Why choose Glasgow as a Stag Party destination?
What do you get when you cross Glasgow with a good time? An epic stag weekend that’ll leave the stag with unforgettable memories for years to come. While Edinburgh may be the Scottish capital of culture and historic artefacts, Glasgow is the capital of late nights and hen and stag parties. Glasgow has an unyielding party spirit and some of the most welcoming and down to earth locals that you will ever encounter. As the third-largest city in the UK, Glasgow pulls off a great balancing act, boasting the cosmopolitan air that can only be expected from larger cities, and while still maintaining the unspoilt character and charm of a smaller place.
Dive into your Glasgow stag do with an absolute tonne of extreme Glaswegian stag party activities like paintball, rage buggies, karting, dodgeball, five aside, bubble football and high ropes. You can also always get out and about to explore Glasgow’s skyline and sights like The Mitchell Library, Royal Exchange Square and ‘Squinty Bridge’, which will be looking exceptionally squinty after the outrageous amount of beer consumed on the Glasgow stag party.
Another unique activity for stag parties to partake in while in Glasgow is a stadium tour. Lads can take a trip to either the Celtic or Ibrox stadium and experience first-hand the traditional football rivalry. The old firm is an experience that football fanatics won’t want to miss on a Glasgow stag party, and if your Glasgow stag party are really lucky, they might even get a chance to see the mighty teams go head to head.
While Celtic and Rangers have been famously known to put on quite the show over the years, it’s doubtful this will be the only show that your stag party will be experiencing in Glasgow. It is, in fact, one of the best spots in the UK for live music shows, with Radio 1 acclaimed ‘best live music venue’ ‘King Tuts Wah Wah Hut’ has premiered world-famous performances from artists like Oasis, Radio Head, Killers, Pulp and Snow Patrol, while subfloor ‘The Arches’ promises the innate party vibe that you can only expect from a renovated archway beneath a railway station. Quirky venues like Mono multitask as microbreweries, vegan cafes and gig havens. Other larger venues like O2 ABC and Arena are also known to host legendary sell-out shows, so make sure to keep your eyes on the lineup when preparing for the Glasgow stag party. We also highly recommend a trip to one of Glasgow’s amazing comedy or gentlemen’s clubs at some stage during the Glasgow stag party.
When Glasgow is renowned for its mixture of creativity, innovative rejuvenation and raw wit, it’s a given that this Scottish hub has quite the combination of watering holes and late-night locales. While Glasgow’s renaissance has given way to hen-friendly, cosmopolitan cocktail bars and spirits specialists, that doesn’t mean that the Scottish clubbing capital has lost its edge. It still has a raw, unapologetic nightlife, with clubs packed to the rafters on a bad night. Your stag party can take their pick from atmospheric rock cafés, or traditional pubs brandishing both old and new craft beers, while underground nightclubs and student populated venues are always waiting to welcome your Glasgow stag party and show them a real warm Scottish welcome.
