Bachelor party

I am planning a bachelor party for 8 guys. Feb 27 - march 2nd

Arriving 11am. Departing 10 pm

I have Been to vegas before but none of the other guys have

Need suggestions on hotel.. Good bar scene? Comp buffet included in deal? Not crazy expensive.. Ect

I don't think any pool parties or pools are open during that time. So day time events?

Bars? Dinner?

It's not really a club crowd but I'm sure we will go 1 night but I can figure that out

All responses greatly appreciated

Hotel: stay somewhere mid-Strip with a good vibe, Planet Ho if you're on a budget, Cosmopolitan if you want to splurge.

Bars: plenty to choose from; Bond at the Cosmo, Duelling Pianos at NYNY, Ri Ra at Mandalay Bay, Tod English's PUB for HH, Blue Martini for HH

Clubs: unless you are really into clubs stay away from the A+ which will be expensive for a group of guys. Instead look into places like Moon, Chateau and Koi. If you go to a gentlemen's club then call them up to send a limo for you, apart from a tip this will mean free entry. If you go by cab average covers are $30 each.

Daytime activities: Gun range, go-karting, paint-balling, Ghost Bar Day Club

Transport: just taxi it from the airport, only $20 to mid-strip

Top-tips: dont over plan, Vegas with a group is a great place to just go with the flow. Have a 'home' bar where everyone can meet as a default. Do some research into happy hours as Vegas can get really expensive for drinking.

Do you know which pools will be open In march and does that include the pool parties?

As far as eating. Maybe a STeak house? Somewhere with drink specials?

I'm not trying plan every aspect. Just basics as I'm sure things will change.

First day I was thinking freemont street to drink and hang out. It's a weds

Cheapest way to get into the best clubs is with Vegas Crawl dot com. Lots of fun and you go to about 4 different clubs. Specials on their website or sometimes on groupon.

Cheap drinks to get the party started head over to a small little bar/gambling/liquor store behind Bill's (about a block) and they have $2 or $3 bud lites.

Freemont Street is a good choice. Cheap eats (corn dogs, fried twinkies, french fries, chicken fingers) at Mermaid casino. Don't forget to zipline!

This is coming from a guy who just had his bachelor party in June, the Cosmo was a fabulous choice, young and hip and full of good looking people. Perfect setting to start each evening, but may be out of your price range. If it is, I'd suggest Flamingo because of location or some of the good deals that MGM is offering.

You will find that it's tough to get into the good clubs with 8 fellars, so you may want to look into bottle service. It is on the expensive side, but that will allow 8 guys without any women to actually walk right into the club, plus you are treated like royalty and they will often sit you next to a table of bachelorette parties to mingle. First time we did it, we thought it couldn't possibly be worth the extra cash, but at the end of the night we realized it certainly was worth it (bottle service includes entrance fees, get your own table, mixers, and often tip). We don't party any other way now. The other suggestion would be to find a group of girls, preferrably more than 8 (hard to find) and offer to pay their entrance fees if they say they are with your group, will get you in easier.

For a good medium but not very expensive steak, gentleman like meal I'd consider Mon Ami Gabi at Paris.

Another idea I just thought of for hotel would be getting two double queen rooms at Platinum Hotel just a block away from Flamingo, it is a large condo place with seperate living room/couch, balcony, full fridge. That will make your pre-gaming parties a little cheaper if you have a self stocked full sized fridge (many of the casino resorts charge you for a mini-fridge) and stove to cook a pizza. Plus it's a great location for the price. Way bigger rooms too, you could easily fit four guys or more comfortably in them.
