Each year, millions of people go to Las Vegas to have a raucous, fun-filled time, yet most of those who choose to hold their bachelor or bachelorette escape there, no matter how rambunctious, would rather not lose a tooth, displease Mike Tyson or find a Bengal tiger in their room, a la “The Hangover.”
Luckily, Sin City’s grand fun-inclusive hotels and commissionable VIP hosting companies markedly lessen the possibility of a last-minute dental or hospital emergency.
Steve Mason, CEO of Club Viva Las Vegas, says that booking through companies such as his is more advantageous than having clients organize something on their own. “We do the organizing so that our guests only have to enjoy the partying. Our expertise allows us to design a package that precisely fits the client’s needs and our buying power means it is often priced below what the client would pay by doing it themselves,” he states.
Among Club Viva’s “10 Commandments of Vegas Clubbing”: Don’t assume that Vegas nightlife rules are fair; don’t arrive at a club in a large party and expect to talk your way in; don’t think that because you’re a big shot back home you’ll be somebody in Vegas. That’s where VIP companies such as this one come in—they take care of clients’ wild nights without blinking an eye. “At Club Viva, Vegas nightlife is all we do. We don’t sell show tickets, tours, hotels or travel and therefore are perfectly positioned to become your non-competitive partner for the provision of high-quality nightlife services in Las Vegas.”
The majority of their packages are custom designed for clients, he explains, but the Club Hop Party is their most popular for both men and women; available for as low as $49, it includes transportation through the night on the Club Viva executive bus (with free shots on board), plus cover charges and VIP entrance to three top nightclubs. Depending on the night, these can include PURE at Caesars Palace, LAX at Luxor and the Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay.
If they’d like to stay at Mandalay Bay, guests can book the H Suite for when they find time to sleep or to host a smallish soiree of about 20 close friends for about $420 per night. Here they’ll also find Moorea Beach Club, a “top-optional” adults-only poolside day club with private pavilions and dipping pools.
Las Vegas may be the most obvious party city we can think of, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to put a last-nights-of-freedom getaway together once you’re here. “Las Vegas is, in my opinion, the most fun city in the world, and the old saying, ‘It’s not what you know, but who you know’ holds true in this town,” states Jimm Freedman, sales manager at Bachelor Vegas. “Let an expert plan [a client’s] Vegas bachelor party. It is well worth the money to not wait in line anywhere and know everything is taken care of.” According to Freedman, nightclubs are the most important thing, and not waiting in line is the biggest must. “The simplicity of having someone experienced in party planning handle everything for you is a benefit, but the biggest advantage is the personal VIP host you get on your evening out. They are there to make sure every part of your package gets fulfilled in a quick, professional manner,” he explains. Some of Bachelor Vegas’ most popular offers are inspired by what we’ve seen on screen. “For men, the Hangover package is one of the most popular because it mimics the crazy night from the movie,” says Freedman. “At $359 pp, it is not the cheapest option, but includes everything from limos, dinner, VIP gentlemen’s club access and bottle service at your own private table on the terrace at PURE nightclub in Caesars Palace. For women, it’s the Girls Night Out package, which includes limos, male review and VIP nightclub access for $99 per girl.”
