Winter Boat Cruise

With the post-holiday quiet upon us, now is the perfect opportunity to reset, enjoy, and look at the year ahead. It can also be a great time to get together with friends or co-workers if the last few months proved a bit too busy. A January holiday party has the potential to be something to look forward to when your schedule slows down. We’ve rounded up a few ideas for some festive fun.

Winter on the water

Winter Boat Cruise

When you’re looking for a fun and distinct space for a festive gathering this month, consider getting out on the water. If you’re in a warmer climate, the opportunity to take to the sea (or lake or river) is an excellent idea year-round so why not book a party boat for your post-holiday festivities? For those experiencing more, shall we say, “seasonal” weather this winter, a boat with indoor space could be a great option, or a venue with a water view is an equally stunning alternative. Explore all the options on Eventective – whether you’re looking at palm trees or falling snow – there’s a venue on the water for you and your crew.

Classic Holiday Party

Sports Bar

A classic dinner party is a go-to for a reason. From upscale to casual, you can celebrate with style knowing that your colleagues will feel well taken care of and appreciated. Whether you’re on a roof deck overlooking the city lights or an intimate locale with a roaring fireplace, Eventective can help you explore venues that will check all the boxes and start the year off in a
celebratory way. With holiday season behind us, January is an ideal time to party without the added stress. Find the perfect function room to elevate your event with pressure-free planning and set the tone for 2023.

Right up your alley

Bowling Alley

What better way to ring in 2023 than with a fun experience that’ll inspire team-building and bonding? Start the year off with a get-together that’s themed around something active, from bowling to art-making. With a variety of venues offering activities, there’s no shortage of opportunity to get creative in the new year with no experience needed. A sip and paint night is always a crowd-pleaser, or, if you’re in the mood for a little friendly competition, consider something like Topgolf or a local bowling alley. When you include an activity, it’s always fun to see friends or co-workers in a new and different setting. They’ll definitely surprise you with their skills – add food and drinks and you’re good to go.

The great outdoors

Outdoor Venue

January is a great time to reset and think outside the box if you’re in a post-holiday haze. An outdoor event to kick off the year will invigorate and inspire, no matter what the weather. Considering a skating party? Try a local rink where you can show off your skills or enjoy an apres-skate hot chocolate with a dose of nostalgia. If you happen to be in an area where the
winter temps are less frozen and more frozen margarita, search Eventective for hundreds of beachfront venues that’ll put you in a vacation state of mind – no PTO needed. Whether you’re in snow boots or flip flops, a breath of fresh air is the perfect way to kick off 2023.

Don’t worry, be hoppy
