Leeds Stag Do Ideas

Plenty of ideas for activities, themes and much more

At Stag and Hen Manchester we have been organising stag dos for years so we can advise you on the best places to stay, what to do and what theme will suit you best. Below are lots of fun and interesting ideas to get you started on planning the best stag do for your groom and mates.

Activity Ideas

Which activities will you and the lads choose?

Choosing which activities to do can be difficult as there are many people to please, most importantly the groom. Make sure to choose something the groom will love and that others are more than happy to go along with. Go for a fun daytime activity like quad biking then a relaxed evening meal or big night out in the city.

There is such a variety of stag activities you should have no problem finding something that everyone will be up for. Why not try go karting, laser tag or clay pigeon shooting? Then have that well deserved beer at night.


Popular stag Party Themes

A bit of advice...

Having a theme will get all the lads involved more with the stag do and can be a right laugh on the stag night. Here are a few ideas to get you thinking.

Classic – go with a classic theme that all the lads can get on board with. They will come up with some great costumes. Themes include: movies, superheroes, villains, army, sailors, gangsters and pub golf.

Personalised – this can be as simple as white t-shirts and pens or getting printed shirts with all your nicknames on paired with some embarrassing photos of the groom! This would be a fun surprise for the groom on the day and a good laugh.

Humorous – comedy outfits are very popular and can get a lot of laughs. Having a general comedy theme also allows the lads to get creative with their costumes. Outfits include: borat mankini, where’s wally, smurfs, banana costume and rocky horror. It’s always fun to see what the lads will come up with.

Unusual – want to do something a bit different…then go for one of these themes: morph suits, animal onesies, big baby costumes or storm troopers. This will be unexpected for the groom and something to surprise him with. It will also get you a lot of attention and head turns when out and about in the city!

Gentleman – for those of you wanting a more relaxed stag then go for the gentleman theme! Wear suits, bow ties and top hats and pair this with classic activities such as the races, beer/wine tasting and a luxury apartment stay.

City Guide


Places worth a visit to start the weekend

So you're either going to arrive on Friday afternoon if you're in Leeds for the whole weekend or Saturday lunch time if it's just for the 1 night, either way you need to know where to go for the initial introductory beer and to know where the football is going to be shown. Below a just a few of our favourite pubs ideal for starting any Legendary Stag do in Leeds.

The Elbow Room - Located on Call Lane with pool tables and live sport and obviously situated on one of the main drinking streets in Leeds what better place than this to start the weekend off.

Shooters - Gents is watching the match is a key part of your weekend then we can't think of anywhere better for you than Shooters. With 10 pool tables, 15 plasma screens, 4 big screens and waitress service why would you need to go anywhere else on a Saturday afternoon?

If you just want a high street bar then you can't go wrong getting down to Park Row and you won't be disappointed.

Keeping energy levels up

So the afternoon is going well, the beers are flowing and now only one thing is on the mind of the stags.....Where we going to eat? We don't want you losing men before you've even hit the casino!
Curry House - Number one choice of any stag do is a curry. Our personal favourite is Akbars, located on Greek Street you won't go wrong here gents.
China Town - Leeds China Town can be found on Lady Lane - A bit of a walk from the main bars and clubs, but taxis are easy to call upon if Chinese is your food of choice.If wasting time doesn't suit the group then there is always the fail safe burger or kebab widely available at many bars and takeaways around Leeds.

Silks - With a club also in Manchester Silks has a very good reputation for providing some high class entertainment. With friendly ladies, reasonable drink prices and 3 HD plasma screens showing football, boxing or UFC you be hard pressed to not love it here.

Wildcats - Leed premier strip club. Slightly more pricy than the others but well worth a visit if you and the boys have a bit if cash to splash after the casino. Whether you want to just stay downstairs and enjoy the floor show or treat the Stag to a private dance, the ladies at Wildcats will ensure you are well looked after.

Baby Platinum - If you have had a bit of a winning streak in the casino or just fancy something a little bit different from the other strip clubs in Leeds then head over to baby platinum.

Becketts Bank - Gents if you just want the old hangover fail safe then get back down to Park Row and the trusty Wetherspoons and let's face it you can't go wrong.
