Any Way You Want It

Kit: The Las Vegas Bachelor Party

June 6, 2014 Buying Guides By

Sure, you assemble the crew and cobble together a bachelor party in pretty much any city, but chances are the party will wrap up before anyone’s moral compass spins out of control if you’re in a city like Boston or Chicago. If it’s excess you seek — indulgent meals, cocktail-fueled pool parties, sunshine practically guaranteed — then the pull of Las Vegas is like that of gravity: a natural phenomenon, an attractive force, and something that inevitably ends with a collision. The beauty of a Vegas bachelor party is that you can create an itinerary that suits any preference for a long weekend: spend an afternoon on the track in a Ferrari, indulge in killer dinner, smoke cigars and play a round of golf (and) or suit up for an epic night out. However you do it, you’ll need to pack the appropriate set of tools.
