The capital of Poland is overflowing with hilarious, high octane, competitive and down and dirty activities to keep the lads busy over the stag do. From the banter fuelling Quad Bikes to the fast paced Go Karting circuits, to the awesome firepower of Target Shooting, Warsaw has it all!
Best Bars in Warsaw
Piw Paw - A pub that has 91 beer taps and is open 24/7, it's possibly one of the finest pubs ever and a real piece of stag party heaven.
W Oparach Absurdu - Absurdly nuts and proud of it, one of the many reasons we love this Warsaw pub that is a great place to start any big night out.
SomePlace Else - Based in a converted industrial space, this trendy bar has great food, ice cold drinks and huge TV's showing football all day long to keep the lads' footie needs satisfied.
April - Warsaw Beer Festival
Held in Warsaw's Polish Army Stadium, this craft beer festival plays host to 31 craft breweries. Need we say more?
June - Orange Warsaw Festival
This superb music gig has attracted massive headline acts in recent years and continues to grow.
July - Street Art Festival
A huge, live carnival that takes over the city streets with hundreds of live performers.
Warsaw is known as the Phoenix City for its habit of rising from the ashes.
Where to Head...
You'll find the best of the nightlife in the heart of the city centre. Just remember to pace your drinks as the local brews can be lethal. Eat, drink and be merry but go easy on the home brew vodkas.
Warsaw has a massive range of museums and monuments for history stags to sink their teeth into. However, any sport mad stags would be mad to miss out on a trip to the National Stadium Warsaw, Poland's largest football arena and the national team's ground.
Warsaw's old town is only around 50 years old.
The world's narrowest house (122cm wide) is in the city centre.
The Polish didn't invent vodka ... but neither did the Russians.
A Taste of Warsaw
Eats - Anyone visiting Poland has to try their national dish, bigos. A hunter's stew that's made of sauerkraut, various cuts of meat, tomatoes, honey and mushrooms, this hearty and warming meal is the perfect stomach filler ahead of a big Varsovian night out!
Drinks - Poland might be known for its beers and vodkas, but the Polish are also incredibly fond of their mead, a honey liqueur that's warming and sweet. Made in many variants across Poland, mead is an alternative party starter for an epic Warsaw night out.

Pole position - a Warsaw stag do
However you try to dress it up, whichever way you look at it, Poland's capital is never going to be famous for its picture-postcard views or delicate touch. The city's been rebuilt more times than it can remember. In its own words Warsaw ‘defies storms'. It's been invaded, colonized, ravaged, ransacked and all but obliterated over the years but ever-faithful, determined and full of spirit (bucket-loads!), the capital has bounced back in determined style to bring you a truly cosmopolitan collection of top hotels, restaurants, bars and clubs that easily rival Europe's best.
Modern metropolis, clubbing giant, cuisine heavyweight (we're talking bring it to the table in a forklift kind of way!) and master of reinvention. If its huge nights, action-packed days, hearty grub and crazy venues you're after (and quite frankly, we'd be disappointed if you weren't), then Warsaw's the choice for you!
So a Warsaw stag weekend in a nutshell?
- Buzzing nightlife and action-packed activities
- Top flight accommodation
- Streets jam packed with cocktail bars, drinking dens, trendy pubs, clubs, restaurants and underground venues.
- 24 hour party hotspots
- Rich cultural heritage
- Vodka! (Chopin, Belvedere, Wyborowa.... Poland is king!)
So there you have it gents, a Warsaw stag do; rich in culture, blinding nightlife, white knuckle action, fine cuisine, traditional fare and with some of the planet's most potent poisons running through its veins (the fire-inducing mix of tabasco and vodka makes the legendary Mad Dog one for the truly brave!)
And all at a mere two and a half hour flight from Blighty! And with budget airlines offering regular flights from across the UK, getting to Warsaw has never been easier or more affordable.
After Warsaw, Chicago has the 2nd highest Polish population.
Give us a call, or we'll call you! It really is that simple! With a top range of proven ready-made packages you and the boys could be on your way to a weekend of thumpingly good tunes, stomach pleasing menus, world-class refreshments and stunning Poles dancing all at stag and budget friendly prices.
Absolutely! If there's one thing Warsaw isn't short on its after-hours entertainment. The capital is home to dozens of quality clubs full of scantily clad beauties for discerning stags to admire. Gather the boys for one of StagWeb's strip dinners for a true feast for the senses, or jump on the VIP bandwagon for exclusive access to the hottest parties in town.
And when it comes to action?
You won't be disappointed! Warsaw more than holds its own for daytime activities with everything from go-karts, quads and footie to paintball, off-roading and guns. And we're not talking any old weaponry here, you and the boys will be getting your hands on AK47's and arms used by former KGB and Eastern European police forces!
Mad Dogs and Englishmen - where should we be?
The UNESCO celebrated Old Town, with its cobbled streets, traditional cafés and close proximity to the Royal Route, Fountain Park and Castle Square, is the ideal spot to soak up some culture and slow the place for bleary-eyed stags, but it's the more lively Krakowskie Przedmiescie, with its old-school vibrant style, Nowy Swiat, packed with bars, clubs and eateries and the trendy Praga and Śródmieście districts, where you're likely to be spending the bulk of your time.
When should we go to Warsaw?
You certainly won't be needing your speedos if you head to Polish climes in midwinter when temperatures easily fall below zero. But that being said there'll be plenty of steaming grub and golden refreshment to keep the boys happy at the annual Christmas Fair, and with indoor venues pulsating through the low season, you won't be short on entertainment. Spring through summer is undoubtedly when the capital comes alive, taking everything outdoors to feast, drink and party in the buzzing atmosphere of the Carnival, Midsummer's Eve, Autumn and Jazz Festivals. Golden!
