There are thousands of bars in NYC, it’s one of the things that make the city so amazing but the abundance of choices can also be polarizing. Where do I go? Will my team like it? What if everyone hates my choice? All of those thoughts run through your mind when planning a team outing. So I’m here to break down four great NYC bars for team outings.


Garden at Cannibal NYC

Located in NoMad, Cannibal is a meat lovers dream. The menu is focused around sustainable meat and seasonal vegetables paired with over 300+ beer choices. With two different private room options (one being the outdoor garden) this hidden neighborhood gem is definitely going to be a hit with the team.


Bar at Distilled in NYC

Distilled refers to themselves as a “New American Public House” and they serve up redefined regional dishes and cocktails. Their focus on bringing the community together is evident in their approachable communal seating. Looking for something more private for the team? Distilled offers many options for private or semi-private events including a private room or semi-private roped off bar area. Located in TriBeCa, Distilled is the perfect spot for any offices in the lower west side of Manhattan

Blu on Park

Main dining room at Blue on Park NYC

Blu on Park is definitely one of our most unique venues with an ambiance that combines the glamour of the prohibition era with the sleek sense of style. The blue and gold detailing through the first floor bar and lounge is definitely something that will impress the team. Couple that with the opulent dining area and multiple private event rooms and you have a sophisticated bar for your team outing. If your team finds themselves on the east side, I highly recommend stopping in here for a drink.

Whiskey Blue

VIP Couch at Whiskey Blue in the W hotel lounge NYC

This high end lounge located in the lobby of the W New York features a large spirits menu, chic interior and snakeskin-leather club chairs. The cocktail menu is an ever-changing selection of libations that focuses on market fresh ingredients and seasonal favorites. Rent the whole bar out for a larger team outing or just take over the VIP couch for your crew, there are multiple options when it comes to hosting your team at Whiskey Blue.
