    Looking for some good suggestions for a Bachelor Party/Weekend in London in the middle of May.

    Obviously a trip to Northampton to check out the shoe outlets and checking out Savile Row.

    Any other stuff we should see and do?

    Also looking for recommendation on bars and clubs to hit and places to eat.

    One last thing. We are also looking to get straight razor shaves while we are there and would love a recommendation on somewhere to get them done.

    I'm not sure about shopping, I limited myself to C&J last time I was there. But for food I loved the River Cafe and would eat there again in an instant.

    Get a shave at Geo. F Trumpers
    There are a lot of good bars, but if you like cigars, go to the Lanesborough. Spoiled for choice with clubbing too, but that can be hard to organise.
    All depends how many people there are in your group though...

    Why would you travel to London for a bachelor party?

    So you guys are members of Style Forum and would give up the opportunity to go to Northampton on your only trip to London?

    I prefer Sophisticats. Better value than SR and definitely better value than Stringfellows.

    Ok first off, not sure why Joe is making this sound so gay. The whole trip is based on going to Britannia Stadium, to watch Stoke city vs. Arsenal (The groom's favourtie team).

    The groom is also a SF member thus the trip to Northhampton.

    So going on Northampton for one day of a 5 day bachelor party trip is gay. But traveling to London specifically to go to Northampton is not?
