Top 10 Best Charlotte Birthday Party Venues

Best Places for Birthday Parties in Charlotte

When it comes time to plan your child’s birthday party, many factors go into it, like cost, location, and hey, even originality. Charlotte and the surrounding area has a lot to offer, and while there are plenty of birthday party venues, some get overdone and replicated over and over again. Bounce places are great, but after you have been to 20 bounce house facilities, they tend to lose their luster, even with the kids. When my kids have a party, we really like to focus on where their interests lie and try and find a place or theme that is unique to their personalities. After doing tons of research each year, I have compiled a nice list of unique places to host your child’s birthday party or spark some party planning creativity.

Arts & Crafts Birthday Parties

Dish it Out

Offers pottery, mosaic, and glass craft parties for kids who love to create.

Dish It Out Pottery Painting StudioWe have hundreds of pieces of bisque to select from. You pick a piece of pottery and then select from our wall of paints. Studio associates are here to explain the painting process, demonstrate techniques, and cheer you on. You paint your piece then leave it with us for about a week to be glazed and fired in the kilns.
