Combining balmy bar crawls with adrenaline-rushing activities and some truly world-class beaches, Lisbon stag dos are in a league of their own.
Set among stunning rolling hills and boasting both river and sea views, the hip Portuguese capital is a real crowd pleaser. Whether the group’s interested in checking out the city’s cultural hotspots, hitting the sand at a buzzing beach resort or making the most of the epic bar culture in Bairro Alto, Lisbon has all your stag do shenanigans covered.
We’ll be here every step of the way to create the ideal itinerary for your group, too. From nabbing the best hotels to getting you into the hottest clubs, let us suss out your ultimate lads trip to Lisbon.
Active adventures or boozy bar crawls? Whatever takes your fancy, you’ll find it in this cool city. Here are just a few Lisbon stag do ideas to get you started:
Lisbon’s most bohemian neighbourhood that’s known for its twisting lanes and bright yellow trams, and dozens of small, shabby-chic drinking holes where punters tend to spill outside, turning the whole area into a huge street party.
The more sophisticated cousin of Bairro Alto, Chiado is the city’s theatre and shopping district which is packed with elegant buildings and some of the city’s top museums and galleries. You’ll also find some of the best miradouros (viewpoints) in the city.
Sandwiched between Chiado and Alfama, Baixi is essentially Lisbon’s heart. It’s made up of wide boulevards and impressive plazas which lead all the way down to the Tagus Estuary. Hit up the shops along Avenida de Liberdade, savour local bites at the Time Out food market or visit major landmarks like the Jardim de São Pedro de Alcântara.
Hotel in the heart of the bar district or apartment overlooking the ocean? There’s no shortage of ace accommodation in Portugal’s capital - and we’re here to find the ideal lodgings for your Lisbon stag weekend.
If your priorities lie more with where you’ll be drinking than where you’ll be sleeping, a centrally-placed hostel with a sociable vibe could be the answer. For stags who appreciate the finer things in life, a posh hotel (think spas and sky-high cocktail bars) in the Lisbon hills might be more appealing.
And then there’s those self-catering options that give you plenty of room to spread out and allow the whole group to stick together.
