I need to organise a stag do for sometime in November/December and am looking for ideas. Can anyone suggest any good cities for a weekend break? Ideally the weekend would include watching a sporting event. Any help would be amazing. Thanks!
Weekend break, that means you want something crazy activities. Why not you choose London! The nightlife is simply awesome, definitely you will get lots of fun once joined in nightlife program with your friends.
For something slightly off the stag-do radar (your bog-standard Prague/Dublin/Munich lost weekend) I’d suggest Madrid. Madrileños are hardcore night owls and there is a massive range of clubs open till dawn, plus hundreds of tapas bars to soak up the booze. It’s not exactly balmy in November/December but you will probably get lucky with clear blue skies. There’s also a football team you might have heard of (or two if you count Atlético Madrid) – imagine watching Gareth Bale tearing down the wing at the Bernabéu (or warming the bench for Ronaldo). Vamos!
Thank you both for your replies! Both the groom and myself live in London so was thinking of going further afield. Madrid is definitely tempting and a trip to the Bernabeu would be amazing! The dream would be El Clasico but imagine it’s impossible to get tickets (and the next one is in Barcelona)? Would welcome more suggestions of destinations or info from anyone who’s been to a game at the Bernabeu/Nou Camp!
All fabulous cities!
I’ve also heard that Zagreb is rather good – cheaper drinking prices than in London!
Good luck and have fun!
Thanks Clare! I’ve been to Berlin and absolutely loved it so might add that to the shortlist! Don’t know much about Zagreb so may have a look into that too.
