Christmas party venues that won’t break the bank

Right now, as the world faces a situation we couldn’t have dreamed about, parties and celebrations might feel a long way away.

Here at The Collection, we’re focusing on staying positive and thinking about how to make events even better when it’s safe to get together again. And what celebration is better to bring a team together and excite them for the future than a brilliant Christmas party?

When this situation is over, it’s safe to say we’ll all be keen for the chance to let our hair down and say thank you for all the time and hard work our employees have put in during these uncertain months. This doesn’t have to mean big budgets – we have some amazing venues that will help your team celebrate in style even if the purse strings have to be tightened.

We’ve put together a list of Christmas party venues in London where you can get the best bang for your buck.

The Curtain

Located in the heart of Shoreditch, The Curtain is a 5-star hotel, restaurant and members club all rolled into one exciting events space. The recently refurbished Ballroom is a large blank canvas room that can be transformed to meet all of your festive theming requirements, while the rooftop bar offers stunning views over the London skyline.

State-of-the-art tech will ensure presentations and speeches will go off without a hitch, while bespoke menus will keep guests fed and watered. There’s also a dedicated events team on hand to assist you with anything you need for your celebrations.

The Steel Yard

The industrial look of The Steel Yard lends itself perfectly to stylish celebrations. Just a five-minute walk from Monument and Cannon Street tube station, this highly accessible venue boasts three main spaces for your Christmas party. The main hall features old Victorian railways arches and exposed brickwork for a beautiful backdrop, as well as a cutting-edge lighting and sound system to create the perfect atmosphere.

The bar and mezzanine spaces are ideal for pre-dinner drinks, and the venue has a late licence which will ensure the dancing won’t stop for hours! Catering packages can be tailor-made for your requirements.

Balls Brothers Minster Court

Balls Brothers Minster Court is always a popular spot during the festive season. Guests can enjoy pre-dinner drinks in the luxurious Top Bar before heading to the venue’s restaurant for a choice of delicious canapés, finger food, bowl food, buffet or 3-course meal.

The dedicated events space has been newly refurbished and is a blank canvas waiting to be brought to life with immersive theming and decoration of your choice. For an extra-special evening for a smaller group, the lavish private dining room provides the setting for an evening your guests won’t forget.


To inject a little healthy competition into your Christmas party, why not treat your guests to an event at Bounce Ping Pong? The table tennis bar is the perfect venue to ensure everyone is entertained, whilst encouraging a bit of team building at the same time.

The large, quirky space can be exclusively hired for 150 guests, or for smaller groups the Jacques Room holds 120. The 1950s-style cocktail bar and pizza restaurant are ideal for Instagram opportunities, while photo booths, karaoke and a huge selection of games will ensure the festive fun never stops.
