Have you ever gone to a steakhouse, loaded up on the menu, felt great, and then are useless for the rest of the night? That formula doesn't always work for corporate dinners, so we have found the perfect solution with New York's first ever "standing steakhouse." The venue kind of forces your destination corporate meeting attendees to interact with each other because, quite frankly, they are standing and eating. It's a great idea for corporate meeting planners who have remote
We have found a unique cooking team-building idea that can ramp up an already fun event into an "Iron-Chef" competition among your destination corporate meeting attendees. The event can work among teams and individuals. Your attendees might love beating the executives, but of course, the best part of this kind of team-building is that everyone will enjoy some really creative food when the competition is over!
It seems like the menus of super-chef Jean-Georges are everywhere these days, so it should probably come as no surprise he is entering the world of vegan dining. His newest venue in New York City offers a unique breakfast and lunch idea for corporate meeting groups. Too busy for a road trip? This vegan menu can come to your meeting! We also hear dinner is coming soon.
Having done 10-boat flotillas for major conventions, we know a thing or two about finding ways for destination corporate meeting attendees to cruise the Hudson River in New York City. But what about sailing? There are multiple options that provide a unique "schooner" experience you might find on vacation experiences throughout the Greek Islands, and it's right here in New York. One of the amazing components of this idea is how dramatically the views can change from the bustli
If you haven’t heard, Saint John the Divine in New York City is one of the largest and most spectacular cathedrals in the world. We have taken groups there, and now the surrounding neighborhood is doing more than embracing its existence. It has developed private dining and food break options that are considered world-class with top chefs. This is part of an overall transformation of the entire neighborhood into a destination for corporate meeting attendees for off-hours enter
It seems like everyone wants a piece of Williamsburg, Brooklyn these days. But what about a venue for exclusive corporate events, retreats and executive dinners right below the Williamsburg Bridge? We found one in the increasingly posh South Williamsburg. Locally-sourced everything with a great wine list and a chicken menu that is about as far away as you could get from rubber! This is a great venue for getting deals done.
We have found a unique West Village Manhattan venue steakhouse that your destination corporate meeting attendees would swear is a typical speakeasy. And that’s what makes this place great! Gaze at the Manhattan skyline from across the East River at this 3,000-square-foot roof deck. After a recent renovation, the aria features a retractable glass roof, so you can hang out when it's sunny or raining. Quaff European brews that skew German, like the Aventinus doppelbock ($9), as
In the middle of the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington emerged a story of about 6,000 international flyers who were diverted to a small town in Newfoundland, Canada for about one week while the US was under an air travel ban. The hospitality of the 10,000 locals has become legendary, and Broadway’s newest show tells this story. We even hear that Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau will come to New York to see it! Shackman Associates New York provides destination corporate m
Your destination corporate meeting attendees can experience a taste of Scottish golf only only 90 minutes from New York City, and that includes a frequent bagpiper who can often be heard piping from the first tee at this links-inspired course. The entire venue was built on a former mine near the Walkill River, and the layout is both challenging and spectacular for views. The venue is also part of one of the area’s top ski and snowboard venues, so you can imagine how the terra
One of the world’s top bakers, and chef at Copenhagen’s Michelin-starred restaurant Noma, has launched a bread-baking team-building option in New York City that will have even the most hardened Atkins dieters eager to participate. Your destination corporate meeting attendees will learn all about the process of “proofing time” and “hydration” as they make loaves from heaven that are heartier and chewier (with a killer crust, of course) than anything they might have enjoyed at
If your destination corporate meeting attendees are arriving early in New York City on a Sunday, they will have more water ferry options than ever before to explore the five boroughs. This includes a new route to Rockaway, that in the summer, will be spectacular for views and cooling off while taking the scenic route to one of the city’s top beaches.
Forget the craziness about wiretapping. No one will ever accuse former President Obama of poor taste in dining. Turns out one of the Obamas’ favorite chefs has opened the hottest Bistro in Brooklyn. It is a fantastic venue for casual corporate dinners and destination corporate meetings with smaller groups. We simply love the Grilled Clams appetizer, Sheep’s Milk Cheese Filled Agnolotti, Veal Steak with Long Peppers and Rigatoni Diavola. The decor is kind of hip-industrial, wh
While some of Manhattan’s speakeasies have attached themselves to restaurants as after-hours craft cocktail options, we haven’t seen one piggyback a menu option that sounds just as delicious as the main course. Until now. Meet the Speakeasy Burger, which at one venue features a dry-aged short rib topped with bacon and caramelized onion, Comte cheese, truffle aioli and a horseradish pickle. Wow! This could an ideal alternative to a sit-down dinner for meetings planners with gr
We have found an exciting team-building option, an escape room, where only 20% of participants “succeed”, but 100% improve collaborate skills and build closer relationships with colleagues. Your attendees must get out of a locked room that features finding clues and hidden objects, and solving puzzles. Backdrops include a sunken submarine, rec rooms, and theaters. If your group can think creatively, they will have an opportunity to find a way out!
New York City still has “untapped” neighborhoods that are amazing for events and provide a truly local flavor millennials love. Located in the 140s and Broadway, this area provides destination corporate meeting attendees a taste of city grit (think pre-2010 Williamsburg) with amazing dining and private event venues that will wow taste buds. Enjoy craft cocktails like the Disco Inferno, drinks served in frozen red pepper and menu items like Peje y Parcha topped with salmon tem
