6 Cincinnati Holiday Party Venues
‘Tis the season to start planning that epic annual holiday party! If there is one thing we’ve learned in the past year, it’s how important gathering with our teams, families, partners and most cherished friends is. So this year, we’re ready to go big and deck the halls with holiday parties of all kinds. Have you started planning? If not, things are going to book up quickly, so it’s time to start scouting the perfect venue for your Cincinnati holiday party.
Here are a few holiday party venues our McHale’s Events & Catering team loves to work with.
The Cincinnati Club | Cincinnati, OH | Capacity: 300 Seated / 500+ Cocktail
This ornate event venue is almost too beautiful to need any décor at all. Designed with traditional Italian Renaissance architecture and unique art deco flair, the gold gilded accents add a sparkle for every holiday party that enters the space. The best part is the sheer number of options, each just as beautiful as the last. There are four ballroom spaces, each with its own unique personality and pizzaz so you can choose which suits your holiday celebration best! Each of the spaces features a cozy historic fireplace that really adds to the wintry, holiday cheer providing warmth for all.
The Pinnacle Ballroom | Covington, KY | Capacity: 240 Seated / 300 Cocktail
The Pinnacle Ballroom is the ideal space to host your team or family for a station-style holiday party. The large ballroom space is ideal to set up with unique stations like a grown-up mac and cheese bar, Kentucky BBQ station—because every holiday is a great occasion for BBQ—or the famous Cincinnati Coney Bar, which features our famous chili, perfect on a cold winter eve. The towering ceilings feature knotted pine, which is extra festive for the season.
The Grand Ballroom | Covington, KY | Capacity: 340 Seated / 500+ Cocktail
There’s something very grandiose about catered holiday parties. Holidays are a time of indulgence and elegance, and The Grand Ballroom offers the perfect backdrop to fit the bill. This exquisite event space is perfect for holiday parties, as you can hang colored lights—holiday fitting or maybe company colors—from the balcony, and the upstairs is perfect for cocktail hour with a seated dinner downstairs in the ballroom!
The Center at Fountain Square | Cincinnati, OH | Capacity: 300 Seated / 500 Cocktail
Here you can bust out all the red and green décor with no fear of clashing with existing structures. The Center at Fountain Square features beautiful white walls and stunning wood floors that can easily be transformed in any way with holiday tinsel and cheer. It’s also perfect for a white winter solstice party—a truly blank canvas type of holiday event venue!
The Gardens of Park Hills | Park Hills, KY | Capacity: 300 Seated / 500 Cocktail
If you’re in search of an elegant plated meal-style celebration for your holiday party, one of the two ballrooms at The Gardens of Park Hills is a perfect option. If you have a long evening, you can host cocktail hour complete with a sprawling charcuterie display and tasty passed hors d’oeuvres to start, then a sit-down dinner featuring winter favorites like hand-carved slow-smoked beef brisket with roasted redskin and Yukon gold potatoes.
Drees Pavilion | Covington, KY | Capacity: 300 Seated / 425 Cocktail
For a memorable holiday party that will delight and wow with real twinkling lights to illuminate the night sky in the distance, host your event at Drees Pavilion. This incredible venue is located atop the highest lookout in Covington with views for days. Memorable events need memorable venues!
