Planning a private dining event

Private dinners don’t have to be complicated events, but there’s still plenty to think about when you’re the organiser. Your guest list and budget will influence your choice of venue, so have a think in advance about how many people you’d like to invite. Not all private dinners are funded entirely by the organiser, but if it’s a corporate event that is the norm so it might be worth warning your guests if it isn’t the case.


Some - but not all - restaurants are able to close to the public and hire out their entire space privately. If this is a non-negotiable for you and you have a big guest list, it might be worth thinking about finding a dry hire or even gala venue.


For most private dinners, an exclusive room is big enough, but check out our tips for what to remember when hosting the perfect private dinner party:


Venue type

You’ve got your budget and your guest list - so now you need to pick your venue. Have a think about the space that will not only suit the size of your private dinner party, but also the style. Would a more laid back pub or bar be appropriate with sharing platters, or are you looking for a luxury sit-down meal with a view of the city? You’d be surprised by the number of different styles of venue that offer private dining, so have a think about what you’d like before you start looking around.


Minimum spend

Let’s look at your budget again - some venues charge a hire fee for their space on top of the cost of the food and drink. If you’re looking to save money, you might want to consider a minimum spend venue, but the more luxury or high-end spaces don’t usually offer this as an option.


Choosing a menu

Catering to lots of different dietary requirements can be tricky, especially if you’ve got a big guest list and a limited budget! If you’re asking for RSVPs, use it as an opportunity for your guests to submit their dietary needs so you’ll know exactly how to cater for everyone. If you have more of an open guest list, the primary requirements you’ll need to consider are: vegans and vegetarians; allergies and intolerances (gluten and lactose are the most common); and faith-based diets such as halal and kosher.


Alcohol selection

You’ll also want to think about the drinks available for your guests. Using alcohol calculators can give you an idea of how much booze to bring in if you’re self-catering, but don’t forget your non-drinkers. Depending on the event some of your guests may bring their children, so it’s good to have some kid-friendly options on hand too.
