My ladies and I decided to go to Vegas for a long weekend to celebrate my bachelorette party, and before we book anything I’d love to hear from this awesome community! There are some threads on this topic but they are a few years old and I’d love to get some updated suggestions.
It’s going to be me and my 3 bridesmaids (so 4 total) and where we stay is very important because we want to have an adult pool party weekend. We want to stay a hotel on the main strip that has a fun party scene where we can rent a cabana or pool side space; hosts or is super close to a fun nightclub; and has a suite suitable for all of us to stay in. There is such a range of options! We will all be 29-31y/o and while we definitely want a bumpin’ pool party day-scene, we don’t want the kind where you get pushed into the pool by strangers. We want to go out one evening to a night club and one daytime activity like air yoga. Other than that spend time at the awesome pool and other hotel amenities.
The Palazzo and the Bella suite is at the top of the list right now. Anyone stayed there? Have a better suggestion? Been to a pool party they would warn against?
Excited to hear your tales and please feel free to include any other tips you might have for Vegas for my kind of group.

Ugh! I wrote a detailed post and the connection timed out.
The TL;DR version is where I suggest either Rehab at the Hard Rock, or if you want to stay right on the Strip, Liquid at the Aria. I’m less familiar with the Palazzo parties, but I do know that Rehab is a big daytime party that’s not TOO crazy.
Have fun! FH and I got engaged in Vegas, and we go back a few times a year.

Drais at Cromwell is the hot adult pool club at the moment. Palazzo shares a pool with Venetian, it is pretty and you can always hit up Tao Beach Club. Ladies can wear pasties. Bare at Mirage is topless, most do not though. It is a chill adult pool. Better suited to relax. Hard Rock is slightly off Strip but is know for its pool scene although it is not as popular as it used to be. You would really like Marquee Pool at Cosmopolitan. Actually Cosmopolitan might really be perfect for the vibe you want. The 3 story Bungalows are perfect for the bachlorette party but only have one bed. Hakassan and Omnia are popular clubs right now.

I would recommend MGM Grand or Wynn/Encore if you want to do the day club.
Wet Republic at MGM Grand can get a bit “messy” later in the afternoon as people tend to get pretty drunk – but it is one of the biggest day clubs in Las Vegas. I just got back from a girl’s trip a few weeks ago and we saw Calvin Harris there.
Encore Beach Club is a good one too.The Cosmopolitan has the Marquee Day club, which I’ve never been to but the night club isn’t as big as it used to be. It’s still a really nice club and has an amazing view of the strip.
As far as night clubs, Omnia (at Ceasar’s Palace), Light (at Mandalay Bay), Tryst (at Wynn), Surrender (at Encore), Hakkassan (at MGM Grand) and Tao (Venitian) would be the ones I reccommend.
Oh, and don’t go to Drais Afterhours club. Ugh, it was so skeevy. I hear their day club and night club is nice, but I cannot attest to that.
I live in Southern California, so Vegas was like an extension of my backyard for a few college years. Haha.

MGM was fun…my friend had her bach there and it was AWESOME DRUNK FUN. Great clubs (even though I hate that lol) and their pool parties are crazy .

The Cosmopolitan is a great hotel for a bachelorette party. Centrally located, girly chandelier bar, and great pools. Even though our cabana started on fire during my bachelortte. Ha.

You were there for the fire last summer?!! I was too!! That was YOU?

Haha! I’m glad we made it out! technically our cabana did not start on fire – we were on the safe end – but we did have to grab our stuff and run! What an experience.

Yayyy for Vegas!!! My favorite place…hence where I’ll be going for my bachelorette next year!!! I’ve stayed at the Cosmopolitan for a bachelorette and it was amazing. I’ve also heard great things about ARIA. But you definitely can’t go wrong with Venetian or Palazzo (sister hotels). I stayed at the Venetian and it was amazing as well. I wouldn’t limit your stay to pool parties, etc, because you will likely venture outside of the hotel for other festivites…only downside is there could possibly be a cover (i.e, Rehab). Anyway, you can’t go wrong either way. HAVE A BLAST!

I’ve been to Vegas many times from living in LA. I’ve enjoyed my stays at Cosmo, Venetian/Palazzo (can cram 4 girls in the room) Aria/Vdara (Can also cram 3-4 girls in a room comfortably), MGM Signature, Encore, and most recently at the Cromwell (I got a free upgrade so I got lucky). I have to say the Cromwell was the cheapest without sacrificing for quality AND probably THE most central. PLUS you can SKIP the line for Drai’s which is one of the hottest clubs ;). I’ve also heard that Cosmo has comped tables for Marquee for bachelorette before, so try your best?
I would probably just pick the cheapest one out of those at the time.
Bellagio was underwhelming and overpriced, PH and Hardrock are not bad options either if you’re on a budget, although Hardrock is a bit out of the way but there’s Rehab (which I’ve never gone)
For pool parties I’ve gone to Surrender, Encore Beach Club & Marquee Day club and those were fun! I haven’t gone to the new Drai’s but I’m sure that’ sounds awesome!
I did not like Tao Beachclub. it was tiny and nasty.

Ug- that’s happened to me a few times. Thanks for sticking with it! Did the HR seem far from the ‘central’ strip? I’ve heard taxi/uber prices are crazy so I am literally trying to plan most of the weekend within walking distance (minus the 2 outings I mentioned)
Thank you for the link and details! The Cosmopolitan does keep coming up in my searches…
Thank you! I will absolutely look into the clubs you mentioned. Is the Drais Afterhours different from the regular ‘Drais’ ?
So you don’t think the MGM is too ‘Spring Break’ for us? I just don’t want to have to be too cautious because of crazy drunks…
Another vote for The Cosmo! Lol a fire?! What the heck happened?
Thank you I am very excited! I’ve never been so this seemed like a great reason to make it happen. So many of you are mentioning the Cosmo I think I will have to seriously consider it! We will be leaving the hotels I just want to make it as economic as possible since I’ve heard taxis/ubers will be extremely expensive and in the end it’s cheaper to just stay close to things.
Thank you so much for all the details! After this thread I am definitely leaning towards The Cosmo. I do want a fun pool party, but also an overall girly feel also sounds ideal..

The palm trees around the pool are fake. In fact, they are made of a plastic foam. Somehow (probably from someone ashing a cigarette off a balcony), one caught fire and the whole place went up in flames rather quickly. It was crazy and sucked. They reopened the pool the next day. This was at the chill pool, not the party pool.

Drais is on the roof of the Cromwell, they used to be in the basement. It was known to be an after hours to go once the clubs dies down about 2am. Now they have a dayclub, then clear out for the afterhours that opens at midnight but really starts about 2/3 am. The after hours crowd is rowdy, raunchy. Ecellent people watching at the blackjack tables on the main floor though. I recommend the day but unless you like the crazies the afterhours might not be the right enviroment.
The Cosmo fire happened because of a ciggerette and fake palm trees catching fire. No one was arrested. Now they are not allowed to have fake trees

OH my gosh! That is a huge fire!!!
So, since my post I did some research and it looks like it will cost about $100 more per person over the 3 nights to stay at the Cosmo…..does that seem worth it?
