Are you planning on hosting a party or a private family get together this season? Well, when planning a party, deciding on the venue has got to be THE most important factor, which then goes on to affect a lot of things AKA the ambience, food, etc. that you are going to present to your guests. It’s basically one of the most integral factors, which could make or break your party. You need to select a venue that has the right feel to it, enough space for your guests and fit your budget. Nowadays, with the wide array of options available, you could host a successful party anywhere and everywhere.

However, if you have a rooftop venue in mind, we could be a bit of a help to you. Rooftop seating offers your guests an appealing feature and helps to make up a fun, beautiful experience for them. It’s perfect to host private parties; and places which have both an indoor seating area as well as an added rooftop section, are a complete hit. So, if you are thinking of throwing your wife a lavish, surprise birthday party, or a fun family get together for your parent’s anniversary, you could book one of such private function venues in Auckland. Tom Tom offers you such a perfect venue, along with drinks, great food, lively music and what not. They are more than happy to be serving you and your guests, all year around, no matter what the occasion might be.

Tips for hosting a rooftop event

With the temperatures soaring up, it’s the perfect warm weather to host a party on a scenic rooftop. From office dinner parties to wedding receptions, and anything in between, a venue having a rooftop bar in Auckland is going to offer you a stunning view of the city, and wind through your hair. But, with factors like potential access problems and moody weather, you need to make sure that your venue is well prepared to take what comes its way. As a party host, or even a rooftop restaurant owner, you need to make sure that all of your guests are enjoying their hearts out. So, let’s take a look at the essential hacks for your rooftop soiree.

  • Mindful of weather: So, whenever you are dealing with rooftop venues, you need to be very careful with the weather. Great weather helps a lot. You should keep in mind the context of unpredictable winds, with factors like backup coverings and marquee, elastic tablecloths, weather resistant and portable furniture. Also, during summer events, starting your event a bit late, like the time of sunset and after that, will help to keep the party from going on uninterrupted (and the guests remaining unscathed by the heat!).
  • Seasonal menu: Also, when you are planning the menu of your party, you should keep the season in mind. Like for example, in summertime parties, you can never go wrong with fruit-based appetizers, cool fresh cocktails (or various kinds of juices for those heavenly people!), and even mini sweet treats like ice cream cones and popsicles.
  • Keep in mind the numbers: You also need to keep a track of all your party guests while deciding on the venue. For example, you need to pay attention to the modes of access, the stairs, the maximum number of people the elevator can hold etc. This will help you to manage the situation better when you have got most of your guests arriving at the same time.
  • Make guests comfortable: Most of the time, when people choose rooftop venues, it’s to escape from the hustle bustle of the surface level and to enjoy the view. So, it’s best to leave your guests to explore and take their own time, before rushing them. Give them time to enjoy with their near and dear ones, soak it all in, and Instagram all their favourite moments.

So, these were some of the main tips that you can put to use to help your rooftop party kick off without a hitch. With these in order, your guests are bound to have a blast of a time. Trust us—it’s never too late (or early!) to start planning a party, and a rooftop one at that.
