Office summer night out on the horizon? Looking for a spot for team building, or maybe you have a product launch in the works that needs the ideal locations?

Much like a hen or stag do, corporate events are usually about bringing together a bunch of disparate people to all have a good time together.

It can seem like a daunting task; food, drinks and activities are usually all involved, but we are here with our simple checklist that will make the planning process as easy as possible. Once you have the details sorted all that will be left to do is sit back and watch as your perfectly executed event unfolds. 

Picking the perfect place

First on the list is finding the ideal location. Do you need privacy, or is visibility your goal? If this is a social corporate event you will want to give people the opportunity to mix and mingle with places to sit, stand and dance if the mood takes.
For summer shindigs our roof terrace offers the chance to soak up the summer sun while still providing plenty of undercover space if things are less than summery. Take a gander at the rest of our spaces for hire to find the right one for you.

Feed The people

Next up, sustenance. You’ll not find soggy sandwiches or sad packed lunches that would make your mam ashamed here. Making sure that everyone is well-fed is a vital part of any successful corporate event. The Bad Bob’s menu features favourites that can easily be transformed into a group feast. 

Our personal favourites include Guinness tacos buddied up with loaded potato skins and sliders for an easy grab-and-go buffet that will keep everyone happy. 

When it comes to planning the food for your event, do your very best to get a handle on any allergies or food preferences your guests may have. Serving up a juicy beef burger to an investor who just happens to be a vegan is going to make for a lot of red faces!

Make it memorable

Food and drinks (we will get to them later) are of course, wonderful and not something to skimp on, but if you want to get people talking, then an activity is an easy way to do it. Think about adding a custom-made pub quiz to get people chatting. If you love escape rooms, did you know there are companies that do tabletop versions?

If you want to take advantage of our cracking location in the heart of Temple Bar consider organising a walking tour as part of your plans. We’d be happy to put you in touch with people we know that offer good craic and reasonable rates if you want to get out and about. 

Indulge in some quality drinks

When the boss is bankrolling a visit to the pub everyone is happy! Setting up a tab is one of the easiest ways to keep everyone happy, but we can also arrange drink tokens to let everyone have a few drinks of their choice at their own pace.

Don’t forget you can take it up a notch with our range of cocktails and shots that are sure to get the party started and deals made! We are in Ireland of course, so if you want to arrange for a flight or three of some quality whiskeys, we can certainly help you out with that. 

Plan for an after party

There Is that classic line “You don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here”. Well at Bad Bobs you can stay till pretty late. Once business is wrapped up, teams have been successfully built, and products launched into the stratosphere, you can kick back and hit the dance floor as Bad Bobs transforms into the most hopping late-night club in Temple Bar.

If your event finishes early in the day but you think you might want to come back later to properly let your hair down, have a word with our crack team of staff, ask nicely, and they might be able to pull some strings and get you on our guest list to skip the queue and get you set up for a night of drinks and good times.
