4 Cross-departmental Scalextric Competition

Bring together members from your various company departments to compete at our giant slot car track. Our huge 8-lane track can act as an entertaining format to bring together members of divisions within your company who may not normally cross paths. Whether you mix up the teams or allow departments to play together we can provide a suitable format to encourage a competitive night of cross-departmental team bonding.

The track itself can be installed in your own office or alternatively in a hired venue. The portable track is delivered in separate parts and within 45 minutes we can have it set and ready for a night of high octane slot car racing. The track itself measures a whopping 4.5m by 2.1m and we man the track for you for the night whilst organising the night for you so you are free to enjoy the evening and compete against your colleagues.

Check out the track in action here at our most recent office based Giant Scalextric event.

3 Client entertainment Horse Racing Event

If you have trouble arranging the time to treat your clients to a night at the races, why not let the racecourse come to you. Our horse racing events provide a perfect platform for enticing clients to come and pay a visit and allow for some all -important networking.

Our pre-recorded races can be displayed via in-house equipment if required or if unavailable our package can include a large 2m by 2m screen to display the races on via a projector.

So to recreate the genuine feel of a day at the races we can dress up your office or external venue with picket fencing, astro and even toy horses. Our team, fully dressed in jockey silks or flat caps, can act as ticket sellers and arrange the all-important prize giving at the end of the night to the luckiest punter in the paddock!

2 Branded Casino Night

Just missing out on top spot are our branded casino nights. Branding can provide for a very memorable evening and clients will leave with fond memories and a positive association with your company. Branding your casino evening can stretch the budget a little but often provides great feedback and positive ROI on your event.

We can brand the tables for you and the casino playing chips, and guests are then able to take a branded chip home with them as a permanent tangible memory of the great night you put on for them.

Furthermore we can store the branded casino cloth and chips for you to allow you to run the event again in the future. Check out some of the branded tables and chips below we have made for previous branded casino nights.

 

 

1 Client Poker Night

At number 1 is the ever popular and hugely successful client poker night. Poker is certainly one of the more popular games we provide due to how sociable a game it can be. Tables seat 10 players at one time and colleagues and clients can pit their wits against each other across the baize. Our team of Poker dealers are amongst some of the best in the world and as such you will be in good hands. We can teach guests how to play as well by providing tuition sessions prior to the start of your poker tournament.

We can cater for small client entertainment nights as well as much larger crowds thanks to our stock of over 30 tables. We can install our poker tables in your office or an external venue.

Venues we have installed poker tables in have included the Playboy Club, The London Aquarium and the Savoy Hotel Ballroom. We can help with recommendations on venues as a fairly large space is required.

Casino Hire London

Top 10 casino hire venues

 

Struggling to decide on which venue to book for your next event? Have a look at our Top 10 venues for 2014.

 

2013 saw Viva Vegas travel across Europe and the UK providing casino hire services for a whole range of corporate events, charity events and private parties. The main bulk of our work across the year is in London. As such we have the privilege of working in some of London’s top venues.

 

Below are the Top 10 venues we have supplied casino tables for during 2013.

 

 

10 Madame Tussauds

 

Home to the wax works of the rich and famous with some figurines worth in excess of £125,000! Madame Tussauds has been a mainstay of London culture since its opening. So much so they have had in excess of 500 million visitors! Event spaces are available in the evening with plenty of room for a casino night or poker event.

 

9 The Royal Opera House

 

This iconic landmark positioned in the beautiful backstreets of Covent Garden has event spaces available all year round, with Xmas parties already available to book for 2014!

 

8 – Concrete

 

This nightclub situated below Shoreditch House is popular with the edgy bohemian crowds of East London. The club is often hired out for private parties and has an urban feel to it. The service is of a great standard thanks to its owners the Soho House Group. The space is perfect for intimate events with suitable alcoves to fit 2-3 casino tables in.

 

7 – Claridges

 

This Mayfair Hotel oozes class and sophistication. The higher end of the price bracket with function rooms available on contacting the hotel.

 

6 – High Road House

 

Another offering from The Soho House Group to make the Top 10. Based in Chiswick, the beautiful West London location attracts a good crowd at night. The downstairs space is available to hire. Just ask for Anna! We have run poker tournaments here for local businesses as well as popular Christmas party nights.

 

5 – Pennyhill Park

 

Surrey’s largest venue perfect for casino hire in the home counties. The huge amount of space at this venue means it is popular with weddings in particular. Blackjack and Roulette table hire is particularly popular for weddings for those who didn’t bring their dancing shoes. The large gardens lead to this being particularly popular in Summer.

 

4 – The Natural History Museum

 

Home to some of worlds most amazing historical artifacts in the exhibition road area of West London. We recently ran a casino event here for a large company party and the surroundings in the venue alongside the casino went down a treat with the client.

 

3 – Fabric

 

East London’s largest nightclub closed its doors this Christmas for a company staff party with over 1500 guests in attendance. We supplied 7 casino tables and 4 slot machines to dress the venue for a casino night with a bang. With the music on 11 and the free bar all night long, guests had a wild time which the staff at Fabric were more than prepared for.

 

2 – Adam Street Club

 

Situated just off the Strand, behind the narrow black front door lies a beautiful little private members club with event space for hire. We are often supplying equipment of all sorts here from Table Tennis to Poker Tables, Blackjack Tables, Giant Jengas, Air Hockey tables and more. Highly recommended and unlucky not to make the top spot.

 

1 – The Dorchester

 

We were fortunate to supply for a Christmas party here in 2013 and the decor is astounding! Service is 2nd to none coupled with impressive artwork and all the glamour you would expect from London’s top hotel. Add extra grandeur to your event and splash out of having your very own casino at the Dorchester Hotel.

 

poker nights

Play Poker at the Aquarium

Poker Nights with a Twist

 

We all need to unwind occasionally because work can be all-consuming and stressful. Fortunately the good people at Threadneedle Investments know how to reward their staff and clients with an evening of free entertainment. Colleagues and long-standing clients were invited to play a poker tournament at the London Aquarium on our brand new poker tables.

 

The attendees instantly got into the spirit of things by fishing for straights and flushes, whilst the sharks picked off the weaker players!

 

The tournament kicked off with 60 players entering, playing across 6 tables. Those who made the final table enjoyed the experience of fighting for the top prize on Threadneedles’ very own branded poker table. For those who were not so fortunate to make the final table we ran a secondary tournament on the remaining tables.

 

The unique venue and the poker tournament combined made for a fun-filled night of entertainment thoroughly enjoyed by all and we even received a glowing testimonial from our client.

 

Just a quick note to say thank you for another great event.  You & the team did a wonderful job!
