In America, a bachelor party is a man's pre-wedding rite of passage. Grooms in Australia also celebrate their final nights as single men in a celebration known as buck's night. While these two events are similar, the countries have some distinct differences in the way they party. If you're an Aussie traveling to the U.S. to celebrate a Las Vegas bucks night with your closest friends, you may be wondering what you can expect. In Las Vegas, the ultimate bachelor party destination, you'll find a multitude of places to see and things to do that you'd be hard-pressed to find in Australia.
Buck's Night in Australia
In Australia, bucks night is usually held one to two weeks prior to the ceremony, giving the groom a much-needed escape from wedding planning. While the main components of any good buck's night is beer, food, and friends, most groups engage in some fun activities such as paint balling, quad biking, fishing, golfing, or rally driving. Come evening, the guys usually partake in drinking games and gags. Strip club parties are also a common theme. These activities may occur over the course of a weekend or may extend for an entire week of fun and shenanigans.
One of the biggest traditions during a buck's night is surprising the groom in some way. Maybe it's something simple like hiring a stripper to perform a lap dance or taking him to his favorite restaurant for a nice dinner. If you prefer something a little out of the ordinary, consider some harmless pranks such as hiring an actress to be his “bride”. When the groom wakes up after a heavy night of drinking, he'll find his new wife and a marriage certificate waiting for him. These are just a few of the fun surprises you could expect to see on buck's night.
Bachelor Parties in America
Traditionally, bachelor parties consisted of gentlemen drinking, smoking, and socializing in the groom's home. Today, the American bachelor party is much different. The best man throws the party and invites friends and relatives of the groom – male only. While bachelor parties can take place nearly anywhere, many men prefer to include one or a combination of the following: bars, strip clubs, and casinos. Other men prefer to spend their freedom enjoying the great outdoors. White-water rafting, skydiving, and rock climbing are just a few of the incredible outdoor activities you can experience in Vegas.
In Las Vegas you'll also find some activities that are not widely available in Australia. Las Vegas is home to numerous pool party destinations that set the mood for the perfect summer bachelor party. You can find amazing pools at nearly any resort in the city, complete with beautiful, scantily-dressed women, mind-blowing DJs, and plenty of alcohol. Not sure where to start? Well, you can't go wrong with Bare Pool Lounge, Daylight Beach Club, Naked Pool, Drai's Beach Club, Rehab, Sapphire Pool & Day Club, Wet Republic, or Marquee Dayclub.
