Birmingham Stag Do Ideas
Planning activities, choosing a theme and much more
For plenty of ideas on what to do, where to stay and what to dress up as look no further. Here at Stag and Hen Birmingham we have lots of experience in organising stag dos and have seen dozens of great ideas over the years. From staying in a luxury apartment to wild costumes take a look for some advice on how to plan the best stag do for the groom.
Activities to suit the whole group
Choosing the best activities to do on a stag do can be difficult as some guests may not want to or be capable of doing certain activities. A good idea may be to choose a couple of day and night activities, present them to the group and put it to a vote. Then if anyone has any problems they can mention them. Go for an exciting daytime activity such as assault course and then a relaxed evening meal or night out in the city.
Popular Stag Do activities
As there are so many activities available we have chosen some of the most popular for you to have a look at. Why not try snowboarding, power biking or archery? Then relax with a few beers at night before the big night out.

A bit of advice...
Getting all the lads to dress up on a stag do leads to a lot of laughs and a great time for the groom. It gets everyone involved and seeing what each lad has come up with on the night can be hilarious. Here are a few ideas for you all.
Traditional – go with a classic theme that is broad so all the lads can choose different costumes. Themes include: superheroes & villains, cavemen, movies, army and boy scouts. Why not try out an assault course to go with the army theme?
Comedy – comedy themes can be a lot of fun and it is exciting to see what each person turns up as. You will certainly turn heads with some of these costumes which include: rocky horror, 118 men, school girls, nuns and the well-known borat mankini!
Out there – want to do something a bit crazy? If the groom is up for some wild costumes, then this theme is for you. Think inflatable fruit, ballerinas, grumpy old men and storm troopers. This will let the lads get creative with their costumes.
Gentleman – want an upper class stag do? Why not all go as gentleman by wearing suits, bow ties, pocket watches and top hats. Maybe a fake moustache too! Add to this theme by staying in a luxury apartment and opting for a poker afternoon.
Classic tees – this is a popular option which simply involves getting t-shirts printed with all your nicknames, some funny quotes and some embarrassing photos of the groom. It is also a nice keepsake for the groom to remember his last night of freedom with the lads!

Guest Lists for Clubs
Birmingham has some of the best clubs in the UK and is a must visit for any Stag do. Now there is nothing worse than standing in a queue outside the clubs for what seems like a duration, especially if you've just spent a fortune getting bladdered to start to sober up. As part of every booking we arrange for free for your group to go on one venue's guestlist for one night of your stay ensuring no queuing is required. Restrictions apply for larger groups but we can discuss that at time of booking your Birmingham Stag Weekend.
Whether you want a proper meal before you go out, or your grabbing a kebab is your food of choice for the weekend there are a few options in Birmingham City Centre.
The Mailbox - A slightly more upmarket destination where fancy dress is not the most welcome attire of choice and you're more likely to find a slightly older crowd. If a curry is your food of choice then try Red Peppers where you will not be disappointed. The Mailbox is also a good place to start your night out with a few real ales at Penny Blacks or some of the other bars before making the 5 minute walk to Broad Street to finish the party as the stag rule book states - In a state.
China Town - Located just 5 minutes walk from New Street Station, Birmingham's China town is a vibrant quarter of the city and home to some of the more alternative bars and clubs you might want to visit on your Birmingham Stag Do. Whether you fancy a bit of Karaoke after your Chinese or you want to head down to the Arcadian where you will find Arca pounding out House music or Poppy Red for your funky beats, China Town has it all.
Kebabs - Broad Street that really is all we need to say I am sure you can figure out the rest!
