At this time of year, you may have already begun to plan for your staff Christmas party. This is a perfect opportunity to relax and get to know those you work with every day.
Belfast is constantly buzzing with activity and excitement, with something different to be found every night of the week. The city hosts an abundance of beautiful, unique spaces that can be rented out for corporate events or special occasions.
We here at Glandore have put together a list of some of our favourite spaces that would make an ideal venue for your company’s Christmas party.
1. Belfast Castle
Boasting blissful parkland views in a romantic woodland setting, Belfast Castle is definitely a spot to impress your guests. Less than 20 minutes from the city centre this is an ideal location to bring your guests without bringing them too far away from home.
The site has great conference and event spaces which can hold a party of up to 200 people, ideal for the larger corporate Christmas shin-dig. The castle’s own Cellar Restaurant plates up delicious, local cuisine for hungry visitors which can then be enjoyed in the decadent Haslam function room next door.
Belfast Castle is typically in high demand at this time of year, so our advice is to act fast.
2. Titanic Belfast
This event space is the epitome of elegance. Over the past number of years since its inception, Titanic Belfast has become a primary hub for culture and events within Belfast.
Nestled in the heart of the Titanic Quarter, it offers a variety of different spaces and venues including an art gallery, conference rooms and event halls.
Their top floor venue, The Bridge, offers a rooftop view of Belfast City and is perfect for small, more intimate affairs. This would be the perfect spot for smaller companies to make the best use of their Christmas budget.
3. The Grand Opera House
If you’re looking for something different, or to make a statement with your venue then the Grand Opera House nestled in the heart of the city centre is an ideal location.
The Grand Opera House not only hosts spectacular theatre productions, but also memorable boardroom meetings. If you’re there for pleasure rather than business, they can also provide you with a brilliant corporate hospitality package, making sure that your guests are catered for as best as they possibly can.
They also offer a specific Christmas package running from 1-16 December. This package includes a four-course meal, a live band and a top-class DJ, making it the perfect mix for your Christmas party.
4. AM:PM Cabaret Supperclub
If you’re looking for something a bit different for your Christmas party why not try a themed event?
The AM:PM Supperclub is a wonderfully charming restaurant/cocktail bar located within the city centre which harks back to the glitz and glamour of 1920’s decor. The best thing about this location is that it can cater to either large or small parties.
Their new cocktail lounge can seat up to 60 people, while their swanky supper club can hold nearly 200. Throw on your dapper suits and flapper dresses to really get into the swing of things.
5. Life Centre
The Life Centre is a beautifully restored space in the heart of Belfast City. Previously an industrial warehouse, the Life Centre’s roots are firmly planted in Belfast’s history. Today, the venue offers innovative event spaces and a 300-seat auditorium for their customers.
This space provides you with the perfect opportunity to put your own stamp on the occasion. The revenue from events held in the Life Centre helps fund their LifeReach programme which is an inner city charity helping the community.
Booking this venue is a perfect way to give back while also hosting and enjoying your own Christmas party.
Here at Glandore, we believe in helping our members achieve a healthy work-life balance by offering access to a wellness programme, frequent network events and social gatherings.
