Why a Scottsdale Bachelor Party?
A lot of people trash talk about Scottsdale, saying either it caters to bachelorette parties more, or it’s too full of ‘fratty’ guys.
To that, we say… yep. Bars full of fun-loving and wildly flirty bachelorette groups are our ideal situation. And who do I call when I want to rage for the last time as a single man? The frattiest guys I know. I see your two complaints and raise you two more reasons for a Scottsdale bachelor party.
Yeah, some think that you need to buy a ticket to Vegas to throw a rowdy bachelor party from Friday afternoon to Sunday evening. That’s a great way to blow thousands at a casino and drunkenly give your wedding ring to a stripper. (True stories. Probably.)
Genuine bachelor party connoisseurs know that Scottsdale is the new hotspot for wild party scenes, adrenaline junkie desert adventures, and top-rated meals. On top of that, Scottsdale bars and clubs are packed with the hottest girls in the west. We don’t question it, we just count our blessings.
Have we convinced you to buy your plane ticket for a Scottsdale bachelor party yet? If so, here are our favorite Scottsdale clubs, restaurants, activities, and accommodations for a weekend you’ll never forget.
Things to Know Before Planning a Scottsdale Bachelor Party
Don’t look like an amateur when planning your Scottsdale bachelor party. Follow a few simple expert tips, and you’re good as gold.
- Book in advance. One lame time slot for an activity can throw off the rest of your day, from pushing back dinner to not leaving enough time to get ready for a night out. It sucks to feel rushed or just out of whack from a weird schedule, so the second you know what you want to do, book it and get the best possible game plan.
- I’m not going to sugarcoat it. If you’re planning a summer bachelor party in Scottsdale, you’re gonna sweat your balls off. There’s still a ton of fun to be had, but plan your dusty desert adventure for the morning and reward yourself with a refreshing pool party after.
- Are you planning to drink this trip? You better be pounding water. Direct sunlight, hot hot days, and endless drinks are all the ingredients you need for a wicked hangover that floors you for the rest of the weekend. If you want to rally, drink twice the amount of water you usually drink on a night out.
