A banquet hall is a space offered mainly for weddings, birthdays, bridal showers and other personal events. They could be separate or part of a hotel or restaurant. Most banquet hall providers offer food and catering along with the hall.
When you go looking for a banquet hall, look for:
- Capacity: How many guests will the hall accommodate easily? Refer to your guest list for that and ask your provider for the right size. A smaller hall will be uncomfortable for your guests, while a larger size might affect people’s perception of its success.
- Interiors: Most providers offer banquet halls in Dubai with certain themes. You might want to see the props and the furniture before booking the hall. If the banquet hall isn’t maintained properly, the furniture might be run down, or worse, broken. That won’t reflect well on your event.
- Location: Find a hall that’s near your guests. You don’t want to invite them to a banquet hall in Bur Dubai if most of your guests are in Jumeriah.
- Other Amenities: Many banquet hall providers offer extra amenities to sweeten the deal. Depending on the cost, this might include AV equipment, parking space, on-site catering, and even a Wi-Fi connection nowadays.
