Choosing a hen party venue
Published date: 17th June 2019
Perhaps you’re planning to drink the bar dry and paint the town red, or maybe you just want a quiet evening with your nearest and dearest. Still, no matter what you’re doing on your hen night, you’re going to need a place to do it! Choosing the venue is one of the most important parts of planning a hen party, and there’s no such thing as the perfect party space – it all depends on what kind of activities you’ve got planned.
So what kind of night would you like?
Pubs ‘n’ Clubs
Ask the average person to describe the average hen night, and they’ll most likely paint you a picture of booze-soaked revelry and raunchy dares. If that’s the kind of blueprint you’re following then you’ll probably want to stick to pubs and clubs; start with a few refreshments down the local before heading into town for a night of dancing, drinking, and good times. If you’ve brought along one of those infamous hen night dare games, a pub is the ideal place to play it, especially if the dares involve flirting with blokes or asking strangers for condoms.
A Hen Do at Home
The stereotypical pubbing/clubbing hen night is certainly popular, but it’s not the only option. Not everyone enjoys getting plastered in public, and it’s worth remembering that a quiet night in can be just as much fun as a loud night out. DVD players, pizza delivery, and other mod cons ensure that there’s plenty of fun to be had without leaving the house, and even if you do plan on drinking ‘til you drop, staying home may yet be the best course of action. After all, your drunken antics will be a lot less embarrassing if the outside world isn’t privy to them!
Hire a Room!
If you’re not a big fan of clubbing, but you don’t want to just stay at home for your last night of singledom, why not consider hiring a function room? There are plenty around if you know where to look – pubs, church halls, social clubs, hotels and concert venues will all accommodate your party if the price is right. You can put up decorations, hire a DJ or a band…if you’re lucky, there might even be a bar! Hiring a room is a little more expensive than staying at home, obviously, but at least you know you won’t be cleaning spilt wine and vomit out of your carpet the following morning.
Make a Holiday of it
Of course, if you really want to go all-out for your hen party, why not go on holiday? You don’t necessarily have to go as far as Magaluf or Marbella; a long weekend in a country cottage is an increasingly popular choice for hens and their parties. You can go and explore the local attractions during the day, and spend the evening playing games and drinking in the cottage!
These four suggestions are far from the whole story. There are a million and one ways to spend your hen night, and even if none of these examples appeal to you, there’s still a world of hen night fun just waiting to be discovered. Just think about what you and your friends would most enjoy doing…and then go do it!
