Fulham's

On the borders of the famous Chelsea district, you’ll stumble across Fulham.

This vibrant West London area has a serious rep for drinking – it’s a proper palace for stag weekends. The notorious Fulham Road plays host to boozers, cocktail bars, buzzing venues – and even a pub dedicated to the world-famous Oktoberfest festival. Get ready to step into the renowned West London party district.

Let's get started.

This Victorian pub is a cornerstone (literally) of Fulham.

It blends history with a real modern twist – with old-school wallpaper, original features, and huge screens for every sport imaginable. But, even though they serve a wide selection of ales, lagers and craft beers, it’s not just about the drinking – the door is open to everyone in the eclectic district of Fulham. There’s a welcoming living room at the front of the boozer for the diners in the crowd. But, we haven’t even mentioned the best bit – the skylit ‘Great Hall’ for quizzes, live music and massive footy games, alongside an outdoor drinking spot on the notorious Fulham Road. This isn’t just a pub, this is a way of life.

This is the closest thing to Oktoberfest in the madcap capital.

The huge, wooden beer hall draws in Bavarian lovers in their droves – serving over 60 different German beverages and a whole load of German schnapps thrown in for good measure. They are even supported by one of the biggest breweries in Munich, Paulaner, and import everything – from their beer, all the way to the pork knuckles and bratwurst – for a true taste of the original festival. And, that’s not forgetting the lederhosen clad entertainment – and dressing up is actively encouraged. The classic German ‘Oompah Band’ also regularly takes to the stage on a weekend, and the communal hall is absolutely buzzing when they do – you’ll be leg slapping with the best of them.

This place often sees queues lining the entire street, along with A-list stars.

The Elk Bar is a vibrant DJ venue, set in the heart of Fulham – it’s famous around these parts. There are serious parties every Thursday, Friday and Saturday with well-known faces – alongside Mojito parties, and a huge range of happy hour offers (the Tacos and Tequila option has our name all over it). Elk is also renowned for its tasty grub – and there’s even an outdoor barbecue serving huge burgers, platters and so much more. Get yourself over Putney Bridge and enjoy this fantastic Fulham gem.

The Cock Tavern is a home from home in The Big Smoke.

Thought of as ‘Fulham’s most-loved pub’ – this is where you’ll experience the real West London life. It’s got bags of character – there’s wood panelling on the walls, giant fireplaces and a seriously colourful, secret garden-like outdoor terrace. They’re always experimenting with their hugely popular food menu, and there’s always some new kid on the block with the drinks – including a load of different beers. And, this is also home to some of the best pub quizzes this side of the river – so what are you waiting for?

477 Fulham Road, London, SW6 1HL

This pub is world-famous in the party capital.

Situated directly opposite Stamford Bridge, this is where Chelsea Football Club was founded in 1905. Back then, it was known as The Rising Sun, but the deal for the club was signed in a room above the pub – and the boozer is firmly imprinted on the hearts of Fulham dwellers for life. Ideal for the footy nut Groom-to-Be. The Butcher’s Hook is a real trendy venue in the heart of West London – it’s all cool wood interior, serving proper grub along with a whole load of ales and craft beers. It’s vibrant, but doesn’t try to be anything it’s not – and on match days, this place is bouncing. Here’s to a footy themed stag do.
