We get it: January sucks. It’s dark, wet, and Christmas is a distant memory that’s left you broke. Fear not me ladies, we have just the cure: use one of these here ideas and plan a big girls night out!
Whether it’s a special Saturday night out with the girls or you’re on the look out for hen party ideas after getting the post-Christmas shocker news your bestie’s man is putting a ring on it – there’s something in here that will do the trick. We’ve even picked one unusual ladies night or hen party idea for top cities across the UK, so you can make a trip out of it or find something closer to home.
So grab your heels and get your coat – you’ll catch an awful cold otherwise – and take part with your girls in one of these six unusual ladies night ideas.
1. Brighton: Win a bottle at Lady Chastity’s Reserve
Brighton may entice you with the seaside in the summer but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth a visit in the winter. With some of the best pubs in the south open till late, nothing will get your spirits up more than, well, downing some spirits. But no girls night out in Brighton is complete without stepping into escape room Lady Chastity’s Reserve at the World’s End pub and trying to win a bottle of her fabled aphrodisiac wine. And the fun doesn’t stop there! The venue is also home to a whole host of gaming options, and there are three other pubs (the Joker, Hare & Hounds and Unbarred Taproom) within stumbling distance – as well as Brighton’s favourite pizzaria Fatto a Mano just across the road.
2. Blackpool: have a cheeky giggle with Funny Girls
Blackpool can be cold, wet and depressing in the winter and, depending on your outlook, the latter view the whole year round. The good news is there are still plenty of options because Blackpool is one of the UK’s favourite hen party destinations, after all. With Funny Girls Cabaret’s spring shows starting up on January 24, you’ll be able to enjoy a tipple along with some good old fashioned fun. Enjoy dancing, food and a night of tongue in cheek performances that are enough to make your mother blush. A perfect one for hen party ideas and those who get a jolly from embarrassing an older relative. We recommend the Prosecco party. Five bottles for £95? ‘Nuff said.
3. London: play away at a wonky toy shop escape room
For those of you in London who can’t get change from a fifty on a round of drinks (we feel you), we have an escape room which will make sure you’re not broke and in bed by 9.30pm. Locate the secret rooms in Islington’s Depot pub to play one of the funniest escape rooms in the world: Poppa Plock’s Wonky Workshop. Guided by the outrageous ventriloquist dummy Oki, your team must work together to find a tantalising (oo-er!) combination of items and create Plock’s penultimate creation. Once you’ve succeeded in creating the most twisted toy of them all, why not take on the capital and make it a girls night out in London to remember?
4. Bristol: fancy a bit of beef? Try Steak of the Art
Looking for something slightly less active to do on your night out? Maybe your girls are split between sophisticated types who prefer a classy sit-down meal, and creatives who are after a night spent appreciating fine art. You must be wondering how you can possibly accommodate both – do you go to an art gallery or have a fancy meal out? Catering for this very quandary is Bristol’s Steak of the Art. Serving the best in beef and fish (plus gourmet events to keep an eye on!), the venue fills the hole in this very niche market perfectly with its dedicated and exclusive ever-changing gallery space. Definitely an experience to remember!
5. Manchester: “Salmon skin roll” at Sushi School
It’s no secret that a lot of people end up a little, ahem, rounder after Christmas. If losing weight is your 2020 resolution, learning to create one of the tastiest and healthiest foods out there is a good start. At Manchester Selfridges Trafford’s Sushi School, your chef will begin by teaching you how to cook, cut and roll your rice into perfect California rolls, nigiri and more. Over the course of the lesson you’ll be able to tell what to look out for in fresh and quality products before boxing up and taking home your own creations. This masterclass ends before the shops close too, giving you the perfect opportunity to indulge in some retail therapy too.
6. Glasgow: Shake your own cocktails before you shake that groove thang
Get ready for a night of booze-fuelled fun at the Missoula bar in Glasgow. Gather your best girls and book yourself into a cocktail class to mix up a storm with the help of a master mixologist, all for the insanely reasonable price of £25 per person! Neck some shots and get this party started as you move from the bar to the dance floor, ready to get down to a belting mix of 80s classics and dance floor fillers that’ll have you on your feet until last orders.
So, ladies – are you up for something different?
If you can afford a night out this January, don’t go to the same old hot spots. Try something new in 2020 and you’ll find your winter blues melting away. Book your game now or find more ideas in our blog girls night out ideas in London and beyond.
