Christmas is a time for family and friends, of reflecting on the past year and nurturing hope for the future. Christmas dinner is a great occasion to catch up with those who have stayed by your side throughout the year. But it can also be pretty overwhelming to think about all the tasks associated with throwing a good get-together over dinner, so if you're looking for a little help, here are some tips to make your Christmas dinner party run smoothly:
If you want to make this coming Christmas even more special than the last, try out some of these ideas to make your Christmas dinner even more interesting:
Hire fees for Christmas dinner venues will vary depending on the type of hire you’re looking for. If you’re interested in per person packages, the prices range between $20 to $90. Hourly hire rates may start at as little as $100. For minimum spend venues expect rates to start at $800. Remember the pricing may change depending on the size of the venue, the number of people coming, the day of the week and the time of the day. (Based on Tagvenue data.)
Yes, it’s possible to hire a venue without paying for it. Venues operating on a minimum spend basis don’t charge hiring fees. Instead, you agree to spend a set amount of money on food and drinks. Remember that if you fail to meet this cost so you will need to pay off the remaining amount.
If you’re looking for a good variety of waterside restaurants, a good area to start would be a bit south of Barangaroo as you make your way along the bay. For more upscale options with a bigger focus on multi-course menus with great cocktails, Kings Cross is a good place to start looking. For the more budget-conscious, have a look in North Sydney just a bit south of St Leonards Park for a few Christmas party restaurants with a greater deal of flexibility.
Christmas dinner options in Sydney are incredibly varied, with many restaurants putting on the traditional spread options of colder salads, meats and seafood or going all-in on turkey with all the trimmings. Most often you’ll find that some of the best Christmas lunch and work party venues offer buffet-style dining or a multi-course experience (usually 3-5 courses) that combines bottomless drinks, excellently prepared dishes, and an overall jolly atmosphere.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
