Planning sucks, and bachelorette parties are a ton of work. So we’re taking all the guesswork out of planning a bachelorette party by breaking down top bachelorette destinations. Our guides will tell you where to stay, eat, party, how to get around, and give you a sample itinerary that you can follow. You’re welcome.
Las Vegas is synonymous with bachelorette parties, so it only makes sense that this is our first of many bachelorette party guides. No one goes to Sin City to relax so this itinerary is for the girls who like to party all day and night only to
pass out go to sleep and do it all over again the next day. The Vegas strip offers four miles of nonstop partying options, which is probably why so many people flock to the city to pregame their nuptials. But in a city with so many options, how TF do you know what to do to maximize your time? No need to reach for your essential oils—we got you. Here is your official Betches Bachelorette Guide to Las Vegas.
Where To Stay: The Cosmopolitan

When it comes to lodging in Vegas, you’ll want to consider a few factors: where to get the best bang for your buck, where to find the most ideal sleeping arrangements, and where you can
get f*cked up create memories that will last a lifetime. You’re definitely going to want to stay at a hotel that has both a day club and night club as well as one that has a ton of restaurant and bar options. This will just makes your life that much easier, and the chance of getting lost coming home at 5am that much smaller.
The Cosmopolitan is my go-to spot for staying in Vegas for a variety of reasons. The Cosmo is considered one of the smaller hotels, which is crazy to even fathom considering it has two towers of hotel rooms, a huge casino, over 25 food establishments, a spa, a night club, and a day club. But size does matter because the layouts of these hotels is extremely confusing and since you’ll only be there for a short time, you don’t want to waste time walking in circles when you have a pool party to get to. Plus you won’t have to deal with flocks of tourists that are spending the day aimlessly shopping while you’re just trying to find the nearest exit.
The suite options at The Cosmo are essentially created for large parties, specifically the Wraparound Terrace Suite. The suite can also connect to the room next door, allowing your entire group to share accommodations without being squished. The Terrace Suite’s balcony doors open to a huge terrace that offers insane views of the Vegas skyline—the perfect place for all your Instagram photos-to-be.
How To Get There
Unless you live in Los Angeles the thought of driving to Vegas will never cross your mind. But lucky for you there are a ton of direct fights from the east coast that will cost you around $500. $500?! Yup… we would say this is the average cost for what a bachelorette flight will cost someone, however there are a few ways to make paying for this less painful.
Download the Hopper app that lets you track flight prices for dates of your choosing. The app will send updates right to your phone when flight prices start to fluctuate and when the optimal time is to book is. The other way to soften the blow of this financial burden is to pay with credit card points. Literally put anything and everything on your credit card to get as many points as possible in anticipation of your trip. Most cards offer double points for travel and dining so get ready to justify those excessive Uber rides and weekday Seamless orders.
How To Get Around
We highly encourage you to take full advantage of the limos and party buses that wait outside the hotels at night and during the day. For roughly $10/person, you can get into the party vibe and IG story the experience and really rub it in the face’s of those who didn’t make the cut to join the trip.
We definitely do not suggest walking home unless the last stop of your night happens to be within your hotel. Uber is plentiful in Vegas and a majority of hotels have designated Uber/Lyft pick up areas, making it really easy to get from point A to point B. Even if it says its a 10 minute walk to your hotel, err on the side of caution and request a car. Plus, your feet are going to be on fire from wearing heels all night.
Where To Eat
If there’s anything more plentiful than nightclubs in this city, it’s got to be restaurants. Since people will be suffering at varying degrees of hungoverness, we suggest just finding someplace low-key in your hotel for breakfast, with the exception being the buffet at the Wynn. This $32 all-you-can eat option was voted best Vegas buffet, and with damn good reason. Soak up all the alcohol with more than 120 dishes and 15 live-action cooking stations.
Vegas is meant for group dinners, with endless options scattered throughout the strip. Since ordering à la carte can get pricey, we suggest setting up a prix-fix menu option in advance so your friends know upfront what they’re expected to pay. We suggest picking a restaurant within the hotel that you plan on going out at. For example, if you’re heading to Marquee, then opt for dinner at STK. Plus, these restaurants are well aware bachelorettes are in town and will offer customizable options like putting the bride’s name on the menu for no additional cost. Some of our fav nighttime spots include: Beauty & Essex, Sage, SUSHISAMBA, and Hakkasan Restaurant.
Where To Party
While there are tons of pool party options in Las Vegas, three remain at the top when compared to the rest: Marquee Day Club, Encore Beach Club, and Wet Republic. But which pool to go to on which day? DJs like The Chainsmokers, Tiësto, and Calvin Harris will be taking the stage, so make sure to check the events calendar on each club’s website a couple months before your trip and decide from there.
Promoters are prevalent in Vegas and are highly recommended since working with them will basically alleviate any financial burden of going out. (It’s how we make up for the pay gap, ladies.) Here’s how to find a promoter: literally go to the explore page of Instagram and type in “Vegas Promoter”. You will be greeted with 100+ options of people to choose from. Some are more legit than others, so sift through and find the one who’s working the parties you want to attend. Look at for people who have some semblance of a social life mixed into their promotional materials. From there start sliding into their DMs—we promise this isn’t weird.
Also, you’ll start to notice the second you post a picture on IG in Vegas, the promoters will come and find you. Seriously—they check geotags and find people they can work with to get into their partner venues. And don’t be too alarmed if they request pictures of the girls in your parties—that happens and is definitely off-putting, but it’s not like, a sign you should call the cops. If you’re not feeling that vibe, just find another promoter. TAKE ADVANTAGE!! Proof below:
The benefit of working with a day promoter in Vegas is that they also work night parties. The lines get crazy regardless if you bought a ticket for that night, so having someone who works with the venue is always helpful. Unlike in other cities, the venues in Vegas encourage the use of promoters because they help fill their clubs with girls. Once you meet up with your promoter in the lobby of the hotel, they will escort you to a designated table area with varying degrees of comped service. Yes, really. You’re welcome.
If you’re looking to entertain yourselves in ways that don’t involve getting completely obliterated,
congrats on being a better person than me Vegas offers a ton of nighttime live entertainment options. Rose Rabbit Lie and Spiegelworld are two interactive shows at The Cosmopolitan that mix fantasy and reality in a slightly more refined atmosphere. So if you aren’t into getting pushed around a club fighting to get a blurry picture of Calvin Harris, we suggest opting for a show. Plus some of our fave artists are known for their Vegas residencies like The Backstreet Boys, Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga, and Gwen Stefani.
But if you’re still unsure of exactly what to do and when to do it, here is our Betches approved itinerary for your partying pleasure.
Thursday, Day 1:
Pro Tip: If you’re traveling from the east coast, take advantage of the time difference and aim to arrive as early as possible to allow for an entire day of debauchery
- Check into the hotel, unpack, and claim your bed
- Change as fast as humanly possible into your bathing suits, rip a few shots in the room, then hit a pool party stat (Marquee, Encore Beach Club, or Wet Republic depending on which DJ you like that’s playing that day)
- NAP!!!!!! Even if you “don’t nap”, lay your ass in bed and attempt to relax for AT LEAST an hour and a half. You’ll thank us later when your friends want to go out after dinner.
- Head to dinner at TAO in The Venetian Hotel
- Either get tickets to see a live show or hit up Hakkasan Nightclub for the Tiësto residency
Friday, Day 2:
Pro Tip: Slow and steady wins the race halfway through a Vegas bender. Listen to your body and don’t force yourself to do something you’re not feeling. After all, if you’re heading to Vegas any time soon, temperatures are well above 85 degrees, and dehydration will knock you out.
- Sleep in and grab breakfast casually somewhere in the hotel
- Lay out at the hotel’s chill pool (yes, there are raging pool parties and relaxing pools—take advantage and rest halfway through your trip)
- Get dressed up and head to dinner at Sushi Roku, a trendy sushi spot with awesome views of the Strip in Caesar’s Palace
- Check out Calvin Harris’ residency at Omnia Nightclub (also located in Caesar’s Palace)
Saturday, Day 3:
Pro Tip: Food is your friend; you’re likely hungover and are going to need sustenance to soak up that alcohol. Plus, you’re going to need to fill up before your last pool party and night out!
- Indulge in the famous breakfast buffet at The Wynn
- Pick a pool from Marquee, Encore Beach Club, or Wet Republic that you haven’t gone to yet
- TAKE A NAP!!!!!!
- Head to STK for your last dinner out
- End your epic weekend at XS Nightclub that has DJs like Steve Angello, Diplo, Alesso and Drake performing on a frequent basis
Sunday, Day 4:
- GET THE F*CK HOME WHERE YOU BELONG!!!
