Published on September 20 2022 - Updated on October 10 2023

Holiday celebrations are one of the most important workplace events. They’re the subject of conversations around the office coffee machine long before and after they happen, but they can be a challenge for business owners and social committees. Read on for venues where you can host large parties or intimate gatherings. The holidays are just around the corner, so make sure you book your space now!

One-of-a-Kind Experiences

For small businesses, Old Chelsea Square is the place to be for your holiday celebrations. Discover the facilities offered by Distillerie du Square or book a room for a meal at the Chelsea Pub and combine your experience with a business package that includes an overnight stay at the Village Lofts and a delicious breakfast at Biscotti & cie.

Book an upscale off-grid cottage at Kenauk Nature, one of North America’s largest private nature reserves, or participate in team-building activities in the heart of nature. Organize a professional development retreat or hold focused meetings in a luxurious setting with a relaxed atmosphere. Packages can be customized to meet your needs and can include transportation and catering services.

For larger teams, enjoy a unique experience and hold your holiday celebrations at Fairmont Le Château Montebello, the world’s largest log building. This iconic resort offers turnkey service with a full range of services, from a spa to luxurious rooms to fine dining. The culinary team has already created a special menu for the occasion!

The Hilton Lac-Leamy complex offers a wide range of amenities under one roof: a luxurious hotel, a casino, a theatre, several bars and restaurants, and a spa—everything you and your guests need for a successful holiday event.

The Canadian Museum of History has ten rooms of various sizes for events of all kinds. Reserve the majestic Grand Hall, the 500-seat Theatre, or even the Canadian History Hall, which houses the museum’s flagship exhibition. Celebrate in an impressive architectural setting and make your holiday celebrations memorable.

Creative options

For an unconventional team activity or gift ideas for your team, the Outaouais has what you’re looking for.

Go on the Gatineau microbrewery tour organized by Aventure Outaouais. It’s a great way to get to know your colleagues and build relationships for future joint projects. Invite your team to enjoy the thermal experience and massage therapy at Nordik Spa-Nature, the largest spa in North America. Discuss projects over refreshments in the infinity pool or relax in Adirondack chairs by the fire. See how a change of scenery can spark your team’s imagination!

Get together at Soif Bar à vin for a happy hour or an informal dinner. You can also host your holiday event there and participate in a private wine-tasting workshop with sommelier Véronique Rivest.
