People come to Las Vegas for three things: gambling, drinking and bachelorette parties. If your calendar doesn’t include one of these three things, we’ve got you covered.
Getting the gal pals together is already a lot of work, and putting together the ultimate bachelorette trip is no small task. Instead of planning the whole thing from scratch, we’ve compiled all the best spots to drink, dine and dive into all the legendary pastimes that give Sin City its nickname.
Need help getting to the next event? Our Las Vegas Strip map has all of the hotels and their perks on display for the bride squad to explore.
Book a Hotel on the Strip for your Bachelorette Party
The first — and most important — step to crushing a Las Vegas getaway is booking a hotel. The ever-expanding list of hotels on the Strip range from luxury Las Vegas resorts to wallet-friendly stays, that keep the budget in reserve for going out and taking over the town.
Book a Las Vegas hotel using On The Strip’s in-depth guides and services, to find just the right accommodations for your Vegas bachelorette party.
Popular Activities for a Vegas Bachelorette Party
Need some Vegas bachelorette party ideas? Las Vegas offers things to do for every type of bride to be, budget and bucket list items. Check out our list of Las Vegas things to do to create the best bachelorette party possible.
Most of the pools on the Las Vegas Strip have pool parties on the weekends, but the waterfront fun is open seven days a week during open season.
The best pool parties are the ones that allow complimentary access for hotel guests. Note that most resorts might not offer this perk, so be prepared to pay an entry fee.
Wet Republic Ultra Pool at MGM Grand: This pool party features several pools, a huge DJ booth and the hottest crowds.
Drai’s at The Cromwell: Known for its top-name performers, Drai’s is one the most famous rooftop pool parties in Las Vegas.
Temptation Sundays at Luxor Las Vegas: We love this LGBTQ+ pool party in Las Vegas, perfect for groups of mixed guys, gals and people looking to party.
Pole Dancing Classes
All of the city’s dancers have to practice somewhere, right? It wouldn’t be a Las Vegas bachelorette party without taking home some skills — or rather, souvenirs — for the spouse-to-be at home. Learn the tricks of the trade with some of Las Vegas’s best performers.
On the Strip: Stripper 101 located in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood is the best place to go for a pole dancing lesson on the Strip. Put on your best short-shorts, grab a drink at the bar inside and be prepared to spin into the night.
Off the Strip: Over a dozen pole dance studios welcome local dancers, out of town visitors and bride-to-be bashes alike. Learn to give lap dances, twirl on the pole and even striptease.
While the city comes alive at night, the daytime hours are no time to snooze. Day clubs and pools go hand in hand, and there are several options:
- Tan at a “toptional” spot like Bare Pool or Sapphire Gentleman’s Club
- Spend the afternoon luxuriating at the newly-reopened TAO Beach
- Get rowdy Marquee Club’s luxe pool
- Achieve legendary status at Encore Beach Club
Pro tip: Don’t want to hit the pool, but still want to party? LAVO at Palazzo Las Vegas transforms into a rockin’ day club complete with dancing, bottle girls, and loved local DJs — not to mention amazing brunch food.
Las Vegas nightclubs are, in short, legendary. With the hottest DJs, top-tier bottle service and no time limit on the night’s adventures, every hotel has their own spin on the dusk-till-dawn debauchery.
A promoter will offer VIP entry to the nightclubs on the Strip for girl groups, which usually means waived entry fees or front-of-the-line access, or both.
Pro tip: Many pole dance studios in Las Vegas have relationships with the nightclubs and day clubs in town. When booking one or the other, ask for a referral to make a custom package for the trip.
One thing that puts the “sin” in “Sin City” is the surplus of male strippers that are genetically engineered for Las Vegas bachelorette parties. That’s a factual statement. Stay on the Strip for Thunder from Down Under at Excalibur Hotel and Magic Mike Live at SAHARA Las Vegas, or go off the Strip for Aussie Heat at Neonopolis.
Pro tip: Pay a little extra to sit near the front. This increases the chances of the bride getting pulled on stage for sexy lap dances from the cast members.
It’s “treat yo’self” season on the Las Vegas Strip year-round.
The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace: From exclusive bakeries to luxury shopping, the Forum Shops guarantee that everyone will find a reason to love it.
The Shops at Crystals at ARIA Resort & Casino: This stately shopping at ARIA hotel matches the luxury aesthetics of the resort. Depending on the time of year, the holidays bring some fantastic light displays and decorations for viewing.
Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood: It’s easy to spend hours wandering through this mall. Between retailers like H&M and Victoria’s Secret, Zappos Theater sits in the middle of the action, making it the perfect ending to an evening of shopping and eating at signature Vegas spots.
The traditional “dinner and a show” model can be a relaxing break in the action.
Cirque du Soleil shows: Six shows make up the Vegas roster for Cirque performances.
Comedy shows: Celebrity comedians are on constant rotation at the ha-ha houses inside the Strip hotels. The Laugh Factory is a classic, intimate space at Tropicana Hotel, while Chelsea Theater at The Cosmopolitan hotel hosts famous names year-round.
Concerts and live music: Perhaps the most abundant form of entertainment, it’s easy to plan a bachelorette weekend around the bride’s favorite artist. Check out some of the current residencies on the Las Vegas Strip, such as Adele and Usher.
Variety shows: For all other categories, the shows range from award-winning ventriloquists to music acts.
Spas and Salons
There’s no harm in spending a quiet night on some self-care to break up the debauchery. The spas on the Las Vegas Strip are the perfect escape from the partying scene, and no girl’s getaway would be complete without a pampering session.
Don’t forget to plan for food during a packed trip of celebrations. From fine dining to casual eats on the Strip, every budget and palate can be accommodated. Note that our list is not an exhaustive one; check out more of the best restaurants on the Strip to delight in the cuisine scene that makes Las Vegas famous.
Delilah at Wynn Las Vegas: This ultra-exclusive diner from the future has incredible eats and live entertainment for an unforgettable experience.
Yardbird at The Venetian Resort: Some down-home Southern comforts await, with all the

There are hundreds of bars on the Strip. Whether the bride squad wants to rip a few shots or sip some one-of-a-kind cocktails, we recommend these spots to start.
The Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay Resort: The House of Blues holds a live music and dancing venue set against one of the best views of the Vegas skyline.
The Barbershop Cuts and Cocktails at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas: Want some celebrity sightings? This is the place to do it. The Barbershop is shrouded in mystery, while the salon itself is in plain view, just off the Boulevard Tower entrance.
Chandelier Bar: Also at The Cosmopolitan hotel, three levels of luxury await your bachelorette party. Try to visit every floor for the signature cocktails that are exclusive to each level.
Vanderpump Cocktail Garden at Caesars Palace: An urban garden with bejeweled touches, this lush lounge accentuates the fabulous drinks served with flowers and flourish.
Beer Park at Paris Las Vegas: Enjoy some beer pong and amazing views of the street below from this casual spot.
Gatsby at Resorts World: Home of the social media-famous $75 bathtub cocktail, Gatsby is the colorful stop on the casino floor that hits on every wavelength of whimsy to get the party started for groups of all sizes.
Bar crawls: Las Vegas bars are like potato chips; you can never have just one. Companies like LA Epic Club Crawls host progressive visits to several of the Strip’s dives, clubs and hotspots to take any bachelorette party all over town.
Downtown Las Vegas and the Fremont Street Experience
For a taste of the classics, downtown Las Vegas doesn’t disappoint. Fremont Street is home to more than just classic hotels. World-famous eateries, party hideaways and a giant fire-shooting grasshopper are just a few creature charms.
Zipline down Fremont Street: SlotZilla is one of the only ziplines in the city, aside from The LINQ Zipline on the Strip.
Go glam at Legacy Club at Circa Hotel: Nothing like dressing up for a night out in Vegas and taking over downtown’s highest rooftop.
People watch: Pretty self-explanatory, we’d say. It doesn’t matter if the crew is partaking in a bar crawl or jumping from one attraction to the next — there’s always a spectacle or two to witness in “Old Vegas.”
The Arts District
To visit the local Las Vegas favorites, head to the Arts District for your bachelorette party and explore this cool corner of the city.
Bar hop: Cocktails at Velveteen Rabbit, mystery beers at Rehab and glasses of wine at Garagiste all make for an amazing night out.
Go thrifting: Anyone stopping by during the day will find a treasure trove of thrift stores, secondhand shops and funky boutiques to spend hours sifting through.
More Fun Things To Do for a Bachelorette Party in Las Vegas
Although the casinos might smell like jasmine and vanilla, some fresh air will treat that hangover to reenter the party scene. Within the Las Vegas city limits lives the Springs Preserve — the city’s very own Central Park — and plenty of outdoor experiences rest on the city limits.
Drive less than an hour from the Strip to visit Red Rock Canyon and Mount Charleston, as well as some amazing hot springs and natural wonders like the Seven Magic Mountains.
It doesn’t matter if you bride tribe is full of first-time visitors to Las Vegas, seasoned Strip veterans or a mix of both. Some attractions are timeless to visit again and again. See the sites from the top of thrill rides or rooftop party spots, or simply by walking down Las Vegas Boulevard on a steamy summer’s day.
Take a Helicopter Flight
Head down to the Las Vegas Sign to hit Maverick Helicopters, the city’s primary service for airborne rides offering incredible views of Death Valley, the Grand Canyon and the Valley of Fire.
Find Some Hidden Gems
Las Vegas has more going on under the surface than most can imagine — many in the form of secret bars. The Cosmopolitan hotel has four speakeasies alone. For the perfect stag party snack, head to Chinatown for Más Por Favor’s secret taco treats, or Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den at Resorts World to step out of the main room and into an exciting enclave of craft cocktails.
Visit Las Vegas Landmarks for Photo Opportunities
The famous Bellagio Fountains: The best times to see the fountains are at dusk and when the Strip is already glittering against the pitch-black night sky.
The LINQ High Roller: If nobody in the group is afraid of heights, The LINQ houses the tallest observation wheel in the world. We recommend booking the Happy Half-Hour to score a drink while enjoying a rare Vegas vantage point.
The Welcome to Las Vegas sign: Don’t let this golden photo op happen in Vegas and stay here. Prove you visited “Sin City” and take a more wholesome photo for some bachelorette party memories.
Go Horseback Riding
Red Rock Canyon is about 45 minutes away from the Las Vegas Strip. While Red Rock Casino is an excellent pit stop for amazing Thai food and a state-of-the-art VR bowling alley, the gorgeous terrain is a unique outdoor preserve that can be explored on horseback.
A Bucket List of On The Strip’s Top Bachelorette Party Ideas
Take a limo or party bus up and down the Strip
A wise man named Steven Tyler once said, “life’s a journey, not a destination,” and we agree with that. That’s why a limo rental is essential to keeping the party going. Many limousines and party buses have dance poles and free bottles of bubbly, and will usually fit your entire party.
Ride the naughty mechanical bull
There are mechanical bulls in country bars around Las Vegas, but this one-of-a-kind ride is a memory at first sight. Nerd Bar inside Neonopolis on Fremont Street has a bull that you can’t quite grab by the horns, and it’s a hilarious, raunchy activity that the bold and brash will love.
Dine in the Dark
Opens new window
Now is the time to be extra adventurous when it comes to food. BLACKOUT is a multi-course meal experience that takes place in a pitch black dining room, with a mystery menu to boot.
On The Strip’s Perfect 3-Day Bachelorette Party Itinerary
Need some help planning out the days to come? We got you.
Day 1: Arrive and Prepare
Unless the bachelorette party is a group of locals, the bridesmaids and gal pals will be traveling in from all over the place.
Go shopping. Supplies are going to save the game for the downtime in between festivities.
- A case (or two) of water bottles
- Bagels, muffins, croissants or some form of breakfast food
- Ibuprofen, vitamin C or another liquid IV like Reset
- Snacks like chips, candy and popcorn
- Party supplies like balloons, streamers and other decorations
Grab those pregame drinks. Buying drinks on the Strip is practically required for a bachelorette party, but the pain of dropping $30 on a cocktail can be dulled by buying booze in bulk. There are select liquor stores on the Las Vegas Strip that offer friendly prices on handles, bottles of wine, cases of beer and mixers to take up to the hotel room.
Go to dinner and dive right in. Las Vegas is not meant to be eased into. The casinos, nightclubs and 24-hour Strip restaurants are beckoning. Pick from gorgeous tapas spots, international cuisine and other choices to fuel up for the evening ahead.
Day 2: Recover and Rage
If the group stayed out all night, good. We’re not here to judge. However, planning on a later call time the first morning in Las Vegas means that one very special meal gets to happen.
Brunch. Every Las Vegas bachelorette party should get mid-morning mimosas and breakfast treats. Brunch in Las Vegas is a commodity that deserves full enjoyment.
Hit the pool parties: Get your hair of the dog with a cabana and some bottle service after a night out on the Las Vegas Strip. Many parties also have delicious snacks to accompany the drinks on deck.
Grab a late lunch. If food doesn’t include the poolside snacks, check out some lunch specials on the Strip or cheap meals around Las Vegas to grab a bite.
Get ready for a show. Dinner can be part of the live music lineup or grab some fast food before or after. Either
Pro tip: Plan for a nap on the second day. Vegas is open 24 hours, so don’t let FOMO win and take an hour to snooze.
Day 3: Go Out in Style
Chow down at a buffet. Calories are essential for thriving during a Las Vegas bachelorette party marathon. Go gourmet with the Wynn Las Vegas buffet — complete with Maine lobster and a full carving station — or choose an affordable option that hits all the caloric needs for the day.
Sightsee and shop. It’s always fun to gear up for a night out by snagging a new fit, especially at some of the luxury stores inside the Vegas Strip shopping malls.
Hit one more club. Miss the pool parties already? Encore Hotel has EBC At Night, a rare evening pool bash where dressing to impress blends with poolside chic. Otherwise, opt for a traditional, yet unbelievable experience at a nightclub.
Pro tip: Grab dinner right before the club at adjoining restaurants, like Hakkasan or TAO Beach.
Want to Get Married in Las Vegas?
Las Vegas offers the perfect chance to elope, plan a dream wedding or combine the bachelorette party and nuptials into one trip. To keep the wedding planning simple and fun, consider a drive-thru ceremony, or tie the knot in one of the elegant venues inside the Vegas hotels. No matter the method, the Las Vegas wedding chapels are as diverse and welcoming as the city itself.
