Christmas Parties for Your Yearly Group Gathering

What is it about Christmas time that suddenly makes you think ‘I haven’t caught up with *insert name here* for *insert finger count here* 6 months.’ Whether it’s a casual get together over a few pints and burgers or a big sit-down dinner, we have the perfect place to catch up for your yearly get-together before St Nick starts knocking on your door.

If you’re after a casual catch up over some good craft beer…
If you value your craft brews, then South Bank will not disappoint. For a casual Christmas catch-up with mates head to Tippler’s Tap, Bourbon Street, Hop and Pickle or Fritzenberger who will sort you out with the best on tap plus some seriously great food. For those after a slightly larger venue and some live music, head to The Charming Squire for some local brews and slow cooked ribs. Alternatively, if a view is what you are in search of, you can’t beat the ones overlooking Streets Beach from South Bank Beer Garden and South Beach Social (made even better with a cold drink in one hand and a fresh tiger prawn in the other).

If you’re after a laidback luxe atmosphere paired with great food and drinks…
If you’re after a stylish Christmas catch-up laden with great bites and beverages, you can’t go past Next Door Kitchen and Bar which provides an intimate setting paired with substantial menu choices, or Barbossa Bar with Caribbean inspired drinks that will be sure to get you into the festive season mood. Alternatively, if the sound of tapas is calling your name, The Sangria Bar is designed with groups in mind! Grab a large table and let the good times roll with live entertainment on the weekend and plenty of traditional Spanish tapas to go around. If you are a fan of the sweeping river views South Bank provides, head down to River Quay where you’ll find The Jetty, Popolo, Aquitaine and River Quay Fish, all of which offer extensive cocktail lists and dishes constructed around locally-sourced ingredients.

If you are into smaller plates to create a feast for the table…
If you a firm believer that ‘sharing is caring’ when it comes to your Christmas get-together, then hit up our friends at Mucho Mexicano for the ‘Mother of all Tacos,’ designed for groups to indulge in. If you are in mood for Spanish, Ole will provide you with the tastiest of tapas such as fried manchego cheese or grilled octopus matched with chorizo, fresh lime and tomato. Alternatively, head down to the original home of the share plate – Popolo! Their dishes are designed to not only be sampled in big groups, but draw people together.

If breakfast is more your style…
If your group are the definition of earlybirds, then why not have a Christmas catch-up over breakfast? The avo on toast at Denim Co. is an absolute crowd-pleaser. Otherwise, why not head down to Coco Bliss, Lost Bean or Espresso Garage and indulge in some delicious breakfast fare while basking in the sun? Yep, that sounds like our kind of gathering!

Take me to Tippler’s Tap and Bourbon Street and Hop & Pickle and The Charming Squire and South Bank Beer Garden and Next Door Kitchen and Bar and Barbossa Bar & Bottle Shop and The Sangria Bar and The Jetty and Popolo and Aquitaine Brasserie and River Quay Fish and Mucho Mexicano and Ole and Denim Co. and Coco Bliss and Espresso Garage
