Reception Venues: Drinks Reception Restaurants & Cocktail Party Venues (52 Venues)

Drinks reception venues and cocktail party venues perfect for any standing or sitting event where drinks, and possibly food are required.

The Private Dining Directory lists all the best reception venues in Restaurants and catered venues, so you can quickly compare and book the best venue for your event!

The following reception venues can be booked solely for drink receptions, or for drink receptions followed by a meal or dinner at the same Restaurant/Venue.

If you're not interested in a formal sit down dinner, then many of the drink reception venues below also serve nibbles, so why not think about some canapés or buffet style finger food to go alongside your drink reception or cocktail party.

Why choose a Drinks Reception or Cocktail Party Venue from The Private Dining Directory?

The below venues offer some amazing spaces perfect for private cocktail parties and drink receptions, but most of them also offer catering.

This means if your drink reception or cocktail party is part of a day/evening of other activities such as a dinner, lunch, or breakfast pre or post drinks, you can do all at the same venue!

Browse below or find places to host a drink reception, or cocktail party near you by using the refine search tools on this page.
