Planning a corporate evening party can be tricky. You want to give your guests something unique and interesting, but you also need to make sure that the venue is conducive to networking and conversation.

With that in mind, here are some less-than-conventional venues for your next corporate evening party.

Art Galleries 

What could be more visually stimulating than an art gallery? A large space filled with beautiful artwork is sure to get conversations flowing between attendees — not to mention it provides plenty of opportunities for great photo ops.

If you're looking for a more intimate setting, plenty of smaller galleries can be rented out for the occasion. Before planning your menu, just check with the owner first about any food and drink restrictions.

If you're lucky, the gallery may even provide an expert to give attendees a guided tour of its collection — making it something that your guests won't forget in a hurry. The idea of a private tour is bound to impress your guests.

Rooftop Bars 

For a more casual atmosphere, why not consider renting out a rooftop bar? Not only does this give attendees a chance to enjoy stunning views of the city skyline, but it also allows for a more relaxed atmosphere.

Depending on your budget, you could even have a live band playing in the background or provide a selection of food and drinks for your guests to enjoy. And for a touch of luxury, you could even provide a selection of cigars — the perfect ending to an evening of entertaining.

If your party is during the summer, you could even set up a few outdoor games for guests to enjoy, such as giant Jenga or lawn bowling at the bar. Or, if you're looking for something more relaxed, provide a few lawn chairs so attendees can just sit back and enjoy the night sky.


For something totally unexpected, how about hosting a party at a museum? These kinds of venues provide many options for activities — you could even hire lecturers to give talks on various topics related to your business or industry.

Plus, if you plan ahead, many museums are happy to host corporate parties and may even provide discounts on rental fees or admission prices. If your party is taking place after hours, the museum can provide a unique atmosphere that is sure to be remembered.

When planning your next corporate evening party, don't feel like you have to stick with traditional venues like banquet halls or restaurants — there are plenty of other options out there. Consider art galleries or museums for something different that's sure to wow your guests while still providing a great networking opportunity.

With all these creative venue choices available, you're sure to find something perfect for your event.
