Shared vs Privates: Which is right for your business?

The most wonderful time of the year is almost upon us, and if you haven’t already thought about the annual Christmas party, now is the time to, before it’s too late.

You’ve settled on the venue for your party, but there’s still the choice between whether you should opt for a shared or private party night.

In this month’s blog, we share the key details about our shared and private party nights, so you can choose a celebration which truly reflects your company culture.

Christmas Extravaganza

One of our most popular party nights, the Christmas Extravaganza is a top class celebration that can accommodate up to 800 guests.

Start the night with a glass of fizz on arrival before enjoying a live acoustic set in our mezzanine bar during the drinks reception, then head into our award-winning venue The Point to enjoy a three-course meal and get pulling those crackers. After dinner has been served, head to the dance floor for some live entertainment that will get you rockin’ around the Christmas tree, featuring BRAND NEW vocalists with Under the Covers and resident DJ, Paul Atkinson.

Capture the moments with your friends or colleagues with our selfie pod and interactive games. And for those who fancy some late night nibbles, head to the mezzanine bar to devour our delicious cheese, chutneys, biscuits and coffee.

You can book tables of ten, and this is the perfect opportunity for a small to medium sized business to celebrate the end of the year in style.

Hurry, we only have one date remaining! If you think this is the party for you, our Christmas Co-Ordinator would love to hear from you. Get in touch on, call 0161 282 4020 or fill out our enquiry form.

Work’s Finished for Christmas Party

This is the BIGGEST party night in Manchester and one which will definitely keep the party going into the early hours. Want classic anthems, spectacular food and unrivalled entertainment? Then let your hair down at our Work’s Finished for Christmas Party.

This year we welcome the soulful sounds of TDK who have played at some of the biggest festivals in the UK, including Glastonbury, followed by our resident DJ, who will have you belting out the classics until the early hours. Also, take advantage of our face painters and get glammed up ready to enjoy the selfie pods – get those pictures uploaded to social media and be the envy of your followers.

To book this unmissable evening of celebration, get in touch on, call 0161 282 4020 or fill out our enquiry form.

Private Parties

Perhaps you’re a smaller company after an intimate celebration, or want to splash out and create an extravagant night for your team, a private party could be the right choice for you.

We can cater from numbers as little as ten, right through to the larger companies of up to 1,200, so you can enjoy the festive season in your own private suite.

Want to organise a feast full of food, glorious food? Work with our Head Chef and combine fresh, seasonal ingredients with big flavours to create a mouth-watering menu that truly encapsulates your brand.

And, for a theme? As low key or as astounding as you wish. Whether you’re after a carnival celebration with stilt walkers, fire breathers, exotic colours and vibrant costumes, or a more traditional yuletide festive gathering with warm colours, lavishly decorated Christmas tress, snow-tipped pine cones dotting the tables and a tempting menu, we can bring your Christmas vision to life.

With all the partying, you’ll need somewhere to unwind and rest your head. Cosy up underneath the crisp, white sheets at our four-star Hilton Garden Inn.

Enjoy some cocktails at the hotel bar, or order a bottle of bubbly and some beers to your room while you get ready, before you take the short walk via our bridge links to your party night.

The party doesn’t have to stop, as you can head back to the residents bar after the evening and enjoy a tipple or two. And, we’ve got you covered for the morning after, with a fresh, cooked to order breakfast and our famous waffles.

With 700 free on-site parking spaces, excellent transport links and fantastic party nights, we’re the natural choice for your private event.

To book your room, get in touch with our Reservations Manager, Alexis Yaghil on or call 0161 868 7100.
