Top 5 Restaurants for Company Christmas Parties

Christmas is serious business and companies need to get a head start with reservations in late October to organize a dinner.  In Vancouver, even brunch is a big deal with up to one hour waits so you can imagine how early venues get reserved for company lunch / dinners.

51 – 80 employees: The Sandbar and Comedy Mix

The Sandbar:   Offering West Coast cuisine in Granville island. I would recommend calling ahead of time to make reservations to ensure they can accomdate your number of guests. Parking can be a bit of a pain however you can easily find free parking approximately 3 blocks down from Granville Island.

Price per person: $30-$40

Vancouver Company Christmas Party

The Comedy Mix: A venue that offers improv shows and food! This is definitely not on the radar for most but it can also double up as a social event as well.

Price per person: $20-$30

81 + employees

If you have 81+ employees, finding a restaurant is going to be tough. You will most likely have to rent out a venue /restaurant and offer catering at this point.
