Best affordable 40th or 50th birthday party venues near Camden

Camden is certainly not short of great venues to hold an important birthday celebration, but just because it’s a special occasion, doesn’t mean we can all afford to break the bank. With that in mind, here is a selection of affordable venues that don’t skimp on the quality.



Hugo’s has an almost rustic warmth to it courtesy of the pew style seating and the use of wooden flooring and furnishings. This charm brings an intimate feeling to the venue and yet that’s not to say it is lacking in space. In fact, it can hold a surprisingly generous 80 for a formal seated reception or 120 if you would prefer a more laid back buffet style party, where guests can mingle more easily. Personal service is on offer to ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible, and you are invited to get in touch and discuss whatever hopes you have for your party so that they can help make it a reality.
