Vegas Recap Part I-The Bachelorette Party

Oh lordy, lordy, lordy, people. I had waaay too much fun in Vegas (as in: one too many drinks every night). I am seriously getting too old for this shiz. Oh, and my feet? I'm not sure if they are ever going to recover from the hell I put them through prancing and dancing around in heels for hours and hours each night.

So, to recap, let's start with the bachelorette party, shall we?

Our first stop was The Grand Lux Cafe restaurant in The Venetian. It is one of BFF's favorite restaurants, and is a sister company to The Cheesecake Factory. The food was delish, and they have very tasty peach bellini's if you are into that sorta thing.

After dinner we rushed out to get a taxi to take us to The Bellagio, where we were to meet up with our party bus host at the Caramel Lounge. The company we used was called Nite Tours Las Vegas, and we did the "Ladies Nite" tour. For $49 per person you get free entrance to four clubs, no waiting in the lines, transportation to the clubs in a "party bus" with free drinks (which consisted of a cooler with beer and Smirnoff's) and a host that stays with you all night to make sure it all runs smoothly. Oh, and yes, there is a pole on the bus. Classy, right? I have a few funny pics of that, but unfortunately they won't be making a blog appearance. Don't worry, they aren't of little ol' me. I'm a mommy for goodness sakes, I have a few standards!

Next club stop was The Bank. I wasn't thinking properly and didn't take any photos of the club decor to show you all, as that is what would be of more interest I am sure. Here are a few I found online:


Next up was Studio 54 in MGM. This club was alright, but too packed to really have any fun on the dance floor. No decor eye candy here, I think they leave that up to the go-go dancers. I probably would not choose to go back to this one.

Lastly, was my favorite stop, Tryst at The Wynn. There is an awesome waterfall that you can view from all areas of the club. We were able to get a spot out on the patio near it, which was nice because it was cooler and the music was not as loud.

All in all, the girls had a great time. I was a little weary of the whole "party bus" plan because, well, to be honest it's not really my style. I'm more of an "avoid loud packed clubs at all costs" kinda gal, but I don't think you can really get away with that for a bachelorette party. I wasn't always this way, but the older I get, the less and less interested in the whole scene I am. But, luckily I made it through and did have a great time. It was so convenient not having to worry about catching a taxi, waiting in long club lines, etc. I would definitely recommend it if you are planning a bachelorette party in Vegas.

Stayed tuned for Part II-The Wedding.

  1. Love this recap! I'm not a party bus girl either, but it sounds like you had a great time! Storing notes away for my own BFF-Vegas-wedding...and eagerly awaiting the review of the wedding. :)

  3. Quite the party! The only time I've been clubbing was also a bachelorette party. I had one (or three) too many and danced the night away- and was among the few that lasted until 3am. It's fun to have an "excuse" to hit the clubs every couple years. Lol. Cause I wouldn't EVER suggest going clubbing on a random Saturday night. I'm with you on avoidance of loud music and lots of people (many of whom are drunk and slimy men).

    In fact, I picture my own bachelorette party as good old 90s slumber party style with makeovers and writing love letters to Leonardo DiCaprio.
