Hosting your next holiday party at the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk is definitely switching it up! Forget boring banquet halls, why not have your cocktail hour next to a 100,000 gallon ‘Ocean Beyond the Sound’ exhibit!?
Maritime Aquarium holiday parties have become a staple for me each holiday season. Once companies try them out, they usually keep coming back year after year and I’m usually the one they call since I live so close!. The space is super flexible, with a winding hallway with fish tanks lining the walls for cocktail hour and a huge open space for sit-down meals and dancing. You can have a smaller event with 50-100 people as they can adjust the space accordingly. This cannot be done everywhere as some venues will just not work for smaller parties. Without enough guests to fill the space, the energy will be completely drained from the room and it will not feel like a party!
The massive video wall in the reception hall is great for presentations for the more ‘buttoned-up’ portion of the evening, and you have ease of access with their parking garage across the street and train station a short walk away. The food is also phenomenal – take it from me who’s seen his fair share of catered events!
Maritime Aquarium holiday parties in Norwalk is very popular with local companies. If you’re thinking about having one of your own, I’d recommend you contact them soon since they book up early!
