Are you looking for kids birthday party venues? If you’re in NYC, then you need to check out where we held my son’s 1st birthday: Sippy Cups Cafe!
I mean, is that name not the cutest ever?!
When my daughter was around 12 months or so, we took her there for a play day, and it was so fun. When I was looking for kids birthday party venues it came up, and I remembered how cute it was! I figured I’d email them, and see what they offered.
Their birthday party packages are available online, but because of COVID, they offered a discount off of the listed packages! I emailed back and forth with Danielle, and she was super responsive and incredibly sweet. She laid everything out for me clearly. There were limits on how many people could attend (COVID), but other than that it seemed pretty great.
The package we chose included a theme (we chose Sesame Street), a cake, party favors, food for the kids, and entertainment. It also included unlimited coffee beverages (yep, lattes and cappuccinos too) for adults!
I was like, unlimited coffee? where do I sign?!
The day of the party rolls in, and we walk out of the house with just our diaper bag. I cannot explain how awesome it was to not have to worry about planning, packing, and carrying loads of decor back and forth.
The place is small, but it felt very spacious for our group size. One side has seating for adults, and the other side (separated by a small white gate) has a play area. They placed a fully decked out table for the kids on the ‘adult side’ next to the counter where they serve up delicious coffees. They also placed a table by the entrance with the food we ordered for the adults (bagels, muffins, glazed donuts, and fruit).
The kids mostly free-played, but they did a scheduled parachute play session (where they had everyone sing Happy Birthday). They also played music, and brought out bubbles and shakers too. The entire time they were going around taking drink orders, and making sure everyone was ok. They also were really good about communicating what was happening and when.
Everyone had such a great time. The place itself was very clean, and there was a large variety of sections to play with too.
They had an animal care (vet) section, a market, a huge jungle gym with 2 slides and crawling spaces, legos and train tables, and so much more.
I am so grateful I was able to find a place so last minute that was super accomodating and did EVERYTHING for me.
If you are looking for kids birthday party venues, I would most definitely book Sippy Cups Cafe. I’m probably going to book an event with them next year. Everyone had such an amazing time. Thank you Sippy Cups!
