These Are the Best Event Spaces to Host a Company Party in Austin

Celebrating a holiday party with your work crew is a great opportunity to get gussied up, enjoy a delicious meal with your colleagues, and toast to the end of another great year. Since Austin is one of our favorite places to host a party, we’re sharing the best spots to deck the halls and toast to the new year. There’s a Japanese farmhouse-style restaurant in Hyde Park, a bold boutique hotel in SoCo, and a modern art museum that’ll have your team feeling inspired. Looking for a place where you can totally take over and set up a winter wonderland of your own in the heart of downtown ATX? We’ve got a few options for that too.
