40th Birthday Party Venue - Please Help

9 posts in this topic

I am in the process of arranging a surprise 40th Birthday get-together for my DHs friends and work colleagues in Abu Dhabi late September.

I have to cater for Emiratis, Locals, Brits, Kiwis etc. As a result I am coming up a bit short venue wise! Your traditional hotel buffets are just too expensive in most cases or a bit bland, I have saved but my non-working pockets are just not deep enough to foot the cost of these (well it seems unfair to give the birthday boy the bill at the end of the night). Has anyone used a good, may I dare ask value for money venue?

Venue aside, home is an option. Does anyone know of companies that cater for home held functions? I'd need to hire outside furniture, maybe a misting system just in case it is still too hot, and possibly help with food.

I am looking to cater for approx 30-50 people. Does anyone have any ideas

You could try The Club, they seem to be very reasonable. I went to a party recently and they did all the catering, only canapes and shwarmas but I am sure they could provide a small menu or the tables and chairs you need. They were only there 3 hours but did a fab job and were not expensive from what I heard.

This is the link to the Club's party food info.

I have really enjoyed parties on the club beach. I'm not sure if it's still the same,but they did have a thing where if you spent 1500 dhs on food and drink, they wouldn't charge for the venue. I went to a couple where we had canapes and shwarma, but paid for our own drinks. You could do this or give everyone a glass of juice or wine - don't know if your budget would run to this. I've also been to canape parties in peoples' house where the club catered. I particularly enjoyed the dessert fingers.

Hope you get sorted.

The One also do some catering and I have hosted an Abu Dhabi Mums' social where the Nihal Indian restaurant catered - that was really nice and quite inexpensive, but you need to stress that you want the food to be mild! I'm not sure if they could provide any furniture.
