Barcelona really is the city that never sleeps. Whether you’re after a jam-packed itinerary of blood-pumping day time activities, some late-night party antics, or maybe a wicked combination of the two - Barcelona is where you need to head. We send hundreds of stag and hen groups to the Catalan capital every year, and it’s no surprise why when you see our wealth of activities on offer. We have almost a hundred day and night activities to choose from, including entry into some of Barcelona’s most renowned nightclubs, so there’s enough to keep you and the lads entertained throughout every second of your wild weekend. Expect your days to be filled with sun drenched boat parties, water parks and soaking up that chilled-out Spanish charm, and your nights to be out of this world you’ll. You’ll have the hipster vibes of the Gothic Quarter, the low-key, multicultural ambiance of Gracia and the 24-hour haze of the seafront Passeig Maritim to name but a few nightlife spots you’re going to hit.
On the whole, the stags we send to Barcelona tend to want action-packed, fast-paced day time activities and then hit the ground running when it comes to the night time shenanigans. First things first, you need to make sure that the lads land in style and start the weekend as they mean to go on – which is why we find a lot of stags opting for the party bus airport transport, to be taken from the airport to their central accommodation.
Among our most popular activities by a mile are the guided bar crawls. We offer general guided bar crawls around central Barcelona, as well as bar crawls around specific areas like the quirky, hipster Gothic Quarter and the sea-front Port Olympic.
We find that stags who are unfamiliar with the city prefer to go on these sorts of bar crawls, rather than plotting their own way through the melee of bars, pubs and clubs that Barcelona has to offer. Of course, if stags have their hearts set on a particular club, we can arrange guestlist and queue jump for you, no problem. Among our top recommended bars are Shoko, Razzmatazz, Opium, Pacha, Ice Bar and Catwalk, all of which we can sort your VIP nightclub experience in. You could even immerse yourselves in the local culture and experience a stag fiesta, involving a delicious, traditionally Spanish three course meal and unlimited Sangria, a mini bar crawl on your way to a nightclub and a hot striptease along the way – things are about to get Messi.
The Ice Bar is also particularly popular with stags visiting Barcelona, where welcome ice cocktails, as well as eskimo gloves and jackets are also included.
As far as classic Barcelona activities go, once you’ve ticked all of the iconic landmarks off your list – Parc Guell, La Sagrada Familia and Arc de Triomf, we’re looking at you – it’s time to take in a bit of culture you can all relate to, the footie. The Nou Camp Stadium and Museum Tour is popular with the stag groups we send to Barcelona, where you can get a good look around the famous, 100,000 capacity football stadium, or why not go one better and get yourself tickets to a Barcelona game? Once you’ve seen your footballing heroes strut their stuff on the pitch, it’s time to show your own skills off – how? By strapping yourselves into inflated zorbs and playing bubble football, of course. Or you could even challenge your mates to a bit of healthy competition, with an indoor karting race around a purpose built track. You can always prep for a huge night out in Barcelona with a beer bike ride, where you’ll have to pedal around powered by only your leg power, and 1.5 litres of beer on Sangria each.
