Corporate Summer events can be as important as Xmas parties to celebrate company successes, boost team morale, welcome new members of the team – and (hopefully) enjoy the good weather. It’s also a great way to break up the year and create something positive for the team to focus on.

Regular events can increase staff retention and attract new employees, attributing to a positive company culture where staff are well looked after and celebrated. They also give staff a chance to create bonds outside of the office which can reduce employee turnover. Plus it’s tax deductible!

But you already know all this right? You just want some ideas on how to make a summer party one to remember! Here some of HOST’s best summer party options –


The ultimate summer party experience offering both outdoor and indoor space to suit the ever changing British weather – an afternoon on a canal boat is the perfect choice.

In our SUMMER CRUISING package it’s all aboard the pleasure cruiser, ready to cast away from Camden for a two hour voyage of London’s Regent’s canal.

With comfortable table booth seating, the boat features large slide-to-open windows throughout to ensure everyone gets a panoramic view of the gorgeous surroundings. When the sun is shining, there’s retracting roof sections to take the boat al fresco in the warmer months.

The boat will take you through some of the most gorgeous parts of London, including London Zoo, Regent’s Park, and Little Venice. There, you circle the island before returning to Camden.

Then it’s time to head to a tropical rooftop just a few minutes walk away, for a Mexican three course set menu with cocktails and beer. With its retro Palm Springs vibes, the venue offers an oasis of calm, right in the middle of crazy Camden. The palm tree rooftop space offering views over Camden Market, the perfect tropical paradise!


Last but not least, your team will blow off some steam with a night at karaoke! Not just another karaoke bar – this is a place to cut loose, be yourself and truly sing from the heart. Your group will enjoy 2 hours of karaoke in your own private room.

Using state of the art technology, select a song from one of the themed playlists, or browse the 11,000+ song catalogue – there is something for everyone, from current chart hits to old school classics. Enjoy room service from the extensive cocktail menu using the iconic “THIRSTY” button! The perfect end to the perfect summer party.



As soon as the sun is shining, everyone wants to hit Londons best rooftops for amazing views accompanied by excellent drinks!

In our BINGO BASH package, the team will get warmed up and indulge in a bit of light competition with a high quality and fully interactive cocktail making class, where you’ll be taught by the in-house mixologists to make (then drink) a selection of five seasonal cocktails.  The classes focus on 100% involvement – every guest uses fine liquor, fresh ingredients and specialist equipment to make their own cocktails in their own area behind one of the custom-built cocktail bars. Non-drinkers will also be catered to, with a top quality selection of 0% options – no-one gets left out!

You’ll get hands-on with every guest making (and drinking) four cocktails before competing to create their own original cocktail. Who will be crowned the cocktail making champions?!

After the class it’s time to head upstairs to the amazing rooftop terrace! Featuring panoramic views overlooking the City, the south-facing terrace is situated right in the heart of Shoreditch. It’s the perfect spot for a team summer party!

Your group will enjoy the space whilst being served pizza’s made on-site courtesy of their pop-up pizza kitchen.

Cocktail Making Class

After spending the afternoon in the sunshine it’s then time to head to for an evening of social bingo, where you’re invited to join in a world of play, where friendly faces are ready to take you under their bingo wings for a night of fun with enticing prize – expect an experience your team will want to tell their friends about.

The evening includes incredible line ups of comedians, performers and musicians. Expect huge prizes and a one off custom built ball machine that must be seen to be believed. It’s the ideal spot for your workforce to unwind, let loose and win big!



Summer is a great opportunity to get outside and get your workforce moving – great for the mind and the body. London has a multitude of public parks that are the perfect setting (we’ll always have a studio as back up for bad weather).

Our STRIKE A POSE package features VOGA – is a holistic calorie-burning cardio workout, inspiring participants to feel a sense of self-empowerment through pose, alignment and style. An alternative to traditional wellness methods, it’s the perfect balance of health & hedonism.

It’s very different from a “standard” exercise class and can be set to any pace so it’s the perfect inclusive activity.

If you’re looking for a more restorative downtime session VOGA Slow is a dreamy session designed to destress to the likes of Chaka Khan and Grace Jones.

Or if you’re looking for a more uplifting session for your team, VOGA Xpress is a mash up of upbeat tunes and signature VOGA moves set to motivate everyone to move and express (perfect paired with a cocktail).

It’s a really unique way to have the whole team feeling amazing – and afterwards you’ll hit Regent’s Canal for an evening drinks reception on a floating barge. The experience includes a cocktail on arrival with canapés and bottomless prosecco throughout. London’s canals possess an enchanting, rural feel, despite being minutes from busy roads and commerce, and this oasis-like event space offers an evening of calm right in the centre of London. Relax on the large stern as the sun sets…a one-of-a-kind day that your team will never forget!
