Drai's After Hours: Bachelor Party Hot Spot

Drai's After Hours Club at Bill's Gambling Hall

The bachelor party in Vegas can take on several different phases. There is the “gambling phase,” the “pool phase,” the “dinner phase,” the “strip club phase,” the “dance club phase,” and the often ignored “after hours club phase.” It is this last phase that I would like to sprinkle into your bachelor party in Vegas.

The after hours club phase takes place, well, after some of the other clubs have started to slow down. People are starting to head back to a hotel (not necessarily their own), some are grabbing a sandwich, and some are headed to Bill’s Gambling Hall on the corner of Flamingo and Las Vegas Blvd.

In the basement of Bill’s exist one of the greatest parties on the strip, Drai’s After Hours Club. What’s going on inside that makes this one of four must do’s on your bachelor party in Vegas? A dimly lit lounge, a full bar, two dance floors, and the hottest DJ’s on a Thurs, Fri, Sat., or Sun night. The place is dimly lit, its red velvet, and the people look good…no, they look great. If you want to get in the door, you have to look good to. The dress code is strict.

Dress Code at Drai’s: Guys have to look good, which normally means jerseys, baggy pants, tank tops, t-shirts, or jeans are out of the question. Women cannot wear tennis shoes but anything else is acceptable.

Here’s the thing about Drai’s, the party don’t start till about 1am. But you shouldn’t show up until 230am. The party really gets going about 4am. Here’s our recommendation: Get into Vegas on Friday afternoon, check into your hotel room, have a nice big dinner, then a hot bath and a long nap. Set your alarm for 2am. Get dressed. Get your ass to Bill’s and walk up to the door (get table/bottle service) and check your name off the list. Let the bouncer guide you to you table. Crack open your drinks, call over as many ladies as you like. Have a good time, and repeat.

To book your table, call: 702-737-0555 and leave a message, they will call you back.

Gold Spike Hotel and Casino: Bachelor Party Hotel

When my friend suggested I write about the Gold Spike hotel as a value hotel for a bachelor party in Vegas, I hesitated. I remember this hotel as a smoke filled trash can behind Fremont Street. Well, a lot of things have changed in downtown Las Vegas, including my opinion of the Gold Spike.

The Gold Spike was purchased a few years ago and basically gutted. It was replaced with a very modern boutique hotel in the heart of downtown. Quartz walls, tile floors, wood accents, and new everything make this a great home base for your Bachelor Party in Downtown Vegas.

If you are looking for value, the Gold Spike is a pretty good deal. Not only are the rooms affordable, but the food in the casino is well priced. That includes the $5.99 12 oz. prime rib (with veg and potato). The rooms in the hotel have also been remodeled and they look amazing. Comfortable beds, flat-panel TVs, and other modern décor and traditional amenities make your drunken sleep a pleasure. Standard rooms offer a king bed or two queens, but for downtown, I recommend you shoot for the stars and get a King Suite or a Queen Suite. You get quite a bit more room for your hotel party.

Again, I suggest the Gold Spike for your downtown bachelor party in Vegas. You are only a block from Fremont Street and if you do want to hit the strip, you are freeway close (about a $20 cab ride). You can also take the Deuce from downtown to the strip for $3 (for a 2-hour bus pass).

Overall, the Gold Spike was a nice surprise and I can easily suggest you check it out as your downtown bachelor party destination. To book your room, check out the Gold Spike website: http://www.goldspike.com

Tao Pool Party at the Venetian: Bachelor Party Pool

The Venetian is a fantastic hotel. The lobby is amazing, there are some great restaurants, it’s got one of the hottest clubs on the strip, and one of the hottest pools in Las Vegas, TAO Beach.

TAO Beach is a top-optional pool (adults only) and that is one reason it makes our list of Bachelor Party in Vegas Pools. For the full experience, I suggest you rent a cabana. As a bachelor party, the cabana will help bring the ladies (topless and other). What do you get for your cabana dollars, only a HD plasma screen TV, DVD Player/X Box 360 and full DVD/Game library, internet access, private safe/storage, a custom stocked mini fridge, chilled luxury terry cloth towels, complimentary sandals and even pre-programmed i-Pod rentals. Plus you never have to struggle to find a drink as you have a waitress on call. When you get a hunger in your belly, you can order from the TAO Asian Bistro kitchen that is easily the best pool food in Las Vegas. During the summer, TAO Beach will be packed. It is recommended you pool your cash and reserve that cabana early, like now.

Even if you don’t have a cabana, you’re going to have a great time. The DJs at TAO Beach are world class. No matter where you are, there is eye candy, so bring your shades you pervert!

Call now to reserve your cabana: Phone: (702) 388-8588

Smith and Wollensky: Bachelor Party Dining

Steak and Wine

A special dinner is paramount during your bachelor party in Vegas. The strip is saturated with great restaurants, theme cafes, and fast food. One of the best restaurants for on the strip is not located within a hotel, but in a strip mall of Las Vegas Boulevard – Smith and Wollensky.

Smith and Wollensky is a traditional steakhouse and they make their own pastries, french fries, salad dressings and soups fresh daily. In addition, they hand cut the dry-aged steaks when you order them. You want some wine with that, no problem. The wine selection is top notch.

Smith and Wollensky is a diamond in the rough and reservations are recommended. It makes a great start to your bachelor party weekend. Great steaks, good wine, full bar, and a well-informed staff make this place a consistent award winner. Call and book your table today:

Las Vegas Sign: Bachelor Party Destination

“What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.”

I think we can pretty much agree that this is a good rule of thumb for a bachelor party in Vegas. However, there is also a lot of drinking and dragging a camera around is not recommended due to the previously mentioned rule. So how can you prove you had a great time in Vegas? You can get a tattoo or you can take one simple photo. The “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign.

Located at the south end of the strip (5100 Las Vegas Boulevard South) , about a mile past the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, the sign sits in the middle of the street. A parking lot was recently added to the median allowing easy access to shutter bugs and your limo. This group shot is all you will need to remember all that happened in and all that you left behind in Las Vegas.

Planet Hollywood: Modern Bachelor Party Hotel

View of Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino

Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino

What makes a hotel a “bachelor party destination”? The ability to not leave the building and still have an amazing time. Boosting some of the hottest rooms on the strip, an amazing buffet, killer pool view, and one of the most well designed and sexiest casino floors on the strip, Planet Hollywood is a bachelor party in Vegas hotel.

Planet Hollywood Casino Floor

Planet Hollywood Casino Floor

Gaming: The casino floor is about three acres worth of slots, table games, sports book, poker, and “The Pleasure Pit”. The decor within the hotel attracts some of the hottest females on the strip. Did I mention the pleasure pit? It’s described as follows, “At the Pleasure Pit, you’ll play blackjack and roulette dealt by beautiful women in chic lingerie while go-go dancers move to hot beats.” I highly recommend you and your party take over a table or two at the pleasure pit. If you have six to ten guys willing to risk $300 each, get the attention of the pit-boss and let them know. They are more than happy to call out a dealer and open up a table just for you. Now you are a high roller and the ladies will take notice, and getting the bachelor noticed is definitely part of the party.

Planet Hollywood Panorama Suite

Planet Hollywood Panorama Suite

Accommodations: The modern feel of the casino floor continues into the modern feel of the hotel rooms. The price range in rooms here means that there is room type for all members of your party. The basic room, the Hollywood Hip room, has enough style to impress any strangers that might wander into your room after midnight. The Hollywood Hip room is good for the standard guest, but for the bachelor, I recommend saving your pennies and springing for the Panorama Suites. These amazing rooms include one of the best views of The Strip. There’s plenty of room to host any guest that you might have stopping by during the night. Planet Hollywood offers larger suites for you super high-rollers, but for most bachelor parties in Vegas, the Panorama Suite is plenty.

Eating: At some point, you’re going to want to put something with a little more substance than beer into your mouth. The food at Planet Hollywood ranges from the greatest hot dog in the world (Pink’s Hot Dog) to one of the best steak houses (Strip House) to one of the finest Japanese spots (KOI) and top it off with one of the strips best buffets (Spice Market Buffet). All your taste and price ranges are covered.

People Watching: Peepshow, Privé, Heart Bar, the Playing Field Lounge, the Living Room, Starbucks, the pool; Planet Hollywood has all your people watching locations covered. I recommend pool-side cabana by day, fifth-row seats at Peepshow, followed by bottle service at Privé. Ladies love bottle service.

So there you have it. For your consideration, the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino makes a great destination for your bachelor party in Vegas.
