perk:
Choosing a convenient location with ample parking space or easy accessibility for guests ensures a warm welcome. Nobody wants to park some way down the road and trek back to your event in their heels and party dresses! We have plenty of on-site parking for your guests arriving by car. We’re just a ten-minute drive from the CBD, so taxis are also cost-effective.
Teamwork makes the perfect party:
Choosing your venue doesn’t just boil down to the practicality of space. It’s essential to be confident that you have a helpful, professional team on board who can assist with planning, setting up, and addressing any concerns during the event. Our front-of-house superstar, Ellie, ensures parties and events run seamlessly at Beachside.
