Twenty Two Jupiter
Address: 22 Jupiter St., Bel-Air Village, Makati City
Mobile: (+63) 916-462-2007
Like Romulo Café, Twenty Two Jupiter is an underrated gem from Jupiter Street. It's pretty easy to spot with its distinct, ridged white ceilings that resemble the interior of a cave. Twenty Two Jupiter can accommodate up to 60 guests, and Chef Marco Legasto serves specialties like scallops with foie gras and mushroom, wild mushroom truffle pasta, and saffron shrimp gambas. If your fellow partygoers want to "spike" things up, the place is also home to the famous ABV Bar, which is located in its basement.

For a venue that accommodates up to 100 guests, Whitespace isn't bad at all. It's a literal blank canvas, with white interiors that can be spruced up to meet any Christmas party need. Considering how Whitespace is a common venue for events in Makati (especially the ones involving major corporations), it's worth checking out.
Of course, these aren't the only Christmas party venues in Makati. If you know of any others that offer a pleasant ambience and facilities at reasonable rates, or if you have thoughts on the ones already recommended here, sound them off in the comments!
