Our Guide to Melbourne Christmas Party Venues
Leading up to Christmas in Melbourne, the city is abuzz with various outdoor events and gatherings of festive revellers. Whether you’re planning a rooftop party in Melbourne CBD with your closest friends or hosting a mash-up Christmas and New Year’s Eve corporate party, our local venue finders can suggest plenty of options that’ll suit your party style.
Hotels like The Langham, Melbourne and Park Hyatt are known to put up big Christmas decorations that dazzle tourists and guests alike throughout the holiday season. As such, Christmas party venue hire at these Melbourne hotels is very popular. Since the decor is mostly taken care of, all you really need is good entertainment and to select a nice menu for your guests.
If a laidback Christmas party is more your vibe, Melbourne’s northside restaurant venues should be on your radar. Many have private dining rooms that are just perfect for a holiday shindig. Industrial warehouse-style venues like Metropolis and The Wool Mill offer bright and spacious backdrops for a holiday party that’ll wow your guests. Bring in some festive entertainment, a dash of holiday cheer and you’ll be well on your way to a memorable pre-Christmas break event.
Another option is to head out to wine country for an outdoor Christmas party venue with views of the vineyards. Yarra Valley is a mecca for this kind of thing, with venues like Levantine Hill and Chateau Yering setting the backdrop for many a festive occasion.
Here are some more tips our Melbourne Venue Specialists suggest you consider.
Venue Specialist Tip No. 1: Think Ambience
Taking place at the start of summer, the very best Australian Christmas parties are usually a lively combination of great entertainment and delicious food and wine served in a relaxed setting either outdoors in the shade or in a cool building.
Venue Specialist Tip No. 2: Pre-arrange Transportation
As spring turns to summer, Melbourne gets quieter and traffic becomes less of a challenge. Depending on when you’re planning to host your Melbourne Christmas party, it may or may not be necessary to pre-arrange transportation for your guests. If your event will take place in November or early December, it’s probably best to coordinate chauffeurs or ride-shares, or select a venue with close proximity to public transport. Late December or early January party hosts needn’t worry too much about traffic disrupting their guests’ arrivals and departures.
Venue Specialist Tip No. 3: Select A Plush Hotel Venue
Staycation anyone? Planning your corporate Christmas party or social holiday party at a Melbourne hotel gives your guests the opportunity to splash out and enjoy a night’s staycation. The Langham, Melbourne and Park Hyatt are fabulous options if you have a few VIP guests or guests travelling from far outside the city centre to attend your holiday function.
