Bigger, Better, Birthday Parties happen at The Chapel Bar!


Bigger, Better, Birthday Parties happen at The Chapel Bar!

Our private hire venue in London has seen some breathtaking birthday parties over the years, from the beautiful, to the bizarre; and a whole load of everything else in between! As a result, this month we are committed to bringing you five of the best birthday party trends for 2019; along with five of our  glowing private hire venue birthday party reviews from our awesome guests. But you don’t need to stick to our list for inspiration. Above all else, it’s important to go with what you love. You can incorporate anything into a birthday party theme.


Music Genre Themed Birthday Parties

We love music and we love a party, but there is one thing we love more. Music and a party! Get yourself revved up for a rave, relax into an evening of R&B or rock out to your favourite band; we’ve hosted a bit of everything. This birthday party theme is limited only by your love of all things music. Turn the entertainment up a notch with a live band, a DJ or even both; and you’ll have a party that nobody will want to leave. Luckily, London has you covered with plenty of late licence venues; and our private hire venue is open till 3am, so you can party until your feet hurt. Rock on!

“From my initial email contact to everything on the night of the party, this was an excellent experience. The evening ran like clockwork and the bar and door staff were very friendly. Highly recommend.” – Jane, Tripadvisor.


‘Big Childrens Birthday’ Birthday Parties

Sometimes it seems like it was only yesterday when we were all running around acting like we didn’t have a care in the world. Which is probably why the children’s birthday party theme is always near the top of the list for adult birthday parties. Back to basics party food, like ice cream and jelly are great to really help us feel that nostalgia; and bigger, better, sillier party games never go out of fashion. Giant Jenga, Connect 4 and Chess like to make an appearance. Of course, we like to put an adult spin on things and up the ante with some birthday game challenges and forfeits. Well, why not?!

“I had my 40th birthday at the Chapel Bar, it was a night to remember for all the right reasons. Staff are highly professional, ask all the right questions from the outset so the evening ran seamlessly. Great location, great value, I would highly recommend!! I wish I could do it all over again :-)” – Hannah, Google Business.


The ‘Sporting Stars’ Birthday Parties

This birthday party is perfect for sports fans of all shapes and sizes. Whether your birthday party theme is aimed at the hardcore football fans, tennis stars throughout the ages or a true baseball bonanza, this one is for you. Encourage all things fandom with sporting decorations to match, or simply  let your guests show off their own favourite sports stars with an open ended sports theme dress code. We love a ‘through the ages’ sporting greats party. Whichever way you go, this party will give you and your guests a great night and have everyone talking.

“A quality service. All my guests commented positively on the venue, the friendly staff and the food. Everyone had a great time. A professional establishment before, during and after my event.” – Alan, Google Business.


Glitz and Glamour Birthday Parties

London is known for it’s nightlife and what better way to enjoy it than with a bit of glamour? Black tie, cocktail dresses, the works. You could even add an element of mystery by throwing an epic masquerade ball. Probably the most enduring of all party themes, but who doesn’t love a bit of glam. Incorporate sequins and glitter and certainly everything that twinkles. Add a luxurious dinner menu and the sparkle of champagne and your evening will be complete.

“I had my birthday party at The Chapel Bar and it was definitely the best party I’ve ever had. The venue was perfect , the bar area is lovely and the dancefloor is brilliant… I would highly recommend the venue for parties and lots of my friends were also really impressed . I loved it !”Helen, Tripadvisor.


The Heroes and Villains Birthday Parties

Another party theme where guests can choose to embody current or historical figures and which will get everyone into the swing of things. Talking of swinging, Spiderman will most likely make multiple appearances. As one of the Marvel superhero greats, you won’t see anyone complaining. This birthday party theme is by no means limited to comic book heroes and villains, rather, you can choose to take inspiration from anywhere. Heroes and Villains is truly one of the all time fave party themes for all ages and all personalities.

“Overall – I give this place 5 star + on service, professionalism, and location…so highly recommended if you are looking to host an event and want quality service from start to end!” – Royston, Google Business.

Most importantly, remember that the birthday party theme needs to suit the individual, so think about what will make them happy and run with it. Unicorns, Football fanatics, Disco Divas, all things American or a good old fashioned casual knees up; create the perfect party so that they can have the night of their lives. Finally, birthday party ideas can become birthday party successes with just a little forward planning. So get planning for the best parties London has seen.

Our reviews

What a great night. Everything went brill! Your staff were superb. Completely unobtrusive but they managed to be very attentive at the same time. The food was great and the drinks flowed. Having the license for the balcony until 1 am was amazing. Everyone commented on what a great venue we had chosen so I can't recommend it is highly enough. Once again, many, many thanks.

Cheryl Walton

Great Success. Very helpful staff, very friendly security (this isn't very common) and everyone was really accommodating. I would highly recommend.

Chris Topper

We had our Wedding Reception at the Chapel Bar; what a fantastic night. The food was absolutely delicious with plenty for everyone, the bar and door staff were absolutely wonderful and the venue brilliant. We have received loads of excellent feedback about the venue, food and staff. Thank you so much for making our night such a memorable experience.
