Everyone knows that Las Vegas is the best place to throw a bachelorette party. But planning a party of this magnitude right before you tie the knot can be stressful. Most people don’t even know where to start.
There are so many things to do in Las Vegas. Here are some of the best Las Vegas bachelorette party ideas:
- Relax at a Day Spa
- Hit a Pool Party
- Go Clubbing
- Learn to Pole Dance
- See a Concert
- Make Reservations for Brunch
- Get Some Bomb Pics for Your Instagram
Planning a bachelorette party can be a pain, so I put together a complete list of all the best bachelorette party ideas. In this guide I cover everything from the best hotels, to the top shows, nightclubs and restaurants. I’ll also include prices, to help you can keep your bachelorette party on budget.
Best Hotels For Your Las Vegas Bachelorette Party
When it comes to bachelorette parties, the hotel is going to be your biggest expense. The average cost of a hotel room is about $100 per night during the week, and about $175 per on the weekend. If you plan to stay in town Friday-Sunday, you’re easily looking at a $500 bill.
Of course you can cut that number in half by sharing the room with at least one friend. After all, most Vegas hotel rooms have 2 beds. When it comes to suites, I recommend steering clear. Although you can stuff 5 or 6 of your bridesmaids into a single luxury suite, it’ll cost upwards of $1,000 a night.
You’re better off getting 2 or 3 hotel rooms, and splitting the bill. Here are some of the top affordable hotels for bachelorette parties:
|Hotel||Weekday Rate||Weekend Rate|
All of these hotels are located on the strip, and are some the most popular options among bachelorette parties. Each resorts has their own amenities including spas, buffets or shopping centers.
Some of the more expensive resorts like MGM Grand, Wynn and the Cosmopolitan offer close proximity to premier nightclubs and pool parties. You’ll be paying a little more for the room, but if you plan on going clubbing you’ll save time and money on transportation.
I personally like the Linq as a solid mid-tier option. It’s located directly in the heart of the strip, right across from Caesars Palace. Most attractions will be within walking distance, plus the hotel is super affordable.
Bachorette Party Ideas In Las Vegas
If you want your last fling to be something you remember for years to come, you’re going to need to plan some epic activities. These are 18 of the best party ideas to add to your Las Vegas bachelorette party itinerary.
1. Get VIP Bottle Service At A Top Nightclub
Nothing says Vegas like hitting a nightclub. Las Vegas nightclubs are home to some of the largest and most wild parties in the world. Luckily, clubbing is also one of the least expensive things you can do in Sin City.
Groups of all women can get free entry into Las Vegas nightclubs by signing up for the guest list. All clubs in Vegas offer a guest list, and it takes less than a minute to sign up online. There’s no need to track down a promoter.
If your crew has a larger budget, you could also go for bottle service. Bottle service will get you a private VIP table, expedited entry and allow you to avoid the crowds at the bar. You’ll also get a place to sit and get off your heels between dance floor sessions.
Many clubs have special table deals for bachelorette parties. For example Chateau Nightclub has a $300 bottle service special. You can compare bottle service prices at every Vegas nightclub here.
2. Hit A Pool Party
Slip into your sexiest swim attire and head to one of Sin City’s infamous pool parties. Drinking cocktails by the pool while listening to world class DJs isn’t a bad way to spend an afternoon. Plus you can work on your tan at the same time.
Just like the nightclubs, all Las Vegas pool parties offer free guest lists for women. If you use the guest list, it isn’t uncommon for the club to hand out a few free drink tickets too. You can also grab lunch without ever leaving the venue since many pool parties, like Encore Beach Club and Wet Republic, have full kitchens inside of the club.
3. Pick A Party Theme
Picking a theme with matching outfits can be a ton a fun, and you can wear them wherever you go. Just have all of the braids maids get matching little black dresses, offset by the bride who wears a white dress. “Bride to be” or “bachelorette” sashes are options too. You can also get sashes with a number of different kinky slogans to make things interesting.
4. Go Shopping
Can you really call it a vacation if you don’t go shopping? Las Vegas is known for its extensive retail shops. There are easily over a dozen shopping centers on and around the strip. Here are a few of my favorites:
- Fashion Show Mall
- Forum Shops at Caesars
- Grand Canal Shoppes
- Miracle Mile Shops
- Wynn Plaza Shops
- Shops at Crystals
Essentially any brand you can think is represented in at least one of these locations. This includes luxury brands like Gucci, Hermes, Louis Vuitton and Chanel to name a few.
5. Take Your Bachelorette Party To A Male Revue Show
These steamy shows are the designed to meet your fantasies. The performers aren’t shy, and often jump off stage to get wild with the crowd. These shows are guaranteed to get your bachelorette party warmed up for the night ahead. The two most popular male revue shows in Las Vegas are Magic Mike and Chippendales. Tickets for these shows costs between $50-$60.
6. Relax At The Spa
In between nights out, every bachelorette party is going to need to recover. And what better way to unwind and refresh than spending some time at the spa. Every major resort has a luxury spa, so you don’t need to travel very far to find one.
Whether you get a massage or unwind in the steam room is up to you. Once you’re fully recharge, you’ll be ready for another wild night in Vegas. Most spas are going to cost about $100 for the day.
7. Concerts, Comedy Clubs & Acrobatic Shows
If a revue show is too much for you to handle, there are a plethora of other shows to choose from. These shows range from magic shows, to Cirque du Soleil, comedy clubs and live concerts. Artists like Aerosmith, the Jonas Brothers, Lady Gaga and Bruno Mars all have residencies in on the strip.
Who doesn’t enjoy a good Cirque du Soleil show every once in a while. Or if your bridesmaids are a bit more rowdy, why not hit the comedy club and laugh the night away. Either way, you’re going to have a great time.
8. Rent A Limo Or Party Bus
Riding around the strip in a limo is a blast on its own. Add champagne and tequila shots into the mix and now you have something special. Instead of taking an Uber or rental car around the city, why not do your sightseeing in a limo. There a plenty of limo and party bus companies in Las Vegas, charging between $100-$125 an hour. Split that between 5 or 6 of your girlfriends and that’s only $20 a person. Definitely worth it!
9. Visit A Strip Club
If you’re up for a really wild time, take your bachelorette party to a world famous Vegas strip club. Celebrate the occasion by buying the bride a lap dance from a sexy showgirl. Strip clubs in Las Vegas welcome bachelorette parties with open arms, and the dancers love to see other girls in the club.
Most major Vegas strip clubs even offer a free limo package when you purchase two drinks (about $40 total). They’ll also waive everyone’s cover charge. You can check out strip clubs packages here.
10. Make Brunch & Dinner Reservations At A Top Restaurant
Las Vegas has some of the best restaurants in the country. So don’t settle for the food at your hotel buffet (although buffets are pretty good in their own right). Make a reservation and have a toast at the best eateries Sin City has to offer.
Lavo Party Brunch is a fan favorite in Las Vegas. Why not start the morning off right, by treating your bachelorettes to bottomless mimosas? Lavo is an Italian restaurant that turns into a full dayclub (that serves brunch), every Saturday afternoon.
As with other dayclubs you can get free entry using the Lavo Party Brunch guest list. In addition to free entry, the club also gives you an hour of open bar access when you use the guest list. You will have to order bottle service if you plan on getting food, but it only costs $500. That includes the alcohol and all of your food.
The party brunch is only open October-April, but you can get normal brunch all year round. I’ll mention some other top dining options later in this post.
11. Learn To Pole Dance
Don’t enjoy sitting around at the strip club? Why not learn from a real Vegas stripper and jump up on the pole yourself? Burn off those extra cocktails while having some fun with your friends. You’ll definitely have a few laughs as things get silly on stage. Stripper 101 has the best pole dancing classes. They’re located inside Planet Hollywood and classes start around $25.
12. Indoor Skydiving
Feeling a little crazy, why not go skydiving? OK, maybe not everyone is that crazy, but everyone should have the stomach for indoor skydiving. It’s much cheaper than real skydiving too, starting at $75 a person. Bring your bachelorette party indoor skydiving if you’re looking a fun activity outside of the normal Las Vegas routine.
13. Take Some Amazing Instagram Pictures
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, unless you take a picture. You can’t really call it a bachelorette party unless you take a few pictures for the gram. Here are some of the best spots to take pictures in Las Vegas:
- Las Vegas Sign
- 7 Magic Mountains
- Bellagio Fountains
- Eiffel Tower
- LOVE Art Sculpture at The Venetian
- High Roller at Linq Promenade
- The Strat
- Venetian Canals
- The Chandelier at The Cosmopolitan
14. Do A Bachelorette Scavenger Hunt
Find a free scavenger hunt list online (or create your own), and take pictures of each other as you complete each task. You can even split off into separate groups to see who finishes the hunt first. The tasks can range from taking pictures with celebrity look-alikes, to getting the bartender’s phone number. Losers have to buy everyone a round of drinks!
15. Go On A Pub Crawl
If you’re tired of the glitz and glam of the strip, head to Fremont Street for a good old fashioned pub crawl. Meet up with other groups on an organized pub tour, while securing drink specials at each venue. Most club/bar crawls are hosted by Vegas nightlife experts that know their way around the city. For $25, a pub crawl isn’t a bad way to party.
16. Hit The Blackjack Tables
It’s Las Vegas, so you at least have to do some gambling. Whether it’s slots, blackjack, poker, roulette or craps is your choice, but at least put some money on the line. You’ll be rewarded with either a small fortune of winnings, or free drinks as you play.
17. Go To The Shooting Range
The range isn’t just for the boys. Blow off some steam on one of Las Vegas’ many shooting ranges, no experience necessary! Take a few pictures of the bride-to-be holding a loaded machine gun while you’re there. That’ll be one of the few pictures you’re actually able to show to her fiance. And starting at $25 a person, it’s super affordable.
18. Visit The Grand Canyon
Not everyone is into the party scene. There’s plenty of other things to do in Las Vegas like visiting the grand canyon. Bus tours start around $75, but you can save money if you have a rental car (only $30 for per vehicle).
For bachelorette parties on a tight schedule, you can always do the helicopter tour for $300. Hiking at Red Rocks Canyon is also an option, since it’s only 30 minutes off the strip.
Best Places To Eat In Las Vegas
One of the things that makes Las Vegas so amazing is the food. You don’t have to be a foodie to enjoy the world class dining experience Las Vegas has to offer. There are so many top-tier restaurants that it’s hard to count. Here are some of my favorite places to eat in Sin City:
- Eggslut at The Cosmopolitan
- Jardin at The Encore
- Lavo at The Palazzo
- Denny’s at the north end of the strip
- Marilyn’s Cafe at Tuscany
