A comedy club is another fantastic, popular and different way to kick off the stag night out, and with popular venues we partner with across many of our stag party destinations both in the UK and Europe.

5. Beer bike

Navigating uncharted territory on a conference-style beer bike with a bunch of the lads and litres of beer is the exact type of bonkers activity stag parties were destined for. The beer bike is a great way to warm up for the stag night out and get acquainted with the city before you spend the rest of the night buried in some mighty fine bars and clubs. The best thing about this stag party activity is that you are getting in some exercise while still getting the drinks in. A win-win.

9. Stag arrest

The Stag Arrest is certainly one of the most thrilling ways that we know to kick off the stag party night out, particularly on stag parties in greater Europe. This stag party activity can be incredibly daunting, especially for the stag himself. He is kidnapped at random by two unknown assailants, bagged and brought to an unknown destination. Luckily for the stag, these happen to be sexy assailants and the unknown destination is a grade-A strip club where the stag will be subjected to the show of his life, all while the stag party look on and laugh.

10. Jello wrestling

Another totally alternative way to kick off the stag party night out, this activity doesn’t necessarily involve a lot of booze, but it most definitely involves bucket loads of jello.

Two of our lovely ladies will endure a jello wrestling match of epic proportions before you chuck the stag in to endure his fair share too. Then when the stag won’t have a look in where our skilled wrestling ladies are concerned, this evening activity ensures unmatched entertainment for the stag party.

As well as having an amazing time, another one of the main aims of the stag party night out is to embarrass the hell out of the stag. If the stag’s vocal stylings are anything like us here at The Stag’s Balls, then that task won’t be too difficult.

Simply stick a pint in one hand and a mic in the other and stick him up on a podium to serenade the locals with any chorus of choice. Just make sure to bring some ear plugs when opting for this hilarious stag party activity.
