Christmas Party Venues Hire Guide

As some of you might suspect, Bristol is very well prepared for the holiday season and has a ton of Christmas party venues to choose from. Naturally, you’ve got the ever-popular restaurant and bar combo, as well as a variety of lounge spaces for drinks, mingling and a bit of dancing. There are also a lot more unique options that take advantage of Bristol’s diversity. How about hosting your Christmas party at an aquarium, sports stadium, a ZOO, or even an aircraft hanger? All of these can be found in Bristol. To top it all off, you can choose from a wide range of large ballrooms that are ready to host a party of any size you can bring together! 

After hearing that you might be wondering, where would I start looking to find some of these places? A good point to start your search would be around Baldwin Street. Going both west and east along it, you’ll find an excellent selection of some of the best spaces Bristol has to offer. This area is home to both classic venues with no frills and some of the more quirky varieties, including. You might also have a closer look at Wine Street as you head east along the park towards Broadmead for some of the larger venues in the district. Be sure to also take a gander around Arno’s Vale, because why not combine your booking with a trip to the Christmas Market?

Figuring the price range for your Christmas party booking tends to vary a bit with size, location and amenities offered. Here are a few figures to get you started:

  • Often you’ll find Bristol venues operating on a minimum spend model, where you pay nothing for the space but agree to spend a set amount on the menu. Generally, you’ll be looking at something around £350 to £2000 total. The most versatile pricing structure, you’ll find this used very frequently at a variety of businesses. 
  • If you’re not interested in that, you could always opt for a place with a flat hire fee and then add food and drinks on as normal. These fees tend to go for somewhere between £50 - £600 and are most common for restaurants and bars around Bristol.
  • Probably the most popular option for Christmas parties in Bristol is a straight per person pricing table, with most charging between £30-50 per guest. It’s always a good way to book if you’re not sure how many people will actually show up. Most commonly, this option is used by places that have a fixed menu or just serve drinks and snacks for mingling. 

As always, try to book as far in advance as you can, as prices tend to rise the closer we get to the holiday season!
