Birthdays are meant to be celebrated. So waste no time finding the perfect venue for you and your crew to celebrate! Here are some of our picks for where to throw a birthday bash in Sun Valley.

The Sawtooth Club

If you’re looking for a comfortable setting with some western flair, check out the Sawtooth Club. You can reserve the entire second floor for upwards of 100 people, or the Mezzanine level for a smaller party. If you’re interested in dining outside (should the weather allow for it), ask about reserving the terrace. This historic establishment is not only known for its fine food and excellent cocktails. It is a wonderfully inviting atmosphere that will make any birthday party – large or small – memorable.

Warfield Distillery and Brewery

The Warfield is an excellent choice for a private party. Their upstairs terrace is one of the best places to watch the sunset with a cocktail in your hand and some tasty treats in front of you. The restaurant is also committed to serving as much local food as possible. If eating local is at the top of your priority list, (or at the top of the birthday boy or girl’s priority list), this is an excellent choice.

Sushi on Second

If you’re looking for a smaller, more intimate setting for your party, and you love sushi, the Tatami room at Sushi on Second is the place for you. Take your shoes off, and sit cross legged at this private table and laugh the night away over a bottle of sake and the chef’s roll of the day (or creative interpretation of it)!

Il Naso

Il Naso is one of Ketchum’s most romantic restaurants. The Italian fare is absolutely delicious, and the intimate nature of each table makes you want to snuggle up to your partner and share a glass or two of wine. This restaurant can accommodate private parties for up to 60 people, or you can reserve ‘The Richard Room’ for up to 20 people. You can also have a quiet, cozy dinner for two.

Smoky Mountain Pizza

If you’re looking to throw a birthday bash for a youngster, Smoky Mountain Pizza is the best place in town. Pizza is a classic and easy go-to for kid’s parties, and their game room can keep kids entertained for as long as they can play. Smoky’s will cater any private event at the restaurant or in your private home. Not a kid and you want a pizza party? Don’t worry; Smoky’s is great for adults too.

Limelight Hotel

If you’re interested in an entirely outdoor affair, the Limelight Hotel will have you (un)covered. The terraces at the Limelight have fabulous views of Baldy, cozy fire pits to snuggle up to, and, best of all, the privacy you need to feel like you’re celebrating your nearest and dearest. The Limelight terraces can be rented out for any cocktail party or event, and they’ll even provide a special menu. Talk about a cherry on top.
