Stag and Hen Manchester is based in Manchester so we’re able to pass on the kind of knowledge you only get when you’re local. The kind of knowledge you get when you live and breathe the best bars, restaurants and things to do. Not the kind of knowledge you get from agents who’ve visited the city a few times.
So read on for the best Manchester stag party ideas there are, from our painstaking research. (OK, so maybe that’s a lie!)
Lots of our stag groups come to Manchester for the very reason that its music scene is the stuff of legends. Oasis, The Hacienda, The Happy Monday, The Courteneers, The Stone Roses…need we go on?!
Whilst the days of partying like Bez in the Hacienda may be over, Manchester’s nightlife scene is still one of the best in the country.
As with any big city, where you’ll want to head on your stag night in Manchester depends on what you’re after.
If you like to discover the best independent bars and up-and-coming music then The Northern Quarter area is a must. However, as with any cool bars, large groups of lads aren’t always welcome, so you my need to get a little creative to beat the bouncers!
If stylish bars where you need to dress suave are more your thing, then Deansgate and Spinningfields are where to head.
If you prefer to just let your hair down, party hard and maybe even indulge in some fancy dress then head to Deansgate Locks and The Printworks, where large groups of stags are welcome.

Not only is Manchester an immensely popular stag and hen destination, its famous football clubs, theatre and arenas attracting top names make booking accommodation a bit of a fight to the death at times.
So the earlier you book the better chance you have of securing accommodation, as well as making sure you get the best possible prices and accommodation in the heart of the city centre (because nobody likes waiting for taxis!).
We generally advise that stag and hen parties book their packages 3 to 6 months out, depending on the weekend they have in mind. Activities can generally be added a little later if you can’t make up your mind, though usually it’s best to book no later than 3 months out to ensure you get availability and the best times.
