A birthday is something to celebrate, whether it’s a 1st or a 100th. The Los Angeles area offers many venues, but the trick is to find a location that’s exciting and different and that will make the event memorable for everyone involved. You don’t have to search any further than these very special places:
1. A Pull-Out-All-the-Stops Bash for a Crowd
For celebrating a major milestone birthday and inviting everyone you know, the Glenoaks Ballroom in Glendale can accommodate up to 450 people in a spacious 4,500 square feet extravagantly appointed with classic architecture, handcrafted woodwork, high ceilings, imported marble, mirrored walls, and a 60-foot crystal chandelier that will take your event to the next level of elegance. This sophisticated ballroom imparts the Hollywood style of yesteryear from the moment your guests step into the red-carpeted entry.
The Glenoaks’ open floor plan allows for your choice of seating options on both sides of the gleaming white dance floor — comfortable cocktail lounge on one side and dining tables on the other, for example — and the celebrant and special guests can take their places at the head of the room where they will be seated in front of a crystal-encrusted backdrop. The Glenoaks Ballroom also offers a generous stage for musical and other entertainment. If you wish, the room can be customized with an alternate dance floor and your choice of materials to drape the walls to fit your personal design scheme.
The Glenoaks Ballroom features full audiovisual capabilities, Wi-Fi, and state-of-the art lighting that can be tailored to suit the mood as your party progresses from cocktails, through dinner, and on to dancing until the wee hours.
2. A Party That Feels Like a Movie Premiere
Le Foyer Lounge in NoHo offers an ambiance that is pure Old Hollywood, with lavish ornamental details, tiled stone walls, spectacular carved arches, and a gently bubbling fountain. Le Foyer Lounge accommodates up to 70 guests and can be arranged with round dining tables or one long table down the center of the room. The cozy bar can be set up for cocktails, or you can offer tray passed service. The front of the room offers space for a stage if you like, the ideal spot for live music or a DJ.
3. A Sophisticated Soiree
The Galleria Lounge in Glendale is another ideal space for a smaller gathering to celebrate in style. Classic sophistication is the keynote, with seating for up to 64 guests at square tables designed for easy conversation.
Despite its small size, careful attention has been paid to every detail, with detailed pale ivory walls, graceful sconces providing gentle lighting, and a burnished wood floor that complements any color scheme you choose for linens and flowers. There’s even a dedicated dance floor and space for a musical combo or DJ.
4. A Birthday Party for the Younger Set
The Brandview Patio in Glendale is just the spot to celebrate under the sun in more contemporary, casual style and with plenty of room for the kids to have fun. This spacious outdoor deck accommodates up to 100 guests and can be arranged to suit whatever you have in mind. Your plans can include buffet or plated service at round tables, cozy lounge seating, and even a bar set up to dispense ice cream sundaes. The patio’s fountains add soft ambiance to the background, but the sky is literally the limit for adding musical or other entertainment. Of course the Brandview Patio is also available for more grown-up birthday parties, whether daytime or beneath the nighttime stars.
