English term or phrase:break-out room
This refers to the breakout room in a conference centre
I realize this is an old question, but a breakout room is a smaller room where the people who attend a conference can go in small groups to listen to a speaker about a specific topic. So there's the main conference, and several breakout rooms with subtopics of the conference.

salón de descanso
Explanation: The break-out room is where you take a break from a conference, usually 5 or 10 minutes, to get something to drink or eat, and then continue the conference.
Explanation: Por definición, es una sala en la que se habla de tópicos a los que solo una porción de los asistentes interesan. Por ejemplo, cuando voy a conferencias de asociaciones para traductores, hay charlas para el público en general y hay charlas en diferentes salas sobre temas específicos, éstas se llevan a cabo en breakout rooms (because you break out from the main group).
