Two nights of guaranteed good times, and getting the chance to have a hilarious zorb kick about? Aren’t you a great best man.
We know what you’re all thinking. If there’s one thing that’s wrong with the modern game of football, full of over-paid under-educated idiots it’s that they aren’t playing the beautiful game from inside of a mini-zorb. We totally agree.
That’s why you and the lads will be getting to play in this improved version of football – bubble football! Each member of your team and the opposition will be strapped inside of mini-zorbs which engulf your upper half. If you’ve never seen a zorb before, check out the video to the side, or picture a huge inflatable bubble – with you stuck inside it!
As you might expect, the addition of huge inflatable bubbles slightly affects the way that you play football. Without the use of your arms, your balance has a way of disappearing and you’ll find yourself falling over with an alarming regularity. The large amount of grown men falling over is the only real similarity here to the Premier League, because the tackling is much, much more vicious. You’ll quickly realise that as well as falling over quite a lot in these bubbles, the bubble itself means that you’re sheltered from injury. And you’ll just as quickly realise that this means you can run into your team-mates, opposition, and generally anyone that gets nearby to you at full pelt and send them flying. This new found discovery generally means that your game of football takes just as much from sumo wrestling as it does from footie.
Running into one another is fantastic fun, just remember that this is a stag do – so targeting the groom whenever you get the chance is an absolutely essential part of things.
This kickabout with a difference doesn’t just include a game. As well as getting to play one of the most popular activities around you’ll also get to play in games like Crossbar Challenge, Dizzy Penalties, Zorb Bulldog (yes, that game you got banned from at school, except this time it’s more violent) and Last Man Standing. All of this is run by one of the brilliant expert hosts.
Overall it’s a totally unique experience that’ll have you out of breath and in stitches! And strictly speaking, we guess this counts as exercise? So that means that you can congratulate yourselves for your hard work with a couple extra pints? It’s only fair!
Hitting the club is pretty much the expected thing to do on a night out with your fellow stag revellers. However, pounding the pavements to find the best place to go and having to queue for aeons at the door is never much fun. So to make it easier for you, we’ve sorted you and your group out with prepaid club entry into Tiger Tiger. Inside you’ll find an atmosphere that’s relaxed during the day and pumping at night. There are regular DJ nights to get the crowd in the mood and the club boasts six rooms, each with a different theme from R&B to pop, funky house, dance and retro. So if you’re looking forward to a night of non-stop dancing and then this is the place to be.
Stag nights out shouldn't involve waiting in line like the rest of the crowd. In fact, you and your mates should be standing out from the crowd, which is why we've arranged this handy Saturday night guest pass to get you and your friends in ASAP. Once inside, the epic Piccadilly Institute brings you six concept rooms with different themes of music, and a total of eight different bars, so there’s no chance you’ll be left bored or thirsty here! Wild Saturday nights are definitely on the agenda, as this place is famous for its super-quirky decor, crazy cocktails and awesome resident DJs. It’s like a wonderland of parties that you don’t want to miss out on, so make sure you get the boys in before 11pm to make the most of your exclusive entry deal.
Stay right in the heart of the action at the Thistle City Barbican. This swish hotel in London City is at the gateway to the trendy East End and vibrant bar and club life of Hoxton Square. As a guest, enjoy free access to their Otium Health & Leisure Club, which includes a swimming pool, gym, sun bed, steam room, sauna and hot tub. Old Street underground station is a ten-minute walk away and if you fancy heading West, Leicester Square is only 30-mins by Tube.
With a couple of bars onsite – not to mention room service – there’s no excuse not to get a round in before and after your stag activities. With spacious rooms and flat screen TVs to boot, the hotel makes for the perfect place to either kick back with the guys, or get ready to go out and enjoy this area’s bounty of nightlife. After sweating it out in the sauna the next morning, you’ll welcome the breakfast menu at the 120 Central Brasserie downstairs. For all the amenities and an enviable location for culture and partying, the Barbican Thistle really ticks all the boxes.
Please note that no flights are included in any of our packages or itineraries, this is something your group will need to arrange directly. If you book an overseas package with us, that requires flights and has airport transfers on the itinerary, you can enter your flight details at a later date in our online Party Hub, so we can arrange your transfers.
I would recommend the Stag Company to anyone who wants to plan a hassle free weekend for a stag do. They will find activities for wherever you want to go and what you price range is. The website is very simple to use and allows all participants to pay their own share in their own time, so no chasing money by the best man! Overall, I had a fantastic weekend planned by them and the process from start to finish was a breeze.
