    Please recommend a venue

    My son will be turning two in four months. Seems like there is plenty of time to plan a birthday party but I want to start working on this a bit earlier.

    Our house is small so I want to have his birthday party at a venue in Hong Kong--not a restaurant but some place that is designed to host birthday parties for young kids. I want to do something simple and he'll likely only be inviting 5 or so kids and their moms and dads so it won't be a huge affair.

    Can anyone recommend good venues around HK for this type of thing? How much do they cost for rental etc. and what have your own experiences been?

    Thanks!

    Where are you? In Discovery Bay you can rent out Midget Gems which is a kids playroom. DD had her third party with them.

    Welcome to Midget Gems Kid's Club

    You may also want to try the following and see if they have party packages:
    * Playtown, - Welcome to PlayTown! Shop 121, Podium Level 1, The Westwood, 8 Belcher's Street Tel: 2258 9558
    * Wise Kids Playroom (Cyberport and soon opening in Causeway Bay) Welcome to Wise-Kids
    * Toy Library - Booking essential on 2921 0386 or in person. Can book one week in advance. You can also show up and hope for a 'standy-by' ticket.

    I will be watching this thread as I am looking for ideas to host a 5th birthday later in the year.

    Baby Cake at Horizon Plaza is often having birthday parties, they have toys, tables for kids and parents, cakes, ballons, it's not too big and very friendly...

    But Wise kids, Playtown, My Gym, JWT all these places charge u anything between HKD 3000-5000 and if u are having only 5 kids it works out very expensive. If ur building has a club house or a friend's building where u could have the party it will work out much cheaper.

    Baby cake at Horizon plaza is a good place and we did look at it for our son's 2nd birthday but at 2 the kids are not likely be that interested in baking etc. in terms of size it is perfect

    Why not just organize a picnic at the beach or if there's a park near you. Give each child a bucket of beach toys when they arrive, and that will keep them occupied. Run a few silly relay games with Dads/Mums. You can bring some finger food and drinks and have pizza delivered to the beach. :)

    i'd be happy to rent my place to you, i wouldn't charge $3000 either...probably $1000 would be fine. you'd have access to our toys and if you wanted, we could provide painting etc. if you wanted a "leader" to organise for you some arts & crafts, stories and songs, then it would be a little more, depending on what you were after.

    The only thing is, it's only availble on Sundays & Tuesdays currently. In september, it will also be available on Thursdays.

    We don't live in a building and have no access to a clubhouse. We live in a village house in the New Territories.

    I prefer to have the party inside because it will be the end of November. At that time it isn't exactly blizzard weather here in HK but most of my husband's family as well as my husband think when the temperature drops its "freezing."

    We went to the beach the week of my son's birthday last year and that sort of turned into a fiasco because he wanted to play in the water and although I didn't think the temperature was too cold, my husband did and so to this day he still reminds me about how I tried to "freeze our son to death." Additionally, we don't live anywhere near a clean, nice beach.

    As far as parks go, there is one nearby us but there aren't any really suitable eating areas (picnic tables) and its a bit dirty.

    I just feel like indoors would be much more manageable especially with my energetic son and his energetic friends.
