Christmas Party Venues Hire Guide

Not only have we listed all the best Christmas party venues of Melbourne in one place, we’re also happy to share a bit of insider knowledge with you to make things even smoother. Check out what our experts have to say about Christmas party planning and venue hire in Melbourne below:

  • The early bird really does catch the worm – We’re happy to help if you need to find a last minute venue, but the rule of thumb is that the earlier you start your search, the more opportunities you’ll have. It is true that the most popular Christmas party venues in Melbourne book out many months in advance, so it’s better to not hesitate.
  • Search different districts – The vast majority of work Christmas parties in the city are organised in Melbourne CBD and Port Melbourne. These areas boast stunning sights and amazingly vibrant venues, so it’s no wonder they’re so popular for festive celebrations. Don’t be afraid to look for venues slightly off the beaten path – we’re stoked to help you discover what Melbourne has to offer.
  • Pick a theme – Mouth-watering prawn skewers on the BBQ, breathtaking waterfront views or a quirky Christmas party theme: make sure to include a feature that will leave your guests talking for months.

Let’s get down to business: how much does it really cost to hire a Christmas party venue in Melbourne? As you might have guessed, there’s no single right answer to this question, but keep reading and we’ll make it clear. We’ve created a handy guide to Christmas party venue prices in Melbourne, based on our event planning experience and venue hire data from our platform.

  • Classic Aussie Christmas treats, a dinner with an Asian twist or something surprising – dreaming of a festive feast? Your best bet is to hire a Melbourne Christmas party venue with a minimum spend on food and drinks. This way you’re not spending a single dollar on venue hire, all you need to do is to pay for the meal and the beverages – which you’d normally do anyway, so really sounds like a great deal, doesn’t it? To top it all off, many venues in Melbourne offer special Xmas menus for the season. So then, what’s the cost? Minimum spend rates for private Christmas parties in Melbourne usually start at as little as $1500 for smaller celebrations and may range up to several thousand dollars, depending on what the venue has to offer and the size of your Xmas bash.
  • If you’re keen on BYOB, working with an external caterer or even organising the entire party yourself, the space of your choice will be priced with a hire fee. This amount only covers the cost of using the venue. The usual hire fees for Christmas parties in Melbourne range between $350-$500 per evening, while a full-day hire typically comes up to $6000, depending on the location and the size of the venue.
  • Looking for a quick, convenient and affordable Christmas party option? You can get it all with one of our all-inclusive Christmas party packages. A typical one covers a special Christmas party menu, a choice of drinks and the costs of venue hire. The prices per person usually range between $35 and $85.
