Why rent a flat for a party?
Renting a flat for a party is an excellent option if you’re planning a gathering and find that your own home won’t be suitable for it. For instance, if your flat is too small for the number of guests you’re hoping to invite, you can rent a larger flat through Peerspace to ensure you and your guests have adequate space.
In addition, many flat rentals include outdoor space, such as a backyard garden, rooftop terrace, or balcony. This can be a major benefit for a party, especially if the weather is pleasant. Flats can also present a more affordable option compared to traditional party venues, especially if you’re hosting a smaller party and are struggling to find an appropriately sized venue for it.

How to rent a flat for a party
Start by heading over to the homepage of Peerspace, the largest online marketplace for short-term rentals of all kinds of event and production locations, including but by no means limited to flats. (Peerspace can connect you with thousands of flats in cities throughout the UK, Australia, the US, Canada, and elsewhere.)
On the site’s homepage, start by entering the type of event you’re planning (in this case, a party), the location where you’re planning it, and the date of the party if you happen to know it already, then click “Search.”
From there, you can go ahead and make your search results a little more specific, especially if your search is returning more listings than you feel like browsing through. There are numerous filters to choose from–depending on what criteria are most important to you.
You can narrow your search down based on:
- Hourly price
- Number of guests
- Indoor and outdoor spaces
- Available production equipment
- Style (e.g. bohemian, colorful, industrial)
- Space type (e.g. apartment, bar, classroom, church)
- Availability of instant booking
- Amenities (e.g. deck, elevator, fireplace, gazebo)
- And even more–be sure to give the Peerspace search tool a try
After adding as many filters to your search as you like, the next step is going to be browsing through specific listings to select the flat(s) that would be the best fit for the event you’re planning.
Thankfully, Peerspace also makes this part of the process as easy as possible by ensuring that all listings have in-depth descriptions and high-quality photos of the space.
In addition, many listings come with honest reviews from past renters of the space, giving you a better idea of what to expect before you see the space in person. Plus, if you still have any questions after reviewing the listing in full, you can easily reach out to the host of a space by clicking the “Message Host” button.

Bright penthouse space with balcony in Clerkenwell
Hosting a large event for up to 80 people? Consider this bright, nearly 700-square-foot penthouse space. Most notably, the space has been styled to “sit somewhere between a Bond villain’s evil lair and Gio Ponti’s famous Parco dei Principi hotel in Naples,” according to the hosts!
