Be the office hero. The holidays are approaching fast, which means your office needs to find a venue for its annual celebration — and it needs to do it soon. Before the spot gets snatched up for other corporate events, you need to book The Drake Hotel for a night. Find out why it’s the perfect venue for your office party.
The Drake Hotel
Toronto’s Drake Hotel has been the ultimate venue for show-stopping events for over a decade. It has five different locations over three floors under one roof, so you can have attendees drinking cocktails on the Sky Yard or dancing in the Underground. It has a capacity of 650 guests, so the whole office and their plus-ones can attend.
The venue offers more than square footage for your office party. Every location at The Drake Hotel is visually compelling. There are permanent and rotating art installations in different rooms that will make attendees pull out their smartphones to snap photos. And custom playlists give each floor different ambient energies. It’s unlike any other event space that you can find.
One of the things that makes it hard to find cool holiday party venues is that they don’t have food and drink services there. You’d have to do more research and find a reputable catering company to feed your guests. Well, this location already has exceptional catering services.
The catering menus emphasize the Drake’s love of local, seasonal and high-quality food. They make a considerable amount of ingredients from scratch. The sister-site The Drake Commissary makes popular ingredients like artisanal bread, cured meats and pickles found directly in the catering dishes. The company is willing to go the extra mile to make sure that guests enjoy their dining experience.
If you’re interested in staying on theme, you can pick the holiday feast option from their special events menu. The chef-manned station offers modern twists on these classic festive dishes:
- Roast beef
- Leg of lamb
- Brussel sprouts salad
- Mashed potatoes
- Yorkshire pudding
- Roasted carrots
- Chestnut stuffing
Or you could surprise your guests with food stations that are a little more out-of-the-box. Pick a taco bar with fillings like pulled pork and jerk chicken, or a college student station with instant ramen and grilled cheese sandwiches. There are so many fun and delicious options to choose from. You can see why the catering services are event favourites for organizations like Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada and Design Exchange.
The Drake is always willing to go above and beyond to make sure your holiday party goes without a hitch. If you want to get a photo booth or entertainers, the event staff can help you find the best floor for these features. If you want to offer door prizes for employees that deserve special holiday presents, the hotel can provide gift cards or sweet treats from catering as memorable party favours. Let them know your plans, and they’ll work with you to make them happen.
Employees don’t want to throw a potluck in the office breakroom for the holidays. They want to get away from their desks and let loose. You can defy expectations and blow them away with a fantastic bash at The Drake Hotel.
