How to make the most of your corporate event

It all begins with the venue

Your venue choice sets the stage, quite literally, for the entire event.

The Glass House in Minneapolis offers not just a space, but an ambiance—an energy that resonates with your vision. As you plan your corporate event, consider the pivotal factors: Does the venue align with the atmosphere you wish to cultivate? Does it offer seamless flow for activities? Are amenities like furnishings, AV equipment, and culinary offerings up to par? Is the location easily accessible with convenient parking options? Let Glass House make your next event up to par!

Work with skilled local vendors

Producing an exceptional event requires a collaborative effort. At Glass House, we recognize the value of working with proficient local vendors. To streamline your planning process, we've curated a list of the finest in the area. Our Resource Guide acts as your compass, directing you to trusted partners who excel in various domains.

The North Loop and downtown Minneapolis also offer a host of high quality hotels. Our favorite is the Hewing Hotel in the heart of the North Loop. Other options include Embassy Suites by Hilton Minneapolis Downtown, Residence Inn by Marriott Minneapolis Downtown/North Loop, Hotel Ivy, AC Hotel by Marriott Minneapolis Downtown, and Element Minneapolis Downtown.

A great bar program

The essence of any social gathering often revolves around the bar. At Glass House, we understand the evolving preferences of our guests. While spirits and alcoholic beverages remain integral, the rise of the non-alcoholic (N/A) trend cannot be overlooked. Our bar program caters to diverse palates, offering a spectrum of tantalizing options, including innovative N/A concoctions. From refreshing mocktails to artisanal sodas, every guest finds something to indulge in, ensuring inclusivity and enjoyment for all. More bar details can be found in our Ways to Bar.

At Glass House, we recognize that culinary experiences are integral to the success of any event. While we don't handle catering in-house, we've handpicked a selection of top-tier catering partners who share our commitment to excellence. These culinary experts specialize in crafting unforgettable menus tailored to your preferences. Whether you prefer a formal plated dinner, a relaxed buffet-style spread, or interactive food stations, our trusted partners ensure a culinary journey that delights the senses and elevates your event to new heights.
