Have you ever thought about having your Christmas party at a central yet hidden gem in Scotland’s capital, like The Merchants’ Hall? Now you can! This stunning venue, originally only available for use by the Edinburgh Merchant Company’s members, is available for hire for all sorts of exclusive event bookings and you can host the perfect Christmas bash here!

We think The Merchants’ Hall, with all its impressive grandeur, is the picture-perfect setting for a private hire Christmas party! The Hall is a gorgeous setting for up to 150 guests for a delectable festive feast in amongst the fabulous domed ceiling and unique Minstrels’ Gallery.

Our award-winning Development Chef will create a special menu, while our experienced and wildly imaginative event planners can also help organise everything from a live band to ice sculptures. We can even get the invitations designed to fit in with our super-sparkly theme. In other words, if you need to, you can leave everything up to us.

Furthermore, If the weather is good, The Merchants’ Hall can even dress up their grand entrance with a complimentary red carpet for your guests arriving. Not only does this make a great entrance, it’s sure to make each of your guests feel like the VIP they are. With drinks in hand and the music playing, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in here!

The beautiful Court Room upstairs is an amazing space for a more cosy Christmas celebration. After your delicious Christmas dinner, the Hall downstairs can be set up for a dance or ceilidh whilst you and your guests sit back and relax, with some (mistletoe and) wine. There’s a gorgeous view to soak in from this room, you can see from the Winter Wonderland in Princes Street, all the way up to the beautiful St Giles Cathedral.

The venue is in close proximity to Edinburgh’s main bus routes, Waverley train station and a taxi rank, so you can party the night away into the small hours without worry of missing your sleigh ride home.
