Tip's on picking the ideal office Christmas party venue in Edinburgh
For a small city, Edinburgh is jam-packed with exciting, traditional, modern and undiscovered venues. As a city it's most well known for the Edinburgh fringe festival which is globally renowned. During the month of August venues come to life. Churches turn into comedy haunts, Universities into Broadway, but don't forget; if the city has so many venues to offer then, they still have these exciting venues on offer for the rest of the year! With the pick of the bunch here are a few things to think about when selecting the ideal office Christmas party venue in Edinburgh.
1.) Location - Wherever you are in Edinburgh there is a number of fantastic venues to choose from but you want to make sure you choose the right area that works for you and your colleagues. If you want to be central, near to Princes Street you should be looking around New Town, George Street, and Edinburgh's West End. You then have Leith on the Northern edge of the city which has always been known as the city's port, but now also boasts a number of fantastic venue's ideal for an office Christmas party. Or, you take your colleagues to party in Edinburgh's impressive Old Town. Use the Royal Mile as your focal point and work from there. An area of town steeped in history and home of the impressive Edinburgh castle also offer's some great venues, particularly down in the Grass markets, an are that during the festival is alive with party goers!
2.) Venue type - Before you start enquiring with venues you need to establish what sort of venue you are looking for. This will be decided once you and your team have locked down an idea on what you want the office Christmas party to entail. Do you want a drink and canapé gathering, are you looking for a sit-down dinner, would you want music or a dance floor where the party can continue into the early hours, do you want everything to happen in one room or would you like a number of smaller rooms where people can move about... There are many elements to consider so make sure you have a clear idea of what you are looking for before you start the search!
3.) Dry vs Wet hire - Essentially, are you looking for a venue to provide everything from food and drink down to the crackers and party hats. Many venues will start putting together Christmas packages in the summer which are fully inclusive so you don't have to think about anything other than paying the bill and turning up! You may however prefer a dry hire, or blank canvas, venue that allows you to bring your own drink, caterers, decorations and such like. When you are doing your research for your office Christmas party venue be sure to consider this.
