Places to Stay
Because Fort Lauderdale is such a popular area, especially in the summer, you’ll need to book your stay as soon as possible. There are plenty of hotel rooms and Airbnbs to choose from.
The W Fort Lauderdale is a large Marriot hotel only a few miles from the airport. You’ll find 2 infinity pools, a bar, and a spa. Rooms are around $485 per night.
If you’re aiming for ultimate luxury, check out The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale. It’s right on the beach and close to many bars and clubs. Rooms average $520 per night.
For a more affordable stay, browse sites such as Airbnb and VRBO. Many rentals on these platforms are more affordable and can accommodate large parties. Chat with the attending guests about splitting the cost of lodging.
Schedule Day Activities
No matter what type of groom and group you’re traveling with, there are tons of bachelor party ideas for daytime activities in this city. Chat with the groom about his favorite activities, and make it happen!
If you all aren’t sure what you’d like to do, we’ll offer some help.
An obvious daytime activity for any Flordia bachelor party is a beach day. Beach days fit any sort of budget and offer fun or relaxation.
Are you staying at a hotel on the beach? Order a few chairs and umbrellas for the group, and don’t forget the cold drinks. If anyone gets a bit too sick while celebrating on the beach, walking back to the room won’t take long.
Don’t worry if you’re not staying on the beach because there’s plenty of public beach access. Call an Uber from your hotel, or rent a car to pile everyone in at the same time. Make sure you packed the sunscreen.
Does the beach sound a bit too boring? Have fun on the water on a Fort Lauderdale booze cruise.
Research your options of booze cruises, and don’t forget to check out the maximum number of guests each boat can fit. You’ll also want to explore the different package types and make notes of the cost per person.
Depending on what you book, drinks may be provided or it may be a BYOB cruise. Confirm all details before your trip.
Get out on the green during your stay. There are plenty of courses to choose from, including the Ft. Lauderdale Country Club and Coral Ridge Country Club.
To make it easy for everyone involved, find a course near the place you’re staying. Traffic can be heavy much of the time in Fort Lauderdale, and you don’t want to miss any reservations later in the day.
Look at each course’s site to confirm the operating hours and costs.
Explore the Nightlife
While Fort Lauderdale is fun during the day, it lights up even brighter at night. Take a night or 2 to enjoy the bars and clubs the city has to offer.
Many bachelor parties enjoy deciding on a whim where to head for the night depending on quick Google phone searches or suggestions from the locals. However, if you want bottle service, you’ll often need to book ahead of time.
For a wild night of reggaeton and top hits, check out Euro Club. This club knows how to throw a party, and they offer exclusive promotions for VIP tables and bottle service.
Enjoy an amazing rooftop view at the Rooftop @1WLO. It’s a pricier venue for drinks, but the delicious light bites and view make it worth it. This is a great place to act classy before letting loose on a dancefloor.
If the groom enjoys small, local dive bars, look into Mickey’s 19th Hole Bar or Laser Wolf. These more intimate bars are great for meeting locals and enjoying more affordable drinks.
Don’t Forget the Food
To keep everyone happy, make sure their stomachs are full. Fort Lauderdale has plenty of places to either grab a quick bite or enjoy a decadent meal.
Head to The Wharf for games, food trucks, and craft cocktails. It’s a vibrant setting everyone in your party will love. The Wharf is great for a sunny day bite.
Are you craving seafood? Shooters Waterfront is a large restaurant serving up delicious seafood bites on the water. You’ll definitely want to make reservations for this place.
To cure any morning sickness, you’ll need a great breakfast spot. Jet Runaway Cafe, Lester’s Diner, and Joe’s Cafe are just a few of the affordable, delicious breakfast spots the city has to offer.
If what you’re really needing is a cup of coffee, there are plenty of local coffee shops to pop into during your stay. Try Brew Next Door, Magnolia Coffee, or Circle House Coffee.
