Bring out your inner chef at Ateliers & Saveurs

If you're looking for a break from the same old office activities, why not try your hand at a culinary workshop given by Ateliers & Saveurs? Cocktail dinners, tapas, 3-course menus, freshly made pasta and so much more… All workshops are held in the best of spirits and in the company of consummate professionals, glass of wine included!

Dinner, drinks and burlesque at Bord’elle

Ready to be dazzled? Bord’elle has what you’re looking for! This club and restaurant is sure to make your corporate evenings shine with not only its elaborate and mouthwatering menus, but also a choice of acts that are as much aerial circus as they are burlesque, featuring feathers, sequins and acrobatics performed by talented artists at the top of their game. To whet your appetite just a little, here is a succulent sample of some of the dishes that grace the tables here: 6hr braised beef short rib, spicy salmon tartare, or vegan tartare with wild mushroom brunoise.

BEVO Bar + Pizzeria invites you over to roll the dough

Tired of sitting in front of a screen all day? Get your team on its feet and head to BEVO for a pizza-making workshop that is guaranteed fun for everyone. While your hands are in the dough, chef Giovanni Vella will share with you everything there is to know about his recipe, as well as the best ingredients to use when making a quality pizza to truly be proud of. Once the making and baking is done, you’ll even get to enjoy a delectable 3-course meal, including the very pizza you just created! This is the perfect activity to strengthen workplace bonds in a warm and playful setting the whole team will appreciate.

A moment of well-being at Milan Pole Dance Studio

To decompress your spine (and spirit) after those long work hours while developing strength and flexibility at the same time, the awesome people at Milan Pole Dance Studio propose a 60-minute team-building activity to do exactly that. Choose between a yoga, pilates, hula hoop or even a breathing and meditation class, and come reinforce your workplace relationships as together you learn the proper ways to stay in tip-top shape.

Getting rid of stress and bad posture with VSquare Fitness

Bring the wonders of physical activity directly into your workplace with VSquare Fitness, a 360 gym with a personalized approach based on 5 essential pillars: movement, nutrition, cardiovascular health, mindfulness and recovery. Start things off with a posture analysis in order to identify the optimal position to assume throughout your work day. Follow this up with a group class designed to melt away all that built-up stress and begin the new year as relaxed and ready as a team can be.

A scavenger hunt across Old Montreal with Guidatour

Whether of the creative or historical sort, the walking scavenger hunts offered by Guidatour are a truly unique experience to share together with colleagues. In groups of 4 to 5 participants, explore beautiful Old Montreal while taking on intriguing and educational challenges over the course of three exciting hours. This is a great opportunity to rediscover the neighbourhood in which you work, to forge lasting connections and to learn about the rich history that makes up a part of your day-to-day life. Once all the clue hunting is done, a winning team will be crowned and an alcoholic (or non-alcoholic) beverage will be offered to toast the end of this one-of-a-kind activity that you and your co-workers are sure to enjoy.

Collaborate to escape from A/Maze

Leadership, teamwork and communication are the keys you will need to solve the escape game that awaits you at A/Maze. Choose between Tesla’s Enigma, Secrets of a Shipping Empire or Dead Man’s Chest, and then put your team’s collaborative and problem-solving skills to the test. Once you have (hopefully!) escaped, reward yourselves at Inventions, a restaurant-bar situated on the premises featuring a selection of unusual and enigmatically named cocktails, including Alternating Current, Tesla’s Carré and Radioactive Sour.
