The best thing about a guys' night in is the sheer simplicity. We don't need a fancy theme, cocktails or a new dress. We just need beer, whiskey and the boys. Don't mess with a formula that works, right? Get a good group of mates together and you don't need to put much work into a good night. But, if you need a few extra ideas and tips, you've come to the right place. We've hosted our fair share of guys' nights and been to even more. We know what works and what doesn't. Here are few awesome ideas. 1


Create the perfect man cave

When it comes to decorating a man cave, creating a space to show off your style is essential. Arrange comfortable leather sofas around the TV or hi-fi system for a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. To add personality, don't hesitate to incorporate decorative elements such as rugs and captivating artwork on the walls. Elevate the ambience with a drinks cabinet or a well-equipped wet bar, perfect for hosting memorable nights in. That being said, decorating a man cave is all about showcasing your individuality and creating a space that reflects your tastes and interests.

Get the drinks in

You don't need to go crazy here. Stock up with a few essential beers and lagers. Keep them chilled in a beer fridge or have them on ice if you're feeling classy. If you guys aren't big drinkers, then switch out the regular beer for a non-alcoholic version. Regardless, there's nothing worse than running out of drinks at 10 pm when you're just getting started. Plus, if you plan on making guys' night a regular thing, then it might be wise to start an alcohol-free beer subscription here so that you're never short on drinks overall. Don't worry if there's plenty left over.

Poker night

When planning a laid-back guys' night, you don't want to invest too much effort in the activities. There should be no strict itinerary or overplanning involved! Opt for a casual activity to kick things off, and a poker night is always a favorite choice that guarantees enjoyment. Whether you're gathered around a table in person or want to try your hand at online poker, a little friendly gambling can add to the perfect relaxed evening. Make sure everyone is familiar with how hands are ranked and agree on the style of poker to avoid any potential arguments or disagreements. Remember, the primary goal is to have a fantastic time and enjoy each other's company!

Watch the big match

If you've got a large TV, make the most of it by inviting the guys around for the match. Load up on snacks, crisps and drinks and you're all set. You'll bond over shared allegiances and shout angrily at the TV. You could even put bets on the result to really spice things up. It always makes the game a little more interesting.

Games console

Getting the XBox out isn't just for the kids. Hook up three or four controllers and you're all set for an awesome night, trust us. Pick up the latest game and load up the multiplayer option. If there are a few of you, keep it moving and swap turns. You'll easily kill four hours before you even realise. There's nothing better than a relaxed guys' night in. There's no drama, just a little gambling, a few drinks and a good laugh. Easy.
