It doesn’t matter how young or old you are, having a birthday party in the NYC is the best thing ever. NYC is the most happening and alive city on the planet. This allows you a variety of options for a birthday party.
This is where you will find some of the swankiest hotels, the most happening nightclubs, exquisite restaurants, cultural venues, parks and play spaces. If you want to do it, chances are there is some place in New York City that offers the experience. Keep reading as we explore birthday party venues for the young and the young at heart.
Let’s start this tour with the 21 and over crowd:
289 Tenth Ave., New York, NY 10001
nr. 26th St
If you want a totally new experience then this is the place to be. This is not your ordinary club, it is an ode to go-go dancing, LEDs and the finest champagnes money can buy. The former meatpacking plant is now thumping to the sounds of trance and house music.
This is the place where you will find great drinks like the Upper Westside, a cocktail made from Woodford Reserve and Carpano Antica and the concoction comprised of Jack Daniels, Angostura and apple cider known affectionately as the Suite 16. There is a catwalk that wraps around the complete circumference and on it you will be amazed by the flamethrowers, live dancers and other performance artists. You can request a more intimate area for your birthday celebration away from the crush of the crowd.
Party on a Bus For Tweens And Teens:
Tweens and Teens, boy or girl, are the most finicky people to plan for. This is the age of peer pressure and looking cool. This is the age where parents are a nuisance and no one wants their friends to see them being treated like babies. The days of the Princess and Pirates are over unless they are Princess Katana from Mortal Kombat or the Dreaded Captain Jack from the pirates of the Caribbean.
For these times try the novel approach, imagine the joy your child will feel when they are able to roll up to their friends homes and bring them aboard a party bus. They can have the entire party on board as they drive through this amazing city. These buses are outfitted with flat screen televisions, sound systems and also a red carpet service available. You can even order buses with walls and ceilings that change colors.
Loop of the Loom

Little girls are a joy and there’s nothing your little one will like better than taking their friends to a place of wonder where they can learn something new. The venue is the only place in NYC where you can take classes in the Zen method of weaving known as Saori.
According to their website:
“SAORI is a contemporary hand weaving program founded by Misao Jo (1913- , Japan)in 1969. She started weaving when she was 57 years old and created her own loom and style, free from the traditional concept and rules of weaving. She named her weaving style ‘SAORI’ in which anyone can express oneself freely regardless of age, gender, disability or intellectual aptitude. In SAORI, people can enjoy hand weaving as an art form not only as a hand craft.”
This is where art meets crafts. This is a great place for a gathering of your daughters closest friends. The price is $350.00 for 6 people and $35.00 per person after that. The party is limited to 12 people. The eating portion of the day can be before or after the event since no food is allowed on the premises. The best part is the kids get to keep what they make.
Another favorite of girls is playing dress up. Get coiffed has the perfect party plan for the little princess. These hairstylists will come to your home or wherever the party is taking place. They have two party themes to choose from.
Rocker Girl Party:
