Steve ran his first Pub (in Richmond) at the age of 17 and bought his first pub in 1998 and after seeing that he could help people find better venues to make sure they have a better party, Steve launched Partyhelp in 2004 and Christmas Party Venues in 2005. Steve sold his last Pub in Prahran in 2009 so he could focus on Partyhelp and Christmas Party Venues.

Steve and his business partner Dean were continually shocked at how many people said they had their best Christmas Party ever at one of their venues so they set about finding like minded venue owners who knew how to throw a great party!

Christmas Party Venues has now grown into being able to recommend over 200 awesome function venues in Melbourne. Although there is now a lot of competition in venue finding, Christmas Party Venues remains the most experienced team of hospitality people, led by Steve with over 20 years hospitality experience hosting over 3,000 functions.
