Everyone has attended a super lame holiday party. Often the food is crap, (if you get anything more than sad looking appetizers), people are forced into activities like karaoke and “team building”, or you had to watch your drunken coworker do inappropriate things like get drunk and hump a Willie Nelson statue.
Luckily, we have a solution for you! This year, host your company holiday party at Esther’s Follies. Be the office hero you deserve to be. Here’s why to trust us for your holiday party:
You tell us how many people will attend and the date you want; we handle it from there! In one phone call, the holiday party is booked, catering is arranged, and show tickets are reserved.
2.You Choose the Alcohol and Soft Drinks Budget
If you want to keep things on the low-cost side, you’ll love our cash bar. Our drinks (from wine to beer to famous margaritas) are some of the cheapest drinks on 6th St. If you really want to make the party special, you can offer drink coupons or even an open bar.
3.Our Catering Menu is Delicious
Your company can enjoy gourmet hearty hot and cold appetizers like salmon platters, deviled eggs, ceviche, chicken kabobs, baked brie, and homemade meatballs, just to name a few options. If you want us to handle dinner as well, there’s a choice of four mouthwatering buffet package options, from comfort food like BBQ to elegant meals like Chicken Marsala. We also have great options for vegetarians.
4.It Builds Culture
Austin employers must be competitive to keep and retain great employees. If you’re trying to establish company culture (or if you already have and want to reinforce it), the holiday party is a great opportunity to demonstrate what you’re all about. Have an awards ceremony before the party or consider inviting clients to the celebration for maximum impact.
Your employees want to have a good time. There is a reason holiday parties have a bad reputation for being lame. While it might seem insignificant in the grand scheme of things, having a holiday party shows you’re a company that values employees’ happiness—and that you’re a genuinely fun place to work.
6.Customize the Show for Even Bigger Laughs
Let us know if you want us to customize the show for you. We can sneak in people’s names, events, successes from the last year, and even pull certain people up onstage. We keep it fun and playful while creating a side-splitting memory for the organization.
7.Parking is Cheap and Easy
Don’t force your employees to spend money on taxis, or circle the block for 30 minutes trying to park. There is charter bus parking just a few blocks from Esther’s, or individuals can park just two minutes away in the covered Austin Convention Center building for just $10.
8.It Helps You Get to Know Each Other
Getting to know your employees and coworkers as people is essential for teams to succeed. It’s easy to break the ice and talk about new things when you have just seen a mind-bending magic trick that everyone is trying to figure out. Or, you can recap the funny sketches you saw while sipping drinks on the waterfall patio.
9.It’s Team Building, Without Being Cheesy
Celebrating and laughing together is a great opportunity for your employees to get to know one another. Employee bonding in a social context is a key element of team building, which is necessary to produce the best results. And regardless of the bottom line, it’s just fun to get to know new people, especially in such a festive setting!
