Casual Party Planning Ideas For a Guy’s Night In

Guy’s night is a special part of every man’s work week. You get to unwind with the guys and relax away from all of the stresses and responsibilities of life. Hosting the party is a special honour that also comes with a special responsibility to come up with some fun activities to keep everyone occupied. Sipping beer and chatting is even better when you’re in the midst of a fun activity. Here are some activities that you should try.


A friendly game of poker

There’s no better way to have some friendly competition than playing a good game of poker. It’s the quintessential guy’s night sport. It lets you sit back, relax, and find ways to outsmart the pals you know so well. The difficulty is only upped by the fact that you know each other so well. Although, it helps if you know the game well.

All you need is a deck of cards, some drinks, and you’re pretty much good to go. Make sure that the table you’re playing on gives you lots of space to work with so that you can comfortably enjoy snacks and drinks. Remember, it’s not gambling if you’re only playing for fun!


Couch E-sports

Playing sports is great and all, but sometimes you want to just sit back and relax while you watch a dynamic game unfold on your TV. However, you can actually get the best of both worlds by playing some video games. Sports video games are becoming an irreplaceable part of guy’s nights. Why watch reruns of the latest game when you can make a match worth watching on your own?

Fun team-oriented games aren’t just limited to sports, either. You can count on a variety of shooting, adventure, and puzzle games to keep you occupied any time you pick up your controller.


Bring some unique tastes into the mix

It’s pretty much implied that your party is going to feature a lot of beer. However, nobody says you have to feature the regular beer everyone is used to. Beers come in various flavours and sizes, so why not introduce something new to your guy’s night.

Craft beer is an excellent way to spice up the regular repertoire of beer that you and your friends are used to. Lots of stores consider brewing beer as an art, and they put a lot of effort into new flavours. These types of beer stores and bars often offer delivery, which means that you can get some new stuff to test out without setting foot outside your home.


Keep it well stocked

Casual or not, nobody wants to hit up a party where there are no snacks or drinks. You need to have plentiful sources of food to keep everyone energized. Horsing around and drinking beer can make you work up quite the appetite. Without something to munch on, you can kiss your party atmosphere goodbye. 

You should strive for diversity in your snack choices. Chips and fries are great, but they get old fast. Aim for some cakes and baked goods to balance things out. Hit up the local Zest Patisserie and see if they have anything your pals would like to chow down on. As long as it’s full of carbs, you can be sure that it’ll keep the night going strong.


Get in chef mode

Speaking of food, it’s no secret that guys love to grill their own. Whenever spring rolls around and the weather becomes bearable, you can be sure that someone will suggest grilling some food in their backyard. Bust out the grill, have a few beers, and enjoy the fresh air while cooking up a hearty meal with your buddies.

You have to plan ahead before calling your pals over. You need some supplies, so make sure that everyone contributes enough meat to cook to keep everyone satisfied, and then some. Just to be sure, ask if anyone has any allergies beforehand. Everyone will probably bring their own stash of spices, so it’s best to be safe.



Creating a recipe for the perfect guy’s night is pretty easy. Inject some fun into the party with some of these ideas, and you can be sure that the boys will appreciate them. As long as you keep it simple and chill, the night will be a blast.
