Night out in Chester - advice wanted please


i'm organsing a trip to chester in August for my friends stag do mainly because he wanted to go to the races but of course we will want to go out as well.

I'm reading mixed reviews about the night life so i wanted some advice on places to go or avoid.

There are around 12 of us going and we are all male aged between 28-35

Have a rethink, go to Manchester or Liverpool, chester is not really a stag destination

You can stay in Liverpool and still go to Chester Races.

Ignore the comments, Chester is great. There are many pubs to walk round, some better than others. They have the weatherspoons and Living Room and classier!! We went to Cruise and it was brilliant. http://www.cruisechester.com/ some great restaurants too. For a gang there are Tavel lodges 1 min from the Main Street!

Chester is very busy races nights so even more difficult for large groups to get into somewhere. If the weather holds pubs are best with many open til two and some later- the Marlborough and plumbers in particular. We head down lower bridge street on races nights to avoid some of the crowds and recommend, brewery taps, bear and billet, cross keys and over river there are four ok pubs in hand bridge. Otherwise stick to canal route and work along

Race nights are very, very busy. Also there are places in Chester that do not allow any groups that look as though they may be stag or hen.

Have you got accommodation already? For a group that size you may have a problem on a race weekend

In general the advice to go elsewhere shoud be seriously considered.

My son was a barman in Chester and he would certainly recommend Liverpool for a stag or hen outing.
