Lisbon is the city to come if you want a stag weekend of cheap booze, and adventure. The Portuguese capital lies on the River Tagus estuary, combining an array of attractive ancient sites with a vibrant modern nightlife. For lads wanting a bit of culture while they get happy on the local Port wines then this is the place to go. Portugal’s capital city is famed for its steep winding streets and stunningly beautiful architecture. The city is full of must-see sights such as the Belém Tower and the São Jorge Castle thats dates back to the time when Portugal was part of the Moorish, Islamic empire.
But if you’re coming on a Lisbon Stag Do then you’ll want to do more than the usual culture-vulture tour, you’ll want to party! So check out our guide below, using the menu to jump to each section.
Flying to Lisbon from the UK couldn’t be easier, with direct flights from both London and regional airports such as Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool. According to Skyscanner flying from London and Manchester is the cheapest option with flights for as little as £50 in the low seasons from September to February. If you’re flying to Lisbon in the Summer months you can expect to pay up to £200 return.
They say only ‘Mad Dogs and Englishmen’ go out in the mid-day sun, and if you’re a Mad Dog or an Englishman you’ll enjoy Lisbon best in July and August. That’s when temperatures get up to 28 degrees centigrade. According to Holiday-Weather September is the best month for a having a dip in the sea, with sea temperatures being up to 20 degrees. However in the winter months of December to February temperatures get down as highs of 15 degrees and lows of 9 degrees. If you’re a hardened Brit and want to save money then the Winter months are the ideal time to come for a budget Lisbon stag do, however many activities are not suitable or even available out of season.
There’s plenty to do for lads in the daytime in Lisbon, whether you’re looking for classic stag do activities such as Paintballing or adventurous activities like Surfing. One of the best things about Lisbon in comparison to other awesome stag do destinations, apart from the weather, is its waterfront and seaside location. That means that lads can enjoy days out chilling with beers on the beach or if you need a hit of adrenaline then you can try Wake-boarding or a ride on a Jet-ski. If you’re more of a land lubber than a scurvy sea dog then you should definitely try out Go Karting, which is guaranteed to get your competitive juices flowing as you see who in your group is the real driving champion!
Football is the most popular sport in Portugal, and the Portuguese have reasons to be proud of both its history and the quality of Portuguese football (*cough, Ronaldo cough*). Out of the ‘big three’ teams (Os Três Grandes) two reside in Lisbon itself. And if you’re football crazy, football mad we can get you in to check out Benfica football club, organising a stadium tour for you and the lads. But maybe you fancy a kick-a-bout yourself? Well we can sort you out with a five a side game indoor and outdoor. And if you want to show the locals that we Brits can play (and win) then we can organise a football match against a local team too! And if you want more than just an old fashioned kick-a-bout then you should try Bubble Football in Lisbon, which will have you in stitches as you try to score in hilarious sumo-style Zorb suits.
The Portuguese capital is renowned for its vibrant nightlife with a range of old fashioned wine bars, Fado Houses (playing popular local music), discos and banging nightclubs. When it comes to booze the Portuguese do wine the best, with ‘vihno’ accompanying traditional dinners. That’s why you should definitely try out a Wine Tasting evening, or even a tour of wine bars before you hit the town. A Lisbon stag do wouldn’t be complete with out a night out on the tiles, and at Pissup we can sort you out with a top local guide who will show you the best spots in town.
The real Lisbon party districts are Bairro Alto and Cais do Sodré, though there’s plenty of nightlife action taking place all over central Lisbon. If you want to see what a traditional Fado House is like then going to A Tasca do Chico is a must. For wine lovers or wannabe wine experts you should head to a classic-style Portuguese wine bar such as BA Wine Bar in Bairro Alto. Fancy something a bit more lively? Then head to Lux which has three floor where top DJs spin dance floor bangers! But the best thing to do if you’re coming to Lisbon on a stag weekend is to book a Lisbon Bar Crawl or Lisbon Stag Night, there our guides can take you to the best nightspots with the cheapest drinks. And better yet we can guarantee you end the night with a smile on your face as we take you to the best strip clubs in Lisbon. See some hot Portuguese girls get x-rated and party till the wee hours!
After a night out with Pissup we’re sure you’ll need to recover. Especially the following day before you hit the bars and clubs of Lisbon all over again. This is the perfect time to take advantage of Lisbon’s waterfront location: take a trip down the River Tagus in a private boat, on our Boat Trip, and you can enjoy a day out drinking beer, chilling in the sun!
If you want to combine sightseeing with fun in the sun then you should try out a Segway Tour, that way you’ll get to travel through ancient districts of the city – as well as getting to see the best views of the city – without the boredom of walking!
