Ideas for a stag party weekend in Frankfurt

21 posts in this topic

Hey everyone

 

I am bringing a stag group from Cork, Ireland, over to Frankfurt for the weekend a weekend. Can anyone recommend any pubs that would be "stag-friendly"? I don't want to arrive and find that everywhere doesn't let large groups in or has issues with large numbers. There's 20 of us... and plan on drinking quite heavily!!!

 

Any replies would be appreciated.

O'Reilly's by the hauptbanhof should work, then you can go to some ropey strip joint afterwards as they are all within walking distance of the pub.

Alt Sachsenhausen seems to be the Stag/Hen capital of Frankfurt - Loads of little pubs in a very short stagger from each other.

 

All sorts of bars too, American, Brazilian, Irish I think there may even be a German one there somewhere ;)

Cheers guys, thanks for the help.

 

We're staying right by the train station too so that should be handy. Definately hitting Cocoon on the saturday night so strip joints-a-plenty on the sunday! Hope to stay well clear of Irish pubs over the wkend but these things sort of sessions always end back up in an Irish pub somewhere!

 

Whats the view on dress code in Frankfurt...in general? Is there strict code on shoes, trousers etc in most pubs/clubs?

Lot of rubbish strip clubs around the main train station! Golden Gate would be one of the better ones... or so I've been told.

 

O'Reillys is right there bedide you. Best area for going out would be Sachsenhausen but it does have quite a few Irish bars.

 

The clubs in Frankfurt are actually good! Isn't Cocoon Sven Vath's place?? He was a resident DJ at the U60311 club at Hauptwache before that. Good club in an old converted u-bahn station, mainly techno!

 

My favourite is King Kamehameha on Hanauer Landstrasse. There was another good club next door to 190 East but I'm not sure if it's still there!

alt sachsenhausen and the hauptbanhhof will have no dress code, but best to get a bit dressed up for Cocoon or any hanauerlandstrasse clubs. jeans OK, but probably not trainers/t-shits. The bouncers can be a bit picky. perhaps don't arrive in a goup of 20 to make sure you all get in, and go early.

 

bear in mind that pubs don't relly get busy until about 10pm (as they are often open until 3 or 4 am) and clubs after 12 (til 5am). it is possible to drink 24hrs in FFT at some of the dodgier pubs in town.

 

oh and i hear Pure Platinum is better that Golden Gate which has men and women dancing. So i heard.

Make sure you go to the correct PP - there are 2.

 

One is small and rubbish - it is a flat fee to get in and then all of the beer/wine you can drink is included - but only a couple of munters work there.

 

The other one is quite acceptable.

Hello, I am arranging a stag trip to Frankfurt on Friday 01 June 2007 and have a few questions which i would be grateful if you could help with.

 

Firstly we are staying near the Hauptbahnoff and would like to know of a local park that we could play 5-a-side football in on a Saturday morning. Street names would great and i can find it on Google Maps.

 

Secondly, can you suggest any decent "pop" music nightclubs that are big, near to the city centre. We are not into techno music and would prefer 70's, 80's American style! Also on this theme are there any karaoke bars near to the Hauptbahnoff?

 

Finally (for now) are there any beer kellers near to the Eiserner Steg that are open Friday afternoon? If not are there any good beer kellers in Frankfurt that we could get 20 seats around on a big table?

 

Your help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks...

You could play football in the Grünenbergpark it is a bit of a walk from Hauptbahnhof though. Or possibly down by Westhafen.

 

Sachsenhausen is more famous for the Apfelwein than the beer but there are loads of places around. I will have a think.

 

As for clubs I am not really sure on places that do 80's pop etc but I am not much of a club expert - I have usually flaked out and gone home early before going to the club! Perhaps Sinkkasten would be a good one. Boogielicious would be able to say more about is on and when at the clubs in Frankfurt.

 

All the blokes I have known that have come here for stag nights have always headed to Alt Sachsenhausen. I guess it is lively but I try to avoid as much as possible a bit dingy and sometimes impossible to go to the toilet without being molested on the way.

If you're really after a beer, you could try the Zwölf Apostel. It's central and they brew their own pils. However, as Miss Purple Muffin quite rightly stated, this is Apfelwein/Äbbelwoi country. To get you started, there is a current thread "Best Apfelweinwirtschaft in Frankfurt" on this very board about taverns. Wagner's is the traditionalist's bastion, and a Frankfurt institution, but the thread has plenty of other suggestions. Note also: I happen to like Apfelwein, but it's not to everybody's taste and does divide opinion among the expats.

 

Agree with Miss Purple Muffin for the club too. Sinkkasten would be the one to look at first for an 80s night. Otherwise, I think Odeon has a regular 80s night too, but I believe it's only a monthly one.

 

I am curious about something though: why Frankfurt?

 

Edit: I'd forget my head if it wasn't attached. A possible alternative: now that summer is coming, the 'beach clubs' (en anglais dans le texte) will be open.

Thanks for your help - One more idea: We went to Munich last year and struggled to find a casino that has roulette tables etc - is there one in Frankfurt? Or arent they something that German cities have?

O'Reilly's at the hauptbahnhof ...or maybe you don't want to fly from Cork to go to an "Irish" pub?

Yep I'm agreeeing with this one- spent last weekend with about 40 guys from Dublin attempting the same thing! I say 'attempting' as when I met them at about 10pm they'd been drinking since 1 ish and it got fairly messy... but they don't seem to mind in there and Fri/Sat night you've got the opportunity to really humiliate yourselves on karaoke!

Grünenbergpark's not too difficult to get to- it's next to Westend U Bahn station (if I'm thinking of the right place) or else is about a 30 min walk from the Hbf

I haven't been to a casino in Frankfurt itself, but the one in Bad Homburg, about a 30mins S-bahn ride away, does roulette (and I know the one in Baden-Baden also has some nice tables - but that's, probably, a bit far to go for a game).

Thanks for the information on the Casino situation, thats a shame as i reckon 20 english semi-drunken blokes would of blown a fair amount of money into the german economy !

 

How about Crazy Golf or a "pitch and putt" golf course ?

There's a crazy golf place (not very big though) in the middle of the forest in Kronberg (about 25 mins on the S Bahn from Hbf). The guy in the little cabin does sell beers though!

The Bad Homburg casino has free (sort of) bus transfer from the Hauptbahnhof:

 

 

The Bad Homburg casino offers guests from and to Frankfurt an own free bus transfer. The casino-express goes from 2 p. m. to 10 p. m. every full hour, after that hourly from 10.25 p. m. to 1.25 a. m. from Frankfurt directly to the casino in the Bad Homburg spa gardens. The first return journey to Frankfurt starts at 4 p. m., the last goes after the end of play.

 

The stations in Frankfurt are located at the south side of the main station (bus station gate 9) and at the Poseidon-house in the Theodor-Heuss-Allee opposite of the fair.

 

The fee, 6,00 EURO at present, is offset against the entrance fee ("Big game" 2,5 EURO), the difference will be refunded.

You can also check out their English Web site:

Hello again, during the World Cup last year it looked like some of the beer / Apfelwein halls had gardens that ent down to the riverside? If this wasnt just for the worldcup can you let me know where we could find a big venue that has tables etc outside (near to the Eiserner Steg)?

 

Thanks again your all being a great help !
