There’s no denying that corporate events can be somewhat lacklustre and your employees and/or guests can often be left feeling like they were better off staying in the office, so it’s about time you put an end to the boring corporate event and looked at booking something a little more out there!

Guests can book car hire from Manchester airport or grab a cab to the conference location. When it comes to that perfect setting, Manchester has so much to offer…

1. Gorilla

An industrial bar/club nestled under railway arches, Gorilla has private spaces suited to each different style of event you might be planning. With a gin parlour known for its 50 rare guest gins suited to a drink’s reception, a studio with its own bar ideal for more conference style layouts and, for those looking for something very different, a club with its own stage, you can put a chic twist on your corporate event. If you do want to be a bit more reserved though, you can also hire the entire restaurant for a relaxed sit-down meal. For large corporate events, you can also book out all the available spaces and treat your attendees to the different vibes each space has to offer.

2. The Cinema at Victoria Warehouse

One for if you’re looking for a more intimate and exclusive event for a small group of guests is The Cinema at Victoria Warehouse. An ode to simpler times, the cinema is a quirky and nostalgic setting complete with seating salvaged from an old theatre on the outskirts of Manchester. Other spaces available at the Victoria Warehouse include; The Archives - a refurbished and urban basement offering an industrial charm, The Skyhook - a bistro-style space suited to cocktails and canapes, and The Bays which were once used as storage for Kellogg’s, McVitie’s and Cadburys.

3. Hula Manchester

Take your corporate event back in time to a 1950’s inspired tiki dive bar. With a tropical beach-style, the Hula Manchester has two rooms available for private hire and a vast number of cocktails available; from the classic and authentic for those who want to play it a little bit safe, to a selection of wacky and wild potions to get your guests feeling like they’re dancing on the sandy beaches of older times.

4. Manchester Art Gallery

Everyone likes the opportunity to dress up and wear their favourite suit or little black dress, so why not add a touch of class to your corporate event by hiring out one of the many spaces available at the Manchester Art Gallery. With outstanding art collections and a Victorian but contemporary setting, your guests will be left feeling super impressed and possibly even a little educated.

5. Concorde Conference Centre

If most of your guests are going to need to fly to Manchester to attend your corporate event, then why not host your event at the Concorde Conference Centre at the Runway Visitor Park. Your guests will not only be grateful for the reduced travel time but the event itself will take their breath away as they dine under the wings of the world-famous Concorde.

Top tip

Wherever you choose to hold your corporate event remember to do one thing, make sure there is plenty of food and drink available with different options tailored to the many dietary requirements of your guests, and be a bit adventurous - we can all serve a bottle of bubbly with meat and two veg or stuffed peppers!
