Nothing screams the spirit of Christmas like the faceless corporate entity.

We’ve picked, packed and wrapped our favourite corporate Christmas party venues in London. You’ll want to RSVP to this one.

OXO 2 London Corporate Christmas Party

1. Celebrate Christmas in an iconic London landmark: OXO 2

Waterloo, London

Trust us when we say this venue will make everything gravy.

OXO2 is a contemporary event space on the second floor of the OXO Tower on London’s South Bank. With a capacity of 400 standing guests and 200 seated, OXO2 boasts panoramic views of London’s iconic skyline, including St Paul’s Cathedral and Somerset House, through floor-length windows and a balcony.

The 537 square metres of gallery-style space, abundant with natural light, can be customised to bring your vision to life. Conveniently located near Waterloo and Blackfriars Stations, OXO2 transforms into a snowy paradise during the festive season, complete with captivating lighting effects and mystical-themed entertainment.

2. Old Street, new ideas this Christmas: Fare

Old Street, London

Fare brings a mercifully lackadaisical approach to Christmas celebrations.

Occupying the corner of Old Street, this restaurant and bar gives striking views across the thoroughfare, showing off the brutalist Barbican in its best possible light.

If the buzz of Shoreditch and Farringdon isn’t enough, the roster of well-made negronis and festive snacks might give you a reason to linger as you make your corporate Christmas party rounds.

3. A corporate Christmas party venue fit for royalty: Brunswick House

Vauxhall, London

Gold chandeliers. Bronze-ish candelabras. Exposed brick walls. Lived-in furniture. Fireplaces to keep you toasty. Antiques in each room, the odd statue to keep the conversation going. And a piano, because of course, there would be a piano.

These are just a few of the things you notice when you first visit Brunswick House, the Grade II listed Georgian mansion.

Originally built for the Duke of Brunswick, Charles William Ferdinand, this mansion is now home to a cocktail bar, restaurant, cellar – and corporate Christmas parties aplenty.

For a Christmas party to remember, dine, drink and dance in any of the private rooms (which seat up to 110 guests and 250 standing) or maybe step outside onto their leafy terrace area for a bit of fresh air.

4. A grand corporate Christmas party venue: Dartmouth House

Mayfair, London

Situated on 37 Charles Street, right in the centre of Mayfair is the historic venue, Dartmouth House.

With its lofty ballrooms, grand halls, and rooms that feel like they’re lifted out of a Bridgerton set, this looks like the right place for your corporate Christmas party.

Whether it’s a sophisticated soirée or something a little more uptempo, there’s quite literally, room for it all. Dine and dance the night away – do it banquet-style or break off into smaller groups for something more intimate.

For Christmas menus, expect a three-course meal that looks like this: turkey with cranberry stuffing, Hasselback potatoes and roasted carrots, figgy pudding and brandy custard, alongside veggie and vegan options.

A Christmas party in a mansion? Sounds like a plan.

5. Start the festive season on a high at this corporate Christmas party venue: Searcys at The Gherkin

Aldgate, London

Maybe it’s the lights on each and every street. The faint sound of carols and Christmas Top 10s. Or maybe it’s the smell of sugar and spices and the promise of something delicious. The hustle, bustle and rustle of shopping bags and their owners. Whatever it is, Christmas never really loses that magical feeling.

Take the lift to the top of the Gherkin to find Searcys at The Gherkin, the restaurant and bar serving up British dishes and drinks aplenty.

With breathtaking views on their side (seriously, wait till sunrise) and specialised Christmas packages, a corporate Christmas party has never been so exciting.

Hire out the entire bar or restaurant, or for something a bit more intimate, host a Christmas party with up to 50 guests in one of their private dining rooms. How’s that for a magical start to the festive period?

6. A whole football stadium for your work Christmas party: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Tottenham, London

Few people can claim to have had their work Christmas party at one of North London's most iconic grounds (yes we hedging our bets here, call it cowardice, we call it self-preservation). The Tottenham ground has an astounding number of great spaces to book up for a true Xmas get-together.

From pitch-side dinners and in-tunnel drinks to renting the whole stadium, every type of corporate Christmas party can be accommodated. The amazing staff are on hand to ensure everything kicks off without a scratch, kick or handball.

With well-stocked bars and circulating food keeping everyone happy, all you have to do is watch out for irate rival fans trying to pretend they're not having a good time.

7. A beautiful converted dairy factory for your Victorian Christmas dreams: Ministry Venues - Borough

Borough, London

What could feel more Christmassy than a venue sprung from the very Dickensian setting of Victorian Industry?

Presenting Ministry Venues - Borough, a true cracker of venue in the heart of Southwark. The converted dairy factory may have history in its exposed brick walls, but the furnishings are stylishly modern. Take the gorgeous copper bar, which proves the perfect setting for some festive drinks with co-workers.

Whilst we can't guarantee a December snow, we can tell you there are few better places to see the flakes float groundwards than from the beautiful Crittall-style windows.

Expect a standing capacity of 400 and cosy surroundings for your guests to relax and get into the festive spirit.

Wembley Park, London

Drum roll please…

Located in the heart of Wembley Park, The Drum gives you the experience of being inside the bane of every conservative neighbour’s life.

The double-height circular space lends itself to an imaginative event planner, with the options for both natural daylight and a darkened space proving perfect for all manner of Christmas parties. The whopping 850-person capacity space gives you no excuses not to invite everyone from the office.

Twickenham, London

Party like a VIP – well, for one day, you really are. The Members Lounge at Twickenham Stadium welcomes guests for dinners, conferences, and you guessed it, corporate Christmas parties.

Although the interior does border on functional, that is easily customisable and the biggest attraction, the pitch, clearly steals the show.

Party your way with the suite’s own bar and DJ. With seating for up to 130 people, you could be dining to the sounds of ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ in no time.

RSVP to one of the most exclusive Christmas parties of the year.

10. A corporate Christmas party venue with great city views: Cucumber, Sea Containers Events

Southwark, London

Nothing beats a really good Christmas dinner. It’s every bit as heart-warming and filling as you hope it would be. From the carved turkey and homemade roast potatoes to the generous helpings of gravy. Also, let’s not forget the best bit – the humble (we would argue, underrated) roast veg. What’s your favourite festive veg? Carrots? Leeks? Parsnips? How about cucumbers?

Named after its green bar, Cucumber is a name, and place, that we think we’ll be seeing more of.

With branded pillars, modern furniture, overhead lighting and a pretty inoffensive colour scheme, where the Sea Containers Events space really comes into its own is with the floor-to-ceiling windows.

Look over the city as you celebrate your team’s wins at this year’s Christmas party, and with room for 100 seated guests and 200 standing, just remember to make sure you have enough champagne.

How to hire a corporate Christmas party venue in London

Organising a corporate Christmas party in London is a fantastic way to celebrate the festive season with colleagues and show appreciation for their hard work throughout the year. London, with its wide range of venues, offers countless options for hosting a memorable corporate event. This guide will provide detailed steps and considerations for hiring the perfect corporate Christmas party venue in London, ensuring a smooth planning process and a successful event.

Define your event requirements

Start by defining the purpose and goals of your corporate Christmas party in London. Are you aiming to boost team morale, reward employees, or entertain clients? Clarifying your objectives will help shape the event's style and atmosphere.

Guest list

Estimate the number of attendees. A precise guest count is crucial for selecting a venue that can accommodate everyone comfortably and for planning catering and seating arrangements.

Date and time

Choose a date and time for your party. December is a busy month, so booking early is essential. Consider whether a weekday evening or a weekend date is more suitable for your team.

Research potential venues

Consider the convenience of the venue's location. Central London venues are easily accessible by public transport, which is a significant advantage for attendees. However, venues in the outer boroughs might offer more space and better value for money.

Venue size and capacity

Ensure the venue can comfortably accommodate your guest list. Check the maximum capacity and whether the space can be configured to suit your event's needs, including seating, mingling areas, and a dance floor.


Select a venue that matches the desired atmosphere of your corporate Christmas party. Whether you prefer a sophisticated hotel ballroom, a trendy bar, a historic building, or a unique venue like a museum, the venue's style should align with your event’s theme and company culture.

Facilities and amenities

Ensure the venue offers essential facilities, such as ample seating, a dance floor, high-quality sound and lighting systems, heating, clean restrooms, and cloakroom services. Depending on your event, you might also need a stage, kitchen facilities, or parking.

Budget considerations

Understand the costs associated with hiring the venue. Venues may charge a flat hire fee, a per-person rate, or have a minimum spend requirement on food and drinks. Make sure you know what's included in the price.

Catering and beverages

Menu options

Most venues offer various catering options, from formal sit-down dinners to buffet-style meals or canapés. Discuss menu choices with the venue, ensuring they can cater to dietary restrictions and preferences, including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and other specific needs.

Drinks packages

Inquire about drinks packages, including options for an open bar, drink vouchers, or a cash bar. Some venues offer festive cocktails or themed drinks that can add a special touch to your event.

AV and technical requirements

Ensure the venue can support your entertainment needs, including sound systems, lighting, projectors, and screens. Check if there are any additional costs for using these facilities.

Licences and permits

Ensure the venue holds the necessary licences for your event, such as a licence to serve alcohol and permits for live entertainment. Some areas may have noise restrictions or other regulations that could affect your party.


Confirm that the venue has public liability insurance. It’s also advisable to consider event insurance to cover any unforeseen circumstances.


Ensure the venue is accessible for all guests, including those with disabilities. Check for ramps, accessible restrooms, and suitable parking facilities.

Transportation and parking

Consider how guests will travel to and from the venue. Venues with good public transport links are ideal. Additionally, check for nearby parking facilities for guests who may drive.

Final preparations

On-the-day coordination

Designate someone to be the main point of contact on the day of the event. This person will liaise with the venue staff, coordinate the setup, and handle any issues that arise.

Hiring a corporate Christmas party venue in London requires careful planning and consideration of various factors, from the type of event and budget to catering, entertainment, and logistics. By following this comprehensive guide, you can ensure that your festive celebration is a resounding success, leaving your colleagues with cherished memories of a magical Christmas event.
