Groomsmen are chosen for lots of reasons. But if their planning skills isn’t one of them, here are some Las Vegas bachelor party suggestions.
BE CENTRALLY LOCATED
You’re a swizzle-stick’s throw from a lounge or bar no matter where your crew stays, but you’re really at the hub of things at Flamingo Las Vegas . Get the wolf-pack vibe going by literally bunking up in one of its bunk-bed rooms. Or, if everyone wants some personal space, grab a cabana or two with direct access to Influence, the pool at The LINQ Hotel + Experience featuring life-sized games and a live DJ.
Get the party started with a celebrity chef-helmed dinner at Bazaar Meat by José Andrés at SAHARA Las Vegas. The James Beard Award-winning chef presents playful cuisine at the celebrated spot, from Chateaubriand to Tartare—the perfect place to kick off an exciting night in the Entertainment Capital of the World.
EXPLORE A SCENE
Surround yourself with a vibe (and bars) on Fremont Street in Downtown Las Vegas. From the Viva Vision canopy and SlotZilla zipline at Fremont Street Experience to people-watching and pub crawling about the bar scene, you’ll have plenty to do and plenty to see.
Working out in the gym is something you can do on your own. Here, you can take it outside. Get some epically shareable photos hiking the trails at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Then put your bravery to the test with the thrill rides at The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod. You’ll be shot straight up 160 feet in the air at 45 mph, spun at 3 Gs while dangling from the edge, and teeter-tottered over the edge of the SkyPod from 866 feet high.
Rev up the bachelor party and sign up for one of the city’s driving experiences, such as SpeedVegas, and get behind the wheel of an amazing sports car. With imports from Lamborghini and McLaren, and no speed limits, make bets for who clocks the fastest speed. Or, if you have some gamers in the mix, there’s the HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas at Luxor Hotel & Casino, where you have retro consoles and Pokémon Gym Battles in the video-game destination.
MAKE A PLAN
Spontaneity takes planning. Did you reserve limos or party buses ahead of time? How about dinner reservations? It always helps to get some of your itinerary set before you guys cut loose.
CLUB IT UP
The world’s most admired DJs routinely play at Resorts World Las Vegas’ Zouk Nightclub, where megastar Zedd currently has a residency. Bring your boys to Zouk and it’s for sure going to be an awesome time. And when you wake up from a fantastic night dancing the night away to chart-toppers by the world-famous artist, head on over to Élia Beach Club at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, where you can keep the party going until the sun goes down!
EXPERIENCE UNIQUE ATTRACTIONS
Las Vegas is filled with one-of-a-kind experiences, many of which should definitely make it on your bachelor party itinerary. Head to AREA15 to experience the immersive playground’s many offerings—including Dueling Axes, an axe-throwing lounge; Liftoff, a panoramic outdoor experience with views of the Las Vegas Strip; and Lost Spirits Distillery, where you can sip on top-shelf selections while taking in the sci-fi-inspired surroundings, burlesque performances, live music and more. If you and your crew hit the links back home, there’s Topgolf Las Vegas, where you can hit a few balls in the multifaceted driving range’s climate-controlled hitting bays—all while enjoying a fantastic menu of food and cocktails.
Now that you have some ideas of what to do, start that party planning and get the crew to Las Vegas.
