Have you always been an avid fan of MI5's 007? Have you pictured yourself doing all those amazing stunts and still stay awesome despite facing death? Then if your wedding is fast approaching, this is the time that you can make that dream a reality. Celebrate your stag party like James Bond!
Roll along with the stag party ideas below:
The Plush Private Screening
Warning, slots are booking up fast for this experience at Altitude 360 (a sky-high destination overlooking Westminster, with views the spy himself would swoon over – did we mention they do weddings, too?). Start with a sleek drinks reception, then wine and dine over three gourmet courses before you take in a private screening of Skyfall, complete with an open cocktail bar. (Skyfall packages from £155pp at Altitude 360 run through 4 November).
You can’t earn your Bond stripes without a good pulse-racing chase, and there’s no better place to get your feet wet than on a RIB (that’s ‘rigid inflatable boats’ for the uninitiated) ride down the Thames at up to 35 knots (from £34.95pp at londonribvoyages.com). Or defy gravity atop the 02 – that’s right, you can mount the dome and take in 360-degree views from the summit (from £22pp).
The Ultimate Martinis
Of course, all that climbing and river-blasting can take its toll on one’s dinner jacket. For a more elegant interpretation of life, James-style, you could just order a few rounds of expertly mixed drinks. Try the bar Dukes Hotel (a favourite Fleming haunt back in the day) or The American Bar at The Stafford for Mayfair refinement, or hit up Paramount (positioned at the sky-scraping peak of the Centre Point) for a thoroughly modern cocktail experience.
