In today’s edition of the Battle of the Christmas Party Venues [Sydney Chapter] we take the battle to the high seas, with the pub and the charter yacht going head to head.
Before we begin however I feel we need to go through the rules, because without them this article could quickly turn into a pub crawl and a leisurely swim in Sydney Harbour – not that there’s anything wrong with that of course ;)
- The First rule of The Sydney Christmas Party Venue Battle Club is that we don’t talk about The Sydney Christmas Party Venue Battle Club.
- The second rule states that the first rule is flexible – and thank goodness for that because today I wanted to talk about it. Like a lot.
Christmas Party Venues in Sydney - The Memory Test.
The first thing to consider when looking for your next work Christmas party venue is how memorable an occasion it needs to be. Is this year significant for the company in some way? Has the Office moved or new staff been appointed that would necessitate making this 2015 end of year Christmas party something that should be unique and amazing?
If you answered yes to the above questions, or you just love bandwagons and want to jump on then I would definitely recommend Sydney Harbour as the backdrop to your totally amazing Office Christmas Party for the main reason that it is quite possibly the most memorable backdrop Sydney has to offer!
Do you want to host your office Christmas party at a pub somewhere in the city, where perhaps maybe you might get a rooftop that affords you views of the building across the street. Maybe you even decided to spend big and have glimpses of the harbour!?
Ooooh harbour views. Lucky you.
Alternatively you could choose a venue that is floating on said Harbour, meaning that no matter where you go, the views out the window and from the many decks is, well it’s breathtaking that’s what it is!
Alcohol and Christmas Parties. To BYO or to not BYO.
Another important element to consider when organising the work Christmas party is whether you want to organise the Alcohol or not.
Nearly all land based Sydney venues are pub or club based, meaning alcohol is provided to you and your employees exclusively. This is fantastic for many, but to go back to the whole idea of your work Christmas party being memorable- how can this happen if the drinks being offered are your usual run of the mill tap beers and imported spirits? Providing your own drinks not only saves you considerable money in the long run* - it also guarantees your Christmas party stands out as one to be remembered.
Let’s face it - buying a case of wine is a LOT cheaper than buying it buy the bottle, or heaven forbid - by the glass?!
