Guide to Choosing an Event Venue

Some events are put together haphazardly and sloppily, often focusing too much about what it is you’re trying to do than how much your guests will enjoy it. Whether it’s a celebration like a birthday party or bachelorette party or a professional setting like a business networking event, the setting you are in is the first chance you will have to introduce your guests to your event and set the tone for the evening. This guide will help you make the right decision when it comes to booking space for a special night!

Event Venue Ideas

Room Size
The most important thing to consider is how many people will be attending your event. You do not want to end up wasting a rental on a large hall for a party of six, and alternatively having too many guests in too cramped of a space is even worse! Howl at the Moon’s locations, however, have the right fit for your party. We have private and semi-private booking options available for any event, often with groups as large as 200! Howl’s party space differs in size by location, but table reservations, VIP sections and even our entire venue can be set up to you and your guests’ exact needs!

Entertainment
You don’t want to be the kind of host running around and making sure that every person is enjoying the night. It’s stressful on you, and nobody likes feeling forced into awkward social situations. Instead, why not leave it to the professionals to keep your guests entertained? Bringing in speakers, dancers or musicians adds excitement and anticipation to any event. Even better, Howl at the Moon’s live band is the top in class for entertaining your guests! From background music to a genre-bending, instrument-swapping performance, Howl’s band will play to the exact mood of the evening and have hundreds of hit songs in their setlist.

Customization
Some party halls and event spaces can just be a little too bland for your event. Streamers, balloons can help, but plain white walls and panelling do not make for a most-welcoming aesthetic. A good idea is to choose a venue that has hosted something similar to your event in the past and can set up their space to your needs. All of Howl at the Moon’s locations let you deck out the venue your way, including custom piano banners, photo booths, cocktail stations, catering options and more. We are pros at hosting events of any type and promise to make your night unforgettable for all of your guests.

Drinks
To put a bow on your evening, the last thing you need are drinks! It is not just about putting out the most popular types of liquor and mixers, either. People want to have fun and be excited! Nothing lights up an event like picture-worthy and customized cocktails, shots and fishbowls. Howl at the Moon loves to creating the perfect buzz for your party with specialty named drinks, cocktail stations and drink packages including unlimited beer, liquor and more (ask us about our wine options). Plus, our 86 oz. signature buckets are your best bet for bringing your guests closer together!

Service
The final and most important thing to be on the lookout for when searching for an event venue is the type of service you are getting. It is crucial to know and relay what you and your party’s exact needs are so the venue can determine if they can provide accordingly. The worst kind of situation is being stuck in a venue that would be otherwise perfect, and having to deal with understaffed, rude or bland service. Luckily, Howl at the Moon’s servers are out of this world and are the true stars of our show. More than anything, they want to see you up and moving, enjoying your event to its full potential! You may see them up on stage or dancing in the crowd, but if you need someone to howl with, they’ll be right there singing along with you.

Howl at the Moon is the most exciting place to host your next event, whether it be a birthday bash, bachelor party, bachelorette party, or a corporate outing or meet-up—Howl can handle it all! Book your reservation today!

Top 80’s Songs

New wave, glitter, hair metal bands, leg warmers, rap, DeLoreans, electro-pop—the 1980’s had it all! Howl is celebrating the flashiest decade on September 3rd with 80’s Night, featuring 86 oz. Brass Monkey buckets, drink specials, giveaways and more (varies by location)!  Plus, you can enter to win your very own 80’s Night Happy Hour Party. To get you and your song requests ready for the weekend, here’s our most era-defining hits from a time that turned music on its head!

Olivia Newton-John: “Physical”
Numbers don’t lie, and with Physical’s impressive run of twenty-one straight weeks in the number one slot, Olivia Newton-John is responsible for the most popular song of the 1980’s. Physical starts off exactly as it should, full of sparkle and Newton-John’s steady vocals driving the bass line right up into an emphatic chorus that’s style would become the template for the pop songs of the decade that followed. Though not exactly the top-of-mind song for the era any longer, the majority of what came after has a lot to owe to this song’s success.

Bon Jovi:”Livin On a Prayer”
A working-class, east-coast love ballad, this reverb-drenched anthem launched Bon Jovi onto the scene where they’ve remained for over thirty years. Livin’ On A Prayer shot to number one on the charts and stayed there over four consecutive weeks, but the sound of Richie Sambora’s talk-box guitar and Jon Bon Jovi’s endless showmanship will be cemented in our ears forever. The band’s debut album, Slippery When Wet, has since been certified 12x platinum.

Michael Jackson: “Thriller”
Thriller has the ultimate build up of any pop song. It’s almost as if you can hear the excitement of the room you’re in stirring as the recording’s ambiance rises to its triumphant brass peak. Everything after that point, including all the dancing, is well documented history.

Survivor: “Eye of the Tiger”
Survivor did something that very few artists have been able to accomplish. Writing a song that ends up becoming the pump-up anthem of your era is impressive, but writing something that gets played every day over massive stadium P.A. systems for the world’s stars while also being just as meaningful to a kid with a speaker doing drills in a schoolyard? That simply hasn’t been done since.

Van Halen: “Jump”

Like Thriller, Jump’s introduction has proven unforgettable with time. The feeling that’s conveyed, however, is a little different. Jump cradles you through all of its Roth-era peaks and synth-softened valleys. It’s not quite Survivor’s exclamation of victory, but a powerful belief that anything could happen. It’s the sound of ending a clouded early eighties, and without knowing where to land, making the jump to the last half of the decade (and Sammy Hagar).

Party Venue

Whether you’re taking it back or walking through the era for the first time, 80’s Night at Howl at the Moon is the ultimate way to experience the decade! Look out for these songs and plenty more of your favorite tracks as our band rocks you back in time—we promise to look the look the part if you do too.
