Out on the Town
Plan a fun-filled day or night out that includes food, drinks, and socializing.
Ideas to consider include:
Get dressed up and look sharp for a classy steakhouse dinner. It’s an elegant option for the groom who enjoys the finer things in life.
Watch a Show
Let the groom’s interests be your guide when booking a show. Think musical concerts, comedy, dance performances, plays, Broadway productions, and more.
With a party bus rental, no one needs to worry about being a designated driver. All of the guests can kick back and enjoy a good time with drinks, laughs, and raucous fun.
Hit up all of the crew’s favorite local watering holes, or head downtown to explore the nightlife with a pub crawl. It’s a casual way to enjoy a variety of locations and a variety of cold drinks!
Meal & Cigars or Shisha
Enjoy a meal out at a restaurant followed up with a stop in a cigar bar. Another option is to stop into a shisha bar.
The classic among all ideas for stag party activities is the club night. Strip clubs are usually the first place that spring to mind when talking about bachelor party activities, but for less debauchery, a dance club is a nice alternative.
Get ready to gamble by heading out to a casino. Don’t let the groom spend his own money. Have everyone toss in some cash so he can play the slots, roulette, or table games he enjoys.
Perfect for the groom who appreciates a delicious craft brew and classic pub food! Gather the group at a craft brewery for a few hours of good company and cold beers.
Wine lovers will enjoy an afternoon or evening of wine tasting at a vineyard. Spend time at just one spot, or have a designated driver take the group on a tasting tour.
Beer, liquor, and classic arcade games make for a nostalgic night of fun. Arcade bars are ideal for guys who love a casual atmosphere and games like Donkey Kong, Pac Man, and pinball.
Groom Challenges & Scavenger Hunt
Combine bachelor party activities with totally silly tasks, or perhaps some awesome pranks?
Turn a night out on the town into a hilarious and exciting series of challenges for the groom and the guys to tackle. Set up a series of simple or complicated challenges that the groom can take on over the course of the evening. Successful completion can result in a reward, like another round of shots.
Setting up a scavenger hunt is a bit more involved, but will make for an interesting evening. Solving one clue will lead the groom to the next. The conclusion can be something exciting or silly. A bachelor party scavenger hunt adds another layer of fun to an already amazing evening.
Throw a competitive party centered about sports or a sporting event. Purchase tickets to watch a game played by a professional team. Or have the group get physical by splitting up into teams to play each other.
If the groom is a player of a particular sport, consider setting up a match or hosting a game for your group by renting out a local venue.
Laid Back and Low-Key
Bachelor party activities don’t have to be difficult to plan and enjoy. For grooms who are more comfortable sticking close to home and prefer low-key activities, pick something laid back. All you need are food, drinks, and fun & games at someone’s house.
These ideas are easy on the budget and quick to plan:
Play for big money or just for bragging rights! A poker night is an easy, affordable way to bring guys of all ages together. Add in drinks, snacks, and cigars and you’re good to go.
Set up the game consoles in someone’s home, or head out to an entertainment venue geared towards adults. Video games played at someone’s place makes for a relaxing evening in. Or venture out to an arcade for adults.
Bust out the best board games for groups, like Risk and Monopoly. A night of fun and friendly competition could be the best way to show the groom a good time.
Summer weddings mean you can make a splash with a bachelor pool party. Hold it at someone’s house, or get fancy and rent a place with a pool.
Keep it casual with a tasty backyard barbecue. Get the grill smoking and set up tables and chairs on a deck, patio, or out in the yard. Nothing beats a BBQ party with grilled meats, cold beer, and fun outdoor games like horseshoes and corn hole.
Ask all of the guests to get involved in making the bachelor party a success with a potluck dinner. Everyone can bring a favorite food dish to share. It’s an affordable alternative to dining out.
Whisk the groom out of town for a quick but amazing weekend getaway. Plan a road trip that won’t take everyone too far from home. Head to the mountains, the beach, or even to Las Vegas for an unforgettable weekend away. Book a chalet, cottage, cabin, or a rental home that can accommodate the size of your group.
Outdoor focused bachelor party activities can be combined with a weekend getaway for an epic adventure.
Take the groom and guests outside to explore and enjoy nature with one of these ideas focused on the great outdoors:
Pack up the fishing rods and grab the tackle boxes for a fun fishing trip. Head to a local lake, nearby creek or river, or even charter a fishing boat for a private trip.
Spend a night or two under the stars with a casual camping trip. Rough it out in the woods, or rent a camper for a more comfortable, upscale experience.
From surfing to Frisbee to just relaxing in the sun, a beach day is a perfect way to get the groom to unwind.
If the groom is a hunter, a hunting trip with the guys could be the best of all bachelor party activities. It’s a perfect way to get outdoors and enjoy male bonding time.
