A 40th birthday is a milestone event, and there are many fun and unique places to hold a 40th birthday party. A 40th birthday party can be a small, intimate affair with close friends and family, or it can be the bash of the decade for hundreds of people. Decide on the type and style of party you want to have, then find a place that fits the theme.

Boat

If you are near water, you can have a 40th birthday party on a boat. You can rent a boat for the day, or you can book a party on a sunset cruise. There are many companies that rent boats you can take out yourself or that let you book parties on their boats. Check around for the best deal.

Casino

A casino can be a good choice for a 40th birthday party. You can fly to Las Vegas, or you can hold the party at a nearby casino. Check with casinos to see if they have party rooms for rent or party packages available. If there is no casino nearby, you can rent blackjack and roulette tables and turn your party into a casino game night.

Restaurant

For a more traditional 40th birthday party, rent a room at a local restaurant. Make the party more personal by choosing a favorite restaurant or one with special meaning. For example, if the birthday celebrant has always dreamed of going to Paris, book a room at a French restaurant and ask people to come dressed in French attire.

Museum

Consider booking a local museum to host a truly historical 40th birthday celebration. Many museums rent rooms for private events, and this could make for a truly unique party venue. Choose a museum that fits the guest of honor's interests.
