Recommended & Reviewed Christmas Party Venues – 2021

13 Sep 20215m read

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas parties will be going full steam ahead this year. After 18 months of enforced abstinence here at the venue booker we are really really looking forward to a good party. This is a sentiment we are seeing across our client base. Enquires for party venues of all types are growing especially Christmas parties of all kinds, be it an intimate private lunch or dinner for 20, or a company Christmas party for 250! Venues in cities across the UK will once again be offering a range of exciting Corporate Festive Packages.

For many organisations, the Christmas event may be the first time the whole company has been together in the same room for almost two years. Whatever the format here at the venue booker we would be delighted to help. We can and will save you both money and time.

Last week we visited the Chrismas Party show, 80+ exhibitors.  There really is something for every single taste out there for the upcoming festive season! Plus there is an eveer growing trend for venues with an interactive element, we have taken this into account when drawing up our list of our favourite venues.

Red Palace | Waterloo, London

Join the prince and his fairytale guests for a night of decadence and debauchery within a gothic masquerade ball. Dressed as one of his royal subjects, disguised behind a mask, you’ll drink and dance your way through a ‘living labyrinth’ of rooms filled with dancers, jesters, contortionists, and more. If you want to you can also join the Royal Banquet – a four-course feast cooked up by Masterchef semi-finalist Annie McKenzie, best washed down with copious amounts of wine.

Potential Embarrassment Factor: 7/10

Wonderland – Leicester, Liverpool & Birmingham, Manchester

“As you approach the iconic party venue your senses dance as intriguing sights and mysterious sounds grow stronger. The enchanted land that once seemed so far away is now before you – An evening of astounding entertainment and great fun awaits – Ladies and Gentlemen welcome to WONDERLAND!

As you enter the glistening venue, leaving the winter’s night behind, you are met by magical, timid creatures who clamour to hide behind one another as they point the way to one of the many bars.

The enchanted forest lies ahead, where stilted imps offer delicious hot and cold canapés and magnificent unicorns stride around their land. The beautiful forest bars serve crisp wines and chilled beers while the champagne and cocktail bar offers glasses of glamour and cocktails crafted to order, as you relax and soak up the spirited atmosphere Wonderland freely offers.

Dazzling beams of light now dance around the room as you explore further, collecting friends and colleagues along the way.

The tempo of the evening momentarily changes pace as impromptu bursts of entertainment light up the podiums and the night begins to show its real character!

As you are guided in to take your seats for a superb three course feast, the vibrant stage comes to life and you are treated to an evening of exhilarating entertainment. World-class aerial entertainers fill the air above you, showcasing world-class routines while seamlessly choreographed dancers bring powerful energy to the floor below.

As dinner comes to a close, the dance floor instantly fills with a mixture of modern hits and party classics. A Chocolate fountain begins to flow, casino tables open and fairground stalls begin to ply their trade. While some take coffee and chocolates in a quieter area, the dance floor beckons for those disco bunnies with boundless energy and whose night is still young!

As midnight approaches breakfast rolls are served against the vista of twinkling lights and inspiring scenery. Wonderland has been a unique experience; a privilege to behold; its secrets to be kept!”

Potential Embarrassment: Hits the target, 3/10.

Queens: Skate Dine Bowl | London, Queensway

Featuring Bowling, Curling, Ice Skating, Arcades and of course all of the coolest Christmas favourites by MEATliquor.

Potential Embarrassment Factor: Huge.

Lucky Voice – London & Brighton

Karaoke is a legitimate sport. It requires skill, determination, perseverance and finally, alcohol. But it also requires a karaoke bar, at lucky voice the deal is simple: you pay per person for private rooms, filled with dress up boxes, disco balls and controllable lighting, into which you can take all manner of drinks prepared by the on-site cocktail bar.

Potential Embarrassment Factor: Fill your lungs 9/10

Candlelight Club | Secret Location London

Two days before attending, you’ll receive instructions to track down the secret venue, be it a nondescript warehouse or an abandoned ballroom restored to its former grandeur for one night. And on said night, you’ll don your vintage glad rags, tip your hat to the doorman, and find yourself ushered into a glimmering, brawling, hooch-laden hall of debauchery.

Remarkably, the venue is entirely candlelit, with candles tucked away in nooks and crannies, suspended in chandeliers and illuminating the intimate cabaret tables dotted about the room. On the stage, there’s a live band playing ragtime, Dixieland and swing music, and on the dancefloor, Charleston dancers cutting rugs like there’s no tomorrow – with frequent appearances from fortune tellers and burlesque artists, and DJs spinning retro swing until the wee hours.

And when you’re not flapping on the dancefloor (apparently a good thing), there’s a well-stocked bar to prop up, serving up old-fashioned cocktails (not limited to Old Fashioneds) and sustenance in the form of bar snacks and sharing platters. And if you’re really pushing the boat out, there’s the option to reserve your group a table with welcome bottles of Champagne, or to book in for a three-course meal consisting of classic old-school dishes like truffled artichoke soup, and loin of Hampshire deer with beetroot & celeriac.

Proving that moonshine’s not the only root of bad behaviour.

Piano Works- Farringdon London

The open plan, bare brick walls of this vast, 400-capacity listed Victorian warehouse in Farringdon puts its house pianists and accompanying musicians at centre stage as they play energetic renditions of whatever pop classics the paying customers want until the early hours of the morning.

The list of cocktails is lively too – the classics all come with an interesting (and frequently delicious) twist to liven up the show: the Old Fashioned with mint-infused sugar, the Porn Star Martini using vanilla vodka, and Bloody Mary’s made with tomatoes from the Isle of Wight, no less – and there’s a daily happy hour from 5-7pm.

The food menu is also pretty pared down, with bar snacks (nachos, mac & cheese bites, chicken wings and the like) that allow you to tackle your hunger whilst not getting too distracted from the head bobbing, hand clapping, and feet tapping that the band compels you to do. But if you need a little more sustenance before hitting the floor, you can book your group a table, tuck into a two or three course dinner – with rib-eye steak, sweet potato tostadas, and Thai green curry on the menu  – and round the evening off with infinite glasses of prosecco (also available at brunch, if you’re not particularly attached to Saturday afternoons).

Start thinking of those obscure cult pop songs you loved as a teenager.
