Many restaurants welcome larger parties to rent private dining rooms. No matter what type of atmosphere you’re trying to achieve, from laid-back to sophisticated, Indianapolis has a location for you! From a light appetizer buffet, to a five-course fully plated dinner, whatever you envision can be achieved by selecting the proper locale. If you’re looking for a more casual location, consider The Ball & Biscuit, Tavern on South, Ambrosia or Binkley’s. Perhaps you are looking to create a refined evening? In this case, take a look at Shula’s Steak House or Harry & Izzy’s.
You may be looking for a venue that provides the capacity to host a very large crowd. In this case, consider an Indianapolis banquet hall. Many banquet halls offer “one stop shopping” so to speak. Coordinate the dinner, beverages, linens, tableware and service all in one place. Take a look at the Omni Severin Hotel, Elbow Room and Parkview Banquet Room, Pipers Grand Manor and the Arch at Chatham.
If you can locate a winery or brewery that is large enough to host the amount of people attending, this is an excellent type of location that will encourage socialization. Flat 12 Bierwerks and Rock Bottom Brewery are great options in Indy. Hosting your celebration at a winery or brewery will place the emphasis on cocktails and conversation!
If you have an easygoing crew or desire an informal party, consider hosting at a ballpark or stadium during a big game. Catch an Indianapolis Pacers game at Banker’s Life Fieldhouse, or an Indianapolis Colts match-up at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Of course there are plenty of other options available for hosting your office holiday party beside these few that are listed. A hotel is always a great venue, such as The Conrad, or you could change it up a bit by hosting it at a museum, such as The Eiteljorg Museum or The Children’s Museum, or the historic Pipers at The Marott.
