Comped lunches, branded swag, days off, and happy hours are just some of the ways companies are rewarding and motivating their employees. We at PartySlate know there is no better way to celebrate successes and recognize key players than with a once-in-a-lifetime company holiday party. A well-planned company holiday party full of interactive activities, buzzworthy cuisine and cocktails, and upbeat entertainment will make your employees feel recognized and celebrated, while also giving people time to get to know one another in a relaxed, social setting.
Once you have envisioned the theming and scale of your company holiday party — whether an intimate cocktail hour or a large-scale bash — it’s time to find and book your holiday party venue. Browse through our top 12 holiday party venues in Los Angeles to find the perfect festive fit.
Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills’ glamorous Astor Ballroom is the ideal venue for your roaring 20s-themed company holiday party to ring in the New Year. From the luxe gold furniture and light fixtures and chic black and gold patterned carpeting, to gold mirrored walls and crystal chandeliers, you would think Gatsby himself designed this space. We recommend a 20s attire party, and passing out feather boas and pearl necklaces to tie the whole event together. Serve Gatsby-approved catering from the hotel’s Jean-Georges Beverly Hills signature restaurant, and create custom, on-theme cocktails for guests to enjoy.
Capacity: 200 (seated) – 400 (standing)
Guests will be wowed from the moment they pull up to the Montage Beverly Hills. Out of all of the holiday party venues in Los Angeles, the Marquesa Ballroom at Montage Beverly Hills is one of the more glamorous options. This opulent, Spanish Colonial-inspired ballroom is the perfect fit for your black-tie holiday affair. Transform the entirety of the space with dramatic draping and light fixtures, and create a dance floor space for your employees to celebrate their year’s successes. Multiple opera balconies offer quiet getaways for those looking to mix and mingle.
Capacity: 320 (seated) – 500 (standing)
Take your company holiday party to the next level — 12 floors up — at the stunning Mr. C Beverly Hills. We envision a white and blue winter wonderland in the Starlight Ballroom at Mr. C Beverly Hills, offering 5,000 square feet for celebrating. The floor-to-ceiling windows in this space not only offer 360-degree views of Los Angeles, but serve as an expansive backdrop for your company holiday party. Picture white brand trees, twinkling lights, and silver and chrome furniture filling the space. We love how planners at ROCKNEVENTS incorporated white, whimsical linens and lucite chairs in the dining space of this Los Angeles event.
Capacity: up to 350
Impress your company holiday party guests from the Wetherly Pavilion at Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills and eliminate stress from the start of your holiday party planning with the help of their renowned events team. We absolutely love the idea of building a clear top tent over the Wetherly Pavilion space, filled with string lights, disco balls, and crystal chandeliers for a modern winter company holiday party. Keep the center open for a dance floor, and surround the space with food stations and tall boys for networking. The raised stairs in the back of the pavilion is the perfect performance spot for your company party entertainment.
Capacity: up to 250
Downtown Los Angeles
Bring the North Pole to Los Angeles by utilizing the 360-degree video wall of the 54th Interactive Floor at OUE Skyspace LA. This customizable, interactive space is a great company holiday party option that will not only break the ice, but will have your employees talking for months to come. Other interactive features include an infinity mirror — simulating the sky-high views — and a silhouette wall, reflecting pixel images of the body standing in front of it. With so many interactive experiences, you can keep décor minimal and focus on creative catering and cocktail options.
Capacity: 150 (seated) – 800 (standing)
Of all the holiday party venues Los Angeles has to offer, the California Ballroom at Sheraton Grand LA may be one of the most spacious. The California Ballroom can fit up to 1,500 guests, serving as a prime location for your large-scale Los Angeles company holiday party. You will have plenty of space for a dance floor, food stations, dining tables — but also for engaging activities such as a life-size chess board, arcade games, a live band, and more.
Capacity: 700 (seated) – 1,500 (standing)
Let the twinkling Los Angeles skyline serve as your Christmas light décor from the Rooftop Deck at Hilton Checkers Los Angeles. This indoor-outdoor space is a luxurious option for your company holiday party venue, full of old Hollywood glamour. Play up the hotel’s black, white, and gold tones with red roses and complementary décor. Offer heated areas, luxe throw blankets, and fur shawls to keep guests cozy as they mix and mingle from the balcony space. And to really impress your holiday party guests: make-your-own s’mores and hot cocoa stations.
Capacity: 100 (seated) – 120 (standing)
Get in the holiday spirit with classic Christmas décor in the Studio 14 space at City Market Social House. We love how traditional wreaths, bows, and candles are juxtaposed in this industrial Los Angeles warehouse space — and how Vox Productions used red uplighting for the final festive touch at this holiday party, catered by Wolfgang Puck Catering — Los Angeles. This massive space is entirely customizable and is home to many award shows, industry events, product launches, and more — your company holiday party guests will appreciate your trendy, in-the-know venue selection.
Capacity: 700 (seated) – 1,000 (standing)
Another Los Angeles hot spot is NeueHouse, Hollywood, where the Studio A space fits up to 600 guests. This social-friendly venue is full of cultural and collaborative spaces and gives off an energetic atmosphere. We love Studio A for its massively tall ceilings, theater-style balcony space, and high quality A/V capabilities. We recommend a futuristic holiday party here, complete with illuminated furniture, neon signage, and iridescent décor.
Capacity: 350 (seated) – 600 (standing)
The romantic first floor of The Ebell of Los Angeles is a stunning company holiday party venue option, offering a relaxed yet elevated ambiance for a sit-down dinner or a night of mixing and mingling. Guests can enjoy passed apps and hand-crafted cocktails from their talented mixologists — what truly sets this venue apart. If the weather is nice, you can also reserve the courtyard space, complete with standing heaters and blanket-filled lounge spaces.
Capacity: 300 (seated) – 1,200 (standing)
We love how Google and YouTube transformed the main room of Candela La Brea into a green uplit snowglobe for their Los Angeles company holiday party. With LED walls, you are able to project patterns and colors of your choice, surrounding the event in theming. A proper stage space and its amenities are ideal for hiring a wow-worthy DJ or band who will keep your guests dancing all night long. One other unique feature of Candela La Brea is the narrow stair entryway, where you can set the tone of your event from the moment guests walk through the front door.
Capacity: up to 850
Host your all-white winter wonderland company holiday party from the Starlight Ballroom at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows. This opulent ballroom sparkles from the inside out with its multiple crystal chandeliers and mirrored-wall details. We love a centered dance floor space to break up the massive room, giving guests a place to “break it down.” FIG Catering is the in-house caterer, and we highly recommend including their “Pick-your-Prime” meat carving station where you select your own prime-cut meat and sauces.
Capacity: 500 (seated) – 800 (standing)
