What happens in the Break Room
The Break Room gives you the chance so receive stress on your own terms. Felt the need to break something so deeply you can feel it in your bones? We’re here to give you that permission. Wreck a bunch of crockery or e-waste and come out feeling lighter than air.
Why should I go to The Break Room?
The Break Room is for those who want something different to do, live out a destructive fantasy or find catharsis in destroying something. It’s not simply about violence, but rather harnessing those destructive tendencies in a controlled and fun way. Stress is a very real health issue for most of us. Owning and relieving that stress on your terms is exactly what you need. Your time with us is well spent. You’ll come out of the room sweaty and ready to tackle the next challenge life throws at you.
Where did the idea come from?
Ed, the Founder, was working himself into an early grave in a corporate job when he realised enough was enough. He needed something to break his stress spiral. The idea was born from the primal urge to break something, but removing the guilt that happens as soon as you’ve thrown that mug. Everything kicked into gear and after months of hard work, testing and baseball bat painting lead to The Break Room coming into fruition.
What are your future plans for Break Room?
Currently we’re serving various forms of glassware and ceramics to smash, but are constantly looking at and testing new items to break into pieces. Everyone who enters the Break Room comes out with new ideas on what their ‘Ultimate Smashable’ would be. Some of my favourite suggestions have been, a champagne tower, an icecream cake, guitars and garden gnomes. Everyone has a different idea, it’s a real lesson in the human psyche, and we are loving workshopping new ideas. How feasible would it be to source? How would it smash? What would it sound like? What’s the danger element? It’s the best job in the world.
