Guests Reviews of Christmas Party Venues on Tagvenue

Daphne Lok
Booked Entire Venue at Mekong
Food: Good value for money and well presented. Able to cater for our group of around 65 without any hitches. Drinks: About what you'd expect for Sydney. We selected top quality but mid ranged priced wines and they were awesome. TV, MIC and music (all provided with no extra charge)- all contributed to the atmosphere and we were able to play some games. The team had a really enjoyable night out. Ambiance including decor and set up was amazing.
Sarah Lee

Loved how flexible and easy Belinda was to works with. No request was too difficult and Belinda made organising a last minute Christmas Party much easier than it should be.
Victoria Bowen
Booked Artasian at The ArtHouse Hotel
We held our end of year party here and were not disappointed. Event management was easy, thorough and uncomplicated. Food was excellent and plentiful. Duck pizza was a favourite. Beautiful room with good art and pleasing aesthetics. Lots of comfortable seating for the older employees. I would definitely recommend for a corporate event.
Aisha Stuart
Booked Naughty Corner at Verandah
The space was funky and fantastic, surrounded by the rest of the pub really made the party buzz. We were also allowed there until late which was fantastic if you're looking for a great cocktail space that has both an indoor and outdoor area. Saskia the venue manager was incredibly helpful and accommodating throughout the whole organisation of the event.
