Party venues can be difficult to find. Whether it’s for a group of friends or for your office trip away, you’ve been given the duty of finding the best venue to keep everyone happy. It’s a big ask, but if you get it right, you’ll definitely be the top best friend/co-worker/sibling for a good few weeks.
Quayside Exchange in Sunderland
If you want to be where the party is at, Quayside Exchange in Sunderland is your only option. They cater to all kinds of events, including private parties and proms.
What makes this venue even more remarkable is the fact that it’s in a Grade II building. The Grand Room is their larger space, with huge Georgian windows offering amazing views of the River Wear. With two private bars in the suite, this one would be great for office parties or larger celebrations.
However, The Vaulted Suite is perfect for any low-key gatherings. Plus, you can head out to the heated terrace for some peace and riverside views.
For a space where you can party hard, check out The Tempest Bar. It was refurbished in 2017, so it has a fantastic, modern feel and so many contemporary features. From hog roasts to DJ hire, you’re sure to get your party off on the right foot here!
