This month, we’re highlighting Bankside activities to inspire your next ‘team building’ session. Whether you’re celebrating a company achievement, have an incentive afternoon or are looking to entertain, you can find something unique and interesting right on your doorstep.

Cocktail evening events at Hixter:

This year Mark’s Bar Bankside will be hosting a series of collaborations with their British drinks producers to create a calendar of events you won’t want to miss. The next event, on Tuesday 20 May, is a feature on Cotswold Distillery. Your team will enjoy a mini-dish menu of seasonal food paired to four Cotswold Distillery cocktails. This is a great post-work evening team activity, whether you’re welcoming new starters, or celebrating a company achievement, make sure to do it in style at Mark’s Bar.

The session also includes artisan cheese & charcuterie from Borough Market to share. This activity would suit a smaller more intimate group, whether an incentive treat or client entertaining.
