Planning the Perfect Holiday Party in Milwaukee


This means there are plenty of holiday parties, corporate gatherings, fundraisers and all sorts of other special events during this season where we get to dress up glam and celebrate with friends and loved ones. Now if you’re one of the lucky people, you only get to attend these events. If you’re on the other side of things and you’re in charge of planning a holiday party for work, don’t fret, we’ve got some good news for you.

Event spaces to meet every need

With our recent hotel expansion, we have added new spaces, including the Legacy ballroom, for all your holiday events. This means more space to dance, eat terrific food and drink your favorite holiday beverages (pass us the sparkling wine!) with up to 630 of your closest friends. Don’t have that many? No worries. Our Legacy Ballroom can sectioned off for smaller gatherings to fit your needs, or you can book one of our other spaces your celebration.

With talk of all things new, let’s not forget about our Event Center, where we have been hosting the city’s biggest New Year’s Eve party, MKENYE! If you are looking to host your own holiday party, we’ve got package deals available for events hosted November through January that include free self-parking, free valet parking for overnight guests and free holiday décor.
