From Strippers to Steakhouses – and Everything in Between
You’re the best man, the groom’s old buddy, his lifelong pal. This should be your one chance to throw him the bash of a lifetime – so don’t screw it up! If you’re wondering where to begin, here are some bachelor party ideas to get you started on planning a night he’ll never forget.
Inevitably, at least one person in the group will insist that it’s not really a bachelor party unless naked women are involved, and he’s absolutely right.
The strippers are a must, you can choose to have dancers come to you or to go out to a strip bar. Hiring an exotic dancer to come to you — at the hotel — means you’ll get more undivided attention, and less overhead costs. On the other hand, a strip club will ensure that you won’t have to wait around for the dancers to show and you’ll get the camaraderie and energy of a club setting.
Something for the Sports Fans
For an athletic group of guys, try to catch a professional game!
Some good organized sports ideas for bachelor parties include:
- Hockey (Montreal Canadiens, NHL)
- Football (Montreal Alouettes, CFL)
- Soccer (Montreal Impact, MLS)
Keep it Classy With a First-Rate Steak Dinner
Hit one of the city’s best steakhouses, such as 40 Westt, La Queue de Cheval, Gibbys, The Keg, Moishes, or Rib’n Reef Steakhouse & Cigar Lounge and be prepared to eat large portions of premium beef. Afterward, take a limo to a whiskey and cigar bar where you can relax and swap war stories (aka advice from the married guys in the group). Or follow up the meal with a legendary strip poker party with some beautiful Montreal Strippers.
Don’t Bet on a Las Vegas Bachelor Party
An increasingly popular option is to get all of the groomsmen to splurge on a weekend trip together. And where better to go than the city whose motto is “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas”?
There’s no doubt Vegas can be fun for those without a budget.
Here are some differences between Las Vegas and Montreal
The Price: Montreal is almost half the price of Las Vegas.
-A 26oz bottle in a nightclub in Las Vegas can cost upwards of 500$ (USD), in Montreal that same bottle will cost around 300$ (CAD).
-Strip Clubs (touching) (vegas can’t)
-Montreal’s incredible cuisine.
The Women: Montreal is home to some of the hottest women in the world, and are some of the most liberal ones too!
Some night clubs can be notoriously difficult to get into, so be sure to dress your best (meaning no jeans or sneakers) and brave the bouncer’s velvet rope. Alternatively, you can hire party planners like MontrealX who will get you into all the hot clubs with no waiting. We can also arrange packages that include gentlemen’s clubs, dinners, limousine service, and more.
Tips for a Successful Montreal Bachelor Party:
Take limos. If you’re planning on hitting a couple different spots, and you’ve got at least six or seven guys, it’s not only more fun but also cheaper to rent a limo rather than taking cabs.
- Leave the cameras at home. While you know nothing bad happened, that picture of the groom’s face in a stripper’s cleavage may make the bride think otherwise. Some strip clubs even ban cell phones and force partygoers to check their phone for a steep fee.
- Set (and stick to) a budget. Otherwise, you may end up gambling away your life savings or giving it all to a beautiful dancer.
Living the Life With an Outdoorsy Bachelor Party
Picture it: surviving in the woods, hanging out with your bros, and attempting some potentially death-defying feats, all while drinking lots of beer. Rather than going the “been there, done that” route of a strip club bachelor party, test the groom’s limits in a different way with outdoors activities like camping, climbing, and hiking, whitewater rafting, wakeboarding, dirt biking, parasailing, skydiving, hang gliding, bungee jumping, skiing, snowboarding, hunting, and fishing. At the end of a jam-packed day, don’t forget to sit around the bonfire and share embarrassing stories about the groom’s ex-girlfriends and college adventures.
Coed Bachelor and Bachelorette Parties
The groom’s not looking to do anything he wouldn’t do in front of his fiancee, the bride’s got some good-looking friends, and you’re just hoping the maid of honor will help you with the planning. Whether it’s just a blowout house party or an evening of debauchery, a coed bachelor party can be a great solution. This is also a great solution for the increasing number of couples who don’t have a bridal party and thus must either forgo the rite of passage or have to plan it themselves.
Whatever you decide to do, make sure the groom is front and center in your planning. While you want everyone to have a good time, he’s the one who really matters. If he’s a low-key kind of guy, maybe a night of drinking (and ultimately, puking) is not the best idea. Also, keep in mind that there’s no reason you can’t do a combination of these bachelor party ideas — perhaps a golf tournament during the day, followed by a steak and cigar party that evening. Pick a few different activities and keep everyone happy.
