coolest bachelor party i went on was a fly fishing trip in Utah, with a couple nights out in Salt Lake City (not the best nightlife, but a few decent spots). I also did one in Montreal that was a blast, that's not too far.

Scottsdale? Is this a bachelor party for retired gay men?

haha.. guess I will start looking into alternates

Jan 21, 2020

Honestly I know pretty much nothing about Scottsdale other than its big with older gay men. Its the more affordable version of Palm Springs.

Could be a very entertaining town but I know nothing about it! (other than the older gay thing)

There are 2 camps when it comes to bachelor parties, 1 is lake/golf/ski, 2 is party drink and or drugs.

I have never been to option 1.

Option 2, Montreal, New Orleans, Miami, Charleston, Nashville,

Jan 21, 2020

Montreal if you're looking for something a little extra with your lap dance.

I can't remember, is it legal there, or just frowned upon?

Spot on. OP are you the best man or planning your own trip? The bachelor party is really about the groom. It doesn't really matter what everyone else likes/wants to do, the groom should be happy and comfortable with the plan and his buddies will just be happy to be a part of whatever that is. Some guys want to get wild and go do stuff all the time, other guys just want to hang with their boys and drink and golf or something. Do what you think the groom is most comfortable with and build a decent plan for the weekend around that.

Vegas is always a classic, though expensive. It is a lot of fun during March Madness

I have yet to do this yet, but it would be fun to pick an event (concert, sporting event, etc.) in a cool city & travel to it.

Examples:

Austin - Formula 1 Race (October)

Scottsdale - Waste Management Open (January)

Chicago - Lollapalooza (July)

NYC - US Open (August/September)

We are doing the WM Open in two weeks for one of my friends bachelors. Heard its absolutely wild but will report back.

I second Austin and if you're planning this for the spring/summer season you will not regret renting a boat and heading to Devils Cove on Lake Travis. We met some wild women on the water when I threw my buddies bachelor party there. Everyone links their boats together, it's a blast.

Jan 30, 2020

Can absolutely confirm Devils Cove on Lake Travis. We did the exact same thing. Did you do the two story party barge?

I'm a big fan of what @C.R.E. Shervin calls "Option 1"

A blow out golf or ski trip at a high end resort that involves high end bourbon and expensive restaurants is way more fun to me than getting blacked out and throwing money at strippers, but maybe I'm just getting old.

Just make sure to ball the bills up and hit the stripper square in the forehead. Guaranteed to add some spice to the night.

Head up to Canada and throw loonies at the ladies

Jan 21, 2020

A more chill alternative to Scottsdale could be Catalina Island. Nightlife isn't too great but it's beautiful and you can trash a nice Airbnb.

Nashville

Few players recall big pots they have won, strange as it seems, but every player can remember with remarkable accuracy the outstanding tough beats of his career.

Ski at deer valley and then turn up in park city... Utah

Second this, and if you are a golfer a lot of the courses in Salt Lake are open so you could do a trip when its warmer in March and do a ski/golf combo. Night life is going to be better in park city than SLC.

Jan 21, 2020

I've done a lot of bachelor parties as the last of my friend group getting married. Scottsdale can be good, tons of golf and a good scene in Old Town that can be a real party. Didn't notice the old gay thing but perhaps SHB likes to hang out in spots i don't frequent. It has been some years but the W was a scene. Spring training is great there, highly recommended for a bachelor party.

I'm going to be having mine in Park City shortly, 14 dudes, one very large Airbnb, easy access to the slopes, hot tub, apres, and main st for bourbon, live music, and steak dinners.

Scottsdale if you are old and gay.

If you want trashy and relatively cheap. New Orleans is a good time.

Slightly better and more expensive go to Vegas.

If money is no object fly out to the french riviera or something far away.

I think you are selling the music and food short for NOLA

Jan 23, 2020

It is but it's also really trashy if you're looking for something killer.

Jan 22, 2020

Nashville is killer. Great food, bars with live music, Predator's arena, Titan's stadium, and some sight seeing all within walking distance of each other. It's a fair medium -- everyone on Broadway is looking to have a good time, not a regrettable time..

Jan 30, 2020

Buddy of mine just started planning one there, what else is there to do? Where is a good place to stay. We are in our 30s.

Jan 30, 2020

I lived there for a couple years. What kind of weekend are you looking for?

Jan 22, 2020

Miami. Has all the golf, fishing, and nightlife you could want.

Jan 22, 2020

If done right, every man should at least once in their life go to a bachelor party that splurges on a poolside cabana at one of the Vegas dayclubs.

definitely Austin

Jan 22, 2020

Went to one Bach in Austin last year and it was a blast. Great bar scene, and its cheap compared to NYC, plus renting a boat on Lake Travis is fantastic.

I just responded to another post above about Lake Travis - Devils Cove was amazing when we went.

Jan 22, 2020

For something different, white water rafting in West Virginia and come back to the base camp for grilling, beers, and live music. https://adventuresonthegorge.com/adventures/whitew...

Everyone's ultimate bachelor party is going to differ. It depends on what the groom is interested in, their budget, and what won't piss off the fiance (hopefully he found a girl who doesn't care). However, it ALSO depends on the 4-10 guys's interests, as they're going to come no matter what and you don't want to show them a bad time.

So here's a list sorted by what you want the trip to focus on:

I want to drink my face off, throw money at the tables, and hit the strip club
-Best choice: Vegas
-Budget option: New Orleans
-Lite version / "I suck at planning": Miami

International, but close
-Best option: Colombia (really hot right now)
-Off the wall: Iceland
-I want to re-live spring break: Cabo

I want to drink my face off, vibe at dive bars, hear some live music
-Best option: Nashville
-Depending on time of year: Austin

I want to drink my face off, but we're classy finance bitches and love rose
-Best option: Hamptons
-Alternative: Nantucket
-The New Orleans of this category: Charleston

I want to ski all day and drink my face off apres-ski
-Best: Vail / Aspen
-I'm just here for the skiing and whiskey: Steamboat
-Avoid: Park City (my absolute favorite for skiing, but the night-life scene is non-existent, only 1 liquor store in the whole county)

I love to golf, and want to enjoy a fine glass of chardonnay and snif farts after 36
-Gay men: Scottsdale
-Other: Monterrey
-Plenty of other options, maybe plan around a tournament?

I like to do outdoorsy shit
-I can't really help out here
-The token WSO liberal recommends West Virginia. I'm sure your boys from NYC will all love that

MS cause Miami is actually the superior city to buy bottles/hit the strip club in out of the 3 listed in option 1 without a doubt.

Jan 23, 2020

Over Vegas? Not even close. The best hotels, clubs, casinos and strip joints are miles apart. It's a fun city but a logistical nightmare if you're trying to squeeze it all into a night

The Real Donnie Azoff:

-Off the wall: Iceland

Interesting and intriguing. Didn't see that coming. Tell me more.

Jan 23, 2020

I went on two last year: Scottsdale and Ocean City, MD

Scottsdale was awesome from the perspective of the numerous high quality golf courses and fun nightlife scene in old town. Most of the crew on this trip were serious golfers so it made sense to go somewhere with good links. Lots of good mexican food and some decent steak places to throw in the mix as well.

Ocean City was just about the trashiest place I have ever been in the lower 48 but even in the face of that, some good golf, a casino nearby, tons of day drinking spots and fun bars at night made it enjoyable. Also crushing bushels of crabs with the boys, that was a first.

The usual suspects have already been named but some other places to consider:
- Awesome skiing/fun town: Telluride, CO
- Ridiculous golf/outdoor activities: Black Jack's Crossing at Lajitas, TX

If you are young ''before 30'' go to Miami or Las Vegas! Drugs, strippers, casino and a lot of good stuffs for money spending

Jan 27, 2020

NYC or Vegas, depending where you're based. Baja California if you're in LA and broke.

Jan 27, 2020

Why just the U.S.? That's boring. Latin America is where it's at for comprehensive enjoyment.

Jan 27, 2020

Boring I know but I want everyone to be able to afford the trip brotha

Jan 27, 2020

Most of latin america is comically cheap. Doing a trip to Mexico, Columbia, Argentina etc are all materially more cost effective pp than doing anything of the same caliber in Vegas/Miami.

Go to Vegas. Get hammered. Put a tiger in your bathroom, pull out your tooth, kidnap a baby, marry a stripper, get in a fight with Mike Tyson, lose the groom.

Jan 27, 2020

Any thoughts or recommendations on Atlanta? Have a buddy leaning towards that this summer and I'm not sure why.

Any thoughts or recommendations on Atlanta? Have a buddy leaning towards that this summer and I'm not sure why.

One of the biggest strip club capitals of the country

It's a great city, with tons of great restaurants but I'm not sure about it being a destination bachelor party spot when there are more urban places (NYC) or tropical places (California coast) that exist.

Also, @ironnchef is spot on - summer isn't the best time to be hanging out in Georgia

Jan 27, 2020

negative ghost-rider....HotLanta...is way too hot in the summer...and not really that fun.

A strong summer contender missing on this list is Dewey Beach Jamfest in Delaware. A bunch of great cover bands playing at indoor/outdoor venues for super cheap ($10 cover)...lots of girls/bachelorette parties drinking and dancing...

During the day, goto the beach and bring out the gunshow

At night, goto TheStarboard and drink Orange Crush and Grapefruit Crush

Dance and meet girls at
-Bottle & Cork
-Rusty Rudder

Test your skills...use your man skills to attract the female population...this is what bachelor parties are for.

Thanks for the responses, I think he is doing it in part to accommodate a family member. I like some restaurants there and have heard some good things on a couple breweries, so we'll see. At least I'm a Braves fan hopefully we'll catch a game.

Jan 27, 2020

That's fair. If you can get him to bump it to spring at least there is a lot of good golf and other outdoor activities and again, good food.

Jan 30, 2020

Vegas or Miami you'll have stories to talk about until you travel outside of the U.S.

Feb 5, 2020

Cabo, Puerto Rico, Colombia

Whistler, Tahoe
