Las Vegas Bachelorette Party Ideas
Book the right room: For a bachelorette party in Vegas done right, we always recommend a higher-end hotel room that comes equipped with numerous dining options and a beautiful pool scene. Resorts like Caesars Palace, Cosmopolitan, Bellagio, Wynn, and Venetian come to mind. Note that there are also a number of Las Vegas hotels that offer accommodations with 2 or 3 separate bedrooms, making it possible to get the whole group under one roof.
Helicopter Tour of the Strip at Night: Maverick Helicopters can provide your bachelorette party with stunning aerial views of the Las Vegas Strip as part of their flyover tour packages. Pricing starts at $89 per person and one helicopter can fit up to 6 guests. Note that Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon tours are also available from Las Vegas. View packages and book in advance with Maverick Helicopters here.
See a show featuring scantily clad males: Male revues are among the most popular things to do during a Vegas Bachelorette party. Popular options include the Australian “Thunder Down Under”, “Magic Mike Live” and of course, “Chippendales”. We have compiled a list of male revue shows in Las Vegas and ranked them based on customer reviews from best to worst. Check it out!
Visit the Erotic Heritage Museum: Nothing breaks the ice more effectively than a museum dedicated to the history of sex, and sex across cultures. A “sex-positive” exhibit space, the museum is home to erotic artifacts, films, and art. There is also a current deal on Groupon which will allow you to pay only $32 for 2 tickets (typically $76) or $58 for 4 tickets (typically $152).
Hit up a hidden bar: There are a number of hidden speakeasies in Las Vegas. Our favorite though is Ghost Donkey at Cosmopolitan. Tucked in the back of the “Block 16 Urban Food Court”, the bar’s existence is not advertised. Armed with our guide to find Ghost Donkey at Cosmo, though, you’ll be prepared. Handmade cocktails cost around $17 – We suggest the Pisterolo which is a spicy and sweet mix of tequila, ancho verde, roasted poblano, pineapple.
Bottomless mimosas and bloodies: On the topic of boozing, there are a ton of all-you-can-drink mimosa and bloody mary deals at Las Vegas restaurants, most coinciding with the brunch menu. Recover from your bachelorette decisions the previous night by slowly ramping up your BAC. Here is a complete list of bottomless drink deals in Vegas.
Other bars with a view: If you prefer a low-key vibe when compared to raucous nightclubs, check out bars on the Strip that offer unbeatable views. SkyBar is located on Waldorf Astoria’s 23rd floor and overlooks both the north and south ends of the Strip. Foundation Room is perched on Mandalay Bay’s 63rd floor and provides stunning views of the Strip to the North. The same applies to Skyfall Lounge which can be found on the 64th floor of Delano.
Find a Speakeasy: Hidden bars in Las Vegas are catching on in popularity with options existing both on the Strip and downtown. We suggest hitting Ghost Donkey at Cosmopolitan and the Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den at Resorts World. Here’s a breakdown of speakeasies in Las Vegas that includes instructions for finding them.
Create your own pub crawl: While clubs in Vegas like Omnia or XS are a popular route for a Bachelorette party to go, many prefer to avoid that scene. Try creating your own pub crawl. Whether jumping from bar to bar on Fremont Street, the Linq Promenade, or from casino bar to casino bar on the Strip, you are sure to meet new people and have a blast.
If you’re partying downtown, check out this self-guided bachelorette party pub crawl deal that entitles your group of up to 4, 6, or 8 drinks at 7 different bars at The D and Golden Gate.
Hit a day club pool party: The daytime pool party scene in Vegas is a great way to enjoy time together and blow off some steam with your bridal party. When selecting a party scene, there are a lot of options to include Encore Beach Club, Marquee Dayclub, Daylight Beach Club, and Wet Republic. Among our favorites though is Drai’s on the roof of Cromwell. Its positioning center Strip serves as the perfect spot to experience Vegas.
Pole dancing class: “Stripper101” is marketed specifically to bachelorette parties and will allow your bridal party to learn the art of pole dancing, booty shaking, and how to give a lap dance. Classes take place at the V Theater at Planet Hollywood and all participants have their own pole to perfect their craft. Tickets can be purchased in advance here, or via this current Groupon deal which is offering a 36% discount.
Enjoy the outdoors: Escape the city and hit natural sites just outside of town. Seven Magic Mountains is an artistic display just south of Las Vegas featuring stacked colorful stones. There are also a number of popular day trips to national parks and natural sites like Lake Mead, the Hoover Dam, and Valley of Fire National Park. Renting a pontoon from the Lake Mead Marina and cruising the man-made reservoir could be a perfect las vegas bachelorette itinerary item for some.
Lounge at the pool: If your bachelorette party activities run late into the night, you are sure to need some time the next day to relax, recharge… and recover. Spend some time at the pool. Even if your resort doesn’t have a great pool, there are plenty of others that do and allow non-guests to access for free or for a small fee. Check out our full directory of Vegas pools that offer non-hotel guest access.
Hopefully, you were able to find some unique ideas for things to do in Vegas for a bachelorette party! With options that include shows, clubs, gaming, pool parties, etc., there is certainly something for all tastes.
