‘Tis The Season: Planning Office Christmas Parties in Liverpool
Yes, we know it’s only September and our summer suntan is still fading, but if you’re planning office Christmas parties in Liverpool it needs to be on your agenda now.
The office Christmas party is the social highlight of the working year for many of us, as well as an opportunity for management to let staff know that they are appreciated and valued. It’s an chance for everyone to let their hair down, to reward hard work and to motivate teams for the coming year.
Get it wrong or don’t make the effort and you’ll likely be on your employee’s naughty list for some time. Remember, nothing screams afterthought more than squeezing a team in the local pub because you left it too late and all the good spots were booked up.
Christmas Parties in Liverpool
Fear not though, Liverpool offers a wealth of venues, activities and accommodation that you can snap up if you act quickly now, from delicious dining to festive frivolities. Take a look below for ideas that will suit all tastes and budgets
Best for a posh Christmas party
For a refined Christmas celebration, why not enjoy a ‘Merry & White Christmas’ at Marco Pierre White Wheeler’s of St James’s? The original Wheeler’s restaurant was established in 1856 and was lauded as the ‘world’s oldest and finest fish brand’ – specialising in seafood and exquisite dining, there are festive lunch and dinner menus, which also feature meat and vegetarian dishes to make it accessible to all.
Best for relaxed festive dining
For a less formal, but no less indulgent option, consider the offering from the team at Red’s True Barbecue – a bin lid of smoky, meaty goodness that will satisfy even the heartiest of appetites – there’s even a special festive lunch menu on the way!
Best for team building
Want your Christmas do to be about more than the food and drink? Why not take your team to Breakout Liverpool, a series of escape rooms that you and your colleagues will have to work together to break out of (as the name suggests). Create teams and introduce and incentive for the winners to make it competitive.
If, on the other hand, you want to mix food, drinks and team fun, book in a session at Ghetto Golf in Cains Brewery Village. You can drink on the way round the crazy golf course and celebrate completing it with street food from Apocalypse Cow.
Best for dancing on tables
If your team prefer partying to eating, why not take them to Bongo’s Bingo Pantomime season? For a more outlandish Christmas event (and it really isn’t for the faint hearted) the famously madcap extravaganza takes place through December and is this year themed around the musical, Grease, with special celebrity guests expected. You can book here, but be quick, dates are selling out fast!
Best for Christmas dinner with a twist
Let’s face it, most of us will be having traditional festive fare more than once over the break, so why not book something a little different for the office Christmas party? Revolution de Cuba in the Albert Dock offers a tantalising Cuban Christmas menu, Barton Rouge will provide and Indian twist for festive celebrations and and Wahaca will be adding a Mexican flavour to Christmas, with Turkey Tacos and Mince Pie Empanadas.
Best for a party with a view
Host a Christmas party with a spectacular view at Liverpool Museums’ Museum of Liverpool or Maritime Museum, both which have spaces to hire that overlook Liverpool’s stunning waterfront. If you’re looking for a celebration in a grand setting, there’s also the World Museum on William Brown Street. Party packages can be booked for mid-November onwards, you can download a brochure here.
Whatever your party preference, your team will certainly appreciate you providing a place for them to retire to at the end of the night, so why not take a look at our luxury apartments in Liverpool? Our team is happy to advise on the best locations, you can contact us on email@example.com
