Turning 21 years old is a milestone birthday. This birthday signifies the right to legally consume and purchase alcohol. Birthday celebrations for a 21-year-old usually focus on the right to finally drink alcohol. There are a variety of ways to celebrate a 21st birthday and the first legal taste of alcohol. Make certain it is done responsibly and safely though.

Party at a Bar or Club

A 21st birthday celebration can take place at a bar or club. This type of party features music, dancing, space for a large group of people, and most importantly, alcohol. The guest of honour can invite all his friends to a bar or club to enjoy the celebration. Many bars and clubs offer drink specials for guests, free drinks for the guest of honour, and even certain areas of the bar or club available just for the birthday party.


There are a variety of places a person turning 21 years old can visit to celebrate her birthday. Large cities such as New York City, Boston, Chicago and Philadelphia are ideal places to celebrate a 21st birthday as they offer a wide range of bars and clubs. Take a trip to the beach and rent a beach house to celebrate a 21st birthday. Virginia Beach, Myrtle Beach, even Miami Beach are 21st birthday destinations because of the beach and the nightclub and party scene. Trips to casino-based areas such as Las Vegas or Atlantic City are also options in celebrating a 21st birthday as you can drink and gamble.

Limousine Party

Limousine parties are a new way to celebrate events. Order a limousine and invite your friends for a party driving around in a large city near your home. Make certain that a variety of drinks are provided in the limousine, the music is playing loudly, and your group is all dressed up. The limousine also has the option to stop at various bars and clubs in the city for more celebration. This is a responsible way to celebrate a 21st birthday as there is a driver available to keep all guests safe and off the road.

Birthday Dinner

While you may be looking forward to that first legal sip of alcohol, you might not want to get too intoxicated or perhaps you do not enjoy the club or bar scene. A 21st birthday dinner at a favourite restaurant is a birthday celebration option. Choose your favourite restaurant, invite your closest friends, and enjoy a birthday dinner and drinks with your friends.
