Our Round Up Of Brisbane's Best Christmas Party Venues: 2019 Edit

Jingle yo’ bells

By Dinushka Gunasekara | 17th October 2019

Dear Santa,

This Christmas we want a party venue that will have everyone singing fa la la la la as they jingle all the way through the night! Whether it’s for colleagues, family or friends, no one will be saying bah humbug with these merry and bright locations ready for the most wonderful time of the year!

Brisbane Marriott Hotel | Brisbane City

Like fresh untouched snow, new is so much nicer so celebrate Christmas at the newly renovated Brisbane Marriott Hotel with a festive party everyone will remember! As well as the stunning city and river views, delicious food and excellent service you’d expect at Brisbane Marriott, their packages are designed to include all of the essential elements for a memorable night plus your own personal Event Co-Ordinator to help you make magic. Their private event package offers a three-course sit down lunch or dinner with a gorgeous Christmas tree, a bon-bon for every guest and LED ceiling lighting providing festive fun. Or, have a true blue Aussie Christmas with a sizzling barbecue on M Deck overlooking the iconic Brisbane River and Story Bridge where the Brisbane Marriott will serve up classic favourites like wagyu beef sausages, potato salad, mini pavlovas and lamingtons. Your guests can take the elevator home with special accommodation rates available for anyone attending an evening event, and if you book before October 31, you can enjoy either a complimentary beverage package extension, overnight accommodation prize voucher for two or a Sunday Brunch prize voucher for four in Motion Dining. It really is the season of giving!

Colour your Christmas party red and jade this silly season with an event at Jade Buddha Bar!

Uniquely located with both city and river views over two levels, there’s no venue hire fees so all your dollars can go straight towards delicious food and amazing drinks for your guests. Whether you take your event to the next level at Shadow Lounge, party in a sectioned-off area only metres away from the main bar or hire out the whole Jade Buddha Restaurant for an extravaganza, the dedicated team will ensure you have a jolly good time!

Little Big House | South Bank

Nothing’s better than being home for the holidays, but while the homely atmosphere is perfect for decking the halls, the prep stress before and the messy clean up after can have you feeling like an angry elf. Instead, take your event to Little Big House, which will make you and your guests feel at home, plus their great packages and friendly and attentive staff will ensure a merry and joyous night! In the heart of Brisbane’s premier lifestyle and cultural destination, their South Bank venue will work with you and your needs to create a bespoke function sure to please. Their venue has a number of different festive event spaces along with their popular karaoke room that is available to hire and can cater to groups of up to 25 guests and you can be rest assured there are plenty of Christmas songs in the catalogue. Your personal event planner will help you curate a menu of perfect bites for all your guests whether that is canapés, platters, a buffet or individual meals. Not only is Little Big House all about helping you, they also will have a wishing tree set up that guests can leave gifts under to be given to the local children’s hospital. There’s nothing but good tidings here!

Public Restaurant | Brisbane City

Make your Christmas party Public for festive fun with finesse! Perched above the hustle of Brisbane’s CBD, they are relaunching the restaurant in November with a menu featuring many of their much-loved classics like wagyu brisket, Kentucky fried duck and Koji-aged beef, as well as stunning new flavours inspired by Peruvian cuisine. Their chefs will also be whipping up some seasonal specialities with two Christmas banquets on offer – a ‘Select’ and a ‘Deluxe’ feast – available from November 28 onwards. Both packages will include turkey drumsticks made in the signature Public style, along with delicious Christmas fixings and a unique dessert that will go down a treat with their bespoke Christmas cocktails. A dedicated waiter is available to be booked in their private dining rooms to ensure you receive the highest calibre of service, and from the music to the flowers to the table arrangements, Public will help you every step of the way. If you don’t have an event to go to but still want a bite of the action, Public will be a hosting a ‘Christmas For The Rest Of Us’ event, where their Christmas feast menus and drinks package will be available to book for parties of sizes from one to ten.

Westin | Brisbane City

While Santa gets ready in the North, head to the West for an enticing and elevated Christmas celebration tailored completely to you. The Westin Brisbane is jingling two Christmas packages for your merry function in an urban retreat. The Westin Christmas Cocktail Package on the Nautilus Pool Deck will have your guests enjoying a selection of ten canapés per person in a swim-up pool bar while sipping on a three-hour beverage package. There’s no white Christmas here – a true Australian Christmas is all about embracing the summer so your guests will be munching on a one-hour live BBQ cooking station over stunning views of the Brisbane skyline. For a boujieer shindig, there’s the Westin Christmas Dinner Package in the Westin Ballroom. All good things come in threes, so give your guests plenty of good things with a three course alternate drop-set dinner menu and a three-hour beverage package. Both Westin packages come with bon bons and festive decorations, tea light candles and a handheld microphone so you can spread the Christmas joy loud and clear.
