Whether it’s for a bachelor party for one of your buddies or you just want some time to unwind and have a great time, few can compare to spending an awesome guys’ night out in Las Vegas. As this glittering metropolis has everything from classy restaurants and casinos to strip clubs and pool parties, you’d be hard-pressed to run out of places to visit in Sin City.
However, the same variety that makes Las Vegas an ideal destination for a guys’ night out can overwhelm many people, especially those who are visiting for the first time. If you’re new to the place, one of the last things you’d want to do is to waste time wondering what to do first and what to do next. This is why we’ve come up with a list of fantastic ideas to help you and your buddies have the best time in Vegas.
1. Get Shaved and Trimmed Old-School Style
If it’s still a bit early, the best way to prepare for your Las Vegas guys’ night out is to make yourself look spruced up and more dapper, like you’re really ready for the evening. Las Vegas is home to some of the best old-school-style barbershops. If you haven’t experienced being shaved like a real man by a real barber, consider it a rite of passage to manhood. The Art of Shaving is well-known for their traditional hot towel shaves, while A Cut Above the Rest offers great cuts at great prices.
2. Explore the Strip
You already look ready for the Las Vegas experience after that shave, so why not keep things going by taking some time to soak in the lights and sounds of the Strip? You got two options: explore the Las Vegas Strip walking on the curbside or rent a car for a relaxing cruise along this historic and scenic route. Whether you want something classy like a luxury limousine or something cool like a sports car, you can book car transportation services ahead of time so you don’t have to bother looking for rides at the last minute.
3. Play Poker
A trip to Las Vegas won’t be complete without courting lady luck in any of the Strip’s countless casinos, but if you want to gamble the manly man’s way, you have to try out poker. Some of the best casinos where you can play poker like Aria and The Palms have everything to offer and can take up your entire evening, but if you want the full Vegas experience for you and your buddies, try limiting your time in these places so you can try out the rest of what Vegas has to offer.
4. Eat Like Kings
Guys will always be guys, especially when it comes to food. And few experiences can make you feel more like a man than sinking your teeth into some of the best steaks in the country while dining at Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse or Golden Steer Steakhouse. Feel like eating something else? The good news is that Las Vegas is packed with restaurants of all specialties, so finding Japanese cuisine is just as simple as finding Italian cuisine.
5. Go to a Gentlemen’s Club
You’re probably already familiar with a conventional strip club, but the gentlemen’s clubs in Las Vegas are on a completely different level. For example, Crazy Horse 3 is a top destination for bachelor parties, but it’s also a great place for single guys who just want to have fun. The overall mood for these places perfectly fit those who want to look and feel like true men of class while still keeping things a bit on the wild side. These places observe strict dress codes, and those who manage to get in are welcomed by charming ladies, fine champagne, high-quality cigars, and good music.
6. Go to a Pool Party
After a visit at a gentlemen’s club, you may want to consider letting loose at a night pool party. Places such as Drai’s Beachclub and Encore are teeming with party life, long after daytime pool parties have already fizzled out. If you’re lucky enough, you might even get to meet celebrity performers during one of these nighttime pool parties.
Guys’ nights out are the perfect time to indulge in the manly and wild stuff that makes guys what they are. Keep these ideas in mind when planning your visit to Las Vegas, and expect to have one of the best nights of your life. [nofollow]
