Vegas Bachelorrete Party Picking a Hotel

hotels to stay at in vegas for bachelorette party

You have a lot of options when it comes to places to stay in Las Vegas, gaming or non-gaming, on or off the Strip, major resort or retro hip motel. The great thing about Vegas is that there is a hotel for every budget and personal style!

Here are a few great hotel options on and near the Strip broken down by category.

Luxe $$$$

cosmopolitan las vegas

Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas featuring rooms with balconies.

The Cosmopolitan

The Cosmo is still the hottest property on the Strip, without question. From their stellar contemporary art collection found throughout the property to the trendiest and most stylish collection of shops and restaurants on the Strip, you have an amazing Vegas weekend without ever leaving your hotel.

For the ultimate experience, book a Wraparound Terrace Suite with a view of the Bellagio fountains.

Aria hotel is great for vegas parties

ARIA Resort & Casino

The AAA Five Diamond ARIA resort is another one of the hottest properties on the Strip, thanks to its excellent massive spa, top-tier nightlife at JEWEL Nightclub, and ultra-trendy dining at CATCH, Bardot Brasserie, and Herringbone. Book a Corner Suite Strip View for a jaw-dropping view.

Wynn Pool Las Vegas

The Wynn Las Vegas

No one does luxury quite like the Wynn, and staying here means you are already in the heart of the hottest day- and nightlife, most exquisite dining, and highest of the high-end shopping. Live the “Suite Life” for the ultimate in Wynn luxury as only Wynn can.

Explore the Wynn

Mid-Range $$$

Palms Casino Resort

Have you seen the new Palms??? After nearly a $1 billion dollar renovation—yes, with a “b”—the fully revamped Palms has officially become one of the hottest hotels in Vegas, and it’s just a quick Lyft from the Strip.

For dining, nightlife, entertainment, Instagrammable public art…seriously, ALL of it, the Palms is punching WAY above its class, and regular rooms and suites are still solidly less sticker-shock-worthy than the “luxe” options…unless, of course, you’re talking about the $100,000-a-night Damien Hirst-designed suite. Maybe don’t book that one.

The Cromwell in Las Vegas

The Cromwell

Situated on the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo, the Cromwell is located in the heart of the Strip, and is an ultra-stylish retreat that’s a bit more affordable. The upscale restaurant Giada and rooftop nightclub Drai’s both boast some of the absolute best Strip views, and are also some of the hottest places to see and be seen.

mirage vegas hotel for bachelorette parties

The Mirage Casino holds a nightly eruption of its famous volcano. See it at least once while you’re in Vegas! Via Instagram: @themiragelv.

The Mirage

Don’t overlook this center-Strip property: it may be one of the older hotels now, but it still has a lot to offer, including comfortable rooms and stylish suites.

There is also great entertainment on-property, including Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox Hideaway, The Beatles LOVE from Cirque du Soleil, Terry Fator, and definitely don’t miss the Secret Garden & Dolphin Habitat (formerly Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden, and still plenty of tigers!). Tom Colicchio’s Heritage Steak is also an excellent steakhouse.

Explore Mirage

Fun and Affordable $$

New York New York

New York New York is a great option for people who would rather spend their money on experiences rather than lodging.

Located next to the Park Vegas, an outdoor dining and entertainment district anchored by T-Mobile Arena and the Park Theatre, New York New York is full of solid dining options and great entertainment—Cirque’s Zumanity is one of the sexiest shows on the Strip, and the Big Apple Coaster is always fun—with easy access to everything on offer next door at the Park MGM (Eataly, Best Friend, Bavette’s, NoMad).

Plus, the Disney-esque New York theme, including the Brooklyn Bridge out front, is just fun!

TI – Treasure Island

Ballin’ on a budget? Treasure Island has you covered! It is one of the only properties left on the Strip that offers free self-parking, and the rooms are super-affordable on top of it. For overall value, TI is it.

Explore TI or Book at Room

Luxor

Something about the Luxor’s Egyptian theme never gets old, despite being “ancient” (insert LOLs here!), probably because the Luxor is still one of the most recognizable and iconic places on the Strip.

There are a lot of great shows to see at the Luxor, like Blue Man Group and Carrot Top (seriously), and it’s also dirt cheap to stay here.

Get Outside

Red Rock Canyon in Las Vegas

Explore Red Rock Canyon in Las Vegas.

Hiking in the Red Rock National Conservation Area

Many Vegas visitors don’t realize that Las Vegas is also an outdoors enthusiast’s paradise in addition to being the Entertainment Capital of the World. Red Rock National Conservation Area is only 30 minutes from the Strip and offers world-class hiking and climbing opportunities, as well as horseback riding, trail running, and mountain biking.

If you want to get outside but not, like, OUTSIDE outside, consider a tour in a Pink Jeep or a three-wheel scooter car.

Vegas Bachelorrete PartyWhere to Eat

places to eat bachelorette party

From pretty much ALL the celebrity chefs to Vegas’s local rising culinary stars and a truly fantastic Chinatown, Vegas dining is the best it has ever been and is only getting better! Check out these spots for the full Vegas food and drink experience.

Breakfast and Brunch

Lavo Weekend Party Brunch

Lavo’s “Endless Italian Brunch Buffet” is now the stuff of Vegas legend. This is THE party brunch to hit up when you’re in Vegas: a place where bottomless booze brunch meets day club for peak daytime debauchery.

Explore Lavo Brunch

Bardot Brasserie

For something a little less day club, the “Everlasting Rosé Brunch” at Bardot Brasserie is an upscale option with delectable French dishes that still delivers on the bottomless booze promise.

Brunch Tour with Lip Smacking Foodie Tours

One of the best ways to experience Las Vegas’s robust and diverse food scene is on a tour with Lip Smacking Foodie Tours, and their brunch tour is one of the best! You’ll hit three popular brunch spots on the Strip—including Bardot—with food and cocktails at each venue, all in one gloriously gluttonous morning.

Lunch

Downtown Terrace

If you’ve ever rued the fact that bottomless brunch is only on weekend, Downtown Terrace is the spot for you. They offer bottomless drinks for two hours open to close seven days a week with the purchase of an entrée (with a two hour limit).

Eataly

The Italian food theme park that is Eataly is a great place to hit for lunch, when there are fewer people (it is not uncommon for there to be a line stretching into the Park MGM just to get inside the marketplace on weekend evenings) and your squad can choose their dishes from an assortment of different specialty counters—pizza, pasta, seafood, charcuterie, gelato, whatever. Plus there are a couple of bars for all your wine and Italian vermouth needs.

Giada

Giada has one of the most stunning dining rooms in Las Vegas, and while the restaurant is only open for lunch Friday through Sunday, you can book an exclusive lunch experience where you will learn how to make a four-course meal (and also get to eat it) with the chefs of Giada.

Wicked Spoon

If you’re going to do a buffet, make it Wicked Spoon inside the Cosmopolitan. It is the BEST buffet in Las Vegas, where the dishes are just as thoughtfully prepared and beautifully presented as if they were plated and served at a five-star restaurant.

Dinner

CATCH

CATCH inside the ARIA is quite possibly the trendiest dinner spot on the Strip right now. While their selection of sushi and other seafood certainly lives up to the hype, it is the highly Instagrammable flower-covered entryway that “catches” the most attention.

Best Friend

Chef Roy Choi’s Vegas debut is as eccentric and iconoclastic as the L.A. chef’s Mexican-meets-Korean-meets-California cuisine. This is one of the most adventurous and FUN dining rooms on the Strip!

The NoMad Restaurant

NoMad inside the NoMad Las Vegas hotel (which is in turn inside the Park MGM) is one of the grandest dining rooms to hit the Strip in some time. Enjoy American classics in a full-fledged library (yes, the books are real) with soaring ceilings in posh circular booths.

Eiffel Tower Restaurant

Classic French fare with one of the most gorgeous views of the Strip, located at the top of the Eiffel Tower and overlooking the Bellagio fountains: you really can’t go wrong here.

Explore the Eiffel Tower Restaurant

Oscar’s Steakhouse

Oscar’s Steakhouse is located inside the glass dome above the porte-cochère of the Plaza Hotel & Casino in downtown Las Vegas. This old school style steakhouse is a throwback to Vegas’s mob era, and also offers the most amazing view of the Fremont Street Experience.

Partage

Located off-Strip in Vegas’s Chinatown, Partage is an impeccable modern French restaurant that is fast building a reputation for itself as one of the best restaurants in a city FULL of “best” restaurants.

Raku

For years now, Raku has maintained its reputation as one of the best restaurants in Las Vegas, praised by the likes of Anthony Bourdain and Andrew Zimmern as one of the best-kept secrets and hidden dining gems of Vegas. While it’s hardly a secret anymore, it’s still very much worth getting there early to grab a table, and be sure to stop by Sweets Raku, their sister dessert concept in the same plaza, for a three-course dessert after dinner.

Late Night

Top of the World

The Top of the World has recently been revamped, along with the rest of “The Strat” (the hip new name for the Stratosphere). If you want dinner with a view, Top of the World is perched more than 800 feet above the Strip and rotates 360 degrees every 80 minutes. The contemporary American steakhouse is served until 11 p.m. nightly.

Rose.Rabbit.Lie.

Rose.Rabbit.Lie. is open until midnight every night, which is great if you want a bit to eat after seeing Opium in the adjoining theatre space. This restaurant is full of surprises, including live entertainment popping up nightly. Order their signature beef wellington to share.

Shopping in Vegas

Think of Las Vegas as Rodeo Drive, Fifth Avenue, and the Champs-Élysées all in one place along with all of your favorite major retailers from around the world. We hope you have some room in your suitcase because you’re going to want to do some serious shopping while you’re in town!

Luxe

The Shops at Crystals

Fendi, Gucci, Louis, Prada, Hermes, Tiffany—they’re all here. While this is not the mall for the casual shopper, there is no better place for window browsing!

Mid-Range

The Forum Shops at Caesars is so massive and sprawling that it’s easy to get lost. Just let it happen. It’s as much fun to wander the long, meandering corridors as it is to pop into the 160+ different shops, from the highest of the high-end and everyday fast fashion to exquisite art galleries and excellent eateries.

Fun and Affordable

Las Vegas has not one but two premium outlet stores flanking either end of the Strip. While the South outlet has plenty of great stores, the North outlet offers a lovely outdoor shopping experience with many more upscale brands and is just minutes from the downtown Las Vegas cultural center.

Drinks and Nightlife vegas bachelorette party

You’re in Las Vegas for a bachelorette party, so it goes without saying that you’re probably going to be doing some clubbing and bar-hopping. Day and night, there is an endless number of hot spots to see, be seen, have a few cocktails, and dance the night away! Here are a few popular picks.

Clubs

Best clubs in Vegas, Omnia

OMNIA Nightclub

The beating heart of OMNIA, one of the hottest clubs in Vegas right now, is the amazing chandelier surrounded by giant concentric rings that look they’re about to beam you up to another planet, and to be honest, a night at Omnia might kind of feel that way.

This is one of the top superclubs in Vegas of the moment, where on any given night you’ll catch a top-tier DJ like Tiësto, Zedd, or Calvin Harris headlining.

Hakkasan club in las vegas

Hakkasan

Hakkasan has been the biggest name in Vegas nightlife for several years now and is still holding strong to that title. The biggest-name DJs tend to split their time between Hakkasan, Omnia, and XS—again, Tiësto, Zedd, and Calvin Harris, and Steve Aoki is also a Hakkasan staple.

The 80,000 square-foot space also includes a fine dining restaurant and the lounge-within-the-club, Ling Ling. A brand-new, multi-million-dollar light installation called the “Hakkasan Grid” was recently unveiled, adding a whole new element of technological artistry to the five-story club that makes it feel new all over again.

XS Las Vegas, top club in vegas

XS Nightclub

XS at the Wynn, connected to Encore Beach Club, is another long-time mainstay for top DJ talent and Vegas’s most popular parties. Their weekly “Nightswim” events during the summer are always a hot way to beat the heat, and you can catch major EDM stars like the Chainsmokers and Diplo in regular rotation.

Wet Republic

Wet Republic is not the original party pool (that was Rehab at Hard Rock, RIP), but it helped to define what a Las Vegas party pool could be, bringing all the same top-name talent from the superclubs into a poolside DJ booth for an “ultra pool” daytime nightclub experience.

Each week you can see DJs like Tiësto, Zedd, and Calvin Harris—these guys all play Vegas a LOT—while sunbathing in the saltwater pools.

Marquee Las Vegas dayclub Pool

Marquee Day Club

Once upon a time some genius at Marquee realized that if they opened their nightclub up during the day with an expanded indoor/outdoor space and provided the same experience as the nightclub (private booths by way of cabanas; bottle service) and just add water, then they could double their revenue, and so Marquee Day Club was born. Dance your day away into the night, and then keep dancing to some of the most influential DJs in the world!

Bars and Lounges

Corduroy

Located in the hip Fremont East neighborhood of downtown Las Vegas, Corduroy throwback rock-and-roll vibe and a special room called the “Lightbox” where the lighting is always perfect for your Instagram selfies!

Commonwealth

This trendy cocktail bar inspired by pre-Prohibition design and drinking culture even has its own speakeasy called the Laundry Room hidden within the 6,000-square-foot space where the drinks get real serious.

Get there early, though: This place gets PACKED on weekends.

Check them out for happy hour, yacht rock brunch, and the occasional burlesque show, and get a Scorpion Bowl or Zombie Punch to share.

The Chandelier Lounge

The Chandelier Lounge is a three-level bar within the Cosmopolitan’s massive 44-foot-tall, 75-feet-wide, three-story chandelier comprised of seven million faceted crystals. Even level of the lounge offers a slightly different experience, but for the most inventive cocktails, head to the more intimate level 1.5 and order “The Verbena” or “We’re All Mad Here.”

Beer Park

Beer Park at Paris Las Vegas looks like a professional tailgate picnic. They recently opened an indoor space, but the original outdoor space is one of the best ways to spend a sunny day on the Strip, looking out over the Bellagio fountains, sipping bottomless mimosas during weekend brunch, playing giant Jenga, and watching your favorite teams on the dozens of HDTVs.

SkyBar

If you and your girls want to get dressed to the nines and be #classynottrashy, the SkyBar, sitting high atop of the 23rd floor of the recently-rechristened Waldorf Astoria (formerly the Mandarin Oriental), is one of the most sophisticated cocktail spots where you’ll drink in a breathtaking view of the Strip along with your ultra-premium drink.

Vegas Bachelorrete PartyOther Helpful Tips

vegas bachelorette party tips and advice

There are a lot of little need-to-knows that you’ll find helpful before you pack your bags and hop on a plane (and in some cases, before you even book your flight). In no particular order, these are the things we think you should be aware of before and during your visit.

Las Vegas weather

It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter.

This is the desert.

It’s dry here, which, yay for those of you whose hair suffers in humid climates, but also know that means the weather lives in extremes. Summer can mean long stretches of 110+ degree heat, especially in July and August, and winter highs might hover in the 50s—which might still be a welcome reprieve if you’re visiting from the Midwest, East Coast, or Northern Plains, but just know you can skip packing the swimsuit in favor of sweaters.

Spring is the best time to visit when temps are temperate and all the desert fauna is in glorious bloom. Fall is nonexistent here.

what to wear bachelorette party vegas

BRING COMFORTABLE SHOES.

Yes yes, you all want to look cute trotting around in sky-high heels on the Strip but know this: you WILL regret it later. Wedges are a happy compromise.

vegas bachelorette costs and prices

Don’t expect things to be cheap.

They’re not.

Those Vegas days are LONG over.

Everything is expensive, you’re going to spend more than you planned, and you need to be prepared for this actuality because otherwise, you are going to be miserable and make everyone around you miserable too.

pace yourself

Pace yourself.

This is a marathon, not a sprint. Don’t be THAT girl.

hydrate while in las vegas

And drink lots of water.

Seriously. Way more than you think you need.

use rideshare uber and lyft in las vegas

Rideshare is your chauffeur.

The Las Vegas Strip tends to function like a mirage: Places LOOK a heck of a lot closer than they actually are.

You’ll want to use a rideshare service to get around, especially if you didn’t heed the above advice re: footwear.

Cabs are crazy-expensive and known to pull what is known as “long-haul” shenanigans (taking tourists for a proverbial and literal “ride” in order to charge them more), but rideshare is everywhere and every property has a dedicated are for rideshare pickups, including the airport.

Or you can get a limo, which is also fun, but considerably more expensive!

That is It, Enjoy Your Bachelorette Party in Las Vegas!
