Team Building Events

Dabble offers a variety of team building options for groups of 2 to 100 people:

  • Team Building
  • Corporate Outings
  • Convention Groups
  • Client Entertaining

We are happy to customize an event for you and your group that is sure to be fun, collaborative, and interactive!

Standard event options include the following, but we are always open to customizing to accommodate your unique idea:

Cooking Classes

Interactive, delicious fun! Guests learn knife skills, seasoning, and other tips from our chef-instructor, and work in teams to prepare a menu that they will enjoy family-style at the event’s conclusion. Choose from our standard menus or work with our culinary director to customize your event to suit your group’s needs. Cooking classes can be structured as a cook-off contest or a market basket challenge for that added element of fun competition.

Painting Classes

A great option for larger groups! Our artist-instructor will guide you each through creating your paintings, either 8 x 10 (great for groups traveling by plane) or 16 x 20 paintings. Choose a design from our gallery, or a custom design can be created for your group’s event for an additional $50 fee.

Combination Cooking-and-Painting Classes

Our Dabble-exclusive combo classes feature the best of what Dabble has to offer, all in one event! Guests will paint an 8 x 10 painting (perfect for groups traveling by plane) while the dish they prepared is cooking, and then enjoy their dish and finished paintings during unstructured time at the end of their event. Choose Pizza & Painting, Pasta & Painting, or Cocktails and Canvas, and choose a design from our 8 x 10 painting gallery, or we will design a custom painting for an additional $50 fee.

Mingle Events

You choose either a cooking OR painting activity, in combination with plenty of time to socialize as you enjoy wine, cheese and charcuterie. Choose from Pizza Mingles, Painting Mingles, or Mixology Mingles.

Food Tours – by Foot, Van, or Bus!

Roll With The Foodies! Food tours for from 2-200+ people provide the unique opportunity to check out the specialties of 4-5 Nashville hot spots on a narrative tour that covers Nashville food, history, and culture! Food equals a full meal and guests on driving tours are welcome to BYOB on the van or coach. Food tours can be customized to your group’s food and drink preferences, and, depending on the tour chosen and with advance notice, some dietary restrictions can be accommodated.

Photo Safaris

Nashville is a beautiful, colorful, photogenic town! Photo Safari guests travel by foot, van, or coach to a variety of Nashville parks and neighborhoods with the best photo ops.
