10 Awesome Options for your Next Birthday Bash

Party time!

Grab your BFFs and put on your Sunday best. Your special day only comes around once a year, and we want to make sure you do it right! The options are endless – from unleashing your inner Picasso, to living out your rock star fantasy or taking a spa getaway, here is our list of 10 places that will make your special day one for the books!

Play Games

Have an inkling for Bocce ball, shuffleboard and cocktails? Then bring your party to Track and Field, a lawn games bar located in Little Italy. Bring out your competitiveness and challenge your friends to these old school games. You can reserve ahead or take your chances as a walk-in.

Have an Art Attack

Take your party crew to Paint Lounge and express your inner Michelangelo. You can go freestyle, or be led by a pro, either way getting messy and experimenting with colours and shapes has never been so fun. This will remind you of high school art class, but this time you’re allowed to BYOB 😉

Be a Rock God

What better way to celebrate becoming one year older than living out your rock & roll fantasies! Good Enough Karaoke is your chance to be the frontman (or frontwoman) of a rock band as you choose from over 200 songs to perform. You and your pals are guaranteed to have a blast collectively losing your voices and showing off your inner Steven Tyler!

Get Fresh

If you’re celebrating a milestone this year, why not spoil yourself with a day of pampering? Enjoy the outdoors and let your body melt into the hot baths at the Scandinavian Spa, located at Blue Mountain. Afterwards, you can take a hike, visit the waterfalls or enjoy some vino while gazing over the beautiful scenery.

Party Down

The restaurant options in the city are endless. For a hip & cool birthday dinner check out the Pacific Junction Hotel. Located on King Street East and open till 2 a.m. every day, your taste buds will be on high alert with options like poutine spring rolls, crispy buffalo tofu and a $35 Junction Margarita Bowl! Celebrate with your friends and make some new ones too at PJH.

Geek Out

Have a Mario Party party, or battle your buds to a game of Street Fighter at Power Up Game Bar. For a futuristic spin with a nostalgic feel this is a great way to celebrate getting older. There are a variety of games and consoles to choose from, shareable dishes, custom created cocktails and locally brewed craft beers. It will be a blast from the past with your best buds.

Get Down with Motown

If you’re a Motown music lover then you have got to check out The Orbit Room. More specifically, you have to see band Ride the Tiger. You will sing, you will dance and if you’re lucky enough, you might even get a Happy Birthday serenade by the band. The Orbit Room is a hot little music club with the best live soul, blues and rock & roll perfect for your next birthday bash.

Throw a Tea Party

For the party folk not into the typical loud-music-and- boozy-style of celebrating, Bampot House of Tea is a great option for you. Reserve a private space, play board games and even throw an impromptu jam session, as Bampot is equipped with instruments, amps and mics.
Go ahead; try something a little different this year.

Have a Moroccan Night

The Sultan’s Tent is an experience worth sharing with your ride or die crew. With it’s dim atmosphere, soft music and romantic decor, it’ll feel like you’re in a magical dreamland far away from the city. Get a lesson in belly dancing, enjoy a Moroccan dinner and have an unforgettable celebration. Perfect for you & your two besties or you and your 200 closest friends!

Get Active

As the weather cools, you may want to check out some of the skating rinks the city has to offer. Colonel Sam Smith Skating Trail is an awesome option if your birthday falls between November 28 and March 11. This skating trail is located away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Toronto, plays sweet tunes over the loudspeaker and is free to attend! So lace up your skates, pack some hot chocolate and bring your dearest friends to this rad little skating trail.
