‘Staff party month’ is only weeks away and all eyes are on Malta’s top hotels, restaurants and event venues. The local hospitality industry has long been preparing special festive menus and creating the perfect atmosphere for a yearly Christmas gathering with one’s colleagues, and no doubt the more enthusiastic employees have already pitched in venue ideas.

Malta’s hotels and restaurants have such an impeccable reputation in event hosting, it is no wonder how most companies find it difficult to choose one perfect spot.

This iconic hotel in the Capital is one of the busiest any festive season, and with good reason. The Phoenicia offers different packages from sit-down dinners with special set menus to packages for open bars and children’s parties. Malta’s famous Triton Fountain is just opposite the venue, making the night out one to remember from entrance to exit.

This restaurant and clubhouse is a perfect central venue for large or small company gatherings. The upstairs private clubhouse can be rented for annual company gatherings with a choice of finger food to help keep the alcohol levels in tow. Try not to get too lost in the view, however.
