Top tips for planning a sophisticated stag weekend in Manchester

Updated on May 23, 2016

The typical drunken, lairy stag weekend complete with copious pints of beer, loud music and risque entertainment may still be fine for some, but let’s face it, it’s not really your scene. More importantly, as Best Man, you know full well that the traditional stag staples are the last thing your Groom-to-Be would want for their big pre-wedding celebration.

Rather, you have in mind something with a little more class and sophistication, something that ensures you and the boys can live life in the lap of luxury for a few days whilst giving the Man of the Moment a weekend he’ll never forget.

Thankfully, Manchester City Centre is awash with venues and services guaranteed to help you do just that. Heading north for the ultimate bachelor bash but don’t quite know where to start? Here’s just a few of our tips for planning a sophisticated stag weekend in Manchester.

Book a VIP area at an Exclusive Manchester Club

Not for your groom the over-crowded, beer-soaked dancefloors and cheap shots from the bar. You’re going all out to make this one extra special, so for those late-night drinks, consider reserving your spot at one of the city’s exclusive high class bars, such as Manchester235 cocktail bar or LIV bar and restaurant on Deansgate.

Splash out on travelling around the city

The same old stretched limo thing has been done to death by pre-wedding parties, so to make your weekend one that really stands out as in a class of its own, why not chip in with the rest of the stag party and spring for the ultimate in luxury, such as a chauffeur driven Mercedes Benz or the uber-stylish Range Rover Vogue SUV.

Head for a night at the Casino

Really want to live the high life during your weekend in Manchester? Why not hedge your bets with a night at the casino. The aforementioned Manchester235 is a complete entertainment complex with its own in-house casino, whilst Genting Club on Portland Street and Grosvenor Casino on Bury New Road are all perfect for a night of Poker, Blackjack, and Roulette.

Don’t forget the luxury accommodation

After travelling around in top-of-the-range luxury cars, wining and dining in first class VIP areas and living it up at the Roulette Wheel, coming home of an evening to your typical run-of-the-mill hotel is sure to put a dampener on things.

Instead, why not opt for a luxury apartment such as those offered by The Works Apartment Hotel close to Manchester Piccadilly station? Based right in the city centre a stone’s throw away from top bars, restaurants and entertainment venues, booking here -especially with per-night rates costing less than most Manchester hotels- is the perfect way to wrap up the kind of high class, sophisticated stag weekend you, your groom, and the entire stag party, will remember for a long time to come.
