Teams receive a folder with all the details on a new wine bar they are planning to open. Each week they have to order stock, decide how many staff to employ and how much to pay them. They also decide on pricing, advertising, whether to diversify and whether to expand the business.
Decisions are filled out on a simple Decision Form which is fed into a laptop and the financial results printed together with relevant messages. Teams feel they really are running their own wine bar – this week there was money missing from the till? Presumably teams were not paying staff enough!!
A first class simulation! I ran 'The Wine Bar Game' as part of a five-day Management Effectiveness Workshop for 16 senior hotel managers. They rated it very highly indeed as it was action-packed, stimulating and extremely challenging. Each team felt they really were running their own wine bar.

A highly interactive team versus team activity.
M. Newman, Center Parcs
Highly recommend this game. I used 'The Wine Bar Game' with 300 managers – used on the first day of a week-long residential course, run over three months. Diversity was brilliant, teams who were on track making the wrong decision and coming last! Great fun, very interactive, good group training for people who hadn’t worked together before. It ticked all the boxes and got a week’s residential off to a good start.
Carol Morgan, Learning & Development Business Partner, Southern Water
A pleasure to use for both Trainer and delegates! I used 'The Wine Bar Game' on a course to increase commercial awareness and general management and teamwork with middle managers. The best learning points were that motivation increases with profit, and that you should treat staff well! It is a great activity and really keeps everyone interested and learning. The tricky part is getting them to agree to stop after Round 8! Well presented and thought-out.
Julia Wood, Key Assets Ltd
We used 'The Wine Bar Game' during a two-day management conference. The competition between the teams to be the best was immense! It helped participants focus their general business skills and took them into the realm of strategic planning.
S. Gidman, TBG Learning
We had an extremely successful afternoon with 'The Wine Bar Game'. We seemed to strike just the right balance between achieving our objectives and having some competitive fun!
A. Boothby, NHS Information Authority
As a novice trainer 'The Wine Bar Game' was straightforward to use.
