You and your team can get in on the fun by renting out the venue for a group event of up to 88 people. You’ll have access to a private lane and targets (or the whole venue, depending on your group size), as well as a personal instructor to give some pointers to help improve your aim.

3. Record your own theme song with the Sound Kitchen

Nashville may be known for its country music scene, but you don’t have to be a star to write and record your own songs here. You and your team can be recording artists for a day by attending a team-building workshop at the Sound Kitchen.

Professional musicians will lead you in small groups through the process of writing a song about your company’s motto or mission. The workshop includes food and drinks to keep your team satisfied while you enjoy the music.

4. Throw a painting party with Dabble Events

Get your paintbrush ready for a team-building workshop with Dabble Events. They offer a fun mix of painting classes, cooking classes, and tours to get your team working together and exploring their creative side.

Book an event at their downtown Nashville studio or host them at your office or Peerspace venue for a fun standalone activity. You can even choose a cook-and-paint event, in which you’ll complete an 8×10 painting while waiting for your meal to be ready!

One unique venue option for a team building gathering with Dabble Events is this 1920s historic building made modern in Whites Creek. It’s a rustic multi-use space that was once a Masonic Lodge in the 19th century. Nowadays, it boasts an open floor plan, a full kitchen, and a brick back patio, so all the space you need to paint and cook! The fact that it’s available to book with ease through Peerspace is just the cherry on the sundae.

Check out this rave review from a Peerspace user who booked this lodge for their team event: “Our corporate team recently had the privilege of hosting a team building and educational workshop at the historic Maison James building, an exquisite blend of history and functionality. Led by our remarkable host, Anna, our experience surpassed all expectations. Maison James’s elegant architecture provided an inspiring backdrop for our activities, while Anna’s unwavering dedication ensured every detail was seamlessly attended to. Her professionalism and warmth made us feel valued throughout our time there.”

5. Hit the track with K1 Speed

Go-karting is a surefire way to feel like a kid again, no matter your age. Bring that excitement to your team when you book some time at K1 Speed.

It’s a huge indoor track designed to challenge you and your coworkers as you put the pedal to the metal in your electric go-kart. Enhance your team building event by utilizing the on-site meeting rooms before noshing down on tasty grub at the Paddock lounge and restaurant. Either way, it will be a team building day your group will never forget.

6. Ride the zip lines at AdventureWorks

Take your team to new heights with the outdoor activities at AdventureWorks, including zip lines, bridges, and other ropes course challenges.

You can also customize your team-building workshop based on a program focused on leadership development, Myers-Briggs assessments, and more. Or, choose from other options, such as a kayak quest or an urban scavenger hunt. You and your team are sure to create heart-pumping memories that will last a lifetime!

7. Explore virtual reality at Digital Worlds VR

A virtual reality team building experience is a great activity for any time of year. At Digital Worlds VR, you can choose from a variety of games to play, including puzzle games, role-playing games, and more.

If you rent the full venue for your private event, you’ll even have access to seven VR stations and a seating area to watch while your colleagues play. This is also a fun team building idea in Nashville for small to mid-sized teams looking for a high-tech, interactive experience!

8. Solve the clues at the Escape Game Nashville

If virtual reality isn’t your thing, solve the clues at Escape Game Nashville. Here, you and your team will have just one hour to solve a prison break, a museum heist, or one of the venue’s other puzzles. These rooms are cleverly designed so that you have an immersive experience that requires you to work together to win the game.

Book ahead to reserve the venue for your group, and be sure to debrief afterward to discuss how you can apply these skills at the office.

Bike tours are a fun way to explore a new city or to see your home turf in a new way. For an even more exciting adventure, board the Nashville Pedal Tavern for a BYOB outing on a 15-seat bike! Choose from tours through downtown, the Broadway district, and more.

This is a fun day or nighttime activity that can take the place of a typical happy hour outing. Tours last around 90 minutes, and you can book more than one bike to accommodate larger groups of people.

Be sure to pack your cooler and make a reservation for a tasty restaurant after all that pedaling! One of our favorites is this eclectic industrial neighborhood bar in West Nashville. Along with its fun vintage decor, welcoming vibes, tasty drinks, and beautiful covered patio, it has a full kitchen and a catering menu for you to peruse and fit to your team’s needs.

11. Play volleyball at the SandBar Nashville

Nashville isn’t exactly known for its beaches, but that doesn’t have to stop you from having fun in the sand. Book a team-building workshop at the SandBar, where you can build sandcastles, do yoga, play beach volleyball, and more.

This is a great way to take off your shoes and enjoy the sun on a hot summer’s day — and cool off with a fresh coconut cocktail.
