What types of Christmas party venues will I find in each Brisbane neighbourhood?

From world-class hotels to boutique bars and local watering holes, there's no shortage of brilliant Christmas party venues in Brisbane. Start the search for party venues for your work Christmas party in these Brisbane neighbourhoods:

Brisbane CBD

If you're after the best Christmas party venues, then the Brisbane CBD is definitely the place to be. The city centre offers a wide range of top-quality venue options, from opulent 5-star hotels and beautiful heritage buildings to ultra-modern high-rise office complexes with modern amenities. The most popular Christmas party venues are the hotels around the Botanic Gardens near James St. You'll find that many venues offer special Christmas packages where they can cater for up to 250 people as well as room hire/DJ equipment included in one price package. Other popular options in this area are traditional-style pubs and newer bars and clubs. Albert Street, in particular, is known for its vibrant nightlife scene and offers a great selection of venues for Christmas parties. Whether you're looking for a cozy pub with a laid-back atmosphere or a chic cocktail bar with a sleek modern design, you'll find something to suit your taste.

Fortitude Valley

One of the biggest nightlife precincts in Australia, Fortitude Valley has everything that your next work Christmas party could hope for! From exclusive cocktail lounges to world-class nightclubs, you won't lack choice when looking for a holiday party venue in Fortitude Valley. Your culinary experience in Fortitude Valley will be taken to the next level with the incredible range of dining options available. From trendy rooftop bars to hidden laneway restaurants, Fortitude Valley has it all.

South Brisbane

Another great spot for Christmas party venues, South Brisbane is home to some of the most popular bars, pubs and clubs in town. If you're looking for a chic and stylish venue for your work party, then look no further than this vibrant neighbourhood.

Spring Hill

Just a short walk from the CBD, Spring Hill is another fantastic neighbourhood for Christmas party venues. This area is renowned for its lively bar scene and there are plenty of great options to choose from, whether you're looking for a relaxed pub or a chic rooftop bar.

South Bank

If you're searching for a Christmas party venue that offers a beautiful waterfront location, South Bank is the place to be. This vibrant precinct is situated along the Brisbane River and offers a variety of fantastic options for your festive celebration. Enjoy sweeping views of the river and the stunning city skyline, as you celebrate the holiday season with your colleagues or friends at the South Bank Parklands.

Brisbane's West End

The inner suburb of West End is popular with both locals and visitors alike. If you're after Christmas party venues with an alternative feel, then this is the place to be. 

The suburbs

South-East Brisbane, Northside Brisbane and the Inner Northern Suburbs are some of the best places to visit if you're looking for a more family-friendly Christmas party venue.

What kind of Christmas party venues are available in Brisbane?

Whether you're looking to celebrate the holidays with a laidback dinner or an all-night party, there are plenty of Brisbane function spaces that will cater to your holiday bash. These are some of the most popular event space options for a Brisbane Christmas party:

Hotel function rooms

Most hotels will have a number of function rooms available for private hire, including ones dedicated to Christmas parties. Whilst they may be a little expensive, you usually get high standards in terms of venue quality, food and service. Some even offer packages like food packages that include a Christmas-themed menu and drink options. Hotel function rooms offer a convenient and all-inclusive option for hosting your Christmas party. Many hotels also have on-site accommodation, allowing your guests to stay overnight without worrying about transportation.

Restaurants

If you want to combine your Christmas party with a nice dinner, then booking a private dining room at your favourite restaurant is an excellent option. This way, you'll be able to enjoy both good service and great food menu options in a comfortable setting. This Brisbane gem is ideal for a wide range of day or night functions so enjoy exceptional dining with your colleagues, friends, or family. Many restaurants in Brisbane offer private dining rooms that can be booked for Christmas parties. These private spaces provide an intimate and exclusive setting for your celebration.

Nightclubs

Most nightclubs in Brisbane have a huge range of party packages available for Christmas parties, some including entry fees, drinks discounts and even food. This is a great spot for a casual Christmas party for smaller teams, but if you're celebrating with the entire office, it's best to hire the entire venue.

Local pubs and bars

The most obvious choice for a great Brisbane Christmas party venue is an authentic local pub. If your ideal Brisbane Christmas party involves drinking into the wee hours of the morning, booking a bar or pub might just be what you need. There are plenty of fantastic pubs all around the city that you can reserve and turn into your own private drinking den — perfect for groups! Check out these pubs in Brisbane.

You'll get a more casual venue and some great drink specials and a wide selection of beers, but you'll also need to organise food and transport yourself. Always make sure to book early during peak times as occupancy rates will be high.

Cafe spaces

If you'd like your Christmas party to be a laid-back affair, booking an intimate space at a cafe is an excellent idea. Look for quiet cafes with cosy booths and dim lighting; these are the best spots for talking and laughing with colleagues or friends over dinner and drinks. This intimate function venue provides a cozy and warm atmosphere that is perfect for smaller gatherings.

Rooftop Bars

Brisbane is known for its warm weather and beautiful outdoor spaces, so why not make the most of it this Christmas and celebrate at one of the many incredible rooftop bars in the city? With stunning views of the city skyline and wide range of food and craft beers on offer, you'll be able to drink, dance and dine in style at this rooftop venue.

Penthouse suites

If your office has a big Christmas party budget, then penthouse suites are definitely the way to go. This is one of the most lavish and expensive options, but the elevated views of the Brisbane City skyline, world-class hotel service and exquisite food are well worth it.

Corporate function venues

Check out some of the larger corporate venues and see if they offer any holiday party package deals, which usually include things like free or discounted catering and drinks packages as well as detailed planning for your event. Your office party, whether cocktail style or a formal dinner, can be hosted at these venues. Corporate function venues are perfect for larger groups and can accommodate various types of events.

Private dining rooms

If you want somewhere a bit more intimate but still want the atmosphere and glamour of a city venue, then another great choice is to rent out an entire private dining room. There are tons of different private function room hires in Brisbane that offer this sort of thing.

What are some things I should think about when booking a Christmas party venue?

Follow these 5 steps to plan this year’s corporate Christmas party. Check out also these tips for finding the perfect Christmas party venue in Brisbane:

Book early

Venues for Christmas parties are in high demand long before the holiday season. You should book your venue at least 4-6 months in advance to ensure you have a date available that works best with your company or organisation's schedule. If you want to hire any special equipment or entertainment, book these beforehand so you don't end up disappointed on the actual day of your Xmas party!

Prioritise accessibility

Always try to keep your party close to where everyone works or lives. Try to think about who is coming and find function spaces that are accessible, whether through public or private transport. If you have guests who use wheelchairs, make sure the venue is wheelchair accessible and that there are parking and/or transport links nearby.

If anyone is travelling from outside Brisbane, consider how they will get to your venue. You could also try sharing a carpool to ensure you're not wasting money and the environment on everyone driving alone! An ideal location for a Christmas party venue in Brisbane would be one that is conveniently located near public transport links, such as train stations or bus stops. This will make it easier for your guests to reach the venue without having to worry about driving or finding parking.

Check the venue's amenities

When considering function spaces, make sure the one you book an exclusive venue hire has all of the equipment and facilities you need for your party. If you're having a big Christmas party, check that there is enough room to fit everyone comfortably in the location. If there will be an audio-visual presentation, games or live entertainment, make sure there's enough space and the necessary equipment.

Find out whether your venue provides furniture, beverages, cutlery and crockery, place settings, and whatever else your event needs. Do they allow outside food? Ask questions about catering when choosing function rooms as this will help determine how much work you need to do before your Christmas party.

Check for Christmas party packages

Many festive party venues in Brisbane offer Christmas party packages that can save you money and hassle. These usually include delicious food & beverage packages, music and decorations, but vary from venue to venue so be sure to check what's included before making your decision.

Ask about additional fees

Check out additional costs such as booking fees and deposits; these can really add up, so make sure you're aware of them! Also, make sure that you know whether taxes are included in special rates offered by the venue. Unexpected extra costs at the end of the party can ruin your Christmas budget!

Consider entertainment options

Live entertainment makes any party more engaging and memorable. If you're planning on getting entertainment, make sure to book these in advance so there are no hiccups and you get the best quality at the most affordable price. The last thing you want is for your well-planned event to be spoiled by an underwhelming act or poor sound system! Think of a fun activity or performance that suits the theme and atmosphere of your Christmas party. Brisbane offers a wide range of entertainment options to choose from.

Assign day-of tasks to key personnel

If you're planning an office Christmas party, assign tasks such as leading a raffle for a door prize or organising the gift exchange to key people. Spread the workload around an experienced team so everyone can enjoy themselves comfortably.

It's also wise to assign someone responsible for keeping track of RSVPs and emailing anyone who hasn't confirmed their attendance with information about the venue, time and date. This way, you'll know exactly how many people will be arriving, which in turn helps you determine how much food and drink to order!
