No dismal grey cubicles here.
The work/play balance might not look like what most of us are used to, but the bosses at these offices insist their playful surroundings spur productivity.
At Southampton UK's Peer 1, where staff unwind with yoga and use giant slides to get from floor to floor, Dominic Monkhouse insists it's no gimmick.
"It's about creating an office which sets a very high expectation for our staff...it's about creating a workplace [that tells] staff we care."
It cost roughly $625,000 to convert the space from a bar (the kind of place where one escapes from work) into a place that's nearly as fun, but a lot more productive.
In fact, it's kept many of the features of a good bar.
Staff members tell BBC News they'll kick back and shoot pool or throw darts to take a break.
Peer 1's Sarah O'Callaghan says there are no set times for lunch or play and workers can even grab a pint while on the job, go for a stretch or play Foosball.
One of the first places to design a workspace that had more in common with a Chuck E. Cheese than a cubicle farm was Pixar headquarters in Emeryville, California.
Its office has since inspired a lot of high-tech firms, including those like Peer 1, to turn their workspace into a place where people can play.
Here are some other fun workplaces where people are encouraged to play as much as they work.
Toronto's Google Offices
Google's recently opened digs features staff canteens like this one, serving up freebie breakfasts and lunches with seasonal ingredients. It's decorated with discarded bikes.
There's also a rooftop mini-putt, dotted with Toronto landmarks like the Prince's Gate, and plenty of vintage video games to while away the hours on the company dime.
