Every Venue in Atlanta You Should Host Your Company Holiday Party At

Corporate parties get a bad reputation for being stuffy and not a whole lot of fun, but we’re here to change that because we firmly believe that people who work hard together should be able to play hard together too. Atlanta’s diverse medley of cool markets, industrial venues, boutique hotels, historic homes, and posh design centers makes it a fabulous destination for a corporate party with swag.

Whether you’re celebrating a year of your best sales yet, getting your gang together for a holiday cocktail party or treating your top dozen coworkers to a fancy steakhouse night, we’ve got a venue for you. From Buckhead’s latest co-worker club to Midtown’s best charcuterie spot, there’s a little something for every type of holiday celebration. You can rent out a whole restaurant or head to a casual brewery for tours and tastes of local beer. So, go ahead and pick your holiday style, don your best festive attire and get ready for a play-hard event with your work-hard squad.
