Being such a big city, Edinburgh has plenty of variety and venues to accommodate all types of Christmas parties. But perhaps one of the most popular Christmas party options are the ‘shared’ nights, also known as joiner parties.
The clue is in the name, and with these exciting events, you and your group, company or organisation will join like-minded party goers from other groups for an incredible evening. Here, everyone will let their hair down and celebrate the best time of the year together! Ideal for those smaller to medium sized groups with fewer guests, who are looking to experience the atmosphere of a full-scale party night, minus the cost, then a shared event is for you!
With shared parties, everything you could possibly want will be included in the price, including food and entertainment. Some packages also include drinks with dinner or a dazzling welcome reception on arrival. Have a browse of our top shared Christmas party packages in Edinburgh and choose your favourites!
An exclusive Christmas party night is an ideal option for those larger groups who would prefer not to share their event space with other groups. We’ve got some excellent exclusive party nights available which will be sure to provide you and your team with a truly unforgettable evening! From private dining experiences at unique restaurants, to glamorous hotel suites and spectacular venues that will take your breath away, there really will be something here to cater for each and every group out there!
Opting for an exclusive party night generally provides you and your group with more flexibility too; whether you want to start your event at a certain time, or incorporate a welcome drinks reception into your event, then the dedicated events team at each of our offered venues will be happy to discuss any requirements that you may have.
If you’ve caught sight of some of our Edinburgh Christmas party nights that you like the look of and you’d like to find out more, enquiring online through Eventa really couldn’t be easier! Simply fill in the enquiry form for your preferred party nights and click send – that’s it!

How Do I Pick Between A Shared Or Exclusive Edinburgh Christmas Party?
This is based on a number of questions you will have to answer. Firstly, would your group be happy to share a big party with a number of offices or would you much rather something more private? While not always, exclusive events often require a large minimum number of people attending, so you might have to work out the potential number of staff and see if this is possible with any of the events we have listed. Either way, you should be able to find similar activities, festive menus and entertainment options available for both shared and exclusive.
Does Edinburgh Have A Christmas Market?
Yes it does, located on East Princes Street Gardens. It takes place from the 17th November until the 5th January, therefore if you’re looking for a day time activity to do before the big office Christmas party then this is a great festive activity to get you in the mood. The markets normally open around 10am and usually run until around 8pm.
Where Should I Stay In Edinburgh?
If you’re looking to stay the night, you might want to find out whether the Christmas party is booked in a hotel venue, as then it would make sense to book a room in the place you are celebrating. This would allow you plenty of time to get ready beforehand and also offer you an escape route for when you are feeling tired at the end of the night. If you’re not sure where you are staying yet, many people look to stay near the Royal Mile, which is a very popular area. If you want to feel a bit more traditional, considering the festive period, you might want to stay in old town Edinburgh. This will also allow you to have a quick exploration of the medieval castle the next day.
Are Dogs Allowed Along To The Edinburgh Venues?
This will vary depending on the venue you choose. When you make an enquiry, you can ask for further information such as whether they allow dogs on the premises or whether they have play facilities for children. Before attending the event, it could be worth asking your team whether they had any questions and then emailing these over to the venue beforehand so you will all be aware of what is or isn’t allowed.
How Early Should I Book My Edinburgh Christmas Party?
Edinburgh is a very popular destination for office parties, with a young vibrant population, therefore the popular venues tend to book quite quickly. The peak period for bookings is September, therefore you should try to book before the end of September, however if you haven’t, don’t worry as we have a large number of venues available and great packages for you to check out. Everything listed on the site is available, however we do recommend not waiting too long before booking to ensure your office gets a spot at one of these great venues.
