Where to hold stag nights in London

Stag nights or bachelor parties, as they are most commonly known in the UK, are the grooms' last chance to say goodbye to their single life and do things their wife-to-be probably would not approve of - drinking, gambling and dodgy strip clubs! For the best man organising the party, London's vibrant SoHo makes a great spot for a stag night thanks to its legions of lively bars and all night, good-time atmosphere.

First steps

Plan a suitable date for the stag night Obviously, you have to make sure that you choose a date when the groom is available. However, choosing a weekend night will mean that everyone can let loose without worrying about work the next day - it is when SoHo is at its liveliest. Try and set aside a whole day or an entire weekend if everyone can make it. Decide what the groom would most want to do on the stag night. Remember, it is traditional not to tell him what is going on. Make sure that everyone knows how to get there by sending out maps and directions via email before the party. SoHo is easily reachable on the London Underground network. The area is a short walk from Oxford Circus, Tottenham Court Road and Leicester Square tube stations.

Maximise your enjoyment

Arrange a meeting place for the beginning of the bachelor party. SoHo is mostly made up of bars, restaurants and stripper venues. Choose which you think is most suitable. You could start at a more traditional pub, move on to a more buzzing bar and finish the night at one of Soho's late night clubs. Make the most of SoHo's infamous sex scene by treating the groom to a private dance in one of the many lap dancing clubs. Steer clear of touts walking the streets asking if you want to see a show. Even though they might promise a low entry fee, they will make up for it by selling you drinks at extortionate prices and may make you pay a joining fee. Give some thought to pranks or themes that you might want for the stag night. Getting group t-shirts printed and dressing up in silly outfits are favourite ideas. Think of the funniest, most ridiculous thing that you can do to the groom at the end of the night. Then, take photos of it as evidence. It is his stag night after all - last night of freedom!

Remember, there are a number of options available online that can plan your entire stag party and weekend packages ideas. If you buy a party package, they will cover the stag do destinations and stag activities for you!
