    Your Guide to the Best Christmas Party Venues in Brisbane

    It’s the merry season, which can only mean one thing: it’s time to plan the office Christmas party. Whether or not you indulge in the traditional aspects of the holiday season, Christmas is always a great time to get the team together to celebrate your year of achievements and prepare to ring in the new year only weeks later.


    VenueCrew Specialist Tip #1: Decide between feast or party.

    Now, don’t get us wrong; you don’t have to choose between great food or a party atmosphere because most venues in Brisbane are more than capable of achieving both. However, it certainly helps when you’re choosing a venue to know if you want your team and special guests to be spending most of their time chatting over multiple courses of a delicious feast or mingling throughout a room before hitting the dancefloor. Some venues, like restaurants or hotels, some venues will be better suited to a formal sit-down affair, whereas bars, wineries, and restaurants can offer a more casual vibe.


    Coolibah Downs is ideally suited to a more informal affair, with private gardens and space for casual lawn games. They offer a stunning Christmas Gala package so you can celebrate with your team in style, offering an experience out under the stars. They’re well-equipped to host intimate events and large parties in their indoor and outdoor gathering spaces. With festoon lighting and warm candlelight, there’s a sense of magic to Christmas parties at Coolibah Downs. Download the Coolibah Downs brochure here.


    VenueCrew Specialist Tip#2: Consider accessibility and location.

    Your Christmas party should be open and welcoming to everyone from the group, meaning that the location of the venue and its accessibility should be the first questions you ask. Most companies opt to hold their Christmas parties in the Brisbane CBD where public transport and rideshare options are readily available. If you’re planning something a little further away from Brisbane’s city centre, take note of nearby accommodation options. If you hold your Christmas party at one of Brisbane’s many hotels, then accommodation is quickly sorted!


    Also, take into consideration whether any guests will require accessible entrances and facilities. This includes ramps and lifts and bathrooms that are located on the same floor as your event. Most venues accommodate this, but make sure you list that as a requirement when you begin your search.


    Located in South Bank, the Emporium Hotel is one of Brisbane’s go-to venues for corporate events and parties where a sleepover is encouraged. Boasting luxury accommodation, as well as a pillarless ballroom with high-end AV systems, you’ll enjoy a night to remember at your next Christmas party.
