Of all the fun team building activities in Detroit, say hello to the one that will soon become a yearly tradition! Why, you ask ?
You’ll work together to get the bar rolling, leaving the forced office talk in the dust!
Extend the outing before/after on-site with fantastic food/drink options. No need to arrange transportation!
Tours are free when your boss pays. Really though- put your spreadsheet wizardry to use and compare our BYO food/drink policy to anything else!
Stephen and I (Brian) spent a few years in corporate America before we started The HandleBar. That means we’ve done our fair share of lame office outings that get a lackluster turnout or just don’t really end up in much actual team building. Since 2012 we’ve been watching corporate groups come out and have fun on The HandleBar and we’ve learned a lot. Let us help make you look like a pro-planner with a few of our tips below.
If you didn’t know, you’re at least now realizing that planning a corporate outing can take time. Pleasing everyone is no easy task, but that’s what we’re about to do! Plus, this is your reputation on the line and you don’t want it to flop. Don’t worry, we’ve got 5 pro-tips below to make sure the outing you’re planning is going to be one that is talked about for years! (for real!)
We give you a ton of information not only in this blog, but once you book a tour via emails and text messages we send you. If you can believe it, we’ve even been told that we send you TOO MUCH info, haha. Use this information to your advantage and share it with everyone in your group. The more people know exactly what to expect (parking links, rules, waivers, carry out beer options if you’re in a hurry and don’t have time to pickup drinks on the way over, etc) the less of a chance you get one of those complainer type co-workers insinuating you didn’t communicate something clearly enough. We’re experts at big groups and the city of Detroit so lean on us for any questions that you guys have. We’ve operated HandleBar tours since 2012 and I can honestly say your group will be giving you major props if you book a team building tour with us!
