Kids aren’t the only ones who deserve to have fun birthday parties. As adults, we need fun, unique celebrations, too! But with so many venues specializing in children’s parties, it can be tough to find something right for you and your party guests. We’ve put together a list of things to look for in an adult birthday party venue in Chicago to help you along in this process.

Something competitive.

It’s fun to get a little competitive every now and then, especially to celebrate your birthday. Doing something competitive is a great way to get to really know your friends. Make it interesting by betting on winners, establishing a punishment for the loser, or getting a prize for the winner. Everyone will have fun and your party will stand out for a long time.

Something different.

Don’t just opt for your favorite restaurant (again) or a boring movie. Think outside the box and do something you’ve never done, or something that you and your friends don’t get to do often. You should feel celebrated and excited on your birthday, and choosing the same old boring ways to celebrate will simply fall short.

Something local.

Your guests don’t want to have to drive too far for your party (unless you’re providing the transportation!), so find something close to you that won’t be a hassle to your guests. They’ll thank you later, and they’ll be more likely to want to go back again (and that means they might even bring you!).

Something with plenty of options.

Do you find yourself worrying that your guests might not like your birthday party choice? If you choose a venue that offers plenty of activities, then you don’t have to worry about this! Choose something that offers food, fun activities, and areas for people to hang out and catch up if they’re not feeling like participating. Everyone will enjoy their time no matter their preferences.
