Planning on a bachelor party in Las Vegas? Don’t book anything until you’ve read this guide.
Officially the marriage capital of the world, Las Vegas is also hugely popular as a location of bachelor parties. Vegas not only offers some of the best legal vices in the United States including gambling and all-night liquor licenses but is also well positioned to take advantage of Nevada’s brothels. The original Sin City is also home to plenty of adult entertainment venues including strip clubs, lap dancing bars and
Known as the adult Disneyland, Las Vegas is the ultimate bachelor party destination, and, in this feature, we take a look at some of the best ways to max out your last weekend of freedom.
- Strip Clubs
- Pool Parties
Las Vegas has some of the best strip clubs, not only in the United States but also, in the world. The city has about thirty strip clubs ranging from those that serve liquor and the girls go topless to fully nude dancing bars. The law forbids both with the only exemption being if a strip club was licensed before 1995 and so there is still one strip club in Las Vegas where you can see fully nude dancers and enjoy a full bar.
We’ve got full reviews of some of the best Las Vegas strip clubs across our site but our pick of the bunch for the best three strip clubs for bachelor parties are as follows:
Crazy Horse III
3525 W Russell Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89118
Crazy Horse has one of the strongest reputations in Las Vegas for wild nights of striptease, excellent atmosphere and stunning dancers. Unlike some of the clubs in Vegas that have a more refined and opulent luxury to them, Crazy Horse has a real mixed appeal. As well as a main stage and strip hall, there are multiple zones to enjoy the dancers as well as five VIP bars and a nightclub.
Of course, weekends are really busy but hit the Horse for a big sporting event and the place can get really rammed.
Bachelor parties are a staple on Saturday and Sunday nights but the place is big enough to accommodate several groups, even larger ones.

1848 N Las Vegas Blvd, North Las Vegas, NV 89030
Originally opening in 1969, Palomino is not just the oldest licensed strip club in Las Vegas but due to the quirks of the licensing laws, it is the only club that can also serve hard liquor with nude dancing; so, full bar, full nude.
Despite its age, the club is modern and features a ground floor strip hall with a double pole stage and an upstairs ultra-lounge. Parties can take advantage of the VIP areas or just enjoy some of the clubs fantasy rooms.
Palomino rightly has a reputation for providing some of Las Vegas’s hottest and wildest bachelor parties. There are plenty of package deals for large groups with a popular option being the Palomino High Roller. For a price of $2000, there is an unlimited number of guests able to take advantage of their choice of seating, seven bottles, unlimited mixers, 5 pitchers of beer and VIP transport and admission.
6007 Dean Martin Dr, Las Vegas, NV 89118
Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club in Las Vegas is one of the most famous venues and regularly makes the headlines with celebrity guests, big acts and special events. It is a playground for bachelor parties and has a solid reputation for providing a great experience for large groups; after all, that is their mainstay of clientele.
The club features 15 private ‘Honey Suites’, 6 full bars and a great selection of champagne and wine. There is plenty of VIP seating which is raised away from the main area. Covering multiple floors, Hustler covers an impressive 25,000 sq. ft of space. There is also an adult boutique on site as well as full food service.
Party packages include VIP entry and seating as well as limousine pick

You could no sooner go to Las Vegas and not visit a casino than go to a frat party and not drink beer. The city is full of casinos and every bar, club and restaurant cashes in on the fact that gambling is the main attraction. You can even gamble whilst in the swimming pool with swim up blackjack at the Hard Rock and Caesars Palace.
There aren’t many places in Las Vegas where you can’t gamble and most of the casinos are pretty good. However with more than 60 to choose from, we’ve chosen our three favorite casinos that are good for bachelor parties, especially if you want a uniquely Las Vegas experience.
3570 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Caesars is one of the most iconic entertainment venues in the world and has the prestige of being a AAA four diamond rated hotel. It is a luxury resort complex and is known for being a high rollers casino. It might not be the first choice for bachelor parties on a budget but if you are heading to Las Vegas for a memorable night of gambling then this is certainly a one-off experience.
The venue is based on a Roman style and oozes wealth making it regularly frequented by the rich and the famous and is often the chosen site for major sporting and live entertainment events. The casino itself incorporates a 4500 sq. ft. poker room, 1300+ slot machines and a huge variety of card and tables games. All in all, the casino covers a mammoth space of around 130,000 sq. ft.
The casino is now more than fifty years old but remains a Mecca for visitors to the city looking to experience the Las Vegas of their dreams.
New York New York
3790 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
One of those iconic casinos that many people forget about, New York New York is based around the theme of the ‘Big Apple’ of the 1930s. It’s quite a popular tourist resort and is home to a roller coaster that runs through the interior of the building. As well as live entertainment in the casino in the ‘party pit’ there is plenty of good table games to enjoy as well as a large 84,000 sq. ft. floor full of slots, card games and video poker machines. It’s got a great feel to it and, as far as themed casinos go, is pretty grown up.
115 E Tropicana Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89109
At the other end of the spectrum to Caesars Palace, we have Hooters. The restaurant chain that has made its name with pretty young waitresses in revealing outfits opened its casino hotel in 2006 and is the only venue in the chain that offers accommodation.
It’s a large enough casino but small by comparison to the big boys on the Strip and covers around 30,000 sq. ft of space. Of course, the major appeal is the hooters girls that serve drinks, including cocktails. The floor itself is well set for gaming and includes 370+ slot and video poker machines, 22 table games as well as a sports book. They have the best minimum bets for blackjack in Vegas with stakes as low as $1.
It’s a novelty casino that may wear thin after a while but is a good place to relive some of your youth and reminisce about your favorite Hooters girl before heading to a club.
Being in Las Vegas at night is like being a kid in a candy store. The bright lights and neon signs can tempt you into a Wendy’s if you let them but there are some venues which are better than others; particularly when it comes to nightclubs.
We’ve chosen three of the best clubs to head to after dark to get the ultimate night out for your bachelor party.
Omnia @ Caesars Palace
3570 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
With a Miami Beach vibe, Omnia is one of the hottest night clubs in Vegas and guarantees guests a memorable experience. If you like your music loud and you want to feel the bass through to your very bones then this place will rock your boat. It’s a popular club and can get very crowded, especially if they have a big name DJ in the house. For large parties, you can book VIP seating which is well worth doing so you have some respite from the dance floor.
The venue has a rooftop garden from which you can enjoy some stunning views across Las Vegas Boulevard.
XS Night Club @ Encore Wynn
3131 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
With a mix of headline DJs, including residents like David Guetta, and live acts the XS Nightclub can really attract big crowds. It’s a popular place partly for its poolside setting and night swims but also because of the open feel and atmosphere inside.
Yet again, it does get very crowded for some of the big attractions and you will want to make arrangements with a big party for VIP seating. Simply put, if you leave the main hall during an event to head to the pool then the chances are you won’t find room again when you try to head back in.
Drai’s @ The Cromwell
3595 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Drai’s is an indoor and outdoor super club situated on the roof of the Cromwell. By day, it is a beach club but by night it becomes a hip hop party zone. It’s ideal for those who want to escape the tech-heavy/EDM club scene.
The views across Vegas are stunning and the 65,000 sq. ft of space means it doesn’t seem to get quite as crowded as some other clubs. Having said that there can be some big-name acts playing and that can attract even bigger crowds. Previous acts include The Weekend, Chris Brown and Big Sean.
Another of Las Vegas’s defining attractions is the pool party season which tend to start early March and run to early October. There’s plenty of pool complexes in Vegas with most of the major resorts having large areas available for guest use or to host big events and parties. Not all of these are created equal so its important to pick a hotel where you can get away from the families (see Hotels, below) or choose a pool party where non-residents can join in.
There are also toptional pools that fully support the European style of sunbathing where bikini tops are optional. You can find a full guide to the best topless pool parties in Las Vegas, here.
Our pick of the best pool parties in Vegas are:
Encore Beach Club @ Encore/Wynn
3131 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Encore is one of the first resorts to open their pool seasons and it is also one of the biggest venues around. They have a reputation for their live entertainment with some big name DJs accompanying performers at the stripper poles and a central stage.
It was named Las Vegas Day Club of the Year 2018 and features 26 cabanas, and eight bungalows for large groups to enjoy some private seating.
The beach club seamlessly transforms itself into a moonlit nightclub and is the setting for many party scenes in Las Vegas.
There is a European Pool at the Encore where hotel guests can go topless. Less of a party space but easy on the eyes with a hangover post night out….if you are a resident.
Wet Republic @ MGM Grand
3799 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Situated at the MGM Grand, this day club covers more than 54,000 sq. ft. of space offering several private saltwater plunge pools as well as an enormous ‘ultra-pool’. Live entertainment at the weekend is usually chosen from some of the big circuit or international DJs with line ups including Calvin Harris, Afrojack and Tiesto.
Despite its size, it can get very crowded and you can expect long lines for the bar unless you book a VIP experience.
Rehab Beach Club @ Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
4455 Paradise Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89169
The most infamous pool party in Vegas can be found at the Rehab Beach Club where the atmosphere gets fully and wholly wild. The parties run all weekend, but Sunday is usually the best place to hit the club. It’s a massive oasis with 11 pool areas and some cracking beats laid down to keep a party atmosphere going.
The Rehab Beach Club tends to attract a much younger crowd than other pool parties which could account for some of the antics that the place is renowned for. Expect plenty of sun, beautiful women and good tunes but you will need a lot of energy to keep up.
There are plenty of great hotels to stay at in Las Vegas and just because you aren’t a resident doesn’t mean to say you can’t enjoy the casinos, pool parties, shows and entertainment. However, basing your bachelor party at one of these hotels will guarantee you the best location for a great atmosphere plus if you want to go all out then you can book some amazing suites for you and the guys to enjoy.
These are our top three best bachelor party hotels to base yourselves in.
3708 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
The Cosmopolitan is a modern complex that has been popular with bachelor parties over the last few years not only for its excellent facilities but also for the packages you can get staying here.
As well as three outdoor pools which have great pool parties and concerts there is also the legendary nightclub, Marquee plus a spa and several great restaurants. All the rooms have balconies, so you can get ready for your night out with a few drinks in the open air.
There are some big suites you can book including those with wraparound terraces for a swankier touch to the weekend.
Two other great choice hotels that can also help you coordinate a party of just serve as a great base for your stay in Vegas are:
- Palms Casino Resort, 4321 W Flamingo Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89103
- W Las Vegas, 2535 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Prostitution is illegal in Clark County which means you can’t find any brothels in Las Vegas itself, but Nevada has around 21 licensed brothels, some of which are based around Reno but there are a couple that are only an hour’s drive away in Pahrump.
10551 Homestead Rd, Pahrump, NV 89061
Positioning itself as more than just a brothel but a resort, Sheri’s Ranch is an upscale establishment with a good standard of décor. They are a state licensed bordello with fully registered services and staff providing a good selection of services including Nuru massage. For members of the party who don’t want to go the whole hog, a rub and tug might just be a good compromise.
More adventurous types can choose from the sex menu which includes full intercourse to bondage sessions, adult toy shows and foot fetish parties.
Not that you will make the trip from Vegas for the swimming pool, spa and sports bar but it might keep your party entertained whilst everyone gets a full experience.
10511 Homestead Rd, Pahrump, NV 89061
The historic Chicken Ranch, where the ‘west is still wild’ is a popular licensed brothel serving visitors to Las Vegas.
Facilities include themed party rooms, a private spa and strip club or you can just stop by during the day for a memorable tour of a working brothel….some rooms are off limits.
There is also a public bar and strip club on site so you can make the most of your visit out to the Ranch, however long the main attraction lasts for.
The Chicken Ranch runs a complementary pick up and drop off service with their party limo as well as VIP group packages.
Of course, not every aspect of Las Vegas’s entertainment scene is adult in nature and there are some other ways to enjoy a wild time that maybe won’t get the groom in quite as much trouble as some other options on this list. Experience days are popular across the U.S. and Las Vegas has some little gems that offer a new way to remember Las Vegas.
