Whether it’s overrated or not, the proof is in the pudding. A Las Vegas Bachelorette party is still one of the most requested items on a bride-to-be’s list.
We know it’s been done a million times before, but that’s the beauty of Sin City.
It’s different every time you go, and you can almost guarantee that something outrageous is going to happen, which is the whole point of a bachelorette party, right?
There are tons of options to consider when planning bachelorette party in Vegas, but this post will help you plan an unforgettable bash.

Where to Stay
Best Vegas Hotels for a Bachelorette Party
When choosing where to stay for your girls trip, usually the most important items to consider are price, location, the pool and what the rooms are like.
Here are my recommendations based on these criteria.
The MGM Grand has one of the best pools on the Las Vegas strip and is the perfect type of pool to hang out with a group.
I also love to stay at the Flamingo Hotel.
In my opinion, it’s the best option that offers a perfectly central location, very reasonably priced (still one of the best value options) and has a kick ass pool.
They even have rooms with bunk beds so you can get up to 8 people in a room.
For the best deal – I recommend booking directly with the hotel. This way you have a better chance of getting a free upgrade when you check in!
You can read my full review of staying at the Flamingo Hotel here.
But you might want a hotel that offers adjoining rooms so that you can all hang out together.
At the southern end of the Strip, stay at the Mandalay Bay for the best pool.
This is also where you’ll find the Foundation Room, a must-visit on a girls trip to Vegas.
Right next door is the Delano which has large rooms for decent value and you also get access to the pool at Mandalay Bay.

Low Key or Budget Options
Another great option to consider is renting a house or vacation rental off the strip.
I’ve done a few group trips to Vegas (some for bachelorette parties and some for birthdays) and have stayed on the strip and rented a house off the strip.
I can tell you that both options have their pros and cons and it all depends on your group.
Renting a house means you can save a ton of money, especially when your group is on the larger side.
This way you can split accommodation, food and meal costs as you can cook a few meals at the house.
The other benefit is that you can book a place that has your own pool so that you can have it all to yourselves, bring your engagement ring floatie and chill by the water in a more relaxed atmosphere.
It makes it cheaper when you can enjoy your own booze by the pool instead of paying upwards of $20 per drink at a hotel.
On my recent girls trip, we found this house on VRBO that was perfect for 10 people.
But you can also find tips and other places to book through other sites like VRBO.

There are literally dozens of things to do in Las Vegas besides gamble, so you definitely have plenty of experiences to build out your itinerary.
But if you want some specific Las Vegas bachelorette party ideas, try out these fun things below!
Run a Scavenger Hunt
This could be run either throughout the entire course of your trip, or keep it to one specific night.
And of course, photos or video are required for proof!
Here’s a list of things to get you started:
Have a shot with someone random at the airport
Find someone dressed up as the Tooth Fairy

A Photo Tour of the Best Spots on the Strip
Grab your girls and hire a local photographer who will not only take you to the most iconic spots on the Strip, but knows how to get the most epic angles!
As a built in tour, this is the perfect activity to do on your first day in Vegas so that you know the best places to explore on the rest of your trip.
On this tour, your guide will bring you to some hidden gems and secret spots as well, like the secret pizza place, a hidden tequila bar and elaborate garden settings.
Play Dirty Jeopardy
This is a fun one, but takes a little pre-planning. Basically, the way to play is no different than regular Jeopardy.
Choose some categories and then choose the ‘answers.’ Your game can be as raunchy or as tame as your Bride is.
To get you started your categories could be: Old flames/Ex-boyfriends, Favorite Positions, Bride’s Hall Pass Choices, Deepest Secrets, Mother in Law Complaints…you get the idea!
Then, based on the categories come up with 3-5 ‘answers.’
Make it fun by handing out prizes for correct guesses and punishments for wrong guesses!
Learn to Be a Stripper
What would be more fun than you and your girls learning how to pole dance at a Stripper 101 class!
No girls trip would be complete without learning some sexy moves and pole dance choreography!
The best part? You leave with a certified Stripper 101 License!
Make Your Own Fun on Fremont Street
Have some fun on Fremont Street! Bring your own spin the wheel game, and customize it for your squad!
Set yourselves up on Fremont (or on the Strip) and invite other Vegas-goers to play your game!
You could hand out little prizes like penis straws or shot glasses, have someone buy you a drink, take a selfie, etc!
Las Vegas is probably the only place where you can pull this off, so have some fun with it!
Party With Some Hunks
You knew this was coming. You can’t have a bachelorette party in Vegas without male strippers!
If you really want to go all out and embarrass your bride, Hunk Mansion will hook you up!
There are a few different packages you can choose from, but most are around $30 per person and includes your transportation, entry and two drink tickets.
Pool Parties, Nightclubs and Lounges
Best Pool Parties to Hit
Pool Parties are pretty much synonymous with a Las Vegas bachelorette party.
Day clubs and pool parties were started about 10 years ago to encourage guests to stick around on Sundays, as this was once one of the ‘quieter’ days in Vegas.
Now, almost every hotel with a decent pool hosts pool parties or opens up as a ‘day club.’
The best ones that I recommend are: Encore, Wet Republic, Drai’s Beachclub (on the rooftop of the Cromwell), Marquee Day Club, Tao Beach Club and Daylight Beach Club.
And while regular pool party season runs from the end of March to September, KAOS dayclub and pool is now open year round at the Palms.
With an inflatable roof over top of the pool during the fall and winter months, you can sip your bevvy by the pool with the girls any time of the year.
Lounges and Happy Hour
Visit the Dorsey for posh, sexy and elegant cocktails.
The Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay is a hidden gem, with a sultry, vintage vintage vibe and a breathtaking outdoor viewing area.
Go sky high at the Stratosphere and head up to the 107 Sky Lounge. Yes, it’s named after the floor it’s on!
Oscar’s at the Plaza from 4-7 p.m. on Thursdays is the place to be becaise ladies drink for half price!
From Monday-Friday, Mickey Finns has $3 wine specials from 4-7 pm.
This is also one of my favorite spots to sit, sip and people watch on Fremont Street.
If you’re staying at an MGM property you can have your names added to the VIP list at every club on any MGM property, free of charge.
After you check in, visit the concierge for all the details.
They will also let you know which types of music are at each club on various nights.
These properties include the Bellagio, Excalibur, Luxor, Mandalay Bay, Delano, MGM Grand, and the Mirage.
Hakkasan is one of the most popular choices, located at the MGM Grand.
If you’re country fans, Gilley’s Saloon at Treasure Island will be sure to please.
With great tunes, a mechanical bull and beer pong, it’s perfect for any cowboy loving bride.
For something a little more lavish and gold plated, choose the XS Nightclub at the Wynn.
Pro Tip: before your trip, get pumped on social media! Have yourself and each of your girlfriends post a photo or 2 on Instagram about how you’re excited you are for your girls weekend.
Use hashtags like #LasVegas and #BacheloretteWeekend.
You should also search the hashtag #VegasPromoter and leave a comment or send them messages mentioning when you will be in Vegas.
At least one of you will get noticed by promoters for you to sign up with to get free cover/no line.
Remember, Las Vegas is the number one destination for celebrations and parties, so they are always looking for groups who want to celebrate!

Low Key Las Vegas Bachelorette Party Ideas
If you’ve got a bride who is more interested in hanging by the pool and seeing some sights, you can still plan a low key bachelorette party in Vegas that’s just as memorable.
Grab an Instax camera and capture the sights.
If you’re spending a few days in Vegas with the girls, bring that Polaroid style camera with you everywhere and make sure you take lots of photos.
Then, before the end of your trip, place all the photos into an album and have all the girls sign/write their favorite memory or all the inside jokes you made on the trip.
It’s the perfect parting gift for the Bride to remember the entire girls weekend.

There are definitely ways to save money in Vegas, you just have to plan ahead a little.
By renting a house off strip, you’ll save money on accommodations and food by cooking most meals at home.
