Christmas Party Venues Hire Guide

Almost any type of venue can be a good choice for a Christmas party, depending on how you decorate it and the vibe you're going for! However, some of them offer something extra special to the festive season. Here are a few of our favourites in Manchester:

Popular Christmas Party Venues:

  • Quaint Pubs: Traditional English pubs exude warmth and coziness, making them perfect for intimate gatherings. With their rustic decor and roaring fireplaces, they create a festive ambiance that's hard to resist.
  • Historic Venues: Iconic landmarks and historic buildings offer a unique backdrop for Christmas celebrations. Whether it's a grand hall, a museum, or a stately home, these venues add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any party.
  • Rooftop Bars: For those looking to elevate their Christmas party experience, rooftop bars offer stunning views of the city skyline illuminated by twinkling lights. Sipping cocktails and enjoying panoramic vistas create a memorable holiday experience.
  • Cosy Restaurants: Chic restaurants with intimate dining spaces provide the perfect setting for a festive feast. With delectable menus and festive decor, these venues ensure a culinary journey that delights the senses.
  • Blank Canvas Event Spaces: Versatile event spaces allow for creativity in decoration and theme customization. From trendy lofts to modern ballrooms, these venues offer flexibility to tailor the party to your preferences and accommodate both small and large gatherings.

Christmas Party Ideas:

  • If you’re after an alternative holiday party, try searching in the Northern Quarter. Event venues there are as unique as the area itself – a perfect option if you want a Christmas party with an interesting vibe.
  • Manchester has a rich culinary scene. How about going for a Christmas dinner party? Explore the best Mancunian holiday restaurants with private dining rooms, perfect both for corporate and private occasions. Plenty of venues offer special Christmas party menus, too.
  • Home to big bands such as Oasis, The Smiths and Bee Gees, Manchester is known for being an exceptionally musical city. No wonder karaoke Christmas parties are a hot trend here! It’s a brilliant occasion to sing your heart out to both classical carols as well as today’s top hits.
  • Themed Christmas parties are now a thing in Manchester. Need inspiration? Think of a 20’s style Great Gatsby winter evening in the town or an ugly Christmas sweater bash. Also, movie themes (Home Alone, Grinch) never get old – and if you’re after something eccentric, we suggest The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Organise a Christmas Party in Manchester – Tips & Tricks:

  • The earlier, the better – the best Christmas party venues in Manchester book out months in advance. The sooner you decide to start looking, the more choices you'll have. It’s better to have a few potential event dates in mind, too – this increases your chances of finding what you want. Remember to send out the invitations a few weeks in advance, too.
  • Good things come in packages – as mentioned above, many of Manchester's party spaces have special offers during the holiday time. Christmas party packages usually consist of special (often bespoke) festive food and drink menus. Sometimes decor, entertainment and event manager services are included as well. And the best part? By choosing Christmas party packages you can save a lot – we know how to find the best deals in Manchester!
  • Music can make it or break it – a fun Christmas playlist is essential for a successful night. For laid-back office Christmas parties, play upbeat holiday pop songs, while for a fine dining experience, a soft Christmas jazz backdrop will work better. Remember to make your set long enough, too – don’t bore your guests with listening to the same short mixtape over and over again. If you don’t feel like creating your own playlist, you might want to hire a DJ specialising in Christmas parties – they know how to please the crowd.
  • Decorations create the atmosphere – there are some things that Christmas can not go without. They are part of tradition that we just cannot ignore. What does every Christmas party need to build a true Christmas atmosphere? Some Christmas lights, a mistletoe, a door wreath, themed napkins and tablecloths, and of course, you shouldn’t forget about the Christmas Tree!
  • Convenient location – when organising a Christmas party in Manchester, choose your intended location carefully. The venue should be somewhere convenient for all the guests, such as close to public transport hubs or with ample parking.

Guests Reviews of Christmas Party Venues on Tagvenue

Emma H.
Booked Coconut Cabana at Tiki Hideaway Manchester
I was trying to arrange some kind of Christmas party, with no real budget and an unknown number of guests, all very last minute. Heather was very helpful and responsive throughout the booking and right up until the day itself. The bar staff on the day were very friendly and helpful.
Lisa G.
Booked Chef's Table at Manchester235 Casino
Went above and beyond for a member of staff with a gluten intolerance. Staff were really polite and attentive. Fabulous Christmas night out
Mrs M.
Booked Arch 2 at Revolution Deansgate Locks
Our Venue was the Loft on Oxford Road which we had our private party on Friday 9th December 2022. Fantastic party and well organised from start to finish. Molly and the team were brilliant and they looked after us throughout the night. Would highly recommend for a party venue anytime of the year. We'll definitely be back.
Jemma B.
Booked Exclusive Venue Hire at The Fitzgerald
Best venue we've had for our roaring twenties Christmas party! The room is ambient and quirky. The bar staff were fabulous and the food was so good for a buffet. Everyone was so happy with the service and food quality. Thank you for having us.
Booked Basement Bar at Foundry Project
We needed a room not too big and not too poky. The room was perfect. The food was excellent (we ordered too much). Drinks packages were very reasonable given the location. Our hostess Taymar was amazing, and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely book for any future events.
Carissa N.
Booked Coworking Lounge at Whitworth Locke Hotel Manchester
The venue went above and beyond to make sure our Christmas Party was a smashing success. I can not thank them enough for all of the help and support that they have given me with the planning.

From the moment we arrived the team were amazing! The drinks were waiting for us so the party could start to mingle. Downstairs was all laid out and I was welcomed by Pippa who then introduced me to the rest of the team. I can not fault anything during the evening and my whole party enjoyed the evening from start to finish! All of the food was served to perfection and tasted amazing
