Three Team Outing Ideas in the Arena District

You’ve planned the perfect meeting and now it’s time to plan a memorable team outing for after the meeting. We are very lucky that our space is in the heart of the Arena District in Downtown Columbus. That means you’re close to some of the best restaurants and entertainment the city has to offer after your all-day meeting.

There’s nothing wrong with a team happy hour. However, we challenge you to go above and beyond.  We think putting a “twist” on the ordinary is what makes a meeting memorable. Read on for our favorite team and corporate outing ideas in Columbus, Ohio.

Columbus Clippers Baseball Game

Head over to Huntington Park for America’s greatest pastime with your team! The Columbus Clippers have ticket packages for groups as well as options to rent suites for corporate outings.

Want to do some team building during the game? Check out our blog post about structured play on how to enhance your outing.

Downtown Columbus Segway Tour

The staff at sparkspace can personally vouch for this team activity! We loved going for a guided Segway ride altogether when we went during a special “Holiday Lights” tour last December. This is perfect if you’re looking for a small group activity.

Tours begin at the Convention Center (a short walk from our space) where you receive Segway driving directions and go for a spin on their test course before you hit the road.

Tours take you through Downtown Columbus and the Short North. Your tour guide gives you some history of the city as well as a hefty dose of humor. We did this as a team and loved it!

Nada Mexican Restaurant

Nothing brings people together like being gathered around the table with great food. Nada’s private party room provides an eclectic, communal feel along with their legendary tacos.

We love recommending team dinners in their private space because it’s a great atmosphere for conversation. Their private room can sit up to 24 at one large table or 30-35 guests in a standing, cocktail-style dinner with food displayed. The room is also equipped with AV equipment if you simply must continue your presentation from the day into dinner.
