Planning a stag do? Maybe you are the groom or the best man, choosing the right location for a stag do can make or break the weekend. Get it wrong and the blame is on you…no pressure! We have put together the best locations and activities to guarantee you an unforgettable weekend without mentioning strip clubs or dancing women (we are pretty sure you will find those on your own!) Whether you are football fans or just want to drink all the beer you can we’ve got it all covered.
Barcelona is great if you want sun, alcohol and football all in one holiday. Barcelona as you will know is great for football and if you are lucky you might rub shoulders with the players at the local Go Kart track (one of the best in Europe) where they are often seen. Ever tried bubble football? Fun activities could include bubble football or quad biking.
For the best stag bars, we recommend Bollocks, this place has tables for arm wrestling so you can settle things once and for all. Chupitos has over 500 different shots to choose from and Flaherty’s is a great sports bar that serves an excellent pint. Don’t forget to look into Barcelona’s infamous festivals; you might be able to catch some good acts without splashing out on a Glastonbury ticket as well!
Prague is definitely the holy grail of all stag do locations, if you don’t have an epic weekend in Prague then you need to check your pulse. During the day go to Trabant Rally where you can hire out possibly the worst cars of all time in vibrant colours to drive around the city, they will definitely make you turn heads and give you a great adventure. The Great Escape is a world war 2 themed game where you are trapped in a room and you must solve the puzzles to escape within 60 minutes and if you don’t…we just presume they let you out anyway but it can make a fun twist to your stag do.
For the best bars, go to Double Trouble, this is where all of the staff dance on the tables and bar whilst the DJ gets the party started, this is a great place to start your night. U Fleku is another well-known pub that is older then the entire nation of America!
This is the party hub of the north and home to one of Europe’s best club scenes if you are looking to party hard within the UK. During the day have fun with Rage Buggies where you can have as much fun as you want without flashing blue lights in the rear view mirror.
Brew Dog is one of Newcastle’s best bars with 33 taps to choose from so you can the guys will be spoilt for choice. Tiger Hornsby is a bar for sophisticated drinks where they set light to cocktails and use blowtorches, this shows how manly the cocktails are! Newcastle is guaranteed to give you everything you want in a stag do so as Ant and Dec would say “lets get ready to rumble…..”
Another ultimate stag do location, Amsterdam has everything to offer that you need for a great weekend. For ultimate laughs and sigh seeing, you can’t beat the genius that is the beer bike. Rent one of those beauties to take you all over the city in a unique way.
For the best bars, we recommend Vesper Bar, this is a seriously cool place that serves amazing cocktails. These aren’t girly cocktails but 007 style sophisticated man drinks. HPS (hiding in Plain Sight) we hear is another cool quirky bar if you fancy something a bit different. We all know Amsterdam is famed for it’s red light district but if that’s not your scene then Dam Square is great for bars and restaurant as well as Amsterdam’s Chinatown which is great to fill up on Chinese food
Dublin is the city for sport mad stags. Take part in the Gaelic Games where you can partake in Hurling, Gaelic Football and Irish Handball. This is basically an opportunity for you to beat up the groom but in a fun way with helmets and big sticks. Irish pubs are legendary all over the world so you couldn’t have picked a better place for a drinking weekend.
Sinotts is one of the very best in a city full of fine drinking establishments and is worth a pint or two. We have heard that 37 Dawson Street is a great place for a proper Irish night out too. If you can get there for St Patrick’s Day then you will be at the epicenter of the world’s largest pub crawl and if you can get to Longitude festival in July then you will whiteness Ireland’s largest music festival.
If you are looking to spend more money and fancy somewhere with a hint of TOWIE glamour then this is the place for you. The best way to appreciate Marbs is on the ocean waves, join a party boat for sun, sea and sangria! Linekers is one of the most famous party destinations in Spain and no Marbella stag do is complete without stopping by.
News café isn’t your average café, find this bar on a rooftop by the harbourside where everyone will be sipping champagne and dancing to top tunes. If you go in Marbella then don’t miss the Marbella Festival, a weekend full of thousands of people, live music, Dj’s and more. The best place for a fiesta!
Budapest has some of the best stag activities in Europe. Target shooting is just one of the activities that is bound to get the weekend off to a good start. What better way to have fun then shooting stuff.
Budapest has an eray of pop up bars that come and go which are definitely worth a visit. Szimpla Kert is a bar with an odd interior design but an amazing atmosphere, which makes it a top night out. If travelling there in June don’t miss the Buda Castle Beer Festival where you can sample the local flavours.
If you aren’t looking to go out of the country then good old Manchester (our home) is a guarantee for a great weekend. Maybe catch a football match in one of the best cities for football in the country. You may not know Manchester has an indoor skydiving facility, which is a massive hit with stag dos if you can’t afford the real thing.
For great bars The Liar’s Club is a must, this is part tiki bar, part cocktail lounge, part British boozer, all bound to start off a great night. The Black Dog Ball Room is also another hit with stags as it is a New York inspired speakeasy and pool hall that any stag group will love.
Have a great stag do, can't wait for our invite!
