The Fontainebleau is a great place to start but might get expensive if you guys are planning on lots of drinks.

The hotel has a Vegas style pool area with bikini clad waitresses who will bring drinks to you in VIP cabanas etc.

At present the City of Miami is celebrating a summer promotion of discount dining called Miami Spice and all of your hotel dining rooms participate. Here is why it helps YOU - the lunch / dinner menus are set and so are the prices. If you have any concerns about expensive hotel meals, this is one way to manage a budget. If money is no object - you can order whatever you please at any of the 5 different restaurants.

INFO:

Closest happy hour to the Fontainebleau is a beach bar called Carrabba's at the Courtyard Marriott (walk south on the boardwalk) where the discount day drinking starts at 4pm.

For nightclubs, the Fontainebleau has the biggest one - LIV and a cool tapas restaurant open late next to it called Michael Mina 74. For South Beach clubs, check online at wantickets.com and www.southbeachmagazine.com/topics/nightlife/

Strip Clubs - South Beach is surprisingly limited on strip clubs. Perhaps because most of the nightclubs have professional dancers and the clientele wears VERY little, strip clubs seem unnecessary (this is a sexy place with legally topless suntanning so why pay for strippers?) If you MUST see strippers as part of the bachelor CODE - Club Madonna on Washington Avenue is the closest place. It is - in a word - grungy.

A very famous strip club at the golden Glades interchange requires you hire a car & driver or a rental van (with a designated non-drinking driver). There is a rental car agent at the hotel. Google "King of Diamonds" and see if that might work better for your boys.

Have fun!

AG, you are still the bomb.

You should also slip these guys your list of dive bars and a quarter for the South Beach Local, for some great day drinking.
