How is a pub crawl like

When you are on a night out, you might be thinking about going to a bar. But why stay in only one bar? Wouldn’t it be even more fun to move around various bars, and enjoy every single one of them? And this is exactly why people organize bar hopping, aka pub crawl. In this case, you will get the craziest experience, by dizzily “crawling” from one bar to another.


The general idea of a bar-hopping to move around different bars in a night out. It can be either organized or disorganized. The unorganized ones are quite simple. All you need is a group of friends to meet at a bar, have some drinks, and decide spontaneously when to leave, where to head next. Theoretically, as long as you are not too drunk, you can keep on hopping until every bar is closed.


For the organized ones, the idea is quite similar, but the process is a bit different. So you will usually sign up for it prior to the event, and pay a registration fee. Then you meet your group at one bar, from which you will start. After spending a certain amount of time at one bar, your bar hopping guide will lead you to the next one. Usually there is a certain schedule to follow, and the event will end at a certain time. So the real difference here is really just the organization.

How to do a pub crawl?

There are a few general steps which one could use, when it comes to doing an organized pub crawl.


First and foremost, you need to have your own brand. You will need the acknowledgement of bars and clubs, in order to do organized pub crawls at their places. So make sure you distinguish yourself as a legitimate organizer.


Second, you need to get into contact with the bars and clubs. With their permission, you know that you are clear to hold the pub crawl at their places.


Then you need to advertise your pub crawl using various platforms. You need to make sure people, or enough amount of people actually shows up at your pub crawl. Let them know the price for the pub crawl, as well as the starting time and location. Also the general route, venues involved, what to expect and etc. In general, make sure people come prepared.


On the day when the event starts, make sure you show up at the meeting place earlier than your guests. Make sure you stay sober throughout the event, and lead your guest safely to each venue. After all, as the organizer, you are somehow responsible for the safety and happiness of your guests. So always stay calm but alerted, and everything will work out just fine!
