No.10 Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
You can’t get much better than a Marlin fishing trip in the Mexican sun. Unless, of course, you follow up the fishing with a trip to El Squid Roe, the ultimate place to party when it comes to Cabo. Just ensure you go later in the evening because the party doesn’t get going until midnight. Not one for the frenzied college crowd? Try The Giggling Marlin or Sammy Hagar’s famous hangout, Cabo Wabo.
No.9 Scottsdale, Arizona
Fore! One of the newest trends in bachelor parties is going on golf excursions. And with over 200 golf courses, Scottsdale is the perfect place to practice your backswing. After a long day on the links, Kona Grill cures your craving for steaks and grilled entrees. Afterward, make your way to SIX and keep your drinks cold on the ice bar that practically runs the length of the dance floor. Or head to Axis/Radius, another attraction in downtown Scottsdale.
Snow, drinks, babes who ski — what else do you need? Whistler has long been known for its ski slopes and killer village filled to the brim with snow bunnies. And the restaurant and club scene is nothing to sneeze at either. Buffalo Bill’s just about guarantees a hangover the next day. According to the locals, this is the granddaddy of all clubs when it comes to Whistler. Fun music and an upbeat crowd guarantee a wild night for the bachelors. Need a place to rest and enjoy a cigar between shots? Head to the upscale Mallard Lounge and Terrace in the Fairmont Chateau Whistler.
No.7 Manhattan, New York
One bite of the Big Apple and your buddy will be thrown out of the Garden of Eden. First, feast on money steaks at the Penthouse Executive Club. This joint combines the best of all worlds — Kobe steaks and strippers. And what would a trip to New York be without a visit to The House That Ruth Built?
No.6 New Orleans, Louisiana
The groom-to-be has to experience at least one Mardi Gras during his single days so he can live it up with a clear conscience. And due to many online bachelor party planners out there, you can now rent out a private balcony.
However, even if you’re not going for Mardi Gras, you can still create a killer bachelor party right on Bourbon Street. The Cats Meow is a wild karaoke club that caters to the uninhibited party crowd. Even if karaoke is not your thing, you’re almost guaranteed to find some party people there. Razoo Bar & Patio is another favorite when it comes to clubbing. And no trip down Bourbon Street is complete without landing in the landmark bar Pat O’Briens.
No.5 Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Canada’s Hollywood is the perfect place to club and keep an eye out for celebrities. Granville is the street to hit for a night out with the beautiful people. Check out Roxy Night Club if you’re looking for bachelorettes with a similar fate (or just some of her friends, for the single groomsmen in the bunch). Hope to catch Heather Graham‘s eye? You can find celebrities hobnobbing at trendy AuBAR.
No.4 Chicago, Illinois
Frank Sinatra believed Chicago was his “kind of town” and we agree with the classic crooner. Catch a Cubs game (hey, they’ve got to win the series one of these years, right?). Afterward, head to Division Street and check out Finn McCool’s or the Zebra Lounge. After hours, head to Deja Vu.
No.3 South Beach, Florida
Hey, P. Diddy thinks it’s cool, so how can we argue? South Beach, Florida is the place to find women in bikinis driving in convertibles, sun goddesses oiling themselves on the beach and some of the trendiest nightclubs in America. Nikki Beach Club, often referred to as one of the sexiest places on Earth, is a good place to start the festivities. Between Priv, Wax, Liquid, and Amnesia, you’ll be partying into the wee hours. For the best bachelor hotel, head to the Clevelander, smack-dab in the middle of the hopping club section.
No.2 Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Montreal is unarguably one of the best bachelor party locations in the world. Take a walk down Crescent Street or St. Laurent Boulevard and you’ll see hordes of beautiful women from all over the world, a slew of trendy bars and nightclubs and, most importantly, renowned strip clubs visited by many bachelor parties. To start the night off right, head to Tokyo Bar on St. Laurent. Then, walk down the street and head to Globe and Buona Notte for some celebrity watching. Then head to Crescent Street and check out Newtown, Jacques Villeneuve‘s restaurant/lounge/nightclub, or simply parade your buddy down the street while you stare at some of the hottest women in the world. For real partying, you can even go to Time Supper Club located on St. Jacques Street.
No.1 Las Vegas, Nevada
Sin city. Need we say more? From the casinos to the clubs to the lax laws, Las Vegas is the No. 1 place for bachelor parties. If women doing acrobatics on wires above a packed dance floor is the kind of stimulus you crave, you’ll love the Rum Jungle dance club in the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Ice has a cool party atmosphere, as does the other place to see and be seen, Rain, in the Palms Casino Resort. Of course, the best place to see beautiful women dressed up in leather and sexy tops continues to be the Hard Rock Hotel.
