How to Choose the Perfect Venue for Your Christmas Party

Christmas is coming, and that means it's time to start planning your holiday bash. Whether it's your office Christmas party or a blowout for family and friends, having your annual Christmas party in a local hotel offers you plenty of benefits, from help planning the festivities to a convenient place to stay for those who may have traveled a long way or imbibed in a bit too much Christmas cheer.

At The Hotel Concord, Christmas is our favorite time of year and Christmas parties are our specialty. Our staff is ready to help you plan your party, and we're always happy to answer your questions.

So what should you look for when choosing the perfect venue for your holiday extravaganza? Here are some tips on what to look out for when trying to find the perfect Christmas party venue that's right for you.

Book Adequate Space For Your Christmas Party

Imagine your group squashed into the back room of a restaurant that's crammed chairs and tables everywhere. You're uncomfortable, knocking knees and elbows with your neighbor, while the wait staff is bumping into you every time they bring the next course. Everyone has experienced one of those parties. While the food may be outstanding, eating is uncomfortable, claustrophobic, and you can't genuinely enjoy the event. Choosing a venue that offers plenty of space to comfortably mingle, enjoy your meal, and even dance a little is one of the essential elements for a successful party.

Here at The Hotel Concord, we have two function rooms available that are perfect for small to medium-sized social events, like Christmas parties, weddings, and special occasions. We're located in the heart of historic downtown Concord, New Hampshire, and offer covered parking for our guests. Both function rooms offer large windows that let in plenty of natural light and provide downtown views. Our concierge can help you with planning your event. We offer a variety of food and beverage options and can meet almost any equipment needs.

The New Hampshire Room has a capacity of 225 people for a party or 136 for a seated event. The Concord Room can accommodate 106 for a cocktail party or 49 for a seated event.

Traditional Christmas Parties, or Something More Original

Are you planning a traditional Christmas party for the family complete with a roast turkey dinner, wassail, and caroling, or cocktails, a buffet dinner and dancing for the annual office Christmas Bash? The key is knowing your audience and then working with the hotel staff to create the perfect atmosphere, design the right menu, and hire the band.

At The Hotel Concord, our team is always ready to assist you with planning the perfect Holiday party. We'll help you design the menu from the variety of delicious options we offer, help you find the classic band, and set up and decorate the room with you. Our goal is to help you host the perfect party for family and friends or your most significant clients.

Do Your Guests Have Any Special Requirements

A popular venue will work to accommodate all their guests. When organizing a group event, you can count on having to accommodate various dietary requirements, allergies, and restrictions. Don't risk disappointing your guests or leaving them hungry. Ask if they have any dietary restrictions, and make sure the venue or caterer can accommodate their needs.

We offer a variety of tempting options for catering your party for some of Concord's top dining establishments. Just let us know what your guests would prefer, and we'll work with you to design a menu that's inclusive for all of your guests.

Consider The Logistics When Booking A Venue

The logistics are an essential detail when planning Christmas parties. Make sure your venue is conveniently located for your guests. Make sure it's a practical option. For example, does it include parking if it's an urban venue? Is it accessible to other transportation like limousine service, cabs, Uber or airports? Is the event space fully accessible for the less able?
