It’s come down to it, you’re finally ready to tie the knot with that special lady, but there’s just one thing left to do… bachelor party in Vegas!
This ritualistic tradition has been romanticized in many films and songs, and is by no means a subtle experience. Las Vegas has a lot to offer in the way of entertainment, fine dining, and more; everything you need to have a bachelor party your friends will be talking about for years.
Book Your Perfect Hotel Or Resort
Las Vegas is home to hundreds of resorts and hotels, some of which are sub-par and some of which are some of the top rated on the planet. This all depends on your budget of course, but when it comes to a bachelor party, you spare no expense, right?
According to US News, the number one resort in Las Vegas in 2018 is the Mandarin Oriental Resort. This quiet resort boasts a mere 392 guest rooms, hardly a fraction of what some of the giants in the area can conjure, but the atmosphere is what makes it a favorite among its patrons. The rooms are spacious and accommodating, with flat-screen TVs, showers, and even tubs with relaxing jets.
Time For Some Activities!
So you’ve booked that perfect hotel suite, and you’re all settled in. Now it’s time to hit the town and really live what Las Vegas is famous (or infamous) for. Casinos, Lounges, Gentlemen’s clubs, and much, much more.
Let’s start with some drinks. If you like a laid-back lounge setting, there’s nothing better than a Las Vegas lounge. One of the best in the business is the Clique Bar and Lounge, located on Las Vegas Blvd. South at the Cosmopolitan. Offering tableside mixology and a unique musical atmosphere, this lounge is sure to provide you with an authentic and memorable Vegas experience. You can schedule ahead of time to host your own private event, or just walk right in.
There are some other really unique things you can do as a bachelor in Las Vegas, and one of this is flying a fighter jet. Oh yes, you heard that correctly. Flying a fighter jet. Sky Combat Ace is a company in Las Vegas that lets you get behind the controls of a fighter jet (while being guided by an expert, of course!) and do all kinds of aerial tricks and acrobatics.
But don’t stop there! If you want the true fighter jet experience, the company offers a package that allows you to ride along during a simulated dogfight. That’s right, planes shooting blanks at each other in a simulated battle. Now that’s worth remembering!
If flying planes isn’t your speed, you can always hit the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and put yourself behind the wheel of some of the fastest vehicles on the planet. Dream Racing offers you the chance to hit the gas in a Ferrari, Porsche, or one of many other sports vehicles. After graduating from your simulator first, you’ll be strapped into one of these cars, with a certified instructor in the passenger seat. Let’s make it memorable for him, too.
Do A Little Gambling
Alright so you’ve booked a hotel, had some drinks, flown a fighter jet (hopefully not in that order), and now you’re ready to get down to the nitty-gritty; to the very heart of Vegas. You want to try out some of its famous Casinos, and if you’re lucky, go home a richer man.
Las Vegas has hundreds of Casinos, but some have a better rapport with customers than others. According to CNN travel, if you’re looking to try your hand at slots, the best Casino to do so at is the Aria. Boasting an impressive 200 slot machines, this casino even offers a little something extra for the high rollers in your group; the SPIN room, where each pull can cost you up to $5,000. This is one of the only casinos with a high limit room, and probably for good reason.
If you’re not looking to try the slot machines, you could test your hand at some poker, you’ll want to make a stop at the Bellagio. This impressive casino boasts over 40 poker tables, with a variety of poker games and even some extras to make your experience all the more enticing. Food and drink can be served tableside while you’re gambling, and you can even pay to have a massage during your gambling session! To ease the stresses of winning big, no doubt.
Experience The Outdoors
If you get a little overwhelmed by all the hustle and bustle of the strip, you can always get away for a nice hike in the surrounding countryside. Las Vegas may be in the middle of a desert, but there are plenty of natural attractions around that you can enjoy.
- Visit the Grand Canyon
- Take a hike at Goldstrike Canyon
- Take a hike north at Mt. Charleston
- Enjoy some natural hot springs along the Colorado River
You can even book a helicopter to fly you to all these locations and have you back on the strip before sunset.
No bachelor party would be complete without a visit to a gentlemen’s club. There are dozens of them along the strip, but the greatest of them all is the Sapphire. Boasting over 70,00 square feet of floor space and hundreds of performers nightly.
Additionally, the club offers an extensive and well-staffed bar, so you can stay happy and keep the drinks flowing all night long. You can purchase packages that include a limo ride and the cover charge, so you can worry less about getting to and from and focus more on the entertainment.
