Holiday Office Party REIMAGINED

by Jordan Cutler    November 29, 2021

This year, give your party planning committee a break and switch up your classic holiday celebration and office outings for some memories Downtown! Spend an evening out and about as you “cheers” to a great year on work in Downtown. After all, the biggest perk of working Downtown is getting to explore it!

Spend the evening cycling through the streets of Downtown with BCycle! Choose exciting locations to explore, like Winter Wanderland on Bagby or Main Street Lights. Get everyone involved by snapping some holiday office pictures as you cycle through and explore the holiday magic! Make your last stop at Market Square Park for some more holiday fun and then head to the bars throughout the Historic District to share pics and enjoy the real holiday spirits. Don’t forget to tag us in those cute office outing selfies using #DowntownHouston!

From now until the New Year, your favorite specialty food store (aka Phoenicia) is having Adult Gingerbread House Decorating Happy Hours! Get in the holiday spirit with your office crew and schedule a private party at MKT Bar where you can sip specialty cocktails, sing to holiday music and spend the afternoon decorating (and snacking) on your holiday creation!

POST Houston is here! Take a trip with your office mates and experience the project that has Houston on edge. Spend a long lunch eating your way “family-style” through restaurants like ChòpnBlọk, Andes Café and more. They say one of the best ways to bond is through food and POST Market unites a variety of international cuisine vendors in one exciting hub–for everyone to enjoy.

Green Mountain Energy Ice is back! Swap out your work shoes for skates and enjoy an afternoon with your coworkers. Right after work head to Discovery Green for an evening of ice skating. See who the ice princes and princess of the office are as you glide under glittering lights and get a head start on holiday celebrations.

Who doesn’t love a good karaoke? Visit Dean’s on Wednesday nights at 9pm or Sunny’s Bar on Thursday nights for some good old-fashioned karaoke. Have your go at holiday classics or see who rocks the hardest for an unforgettable night. Either way, sing your heart out with your Downtown office buddies and make memories that will last everyone a lifetime. Now THAT’S the holidays done right!
