Top 10 Best Bachelor Party Activities In Los Angeles

Headed to Los Angeles 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.

Southern California is known for its almost year-round pleasant weather that draws visitors seeking to escape the colder climates of their hometowns; many of its residents are transplants to the state who once upon a time visited from parts of the U.S. further north or east – 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 endless array of recreational and entertainment options has drawn nearly 13 million residents to metro Los Angeles, 4 million of which live within the city boundaries of L.A., which is the state’s economic center and largest city.

The L.A that out-of-town visitors – 48 million a year! – want to see is most likely the “Hollywood / Venice Beach” one: steamy summer temps, laid-back chill vibes, sheer opulence, fast money, fashionably glamorous 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 Angelenos surely play that fiddle in harmonious tune, because more tourists visiting SoCal will 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 The City of Angels as his 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 L.A..  As you start your bachelor party activities search, you know you’re not totally a lost puppy – a handful of you may have partied out on the West Coast 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 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 L.A. 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 L.A. 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); $5-100 (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-11:15PM (avoid long lines and waits)

Seems predictable, but sorry not sorry gents: the activity of nightclubbing HAS to be #1 and #1A on any Los Angeles bachelor party list. Why, you say? Greater L.A.– and Hollywood in particular – is a legendary party epicenter that epitomizes international debauchery; with the lone exception of Las Vegas and maybe NYC, you just can’t really get such high-quality versions of this revelry anywhere else in America. 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. Also, no matter which club you end up at, you should always keep your eyes open – this is the playground of Hollywood’s entertainment stars, so you never know when a celebrity or two might pop up at the table next to you. One thing to note is that places get packed earlier in the night – 10:30-11:30pm are when most spots start to fill up – and close down at 2:00am. To party like a local, we recommend you schedule your dinner in the 7-9pm range and then head to the club straight afterward without having to stop at your hotel to change – your night will feel smoother and less rushed, and your clubbing time and budget as well as the bachelor’s fun will stretch out further.

2) Life’s a Beach – L.A. Beaches

Santa Monica Beach & Pier - Los Angeles, CA
  • 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)

There’s a good chance your bachelor chose L.A. for his vacation for the same reason most of the world did: the beaches. The best thing about the beaches in Southern California is that 99% of them are open to the public and they’re free to access. Whether your stag party is searching for an isolated destination to snooze and recharge the battery or wants to spend a day at a busy “see and be seen” strip of sand and surf, L.A. caters to all tastes and offers a variety of beaches to choose from. Some beaches in L.A. are dotted with palm trees to provide a shady respite from the heat, while others are perfect for quickly getting that pre-wedding bronze that will make those groomsmen squad pics pop off. Some have serene and glassy waters that call for a good book; others boast rolling, crashing waves that scream out for surfboards and jetskis. The one thing that all L.A. county 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 is a list of our Top 10 beaches around Los Angeles:

  1. Santa Monica Beach – Trendy, close to restaurants & nightlife, older / international tourist crowds
  2. Venice Beach – Boardwalk with attractions, close to restaurants & bars, younger local / “party” tourist crowds
  3. Malibu Beach – Surfing (intermediate), birdwatching, upscale restaurants
  4. Manhattan Beach – Beach volleyball, kid-friendly, local families beach
  5. Zuma Beach – Surfing (beginner), kid-friendly, dolphin & sea lion watching
  6. Redondo Beach – Surfing (advanced), kayaking / paddleboarding, bike-riding
  7. El Matador Beach – Scenery (featured in many movies), sea caves, whale watching
  8. El Pescador Beach – Tide pools, fishing, quiet atmosphere
  9. Will Rogers State Beach – Kitesurfing, diving, sunbathing
  10. Leo Carrillo State Beach – Swimming, windsurfing, bicycling, scenery (featured in many movies)

3) Get Wet! – Pool Parties / Dayclubs

Pool party at W Hollywood rooftop - Los Angeles, CA
  • 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: 1:00PM-3:00PM (avoid long lines and waits)

With the weather in L.A. so pristine for the better part of ten months out of the year, day drinking is a must for any bachelor party agenda…. and there are plenty daytime parties around the city that epitomize the sumptuous hedonism of the Hollywood lifestyle. 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 pool party, Wet at W Hollywood and Skybar are the best party scenes especially if money ain’t a thang; if you’re not in the mood for water sports, wait for Sunday and hit up Penthouse or Liaison, two of the best late-afternoon boozy brunch parties on the planet. Between the killer music lineups, badass surroundings, and (did we mention) eye candy, these four venues are head-and-shoulders above the rest if your bachelor is into nothing but the best.

4) Music To Your Ears – Live Music Venues

Hollywood Bowl outdoors - Los Angeles, CA
  • Venue (Location): Varies by price and music genre (click here for recommendations)
  • Cost Per Person: $10 and up (depending on show demand and seat location)
  • Time To Set Aside: 3-6 hours (1-2 hour commute plus 2-4 hour show)
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 2+ hours before show opening time (account for traffic and parking)

You, the bachelor, and the groomsmen may have long ago given up on your garage band’s dream of going Hollywood, but there are plenty of opportunities to relive that dream when visiting Tinseltown. There is no shortage of live music to be found in Los Angeles, one of the music entertainment capitals on the world; all across the City of Angels stretch various lounges, bars, restaurants, and even street performers offering up enticing song and instrument to entertain the city’s locals and visitors.

If your musical tastes are less mainstream and more niche – think rock, blues, country, reggae, classical, or pop of yesteryear – and your party vibe more chill, then on any given night it’s not hard to find at least one venue in L.A. with comfy chairs, in-seat drinks, great acoustics and sight lines, and a lineup of bands playing your jams. And if you want to go bachelor party big, music’s biggest superstars perform all over the city at world-famous state-of-the-art venues like the Hollywood Bowl, Staples Center, the Rose Bowl, and The Greek Theatre… and all have suites and VIP experiences that can be booked. And of course, even the nightclubs of Los Angeles also offer showstopping live performance spectacles featuring the best and brightest contemporary hip-hop and electronic music stars on certain nights.

5) Laugh ‘Til Your Sides Hurt – Comedy Shows

  • Venue (Location): Laugh Factory or Comedy Store
  • Cost Per Person: $15 and up plus two-drink minimum (drinks start at $8)
  • Time To Set Aside: 2 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 6:30-7:30PM (early show begins at this time; allows group to go to bars / clubs afterward)

 You and the lads are experts at busting each other’s balls and yukking it up in person and on group chats, so why not take it to the big leagues on this bachelor trip? Stand-up comedy sets are bigger and bolder in Hollywood than anywhere else in the world, and two legendary venues a mile apart on Sunset Boulevard are the laugh-quake epicenters. Originally designed as “artist’s colonies” for cultivating the unique art form of stand-up comedy via family-like environments for stand-ups to sharpen their tools and then “pay it forward” by mentoring newer comics, The Comedy Store and The Laugh Factory nowadays host all of the great comedians on Earth and have been doing so nonstop for over thirty years.

Up-and-coming talent (think Pete Davidson) and yesterday’s legends (think Dane Cook) share nightly sets with today’s superstars (think Kevin Hart and Dave Chappelle) who taking breaks from their TV/film schedules to pop in unannounced and hone new comedic material. Drinks and food are served tableside while you enjoy the rapid-fire jokes, and a two-hour show breezes lightly and quickly through 6-8 comics each doing 10-15 minute sets with a short 1-2 minute break in between each set. It’s an ideal pregame activity to get you in the lighthearted mood for the heavy Hollywood partying later that night.

6) Hot Days, Cold Brews – Brewery Tour

Angel City Brewery - Los Angeles, CA
  • Venue (Location): L.A. Beer Hop
  • Cost Per Person: $69 (includes transportation and samples at each brewery stop)
  • Time To Set Aside: 5 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 12:00PM (5-hour tours start at this time)

The nationwide craft beer revolution – spurred by a broader movement toward community-based, locally inspired businesses – has in the last few years taken the City of Angels by storm. Los Angeles long staked its reputation on its craft food and 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 hop on the L.A. Beer Hop. With seven unique tours showcasing LA’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 in different L.A. neighborhoods Saturdays, but the guides are also available for private bookings any day of the week. The ticket price includes behind-the-scenes tours of each brewery and insights into the brewing processes that make each brand unique. L.A. brewers often break tradition using local tropical fruits and exotic Latin-influenced ingredients to create novel flavors for the most adventurous imbibers. Buckle Up and Bottoms Up!

7) Get to the CHOPPAAHH!!! – L.A. Helicopter Tour

Hollywood Helicopter Tour - Los Angeles, CA
  • Venue (Location): Elite Helicopter Tours
  • Cost Per Person: $100 and up
  • Time To Set Aside: 1.5 hours (35-45 minutes in air)
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 6:00PM (twilight / evening views of city are spectacular and skies are more colorful)

OK, so you and the bachelor know every word from every Arnold Schwarzenegger action movie and apply quotes from them to everything from coffee runs to yard work. Now is your chance to overuse your favorite quote, grab your aviator shades, and take to the star-studded Hollywood night skies for an epic aerial action-movie adventure. Your birds-eye tour of the City of Angels departs from Burbank Airport then passes over the The Getty Center, the Playboy Mansion, Downtown L.A., the Hollywood Sign, Universal Studios, and Dodger Stadium. Your pilot is an experienced professional tour guide who will point out the sights rapid-fire while educating you on facts about the geology, topography, history, and culture of one of the largest, most well-known, and most colorful landmark treasures in all of America. (We mean Los Angeles, not The Terminator / Kindergarten Cop.)

8) Get In My Belly – Street Food Tour

Los Angeles street food vendors
  • Venue (Location): Club Tengo Hambre or Avital
  • Cost Per Person: $55 and up
  • Time To Set Aside: 3-4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 10:00AM (tours start at this time)

Ahh, street food: the perfect cure for a bachelor party hangover. If last night’s bacon-wrapped hot dog outside of the club didn’t quite do the trick, then you’ll need to set aside a few midday hours for an epic “Only in LA” experience like this. With its numerous cultural landmarks and small businesses, Downtown LA is well-known for its plethora of historic and artistic contributions to broader American culture. DTLA food tours aim to celebrate both the social aspect of food in bringing people together; a 3-hour walking tour of this sprawling Los Angeles neighborhood is the most ideal excursion, and expert tour guides will delve deep into its history, traditions, and local customs… which of course includes introducing you to some of the city’s most delicious street food along the winding journey. In homage to L.A.’s deep Hispanic roots, the Downtown Los Angeles Taco Tour does a deep dive on a heavenly dish made famous by the City of Angels: the authentic street taco. Along the walk you’ll visit three taquerias and one or two cantinas and learn about different styles of tacos and culinary history and tips, while of course sampling both traditional and innovative versions of the taco washed down by cold traditional beverages.

9) Play Ball! – Live Professional Sports Games

  • Venue (Location): Varies by sport
  • Cost Per Person: $40 and up
  • Time Length of Activity: 3-4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 2 hours before scheduled game time (so you can pregame tailgate plus be in your seat for the National Anthem)

Sports is the bonding language for males the world over, and Los Angeles is a strong candidate for the unofficial title of Sports Capital of the World. The Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission (LASEC) rebuilt and modernized L.A.’s historic reputation as a sports mecca, and as a result they’ve recently scored the MLB All-Star Game in 2020 (to be rescheduled), Super Bowl LVI in 2022, and the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in 2023; L.A. is also a host city finalist for the 2026 FIFA World Cup.  Southern California is home to no less than eleven (11) major American professional sports franchises:

  • National Basketball Association (NBA): Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers
  • National Hockey League (NHL): Los Angeles Kings, Anaheim Ducks
  • Major League Baseball (MLB): Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Angels
  • National Football League (NFL): Los Angeles Chargers, Los Angeles Rams
  • Major League Soccer (MLS): Los Angeles FC, LA Galaxy
  • Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA): Los Angeles Sparks

Rams owner Stan Kroenke is putting the finishing touches on the $5 billion USD Los Angeles Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park in Inglewood; this game-changing state-of-the-art sports complex follows on the heels of the completion of the 22,000-seat Banc of California Stadium and significant investments to upgrade the iconic STAPLES Center and the legendary LA Memorial Coliseum. The City of Angels also hosts major tournaments year-round in niche sports such as auto racing, e-sports, tennis, and surfing. Add to these world-class venues and events perfect outdoor weather and the unrivaled access to celebrities, talent, and media that comes with being in the epicenter of the entertainment industry, and you have a perfect storm of reasons for the lads to anchor the bachelor weekend around an exciting professional sports match or two.

10) Get Lost, Take A Hike – Outdoor Hiking

Runyon Canyon - Los Angeles, CA
  • Venue (Location): Runyon Canyon (Hollywood Hills)
  • Cost Per Person: Free
  • Time To Set Aside: 3-4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 10:00AM-1:00PM (more crowded / active scene, plus avoid the brutal afternoon heat)

Got some gym rats and health nuts in the bachelor party demanding to break a healthy sweat at some point in the weekend? Located just 20 minutes from most L.A. neighborhoods, Runyon Canyon in the Hollywood Hills is worth the short commute and offers a variety of challenging hiking trails. We know you’re all about the beautiful views though, and with its heavenly perch high above the City of Angels, Runyon Canyon is the perfect 3-4 hour jaunt for spectacular skyline lovers (you can see all the way to Downtown LA) and Instagram influencers alike. And if you’re lucky, you might even catch some wild rabbits and other critters while you’re out on those trails getting your exercise on and sweating out the alcohol from the night before… or preemptively burning calories for the night to come. Oh, did you mean a different kind of beautiful views? Runyon Canyon has those too: it’s a not-so-secret outdoor workout hotspot for the impossibly fit UCLA & USC co-eds as well as the local women who tend bars, serve cocktails, are aspiring actresses and models, or otherwise drive the L.A. nightlife and entertainment economy forward on the basis of their stunning good looks.

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. Los Angeles is one of the better cities in America for gentlemen’s clubs, not only for quality of young “talent” but for variety as well. When it comes to the best overall scenes, Ace of Diamonds and Crazy Girls and are the top choices if you are still in Hollywood late night and have struck out at the nightclubs; if you’re closer to the west side, we recommend you direct the troops to Silver Reign. Or, try Bare Elegance near LAX if you have a few hours to kill before your flight out of town – it’s a classier, roomier, more upscale experience that’s the tried-and-true way to put the cherry on top of your epic L.A. bachelor party (and might be the last time the bachelor can get away with going to an establishment of this nature).


In conclusion: Los Angeles 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 L.A. What are you waiting for?

Miami pool party

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.

5) I’m on a Boat! (Part II) – Booze Cruise

Yacht party in Miami, Floida
  • Venue (Location): Varies by price, music type, and services (Miami Party4U and South Beach Party Boats are two of most popular)
  • Cost Per Person: $100 and up
  • Time To Set Aside: 5 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 2:00-2:30PM (allows full day party plus enough downtime to recover for evening dinner / entertainment plans)

Open bar on the open seas? We had you at “Hello!” amirite!

  • Best Time of Day to Go: 12:00PM (5-hour tours start at this time)

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. The ticket price includes behind-the-scenes tours of each brewery and insights into the brewing processes that make each brand unique. South Florida brewers break tradition using local tropical and citrus fruits and exotic Latin-influenced ingredients to create novel flavors for the most adventurous imbibers. Buckle Up and Bottoms Up!

7) Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em – Cigar Tasting

  • Venue (Location): Little Havana Cigar Factory (Little Havana)
  • Cost Per Person: Free to enter; cigars $6 and up
  • 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)

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.)

8) Get Wet… Again! – Jet Skiing

  • 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’ve seen a jet ski chase scene in an action movie, you hoped to someday reenact it. 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.

9) Play Ball! – Pro Baseball Games

  • Venue (Location): Grapefruit League Stadiums (Feb / March); Marlins Park (April thru September)
  • Cost Per Person: $15 and up
  • Time Length of Activity: 3-4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 1 hour before scheduled game time (so you can pregame tailgate plus be in your seat for the National Anthem)

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?

Top 10 Best Bachelor Party Activities In Phoenix / Scottsdale

Headed to Phoenix / Scottsdale 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 Arizona that most out-of-town visitors know is the one of extreme summer temperature, expansive scrublands, colorful rock formations, and an abundance of outdoor activities. It’s also 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 the Desert Southwest’s supremely pleasant October-to-March calendar stretch. In fact, many Arizonians 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 7.3 million residents to Arizona, 4.8 million of which live in the metro area of Phoenix which is the state’s capitol and largest city. A modern and bustling mid-size American metropolis, Phoenix – along with Scottsdale, its ritzy neighborhood that rivals LA’s Beverly Hills and Miami’s Brickell – draws year-round tourist traffic due to its plethora of culinary delights and entertainment options of the indoor and outdoor variety. Along with drawing the snowbirds flying south for the winter, the warm weather long ago cemented Phoenix / Scottsdale as a perennial destination for college and university Spring Break trips; more recently it has evolved into a popular destination for bachelor and bachelorette parties, many of whom are returning to the desert after initially experiencing its charms and wild party scenes as college students.

Here, in order of our highly experienced customer service staff’s preferences, is our Discotech Top 10 list of best and most entertaining bachelor party activities that your classy group of gents would do well to line up during your wild weekend in Phoenix / Scottsdale.

1) Take Your Horse to the Old Town Road – 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: 9:30PM-11:00PM (avoid long lines and waits)

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

  1. Nearly all the best clubs in the Phoenix / Scottsdale are in walking distance from each other, so bar or club crawling – either planned or impromptu – is easy to pull off.
  2. Clubbing here is 5x-10x cheaper due to no covers, lower drink prices, and VIP lower table prices.
  3. Places open earlier – some open during the day and stay open until 2am – and get packed earlier, so your dollars and the bachelor’s fun will both stretch longer into the night.

2) Play Ball! – Professional Baseball Games

girls at MLB Spring Training, Scottsdale, AZ
  • Venue (Location): Cactus League Stadiums (Feb / March / October); Chase Field (April thru September)
  • Cost Per Person: $15 and up
  • Time Length of Activity: 3-4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 1 hour before scheduled game time (so you can pregame tailgate plus be in your seat for the National Anthem)

You haven’t lived until you’ve sprawled out under the Arizona sun with a cold brewski in hand at an afternoon or early evening baseball game. For five weeks every spring, Phoenix / Scottsdale hosts 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 this time, it’s the most happening time of the year in Arizona. 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 Chase Field, the downtown Phoenix home of the Arizona Diamondbacks. 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 Arizona and a quintessential part of the true local experience. 

3) Get Wet! – Pool Parties

pool party at Maya Dayclub in Scottsdale, AZ
  • 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 desert oasis feel of Scottsdale, 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, Maya Dayclub and Wet Deck 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) Get to the CHOPPAAHH!!! – Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour

Helicopter tour of Grand Canyon
  • Venue (Location): Southwest Tours
  • Cost Per Person: $165
  • Time To Set Aside: 13 hours (leaves in morning, returns at ~8:00PM)
  • Best Time of Day to Go: leaving at sunrise is your only option

OK, so you and the bachelor know every word from every Arnold Schwarzenegger action movie and apply quotes from them to everything from coffee runs to yard work. Now is your chance to overuse your favorite quote, grab your aviator shades, and take to the blue skies for the Grandest (pun intended) aerial adventure possible. Your birds-eye tour of the Grand Canyon departs from the Deer Valley airport in Northern Phoenix then passes over the Red Rock formations of Sedona, the Painted Desert, and the Navajo Indian Reservation before touching down at the south rim of the Grand Canyon 7,000 ft above sea level. A professional tour guide then takes you to the best scenic overlooks inside the Grand Canyon National Park while educating you on facts about the geology, flora, fauna, and history of one of the largest, most well-known, and most colorful landmark treasures in all of America. (We mean the Canyon, not The Terminator / Kindergarten Cop.)

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

Topgolf at sunset, Phoenix, AZ
  • Venue (Location): TopGolf (Phoenix – Talking Stick Resort)
  • 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 Phoenix / Scottsdale 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.

6) Set ‘Em Up, Knock ‘Em Down – Bowling

Skylanes bowling - Scottsdale, AZ
  • Venue (Location): Skylanes (Old Town Scottsdale)
  • Cost Per Person: $10 ($60.00 per lane per hour, up to 6 guests per lane; shoe rental included)
  • Time To Set Aside: 1-2 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 4:00PM-9:00PM (Happy Hour from 5-6pm, plus young / hip / lively crowd starts here before heading to the Old Town nightclubs)

Located in walking distance from the Old Town Scottsdale club circuit, Skylanes is an ultra-hip upscale bowling alley with a kitchen serving bar food classics. Skylanes successfully transplanted the nostalgic 50s/60s retro swagger into a modern venue – with swanky chesterfield sofas, boutique decor, accommodating wait staff, full-bodied craft beers and cocktails. That being said, Skylanes is anything but your grandfather’s bowling alley: the scene caters to Scottsdale’s younger 21-and-over crowd, pampering each guest with personalized lane service in an exquisite and inviting atmosphere that is perfect for pregaming before hitting the dance clubs. It also offers guests unique VIP lounges and bottle service, giving the venue the feel of a swanky singles lounge and putting a unique spin (pun intended) on bowling as you’ve come to know it.

7) Get Lost, Take A Hike – Outdoor Hiking

Camelback Mountain, Phoenix, AZ
  • Venue (Location): Camelback Mountain (Phoenix)
  • Cost Per Person: Free to enter (free / paid parking near trail entrances)
  • Time To Set Aside: 4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 4:00PM-8:00PM (avoid brutal midday heat, plus sunset skies are more colorful)

Got some gym rats and health nuts in the bachelor party demanding to break a healthy sweat at some point in the weekend? Located just twenty minutes from Downtown Phoenix, Camelback Mountain – yes, it is indeed shaped like two humps or two lovely lady lumps, whichever you prefer – is worth the short commute and offers a variety of challenging hiking trails, and world-class climbing. We know you’re all about the picturesque views though, and Camelback is the perfect half-day trip for nature/photography lovers and Instagram influencers alike. If you’re lucky, you might even see some wild rabbits and other critters while you’re out on those trails getting your exercise on and sweating out the night before… or preemptively burning calories for the night to come. Oh, you meant a different kind of beautiful views? Camelback has those too: it’s a not-so-secret outdoor workout hotspot for the impossibly fit ASU and U of Arizona co-eds and local women who tend bars, serve cocktails, or otherwise drive the Phoenix nightlife economy on the basis of their stunning good looks.

8) Hold ‘Em or Fold ‘Em – Poker Lessons

Talking Stick Casino Poker Room, Phoenix, AZ
  • Venue (Location): Poker Room @ Talking Stick Resort & Casino
  • Cost Per Person: ~$10/hour to tip dealer, plus $100-200 poker chips buy-in
  • Time To Set Aside: 2-3 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 2:00PM-6:00PM (less crowded plus good post-lunch activity)

For a bachelor party group that enjoys partaking in games of chance – or just doesn’t want to venture outdoors into the searing midday desert heat – a group game of poker could be what the doctor ordered. It’s common Arizonian locals knowledge that Talking Stick Casino is one of the best Native American casinos in America and has arguably the best poker room in the state. At over 5,000 square feet and featuring 47 high-quality tables and 16 pristine flat-screen TVs for live sports viewing, the Talking Stick poker room has ample space to cordon off a private table plus card dealer for the bachelor and his rounders. Drinks and food may be ordered while playing cards, and for a modest gratuity you can enlist a staff member – or one of the poker pros that hang out here – to teach the novices in your group the basics of classic game like Texas Hold ‘Em or an exotic format like Pot-Limit Omaha. Added bonus: when the cards run dry for any of the fish in your group, you’re just a few steps away from a much needed release from the cards: a cool dip in Talking Stick’s upscale and upbeat Release Pool.

9) Ride ‘Em Cowboy – Rodeo / Bull Riding

  • Venue (Location): Buffalo Chip Saloon & Steakhouse (Cave Creek, AZ – 45-minutes north of Scottsdale)
  • Cost Per Person: Free to enter (Dinner / drinks optional)
  • Time To Set Aside: 3 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 6:00PM-10:00PM on Fridays (dinner plus live bull-riding shows)

Is your bachelor a good ol’ country boy? Deep in the heart of Tex… – ahem, Arizona – is a rodeo-themed gem of a drinking post that draws country lovers from all over the Four Corners region. A renowned steakhouse and a cowpoke watering hole voted “Best Country Bar in Phoenix” by the Phoenix New Times in 2019, Buffalo Chip is a sprawling open-air backyard barbecue scene featuring a DJ booth blasting country favorites and big screen TVs lining multiple bars. However, its crown jewel – or is it its shiny, oversized belt buckle? – is its live bullriding pen, which on Fridays showcases rodeo activities and bull rides by local cowboys and ranch hands… and even ballsy tourists looking for the ultimate 8-second (or less) thrill. Get on up, squeeze tight, pull the bull rope, and lean back for the greatest ride of your life… getting bucked will never feel so good, especially if you’ve already had a few shots at the bar to work up that liquid cowboy courage. Giddy up!

10) Kick Up Desert Dust – Dune Buggies

  • Venue: Arizona Outdoor Fun (greater Phoenix)
  • Cost Per Person: $75
  • Time To Set Aside: 4-5 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 9:00AM-12:00PM (to ensure you return early enough to rest, shower, and grab a bite before going out)

If the bachelor party is looking for less chill and more thrill, then there are a handful of daytime activities that require participants to sign a Death or Dismemberment waiver. Dune buggies and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) are one of these unforgettable heart-pounding experiences: you careen through the Sonoran Desert in one-person or two-person dune buggies, holding onto your camera phone with one hand and holding on for dear life with the other. You can do a leisurely tour through the desert, or true adrenaline junkies can opt for a bumpier, twistier, more adrenaline-filled course – including a gun-firing session at. a desert shooting range – to get your blood flowing, and sweating out the toxins from last night. Because the answer to “But did you die?” in reference to any bachelor party trip should always be “Almost!”

Bonus Activity: Strip Clubs

Skin Cabaret, Scottsdale, AZ
  • 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. Scottsdale 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, Skin Cabaret is the #1 choice as much in daytime as it is at night; it’s also close to Old Town Scottsdale so the best choice after you’ve struck out at the nightclubs. If you are willing to hoof it further, route the herd to Bourbon Street near Phoenix Airport for a classier, roomier, more upscale experience that’s the tried-and-true way to put the cherry on top of your epic Scottsdale bachelor party (and might be the last time the bachelor can get away with going to an establishment of this nature).


In conclusion: Phoenix / Scottsdale is definitely a bachelor party destination where a lot of good times can be had by a group of lads for not too much money spent. It is a magical desert 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 Arizona. What are you waiting for?

Top 11 Best Bachelorette (Hen) Party Activities In Las Vegas

Headed to Sin City 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 Las Vegas that most out-of-town visitors know is the one of sheer opulence, fast money, gluttonous excess, glitzy sensory overload, and high-stakes swings in fortune.  Of course, the locals and insiders are happy to indulge all those “Sin City” stereotypes, because that’s the version that many tourists pay handsomely to witness – hey, there’s no business like show business!

Why is planning a bachelorette party so hard?

That’s the question that you ask yourself as 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 Vegas.  As you start your search, you know you’re not totally a lost kitten – you’ve partied in Vegas many 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?

Some of those options are cliche, but who cares: Vegas is the cliche Bachelorette Party destination, and it earned that title for a legit reason, didn’t it???  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 wild weekend in Las Vegas.

1) Make a Splash – Pool Parties

Pool parties are a legendary daytime activity that epitomizes glitzy Sin City debauchery, and you just can’t get the high-quality Vegas versions of this revelry anywhere else in the world. At least one of these parties on your bachelorette weekend agenda is a must; even for girls in your group who aren’t really into the nightclubs, the eye candy, sunshine, cool plunges to beat the heat (and did we mention eye candy?) make it worth it. For any bachelorette 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 booking a pool party crawl. 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, Encore Beach Club and Wet Republic are the best party scenes if money ain’t a thang: between the killer music lineups, high-end ambiance, 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.

  • 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 “Sin City” for a reason, so it’s no cause for shame at all if the bachelorette party wants to include a wild ride on the naughty side. Male revue shows are the quintessential way to get the pulses racing, and Las Vegas is home to the best and most unforgettable 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. Here’s your menu – Bon Appetit!

  • Magic Mike
  • Thunder from Down Under
  • Chippendales
  • Aussie Heat
  • Black Magic Live
  • Men of Vegas

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

Spas in Las Vegas, NV
  • 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 the major resorts on the Strip 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; Sahra Spa at Cosmopolitan specializes in skin treatments; Canyon Ranch Spa at the Venetian 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 betches fully refreshed and ready to tackle on another exciting night in Sin City.

4) 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: 9:30PM-11:00PM (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 Vegas bachelorette party list. Whether your Saturday morning/afternoon figures to be a calm or a crazy one, 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 Vegas, the “good guys / gals” don’t always win: villains and shady characters run amok in the streets of Sin City, 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. Have no fear, the Discotech app is your magic talisman that unlocks a multitude of crime-fighting superpowers including the ability not only to get into clubs free via guest lists, but also to line up VIP tables with ease. We strongly advise the latter option, because even a Wonder Woman in stilettos will need a break and a comfy couch to sit and rest those sore dancing feet in between her episodes of saving the world.

5) Royal Tea like Royalty – Afternoon Tea

afternoon tea at Waldorf Astoria, Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Venue (Location): Tea Lounge @ Waldorf Astoria Hotel (Center Strip)

  • Time To Set Aside: 2-3 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 11:00AM-4:00PM (avoid outdoor midday heat)

Is your crew less Supergirl and Captain Marvel and more Princess Diana and Meghan Markle? English-style high tea, then, is your sophisticated antidote to the uncouth madness of the Sin City streets… and no one does it better than the Waldorf Astoria. Three seatings occur daily in their 23rd-floor tea lounge, where you and your royal court can soak up a refined ambiance and indulge spectacular views of Las Vegas through floor-to-ceiling windows. In addition to the classic black, green, oolong and herbal selections, The Waldorf also offers a variety of modern artisan blends touting the latest new-age regenerative health benefits. The accompanying noshes – porchetta sandwiches with Brie cream and apple compote; salmon sandwiches with cucumber, capers and cream cheese on marble rye; chocolate macarons; scones with Devonshire clotted cream and housemade jams – are delectable and delivered with impeccable Instagram-worthy presentation. And of course, since this is Vegas you can always choose at any moment to turn that refined, relaxed afternoon tea up a notch with a bottle of bubbly, mimosas, or bellinis with just a snap of the finger. So notify your butler Jeeves of your intent to reserve your high tea sitting, and start practicing your “Queen Elizabeth” hand waves now.

6) Be a Reality TV Star – Upscale Lounges

Vandepump Cocktail Garden, La Vegas, NV

  • Time Length of Activity: 2-3 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 7:00PM-10:00PM (great for pregame dinner /drinks before nightclub)

If you and your gals bond weekly over good ‘ol trashy reality TV, then you know that many of the most emotionally charged scenes seem to happen when your favorite characters are dressed to the nines and quaffing champagne and cocktails in one of their city’s hottest upscale lounges. Vegas has quite a few of these hotspots to choose from, but why not go with the one that’s the brainchild of one of reality TV’s biggest superstars? Renovated and relaunched in 2019 by British TV personality Lisa Vanderpump (“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”), Vanderpump Cocktail Gadden boasts a sprawling indoor patio layout that weirdly feels outdoor, with pink-accented booths and a full bar adorned with garden decor, lantern-adorned trellises, romantic lighting, and walls and furniture showcasing Vanderpump family pictures (including numerous of her adorable canine children). Cocktail names are witty, such as the matcha-infused Matcha Matcha Man, paying homage to the Village People tune; the spicy Checkmate Bitch, a provocative combination of Stoli Hot vodka and Chacho aguardiente (a jalapeño-infused Colombian spirit from sugar cane) named after an unforgettable Vanderpump rant from Season 3 of the show; and the Rome is Burning, a smoked black cherry Manhattan laced with black cherry chocolate bitters, served tableside in a large smoking jar. It’s a classy yet inviting Hollywood-style supper club that turns into an ultra lounge “see and be seen” scene at night – a drinking / dining / mingling destination whether you’re a superfan of the Real Housewives franchise or not, and the perfect spot to reenact your favorite dramatic scenes, real or staged, from your favorite reality TV characters.

7) Do It for the ‘Gram – Neon Boneyard

Neon boneyard, Las Vegas, NV
  • Location: Neon Museum (Off Strip, 10-minute drive north of Strip center in Downtown Las Vegas)
  • Cost Per Person: $20
  • Time To Set Aside: 2 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 7:00PM-10:00PM (more of the signs are lit up at night)

Here’s what happens when the “What Happens in Vegas Stays In Vegas” mantra clashes with the “Pics or It Didn’t Happen” philosophy. Founded in 1996, The Neon Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to collecting, preserving, studying, and exhibiting iconic Las Vegas signs for educational, historic, arts and cultural enrichment. The Neon Museum campus includes the outdoor exhibition space known as the Neon Boneyard Main Collection, the Neon Boneyard North Gallery, which houses additional rescued signs, and a Visitors’ Center housed inside the former La Concha Motel lobby. The Main Collection contains more than 200 unrestored signs which are, at sunset, illuminated with ground lighting as well as numerous restored signs which are switched on at all hours of the day. The Boneyard is also available for personal and commercial photo/video shoots, and it’s open seven days a week – hours vary based on the season – so the bachelorette and her crew full of amateur IG models and influencers will have no trouble landing those perfect snaps for locking down those “Likes” and “Follows” (or just never-to-be-posted fun memories).

8) Grab Life By the Pole – Pole Dancing Classes

  • Venue (Location): Stripper 101 (Center Strip)
  • Cost Per Person: $44 (includes class plus one cocktail)
  • Time To Set Aside: 2 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 4:30PM (required start time for class)

Perhaps the last thing you want to do is go to school while on your Vegas vacation… unless it’s a fun group class that’s a perfect female bonding activity for a Vegas bachelorette bash. Taught by actual Las Vegas strippers and featured on E! News and in Cosmopolitan magazine, Stripper 101 is conveniently located on the Strip and covers all the basic movements and techniques aspects for executing lap dances and stripper pole dances. The fun starts at the Showgirl Bar next to the studio, where guests enjoy warm-up cocktails in order to loosen the limbs (and inhibitions) while mixing, mingling, and posing for group photos. The 75-minute class is chock-full of expert tips on how to tease and titillate like Sin City’s most seasoned professionals, and it culminates with a high-energy choreographed routine for the bride-to-be to show off to her fiancee… and for you to show off to friends and strangers at future house parties.

9) Ride ‘Em Cowgirl – Mechanical Bull

Mechanical Bull Ring @ PBR RockBar, Las Vegas, Nevada

  • Time To Set Aside: 20 minutes per rider in your posse
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 9:00PM-11:30PM (after-dinner crowds are larger, giving bar more energy)

Is your bachelorette a farmer’s daughter or a good ol’ country girl? Deep in the heart of Tex… – ahem, Vegas – is a rodeo-themed gem of a drinking post that draws country-loving bachelorette parties (not to mention barrel-chested plaid-shirted cowboys looking to line dance). Located on the highly trafficked Strip side of Planet Hollywood’s famed Miracle Mile Shops, PBR Rock Bar & Grill is a Professional Bull Riders affiliated mega-venue that truly epitomizes the phrase “a little bit country, a little bit rock ‘n’ roll.” Rock Bar is a sprawling, modern, 16,800 square-foot backyard barbecue featuring two DJ booths, and hundreds of big screen TVs lining the bar. However, its crown jewel – or is it its shiny, oversized belt buckle? – is its massive hydraulic mechanical bull at its center, mounted and ridden in constant rotation by buxom staff and ballsy tourists. The bull is totally female-friendly – more women than men dare to try it out, and the staff often offers free rides to bachelorette parties – so step on up, squeeze tight, pull the bull rope, and lean back for the greatest ride of your life. Getting bucked off (and having the video to prove it) will never feel so good, especially if you’ve already had a few of PBR Rockbar’s signature frozen cocktails to work up that liquid cowgirl courage. Giddy up!

10) Guns A-Blazin’ – Shooting Range

Bachelorette party at 702 Range - Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Venue (Location): The Range 702 (Off Strip)
  • Cost Per Person: $90 and up
  • Time To Set Aside: 3 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 2:00PM-5:00PM (air-conditioned indoor activity to beat the heat)

What is marriage, other than just day after day of wingin’ it and shootin’ from the hip? So, give the bride-to-be the ultimate preparation for endless years of wedded bliss: a once-in-a-lifetime experience letting off pre-emptive marital steam firing guns at the shooting range. The Range 702’s recently renovated private VIP ranges are available to reserve for large parties and come with complimentary beverage and optional upgrades such as private round-trip transportation, direct entry into your own range with a luxurious sofa, and advanced instruction and firearm tutorial from a highly skilled range officer. The Range 702 carries more than 60 types of firearms to choose from – including full automatic machine guns, semi-automatic rifles, handguns, and shotguns – as well as plenty of space to take pictures and videos to capture memories you’ll be talking about with the ladies for life… or at least, up until the end of the wedding when the bride rides off into the sunset, never to return your calls or texts again. But hey, you’ll always have those crazy Vegas memories!

11) Get Lost, Take A Hike – Outdoor Hiking

Red Rock Canyon, Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Venue (Location): Red Rock Canyon (Off Strip)
  • Cost Per Person: $5 park entry fee (parking $15 per car)
  • Time To Set Aside: 4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 4:00PM-8:00PM (avoid brutal midday heat, plus sunset skies are more colorful)

Got some gym rats and health nuts in the bachelor party demanding to break a healthy sweat at some point in the weekend? Located a few miles west of Las Vegas, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is not conveniently on the Strip, but it’s worth the travel and offers a variety of challenging hiking trails, world-class climbing, biking, and even overnight camping in select areas. We know you came to Vegas for the beautiful views though, and Red Rock Canyon is the perfect day trip for nature/photography lovers and Instagram influencers alike. If you’re lucky, you might even see some majestic wild burros or horses while you’re out on those trails getting your exercise on and sweating out the night before… or preemptively burning calories for the night to come. Oh, you meant a different kind of beautiful views? Red Rock has those too: it’s a not-so-secret outdoor workout hotspot for the impossibly fit local males (and females) who tend bars, serve cocktails, or otherwise drive the Vegas economy on the basis of their stunning good looks.

Bonus Activity: Strip Clubs

Men of Sapphire gentlemen's club
  • Venue (Location): Varies depending by price
  • 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

This is Sin City, where day feels like night, night looks like day, and you can do WHATEVER you want WHENEVER you want. For bachelorette parties looking to live this mantra and get wilder and raunchier, a late-night strip club trip is a common item on the agenda. Sometimes, those best-laid plans go off the rails – you stay at the nightclub too long, the bachelorette wanders off, one of the gals ends up requiring medical attention. The great news is that there are NO rules in Vegas, so you can keep that strip club visit on the agenda and sneak over to get your fill of eye candy at any time of the day. For the best male strip club experience in Vegas, we recommend you route the girls to Crazy Horse or Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club; if your party has more of “the girls who like girls” in tow, Spearmint Rhino is the #1 choice as much in daytime as it is at night when it comes to quality of women. Either way, a strip club is a tried-and-true way to put the cherry on top of your epic Vegas hen-do (and might be the last time the bride-to-be can get away with going to an establishment of this nature).


In conclusion: Las Vegas is definitely a place where things can escalate quickly in terms of bachelorette party expenses, especially with a few bad beats or unlucky turns of the wheels or reels.  Nevertheless, Sin City is still a magical landscape where tons of fun can be had at great value for your crew’s budget big or small… 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 Las Vegas. What are you waiting for?

Sky Combat Ace, Las Vegas, NV

Top 13 Best Bachelor Party Daytime Activities In Las Vegas

Headed to Sin City for a stag (bachelor) party soon? Other than dayclubs and nightclubs, you’ll need to plan afternoon and early-evening group activities for the bachelor and the group that are fun and memorable while still giving you the most value for your money spent.

The Las Vegas that most out-of-town visitors know is the one of sheer opulence, fast money, gluttonous excess, glitzy sensory overload, and high-stakes swings in fortune.  Of course, the locals and insiders are happy to indulge all those “Sin City” stereotypes, because that’s the version that many tourists pay handsomely to witness – hey, there’s no business like show business!

And Las Vegans (hilarious, but yes that’s what they’re called) play the fiddle in tune because “a fool and his money are soon parted” as the old saying goes.   Hey, there’s a reason why there’s no state income tax in Las Vegas: millions of visitors a year foot those locals’ tax bills via hotel taxes, entertainment taxes, sales taxes, and all other taxes on general debauchery (and stupidity).

Why is planning a bachelor party so hard?

That’s the question that you ask yourself as 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 Vegas.  As you start your search, you know you’re not totally a lost puppy – you’ve partied in Vegas many times in the past with and without the man of honor, 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 who can take all those half-formed suggestions floating around and give you accurate, actionable answers?

But apart from any clubbing the crew will be doing, you’ll absolutely need to do some group activity planning to appease the guys who aren’t really into DJs and dance floors. Some of those options are cliche, but who cares: Vegas is the cliche Bachelor Party destination, and it earned that title for a legit reason, didn’t it???  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 bachelor party agenda.

And lo and behold, that’s where we come through for you once again! Here, in order of our highly experienced customer service staff’s preferences, is our Discotech Top 13 list of best and most entertaining bachelor party activities in Las Vegas – you know, cool stuff to do when you’re NOT at a restaurant or nightclub – that your bachelor party would do well to line up during those lazy daytime/afternoon hours.

1) Get Wet – Pool Party

  • Venue (Location): Varies by price and music type (click here for recommendations)
  • Cost Per Person: Free (certain guest lists); $10-150 (discounted guest lists & presale tickets); $300 and up (VIP tables)
  • Time Length of Activity: 4-5 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 11:00AM-1:00PM (avoid long lines and waits)

Seems predictable, but sorry not sorry gents: this activity HAS to be #1 and #1A on any Vegas summer bachelor party list. Why? Pool parties are a legendary daytime activity that epitomizes glitzy Sin City debauchery, and you just can’t get the high-quality Vegas versions of this revelry anywhere else in the world. At least one of these 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 booking a pool party crawl. 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, Encore Beach Club and Wet Republic are the best party scenes 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.

2) Move Mountains – Heavy Machinery

Dig This Excavation Excursion / Activity, Las Vegas, NV

Countless friends tell you about that time they partied at that one dayclub or nighclub in Vegas. Very few, if any, will tell you about that time they went to Vegas… and frisbeed a 1,000-lb tire using a Caterpillar crane. If your crew wants to chalk up a truly epic story while fulfilling one of your childhood fantasies – the clean ones, not the ones about Britney Spears! – then turn them into a construction crew by booking an excursion at Dig This! You’ll get the choice of running a bulldozer or an excavator (the thing with the big claw on the end) and trust us, it is WAY more of a blast than you’ll think. Once the bachelor is seated the heavy machinery cab wielding the levers of that 70-ton vehicle, the testosterone coursing through his veins will make him temporarily forget about those pesky wedding flower arrangements and venue visits… while allowing him to redirect all that pent-up stress towards his Bridezilla towards harmless mounds of dirt.

  • Venue (Location): Dig This (Off Strip)
  • Cost Per Person: $143 and up
  • Time Length of Activity: 1.5-2.5 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 10:00AM-1:00PM (avoid the brutal mid-afternoon desert heat)

3) Touch The Skies – Ace Combat

  • Venue (Location): Sky Combat Ace (Off-Strip)
  • Cost Per Person: $299 and up
  • Time To Set Aside: 4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 9:00AM-1:00PM (when the skies are the bluest, duh)

You and the bachelor know every word of the movie Top Gun and apply quotes from it to everything from coffee runs to yard work. Now is your chance to grab your aviator shades, decide who’s Maverick and who’s Goose, and take a highway to the danger zone.  Sky Combat Ace is the closest you’ll ever get to feeling the rush of a fighter pilot dancing through the skies. Book the Top Gun package, then get behind the controls and – with the aid of certified badass instructor – pull off torque rolls, tail spins, hammerhead stalls, and other “just as cool as it sounds to say” acrobatic maneuvers. But don’t stop there: SCA also offers air combat experiences, where you can ride along or pilot during simulated aerial dogfights and low level bombing runs. A perfect memory for the loyal soon-to-be groom who always went to war with you.

4) Rev Your Engines – Exotic Car Racing

  • Venue (Location): Exotics Racing Las Vegas (Off-Strip)
  • Cost Per Person: $199 and up
  • Time To Set Aside: 3 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 10:00AM-1:00PM (outdoor activity; avoid the brutal mid-afternoon desert heat)

Remember the high school days when you and the bachelor tooled around town in either his broken-down Toyota Camry or your broken-down Honda Accord? Time to celebrate coming up and making it big, and there’s no better way to do that than making those adolescent fantasies a reality with a one-of-a-kind driving experience at Exotics Racing. At the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, home of several NASCAR races each year, you can spend the day behind the wheel of magnificently tuned high-powered vehicles straight out of a Hollywood action flick: Ferraris, Lamborghinis, McLarens, and Porsches, all gassed up and ready to go. As the original, best-rated, and largest supercar driving experience in the world, Exotics Racing offers a variety of driving packages and group discounts to choose from to tear up its 1.2-mile race course pushing the speed and handling limits of its high-octane fleet. Pick from over 50 dream cars to take for a spin… but only after you’ve picked your action movie star driver nickname for the day. Dom Toretto? James Bond? Bruce Wayne? The Transporter?

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

Topgolf Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Venue (Location): TopGolf (South Strip)
  • 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)

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, easy-on-the-eyes waitresses. And if some in the big bachelor group want to wander, the facility has a swimming pool, a full-service restaurant, multiple bars, several indoor lounges with flat-screen TVs, pool tables, shuffleboard, cornhole, and a stage where bands play live music on certain nights.

6) Paint The Town Red – Paintball

Men in suits at Las Vegas Premier Paintball
  • Venue (Location): Las Vegas Premier Paintball (Off-Strip)
  • Cost Per Person: $40 and up
  • Time To Set Aside: 2-3 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 10:00AM-1:00PM (outdoor activity; avoid the brutal mid-afternoon desert heat)

Let’s face it: 48-72 straight hours of drinking, staying up late, busting friends’ balls, and losing money and/or self-respect in Sin City is a surefire recipe for building tension among bachelor party members. The most efficient way of relieving that tension – one that doesn’t involve even more drinking or gambling – is to shoot each other. With painful, embarrassment-inducing pellets of paint. Repeatedly. While talking trash. That’s where Las Vegas Premier Paintball steps in: three fields of intense, colorful, messy faux warfare to bring all nerd-tastic closure to all group arguments. Request the opportunity to compete in teams against each other – you can split the teams according to whatever makes sense, e.g. college buddies vs. childhood/work friends. Or you can match up as one unified group against a collection of individual hired guns. Lay down some legit bets – losers buy dinner and dances, shots for every time you get shot, first to faint from the heat walks home – and proceed to take this activity WAY more seriously than anyone should.

7) Channel your inner “KOBE!” – Beer Pong

Beer Pong tables at O'Sheas Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Venue (Location): O’Sheas Pub & Casino @ LINQ Promenade (Center Strip)
  • Cost Per Person: $7.00 ($28.00 for one pitcher of beer plus server gratuity, 20 plastic cups, and 2 ping pong balls; use of beer pong tables is first-come, first-serve
  • Time To Set Aside: 1-2 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 8:00PM-11:00PM (cover band comes on around 9PM, plus post-dinner plus nightclub pregame crowds offer higher-energy scene)

With its brightly lit neon “O” sign beckoning thirsty patrons strolling down the prime location of retail and entertainment that is the LINQ Promenade, O’Sheas Casino has a fair share of tourist traffic wandering in and out at all hours of the day. As the sun goes down, that foot traffic tends to linger a bit longer… and the world-class beer pong tables – well-kept with glossy surfaces and eye-catching O’Sheas branding – are the key reason why. Sure, they’ve got a great Happy Hour specials, $5 table games, an Irish cover band slapping 90s and 2000s hits, and even a leprechaun pouring shooters down visitors’ throats. But let’s be honest: your bachelor crew came here specifically to take part in beer pong table after glorious beer pong table, and to take on the crowd of revelers lining up to stake claim to your “Best Pongers in Your Hometown” title. It’s a competitive but super-friendly and super inexpensive atmosphere… so get down to LINQ and shoot your shot, champs!

8) Hold ‘Em or Fold ‘Em – Poker

Bellagio Poker Room @ Bellagio Las Vegas
  • Venue (Location): Poker Room @ Bellagio Resort & Casino (Center Strip)
  • Cost Per Person: ~$10/hour to tip dealer, plus $100-200 poker chips buy-in
  • Time To Set Aside: 2-3 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 2:00PM-6:00PM (less crowded plus good post-lunch activity)

For a bachelor party group that enjoys partaking in games of chance – or just doesn’t want to venture outside the air-conditioned casino – a group game of poker could be what the doctor ordered. It’s common Vegas locals knowledge that Bellagio has the double fortune of having one of the best sportsbooks AND one of the best poker rooms in Vegas… and they’re right next door to each other . At nearly 7,000 square feet featuring 40 high-quality tables meeting World Poker Tour specifications, the Bellagio poker room has ample space to cordon off a private table plus card dealer for the bachelor and his rounders. Drinks and food may be ordered while playing cards, and for a modest gratuity you can enlist a staff member – or one of the many poker pros that hang out here – to teach the novices in your group the basics of classic game like Texas Hold ‘Em or an exotic format like Pot-Limit Omaha. Added bonus: when the cards run dry for any of the fish in your group, they are only a few steps away from making a well-timed sports bet to win their money back.

9) Ride ‘Em Cowboy – Mechanical Bull

Mechanical Bull Ring @ PBR RockBar, Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Venue (Location): PBR Rockbar @ Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino (Center Strip)

  • Time To Set Aside: 20 minutes per rider in your posse
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 9:00PM-11:30PM (after-dinner crowds are larger, giving bar more energy)

Is your bachelor a good ol’ country boy? Deep in the heart of Tex… – ahem, Vegas – is a rodeo-themed gem of a drinking post that draws country-loving bachelorette parties. Located on the highly trafficked Strip side of Planet Hollywood’s famed Miracle Mile Shops, PBR Rock Bar & Grill is a Professional Bull Riders affiliated mega-venue that truly epitomizes the phrase “a little bit country, a little bit rock ‘n’ roll.” Rock Bar is a sprawling, modern, 16,800 square-foot backyard barbecue featuring two DJ booths, and hundreds of big screen TVs lining the bar. However, its crown jewel – or is it its shiny, oversized belt buckle? – is its massive hydraulic mechanical bull at its center, mounted and ridden in constant rotation by buxom staff and ballsy tourists. Get on up, squeeze tight, pull the bull rope, and lean back for the greatest ride of your life… getting bucked will never feel so good, especially if you’ve already had a few of PBR Rockbar’s signature frozen cocktails to work up that liquid cowboy courage. Giddy up!

10) Kick Up Desert Dust – Dune Buggies

  • Venue (Location): SunBuggy Fun Rentals (Off Strip)
  • Cost Per Person: $124
  • Time To Set Aside: 4-5 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 9:00AM-12:00PM (to ensure you return early enough to rest, shower, and grab a bite before going out)

If the bachelor party is looking for less chill and more thrill, then there are a handful of daytime activities that require participants to sign a Death or Dismemberment waiver. Sun Buggy is one of these unforgettable heart-pounding experiences: you careen through the rolling sand dunes of Nevada in one-person or two-person dune buggies, holding onto your camera phone with one hand and holding on for dear life with the other. You can do a leisurely tour through the desert, or true adrenaline junkies can opt for the more competitive Vegas Mini Baja Chase, voted “Sin City’s Best Near Death Experience!” by Rolling Stone Magazine. A 30-minute race through the Vegas Dunes, the Baja Chase is the perfect way to get your blood flowing, and sweating out the toxins from last night. Because the answer to “But did you die?” in reference to a Vegas trip should always be “Almost!”

11) Guns A-Blazin’ – Shooting Range

  • Venue (Location): The Gun Store Las Vegas (Off Strip)
  • Cost Per Person: $90 and up
  • Time To Set Aside: 3 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 2:00PM-5:00PM (air-conditioned indoor activity to beat the heat)

What is marriage, other than just day after day of wingin’ it and shootin’ from the hip? So, give the bachelor the ultimate preparation for endless years of wedded bliss: a once-in-a-lifetime experience letting off pre-emptive marital steam firing guns at the shooting range. The Gun Store’s recently renovated private VIP ranges are available to reserve for large parties and come with complimentary beverage and optional upgrades such as private round-trip transportation, direct entry into your own range with a luxurious sofa, and advanced instruction and firearm tutorial from a highly skilled range officer so you can really get to know the firearms your party is firing off. The Gun Store carries more than 60 types of firearms to choose from – including full automatic machine guns, semi-automatic rifles, handguns, and shotguns – as well as plenty of space to take pictures and videos to capture memories you’ll be talking about with the fellas for life… or at least, up until the end of the wedding when the groom rides off into the sunset, never to return your calls or texts again. But hey, you’ll always have those Vegas memories!

12) Get Lost, Take A Hike – Red Rock Canyon

Red Rock Canyon, Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Venue (Location): Red Rock Canyon (Off Strip)
  • Cost Per Person: $5 park entry fee (parking $15 per car)
  • Time To Set Aside: 4 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 4:00PM-8:00PM (avoid brutal midday heat, plus sunset skies are more colorful)

Got some gym rats and health nuts in the bachelor party demanding to break a healthy sweat at some point in the weekend? Located a few miles west of Las Vegas, Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is not conveniently on the Strip, but it’s worth the travel and offers a variety of challenging hiking trails, world-class climbing, biking, and even overnight camping in select areas. We know you came to Vegas for the beautiful views though, and Red Rock Canyon is the perfect day trip for nature/photography lovers and Instagram influencers alike. If you’re lucky, you might even see some majestic wild burros or horses while you’re out on those trails getting your exercise on and sweating out the night before… or preemptively burning calories for the night to come. Oh, you meant a different kind of beautiful views? Red Rock has those too: it’s a not-so-secret outdoor workout hotspot for the impossibly fit local women who tend bars, serve cocktails, or otherwise drive the Vegas economy on the basis of their stunning good looks.

13) Set ‘Em Up, Knock ‘Em Down – Bowling

brooklyn bowl lanes, Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Venue (Location): Brooklyn Bowl @ LINQ Promenade (Center Strip)
  • Cost Per Person: $7.45 ($20.00 per lane per half hour, up to 8 guests per lane; $4.95 per person shoe rental)
  • Time To Set Aside: 1-2 hours
  • Best Time of Day to Go: 4:00PM-9:00PM (Happy Hour from 5-6pm, plus young / hip / lively crowd begins arriving for concerts beginning at 9pm)

Blew all your money at the roulette table on the first day and need to call an audible? Located on the LINQ Promenade just steps away from the High Roller Ferris wheel, Brooklyn Bowl is an ultra-hip yet ultra-affordable upscale bowling alley, not to mention a well-loved restaurant by Vegas locals (their Blue Ribbon fried chicken is some of the best in the city). Brooklyn Bowl successfully transplanted the NYC hipster swagger into the desert – with swanky chesterfield sofas, fetching waiter and waitresses, and full-bodied craft beers and cocktails – but thankfully left the NYC prices on the East Coast. As an added bonus, Brooklyn Bowl shines as a “Vegas locals favorite” concert venue showcasing heavyweight names in reggae, alt-rock, and other lightweight music genres that have rabid followings. Concerts here are standing-room only, but guests can also reserve VIP sections to the left of the stage which come with leather sofas, food/beverage table service, and of course use of the bowling lanes in between music acts (or even during, if you’re not a fan) Brooklyn Bowl is one of the more affordable ways to catch live music on the Strip and thus always draws a crowd.

Bonus Activity: Ladies of the Night… In the Day?

  • Venue (Location): Varies depending by price
  • 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

This is Sin City, where day feels like night, night looks like day, and you can do WHATEVER you want WHENEVER you want. For 99% of Vegas bachelor parties, a late-night strip club trip is a standard item on the agenda. Sometimes, those best-laid plans go off the rails – you stay at the nightclub too long, you lose the bachelor, one of the guys ends up in the hospital. The great news is that there are NO rules in Vegas, so you can put that gentlemen’s club visit right back on the Google calendar. When it comes to quality of women, Spearmint Rhino is the #1 choice as much in daytime as it is at night; for a more epic experience however, route the herd to Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club for a standard strip club below plus a raunchy pool party on the rooftop; it’s the tried-and-true way to put the cherry on top of your epic Vegas bachelor party (and might be the last time the bachelor can get away with going to an establishment of this nature).


In conclusion: Las Vegas is definitely a place where things can escalate quickly in terms of bachelor party expenses, especially with a few bad beats or unlucky turns of the wheels or reels.  Nevertheless, it is still a magical landscape where fun can be had at great value for your crew’s hard earned dollars… 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 Las Vegas. What are you waiting for?

Is prostitution legal in Las Vegas?

No.

As part of the general clean-up of the city’s image, initiated in large measure by Howard Hughes, and to safeguard the revenues from gambling, in 1971 state legislators passed Statute 244-335 (8), rendering prostitution illegal in counties with a population of more than 250,000. That lets out Clark County (Las Vegas) and Washoe County (Reno).

Prostitution is also illegal in the Carson City Capital District and Lincoln County (northeast of Clark County).

The closest legal brothels to Las Vegas are in the Pahrump area (Nye County), roughly 60 miles west.

But what about all the working girls floating around casino bars and clubs and advertised in the sex rags from newsracks lining the Strip and on cards handed out by smut peddlers on the sidewalks?

It’s still illegal. But as long as it’s not obviously flouted in the tourist corridor (such as by scantily dressed streetwalkers), Las Vegas tradition tolerates it.

Best Topless Pools in Las Vegas

As the weather gets into the triple digits in Vegas, clothing becomes more and more inconvenient, which is exactly why Ben Franklin invented topless pools. So, for your gawking needs, we now present the list of all the, um, “European-style” pools in Vegas that you need to know about.

Bare Pool at the Mirage

The OG of topless pools, Bare just launched the tops-off-encouraged Bare Brunch, because everyone needs a breakfast burrito along with their magnum of Grey Goose. We have a free guestlist – free for ladies and even ratio parties. Sign up on our mobile app!

Sapphire Pool

The first pool owned and operated by an actual topless club. You can expect things to get a little rowdier here with parties hosted by your favorite “movie” stars like Bree Olson, plus plenty of poles for pool-pole dancing. This concept combines a strip club with a dayclub – it doesn’t get much better than this!

Venus Pool Club at Caesars

Venus European Pool Lounge is the most well-appointed and exclusive Las Vegas pool experience at the oasis. The sophisticated and secluded European-style retreat offers high-end food and beverage choices for you to indulge in while perfecting your summer tan. All drinks are topped and made with the freshest fruits and ingredients. Light treats include sushi rolls, crisp salads, sandwiches and burgers served straight from the grill.

The 10,000-square-foot retreat hosts 14 cabanas, 16 day beds, 10 couches and plenty of chaise lounge chairs. You’ll find the perfect spot to catch rays, people-watch or just take in the lush surroundings.

Venus Pool admission is $30 for gentlemen and free for women. Locals receive free admission on Thursdays! All Caesars Palace and Nobu guests receive $10 off admission before 1:00 p.m.

European Pool at the Artisan

If you’re looking for a more intimate spot with a really subtle name, the Naked Pool still offers a selection of VIP cabanas and daybeds. Oh, and on Fridays, they crank things up with their Bottom’s Up (unfortunately not Down) Pool Party!

Moorea Pool Club at Mandalay Bay

Along with its “Toptional Beach”, this is one of the larger pools of the group, offering living rooms, 12ft “opium beds” at the center of the action, a 250sqft pavilion with a private pool, and third-floor Moorea Villas.

Daydream Pool at the M Resort

A hidden gem a few miles down the strip, DayDream offers up high energy DJs, pasties for the ladies who’re looking to cover up a little bit but would be MORTIFIED to be found wearing a bikini top, and very adult beer pong tables.
