Why Celebrate in Nottingham?

Nottingham is a city that has it all – there’s no wonder why it’s in the UK’s top cities to visit for a stag weekend!

It is a city with an immense list of things to see and do whilst learning about some amazing history along the way.

Of course the nightlife is the main aspect of a stag weekend but even during the day time there is loads to do as you explore this fascinating city like Robin Hood and his merry men.

Guide to Nottingham Nightlife

The Nottingham Nightlife

Nottingham certainly knows how to throw an epic night and that’s exactly what you want to hear when deciding to choose one of our stag weekends in Nottingham. Whatever your scene is from dance to indie or rock to dubstep you’ll for sure have no problem finding a great place to go in the evenings seeing as this city is full of amazing bars, clubs, pubs and music venues to explore. Whether you want a quiet pint with the lads to start or an evening full of partying, Nottingham is the place to be. Especially since it was the first place in the country that took advantage of the 24-hour licencing laws, it would be rude not to raise a glass to that!

Why not start your evening off with a trip to England’s oldest pub (allegedly), Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem? It’s a loved pub by all visitors and locals of all ages since 1189 due to the fact that it’s carved into the stone at the foot of Castle Rock and because of the unbeatable ales and ghost stories! If that doesn’t sound like your vibe, why not try out some of Nottingham’s secret bars and pubs? Places like The Hockley Arts Club and the Boilermaker are great if you want to experience something new, our advice to find them is to keep your eyes peeled. Blink and you might miss them or mistake them for an old boiler shop.

And of course a visit to a nightclub is a must on your stag weekend so why not head to NG1? Prominently located in the city centre, this club boasts about its capacity of around 1000 which makes it one of the largest nightclubs in Nottingham. It’s a great place to head if you want a night on the dancefloor with 4 bars, 3 sound systems and 2 floors full of amazing atmosphere. Or how about taking a trip to Stealth, this club has created a well-deserved reputation as the midlands best club so it would be rude not to see what it’s all about. This venue welcomes a huge variety of acts from mainstream artists to electronic and dubstep and is always moving ahead of the times when it comes to music. A great place to create some memories with the lads.
