It’s hard to believe, but the holidays are upon us and if you’re in charge of booking your company’s holiday party, you’re probably stressing out right now. Lucky for you, we’ve put together a running list of the best holiday party spaces in Philadelphia. Whether you’re looking for a restaurant with a gorgeous ambiance or a massive museum for a massive company, keep checking back as the list grows.
640 N. Broad St.
How about gathering together with your co-workers in a rustic yet elegant space that’s off the beaten path? Look no further than Osteria. With their topnotch menu of Italian food, wine and cocktails, Osteria is a feast for the eyes and tummy. You can rent out the entire restaurant (seats 120) or a part of it. The most intimate space is the Kitchen Table, where 8 to 14 people can be seated. The Wine Cellar offers a completely private dining experience and seats 30, with a few of Osteria’s impressive wine collection. Finally, their glass-enclosed patio provides a full view of their garden and the opportunity to dine under the stars, even in cold weather. This part of the restaurant seats 60.
Museum of the American Revolution
101 S. 3rd St.
Perhaps you have a slightly larger party? The Museum of the American Revolution has six different event spaces with a capacity for 1000 people. The Rotunda and Grand Staircase can hold a reception for 220 guests (and makes for the ultimate Instagram shot) and if you’re looking for a view, Liberty Hall on the third floor can host a seated reception for 180 people, and even includes an open air terrace that overlooks Independence National Historic Park. For food, The Museum of the American Revolution works with Brulee Catering, led by Philly culinary legend, Chef Jean-Marie Lacroix.
909 S. 2nd St.
Perhaps you and the team could use a little group activity to go along with all of that eating and drinking. Why not host your holiday party at a bowling alley like North Bowl in Northern Liberties? You can rent a lane or two as well as get all of the catering provided by North Bowl. Menu items include party friendly treats like corn dogs (beef and veggie), tater tots, crudite, mac n’ cheese and more. Have a bigger party? You can host up to 150 people in the Loft Space and get bowling lanes in addition to pool tables, a sleek lounge, video games, pinball games, foosball table and a hockey table.
