Having a bachelor party in downtown Las Vegas isn’t just a unique experience, it’s a value The Strip simply can’t beat.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to hosting the ultimate bachelor party downtown.
Step 1: Pack Up – We’re Going to Vegas

Here are the most popular places to stay downtown.

The California Hotel & Casino
The California, or “The Cal,” brings the hospitality and aloha spirit of the Hawaiian Islands to Las Vegas. If you’re looking for a more tropical atmosphere and comfortable island accommodations, this is the place to be. Kick your feet up for a delicious bowl of oxtail soup or spam musubi before grabbing a cocktail at Holo Holo. It’s the perfect destination to start the night, but an even better place to end it!
The Fremont Hotel & Casino
If you want to be right in the middle of all the action, the Fremont Hotel & Casino delivers all the energy and excitement with Downtown Las Vegas right outside its doors. It’s as easy as jumping on the elevator from your room or deluxe suite, and you’re there, with all the gambling, drinking, dining and entertainment you can handle.
Golden Gate Hotel & Casino
There’s a reason Golden Gate is known as the “Las Vegas Original.”
First opened in 1906, this iconic Sin City destination has withstood the test of time by always evolving but continuing to deliver the vintage charm of Vegas’ golden era. The stunning remodeled rooms, dancing dealers, bikini-clad bartenders and generously poured drinks make for the perfect bachelor party combination.
Four Queens Hotel & Casino
Four Queens has been a favorite in Las Vegas since opening its doors on Fremont Street.
Offering several luxury accommodation options, including large standard rooms, Royal Suites and Regal Suites, they have just the right room for you and your bachelor party squad (without having to break the bank). Request a room with a view for a scenic look at the downtown Las Vegas skyline.
Main Street Station Casino, Brewery & Hotel
Looking for something a little different? Main Street Station is not your typical casino.

If that sounds amazing, you’ll love their Victorian-themed rooms.
