Head to Las Vegas

Vegas is a classic Bachelor and Bachelorette party destination with its nightlife and ‘Sin City’ reputation that lead wedding parties to flock there for an exciting trip. Use the opportunity to splurge on a lavish hotel suite like The Chelsea Penthouse at The Cosmopolitan or the Sky Villa at the Palms Casino Resort.

Nightlife is always the main attraction for those looking to go hard or go home during their bride or groom-to-be’s last single night. Start your night at Park MGM’s speakeasy lounge On the Record to toast to a weekend of excitement. Bottle service at XS, Marquee, TAO or one of Vegas’ many favorite nightclub hot spots will give you a home base to call your own as you dance the night away. Stop by Hakkasan to lose yourself in an energetic multi-level nightclub. Make the most of your weekend and reserve a table at a day club like Drais or Encore to have fun in the sun at the lively poolside destinations.

Don’t forget to also book a skipper so that you’ll have an expert navigator for those long days of boozy fun.

Keep the trip silly by bringing costumes, floaties, face paint, and plenty of props to make your photo stream memorable. Pack only necessary items to save space on your yacht—a waterproof phone case, non-slip shoes, and an AUX cord are just a few essentials to make your excursion perfect.
