Alright, gentlemen, it’s time to put on your game faces and get ready for a night out on the town. Whether you’re celebrating a friend’s birthday, a bachelor party, or just feel like living it up, we’ve got everything you need to know to have the best boys’ night out.
From planning the perfect evening to mapping out an escape route for when things go awry, follow our tips below for a guaranteed good time. And remember, what happens on boys’ night out stays on boys’ night out!
1. Planning is Key
There’s nothing worse than being left out in the cold (literally) because somebody forgot to make reservations. So avoid being that guy by planning ahead and arranging everything in advance. That includes dinner reservations, VIP access to clubs or bars, and even booking a hotel room if you plan to make a night of it. Trust us, your friends will thank you.
Make sure that everything is planned ahead of time before you head out. You also want to look for package deals or discounts that can help you save some money. Most restaurants, bars and nightclubs will offer discounts for large groups if you ask. Schedule a time to meet up, and don’t keep your friends waiting. If someone needs to leave early, let them know beforehand.
2. Set a Dress Code
No matter where you’re headed, it’s always important to dress the part. Make sure you and your crew know the dress code before you arrive so that everyone is on the same page. It can be helpful to set a theme so the boys can get creative and show off their own unique style.
For a luxurious night out on the town, you can get everyone to dress in their best clothes. Ask them to wear smart casual attire and accessorize well. A classy wristwatch can suffice, but for a truly expensive look, edgy layered chain necklaces can be an excellent option. These will add a touch of sophistication and show everyone that you and your boys mean business. But make sure everyone is wearing comfortable shoes to avoid any blisters or sore feet later on.
3. Make an Entrance
Now that you’ve got everything planned, it’s time to make your grand entrance. Whether you roll up in a limo or simply hail a taxi, getting there in style is half the fun. But if you really want to turn heads, why not consider renting a luxury car for the evening? Just think of the people’s reactions when they see you pull up in a Maserati! Bonus points if you can find one with a sunroof—perfect for cruising around town with the top down.
Try to arrive at least 15 minutes before the reservation so you can get checked in and have time to mingle with other guests. This is also a great way to start the night on a high note. You’ll have time to take a few selfies, greet people around you and set the tone for an evening of fun. Always remember to respect the venue and its rules.
4. Set a Budget
You don’t want your night out to be a financial disaster, so set a budget before you even leave the house. Everyone should agree on how much they’ll be allowed to spend and stick to it. This way, you can ensure that everyone has a great time without breaking the bank.
It’s also important to remember that you can have just as much fun without breaking the bank. Don’t feel like you need to go over the top and spend a fortune just to have a good time. There are plenty of activities that you can do for free or at a discounted rate. You just need to be creative and think outside the box. Many bars, for example, offer discounted drinks and food specials during certain hours.
5. Be Prepared for Anything
No matter how well you plan, there’s always the potential for things to go awry—especially when alcohol is involved. So it pays to be prepared for anything that might come your way. This means having cash on hand in case your card gets declined, knowing where the nearest exit is in an emergency, and having a solid game plan for getting home safe at the end of the night. It might not seem like much fun to plan for worst-case scenarios but trust us—it’s better than being stranded in a foreign city with no way to get home!
Follow these tips, and you’re guaranteed the best boys’ night out imaginable. Just don’t forget to have fun, be safe and enjoy your night out! With the right plan in place, you and your friends will have an unforgettable time.
