New York City feels like it was made for the most epic bachelor parties ever. A New York bachelor party means hanging out with the guys, having an absolute blast, in one of the top party destinations of the world. But it’s vast! It’s overwhelming! And there are so many different things to consider.
If you’re organizing these pre-wedding glorious celebrations then the stakes are high. But don’t panic. Our complete guide to throwing a New York bachelor party has you covered with insider tips and hints to ensure you all feel like VIPs.
New York is overloaded with incredible things to do (so frankly, if all you can come up with is a strip joint then you’re wasting your opportunity!). But that means that this bachelor party needs a decent amount of time. At the very least you’ll want one full day and one full night, but what’s stopping you staying longer?
So, what can you do during the day for the man of the hour and his buddies?
What’s fantastic about New York is that there is no shortage of things to do. So consider the group you’re with and what they like and work around this. You could:
If you’re new to New York then everyone will be frustrated at wasting the opportunity if you simply spend it in a bar which could be done anywhere. Of course, you’ll need to shortlist what you want to see as it’s impossible in a day.
However, you can cram more in by enjoying a private party bus tour. You can visit the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty or check out the five distinctly different boroughs of Harlem, Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Coney Island. In short, you set the itinerary and you have a mighty good time getting from place to place. Turn it into a bar crawl, don your groom with a golden sash, and you might just score a free shot or two on the way.
There is always something new and different happening in New York. Combine the date with when something’s on that will suit your groom and you’ve got some ready-made winning plans. Check out sporting events at Yankee Stadium or Madison Square Garden. Catch some live music in Central Park. Or maybe there’s something that’s right up his hobby-street coming to town.
There are a ton of different experiences to be enjoyed in New York which will make for a memorable and unique bachelor party. Again, there’s so much to choose from. Push the boat out with a cruise, take to the skies with a helicopter trip, go bike riding in Central Park, enjoy a Greenwich Village walking food tour, or even have a Brooklyn graffiti lesson. Of course, Broadway shows are always a winner.
When the day is done, it’s time to move onto checking out some of the best nightlife that NYC has to offer. New York is famed the world over for incredible night life and you sure want to be part of it.
There are so many suggestions for an epic night on the town in NYC but here are some of our top suggestions:
Start the night in a rooftop bar. Why? Because when you’re still sober enough to appreciate it, the views are incredible. After all, you’re in New York – surely you should head to the top of at least one skyscraper!
There is a whole range to choose from. Lots are part of hotels, but you can usually grab a drink there even if you’re not a hotel guest. A few suggestions include 230 Fifth Rooftop Bar and Bar 54 at the Hyatt with an incredible view of the Empire State.
If you want some bars without a rooftop but which bring the NYC party vibe to you then check out Doha bar and Lounge or Barcade.
Put on your dancing shoes and check out the vibes in one or several of NYC’s fantastic clubs. You’ll be spoilt for choice but some favorites include The Rumpus Room, House of Yes and Electric Room.
If you’ve got some cash to splash then it’s worth organizing a VIP club night and partying like a celeb. There are lots of high class venues and you could consider 1 OAK, Cielo or Tao. A bucket of Champagne, private booths and more will make for a monumental night. Why not take a limo to get there?
If it’s considered an important element of your groom’s final send-off then NYC is of course bursting with strip clubs. A couple which are favored are Sapphire and Rick’s Cabaret. Of course, if you’re using a party bus for the best night ever then you could get a private stripper to be part of your on-the-road entertainment. Some of our buses even have dance poles…
Of course, all this day time and night time fun will require some fuel. There are so many restaurants in NYC so you can pretty much imagine what you want and it’ll be there. There’s even a saying that you can eat every meal at a different restaurant for 20 years here! It’s possibly an urban myth, but the sentiment is true!
There’s always somewhere that you can grab a hot dog, gyro or slice of pizza, but if you want a real meal then consider:
It’s very much a NYC trend to indulge in a boozy brunch, so it’s got to feature in a bachelor party itinerary. Indeed, if you’ve been partying hard the night before then a boozy brunch might be just what’s needed to get everyone going again. Check out Anejo for Mexican tastes or Pig and Khao for an Asian-style meal.
Make sure you and the boys have a decent dinner before a night of partying. Enjoy steak at Wolfgang’s. Enjoy Italian-American at Carbone. Feast on Far East dishes at Buddakan.
It’ll be tempting to party around the clock but if you’re making a weekend of this NYC bachelor party then staying over will be a must. The great news is that there are so many different places to stay which will elevate your experience.
Choose to stay in Midtown Manhattan as you’ll find that everything is within easy reach from there. Choose a hotel like the Intercontinental in Times Square if money is no object, or opt for an aparthotel or Airbnb. Many find that an apartment works perfectly for a bachelor party because there won’t be anyone trying to kick you out of bed for housekeeping in the morning, and a group of you can easily stay together.
You’re going to want to pack in loads of fun for a truly brilliant New York bachelor party. Heading from sights to brunch to experiences to bars and clubs, you’re going to need to think about how to get about NYC.
Make the transport part of the occasion by choosing a New York party bus. Not only will you all feel like VIPs, you’ll have a party venue moving with you from place to place. It’ll make sure that you’re all partying together, everyone can drink, and the fun never stops. What’s more, you don’t need to think about routes, public transit, or mounting taxi fares.
You can even bring along those props and decorations you’ve been hoarding but won’t know where to put when you don’t need them!
