Partystar allows you to compare function venues in a clear and simple format, with information that is accurate and up to date. We ensure that your enquiry is handled promptly and your party proceeds smoothly.
Since 2006, people have entrusted us 150,000 party enquiries.
We don't charge venues commission on your booking. This is incredibly important, as it means we are fully independent, and not tied to big venues. You benefit from access to unique and little-known venues.
We invite your feedback before and after your party, and if we see any pattern of complaints with a venue, they're off. You come first. You're organising the party of a lifetime here, and we want it to be perfect.
We take all our own photos, and we spend many, many hours getting those photos just right.
Our prices are accurate. We double and triple-check everything is correct. In the rare instance that a venue raises their price without telling us, we guarantee we'll get you the published price, or we'll give you $50 for the inconvenience. Learn more about our guarantee.
