How to Organise a Successful Pub Hopping Party for your Friends.

A pub crawl is a popular social activity that is popular among the western countries, it is slowly gaining fans in India too. In cities like Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai, number of bars and pubs are located near to each other, making it easy to hop from one pub to another.


Now, what is a pub crawl/hop? It is an exercise, where a group of friends visit series of pubs in one night. It started in England where people, started to visit various small pubs sampling local brews at each pub, soon this became a partying event which is organized for birthday parties, bachelorette parties, farewells etc.,


If you are planning to organize a pub crawl for your gang, here is the step by step procedure to plan a perfect pub hopping party.


Prepare a route map: Planning is very crucial for a successful pub hopping session. First, research how many pubs are there nearby and then select those that are most apt for you and which are within 10 km radius. Always avoid those pubs that have a wait time and try to include those which are favorites among the majority of your group. Next, call those selected pubs and find out if they have a reservation system, if yes then inform them the approximate timing and number of people. This not only helps the pub to be prepared for you but also gives you a chance to grab some free drinks or food.


Send Invites: Now that the itinerary is prepared, send out the invitations to all the group members. Do not forget to include the schedule of the pub hopping along with the route map, it is advised to share the contact numbers of all the group members so that they can stay in touch throughout the event.


Organize the logistics: Another important aspect is the logistics, it is vital that the group stays on course and everyone in the group visit all the bars in the itinerary and more importantly your drunk friends must not drive or lose track. In order to achieve this, make smaller groups within your group of friends and designate one person the responsibility of directing the rest of the members as per the itinerary.


Mealtime: It is equally important to see that all the members of the group have something to eat in between the hopping, as you do not want your friends to puke their guts out. So, make sure to include sometime before and in the middle of the program for meals.


Help in creating memories: The main agenda of pub hopping is to have fun with friends and make some memories. To make it easy create a social media group exclusive for your gang and ask the members to post pictures using the same hashtag. This will help all the members to easily collect all the pictures. To make the pub hopping even exciting, plan a dress code, but take care you do not overdo it.

Unwritten Rule Book: Although it is the organizer’s responsibility to plan, it is in each and everyone’s hands to make sure that the program goes on as planned. The members of the group must follow some untold rules such as always stick to the itinerary and make sure to leave the pub on time also,they must not engage in any violent activities.
