Our expert team of party planners has picked out the best and most exclusive North West Party Venues. Exclusive spaces to suit all shapes and sizes of Christmas or New Year party.
Enjoy the Finest Dining in Manchester
Firstly, if you have a smaller team then why not treat them to a dinner to remember at one of Manchester’s exclusive dining spots. Some of which have private dining rooms to hire.
Amid a burgeoning food and drink scene in the city is Mana, the first restaurant in Manchester to be awarded a Michelin Star for over 40 years. Set amongst a light and airy dining space, Mana has an area for groups of up to six next to the open plan kitchen. It’s not private dining as such. However, you will watch on as the chefs prepare the best produce from the British Isles prepared from its original form every day. Its menu is described as ‘intriguing, original and very exciting’.
Over the other side of town at Spinningfields, The Ivy offers three private dining spaces. The Dalton Suite, Geisha Room or Skylight Terrace. They can accommodate anything from 20 to 50 guests. Each serving tempting selections from the three restaurant menus amongst flamboyantly beautiful interiors.
Set to be a new jewel in Manchester’s crown is Tom Kerridge’s new venture, The Bull and Bear at the Stock Exchange Hotel. Housed on the former trading floor of the historic grade II listed building, complete with spectacular domed ceiling, the restaurant serves up ‘refined British comfort food’. And it’s proving a real hit with customers. In addition to The Bull & Bear restaurant, Tom and his team will also be overseeing The Bank. This offers private dining experiences for up to 14 people. And The Vault. This caters for private events for up to 120 people. We’re sure it’ll be Manchester’s hottest venue this festive season, so you’ll need to be quick!
Have a Night at the Museum in Liverpool
For a Christmas or New Year event with a difference, host an altogether more cultured Christmas party in a setting steeped in history. Three iconic venues. The Museum of Liverpool. The Liverpool Maritime Museum. The World Museum in Liverpool. Each make for a unique party backdrop where guests may learn about the city’s rich cultural diversity as they dance the night away.
Opt for views of the Royal Albert Dock and Liverpool Waterfront at Merseyside Maritime Museum. Or admire the historic surroundings of the Dr Martin Luther King Jr Building. You could even dine with Blackler’s Santa at the Museum of Liverpool.
Live the High Life in Cheshire
Christmas parties don’t just have to take place in the busy city centres. Why not head to one of Cheshire’s many stately homes, spectacular hotels or natural beauty spots for a party with a difference this year.
Magnificent National Trust properties are something that Cheshire has in abundance. You could spend this festive season celebrating in the impressive surroundings of Quarry Bank Mill, Dunham Massey or the mansion at Tatton Park. We have staged a magnificent ‘bierfest’ party at Tatton Park; transforming the house!
The county also has many grand hotels, often listed architectural gems set in acres of beautiful countryside. Choose from Rookery Hall in Nantwich. A unique country house built in 1816, complete with a French Chateau Tower and commanding views of the countryside. Or the luxurious and award-winning Georgian Manor House at Mottram Hall. Both of which have surprisingly affordable party packages with dinner, drinks and dining included.
Find Enchantment in the Forest at Delamere or Knowsley
Decked out in thousands of sparkling fairy lights with warming firepits and cosy furs, a magical pop up restaurant in a tipi in the midst of Delamere Forest could be the alternative Christmas party venue you’ve been searching for. You’ll enjoy five courses of fine dining cooked by the most talented of chefs. It is accompanied by live acoustic music from local artist Charlie Reader to help you get into the Christmas spirit.
Finally, Knowsley Safari Park is the location for a secret Russian Cossack encampment. This comes complete with snow-clad pine trees, ice bar, Tsar’s Palace and St Basil’s Cathedral backdrop. https://www.officechristmas.co.uk/christmas-party/liverpool-knowsley-safari-park/
