Top 6 Best Corporate Office Summer Party Ideas

Office parties don’t need to be stale crackers in a sad, fluorescent-lit room. Give everyone a summer night to remember with a party that pulls out all the stops. No matter what your budget is, we have a list bursting with corporate summer party ideas that we know your colleagues will love. So whether you’re going for a full-on knees up or after a more relaxed soirée, here’s some inspo to get you planning. Have fun! 

Dominate your competitors at Swingers Crazy Golf

It’s time to take the watercooler banter to the big leagues. Yes, it’s golf clubs at dawn at Swingers. With either of our London locations, your colleagues can enjoy uniquely designed, 9-hole crazy golf courses that’ll get the friendly competition, as well as the laughs, going. Fun and a little bit different, we guarantee it’ll be a hit with your team. And it doesn’t just stop there. There are award-winning cocktail bars to enjoy, and live DJs to dance to. Of course, people are going to get hungry. Guests can enjoy epic street food, from some of London’s best street food vendors, including Patty&Bun, Breddos Tacos and Pizza Pilgrims.

If you’re curious to learn more do get in touch, especially about our private booking options. We’ll happily cater across a range of different preferences and budgets. From designated private areas to full-on hospitality rooms, as well as private dining – whatever your vision, we’re here to help it happen!

Throw an elaborately themed office party

Nothing quite gets people in the spirit of a good time like a fancy dress party. Seeing your colleague’s outfit is a great way to get to know them and their sense of humour. Worried people might feel a little shy? Throw a fancy dress competition to encourage more people to join in! There might be some teammates who feel a little intimidated or maybe are not into this type of party – so reassure them that it’s not mandatory. It’s all for a bit of fun. The most important thing is that they feel included and comfortable.

It’s easy to budget around this one too. You can choose to rent out a space, or if your office is big enough, hold in a meeting room. Themed decorations and nibbles are pretty easy to source too. Just pop to your local party shop or have a look online. If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed with the planning, get your colleagues to join in on the fun!

Experience the thrill of a casino night

Bring the glitz and glamour of Vegas to your colleagues with a hired casino. It’s the perfect excuse for everyone to get dressed up and have fun. Dress code suits and cocktail dresses, anyone? The Events Company can bring to you all you need for a lucky night. This includes casino tables, croupiers, props, lighting and more. All you need is to provide the venue. So test your fortune on the roulette wheel, or have a go at Blackjack. It’s sure to be a winner of an evening for all! Even if your wallet feels a little lighter the following morning.

And if you’re looking for the real Vegas experience, keep your eyes peeled for our new venue coming to Las Vegas Strip resort. For more information, sign up to our newsletter here.

Book a boat party

Rock the boat! Don your captain’s cap, and prepare to swab the deck on a luxurious Silver Fleet private boat party. These are available to hire on the River Thames, and can include access to their moored quays too. Silver Fleet boats can accommodate large and small groups, with covered open spaces, break out areas, and on-board bars. Catering is also on the menu, with multiple food courses available. Expect seasonal ingredients from British suppliers used in crowd-pleasing dishes. These modern, state-of-the-art vessels also offer unparalleled views of the city, guaranteed to be the cherry on top of a memorable summer work party.

Show off your cooking skills with an office potluck party

The way into many people’s good books is through their bellies. It’s time to dust off Aunty Julie’s trusty recipe for those chocolate chip cookies. Food is a sure fire winner to get people bonding and talking. It’s a lovely way to learn about the stories, and people, behind the food. Listen to tales about tried-and-tested favourites, dishes passed down from family, and try something new. 

Just make sure beforehand everyone is bringing something different, otherwise you might end up with fifteen plates of nachos. Not that there’s anything wrong with nachos… You’ll also want to make sure all dietary requirements are catered for. Like the fancy dress party, it’s important to remind your colleagues that there’s no pressure, especially when it comes to making complicated dishes.

Sing your heart out at a karaoke party

Step aside Mariah, there’s some new singers in town. Encourage your teammates to let their hair down at a karaoke party. It doesn’t matter whether anyone is a good singer or not – it’s all about being silly, having fun, and belting out your favourite hits. London Karaoke Hire can bring the party straight to you, providing premium karaoke systems. Their in-house built machines have over 90,000 tracks to choose from, smartphone compatibility, and multiple languages. It’s pretty impressive stuff. For a bit of extra fun, bring props, maracas, and kazoos. Heck, you’ve got everything you need to create a new supergroup!

Swingers ~ The crazy golf club

We believe that life is more fun when there is an element of competition, and that competition is best enjoyed with friends.

Swingers, the crazy golf club takes the holy trinity that is crazy golf, street food and amazing cocktails and combines them all into one incredible social experience
