If you’re about to tie the knot and are looking for somewhere to enjoy your final bash as a free and single man, with just about every kind of entertainment imaginable on offer, few places are better suited for your party than Vegas.
In fact, there’s so much to do that the biggest problem is likely to be deciding which options to go for – so to help, in this post we give you our top 17 picks for things to do on bachelor parties in Vegas.
Best Las Vegas Bachelor Party Ideas
1. Book a Suite
To set the tone for how you want things to go, the first thing to do when you arrive in Vegas is to check into your own luxury suite.
There’s almost no limit to how much you can spend on this, but if you’re willing to lay down several thousand bucks per night just for your room, you can expect amenities like a personal bar, a dining area, dedicated media and entertainment rooms and more.
For example, for top-end luxury, you can opt for one of the opulent Chelsea Suites at the Cosmopolitan – or for a bit less, go for a SKYLOFT at MGM grand, which even includes a private butler to serve drinks and help get the party started.
Alternatively, penthouses at LINQ are more affordable – relatively speaking – but still give you and your buddies somewhere classy and stylish to base yourselves before you head out to enjoy the rest of what Vegas has to offer.
2. Go on A Bar Crawl
One of the traditional and practically obligatory activities for just about all bachelor parties is to head out on a bar crawl.
Vegas is home to a huge range of bars to match all tastes, so you’re sure to be able to find more than enough watering holes to sink as many beers as you can handle.
A good tip is to leave the Strip and head to Downtown where you’ll find a large number of interesting and sometimes quirky bars – there are microbreweries serving high-quality craft beer, places with live music or DJs and just about anything else you could ask for.
3. Go Clubbing
For those who want to spend a night on the tiles, you’ll be spoiled for choice in Vegas since Sin City boasts several veritable superclubs where you can dance to the sounds of top artists and world-renowned DJs till the early hours.
For example, Hakkasan, Omnia, Jewel, Drai’s, Tao or XS are all venues worthy of hosting your last night as a single man, and you can expect to see the likes of Steve Aoki, Tiesto, Martin Garrix, Lil Wayne or Wiz Khalifa performing, depending on the club and night.
If you really want to push the boat out and make it a night to remember, you can also book a private table with VIP bottle service, living it up one last time before you tie the knot.
Here’s a tip though – don’t plan to hit an expensive, exclusive club on the same night as you do your bar crawl – because if you’re too smashed, you probably won’t remember much, and you might not even be allowed in.
4. Go to A Pool Party
Something else Vegas is rightly famous for is its wild pool parties, and if you’re in town to say goodbye to single life, it’s something you have to experience.
Among the best options are Encore Beach Club at Encore, Marquee Dayclub at The Cosmopolitan, Daylight Beach Club at Mandalay Bay and Tao Beach at The Venetian.
Most offer cabanas or daybeds and bottle service for the full VIP treatment, allowing you to party throughout the day in style.
5. Play Poker
Of course, more than anything, Vegas has always been about gambling, so if you’re there for your bachelor party, you shouldn’t leave without trying your luck in the casinos.
Poker players will find no shortage of places offering tables with stakes to suit any budget.
If you think you can bluff with the best of them and possess nerves of steel, there are some frighteningly high-stakes options in town – but if that sounds too rich for you, there are also plenty tables where you don’t stand to lose your life savings on a single hand.
And for those who don’t want to leave Vegas without trying their luck but who don’t know how to play poker, there are also endless slots, roulette tables and more where you can join in the fun without risking more cash than you can afford.
6. Eat at A Buffet
For many, an essential part of the Vegas experience is to eat at one of the many lavish buffets, and all of the most famous ones are back up and running after the hiatus enforced by the covid pandemic.
For an unsurpassed selection of delectable food items from around the world, head to the Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace, an opulent buffet that offers hundreds of different dishes for you to sample every day.
Alternatively, make your way over to Wicked Spoon at The Cosmopolitan for classier and more stylishly presented delights.
And of course, since it’s your bachelor’s do, you’ll probably also want a drink or two with your meal – so make sure you take advantage of the all-inclusive drinks deals most buffets offer to make it a suitably boozy lunch or dinner for your group.
7. Take in An Adult (or Non-Adult) Show
With it being a bachelor’s party, there’s a good chance you’ll be interested in a little titillation while you’re in town, and one option is to take in one of the spectacular Vegas adult shows.
For example, the provocative Absinthe in the Spiegeltent at Caesars Palace offers an intimate experience of impressive acrobatics, bawdy jokes and glamorous costumes.
Alternatively, the more explicitly sexy – but still just about acceptable as far as your conscience is concerned – the burlesque Fantasy show at Luxor boasts beautiful scantily clad women performing seductive acrobatic feats on stage, backed by a suitably exciting soundtrack.
However, while these shows are relatively innocent since they’re in no way “interactive”, we realize that some people might not be interested in such things just before their wedding day.
In that case, there are plenty of other shows in Vegas that aren’t even slightly naughty that you can check out instead.
8. Go to A Strip Club
On the other hand, if you’re about to get hitched, you may be of the opinion that you might as well make the most of your last days as a bachelor – and as they say, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas – in which case, there are plenty of strip shows to tempt you.
While the bare-chested women and the lap dances might not be something you’ll want to tell your fiancée about when you get home, a trip to an upmarket gentleman’s club is seen as a must by many grooms-to-be.
There are plenty of venues to consider, and the sprawling Sapphire is likely to be near the top of many people’s list. Another popular option is Crazy Horse III while Palomino is the only place in Vegas offering both full nudity and alcohol.
9. Drive a Supercar
Boys love their toys, so it doesn’t come much better than spending the afternoon test-driving some of the supercars of your dreams, one of the most popular bachelor party activities in Vegas.
Exotics Racing offers various supercar, karting or off-road packages and features vehicles such as Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Maseratis, Porsches, Audis and more for you to try.
Another option is the Dream Racing Driving Experience, which offers a similar range of supercars and allows you to test them out on the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, a track that plays host to several NASCAR races each year.
10. Spend the Day Riding an Atv in The Desert
If you’re more into off-road driving and want to see a bit of the Las Vegas desert, take your party out on an ATV adventure.
You’ll get to experience the sand dunes and mountain scenery up close and personal as you zip across the rugged landscape on your own all-terrain vehicle.
While almost every visitor to Vegas samples the casinos, bars, clubs and restaurants, far fewer take the time to experience the surrounding desert – but the stark scenery is well worth making the effort to see, and an ATV tour is possibly the best way to do it.
11. Take a Flight in A Helicopter
If you’ve never been in a helicopter, your bachelor party in Vegas is your chance to experience it for yourself, and several options are available.
One of the most popular choices involves a flight over the Las Vegas Strip by night, giving you the best possible view of Sin City in all its neon glory.
Alternatively, you can take a flight out to the Grand Canyon for unsurpassed aerial views of one of the world’s most breathtaking natural formations, something that you’re not likely to forget in a hurry.
Several companies offer helicopter flights over Vegas and the surrounding area, with other options, packages and itineraries also available.
12. Get Your Adrenaline Fix at The Strat
For dedicated adrenaline junkies, a trip to The STRAT to experience the Thrill Rides is an essential stop on your bachelor party tour of Vegas.
Choose Insanity if you want to know what it feels like to spin at three Gs while dangling hundreds of feet up in the air – or go for the X-Scream ride to experience a terrifying rollercoaster 886 feet from the ground.
On the other hand, for the ultimate thrill, opt for the Big Shot, a ride that shoots you 160 feet up into the air at 45 miles per hour, taking just seconds to reach the top – and then after a moment’s pause, it drops you all the way back down again.
Don’t worry, compared to married life, this will be a breeze!
13. See a Sports Game
An all-time classic – and wholesome – boys’ activity is to take in a sports game, and in Vegas, you can do so by cheering on the Vegas Golden Knights at the T-Mobile arena if hockey is your thing or the Las Vegas Raiders if you’re more of a football fan.
Even if these teams aren’t playing while you’re in town, there are still plenty of sports bars where you can catch a big match with your friends. And if you feel like placing a little bet on the outcome, there’s no shortage of sportsbooks in town either.
14. Go Hiking
For those who are less interested in partying 24/7 – or perhaps those who just want a break from all the craziness of Vegas to spend a little time close to nature – going for a day’s hiking in the surrounding area is a great alternative.
There are some excellent hiking opportunities in the vicinity of Las Vegas too. For example, the Red Rock Canyon hike is only 30 minutes out of town, making it easy to reach.
Other top picks include the Gold Strike Canyon, a five-mile circular trek near Lake Mead or the Fire Wave Trail, one of the most popular routes in the Valley of Fire.
15. Relax in A Spa
Another option if you and your party want to escape from the chaos of Sin City for some relaxation and downtime is to book some time in a spa.
All the major resorts offer spa facilities and treatments, so the best option is probably to book into the spa at the resort where you’re staying. However, some of the best in town include the Qua spa at Caesars Palace and the spas at Encore, The Venetian and Bellagio.
16. Try Your Hand at Ax Throwing
For an hour or two of competitive fun with your buddies, make your way over to Axe Moneys to summon your inner lumberjack and show off your skills at ax throwing.
The experience starts with a quick lesson on what you’re supposed to do followed by a bit of practice – and then you’ll be unleashed in the cages to show what you’ve got.
Alternatively, book some time in the Rage Room to let off some steam by smashing stuff with the various tools and weapons provided – or perhaps save this one for after you’re married…
17. Go Paintballing
Another of the classic bachelor party activities is paintballing, and if you’ve never tried it before, your boys’ trip to Vegas is the perfect opportunity.
There are a couple of good companies offering paintballing in Vegas. For example, Combat Zone Paintball has both medium impact and standard impact options, allowing you to battle your friends for battlefield supremacy.
Alternatively, Las Vegas Premier Paintball is another reputable outfit that can cater for groups, and they even have dedicated packages for bachelor parties to ensure the groom-to-be has a blast – or at least gets properly blasted!
So Much to Do from The Classic to The Quirky
Whether you’re looking to enjoy some of the classic bachelor party activities such as paintball or bar crawls or are more interested in quirky activities such as ax throwing – and not forgetting the clubs, casinos and shows – there’s plenty to keep you busy in Vegas.
In fact, there’s so much on offer that you’ll probably have trouble packing it all into a single short trip – but at least with our guide, you’ll know what’s available when you start planning.
