So you’ve been tasked with plan­ning your friend’s bach­e­lor week­end in Vegas. Where do you stay? Where do you drink? What do you do when you’re not drink­ing? These are the essen­tial ques­tions and we’re here with the essen­tial answers with this guide to a Las Vegas bach­e­lor week­end.

WHERE TO STAY

First things first, decide which end of the Vegas Strip you want to stay in. Con­sid­er where you’ll be spend­ing most of your days and nights when choos­ing. The South Strip has recent­ly upgrad­ed its hotel options with the addi­tion of the Delano, adja­cent the Man­dalay Bay, but with oth­er hotels that include the MGM Grand Hotel & Casi­no. How­ev­er, the high­est con­cen­tra­tion of hotels (and many of the top hotels, restau­rants, and things to do) can be found mid-Strip, such as the Bel­la­gio, Venet­ian, Caesar’s Palace, and the City­Cen­ter hotels, which includes the Aria and Cos­mopoli­tan.

WHERE TO EAT

If you want it, you can find it on the Las Vegas Strip. If you want good sushi, there’s Nobu at Caesar’s Palace or Blue Rib­bon at the Cos­mopoli­tan. For Mex­i­can, there’s Javier’s at Aria or Diablo’s Can­ti­na at the Monte Car­lo. For Ital­ian, there’s Scar­pet­ta at the Cos­mopoli­tan or FiAMMA at the MGM Grand. I do rec­om­mend mak­ing reser­va­tions for at least one nice din­ner, such as one of the hottest new restau­rants on the Strip, Gia­da, or a steak restau­rant like CUT at The Palaz­zo or The Cap­i­tal Grille. When the munchies hit, or on the way back to your hotel from the bars, grab a burg­er at Shake Shack or piz­za from Secret Piz­za at the Cos­mopoli­tan.

WHERE TO DAYCLUB

It’s not just any city, after all, that you can day par­ty like you can in Vegas. The day par­ties, or rather, “day­clubs,” are one of the many rea­sons that Vegas stands out as a bach­e­lor week­end des­ti­na­tion. Encore Beach Club, locat­ed at the Wynn, is a three-tiered pool com­plex that often fea­tures world-renowned dee­jays. Bare Pool Lounge at the Mirage is lined with cabanas and fea­tures a see-through, infin­i­ty-edged pool and Liq­uid Pool & Lounge at Aria fea­tures cabanas with their own flat-screen TVs and gam­ing con­soles. If noth­ing else, don’t leave with­out vis­it­ing Man­dalay Bay’s Moorea Beach Club, which includes a “top­tion­al beach”.

WHERE TO DRINK

While you’ll be get­ting hand­ed drinks just about any­where and every­where on the Vegas Strip, there are some stand­outs if you want more than just a well drink. 1923 Bour­bon Bar is a mod­ern-day speakeasy and bur­lesque bar by mod­el and show­girl Hol­ly Madi­son, which is fit­ting for a bach­e­lor week­end. If for no oth­er rea­son than just a drink, go to Man­dalay Bay at sun­set to the Foun­da­tion Room, perched atop the hotel tow­er and with the best bar view in the city. Head to The Chan­de­lier at the Cos­mopoli­tan for some of the best cock­tails in the city and bal­ance that with a short cab ride to Dou­ble Down Saloon, one of Vegas’ divi­est bars (make sure to order the “Ass Juice”).

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT DRINKING

What’s great about Las Vegas is that when you need a break from the Strip, there are a ton of activ­i­ties that you can only do in Vegas, which dou­ble as a great last adren­a­line-pump­ing hoorah with the groom. This includes being able to fly an actu­al plane with Sky Com­bat Ace, where guests are hand­ed over the con­trols of an aer­o­bat­ic plane to per­form maneu­vers like loops and bar­rel rolls. Oth­er great bach­e­lor week­end activ­i­ties include Dig This, where guests get to dri­ve heavy machin­ery in an “adult sand­box” and numer­ous out­fit­ters that allow you to dri­ve exot­ic cars. For a more soft adven­ture, there’s near­by Red Rock Canyon, home to some of the best hik­ing and rock climb­ing in South­ern Neva­da.

WHERE TO GO OUT

No mat­ter what your bar or night­club per­son­al­i­ty, there’s one for you in Vegas. For the sta­ple night­club with pump­ing elec­tron­ic music and lots of danc­ing, you have your pick of clubs like Hakkasan, Mar­quee, XS and Tao. For the same type of vibe but a small­er venue and the best view of the Bel­la­gio Foun­tains, then go to Hyde. If a more local, off­beat vibe is what you’re after, think about Down­town Las Vegas for places like Gold Spike, which has adult-sized ver­sions of your favorite child­hood games (plus corn­hole and beer pong), Com­mon­wealth for craft cock­tails (and a secret speakeasy, The Laun­dry Room) and Atom­ic Liquor Store and Bar for a great dive bar.

Of course, we’d be remiss not to men­tion strip clubs. They run the gamut in Vegas from clas­sic estab­lish­ments like Cheetah’s and Crazy Horse III to the largest strip club in the world, Sap­phire, to Spearmint Rhi­no, which is con­sid­ered to have some of more high­er qual­i­ty “enter­tain­ers.” Whether day-club­bing, night­club­bing, or strip-club­bing, make sure you bring plen­ty of cash, you’re going to need it, between the cov­er, drinks, and every­thing in between.
