London's top restaurants for Stag and Hen parties

Don that pink veil and furry handcuffs...

You've got the L-plates/ fake inflatable boobs ready and you're all tanked up on booze… all that's left is to line your stomach with a bit of fodder before you head out to get that all-important picture of your bride/ groom gripping off with a stranger so that you can embarrass them on facebook. At this point a cosy chin-wag over froie gras and a 1978 Chateau Latour at a Michelin-starred eatery is precisely not what the doctor ordered. Unless your doctor is the doctor from Back To The Future, of course… because let's face it – he was a bit of a mental.

What you're looking for now is a huge row of tables and benches serving mountains of nutritionally poor/ beer soaking grub preferably to a backing-track of Black Lace's Agadoo.

So don that pink veil and furry handcuffs, sit back and devour our list of the very best restaurants for stag and hen do that London has to offer.

Nearest Station: Green Park (0.1 miles)

Nordic Bar
25 Newman Street W1T 1PN

Chalk Farm Road NW1 8AH
Region: Camden
Nearest Station: Camden Town (0.2 miles)

AIL Says: This lavish restaurant is a hit with hen and stag parties, as after dinner guests can head to the bar or to the dancefloor for a boogie. The Pan-Asian menu is very good, and the exotic surroundings are not easily forgotten.
