Christmas is a busy but exciting time of the year, with lots of presents to give, carols to sing, food to eat, and people to celebrate with. It’s because of this that we often find ourselves organising a number of events with friends, our company, and family during December.
But no matter the size, putting together a Christmas event is no easy task. You need to organise a date, food, drinks, the guest list, invitations, a venue, entertainment and more. So, to help you get started on ticking off your to-do list, A LIST Guide gives you our curated list of the best Christmas party venues in Melbourne.
The perfect venues for your Christmas party in Melbourne
Melbourne is home to some of the most incredible and unique spaces in Australia. Whichever direction you look, there’s something new and exciting to see. So, whether you’re after a Christmas party venue with breathtaking views of the city skyline, luxurious interior design, a glamorous ballroom, or perhaps something a little less formal, you’ll be sure to find it in Melbourne.
If you’re looking for event spaces in St Kilda, Parkville, Melbourne CBD and everywhere in between, you’ve come to the right place. Your Christmas party is sure to impress once you discover these incredible A LIST Guide venues in Melbourne.
If you have not yet discovered this wonder on Flinders Lane, you are in for a treat. The Garden State Hotel opens from the lane which is a magical sight to behold during the holiday season, being covered in Christmas decorations. The Hotel is described as a ‘four level wonderland’ that’s begging to be explored (not quite a Christmas wonderland, but close enough we think!). Spaces include The Observatory and The Rose Garden, perfect for an intimate Christmas gathering. Aesthetically marvelous in every way; your guests will be treated to sophisticated cocktails, lush surrounds and areas to fit from 20 to 800 guests. Outdoor options are available, allowing your guests to soak up the warm December Melbourne weather.
Christmas is known as being a time of love, joy and cheer, and that’s exactly what Australia’s ‘Happiest Place on Earth’ and its giant smile can provide for your guests. Luna Park is a truly unique venue found in the heart of St Kilda, and the event team can custom design an events package for your Christmas party. If you’re looking for something formal, you can treat your guests to a gala sit down dinner. But if you’re after something more suited to the silly season, you can hire the entire venue, including rides! We guarantee your guests will leave with a smile as big as the entrance.
On the banks of the Yarra River, located on the top floor of the Southgate Precinct, you’ll find Metropolis Events. Metropolis is a must-have venue if you’re planning a sophisticated and glamorous Christmas party, offering a stylish interior and an unparalleled view of Melbourne’s stunning skyline in the summertime. There’s also plenty of space for Christmas decorations, with a high ceiling and versatile floor plan. With a team dedicated to providing a memorable experience, and spaces seating 20 up to 1100; Metropolis can host your high class Christmas party.
Can you feel the excitement already? Can you think of a single person who doesn’t love the zoo? Probably not. You can spoil your Christmas party guests with a full safari experience at Melbourne Zoo in its animal inspired themed and named rooms. The Zoo offers unique animal encounters, but while there won’t be any reindeer, your guests can get up-close and personal with a range of wildlife in the Giraffe Deck or Leopard Lodge. The Melbourne Zoo can cater for groups of 20 to 500, and anything from BBQs to formal dinners can be arranged, making this the perfect venue for a casual Christmas party amongst friends, a work Christmas party, and more. Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals!
If you’re after a Christmas party venue where it’s all about making memorable experiences, look no further than Australian Venue Co. The Australian Venue Co will provide your guests with mouth-watering food, giving them that stuffed feeling you only experience at Christmas time. The company can craft the perfect cocktail event for you and up to 200 guests. Operating at 150 venues Australia wide, it’s no surprise The Australian Venue Co’s portfolio is growing rapidly.
