With New Zealanders being a cost-savvy bunch, BYO's become a popular option for events. Whether it's a wedding or a cocktail party, saving money and controlling drink details is too good to pass up! While there are many well known Auckland wedding venues and function spaces that allow BYO, their hiring fees can be quite costly, undermining the potential savings on drinks in the first place. Luckily, Auckland has more affordable BYO venues, but it takes considering some unorthodox options...meaning 'orthodox' spaces like churches and community halls!

Churches and community halls, you ask? They don'y allow alcohol on site, do they? Actually, these Auckland spaces often allow BYO, which make them perfect venues for corporate events, private functions, 21st parties and even wedding receptions! Plus, they have lower hireage fees than other traditional BYO venues in New Zealand's biggest city - awesome for the budget!

Want proof? Here are five awesome and affordable BYO venues in Auckland (which you can find on Spacetoco!):

St. Luke's Church and Community Centre - Planning a large wedding with heaps of guests? St. Luke's Church and Community Centre just outside of Auckland City is a beautiful and affordable wedding venue! Not only is their gothic church great for the ceremony, you can hire out their function spaces for the reception which allow BYO. Plus, wine glasses are part of the hire fee - one less thing to worry about!

Encounter Christian Centre - If you're after a more casual setting for corporate events, Encounter's cafe space is the place for you. Filled with natural light and overlooking Auckland's Waitemata harbour, Encounter allows BYO for business events, which makes it the perfect place for a relaxed networking cocktail party at a very reasonable fee!

St. Aidan's Church - For guests who aren't fussy with drinks, St. Aidan's is an awesome option for a wedding venue. Located in Remuera just outside of the Auckland CBD, St. Aidan's has a stunning church and spacious hall which are both super affordable. The community hall doesn't allow for certain types of alcohol (ie. spirits), but place a few bottles of wine on each of the guests' tables, have beers in ice buckets and that won't be a problem!

Blockhouse Bay Community Centre - Want a go-to venue for all types of BYO events? West Auckland's Blockhouse Bay Community Centre is the perfect place. Pick one of their many spaces depending on the number of guests - the Jim Gilbert hall for weddings and other large get-togethers, the Ivan Burgess Community Hall and Iona Scout Hall for smaller parties, and the historical Armanasco House for more intimate private events! All of these spaces allow for alcohol consumption and sale (if you have a license from the Auckland City Council).

Grey Lynn Community Centre - Located in one of central Auckland's suburbs, the Grey Lynn Community Centre hosts two alcohol-friendly spaces. With heaps of natural light, their main community hall is the perfect venue for BYO large weddings and birthday parties if you avail their cleaning and security services at an extra fee. Have fewer guests? Their Garden Room is a great option, complete with a kitchenette to serve food and drink.

When it comes to BYO, you don't have to break the bank to let the good times roll! Add to your savings by hiring an affordable church or community hall for your wedding, corporatae cocktail party or birthday bonanza. And don't forget to check out Spacetoco for more of these awesome Auckland venues for your next BYO event!

Reviews from our customers

“Didn’t realise it would be this easy”

Kara, City of Tea Tree Gully

“I was delighted to find the space. It is a unique space in the heart of the city that strikes the perfect balance between practicality and style. The booking process, the facilities and the service were impeccable, and the space itself is cool. It was perfect for our recent media event.”

Tahlie, Community News

“SpacetoCo is perfect for small businesses like mine that need affordable and versatile spaces. The SpacetoCo service is second to none. You won't be disappointed!”

Kylie, Marlee & Me Creations

“Being situated in the Heritage Moores Building on Henry St in the heart of Fremantle, we recognised that our Spaces were desired by many but known only by a few. SpacetoCo offered us a chance to not only streamline our processes around the booking of Space but gave us an opportunity to be exposed to a wider audience. We’ve since taken bookings for weddings, baby showers, documentary shoots and group workshops. The power of local people accessing local space is a vision we share with SpacetoCo, and one that I would encourage all business owners to consider”

Jennifer, PaperBird Books

“SpacetoCo has made it so much easier for me to find unique trendy shop spaces for my popup shops. What I love about this service is that I can do a popup shop anytime I want. The booking process is user friendly & very reliable. I will continue to use their service for sure!”

Alexandar, Ikuku Athletics

“SpacetoCo has helped me turn a bit of extra space in our office into a thriving co-working space in the heart of Subiaco. As a host, I love the transparency and flexibility I have with the platform, allowing us to manage bookings, guest payments and communication in one area. We get local and national enquiries from SpacetoCo for people needing a hot desk or workshop space for an hour, a day or a month, and I love that they can find Ampersand Collective without any extra work required from me!”

Allison, Ampersand Collective
