The 5 best unique Christmas party venues in Birmingham

Itchy jumpers. Dad jokes from supermarket crackers. A medley of beige finger food, with a few select Quality Streets scattered around like hidden gems. Chris Rea crooning in the background as you all squeeze together for another office pic.

1. A unique Christmas party venue that’s full of festive cheer: The Glee Club, Birmingham


What do Santa’s little helpers learn at school? The elf-abet.

Okay, bad joke aside, this venue is a right hoot. As you’d expect from the name, The Glee Club is home to live comedy, music, and cabaret shows in Birmingham.

The well-worn black stage (backed by an unmissable “Glee” sign) has been graced by plenty of comedians. Their weekly line-up is anything from group comedy shows and tours, poetry nights, and Christmas comedy specials to a drag ABBA medley.

Regular events aside, this venue has three spaces to hire – the Main Room, Studio Room, and Ground Floor, with their Main Room holding up to 600 standing guests (and 400 seated). It’s yours to do what you want with it, but The Glee Club team is on hand to help.

Now, the stage is set. You’re up next.

2. Dine at this venue for a unique Christmas dinner party: Craft Pod, About Dining Birmingham


Dine by the city centre canal in a Craft Pod. Coming from the Birmingham restaurant About Dining, is their garden area, Craft, where you’ll find their summerhouse and their Pods, which fit up to 8 guests.

The private pods feel like a world of their own, each one has its own music system, air conditioning and central heating for a Christmas party that suits you.

Maybe it’s the festivities but they do feel a bit like futuristic Christmas puddings (a "Christmas podding" if you will).

With dishes like mushroom and truffle risotto and a choice of wine, gin and cocktails, it’s like Christmas dinner but different.

3. Play Pac-Man at this unique Christmas party venue: NQ64 Birmingham


Mortal Kombat? Pac-Man? Golden Axe? GameCube, anyone? Relive your arcade dreams at the NQ64 Arcade Bar in Birmingham. In this neon-paint splattered intergalactic-style venue, travel back in time to the 80s and find nostalgic games like RoboCop, Street Fighter and TNMT.

Leave your coins at home, it’s tokens only here. Sip on one of NQ64’s pun-filled games-themed drinks. How does a glass of Donkey Kolada or Sweet Fighter sound while battling it out to win?

For a Christmas party that’s a little more fun that your typical office do, this venue has private room hire for up to 80 guests.

4. A unique Christmas party venue that’s out of this world: OTHERWORLD VR, Birmingham


Fancy something a little different? A Christmas island holiday without actually having to leave the city?

OTHERWORLD VR is essentially virtual reality that lets you experience all four seasons, explore a magical garden or survive a zombie apocalypse (you know, if that’s your thing).

Their immersive tech means that you’ll not only see but feel this virtual experience – whether that’s wind or sun, you’re truly in a world of your own.

Explore on your own or with up to 14 other players, who can see what you see through their own virtual avatars.

Drink while you VR at any one of their self-serve drink taps. Fun and festive times are on the horizon.

5. Be transported to the alps at this unique Christmas party venue: Heidi’s Bier Bar


When you first walk into Heidi’s, there are a few things you notice. The wood interiors, walls fitted with logs and decorated with skis, the snowboards and rackets give off a mismatched rustic vibe.

Then there are the disco balls, the old ski lift and the ski shot glass holders. It’s a lot like coming back to your cabin after a long day of skiing – sit back and relax in a booth with a pint or a Jägerbomb.

With 3 rooms for private hire, this venue can host up to 1100 guests, so best for any big Christmas blowouts. Have an impromptu photo session in the photo-booth or maybe a game (or two).

It’s Oktoberfest all year round, even at Christmas.
