Getting tired of hosting your holiday party at the same old place time after time? We hear you. 

Little Rock boasts many a lovely party location. From cozy, intimate events to larger gatherings, we’ve rounded up the best of the best for this holiday season.  

 

Capital Hotel / One Eleven

The Capital Hotel is the place to be and be seen during the holidays — and for good reason. The place is decked to the nines with Christmas décor (and one spectacular tree) making it a perfect spot for special dinners or parties. The Capital books up fast for larger parties, but you might still be able to snag a spot in One Eleven’s gorgeous wine cellar for a cozy dinner with up to 20 of your favorite people.

Trapnall Hall

It’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time inside this antebellum home. The house has been beautifully maintained and its ample parking in downtown Little Rock makes it easy to access. Trapnall Hall allows for 50 people for dinner and meeting settings. Since it is a historic home, Trapnall Hall’s floor can’t support dancing, but small music groups are welcome. Find out more here.
