Parties are supposed to be fun. Why throw a party if you aren’t going to have a good time. Many people forget this. They get so distracted by the guest list and all the things they want to include that they don’t focus on the most basic question: are people going to be having a good time? Forget the food. Forget the music, and, at least temporarily, forget the booze. You need to see if the basic idea of the party is a good one. And I can tell you that any event at a truly unique location for corporate events in Philadelphia will give you a great start.

Plan Your Party With Your Guests in Mind

Not every party is going to be the same. In fact, they should all be quite different. Unfortunately, this is rarely the case. They all seem similar these days. The first step to throwing any great party is to understand your audience. Make sure that, whatever is going to be the central activity of your party, you have planned something that people aren’t already burned out on. Twenty year olds don’t like to stand around only playing beer pong, and adults don’t want every get-together to be a wine and cheese dinner party. You need to know what your friends will want to do, and you will need to know what they are already sick of. You should look for a location that is known to host corporate events in Philadelphia where your coworkers have a place to relax for a moment during an activity that takes them out of their comfort zone.

Tasty Food and Drinks Go A Long Way

The older we get, the more our bodies get into a rhythm. We need to eat regularly, and some of us need a drink at a certain point in the night. If you want your buddies to be able to leave all of their worries at home, you need to make sure you provide access to quality food and beer. I am not saying that just because you want to have friends over you are required to shell out for both of these things, but it is absolutely necessary to make sure you guests have access. I will say however that the best parties do provide booze and food, but so long as you simply provide the access, your party can be just fine.

Everyone Feels Cool in a VIP Room

When you are out partying with friends, it is always nice to have a private area where you can retreat with your group. In a club, this is called bottle service. At a professional basketball game, you could have your own box. If it is me planning this party, I would rent out the event room at the Speed Raceway indoor go kart track. This location is ideal because it is versatile. It comfortably hosts private parties, birthday parties, and corporate events in Philadelphia. You have the options of just racing with some friends, renting out the event room so your group has a place to relax while other people race, or simply renting the entire facility. If you have a big enough group, you should absolutely rent out the whole track because then you are free to customize the experience to your liking. You can have food catered and play your own music. You can take breaks from racing and have a dance party for a bit. It will be whatever experience you want it to be.


Everyone has different gifts. Some people are good at math. Some people can hear extremely well. Some people are gifted by being able to pick up on the feelings of those around them. If you are the party host, you should try to develop that trait. Try to focus in on what is makes people happy. It is your responsibility to create an environment where they are both relaxed and excited, which isn’t always an easy job. While there are tons of options around town where you can throw a great event, I would seriously recommend Speed Raceway because it is a seriously unique and exciting venue that your guests are sure to remember.
