Bar crawls became hugely popular in recent years and are now traveller's favourite way to explore a city at night, while meeting fellow travellers and experiencing an unforgettable night out. Most of them are priced around $10 and $20. All you need to do is to turn up at a central location, meet your guide and the rest of the group. You are now ready, to hop from bar to bar until you reach your final destination, the nightclub. So get ready to party. You can also organise a bar crawl with friends if you want to spicy up your weekend.

As Christmas and New year eve bar crawls are becoming increasing popular especially among travellers. It is a known alternative to get into big clubs if you did not have the chance to purchase your ticket well in advance. Beware that prices over the festive period usually double or even triple


Black and White Bar Crawl


Black and White Bar Crawl Entry Fee


This theme consists of wearing a totally black or white outfit. We all have these colours in our wardrobe, so it should not be too challenging to match a pair of trousers with a top. If your group respects the theme, group photos will come out great. Give it a try, we guarantee you a great party experience.


Christmas Bar Crawl


Christmas Bar Crawl Party


Us, Westerners are always looking forward to Christmas. The concept is simple, either wear your best/ugliest Christmas sweater or put on that dusty Christmas hat from last year. Crawl from bar to bar to spread the magic of Christmas while enjoying a few glasses of mulled wine or cider. Definitely a must-do and another good reason to call a party


Full moon Bar Crawl


Full moon Bar Crawl in Thailand


The full moon tradition comes straight from the Island of Ko Pha Ngan, where revellers make up with UV-sensitive paint to celebrate the full moon appearance, on the beach around the 20th of each month. All you need is some UV paint (just a few dollars) and a bit of creativity to get the party going. For the best results, go to bars and clubs where UV strip lights are used heavily (Black Light).


Poster Bar Crawl


Poster Bar Crawl With white T-shirt


Grab an old white Tee and a black marker pen and invite your friends to tag along. Just like a white board, express your feelings by writing or drawing on your friends' T-shirts. As the night progresses, messages will get funnier and wilder. On the next day, after the party, you will love rewinding the night and discover what was left on your T-shirt's canvas.

Kiss Me Bar Crawl


Kiss Me Bar Crawl with girls kissing


Another original theme, where the guests receive free drinks when they kiss each other, usually behind a heart cut-out frame specially crafted for the occasion. Only proper kisses count to receive you drink. Trust us, you cannot imagine what people are ready to do for a free drink. Will you dare to join the party?


Bingo Bar Crawl


Bingo Bar Crawl Card


Just like the game of Bingo, dearly loved by our parents and grandparents, you are given a bingo card. Each number is linked to an action or a challenge you need to perform during the crawl and must be witnessed by one of the organisers to be ticked off.

You win a prize when you complete a line or the whole grid. Usually a free drink for a line, and a free bar crawl ticket or a bottle of spirit for the grid. Download game card


Golf Bar Crawl


Golf Bar Crawl for party-lovers


Another great theme, similar to a game of golf, each bar is attributed a number, which determines how many gulps/swigs of drinks you have to finish your drink which determines the par of the bar. Then a referee needs to track how many gulps/swigs people take for each drink in each bar. The participant with the lowest count at the end of the night wins. As you imagine, people often lose count. This theme usually requires the guest to dress up as golfer, because why not!


Traffic Light Bar Crawl


Traffic Light Bar Crawl Cover


With no doubt a theme that will please all singleton out there. The rules are simple. Wear a coloured wristband, tag, or glow sticks to advertise if you are single, undecided or taken. This party theme is a pure classic!

You guessed it:

  • Green - Ready to Mingle
  • Yellow - Maybe, Baby
  • Red - Oops, I am Taken


Casino Bar Crawl


Casino Bar Crawl for party-goers


Don't worry, no gambling with money is involved in this theme. If you have never tried that theme, it simply consists of throwing a dice to determine how many drinks each receive before taking part. You can create your own die to change the odds. Another great nightout guaranteed


Fancy Dress Bar Crawl


Fancy Dress Bar Crawl Dress Up


Similar to the Black and White Bar Crawl, these types of bar crawls consist of dressing up according to a theme. The most popular ones are usually superheroes, back to the 70s, 80s, Mardi Gras or even Halloween style. Ideas are limitless
