The 10 Best Bachelor Party Ideas You Hadn’t Thought Of

Underrated Bachelor Party Destinations You Should Consider

If you’ve been tapped as a best man or groomsman for an upcoming wedding, you’re probably already aware that one of your primary duties is to plan an epic bachelor party for the groom-to-be.

Anyone can pick Las Vegas, Miami, or New Orleans for their party and plan an absolute rager without breaking a sweat.

But what if you want to do something a little bit unique and non-cliché for your bachelor party destination?

Then read on to see our rundown of some great under-the-radar cities for your upcoming party.

MARFA, TEXAS

Marfa Texas bachelor party

Maybe your idea of a great bachelor party is to leave the big city behind, unplug, and have a guys weekend. There is plenty to do and mystery involved in this small town in west Texas. Beyonce even chartered a private plane in 2012 to visit the quaint town busting with character. Queen Bey isn’t the only celebrity captured by the intrigue of Marfa. Natalie Portman, Robert Pattinson, and Jake Gyllenhaal are just a few of the celebrities who’ve visited Marfa.

Marfa is where James Dean filmed his last movie, Giant. If you want to be a rebel without a cause you can even stay in the same room he called home while filming the movie. Just stay at Hotel Paisano and ask for the James Dean Room.

Mystery surrounds the town of Marfa. Long been the source of much speculation and fodder for paranormal activity, the Marfa Lights bring tourists from around the globe. Glowing orbs magically appear in the desert night. The viewing station for this possible supernatural occurrence is just outside Marfa on Highway 67. The mystery of the lights has been attributed to many things including UFOs but no definitive reason behind their appearance has ever been given.

Despite being home to fewer than two thousand people, the food scene is difficult to beat. Everything from fine dining to a restaurant serving exclusively grilled cheese sandwiches can be found in Marfa.

There’s much more to do in and around Marfa than look for strange lights and reminisce about the short film career of James Dean. Chinati Hot Springs is a perfect place to remove yourself from social media and cell phones. Relax in their hot springs and enjoy your last days of being single in tranquility.

Try the Sunrise Tour at the Chinati Foundation. El Cosimico offers campgrounds with vintage trailers. Not glamping enough for you then reserve the Imperial Mansion. It has a full bath, kitchen, and air conditioning. Big Bend National Park is about a ninety-minute drive from Marfa and offers beautiful, scenic drives, day hikes, and river trips for those seeking a weekend more reminiscent of City Slickers than The Hangover.

Prada Marfa is an art installation that looks like an authentic Prada store and the perfect Instagram opportunity for your bachelor party. Marfa Burrito is host for the breakfast burrito favored by Matthew McConaughey but it’s more than just all right, all right, all right.

Served by Ramona, who speaks no English but makes a great burrito for a reasonable price. If you want something a little more healthy try dining at the communal tables at Comida Futura. They offer lentils and kale to help you cleanse your system after a night of drinking.

Even though Marfa is a small town, it offers bachelor parties a lot to do. If we missed anything be sure to let us know in the comments section.

DETROIT, MICHIGAN

Detroit Bachelor Party

Detroit has long been known as the “Motor City” and for most of the twentieth century has had the reputation of a once thriving community decimated by technology and the global economy of the 21st century. Like Mark Twain once said about his demise, the downward spiral of Detroit has been “greatly exaggerated.” The reality is that Detroit is a great place to be, especially for a bachelor party.

Greektown is the entertainment district in Detroit and home to many bars as well as the best gentlemen’s club in the city, Bouzouki. The Greektown Casino-Hotel is a great location to stay and play. With nine bars and an equal number of restaurants less than a mile away not to mention poker and other gambling in the actual casino, Detroit is definitely a top bachelor party destination.

Detroit is also home to a fine cigar. Try La Casa or Churchill’s Wine and Cigar Bar. La Casa is located in downtown Detroit and Churchill’s has three different locations. Either option is a great way to start off the evening and pick up a stogie for later.

If your crew isn’t into having a smoke to celebrate your impending nuptials but still want something cool to do then you are in luck in Detroit.  It’s impossible to escape the automotive history of the city so why not embrace everything Detroit has to offer especially if your wolfpack are car guys.

The Henry Ford Museum is a must-see attraction regardless of your party’s affinity towards cars. The museum is 9 acres of automotive history from presidential limousines to the Rosa Park bus. Not too far away in Fairborn is the Automotive Hall of Fame offering a glimpse into the development of motor vehicles and the pioneers who made it happen.

Perhaps your party prefers to travel over water instead of by land. In that case Diamond Jack has you covered. Take a private charter and enjoy floating along the Detroit River while gazing at Detroit landmarks.

Sports and the city of Detroit go hand-in-hand. The city is home to teams in all four professional sports including the Tigers, Lions, and Pistons. Detroit gets the nickname Hockeytown because the city has one of the most historic franchises in NHL history, the Red Wings. The Greektown Casino-Hotel is about a mile from Joe Louis Arena, home to the Red Wings.

Detroit also enjoys a rich history in music. The city was home to Motown and a small museum in Detroit pays tribute to the musical movement that included such artists as Marvin Gaye.

BUFFALO, NEW YORK

Buffalo Bachelor Party

When most people think of Buffalo they think of chicken wings, cold weather, football, and little else. The City of Light has much more to offer those looking for a different destination for their bachelor party celebration. Buffalo is actually a cool and hip city on the rise that boasts some of the best drinking neighborhoods in the country. Buffalo is full of options and possibilities that will set your bachelor party apart from the Vegas or Miami trip.

Buffalo has more than wings when it comes to food. The city touts over 200 culinary specialties from local dive places, to restaurants, bars, and food trucks. We have several recommendations for Buffalo including the Lucky Day Whiskey Bar where you can find over 600 varieties of whisky. If old world whisky isn’t your thing then try Don Tequila for some Mexican eating and have your crew take down the margarita tower.

The bar scene in Allentown is definitely the place to be in the Buffalo. Some of the bars don’t close until 4 am. Bar hop to places like Old Pink, Mulligan’s Brick Bar, and Frizzy’s. After 2 am your best bet in finding a crowd is The Pink.

There are also several locales offering live music in Allentown including Nietzsche’s which offers live music 7 nights a week, 365 days a year, or  a place known for their smoked wings and live music, DBGBs.

After a long night of debauchery plan on going to Jim’s Steakout for some of the best steak hoagies you will ever taste, especially at 4 am. If adult entertainment is a must for your bachelor party then plan on heading to Toronto. Buffalo has a lot to offer but north of the border has more so make sure everyone has a passport.

Maybe your party isn’t interested in scantily clad women? Take advantage of other things Buffalo offers. Most guys like sports and wear caps from their favorite team. Likely the cap you own is made in Buffalo at the New Era company which offers tours.

If your boys want to scratch their gambling itch and are distraught over not going to Vegas, Buffalo has you covered as well. The Seneca Niagara Casino and Hotel is a great option for your party to play some poker or roll the dice.

In Buffalo it’s impossible to escape the city’s connection to chicken wings. A stop at Duff’s Famous Wings is a must and don’t worry if you get hooked on their wings that come in over 10 different sauces. Duff’s will ship wings directly to your doorstep. Buffalo is also home to the National Buffalo Wing Festival traditionally held in September.

Your bachelor party is going to need something to wash all those wings down and Buffalo is the right place to be with over 30 microbreweries and distilleries, many like the Flying Bison or the Lafayette Brewery offer tours and tastings.

These are just a few of our suggestions for Bachelor Party Destination: Buffalo. If you’ve had been to a bachelor party in Buffalo leave your suggestions in the comments.

 

CLEVELAND, OHIO

Cleveland Bachelor Party

Cleveland is the city known as the “Mistake by the Lake,” but planning a celebration of your last days of being single with your best friends in the city would be anything but a mistake.

Sports, rock and roll, theater, and movies all call Cleveland home and should be reason enough to consider hosting your party in the great state of Ohio.

The city of Cleveland is where A Christmas Story was filmed and there is an entire museum dedicated to the film for those who aren’t scared they’ll shoot their eye out, complete with the leg lamp. New York’s theater district is world famous and the largest in country but Cleveland is number two on that list so if taking in a show is your style then there is plenty to choose from in the city.

Maybe your more of a rock ’n roll kind of guy. Good news, Cleveland is literally the birthplace of rock and roll and home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The city also known as “Believeland” for its sports teams also offers bachelor party goers ample opportunity to check out a game. After the game grab a drink or two in the Ohio City neighborhood. It was named one of the top 10 best places to bar hop in the world.

Bars not your deal but drinking beer is then the BrewBoat is for your bachelor party. BrewBoat runs from late May to the end of September and offers parties of up to 14 people the opportunity to pedal, pour, and enjoy beer and enjoy a scenic trip in Northeast Ohio. It is BYOB so make sure to bring your favorite beer or wine.

Microbrews abound in Cleveland if you would rather stay on dry land and not have to pedal. Try going to Masthead, Noble Beast, Butcher and Brewer, Great Lakes Brewery, Market Garden, Platform, and Brick and Barrel.

If your bachelor party is a little more competitive then try playing WhirlyBall. It’s basically two teams of bumper cars trying to get a wiffle ball from one side of the court to the other where a 15-inch target 10 feet in the air serves as the goal. Think of a combination of Jai Alai, basketball, and hockey.

Looking for adult entertainment then grab the free bus from Larry Flint’s Hustler Club. Not the type of bar you want for your bachelor party then try the W 6th bar district or for a little more up class experience the E. 4th bar district.

Is there something we missed from Cleveland? Don’t keep it to yourself. Share it with Groomsmen Central in the comments section.

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA

Oklahoma City Bachelor Party

Oklahoma City is home to the NBA’s Thunder and often associated with an American tragedy but OKC is a vibrant city and a destination with a lot to offer bachelor party planners. In addition to the NBA, the city is home to the Triple-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers who play their home games in Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

The area around the stadium is filled with bars, restaurants, and entertainment that could fill a weekend by itself. Grab a steak at Mickey Mantle’s, some “twisted” comfort food at Bricktown Brewery, or sing along to your favorite song at Michael Murphy’s Dueling Piano Bar.

JJ Alley’s has been described as an amalgamation of everyone from 21-81 looking to have an alcohol induced good time. In other words it’s the perfect place to start off the night. The Pink Parrot Cantina is a great spot with diverse music.

The natural progression of the night could lead to something a little more risque, after all it’s a bachelor party. Try Coyote Ugly or take in a burlesque show at Dollhouse. Wanting something more? Little Darlings is the best the city has to offer in the way of adult entertainment.

Remington Park is a destination for those interested in parimutuel betting. Live horse racing is available Thursday – Sunday but Remington Park is also a casino and home to live entertainment like Mixed Martial Arts.

OKC is a great place for a bachelor party. Let us know about your party in Oklahoma City and leave your suggestions in the comments section.

 

UPDATE: FIVE MORE BACHELOR PARTY IDEAS

 

HOMER, ALASKA

Homer Alaska Bachelor Party

Most short-time bachelors don’t instantly think of having their bachelor party in Alaska, much less Homer, but the city with a population of just south of 6,000 has almost everything needed for an epic last hoorah. It’s a quaint seaside town that overlooks Kachemak Bay and the Kenai Mountains. It offers a seemingly endless amount of adventure, including guided kayak tours and glacier skiing. Halibut Cove offers a unique fishing experience where the only roads are made of water. Charter a fishing boat and catch some of the plentiful salmon and halibut the area is known for.

There is more to do in Homer than fish and go on hikes. Homer Spit is a cool area reminiscent of Coney Island with a boardwalk, stores, ice cream shops, and public beaches. It’s also home to a ship graveyard that makes for a cool experience. If your guys are more wine and cheese then try the Bear Creek Winery with a tasting room that offers samples of their best fruit wines. Not that you would necessarily want to read on your bachelor party weekend but Homer does have two independent bookstores, Homer Bookstore and the Old Inlet Bookshop. 

The Salty Dawg Saloon is older than the state of Alaska and is the best bar in Homer. Their drinks are inexpensive and stop service at 5:00 am. If you are in need of some more adult entertainment then travel up the coast about 90 minutes through Happy Valley to Good Time Charlies in Soldotna. It’s a dive where the unprecedented for strips clubs seems to happen on the regular. The worst that could happen is you see some great scenery on the way there and have a great story to tell on the way back.

SAVANNAH, GEORGIA

Savannah Bachelor Party

The picturesque coastal town of Savannah, GA is separated from South Carolina by the Savannah River and gives bachelor party planners plenty of possibilities. Congress Street provides the opportunity for you and your cronies to bar-hop in what was once known as the “red light district” of the city. Make sure the Rail Pub, home of the $5 forties that come with a complimentary paper bag, is on your list of places to go. Fridays at the Rail Pub feature free fried chicken to go with those forties.

Perhaps your friends are like James Bond and prefer your martinis shaken and not stirred. In that case, Jen’s and Friends is a quaint neighborhood bar with over 100 variations of 007’s favorite drink. The owner Jen McEvoy has been voted Savannah’s best bartender so you can be confident that the drinks Jen pours are worthy of any secret agent.

Any company that sells bullet bottle openers and ammo cans has to recommend an American Legion post whenever possible. Post 135 in the Victorian District is the place to go for cheap drinks. Make sure to visit Betty Bombers located inside Post 135. It’s a retro, no-frills kind of place that serves burgers that are anything like what you would find in the military.

It’s hard to escape the hauntings of Savannah and there are multiple opportunities for ghost tours. Ghost City Tours offers several different types of tours including the Savannah Haunted Pub Crawl. If ghosts aren’t your thing then the city’s proximity to water offers plenty of fishing opportunities. Captain Jeff at Savannah Fishing Adventures provides an amazing adventure that is not only fun but includes a lot of fish. If your crew isn’t hooked on fishing then make the short drive to Hilton Head Island for a round of golf on one of the island’s 24 public and private courses, making it worthy of being selected as the #10 golf destination in the world by Golf Digest.

All bachelor parties don’t end or involve adult entertainment but if you need a little diversion from fishing and golf then try the Emperors Gentlemen’s Club. Members of the military get in free which is always a plus in our book.

 

LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS

Little Rock Bachelor Party

The capital of the Natural State is a great destination for a bachelor party. Any visit to Arkansas has to include the outdoors. Little Rock is in the northwest corner of the state and serves as the gateway to the Ozarks. Pinnacle Mountain State Park offers traditional lodging like cabins, campsites, and lodges but for those seeking a little something different we suggest you try renting a yurt.

Yurts can hold up to six people and while it isn’t glamping in its purest form, its close. The park offers plenty of activities including motorcycle riding, hang gliding, golf, hiking, and horseback riding to name just a few. The beauty of Arkansas goes beyond the picturesque landscapes. In case you wanted to upgrade your lady friend’s diamond ring, get her a set earrings, or maybe one of your bachelor party buddies is thinking about tying the knot, Arkansas offers the chance to dig for diamonds.

You might be thinking enough with the outdoor adventures, we’ve seen Ozark and just want to hang out and drink. Fair enough and Little Rock has you covered. Rock Town Distillery was the state’s first distillery after prohibition. Legal distillery, that is. A tour is available where you can see firsthand how grain is transformed into bourbon, vodka, and gin. If craft cocktails don’t do it for you and your posse then try some of the many microbrews like Lost Forty Brewing, Stone’s Throw Brewing, and Diamond Bear Brewing that Little Rock has to offer.

Here’s a fun fact that you may not give a damn about but the Old Mill in Little Rock is a replica of a water-powered grist mill and appears in the opening scene of the 1939 film, Gone with the Wind. A couple of great places for food and atmosphere that you should give a damn about are South on Main that serves live music and great southern cuisine and The Root serving some of the best comfort food in the south.

The William J. Clinton Library and Museum is also in Little Rock where you can enter a replica of the Oval Office as it was when Bill Clinton was President of the United States.

If your bachelor party call for something a little risqué, Paper Moon provides the best in adult entertainment in Little Rock.

 

KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI

Kansas City Bachelor Party

Missouri is the “Show Me State” and there isn’t a better city to show what a bachelor party was meant to be than Kanas City. This city is literally a bachelor party playground with the BBQ, sports, and beer. Hope on the bus for the KC Beer Tour and experience eight of the best microbreweries the city has to offer and you don’t have to worry about drinking and driving or selecting a designated driver.

A bachelor party in Kansas City is likely to give you and your friends the meat sweats. You won’t be able to stop eating BBQ throughout the weekend and why would you want to with so many great places. Try Arthur Bryant’s. A mainstay in the barbecue scene in Kansas City, they’ve been smoking brisket and ribs for nearly a century. Woodyard Bar-B-Que was featured on Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives so it’s a legit place despite its no-frills approach to food. Try the smoked chicken and burnt ends sandwiches. Be prepared to be in line early. They open at 10:30 am with a line already formed. Gates BBQ has six locations and features ribs, sausage, and burnt ends. Hungry yet?

Kansas City is home to professional baseball and football teams and some of the most passionate sports fans in the country. Take in a game at legendary stadiums like Kauffman Stadium or Arrowhead Stadium. If your party are sports fans this a must for your bachelor party. The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is in Kansas City and is an awesome tribute to some of the best players to never play in the major leagues.

If you need females to show you something extra in the show me state, check out Legs as an option for gentlemen’s entertainment.

 

SANDPOINT, IDAHO

Sandpoint Idaho Bachelor Party

Sandpoint is in northern Idaho on the state’s largest lake, Lake Pend Oreille. It offers ample outdoor activities for your bachelor party, including ski slopes at Schweitzer Mountain Resort. In 2011, the city of Sandpoint was named by Rand McNally and USA Today as the “Most Beautiful Small Town.”

The scenery is impressive and needs to be enjoyed with the proper refreshment. The Laughing Dog Brewery offers a great open space to enjoy beer while hanging out with some of man’s best friends and your best friends.

Schweitzer Mountain Resort is less known and thus less crowded than the more popular Sun Valley but the resort provides great skiing and snowboarding as well as challenging bike trails. Gold Hill Trail offers the perfect perspective to take in all of the beautiful landscape. Sandpoint City Beach is a great location to barbecue with the rest of your bachelor party and enjoy good food and good friends.

If you need something less natural and more manmade then try Silverwood for a theme park or Boulder Beach for a waterpark. Despite its small population, Sandpoint has plenty of watering holes. Everything from dive bars like Tam O’Shanter to the Idaho Pour Authority with 12 rotating craft beer taps and over 300 unique bottles of craft beer in stock can be found in Sandpoint.

Baton Rouge, LA

Baton Rouge Bachelor Party

Everyone knows about New Orleans but why do the typical “go to Pat O’Brien’s, drink hurricanes until you’re blitzed, then take part in the revelry of Bourbon Street” routine like everyone else? You want your bachelor party to stand out and be memorable. Most people at this point have a tall tale from Bourbon Street so nothing you can say or do will shock people.

This is why we recommend having your bachelor party in Baton Rouge. It’s the state capitol and the home of Louisiana State University. That means that it’s home to LSU football and for the right group of guys, offers an unforgettable experience Saturday afternoons in the fall.

LSU is always at the top of any list of top tailgates in the country. If the locals know you are from out of town and part of a bachelor party, they will treat you right and want to show you a good time with plenty of food and drink. If you can see straight after the tailgate and can get tickets you will witness the stadium referred to as “Death Valley.” Don’t worry if you don’t have a ticket to the game. Join the thousands that continue the tailgate during the game and watch it on TV.

It’s not all LSU football in Baton Rouge. There’s LSU baseball as well. We’re only kind of joking because the baseball experience at LSU is a smaller version of the football experience. Looking for something other than a game to go to in Baton Rouge then try the Cajun Pride Swamp Tours. Learn about the waterways and the Louisiana Wetlands. This is your chance to live the life of Swamp People and get your own close encounter with an alligator.

The Chimes is a great local place for made-from-scratch food and an extensive beer and liquor selection. They even offer Chimes Beer U where you can complete your undergraduate beer degree and prove to the world what you already knew about beer drinking. Why stop there? Be an overachiever and get your Masters and Ph.D. Your newly-minted degree is sure to impress the ladies at The Penthouse Club. They offer bachelor party packages and have special nights like their naked sushi night.

Don’t necessarily want to appreciate female works of art? Then go to one of the many museums that Baton Rouge offers like the LSU Museum of Art.

Buena Vista, CO

Buena Vista Bachelor Party

Buena Vista is about two hours southwest of Denver and offers bachelor party planners ample opportunity to turn the last hurrah into the outdoor adventure of a lifetime. Whitewater rafting is a bonding experience that almost everyone will appreciate. Noah’s Ark Colorado Rafting is rated the #1 Colorado rafting trip. But rafting isn’t the only activity you will find at Noah’s Ark. They have an entire adventure park that is more like a playground for grownups on a grand scale. The park includes 7 ziplines and over 60 unique obstacles. If that wasn’t enough Noah’s Ark is also the place to go for rock climbing and backpacking. There are even overnight adventures that include a basecamp. Every good bachelor party story includes a basecamp.

The Jumpin’ Good Goat Dairy is where you can get up close and personal with goats. Not exciting right? What is exciting is all of the artisan products like cheese that are made at the farm from the goats. All of the products, even the non-goat cheese products are local and delicious. Probably best you get something to wash all of that cheese down. Lucky for you that Buena Vista is home to several distilleries that offer excellent tours and even better small-batch handcrafted spirits. The Deerhammer Distillery and Wood’s Hight Mountain Distillery offer some of the best whiskey, gin, and liqueur anywhere. Definitely worth a sample in their tasting rooms.

Buena Vista is home to the Gold Rush Days. It’s a festival with live music and Civil War reenactments celebrating the gold mining heritage of the area. You can even be recruited to be part of the reenactment. If you get the fever to hold your bachelor party in Buena Vista, Gold Rush Days usually happens in August.

One last manly option for your bachelor party is to take an off-road Jeep or ATV tour. BV Jeeps offers obviously Jeeps but you can also rent ATVs and side by side vehicles. This is a great option for exploring the two area ghost towns, Tin Cup Loop, or Billings Lake.

Buena Vista is your chance to have a bachelor party where everyone unplugs and escapes for a weekend with good friends and great times.

Delaware City, DE

Delaware City Bachelor Party

Delaware is close to Atlantic City, Baltimore, Washington DC, and other more popular destinations but Delaware City has plenty of unique experiences for a bachelor party. This area is steeped in American history and attractions that offer hands-on experiences related to that history. A short ferry ride to Fort Delaware State Park takes you back to 1864. Costumed interpreters will guide you through the park where you can help a blacksmith hammer out parts, see an 8-inch Columbiad gun fire a live round, or dig for treasure.

In October, you can search for paranormal activities with Diamond State Ghost Hunters. Not a believer in the paranormal? You will be. Crabby Dick’s seems like an appropriately named place for a bachelor party. They serve some of the best crabs in the Chesapeake Bay. The downtown features an ice cream parlor, antique shops, and other restaurants.

You can also be taken out to the old ball game in Delaware City. Not just any baseball game but the Diamond State Base Ball Club. It’s a 19th-century vintage base ball team that plays by slightly different rules than those of today’s game. Learn a little about the history of the game and even try out if you live in the area. Diamond State is the 2018 Silver Ball Champions so they know a thing or two about base ball.

Fort Walton Beach, FL

Fort Walton Beach Bachelor Party

You can probably take a really good guess at what a bachelor party in Fort Walton Beach is going to involve. Plenty of time drinking ice cold beer on the beach. Okaloosa Island is a great beach and not crowded compared to some of the other Florida beaches. Destin Airboat Tours and Cattywampus Eco Adventures are both a great way for your party to spend a day on the water. Anchor Management Charters lets you go diving or paddle boarding. Of course, there are the fishing tours and the dolphin and whale watching charters.

Renting jet skis, water skiing or parasailing are fun in the sun as well. Fort Walton Beach has Wild Willy’s Adventure Zone if a ropes course, arcade, and miniature golf is more your speed. It’s kind of odd but a man can work up a powerful thirst after spending a day on and in the water. Quench it at Tapworks or Salty Duck. Both have a great atmosphere and beer selections. Need an even bigger selection then head to Props Brewery and Taproom. Rick’s Crab Trap has you covered if you didn’t go fishing or didn’t catch anything or if you just want really good seafood.

Sammy’s provides the adult entertainment in Fort Walton Beach. Bottle service for a bachelor party is $375 but you can always claim it’s an office party and pay $275. They have both an early happy hour and late night happy hour so you can start and end your bachelor party at Sammy’s.

Lexington, KY

Lexington Bachelor Party

Lexington is home to many things but it’s known as the Horse Capital of the World. That makes it a little difficult to escape the sport so we suggest if you’re having your bachelor party in Lexington to embrace it. Keeneland offers some of the best horse racing anywhere and the chance to win some money betting on who will win, place, and show. No need to dress like you’re at the Kentucky Derby but why not? It’s your bachelor party and would make for a great photo.

The city is also home to many breweries and distilleries. The Distillery District is a must stop for your bachelor party. The James E. Pepper Distillery, Ethereal Brewing, Barrel House Distillery, and the Elkhorn Tavern are all great places to grab a drink. Dine at Goodfellas Pizza and Middle Fork and hit the Crank and Boom Ice Cream Lounge for dessert. The Burl features live music while the Burl Arcade will take you back to the eighties with some of the best classic arcade and pinball games.

There are plenty of golf courses in and around Lexington like Kearney Hill, Griffin Gate, and Lakeside, so you can hit the links as well. They say you drive for show and put for dough. If that’s true make sure your short game is on because you will definitely want to take some money with you for a nightcap at one of Lexington’s gentlemen’s clubs like Spearmint Rhino, Platinum Dolls, and Cowboys Show Girls. If you have enough scratch leftover then go to Tally Ho for burgers, hot dogs, omelets, and breakfast sandwiches. It’s never too early or too late to go to Tally Ho because they’re open 24 hours.

CONCLUSION

Not every bachelor party has to be a weekend trip to Vegas, and there is a likely a great bachelor party destination close to you that is as good if not better than one of the “typical” stag party spots.

These ten places are the best yet most underrated bachelor party destinations in the country.

Agree? Disagree? Post your thoughts to the comments and help your fellow man in deciding where to go for his bachelor party.
