Upgrading your boardroom dinners from boring to brilliant with ExecSpace!

ExecSpace get a lot of requests for private dining venues.
Whether it’s a board meeting, senior leadership team gathering, or a departmental get-together, finding the right space that hits the spot in terms of décor, service and quality can make a big difference (for example see our blog on top tips for roundtable dinners here).

We’ve picked five options which not only feed your guests with crowd-pleasing menus, but will fuel camaraderie and cement team spirit through the power of play. Each one has multiple locations too, so you can beat the bland boardroom dinner wherever your business meets across the UK.

Depending on the objectives of your dinner you may want to continue your evening and need inspiration. Dinners are, by nature, rather sedentary, so adding something energising as for the ‘after party’ is a great way to leave employees feeling engaged, motivated and connected.

 

While many hotels or restaurants may have their own offering to choose from (some hotels have their own bowling alleys, cinemas, casinos), many don’t, and clients don’t always realise this is something we can help with!

 

Our team have loads of inside expert knowledge about the best add-on experiences beyond the boardroom, can help you find something that fits your needs, and take the hassle out of checking availability, costs and so on.

Our top five crowd pleasers

Take flight (not literally)

 Darts has made a cool comeback with the launch of several Flight Club venues across the country, including its newest opening in Edinburgh.

Enjoy fast-paced dart throwing, beer buckets or cocktails and delicious sharing plates to release some energy after a long meeting. You can hire the venue exclusively and take part in your own company tournament too, with a dedicated Gamesmaster to host the evening.

 

I don’t like cricket, I love it

At Sixes Social Cricket, it’s cricket, but not as you know it! This new concept combines precision sports tech and a global leaderboard with hospitality and catering.

Book a table – or takeover the venue exclusively – and participate in a modern batting experience alongside a menu that ranges from grazing or sharing to feasting. They also have karaoke booths, so you can really cement the team vibes by singing anthems together!

 

Knock at the door, number four

The UK’s first and only purpose built, contemporary bingo hall, Dabbers has created an incredible carnival atmosphere with a vibrant mix of modern bingo games, comedy, quizzes, cabaret, singing and delicious dining.

Entertainment and good vibes abound in each of their venues in Central London, Hackney and Soho – and their spectacular ball machine is just one of the many talking points.

 

A Tee-riffic time

Another traditional sport that’s been reimagined, mini golf at Putt Shack uses impressive tech that registers each ball to its player and automatically tracks scores – no pencil and scorecard needed here!

At its locations in London, Essex and Watford, you’ll find crazy courses, signature cocktails and a trendy street food menu.  

 

The American Dream

If you’re looking for variety, Boom Battle Bar is a great choice with a mix of fun activities that include American pool, electric darts, shuffleboard, axe-throwing and crazy golf.

Pair it with their crowd-pleasing menu if you’re still hungry and everyone right up to C-Suite can unwind and join in.

While it isn’t always appropriate to add on something fun, if you’ve finally managed to synchronise calendars to get a date for event, you can often achieve both business objectives AND strengthen team bonds by rethinking the agenda.
