          Why have a stag weekend in Manchester?


          Manchester has established itself as one of the most popular destinations for a stag do with its renowned reputation for football and electric sports scene, versatile event spaces and music lineups, as well as a myriad of activities and evening night spots. Combined with its northern charm and attractive prices it’s no wonder the city is a sought after choice for a stag party in Manchester.

          If the groom and the rest of the stags are footie fans then Manchester is an awesome choice for your bachelor party. With Manchester United and Manchester City – two of the biggest clubs in England and in world-football, it would be a missed opportunity not to watch one of the club’s elite matches. Whether that’s at Old Trafford or the Etihad Stadium, or soaking up the hometown atmosphere in one of Manchester’s pubs or sport bars. It’s not just football that Mancunians love though, there’s also top cricket, rugby and ice-hockey games available throughout the year.

          There are simply far too many wicked stag do ideas in Manchester for just one weekend away. Between all of the activities in all of the different districts, you’re going to have to make some tough decisions about what to do with the time that you have.

          When nighttime hits and you want to party the night away, we recommend heading over to Deansgate Locks. There are rows and rows of bars located on the canal and it’s DJ galore making it perfect for an end destination for your Manchester stag party. Alternatively, the Northern Quarter is another popular area full of packed pubs and quirky bars to crawl around, but also home to some of the tastiest restaurants you’ll find in the city.

          Stag Day One – You’ve arrived at your Manchester stag accommodation, now crack open a drink and toast the stag weekend ahead. Because of the afternoon check-in, you likely won’t have time for an activity today. Instead, unpack, get your bearings, and start with some games in your stag pad. Then, head out for a big meal at The Printworks – Manchester’s urban entertainment venue full of eateries and bars. You can then stay here for the duration, or venture outside and see what other drinking holes are in the Northern Quarter. Don’t party too hard on night one though, you’ve got a big weekend ahead.

          Stag Day Two – Rise and shine, time to shake off those day one hangovers. Start with a big fry up at your house or wander to a local café. Now the real fun begins – in the late morning or early afternoon it’s time for your big stag activity in Manchester. This should be something competitive and exhilarating such as indoor karting or a hilarious team activity like It’s a Knockout. You want to choose something that gets every single person involved, and also an idea where you can stich up the stag in a stupid outfit. Whatever you choose, give yourself enough time to get back home, relax and freshen up before it’s back out on the booze and boogie train.

          Head back into the city for another stodgy meal and perhaps a mini-activity with some drinking involved; Junkyard Golf or Flight Club is a great shout. Then we’d recommend going over to Deansgate Lock for the rest of the evening. The whole area is one large party with loads of canal bars, DJs, and a top finisher for a Manchester stag do.

          What’s the best way to travel around Manchester?


          Manchester is like a smaller and more northern version of London. Traveling around can seem overwhelming but we’re here to tell you it’s super easy. Manchester benefits from a tram network and buying one of their travelcards is a pretty good option for when you know you’ll be jumping on and off going from your activities, back to your house, and then out for nightlife. Speaking of getting back to your stag accommodation after a boozy night out, night buses run and Ubers are going to be your best bets for getting back home.

          Manchester also has a “rent a bike” system, so as long as you’re sober enough to ride, this can be a great, fun way to not just get around the city but also explore all the nooks and crannys. They’re located across the city and you’ll just need to download an app, sign up, you will pay per minute you ride and then you’re away – cheap and simple!
