Bottoms up, gents! Sheffield loves a party, and there’s no better way to kick off day two of your stag weekend than with a cheeky afternoon drinking session. Even better, we’ve found a way for you to get in as many sneaky shots as you like without getting a ticking off from the Mrs. You’ll be learning all about whisky, in a fun blind taste test!
Rock up to your private bar area, and relax with a whisky based cocktail while a genuine spirits expert sets up your taster shooters. Tell tall tales about the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to you while you were drinking whisky, make sure you thoroughly mock the stag for that time he threw up in his girlfriend’s mum’s handbag, and prepare to work your way through an epic six shots!
Your host will tell you all about the history and process of whisky making. Find out what makes a single malt, and why American whisky is different from the Gaelic stuff. Your first three shots are all about learning the differences. Your second shooters are the competition.
Can you spot the primo stuff in amongst the standard shots? Using what you just learned, will you be able to differentiate between single malt and a blend? Or will you just end up pleasantly drunk before tea? To book this classic Sheffield stag weekend activity, just talk to your party co-ordinator!
Sheffield’s legendary dog racing stadium is the ideal location for a Saturday night stag party special! After a hefty Friday in the bars and clubs of West Street and the city centre, changing up the pace and doing something really original is the way forward.
Place your bets on the Tote, dig in to your chicken in a basket meal, grab a free beer and wave your caps in the air! A night out at the dogs is a brilliant combo of old school eats, awesome atmosphere and genuine excitement.
You’ll get a table with a great view of Sheffield’s favourite track. While you’re eating and toasting the groom, you’ll be able to place Tote bets right there at your table. Afterwards, there a betting windows and self bet machines located all around the stadium. Get trackside for a real flavour of the races, and marvel at the hounds legging it past you at speeds of up to 40mph. Visit the course bars and toast your victory.
Will you bet for a straight win, a place, or a forecast (a double bet on the first two finishing dogs)? If you’re feeling really lucky, get the whole stag party to club together for a Jackpot bet, which aims to forecast the results of six races. You have to place your Jackpot before any of the races start, and if you win you’ll sweep a massive rollover pot from the whole stadium!
The secret to organising a stag weekend in Sheffield without losing your shizzle is to get someone else to do the boring bits - like organising two nights’ accommodation in the city centre. Sheffield is a big university town and holds loads of major events year round so you need to get rooms booked quickly. Let the professionals handle the accommodation side of the stag do and you’ll get centrally located beds within budget.
Speaking of which, we can get great deals on everything from swanky 4* hotels to cheap and clean hostels in the heart of Sheffield city centre.
Getting the train? Ask us about mid-range hotels with air conditioning and satellite TV in the Quayside Quarter, which is close to the train station. You’ve also got some great 3* hotels near the station with awesome views across the River Don, plus a couple of 2* hotels in the area that do basic but decent rooms for stag parties on a budget.
Driving? In that case you’ll need two nights’ accommodation in a hotel with on-site parking or one that’s got public parking close by. There are a couple of hotels in Sheffield’s trendy Devonshire Quarter that’ll fit the bill.
