Congrats, best man: Now it’s time to plan the party.
We've simplified things into four parts. Which is probably how many Hangover movies they'll ultimately make. But at least with the ingredients below, you've got the recipe to make your own.
Ingredient 1: The Room
While there are plenty of over-the-top options from in-room bowling alleys to virtual sex toys, the best bet for our money is the Cosmopolitan’s Wraparound Terrace Suite. With a sub-zero wine cooler, bar, and sliding glass doors that open onto a massive patio, all that's left is writing your toast/roast. The ridiculous cityscape should provide some inspiration.
$310 and up per night. 3708 Las Vegas Blvd S., The Strip (702-698-7000).
Ingredient 2: The Talent
While Sapphire and its new outdoor pool are tough to resist, we give the slight strip club edge to the more locals-friendly Spearmint Rhino. Order up Belvedere or Don Julio bottle service while snacking on steak sandwiches or a steak & eggs breakfast while watching the ladies do their thing on three stages of opulent 24-hour decadence.
$30 cover (waived with hotel limo service). 3340 S. Highland Drive, Off-Strip (702-796-3555).
Ingredient 3: The Club
While massive new megaclubs Hakkasan and Light are getting all the attention, we prefer the Wynn’s Surrender Nightclub for top-notch DJs with a friendly party vibe. With just-about-to-break-huge acts including Nero, Porter Robinson, and Knife Party, the club offers the right amount of cool with the least amount of douche.
$30 and up depending on event. 3121 S. Las Vegas Blvd., The Strip (702-770-7300).
Optional: The Planner
Rather not do any work? There are several companies you can hire to plan your bachelor party for you. Our favorite is Umbrella Marketing Group, who meld years of insider knowledge with flexible build-your-own party plans that typically include limo service, club table reservations, and just about anything else you can think of.
Custom pricing varies per group; call or email for quote (702-900-4864).
