Meeting breaks are an essential opportunity to relax and refocus participants. The James Hotel offers an exciting array of pre-planned Curated Meeting Breaks to excite and engage all in attendance.

The Art of Beef:  Meet with culinary experts from David Burke’s Primehouse as they discuss the intricate dry aging process. Partakers can taste some of David Burke’s Primehouse specialties, such as Mini Dry-Aged Ribeye Sandwiches or Truffle Asiago Skins.  For the bold, there is an optional tour of The James Hotel’s dry aging room.

World of Tea: To unwind from your stressful meetings, taste the various rare teas available on David Burke’s Primehouse menu. Relax with your colleagues and enjoy finger foods.

Chocolate Workshop: For those with a sweet tooth, watch and learn while the pastry team from David Burke’s Primehouse whips up different flavors of chocolate fondue. Afterward, coconut macaroons, fresh fruit and marshmallows are available for your dipping pleasure.

Bourbon Tasting: The James Hotel’s beverage connoisseur will help you explore the depths of a selection of hand-picked Kentucky Bourbons. Tips on food pairing will be offered, as well as a demonstration on how to prepare two of The James’ most popular cocktails.

Uncorked: For a real break, enjoy a wine tasting of Cabernet Sauvignons from various regions. This option includes cellar notes and a blind tasting.

Break to Give: Meeting breaks can do more than refresh participants; they can refresh the world around them.  The James Hotel’s Break to Give program lets meeting guests take a moment to refocus outward on their communities. Ask your sales manager about the many options we offer to make a positive difference.

Second City: Improve on presentation skills, networking and how to better work together as a team, with a Second City led course on how acting skills can help boost your business skills.  Learn how to be a better listener, think on your feet, create and innovate quickly, and communicate powerfully with the help of a talented Second City improv teacher.  Part of The James Cultural Collection program.
