Sin City. The Entertainment Capital of the World. Las Vegas has earned the right to these nicknames and more. And it's for that reason that a Las Vegas bachelor party is a must-do weekend for the groom looking for an epic marriage send-off. We're talking casinos, nightclubs, good eats and high stakes fun—Hangover style.

What Are Some Las Vegas Bachelor Party Ideas?

Everyone can find something to do in Vegas, whether it's eating and drinking along The Strip, seeing a show, gambling the night away or finding some adventure thrills, there is more to do here than you'll ever be able to accomplish in just one weekend. (Plus, The Knot Shop has some great gift ideas to thank the guys for making the trip.)

For the Foodies and Gamblers

There is no better place to be than the iconic Las Vegas strip if you want good food, good booze and a chance to try your hand at Lady Luck. Home to at least 30 casinos and hotels, the iconic stretch features everything from high-end steakhouses to high-stakes blackjack tables.

For the Golfers

There are 70 golf courses in Las Vegas so you won't be lacking for options here. With 40 of those courses within 40 minutes of the Strip, you can play 18 and be back in time to enjoy Vegas' epic nightlife.

For Thrill Seekers

Aside from the adrenaline rush from betting big at the casino, you can find other heart-racing attractions including the soaring rides on top of the 1,149-foot Stratosphere and a high-speed NASCAR race experience.

What Do You Do at a Bachelor Party in Las Vegas?

Follow our three-day Las Vegas bachelor party itinerary to make the most of your time here—which will be filled with everything from breakfast buffets and casinos to pool parties and grand adventures.

Day 1

Morning: Virgil's Real Barbecue is a great space to have your first brunch in Vegas. For starters, there's the Virgil's Blood Bull Rider, a vodka Bloody Mary served with a dry rub rim and accoutrements like bacon, burnt ends and olives. And then there's the food that includes breakfast burritos and sandwiches (try the brisket egg sandwich) and steak and eggs.

Afternoon: For your first day, spend time on the Strip. Start at the Stratosphere hotel where you can head to the viewing platform 1,149 feet above the iconic street for epic views. Not only that, you can dangle over the building's edge on three rides—or if you're feeling particularly daring, sky jump and repel to the bottom. Since you're already at the North end of the strip, make your way to Old Vegas next, better known as Fremont Street, where everything began. Play some hands at casinos like the Golden nugget and take a tour at Banger Brewery.

Evening: Bazaar Meat by Jose Andres in the Sahara hotel is a must-do while on The Strip. The James Beard Award-winning offers up playful, carnivorous dishes a la carte, but we recommend going for the tasting menu to try the best dishes on offer, including pork-skin chicharron, beef tartare and Texas ribeye. Then walk over to the Wynn Hotel for XS, a night club built around a Euro-style pool offering bottle service, live DJs and a good time guaranteed.

Day 2

Morning: Grab your brunch at Freedom Beat in the Downtown Grand. You'll get a bit of the hair of the dog with $14 bottomless mimosas and Bloody Mary's, plus delicious eats like spinach parmesan toast, chilaquiles, shrimp and grits and biscuits and chipotle gravy.

Afternoon: Today, hit one of Vegas's iconic pool parties, where you will spend the day in the water enjoying live DJs, plenty of good drinks at the swim-up bar and cabana-side service. Two favorite destinations include Mandalay Bay, which offers a real-sand beach, giant wave pool and 100 cabanas to rent. Or Drai's Beachclub, considered the ultimate pool party with multiple pools, bungalows, bottle service and a mix of music offerings from EDM to hip-hop to R&B.

Evening: Head to Chayo Kitchen and Tequila Bar in the Linq for drinks and a delicious dinner of Mexican favorites from enchiladas to fajitas. Or have dinner early by showing up for happy hour, where you can get $5 tacos and margaritas. Plus, there's a mechanical bull if you're up for the challenge. After dinner, check out what the rest of the Linq has to offer: There's the casino, of course, and also Jimmy Kimmel's comedy club, a magic show by Mat Franco, the High Roller Ferris Wheel for skyline views and O'Shea's Pub with its three bars, live music and table games, and Brooklyn Bowl if you're up for a game of bowling while enjoying drinks and a live band.

Day 3

Morning: Make your last brunch in Vegas count at a twist on the Vegas brunch buffet. Rather than walk-around stations, La Cave Wine and Food Heaven brings the buffet to you, with tray-passed brunch options brought tableside for your choosing. Located in the Wynn hotel, it's a bit pricier than the typical Vegas, but worth it for options like baked potato loaded tater tots, veal short rib hash and brioche French toast. Oh, and did we forget the bottomless wine, beer and cocktails?

Afternoon: Offering views of The Strip as you tee up, Chimera Golf Course is a great spot to play 18. With an iconic desert-landscape set up, the course is in great condition and friendly to all levels of players. If you don't want to play a full game, you can spend some time at TopGolf Las Vegas in the MGM, which offers private driving range bays, food and drink from multiple bars, a sports bar lounge where you can watch live games and swimming pools.

Evening: Make your last dinner at Yellowtail in the Bellagio, where you can watch the fountains put on their nightly show while dining on Kobe beef tataki, specialty sushi rolls (think Cajun spiced albacore and spicy aioli) and lobster carpaccio. Afterward, hit the casino at the Bellagio or hop next door to the iconic Caesar's Palace where you can have an epic party at Omnia Nightclub, grab a smoke in the Montecristo Cigar Bar or have more casual drinks at the Alto Bar, next to Omnia.

Where Should I Stay in Las Vegas for a Bachelor Party?

Staying on The Strip is easiest from a hotel perspective and worthwhile to be in walking distance to nearly everything there is to do in Vegas. Though buses and a monorail system make getting around easy, even if you stray a bit from The Strip.
