Fancy going all exotic and booking a hen party in a different country? How about Wales!? Perhaps not quite what you had in mind but allow me change your point of view and tell you why a hen party Cardiff will be the best weekend you’ve ever had!
Voted the UK’s most sociable city you can be sure of a warm welcome from the moment you arrive. Plus, as a capital city there is everything you could ever want on offer. Of course there are the familiar chains of bars and restaurants but Cardiff’s streets are bustling with quirky bars, restaurants and Victorian shopping arcades.
Why choose Cardiff for a Hen do?
Kick off your weekend by getting into the spirit of all things “Cymru” and get yourselves over to Welsh Games. Situated outside the city in the lush green Welsh valleys, you’ll compete against your group in nine different activities each with a Welsh twist. Cling on as long as you can as you ride the Sheep Rodeo, duel with oversized leeks and take on the ultimate obstacle course dressed up in giant dragon outfits! You’ll be rolling around laughing every moment you’re there and photos to record all your silliest moments are included as part of the day.
Once you’ve caught your breath, head back to the bright lights and remedy all that wholesome fresh country air with another Welsh tradition – drinking!
Beat a path to the trendy Cardiff Bay area and jump aboard a boozy boat trip for a cruise with a fully stocked bar. What better way to see the sights?
For the naughtiest of hens, get on down to the best stage show in town – The Dream Boys. You won’t forget this shirt ripping, ab rippling, chest glistening fiesta in a hurry! Even shy hens won’t be able to resist jumping up on stage to help the stars with their performance in this one. There’s a great buffet on hand but you may be a little too occupied to think about food so pick the girls up from the floor and restore your energy in one of Cardiff’s fantastic eateries.
Cosy Club has a great atmosphere, big tables and a huge choice of mains and smaller tapas to share to keep everyone happy. Or why not try Shaam Nights, voted one of the best restaurants in Wales, for some middle eastern mezze set in a beautiful Aladdin style grotto.
Stick with the international vibe and move on to Revolución de Cuba, a rum bar with a Latin theme. It’s a big bar so great for a group but busy enough to make it easy to chat to your fellow bar goers. After all, a hen do is never really complete until you’ve made best friends with a groups of stags dressed as dodgy 80’s rockstars! Dare the hen to get some maracas from behind the bar and start a conga line around the room to get the party started.
Tiger Tiger is a great choice to end the night on. There are four themed bars including a tropical tiki bar, where you can pick up the best cocktails in town before heading on to the dance floor. There are even private karaoke rooms if you want to try out your best Tom Jones and Charlotte Church impersonations.
The best thing is, you don’t even need to book flights to get to this foreign destination! Just off the M4 with great rail connections, there’s no better country to go for good food, friendly locals, exotic bars and guaranteed fun.
