Last week, in our 10 Tropical Event Themes for Corporate Events feature, we suggested a number of tropical event venue ideas.
To keep the creative juices flowing, here are examples of venues where some of the tropical event ideas we shared (and more) can come to life, even if it's snowing outside. With the right venue and, sometimes, themed menu options, event planners can concentrate on other aspects of the event.
Julius Banquet Centre (Toronto)
With decor inspired by ancient Rome, Julius Banquet Centre in Toronto is ideal for Roman- themed events. The venue can accommodate 500 guests for dining and there is ample parking for 400 cars.
The Conservatory at The Barbican (UK)
Groups of up to 72 can enjoy the lush surroundings of The Conservatory at The Barbican in London.
Tropical fish, birds and 2,000 species of tropical plants and trees create an ambiance under a glass dome to protect your guests from the frosty weather outside.
Tropical Escape Restaurant & Lounge (Brampton, Ontario)
Specializing in Guyanese fare with some Jamaican and Trinidadian dishes, Tropical Escape Restaurant & Lounge, in Brampton near Toronto, can accommodate 35 - 40 guests for a sit-down dinner and still have enough room for dancing.
Club Salsatheque (Montreal)
To create a Latin Fever event that is "muy caliente", Club Salsatheque is the perfect pick. Neon lights, disco balls and dance floors with colorful squares that light up, create an atmosphere of excitement. This hot, tri-level nightclub where guests can dance to the rhythms of salsa, merengue, and bachata can also be used for private events.
Todd English's Tuscany (Connecticut)
Celebrity Chef Todd English has created a taste of Tuscany complete with indoor caves and waterfall in Mohegan Sun. There is a private dining room for 15 - 22 guests. Small groups can also enjoy a chef's table.
