Sure, you’ve been to bachelor parties before but you’ve never planned one before. There are the basics to planning a bachelor party but essentially, you want the bachelor party to one that he’ll never forget and in order to do that, you have to think outside the box. The first step in doing that is finding the perfect location.

Where is the most visited destination that people go to for bachelor parties? If you guessed Las Vegas, then you guessed correct! Las Vegas is definitely a fun location for bachelor parties but you want to pick somewhere different… but where? How about NEW YORK!

Why New York?

New York has the nickname of being called the “City that never sleeps” and rightfully so. Did you know that New York has 54 million visitors each year? The official website of the city of New York reported that statistic but that’s all the more reason to celebrate your best bud’s last hoorah because when it comes to having a good time, the more the merrier!

The other reason for planning the bachelor party in New York is because it has something for every type of person. There are activities and attractions for party animals and there are activities and attractions for ladies men, sports-loving men, and every man in between! You just have to get there to believe it.

So as the best man, let’s take a look at your guide to planning the ultimate bachelor party for your best bud… the groom.

Take in the Sites

For those that have never been to New York, whether it’s you, the grom, or the guys in attendance, the first thing you’ll want to do is make sure you have a good selection of attractions and entertainment options to choose from. From the Statue of Liberty to Niagara Falls, you’ll want to make sure you and the guys have plenty of entertainment to keep you occupied.

***Side Note***

Make sure you set up transportation accommodations before leaving for New York. With this being a bachelor party, it’s a guarantee there will be immense drinking and you don’t want to run the risk of trying to navigating through the city intoxicated.

Your best bet to transport everyone comfortably and safely would be to rent a charter bus. If you were to calculate the costs of an Uber, rental car, or cab service, you’d see that a charter bus is the most cost-effective way to get around the city.

For the Sports Enthusiasts

For the guys attending the bachelor party who are sports fans, there are several opportunities for sports-themed activities. Depending on the time of the year you plan the bachelor party to take place, you and the fellas can take in a few professional games from some of New York’s top teams, including:

  • New York Knicks
  • New York Yankees
  • New York Jets
  • Harlem Globetrotter

If some of you all enjoy actually playing sports more than watching them, then New York has all kinds of locations to do indoor and outdoor activities. Activities such as bowling, golfing, rock climbing, and batting cages (among many other activities) are all available to meet the needs of everyone in the group.

For a Little Nostalgia

If the groom is having his bachelor party with friends that he grew up with, it might be fun for everyone to engage in a little nostalgic fun. Places like Modern Pinball NYC and Spin are great places to turn back the hands of time and engage in a little childhood rivalry.

Nighttime Festivities

You and the guys might have had fun day drinking the day away but there’s just something about nightlife that makes your drinks taste better and everything is just flat-out more fun. The nighttime festivities is when you need to make sure that everyone is aware that if you all are going to go out on the town in New York, you’re going to do it in style so they need to pack accordingly.

For stepping out on the town, you’re going to want to head to places like Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club, Whiskey Tavern, and the Iron Horse. You can even take it a step further and go on a party cruise on the New York Harbor.

Those are just a few locations in New York that you and the crew can have a classic night out on the town.

Eat Like a New Yorker

They say the quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach… well, for the most part, it’s the absolute truth. Men love food and New York is the ultimate location for foodies all over the world. You and the guys will be able to eat food from all over the world and know that’s it’s authentic.

I hope this guide helps you in planning one of the most memorable moments in your best friend’s life. It’s always an honor to be the best man and in that role, you have to make sure it’s one for the books!
