Vegas Stripper Party - Bachelor Party Guide

 

If you have been asked to be in charge of the bachelor party planning committee, where the title as a badge of honor and give it the attention it deserves.  Here in Vegas, we have seen our fair share of dope-ass bachelor parties, and other parties that fell a bit short of the mark. To make things easier, we put together a small article to help get your mindset right when planning your next big night out with the boys.

First, what is a bachelor party?  A bachelor party is typically a get-together between a soon-to-be groom and some of his closest mates, celebrating an end of an era and the beginning of a new chapter. How to plan a bachelor party will depend on the personality and comfort level of the groom as well as the people he invites.  Some grooms prefer a more relaxed weekend at the cabin, others prefer adrenaline seeking adventures, while more enjoy a weekend full of night life and drinking.  Our advice is to know your audience (ask what he wants!).  The groom probably knows exactly what he feels comfortable with and should be willing to discuss big picture ideas as to what to expect.  During these conversations, try get a feel for what he expects, without divulging nitty-gritty details of what you are thinking to plan. Surprises are fun for everyone.

In summary, a bachelor party, or stag weekend, is a party celebrated nu predominately men shortly before they enter marriage.  The party is usually planned by the grooms best man or family member.  The purpose of a bachelor party is to celebrate the groom's impending nuptials and say farewell to their single life.

Bachelor Party Do's and Dont's

  • Keep the party as small as possible.  The best man traditionally throws the shindig and invites the groom’s closest friends and relatives. The wildest nights we’ve seen are from small groups, taking advantage of everything Vegas has to offer. These groups include no more than 10 individuals.

 

  • Pick a location that’s conductive to the activities you want.  It may be a bit biased on our end, but we recommend Vegas for your bachelor extravaganza! Whether the groom wants a secluded night out in the middle of nowhere, or maybe an adrenaline junky excursion, or even a night out to forget (maybe all three?) Vegas has it all.  Of course, weekend trips involve travel and related expenses. If you are limited in time and expenses, then the local bar, a hotel room, or the best man’s apartment will do just fine.  No-one can afford to party like that seen in the movies. Be creative and focus on the groom’s experience.

 

  • Do not have your bachelor party the night before the wedding. Trust us, having your bachelor party the night before your wedding is a rookie mistake.  The moments leading up to a couple’s wedding ceremony can be stressful, and everyone needs to be in a sound state of mind to deal with last minute mishaps and issues to make the day as magical as possible for the newlyweds.  Bachelor parties are typically scheduled up to a month before the wedding ceremony, and guests that need to travel long distances should be notified at least three weeks prior to the event to avoid scheduling conflicts.

 

  • Make sure the best man understands his (or her, no judgement here) responsibilities.  The best man is typically responsible for making sure the bachelor party avoids any unnecessary mishaps.  Other responsibilities bestowed on the groom’s best man include:
      • Make sure no one drives home drunk.
      • No video evidence is taken of the trip.
      • Organize and calculate the total cost of the trip.
      • Figure out how many people to invite, who to invite, and how to split up the totals.
      • Be creative and have fun with activity ideas! For some other fun ideas, feel free to give VSP a call. ?
      • Let loose and make sure the groom has a night to remember.
      • Make sure the party keeps an upbeat vibe. Help keep your party on the right side of fun.

Choosing Las Vegas for your Bachelor Party

Las Vegas is one giant adult playground with some of the best dining, scenery and entertainment options in the entire world, making it one of the best places in the States for a bachelor party.  Since the options are so broad, its hard to narrow down exactly what to make time for during your trip to Sin City.

Often, we see parties come to town and go too fast and too hard right out of the gate, making the second part of their trip less enjoyable than the first. Pace yourself, plan ahead, and think smart. For example, if you have plan on hitting one of Vegas’s infamous pool parties in the afternoon, it may not be a good idea to plan a night out drinking at Vegas’ world-renowned clubs that evening.  By following these simple guidelines and the Pro-Tips outlined below, we promise you your Vegas Bachelor Party experience will be LEGENDARY.

Pro-Tip #1: Pack sunscreen, stay hydrated, and set some time ahead to recharge and rest. Its hot here. We are in the middle of the desert.

Pro-Tip #2: Stock up on supplies when you come in. What should your supply list intel? We have a few ideas to get those brain juices flowing…

      • Recreational Marijuana
      • Water or Pedialyte
      • Portable Charger
      • Swimsuit
      • Ibuprofen
      • Cigars
      • Condoms
      • Alka Seltzer
      • Cheap digital camera
      • Booze
      • Cash
      • Drinking Games

Note: Getting these different items are 10x more expensive on the strip than off. Las Vegas has a ton of surrounding areas that are safe to travel to and are within 10/15 minutes of the strip.  These towns include: Summerlin, Henderson, Centennial Hills, The Lakes, Rancho Charleston, and Whitney Ranch.  Try to avoid Northern Vegas and North-West Vegas as a general rule of thumb.  Rent a car, or get an uber to drive you to a surrounding area to  shop.  Better yet, bring everything you need with you! Planning ahead is key.

Pro-Tip #3: Rent out a dope car. Rent out a supercar and drive it on one of Las Vegas’ racetracks, or take it for a spin and visit the Hoover Dam or drive through the scenic trail at Red Rock Canyon (gorgeous scenery just twenty minutes from the strip!). Cops are strict in Vegas and do look for opportunities to ticket those driving these ridiculous cars, so be smart and keep an eye out!

Pro-Tip #4: See some shows during your stay in Vegas! We have some of the best entertainers in the world performing every night.  Absinthe is a must see if you’re looking for some recommendations!

Pro-Tip #5: Here in Vegas, we rep Golden Knights attire and we love the Las Vegas Raiders. Book a seat at the Raider’s “Death Star” stadium or see a hockey game, court side with full access to the bar within Vegas’s T-Mobile stadium.

Pro-Tip #6: For a more personal experience. Rent out private strippers to come to your hotel room.  Strip clubs are fun, but they are strip clubs.  Enjoy some privacy and quality time with the boys in your own hotel suite! To help schedule a party, VSP is our recommendation. Check out VSP package page for more info! Check out more info as to why private stripper parties are the new craze!

Pro-Tip #7: Get to the Club. Even if you’re not a “club person,” Vegas is the perfect place to experience one if you’re feeling adventurous. Hakkasan Nightclub is the best in town and features world-class DJs and acts like Tiesto, Zedd, Lil John, and Crankdat. They recently installed an insane LED ceiling grid that moves in mind-bending ways, and the light show itself is one of the most mesmerizing things you’ll witness on your trip. If you’re really into the EDM scene, you’ll probably be fine with general admission. But we think Hakkasan is a much better experience when enjoyed at a reserved table so you can really get the VIP treatment.
