How to Throw Miami’s Best Bachelor Party

Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life.  

But let’s be honest. Your bachelor party is up there too. 

Which means when you are planning a bachelor party for one of your best bros, you simply cannot drop the ball.

In this article, we’ll help you plan the best Miami bachelor party of all time. We’ll look at everything from venues to music to activities to help you plan your perfect Miami bachelor party getaway.

Why Miami Is The Best City for Bachelor Parties

Choosing the right location is one of the keys to throwing the best bachelor party ever. So let’s be upfront: Miami is the perfect city in which to throw the greatest party your boys will ever have.

For starters, think about the weather. 

43% of bachelor parties take place in the spring and 42% take place during summer. Why not have your party someplace like Miami where it’s just like summer all year round?

Beaches. Pool parties. Fruity drinks with little umbrellas in them. It’s all available in Miami every day of the year.

But Miami is not just about the weather and the beach (although they help a lot).

Miami has some of the coolest neighborhoods in the world. They highlight the incredible diversity, culture, and vibrancy of this amazing city.

From the street art and foodie vibes of charming Wynwood to the haute culture trendiness of Brickell to the art deco vibes of South Beach, Miami’s incredible neighborhoods have a little something for everyone.

Miami has endless activities that can help you create the perfect bachelor party for your bff. Catch some funky jazz while sipping on a dry tempranillo or bordeaux in midtown. Surf the bay in a rented party yacht. Imbibe some craft cocktails at a hidden speakeasy Or simply dance your behinds off at some of the best dance clubs the world has to offer.

In Miami, boredom isn’t a thing.

Budgeting and Length of Stay

Of course, there is no limit to how long or how much you should spend on your bestie’s bachelor party. This is going to be one of the highlights of their life, and you want to make it a time to remember. That said, you also want to be realistic about how much people in your party are willing and able to spend.

Once upon a time, bachelor parties were a night out. But now they are multi-day extravaganzas. In fact, sixty percent of bachelor parties are now at least 2 days long while about a third last three days or more. 

The average cost of a bachelor party tends to be around $1,000 per person total, although some spend closer to $800 on a one or two day affair.

Ten percent of attendees spend $4,000 or more for a bachelor party, so you definitely can also level up your fun and partying to the max.

And while twenty percent of attendees do spend $200 or less for the whole affair - we’re not going to recommend this if you want a truly memorable experience.

Where to Stay in Miami

When it comes to the best places to stay in Miami for a bachelor party, you have a variety of options. It’s helpful to look at the different pros and cons of accommodations to figure out which is the best choice for your group.

Start with your budget. Are you going balls-to-the-wall, expenses be damned? Or is your group money conscious? This will determine how luxurious your accommodations can realistically be.

Even if you opt for a luxury resort, not all luxury resorts are created equal. Different hotels and other accommodations have a wide variety of price points. You can use price aggregators to help you determine the best deals in town for your chosen dates.

Also, decide on which amenities are essential. How many different dining and music options do you want close by? How many pools do you need at your hotel? How luxurious does the spa need to be? How close do you want to be to a casino?

Location is also a major determinant of price. Hotels right in the heart of the South Beach scene may have different price points from resorts a bit more on the periphery of town.

But being on the periphery of town may also have its advantages in terms of privacy and seclusion when desired, access to interesting neighborhoods, and different and unique activities.

Make sure you get a sense from your entire group which of these factors is more important. If your party is budget conscious, you might want to look for a more affordable hotel or even an Airbnb.

But if a wide variety of luxuries and amenities is key for your ultimate bachelor blast, the top resorts in Miami are where you’re going to want to book.

Getting to and Around Miami

Getting to Miami

If you happen to already live near the Miami - Fort Lauderdale area, driving to your ultimate bachelor party destination is easy enough. And it’s true that 42% of bachelor partiers drive to their destination.

Several major highways run through or connect with Miami, including I-95, I-75, and the Florida Turnpike. Just make sure to use Google maps or Waze to anticipate traffic patterns and leave yourself enough time to avoid stress.

But you shouldn’t let distance stop you from partying in the world’s best city for bachelor parties. You can easily fly from anywhere to Miami. Miami International Airport (MIA) is the city’s primary hub, but Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) is only 30 miles north and may be a less expensive or more convenient option for some.

While most people won’t travel by train, Amtrak does service Miami. There is also Brightline, the high speed rail service that connects West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami. If you’re local and looking to avoid dealing with your car, trains may be a convenient option and more affordable than Uber ride shares.

Getting Around Miami

Once in Miami, you have a number of options for getting around town. If you bring your own cars, just make sure you always have a designated driver if you’re going to be drinking. But using a car to get around town also means you’ll have to look for parking, which can be challenging in Miami’s more popular neighborhoods.

Miami does have some public transportation. While this can be affordable, it’s admittedly not always the most convenient option. For example, the Metrorail may get you from downtown to Coral Gables or the airport, but it’s not going to help you get to the clubs in South Beach. If you’re staying local with the Brickell and Downtown areas, the Metromover is also an option. The Metrobus may also be convenient at times, and certainly is an affordable choice.

Within and around Miami, Uber and Lyft ride shares remain your best bet. They will help take you around town or to the beach no matter how much alcohol you’ve consumed. And they can also take you to more peripheral areas like clubs in Fort Lauderdale or in the city of Hollywood. Make sure you allot some budget with your bachelor party friends to pay for your ride shares.

Most Popular Miami Bachelor Party Activities

Dinner and Drinks

Dinner and drinks remain the most popular bachelor party activity. And you’ll find no shortage of restaurants to accommodate you in Miami, from the most casual to the finest of luxury dining.

If you’re in the mood for red meat, why not try one of Miami’s famous steakhouses like the trendy STK Miami Beach or the celebrity-centric spot Prime 112?

Or for more eclectic or ethnic fare, maybe try Brickell’s southeast Asian fusion mecca Komodo, the famous and casual Cuban icon Versailles in Little Havana, or even Wednesday night’s “My Boyfriend Is Out of Town” “single” and mingle vibes at Baoli.

Once you’ve had your fill of Miami’s fine dinner options, you’re going to want to turn your attention to the most party part of your bachelor party evening. Groups tend to be evenly split when it comes to where to go for drinks after dinner. About 30 percent of bachelor party participants like a bar or pub crawl, while another third opts for dancing and clubbing.

But why choose when you can do both if you’re feeling it? Take the temperature of everyone in your group beforehand to figure out which venues will most vibe with your party. Miami is filled with 

  • Rooftop bars 
  • poolside bars 
  • late night dance clubs 
  • craft cocktail and beer specialists 
  • speakeasy spots

and more.

Other Bachelor Party Activities

When it comes to party activities, don’t sleep on spending a little time at the casino. While not as famous for its slots and cards as Las Vegas, Miami has premiere gambling rooms and tables as well.

And with 22% of bachelor party participants saying gambling is an activity highlight, spending part of your night or two at the tables may be an excellent option for your group.

Looking for some other ideas for activities to fill your days and nights? Why not try one of the following:

  • Ax throwing
  • Water sports (jet skis or parasailing perhaps?)
  • Renting a yacht or chartering a fishing trip
  • Escape rooms
  • A day on the golf links or lying out on the beach

Miami truly has more options for bachelor party activities than any other city we know of. So why not take advantage of its multitude of fun things to do?
