Top 10 Best Bachelorette (Hen) Party Activities In Miami / South Beach

Headed to Miami / South Beach for a hen (bachelorette) party soon? In addition to dayclubs and nightclubs, you’ll need to plan other afternoon and early-evening group activities for the bachelorette and her group that are fun and memorable, while still giving you the most value for your money spent.

The Miami that most out-of-town visitors know is the South Beach one: steamy summer temps, white and neon tones, sheer opulence, fast money, stylish excess, and glitzy sensory overload.  Of course, the locals and insiders are happy to deliver upon those stereotypes, because that’s the version that tourists pay handsomely to witness and be a part of. And South Floridians surely play that fiddle in harmonious tune, because more tourists to Miami in general and SoBe specifically mean more revenues generated and jobs created for the state’s sun-kissed residents!

Why is planning a bachelorette party so hard?

Your bachelorette has just chosen the Magic City as the destination city and assembled her final list; now, you as the Maid of Honor are on the hook to make magic happen. So you let out a big sigh, open up your laptop and hop on the internets, and get to work on mapping out this epic weekend in Miami.  You’re about halfway through planning the shindig, and you’ve already locked down a great room rate at one of Miami’s top hotels. As you start your search on activities, you know you’re not totally a lost kitten – you’ve partied in Miami a few times in the past with and without the bride-to-be, and you’ve got numerous friends in high and low places who are willing to offer sound and not-so-sound recommendations – but of course you wouldn’t mind having a professional to guide you.   You know, someone totally plugged who can take all those half-formed suggestions floating around and give you accurate, actionable answers?

Look, we know you’re here for a good time, not a long time… so you’ll need some expert guidance to help narrow down your choices to round out your ideal hen-do agenda. Here, in order of our highly experienced customer service staff’s preferences, is our Discotech Top 10 list of best and most entertaining bachelorette party activities that your classy group of ladies would do well to line up during your few days in the Magic City:

1) Dance Your Face (and Heels) Off – Nightclubs

  • Venue (Location): Varies by price and music type (click here for recommendations)
  • Cost Per Person: Free (certain guest lists); $10-100 (discounted guest lists & presale tickets); $200 and up (VIP tables)
  • Time Length of Activity: 4-5 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 10:00PM-12:00AM (avoid long lines and waits)

Seems predictable, but sorry not sorry ladies: you know you LOVE to dance, so this activity must make the Top 10 of any bachelorette party list in any city. Whether your Saturday or Sunday mornings/afternoons figure to be calm ones or crazy ones, it MUST necessarily be followed by (or preceded by) an epic high-energy night filled with music and mirth. A word of caution though: when it comes to nightlife in Miami, the “good guys / gals” don’t always win: villains and shady characters run amok in the South Beach streets, and they’ve long made large fortunes and long-term careers taking advantage of visitors through cryptic double-speak and sleight of hand, and false expectations.

Enter Discotech – your ultimate solution for lining up the bachelorette party – or “hen do” as they say if you’re from the U.K./Europe – dayclub and nightclub festivities. We’re deep into this Miami nightlife game, and we know how to plan things to a “T” ladies.  We’ve helped THOUSANDS of satisfied clients with their bachelorette party needs in Miami, Vegas, Los Angeles, and other cities; we’ve been featured on BBC Travel and we are also highly reviewed on Yelp! and in both the App Store and Google Play.  

2) Life’s a Beach – Miami Beaches

Lummus Park Beach and Ocean Ave, Miami, Florida
  • Venue (Location): Varies by location / atmosphere
  • Cost Per Person: Free (parking fees for pay lots)
  • Time To Set Aside: 3-4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 9:00AM-12:00AM or 3:00PM-6:00PM (avoid the sun’s strongest midday rays so you don’t turn into a lobster)

Let’s face it: the bachelorette chose Miami because she wanted the beaches with her betches. The best thing about the beaches in South Florida is that ALL of them are open to the public, and they’re all free. Whether your hen party is searching for an isolated destination or wants to spend a day at a busy “see and be seen” strip of sand and surf, Miami caters to all tastes and offers a variety of beaches to choose from. Some beaches in Miami are dotted with palm trees to provide a shady respite from the heat, while others are perfect for quickly getting that pre-wedding golden suntan that will make those wedding pics pop off. Some have serene and glassy waters that call for a good book; others boast rolling, crashing waves that scream out for watersports action photos. The one thing that all South Florida beaches have in common is their stunning and well-groomed natural beauty, and many area beaches likewise offer plenty of water activities and proximity to restaurants, bars, and entertainment venues to appease visiting tourists. Here our our Top beaches around South Florida:

  1. Lummus Park Beach – People-watching, volleyball, sunbathing
  2. South Beach – Trendy, close to restaurants / nightclubs, younger “party” tourist crowd
  3. Haulover Beach – LGBTQ-friendly, surfing, nude sunbathing
  4. South Pointe Park Pier – Fishing, kid-friendly, local families beach
  5. 12th Street Beach – LGBTQ-friendly, tourist crowd, close to restaurants / nightclubs
  6. Sunny Isles Beach – Snorkeling, diving, kid-friendly
  7. 21st–45th Street Beach – Sunbathing, strolling, smaller crowds
  8. Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park – Windsurfing, kayaking, quiet atmosphere
  9. Fort Lauderdale Beach – Skating, jogging, younger (under 21) crowds
  10. Oleta River State Recreational Area – Swimming, canoeing, bicycling, nature views

3) Make a Splash – Dayclubs / Pool Parties

Hyde Beach poolside, Miami, Florida
  • Venue (Location): Varies by price and music type (click here for recommendations)
  • Cost Per Person: Free (certain guest lists); $5-100 (discounted guest lists & presale tickets); $200 and up (VIP loungers, daybeds, & cabanas)
  • Time Length of Activity: 4-5 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 11:30AM-1:30PM (avoid long lines and waits)

Pool parties are a legendary daytime activity that epitomizes the sumptuously debaucherous surfside feel of Miami Beach, and the ones here are arguably second-best only to those of Las Vegas. At least one of these day parties on your bachelorette weekend agenda is a must; even for girls who don’t like nightclubs, the eye candy, sunshine, cool plunges to beat the heat (and did we mention eye candy?) make it worth it. For any bachelor party larger than four 4-5 ladies, it’s a no-brainer to book a cabana or daybed with bottle service in order to maximize the fun; for a smaller hen-do or one that wants variety, we suggest purchasing presale tickets or signing up for guest lists. Find one of the hottest events going on that weekend using our Discotech app, and go see one of your favorite DJs or performing artists. For a Saturday day party, Hyde Beach and Nikki Beach are the best party scenes especially if money ain’t a thang: between the killer music lineups, badass surroundings, and (did we mention) eye candy, these two venues are head-and-shoulders above the rest if your bride-to-be is into nothing but the best.

4) Relax, Don’t Do It – Day Spa / Massage / Salon

  • Venue (Location): Varies by price and services offered
  • Cost Per Person: $50 and up
  • Time To Set Aside: 2-4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 9:00AM-1:00PM (right when you wake up, to combat hangovers)

Every bachelorette party will need some downtime to rest and recover from the festivities of the night before… or the night to come. Spas, massages, and salons are the go-to group daytime activity if your the bachelorette is craving a relaxing atmosphere and a serene respite from all the chaos of the past months’ wedding planning. Most of four-star and five-star hotel properties along Miami Beach offer luxurious spa packages for you and your ladies to wind down, so it’s merely a matter of finding the one that fits your style and price point. For example: The Spa at Mandarin Oriental offers unique treatments influenced by ancient Chinese medicine; Tierra Santa Healing House at The Faena specializes in Native American natural / holistic treatments; Lapis Spa at the Fontainebleau is known for its hydrothermal therapy offerings. So throw on your comfiest robe, grab a glass of champagne, clear your mind of clutter, assume your favorite position of relaxation, and let your chosen spa take care of the rest. The well-deserved pampering will leave your crew of wild ones fully refreshed and ready to tackle on another exciting night in Miami.

Enjoy a magnificent sightseeing experience full of lazy crystal blue waves on your way to an island or sandbar 30 minutes from the beach… then three hours of high-energy party access on a private island or sandbar. Upon your arrival, the crew turns the music up and unloads water toys – stand-up paddle boards, floaties, water trampolines, and water mats, snorkel gear – for you and the gents to enjoy while sipping cold drinks and mingling on the boat deck or in the water to make new friends.

A 3-hour tour of this famed Miami neighborhood is the most ideal excursion, and expert tour guides will delve deep into the history and traditions of Caribbean-influenced local customs… which of course includes introducing you to some of the most delectable food and snacks in the world along your journey. The tour begins with a short history lesson at the Bay of Pigs monument and quickly proceeds to the famed Calle Ocho, with visits to one of the oldest farmers’ markets on the continent to learn about hard-to-find Caribbean tropical fruits and a cigar factory to watch taqueros hand roll tobacco leaves into the finest cigars. After the sightseeing and history lessons, the culinary onslaught soon begins:

  • A coffee shop visit for a cortada, or a small cup of high-octane Cuban coffee
  • Fresh-squeezed tropical juices made to order by local street vendors
  • Fresh baked pastries, and/or a Cuban sandwich or empanada
  • Small plates of ropa vieja, mofongo, pescado escabeche, or other main dish staples from around the Caribbean
  • Classic cocktails (mojitos, Cuba Libres) at a Cuban Socialista-style cantina
  • Desserts (Cuban ice cream, flan, dark chocolate)

Added bonus: as you dine and drink and savor the flavors, your tour guide will share the origins, ingredients, and customs surrounding each of the culinary stops. And she’ll even tell you where in the neighborhood to go for salsa / merengue lessons and attractive Don Juan charmers, should the charms of Calle Ocho seduce you and the girls into extending your visit deeper into the hot Latin night.

7) Put It in the Bag – Shopping

Lincoln Road Outdoor Plaza / Shopping Center  Miami, Florida

  • Cost Per Person: Free to stroll (Shopping… that’s another story)
  • Time To Set Aside: 2-3 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 2:00PM-6:00PM (good post-lunch or pre-dinner activity, plus downtime to recover for late-night entertainment plans)

Miami has plenty of activities for you to do “’til you drop” and of course shopping is one of them. Located on Lincoln Road between restaurant-laden Alton Road and nightclub-laden Washington Avenue, Lincoln Road Mall is a high-end pedestrian walk and outdoor shopping center. Originally designed with Art Deco flair in the 1950s, the Lincoln Road shopping metropolis received a major modernization overhaul in 1997 that produced a resurgence in its popularity; in 2011, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places, enshrining its status as a cultural hub in Miami. Shoppers can expect to find big-brand fashion retail giants – Banana Republic, Gap, Macy’s, Lululemon Athletica, Sephora – alongside chic local boutiques, each carrying their latest warm-weather fashions to appeal to the eyes and wallets of wealthy Miamians and well-heeled tourists. Interspersed among the shops are a bevvy of restaurant options from fast food to fine dining (most of them a tad overpriced, unfortunately); the Lincoln Road also hosts morning yoga classes throughout the year, outdoor concerts when whether permits, and farmers & artisan crafts market on Sundays where you might just find that perfect piece of jewelry or accessory to complement your matching bridesmaids dresses.

8) Get Wet… Again! – Jet Skiing

Jet skiing in Biscayne Bay - Miami, Florida
  • Venue (Location): Jet Ski Tours of Miami (Biscayne Bay)
  • Cost Per Person: $149 and up
  • Time To Set Aside: 1.5-2 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 3:00PM-6:00PM (allows enough downtime to recover for evening dinner / entertainment plans)

Admit it: every time you see pics or videos of Kim Kardashian or Kendall Jenner on those jet skis, you’ve hoped to someday reenact those glamorous scenes. Now is your chance to do so with the girls, while at the same time taking in a Miami sightseeing tour from a very unique angle. You’ll mount and ride Yamaha wave runners at top speed as you hop around Biscayne Bay to visit six islands, zoom past the Port of Miami and wave “Bon Voyage” to all the jealous passengers on the decks of the cruise ships, and – if you’re lucky – catch glimpses of dolphins playing or a peaceful manatee backstroking in the water. Tourist hotspots Star Island and Sir Flagler Island are stops along the route, along with hundreds of other Instagram-worthy scenes. Make sure at least one of the ladies has a waterproof camera phone in tow, line up some friendly wagers for jet ski races among the crew to see who’s buying the evening’s first round of drinks, and get gassed up for some fun in the South Florida sun.

9) Murals & Mojitos – Wynwood Art Tour / Bar Crawl

bachelorette party at Wynwood Art Walk, Miami, Florida
  • Venue: Wynwood Art & Bar Tour (Wynwood)
  • Cost Per Person: $60
  • Time To Set Aside: 4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 5:30PM (start time for early tour; ensure you return early enough to rest, shower, and grab a bite before going out)

So you’ve done a few of the other items on this list, and now your bachelorette party might be in need of a brief window of a low-key and somewhat high-brow activity – less thrill and more chill. Fear not, there are a handful of fun daytime activities that don’t require participants to sign an injury waiver. One of these is the Wynwood Art & Bar Crawl, which takes dazzled guests on a walking tour of 4-5 local bars in between marveling at the neighborhood’s world-famous multi-story wall murals. Although specific murals are constantly changing, the area is filled with permanent must-see fixtures from international street art superstars like David Walker and Interesni Kazki. An experienced tour guide will give you the 101 on the marvelous works of art and the artists, their stories, and their cutting-edge techniques, as well as the story of how Wynwood itself as transformed into one of the hippest art and entertainment districts in the world. And after all the artsy download, you’ve got plenty of friendly watering holes in the neighborhood to try out your newfound knowledge as part of your drink-and-chat game. As a courtesy, here are some of the more popular bars and breweries to check out when the Art Walk bar crawl ends:

  • Centro Wynwood (turns into a happening club starting around sunset)
  • The Dirty Rabbit
  • Wood Tavern
  • Gramps
  • R House Wynwood
  • Barter Wynwood
  • Concrete Beach Brewery
  • Veza Sur Brewery
  • J. Wakefield Brewery
  • Wynwood Brewing Co.

10) Break a Sweat – Group Dance Class

  • Venue (Location): Vixen Workout (Overtown / Downtown Miami)
  • Cost Per Person: $20 and up
  • Time Length of Activity: 1.5 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 9:00AM – 11:30AM (burn some calories before a hearty brunch)

Got some gym rats and health nuts in the party demanding to break a healthy sweat at some point in the weekend? Perhaps the last thing you or the bride-to-be want to do is work out while on your Miami vacation… unless it’s a fun group class that’s a perfect female bonding activity for a Miami bachelorette bash. Taught by professional modern dancers and featured in the New York Times and Vogue magazine, Vixen Workout – VXN – is a convenient short trip across the causeway from South Beach and covers all the basic movements and techniques for getting pulses racing while recreating smashing hip-hop / pop video dance routines. At Vixen Workout, you’ll get to dance to killer music, learn popular modern moves you’re sure to apply immediately on Tik Tok or at Miami’s nightclubs, glean expert confidence-building tips on how to look fierce and move fiercer like your favorite Hollywood starlet, and construct a high-energy choreographed routine for the bride-to-be to show off to her fiancee… and for the bridal party show off to friends and strangers at future house parties. Like J. Lo at the Super Bowl halftime show, it’ll be the bachelorette’s time to shine… with her maid of honor Shakira and her backup dancers in tow, of course.

Bonus Activity: Men at Work – Male Revue Show

Hunk-O-Mania male review show, Miami, Florida
  • Venue (Location): Hunk-O-Mania Miami (South Beach)
  • Cost Per Person: $20 and up
  • Time Length of Activity: 2-3 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 7:00PM-10:00PM (show start times for most revues are in evenings)

They call it “Magic City” for a reason, so it’s no cause for shame at all if the bachelorette party wants to include a more magical ride on the naughty side. Male revue shows are the quintessential way to get the pulses racing, and Miami is home to Hunk-O-Mania, one of the best male revue shows in the world. Yes you’ll get your fill of good-looking Adonises of all races with chiseled physiques and washboard abs, but along with that you’ll also get expertly choreographed high-energy dance routines that ooze charisma, athleticism, swagger, and sex appeal. For many of the shows, you’ll also be offered the opportunity to snap photos with the hunks of your choice as well as treat the bride-to-be to an up-close-and-personal lap dance. And along with such multi-sensory delights, a bit of light internet research beforehand can yield plenty of “bang for your buck” in the form of discounts and bundling packages that include limo rides, fancy dinners, and cocktails as value-added side dishes to your lip-smacking main course.


In conclusion: Miami is definitely a bachelorette party destination where a lot of good times can be had by a group of ladies along all points of the budget spectrum. It is a magical beachfront oasis where both indoor and outdoor activities can spice up any hen party agenda… if you know the lay of the land.

Top 10 Best Bachelor Party Activities In Miami / South Beach

Headed to Miami for a bachelor party soon? On top of dinners and nightclubs, you’ll need to plan afternoon and early-evening group activities for the bachelor and his group that are fun and memorable, while still giving you the most value for your money spent.

The state of Florida is known as a warm-weather haven for snowbirds, i.e. seasonal residents and visitors who during the winter escape the colder climates of their hometowns for its supremely pleasant October-to-March calendar stretch. In fact, many Floridians themselves are transplants to the state who once upon a time visited from parts of the U.S. further north – or their parents / grandparents / great-grandparents did – and decided they loved it here so much that they didn’t want to leave. The fabulous weather – and in the few months when it’s not fabulous, they’ve got air-conditioners and heaters! – combined with the relatively low cost of living has drawn 21.5 million residents to Florida, 6.2 million of which live in the metro area of Miami which is the state’s economic center and largest city.

The Miami that most out-of-town visitors know is the South Beach one: steamy summer temps, white and neon tones, sheer opulence, fast money, stylish excess, and glitzy sensory overload.  Of course, the locals and insiders are happy to deliver upon those stereotypes, because that’s the version that tourists pay handsomely to witness and be a part of. And South Floridians surely play that fiddle in harmonious tune, because more tourists to Miami in general and SoBe specifically mean more revenues generated and jobs created for the state’s sun-kissed residents!

Why is planning a bachelor party so hard?

Your bachelor has just chosen the Magic City as the destination city and assembled his crew; now you’re on the hook to make magic happen. So you let out a big sigh, open up your laptop and hop on the internets, and get to work on mapping out this epic weekend in Miami.  You’re halfway through planning the shindig, and you’ve already locked down a great room rate at one of Miami’s top hotels. As you start your bachelor party activities search, you know you’re not totally a lost puppy – a handful of you may have partied in South Florida a couple times in the past with and without the man of honor, and you’ve got some local friends in high and low places who are willing to offer sound and not-so-sound recommendations – but of course you wouldn’t mind having a professional to guide you.   You know, someone who can take all those half-formed suggestions floating around and give you accurate, actionable answers?

We’re deep into this Miami nightlife game, and we know how to play it to a “T” boys.  We’ve helped THOUSANDS of satisfied clients with their bachelor party needs in Miami, Vegas, Los Angeles, and other cities; we’ve been featured on BBC Travel and we are also highly reviewed on Yelp! and in both the App Store and Google Play.  

We know you’re in town for a good time, not a long time… so you’ll need some expert guidance to help narrow down your choices to round out your ideal bachelor party agenda. And lo and behold, that’s where we come through for you once again. Our Discotech operations staff are experts in Miami entertainment, with nearly two decades of experience handling customer requests in this high-traffic market. So without further adieu, here is our Top 10 list of the best and most entertaining bachelor party activities to partake of while in Miami in order to ensure a memorable stag party experience.

1) The Night King Cometh – Nightclubs

  • Venue (Location): Varies by price and music type (click here for recommendations)
  • Cost Per Person: Free (certain guest lists); $10-100 (discounted guest lists & presale tickets); $200 and up (VIP tables)
  • Time Length of Activity: 4-5 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 10:00PM-12:00AM (avoid long lines and waits)

Seems predictable, but sorry not sorry gents: the activity of nightclubbing HAS to be #1 and #1A on any Miami bachelor party list. Why, you say? Greater Miami – and South Beach in particular – is a legendary party epicenter that epitomizes international debauchery; with the exceptions of Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and NYC, you just can’t really get such high-quality versions of this revelry anywhere else in America. And on top of that, Miami nightlife has got three YUUUUGE advantages over those other cities:

  1. Many of the best clubs in Miami are in walking distance or a cheap Uber / Lyft ride from each other in South Beach, so bar or club crawling – either planned or impromptu – is easy to pull off.
  2. There are hundreds of clubbing options in the city to match your budget, vibe, and music type whether you’re into electronic, hip-hop, Top 40, or Latin / international beats.
  3. Places don’t get packed until later in the night – 12:30-1:30am are when most spots start to fill up – and stay open longer and often well into the early morning – so you can enjoy your day activities and dinners without feeling rushed, and your clubbing budget as well as the bachelor’s fun will stretch out further.

2) Drive for Show, Putt for Dough – Golf / TopGolf

Topgolf Miami at dusk
  • Venue (Location): TopGolf (Miami Gardens)
  • Cost Per Person: $30.00 and up per hour (bay rental; does not include club rental or buckets of balls)
  • Time To Set Aside: 3-4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 5:00PM-9:00PM (twilight skies offer majestic backdrop for watching balls take flight)

The aforementioned incredible weather throughout most of the year makes South Florida a prime destination for grabbing the sticks and hitting the links. If the bachelor in your group fancies himself more “Tiger Woods” than “Tiger King” then there are plenty of wonderful golf courses around town with different levels of challenge and volume/formality to whet his appetite for gripping and ripping. Whether or not your crew hits the actual links in the daytime, you’ll want to find your way to TopGolf in the late afternoon. Now operating in 50 US cities, TopGolf is interactive video game golf come to life: a high-tech driving range facing a 240-yard outfield with dartboard-like targets of varying distances in the ground. Players hit golf balls into the wild blue yonder with the goal of landing them at the center of these targets, which are marked by flags to resemble golf greens. The balls contain computer microchips that track each shot’s distance and accuracy, and players score points for proximity which are displayed on a high-definition interactive video touchscreen in the comfort of their air-conditioned luxury bay. All the while, food and beverages are served to golfers tableside (or is it teeside?) by peppy, buxom waitresses. And if some in the big bachelor group want to wander, the facility has a full-service restaurant and three bars, pool tables, shuffleboard, Xbox games, cornhole and more.

3) Get Wet! – Dayclubs / Pool Parties

Hyde Beach poolside, Miami
  • Venue (Location): Varies by price and music type (click here for recommendations)
  • Cost Per Person: Free (certain guest lists); $5-100 (discounted guest lists & presale tickets); $200 and up (VIP loungers, daybeds, & cabanas)
  • Time Length of Activity: 4-5 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 11:30AM-1:30PM (avoid long lines and waits)

Pool parties are a legendary daytime activity that epitomizes the sumptuously debaucherous surfside feel of Miami Beach, and the ones here are arguably second-best only to those of Las Vegas. At least one of these day parties on your bachelor weekend agenda is a must; even for guys who don’t like nightclubs, the eye candy, sunshine, cool plunges to beat the heat (and did we mention eye candy?) make it worth it. For any bachelor party larger than four 4-5 gents, it’s a no-brainer to book a cabana or daybed with bottle service in order to maximize the fun; for a smaller stag-do or one that wants variety, we suggest purchasing presale tickets. Find one of the hottest events going on that weekend using our Discotech app, and go see one of your favorite DJs or performing artists. For a Saturday day party, Hyde Beach and Nikki Beach are the best party scenes especially if money ain’t a thang: between the killer music lineups, badass surroundings, and (did we mention) eye candy, these two venues are head-and-shoulders above the rest if your bachelor is into nothing but the best.

4) I’m On a Boat! (Part I) – Everglades Tour

  • Venue (Location): Captain Jack’s Boat Tours @ Everglades National Park
  • Cost Per Person: $50 (private boat rental $300; holds up to 6 passsengers)
  • Time To Set Aside: 4 hours (1.5-hour commute plus 1-2 hours on boat + animal sanctuary)
  • Best Time of Day to Go: leaving at sunrise is your only option

Got some nature lovers coming along on the bachelor party? If it’s the first trip to Miami for many of the lads, Everglades National Park should be on your to-do list for a memorable midday option to break from the drinking and partying. The park is known for its expansive emerald-hued beauty as well as its diverse wildlife population that includes everything from bobcats to alligators. A private charter fanboat zooms you across the twists and turns of the creature-filled swamplands while an experienced tour guide narrates the history and topography of South Florida’s most famous natural feature. Many of the tour operators are at least 30 miles west of Miami, so the drive there and back can be boring but also a great chance for a quick nap or a catch-up chat with the fellas you haven’t seen in awhile. The humidity in the swampland is no joke and like a sauna will have you sweating out the night before… or preemptively burning calories for the night to come. However, the picturesque views of the Everglades – plus the chance to get snaps up-close-and-personal with a Florida gator – make the trek totally worth it.

The nationwide craft beer revolution – spurred by a broader movement toward community-based, locally inspired businesses – has in the last few years taken the Magic City by storm. Miami long staked its reputation on its craft cocktail scene, pristine beaches, and nightclubbing / VIP tables / bottle service. Lately though, it’s been building out a new local reputation for bars, taps, and quality craft beer, so if the bachelor is more into suds than spritzers we strongly recommend a ride on the magic Miami Brew Bus. With three unique tours showcasing Miami’s craft beer scene, you’ll have a night of sampling the city’s very best plus a safe ride from one brewery to the next. Weekly tours meet at the Union Beer Store in Little Havana at noon on Saturdays, but the bus is also available for private bookings any day of the week.

Nothing will make the bachelor feel more badass than channeling his inner Tony Montana through a cigar smoking sesh, and Little Havana Cigar Factory is where Miami’s big bosses have their roundtables. Located in the heart of Little Havana – a site long known as a center of social, cultural, and political activity in Miami – the Cigar Factory carries a decades-old tradition of serving only the finest handmade cigars, accessories, books, and art. When you walk in you’re immediately transported back into time via a cozy walnut wood-accented 1950s Cuban club ambiance. Highly skilled Cuban Cigar Rollers show off the various steps of their cherished craft at display tables, while customers stroll through aisles and aisles of colorful, luxurious cigar box displays imported from exotic locales all over the world. You can further experience a delight for the senses by sampling a Cuban espresso and great Latin music along with your premium stogie, all while you and the lads lounge on comfy leather sofas talking sports and politics. There are also many quality Cuban eateries within walking distance on the Calle Ocho strip for you to grab a bite and a mojito before or after your smoke. So, choose from dark or light tobacco and from short or long rolls, grab a cigar cutter and a matchbook, and say hello to your little friend!!! (Or whatever Scarface quote comes to mind.)

Now is your chance to do so with the fellas, while at the same time taking in a Miami sightseeing tour from a very unique angle. You’ll mount and ride Yamaha wave runners at top speed as you hop around Biscayne Bay to visit six islands, zoom past the Port of Miami and wave “Bon Voyage” to all the jealous passengers on the decks of the cruise ships, and – if you’re lucky – catch glimpses of dolphins playing or a peaceful manatee backstroking in the water. Tourist hotspots Star Island and Sir Flagler Island are stops along the route, along with hundreds of other Instagram-worthy scenes. Make sure at least one of the lads has a waterproof camera phone, line up some friendly wagers for jet ski races among the crew, and get gassed up for some fun in the South Florida sun.

You haven’t lived until you’ve sprawled out under the South Florida sun with a cold brewski in hand at an afternoon or early evening baseball game. For five weeks every spring, various cities in Central and South Florida host Major League Baseball Spring Training, where sun-drenched fans get to watch professional superstar athletes up-close-and-personal as they tune up for the start of their regular season in April. If you can line up your bachelor party during the spring, it’s one of the most happening times of the year in Miami, as fans rent cars to drive out to the various stadiums during the day but stay in Greater Miami to enjoy the beaches and nightlife. You get to rub the beautiful weather and one of the best day-drinking scenes in America in the world’s chapped winter faces, with bonus points if you snap photos and post them to social media so your friends freezing at home under 2 feet of snow can hate you cuz they ain’t you. If you can’t come in February or March, you’ll miss Spring Training but you can still catch MLB action at Marlins Park, the beautiful and modern home stadium of the Miami Marlins. Whether you’re a longtime resident or a bachelor party tourist, a die-hard baseball aficionado or someone who doesn’t know an RBI from an ERA, baseball is a deep source of pride for Miami and a quintessential part of the true local experience. 

10) Murals & Mojitos – Wynwood Art Tour / Bar Crawl

  • Venue: Wynwood Bar Crawl (Wynwood)
  • Cost Per Person: $60
  • Time To Set Aside: 4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 5:30PM (start time for early tour; ensure you return early enough to rest, shower, and grab a bite before going out)

So you’ve done a few of the first nine items on this list, and now your bachelor party might be in need of a brief window of a low-key and somewhat high-brow activity – less thrill and more chill. Fear not, there are a handful of fun daytime activities that don’t require participants to sign an injury waiver. One of these is the art-infused Wynwood Bar Crawl, which takes guests on a walking tour of 4-5 local bars in between marveling at the neighborhood’s world-famous multi-story wall murals. Although specific murals are constantly changing, the area is filled with permanent must-see fixtures from international street art superstars like David Walker and Interesni Kazki. An experienced tour guide will give you the 101 on the marvelous works of art and the artists, their stories, and their cutting-edge techniques, as well as the story of how Wynwood itself as transformed into one of the hippest art and entertainment districts in the world. And after all the artsy download, you’ve got plenty of friendly watering holes in the neighborhood to try out your newfound knowledge as part of your drink-and-chat game. As a courtesy, here are some of the more popular bars and breweries to check out when the Artwalk bar crawl ends:

  • Centro Wynwood (turns into a happening club starting around sunset)
  • The Dirty Rabbit
  • Wood Tavern
  • Gramps
  • R House Wynwood
  • Barter Wynwood
  • Concrete Beach Brewery
  • Veza Sur Brewery
  • J. Wakefield Brewery
  • Wynwood Brewing Co.

Bonus Activity: Ladies of the Night

  • Venue (Location): Varies
  • Cost Per Person: $20 cover charge (lap dance / champagne room prices vary)
  • Time To Set Aside: Umm… zero hours. None of you were ever here, right?
  • Best Time of Day to Go: Anytime

For 99% of bachelor parties, a late-night strip club trip is a standard item on the agenda. Miami is one of the better cities in America for gentlemen’s clubs, not only for variety of young “talent” but for low costs of drinks and dances. When it comes to quality of women, G5ive, Tootsie’s, and Gold Rush Cabaret are the top choices as much in the daytime as they are at night; both are pretty far from the South Beach nightclub party scene distancewise, but well worth the effort and the pricy cab ride. For an “Only In Miami” experience though, we highly recommend you direct the troops to E11even. Operating as a 24-hour nightclub / strip club / after-hours experience, E11even features stunning entertainers and theatrical performances in an alluring environment that is as sexy as it is sophisticated. Multiple stages, exotic acts, dazzling light shows, and acrobatic theatrics take hold of the space every weekend; its got something for everyone and is the tried-and-true way to put the cherry on top of your epic Miami bachelor party (and might be the last time the bachelor can get away with going to an establishment of this nature).


In conclusion: Miami is definitely a bachelor party destination where a lot of good times can be had by a group of lads along all points of the budget spectrum. It is a magical beachfront oasis where both indoor and outdoor activities can spice up any bachelor party agenda… if you know the lay of the land. Your friends and nightlife guides here at Discotech are an essential part of that equation – we help you browse and book free guest lists and cheap presale tickets or VIP bottle service for the hottest nightclubs and pool parties in Miami. What are you waiting for?

Miami Nightclubs and Bars Currently Reopen After Coronavirus

Some bars and breweries will be allowed to reopen May 27, provided they served food before the pandemic as several South Florida cities reopen their restaurant scene. Those bars with food service licenses will be allowed to seat customers again, though they still must restrict capacity to no more than 50 percent and follow all CDC guidelines laid out in the restaurant reopening process.

Venues that are strictly bars and do not have a food service license cannot reopen yet, according to the county’s New Normal plan.

Last week, on May 18, Miami-Dade County allowed restaurants, retail stores and salons to reopen with restrictions. But several municipalities, including Miami, Miami Beach and Hialeah, banded together to delay opening retail until May 20 and restaurants until May 27.

But don’t expect to grab a stool at your favorite watering hole.

Restaurants with a bar area must keep the bar closed during this phase of reopening. Counters will be closed for seating. Bars with restaurant licenses will have to provide seating like a standard restaurant with tables six feet apart, said spokespersons for the county and and Miami Beach.

Top 10 Best Hotels in Miami / South Beach

You’re halfway through planning a trip to Miami, and you already know that you’re one of those destination party animals that wants a memorable experience full of luxury and modern amenities…. and you’re willing to open up the purse strings to get that. So then, it behooves you and your vacation companions to mobilize early in order to lock down a good room rate at one of Miami’s top hotels.  Take it from us experts: there are a handful of magnificent Miami resorts that are head and shoulders above the rest of crowded pack, ones that offer all the trappings you desire in the central location you want and are conveniently right smack dab in South Beach.

What are the best high-end / upscale luxury hotels in South Beach, Miami in 2020?

The Miami that most out-of-town visitors know is the South Beach one: steamy summer weather, sheer opulence, fast money, stylish excess, and glitzy sensory overload.  Of course, the locals and insiders are happy to deliver upon those stereotypes, because that’s the version that tourists pay handsomely to witness and be a part of. So South Floridians play that fiddle in harmonious tune, because more SoBe tourists mean more revenues generated and jobs created for the city’s residents.

Here, in order of our highly experienced and well-traveled Discotech customer service staff’s preferences, is our Top 10 list of high-end hotels you will want to visit – and stay at, if you can – on your next trip to Miami Beach:

1) Fontainbleau

Since opening its doors in 1954, the legendary Fontainbleau has held its place atop many a “Best Hotels in Miami” list. Fontainbleau looms largest among its peers in physical size – 1,504 rooms, most in Miami – but perhaps more importantly in history, reputation, and panache. Early-era entertainment icons Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Marilyn Monroe, and Elvis Presley registered regular stays there while in town; a who’s who of contemporary stars such as Sean “P-Diddy” Combs, Ariana Grande, Gwyneth Paltrow, and even Miami resident J-Lo have recently booked stay-cations there. With multiple pools, twelve on-site dining experiences, and an endless array of luxury diversion options for visitors, the most stress you’ll encounter is choosing your daily agenda. No worries though, they’ve got a cure for that too: clear your scheduled and spend an entire day at Lapis, Fontainebleau’s 40,000-square-foot spa.

If you think you’ll be roughing it in the woods like a tree-hugger though, you’ll be sadly mistaken. Airy rooms average 700 square feet – some of the largest in Miami – and are outfitted with Carrara marble soaking tubs and rainfall showers. Make time to check out the 18th-floor pool, an adults-only enclave next to to the hotel’s rooftop bar, which spoils guests with panoramic views of downtown Miami due west, the Atlantic Ocean due east, and the urban sprawl of the South Florida coastline due north and south.

The well-known on-site restaurants give the hotel cachet among foodies, while a legendary party pool scene and two bars keep the party going from morning until… the next morning. At night though, Miami’s craziest party people staying here opt for wilder nightclub scenes around the city, and so the scene at SLS Hotel resembles more a cool, hip, chill, low-key European-style ultra-lounge.

Thank to a 2014 overhaul to combine its Art Deco roots with modern luxury, the Shelborne South Beach has risen to become a popular pick for those seeking a less opulent (and slightly less expensive) but still stylish, upscale experience right on Collins Avenue. Standard rooms are smaller than those of the other hotels on this list; however, amenities are top-notch and include all the most important staples including beach access and a heated pool.

Top 10 Best Cheap Hotels in South Beach Miami

Headed to Miami on a budget? These affordable hotels on the main South Beach drag that is the center of entertainment offer the most bang for your buck, not to mention prime location and plenty of upside.

The Miami that most out-of-town visitors know is the one of steamy summer weather, sheer opulence, fast money, gluttonous excess, and glitzy sensory overload.  Of course, the locals and insiders are happy to indulge all those “Magic City” stereotypes, because that’s the version that many tourists pay handsomely to be a part of. And South Floridians play the fiddle in tune because “a fool and his money are soon parted” as the old saying goes – more revenues generated and jobs created for the city’s residents.

That being said, having a blast in Miami on a budget is actually much easier than you think. With the right hotel choice, you can save A TON money for all the fun stuff: shows, attractions, and of course…. reasonably priced (aka “Ballin on a Budget”) nightlife.  But, first things first: if you’ve already told yourself that you’re one of those party animals that only needs a room to shower and nap pretty much, then you should to move early to lock down a good room rate at one of the best cheap (3-star or lower) hotels in Miami.

Take it from us experts: there are indeed a handful of budget-conscious resorts that offer all the amenities you need in the central location you want – right smack dab on South Beach – and at a ridiculously reasonable price point.   Here,  in order of our highly experienced customer service staff’s preferences, is our Discotech Top 10 List of best cheap – ahem, “affordable” – hotels smack in the center of Miami’s primary entertainment district, all within walking distance of the city’s world-famous nightclubs:

1) Hotel Victor

Entrance to Hotel Victor, Miami Beach

Located next to the Versace Mansion, the Victor was designed by Jacques Garcia (the man behind Paris’s Hôtel Costes), who adapted the “retro” 1930s Art-Deco feel into the Victor’s modern architecture. Garcia splashed the interiors with bold reds, magentas, and emeralds against warm and soothing beige tones. The Victor’s mosaic-tiled pool is tiny but equally beautifully decorated, as are the spa and the on-site restaurant Bice Ristorante. Comfortable guest rooms are outfitted with walk-in showers and infinity bathtubs for you to relax to the fullest while scrubbing the South Beach sand off your newly tanned body.

One of the best budget hotels in Miami, the Freehand is not short on quirky character than many of its South Beach competitors, with vintage pieces from flea markets adorning the lobby and its 63 guest rooms. Because the property started out as a hostel – and technically still is – guests can opt to book shared “dorms” for four or eight in addition to private rooms for two.

Across from the beach and in the middle of the all-night Ocean Drive chaos, this hotel relishes its niche role catering to younger spring breakers, with free Wi-Fi and a bar that serves fishbowl-size mojitos. For guests who aren’t going to be bothered by dingy yet safe hallways and tiny guest room bathrooms, the Colony is a wonderful way to stretch your dollar

5) Clinton Hotel

lobby of Clinton Hotel, Miami Beach

The Clinton is an affordable, comfortable, clean hotel that’s only two blocks from the beach while surrounded by the swarm of South Beach bars and restaurants.. The upholstery is aging and the rooms are small, but the property make up for that by offersingmore amenities than most small-scale budget boutiques in the area. And the best part: it’s actually tucked away in a much quieter location than most South Beach hotels, so your night’s sleep – or day’s sleep, you party animal! – will be more peaceful and less subject to noise interruptions.

  • Sunny enclosed courtyard
  • Large hot tub on-site
  • On-site French restaurant (with room service)
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi and in-room Netflix

With its lush tropical gardens buffering its guests from the white-hot bustle of the South Beach streets, The Kimpton Angler’s Hotel has all the feel of a serene desert oasis. This low-key 46-room property also has a top-notch restaurant and a small but well-groomed and always peaceful pool and courtyard. Other surrounding properties in the neighborhood do offer more features and amenities, but the Angler should be your go-to choice if the only thing you really care about – other than your party plans – is having a hotel room that is more adult than college dorm.

  • Spacious Wallace Tutt-designed rooms
  • HDTVs plus surround sound in each room
  • Central location to main South Beach drag

It is elegant yet unpretentious, and bursting at the seams with vibrant color patterns. Proximity to the beach is the main selling point of Marseille, but a relatively large outdoor pool with lots of seating is certainly a plus. Brightly decorated rooms come with coffee makers and electronic safes, and some of the rooms even have small balconies to take in Miami cityscape views and jetted tubs.

  • Beach loungers and umbrellas (included in resort fee)
  • Contemporary, rooms with hairdryers, flat-screen TVs, and AC
  • Attractive pool lined by loungers and daybeds

In 1997, new owners and management restored and reopened the hotel, which today stands asa historical landmark and treasure in the heart of ritzy South Beach. The National Hotel is hard to beat when it comes to location – a stone’s throw from the sand and rolling waves – but it’s got plenty of style and amenities as well. The tower’s 116 rooms provide sweeping views of downtown Miami across to the Atlantic Ocean, with cabanas and artist-inspired suites lining Miami’s longest infinity-edge party pool. The poolside Aqua Club is a prime pre-game prelude to a long night of South Beach partying, with specialty cocktails and classic favorites available.

Pool at Surfcomber Hotel, Miami Beach

Built in 1948 and acquired by the Kimpton hotel chain in 2011, the 186-room Surfcomber Hotel is more affordable and more casual than most of its swankier neighbors. It’s always been more hip with the cool kids: with its giant rectangular pool and direct beach access, the hotel has become world-famous for its high-energy pool parties during big Miami weekends (it served as the headquarters for MTV during the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards and for Bud Light during 2010 Super Bowl XLIV). On the inside, the rooms are small but trendy with colorful surf-themed decor and a host of modern amenities, such as flat-screen TVs, smartphone docks, and in-room yoga equipment.

Patio Deck of Townhouse Hotel Miami

Where beach house charm meets old-fashioned comfort in the heart of South Beach. Located steps from South Beach, the Townhouse is quite the minimalist property that offers guests bright, stylish rooms with little to add in terms of amenities. Still, it’s a property that’s cleaner, more modern, and less sketchy then some of the other South Beach hotels at the same price point. It’s also a great fit for clubheads and well-behaved party people, as it attracts a younger, hipper, and good-looking global crowd that takes advantage of the venue’s proximity to the famed Miami nightlife spots.

  • Direct beach access
  • Rooftop bar The Cape (managed by SBE)
  • On-site restaurant Ramen Baby Burger
  • Free continental breakfast

Top 10 Best Hip-Hop Clubs in Miami

Top 10 Best Nightclubs in Miami in 2020

Along with New York City, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas, Miami rounds out the list of top-tier cities in the United States, known for their nightlife. Miami nightlife is known for being exhilarating and one of a kind, not only in the States but throughout the whole world. In these cities, a diverse array of out-of-towners visit specifically to partake in late nights out, as such the nightlife scene is wild on the weekends and does not let up much during the week. Since there are so many options, out-of-towners often inquire about the best nightclubs in Miami.

That being said, as you would expect, your pool of weekday options is smaller, the hotspots are less obvious and always changing, and you’re more apt to be surrounded by locals (who are less likely to be interested in meeting and mingling with tourists). In addition, Miami’s glitterati and socialite circles prefer to go out Mon/Tue/Wed to enjoy a higher degree of privacy/exclusivity, as do the local working-class twentysomethings who spend their weekends toiling within Miami’s massive service & tourism industries.

Miami’s beautiful sunny weather will keep the good vibes going all day long, but the nights are where this city really comes to life. Some of the best and craziest clubs in the world are located here, and they keep the party going until sun comes up. Whichever club you decide to check out in Miami, you won’t be disappointed, but let us direct you to our top 10 best nightclubs in Miami.

LIV

Crowded dance floor at LIV Miami Fontainbleau

World renowned and for good reason, make sure to live a little by getting bottle service here

LIV is located within the trendy and opulent Fontainebleau Hotel. This premier nightclub is consistently ranked one of the top nightlife venues in the world and recently reopened after a $10 million renovation to kick off the nightclub’s tenth season.

The impressive club is 18,000 square feet of striking architecture that features soaring ceilings, vibrant lighting and its iconic dome. It’s the look, sound, and vibe of the club that appeals to the high-profile guests that can be found there night after night. This place has redefined nightlife on Miami Beach and pioneered the nightlife experience. You’ll be able to dance along to LIV’s custom music mixes and playlists, which often include live performances by artists who are reshaping today’s music, while going between the four full-service bars where talented mixologists shake and mix your favorite drinks. LIV allows you to enjoy a bird eye’s view of the party goers that flock Miami Beach’s clubs while staying in the comfort of fifty banquette areas and six private skyboxes that offer table service.

Since it opened in 2012, STORY has always been a frontrunner in the Miami nightlife scene. The high-quality nightlife and energy found in the club, which is located in the heart of Miami Beach, is thanks to the efforts of its creators: nightlife expert and mogul David Grutman and the Miami Marketing Group (who are also responsible for LIV at Fontainebleau Hotel).

Space

Massive dance floor party at Club Space

You don’t actually have to be an astronaut to go to Space, just book a table and you’ve got your ticket

Club Space, today the name is synonymous with dance music in the United States. Through its 18 years of operation, Club Space has distinguished itself as a premier club where nightlife enthusiasts can experience innovative dance parties and clubbing that are helmed by a variety of the most cutting-edge international DJs and live acts who play anything from techno, house, EDM, alternative, and hip-hop music. The Space is divided into four distinct sections: The Ground (a live venue), The Floyd (often regarded as the club’s “gem” and hosts eclectic house as well as live electronic acts), The Loft (an indoor area that plays mostly hip hop music), and The Terrace (their outdoor rooftop area has brought some of house and techno’s most notable acts to date). With their unrestricted operating hours and stellar lineup of resident and guest DJs, they provide nothing but the best in electronic music, local & international. Their party does not stop at 5 AM, and neither should you…

Wall

Small but crowded dane floor at WALL Miami

Don’t let the size of this place fool you cause it packs quite the punch when it comes to a good time

Wall Lounge located in the W South Beach Hotel, is a smaller and more intimate venue for partying. Since opening in July 2009, WALL has been a choice venue for Miami’s most coveted events and exclusive clients. Once you’re past the velvet ropes and through the beveled silver doors that frame the entrance to the club, you are immediately thrown into the VIP premier clubbing scene. With its rich, dark and elegant interior, Wall is the embodiment of sophistication, luxury and style with a dedication to service that is unparalleled in Miami. Additionally, its unique and open design allows for a constant flow of partiers dancing into the late morning hours.

Rockwell

A tribute to some of the famous past South Beach classics

Nightlife impresario Chris Paciello launched Rockwell Nightclub on Washington Avenue in Miami Beach in an effort to create a space that would combine the cool of Los Angeles, the music of New York, and the energy of Miami. In this venue, which previously was home to exclusive south beach hotspots like Les Bains and Chaos, 450 guests are able to enjoy entertainment in the form of mixed musical format and live performance.

Mynt

Busy dance floor and themed party at Mynt Lounge

A high end and luxurious club that will have you dancing to house music all night long

Mynt Lounge is infamous in South Beach and known for drawing in its share of high-profile, VIP, and celebrity guests.

Bright strobe lights hanging from the ceiling provide a flickering glimpse into the Miami party scene. The lounge is equipped with a full bar which is ready to accommodate every taste bud, but this VIP nightclub specializes in customer satisfaction with its elite table service. The dress code is strict so dress to impress if you want to pass one of the most stringent door policies in the area. Mynt sometimes holds special events over the weekend that include live entertainment and guest star DJs.

Treehouse

Crowd close to the DJ at Treehouse in Miami

A little more of a casual vibe while still bringing the energy

Treehouse is a two-room house and techno joint which hosts the ultimate clubbing institution on Miami Beach. With their kitschy decor and wild clientele, Treehouse creates an atmosphere much like that of an out-of-hand house party. The venue brings all good vibes with the best deep house and techno format in Miami and regularly features more “underground DJs like Cassy, Matt Tolfrey and Scuba. They are super low key and a casual atmosphere. At Treehouse there is no need for fancy attire. All you really need are a pair of comfortable dancing shoes if you ever wander out to the AstroTurf carpeting in the backyard.

Blue Martini (Brickell)

Blue Martini party dance floor in Miami

Mr Jones

There are tons of fun places to party when visiting Miami! Luckily, we’ve pulled together the best clubs to party in Miami. If you’re looking for bars or lounges, we strongly urge you to first check out the top clubs in Miami, as Miami is home to some of the best and most fun clubs in the world.

There are numerous nightlife options featuring a wide array of music styles – electronic, hip-hop, Brazilian/Latin – at Miami’s numerous traditional dance nightclubs. Note that most clubs that are open on weekends also have one signature weeknight for which they are known to draw bigger crowds, e.g. Mokai or Rockwell on Mondays, Do Not Sit on Wednesdays, and Ora on Thursdays.

Apart from traditional dance clubs, the most crowded mid-week spots to party will be where the locals hang out: happy hour bars in Brickell and Coconut Grove, restaurants and hipster/artist lounges in up-and-coming Wynwood, and of course Miami’s famous (infamous?) strip clubs: Tootsies, King of Diamonds, G5ive, and E11even, the latter of which is actually a hybrid strip/dance club concept worth checking out on any day of the week. And of course, during high tourist season (March through June), even the South Beach tourist trap bars will be as packed with college kids and European and South American visitors during the week as they are on the weekends.

Top 10 Bachelor Party Cities in US

Today, we’re going to look at some of the best cities for you bachelor party. Unlike the other lists we’ve written about, this one will be a ranking and we will be start at #1 because why not. I’ve never been a big fan of scrolling all the way down to the bottom either. But what makes a great bachelor city? Is it the people? The food? The options? The clubs? Today we’re hoping to answer all these questions and more. So grab your favorite suit, extra cash and all the alcohol you can carry, and strap in. Here we go!

#1. Las Vegas

If you don’t think Las Vegas is the best bachelor party location possible, you either have never been to Las Vegas or have been there with a bunch of losers who don’t know how to have fun. Las Vegas offers anything and everything you could want or need in a bachelor party.

There are plenty of nice hotels in Vegas, but you generally want to be in one on the strip. Just don’t completely cut your budget on hotels. It’s much harder thank you think to convince a girl to come back with you to a place like Planet Hollywood or Paris. Locations off the strip just make your life a pain in the ass. Traffic along the strip sucks and the less time you waste in the back of a limo, the better.

The pool parties in Vegas are second to none. Here’s a word of advice when dealing with the pool parties and later the clubs, always pay to cut the line or sign up for Guest List. It’s totally worth spending an extra $50 a man with a VIP host to not spend an hour or more on line. If you don’t know a guy, I’m sure your friend knows a guy, or your friend’s coworker knows a guy. There are plenty of those kinda “guys” in Vegas that can help you out in this situation, but why bother. Click the online Discotech app and avoid the stress and hassle.

Once night hits, you’ll need some good food. Prime Steakhouse is my favorite of all the Vegas steakhouses because it’s specific to Vegas. Stack in the Mirage is a step down from a steakhouse, but all the waitresses make the name of the restaurant proud. In ‘N Out is reachable by taxi if you just want to stuff your face. Then you’re off to the club, where you should be getting table service at Marquee or XS (the two best clubs in Vegas). It’s really hard to find regular bars to go out to in Vegas. The best you’re going to do is something the Chanderlier Bar at the Cosmpolitan, Ghostbar at the Palms, or Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay.

Or just get drunk while you gamble because that doesn’t hurt either. We know Vegas has you covered when it comes to table gaming. It’s also the only place you’ll find a sportsbook in the United States, so you can throw down on a horse race, a championship fight, or an NFL game without having to worry about too much. Grab your clubs and fit in a morning round on your first day out there or else you won’t have the energy to do so by the end of the weekend. There’s also a good chance you end up at the Spearmint Rhino to check out some of the hottest strippers in the world.

#2. Miami

First, lets talk about location. You are going to want to stay on South Beach. Brickell is a nice area if you’re living full-time in Miami, but South Beach is where you need to be for a wild bachelor party weekend. Brickell and other areas of Miami are farther away from South Beach and you don’t want to waste your time and money going back and forth. Also, don’t overpay on the hotel. You won’t be in your room much anyway, so why spend big bucks on an elite hotel? Hotel location is important, but classiness not so much.

Now for food. When it comes to food, you want to be stuffing your hungover face with anything breakfast/lunch on the menu at Big Pink. There are plenty of renowned New York restaurants that have opened up new locations in Miami like the Dutch, Scarpetta, and BLT Steak, but if you’re not grabbing a nice steak and a big Kobe meatball at Prime 112, you’re doing yourself a disservice. You can’t forget about local favorite Joe’s Stone Crab either. If you’re drunk and looking for late night munchies, now is the time to head over to the mainland and hit up La Moon for an arepa burger.

The nightlife scene is on par with anything you’ll get in the world. A night with bottle service at LIV should be on top of your list if you like clubbing. Club Space is the place to roll to at 5 a.m if you don’t want to stop raging. Places like the Clevelander, the Delano, and Nikki Beach (specifically day party) offer plenty of fun as well.

Lastly, the weather is great but avoid Hurricane Season as it rains a lot in Miami during that time. There are also plenty of places to golf, women galore and romance at the clubs. Those are all a given when hearing the word Miami obviously. The only thing you’re missing is gambling, but you won’t care when your eyes are fixed on your computer screen on Monday morning and you’re just thinking about how awesome your weekend was. Check out the Discotech app to see upcoming events in Miami.

#3. Montreal

Montreal is not technically in the US but it’s easy enough to head north of the border if you want to hit Canada’s party town. Montreal’s basically got you covered for anything bachelor party related. Perhaps the most notable thing in Montreal is the strip clubs. You can do the regular man’s thing on Saint Catherine Street by hopping around to Club Supersexe, Chateau du Sex, or Club Super Contact. If looking for something a little higher end, head to Kamasutra for a one of a kind show. They also take things a little further if you head down towards Old Montreal on Saint Catherines and ask the right people. If gambling is another activity you wish to indugle, you can head to the Montreal Casino, which isn’t too far away. It’s just smaller than you’d want in terms of available table gaming.

Trust me, you are really going to want to be on Boulevard Saint Laurent when searching for a place to drink. A place like Tokyo satisfies all your needs with good looking girls, multiple themed rooms, and a roof area. If bottle service is more your thing, Montreal has a scene where restaurants turn into a Club/Lounge atmosphere once it starts getting late. Make sure to download or click the Discotech App to check out what’s popping in Montreal. It’s a little different than what you’re used to in America because people tend to rage out by their tables and there’s usually not one main dance floor, but that doesn’t mean you can’t meet a nice local girl to party with for the night.

#4. New Orleans

Ah, New Orleans. Home to the infamous Mardi Gras. But fourth place? Yes, fourth place. The obvious reason is Bourbon Street, which, beleive it or not, is a lot more fun on something like a big sporting event weekend than it is during Mardi Gras. While you will miss out on seeing your share of naked ladies if you pass on Mardi Gras, Bourbon Street becomes much easier to manage.

There are still plenty of people during a big sporting event weekend to keep the fun up. Plus Bourbon Street has its share of strip clubs to get your fix there as well.

The food is also top tier. You can get anything pig-related at Cochon and it will be fantastic. You will not be disappointed, whether it’s pork ribs, smoked ham, fried boudin balls, or cochon itself. Johnny’s Po-Boys will get you your po-box fix.

Need some gambling? Harrah’s Casino is conveniently located near the water and open 24 hours a day, which may or may not be a good thing. Head to the Old New Orleans Rum distillery to make a nice day trip if you can wake up in time. New Orleans is one of the most fun places to be. Make sure to click Discotech to check out all the upcoming events in New Orleans!

#5. Charleston

Ah, number five. There are a ton of things to do in Charleston. For one, there are a lot of great restaurants in Charleston because of the large migration to the area from New Orleans’ best chefs after Hurricane Katrina. Places like Husk and The Ordinary are well recognized as some of the best restaurants in the country with Oak Steakhouse recently making a best of U.S. steakhouse list as well.

Golf and beaches are also two of Charleston’s finest qualities. You are truly lucky if you can somehow get a round of golf on the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island. If you can’t, you’ll still be able to find another great looking course to swing your clubs. The beaches get plenty of life, since the weather is generally good for most of the year.

There are plenty of fun bars on Bay Street and Market Street near the water or you can hit up King Street for bars closer to the University of Charleston’s campus. Neither area will disappoint.  The fun doesn’t stop when the bars close either. Thee Southern Belle strip club has a tremendous reputation and is a great place to go after hours in Charleston because you can BYOB. Regular girls even go there to hang out.

#6. Austin

One of everyone’s favorite Southern cities, Austin has a lot to offer for a bachelor party. We’ll start with the obvious – the women. There are few cities in America that can compete with Austin in terms of great looking women. Right behind the beautiful women is the barbecue, which is arguably as good as you’ll get anywhere in the country. Franklin Barbecue was recently voted the best barbecue in the country, so it’s a must-see spot on your trip.

With food and women out of the way, let’s focus on drinking. The bars on 6th street will have you satisfied or you can head over to the Warehouse District and Fourth Street if you’re looking to not hit the same spots all weekend. Need a good hangover omelet in the morning? Magnolia Café has got you covered. If music is your thing, Texas has two major music festivals that can give you your fill and are a fun thing to center a weekend around. Throw together with the generally warm weather, the potential for a University of Texas sporting event, plenty of local golf courses and you have the formula for success. Click here to see upcoming events in Austin!

#7. Nashville

There’s a good reason Nashville has the nickname of NashVegas. It’s a loved destination for travelers in the South and Midwest because it’s easy to get to and has lots to offer. The good thing about a place like this is the people you meet are for the morst part carefree and the visiting girls are very fun. I’d also recommened you get some good barbecue at Jack’s, a one of a kind meat and three or the Nashville specialty of hot chicken.

There are two main areas to get to drinking. There’s the well-known strip of bars on Broadway and a couple streets close by in the downtown area. You can also head out to the Midtown area near Vanderbilt and find plenty of places there.

I highly suggest checking out the Nashville Pedal Tavern, which is a unique and fun way to do a bar crawl and meet random chicks to hang out with. If your into shooting guns, you can do that too. The good thing about Nashville is that it’s weather-resistant, so it doesn’t really matter what time of year you check it out. The one downside is that basically every bar is country music heavy. If you’re not a fan, you might just have to bit your tongue and bear down the whole weekend. Click upcoming events in Nashville to see what’s going down!

#8 Phoenix / Scottsdale

When looking to throw it back to your youthful college days in bachelor party fashion, heading to Arizona is the best place for this type of experience . While there are a lot of scientific establishments and other boring things awaiting the average tourist in the state of Arizona, we’d not suggest those to you. Instead, you should be taking a road trip to Phoenix / Scottsdale for some brotherly bonding at adult clubs and open-till-late entertainment centers there.

Phoenix is ideal for those who do not mind getting tan and are craving a boyish road trip that would take them to wild nightclubs and unforgettable street parties. Some cool things to do while visiting include partying, golf, and river tubing. The food scene is also fantastic, as celebrated barbecue served by local restaurants and bars keep tourists coming from all over America.

#9 Denver

For those who don’t know, a Colorado bachelor party is a different kind of bachelor party entirely. No clubs, no strippers, and possibly not even any women. So what’s the appeal? Depending on your group dynamics, a rugged three-day weekend of rafting, skiing/ snowboarding, hiking, beer drinking, weed smoking, outdoor adventuring and manly-bonding can actually be more memorable than the typical club-scene.

However, if you want to squeeze in the nightlife scene, Denver is home to some excellent steak restaurants and bars. However, the natural beauty and seemingly endless things to do in the gorgeous outdoor environment is really the highlight of this location. Although not known for a wild nightlife scene, Denver does host epic events and concerts. Hit the slopes or a hiking trail in the morning and then finish the day partying at one of the many bars / venues featuring your favorite musician, is not a bad way to spend a day.

#10 New York

Last but not least, New York City. NYC certainly does have its positives. For starters there’s every type of bar imaginable and you can drink until 4 a.m. We recommend Brother Jimmys, then rink some good brews at the Standard Beer Garden, or hit a club like SL or 1Oak. The restaurants offer any cuisine a bachelor party can want whether it be pizza , burgers, barbecue, or steak.

For all the positives, this fine city has its downfalls for bachelor parties. It’s expensive, specifically with hotel rooms. You can’t do anything in New York between September and December because hotel prices will be through the roof. It also isn’t the best for strip clubs (yes, we know those matter too).
