Not your typical bachelor party

Dude – instead of taking that groom-to-be and the buddies to a noisy bar or a sketchy strip club for his bachelor party, why not treat him (and yourselves) to a relaxing day at the spa instead?

Yes, it may sound funny – the thought of a bunch of guys in robes listening to Enya doesn’t exactly compare to a wild night out. Most guys wince at the thought of getting any kind of facial or body treatment. Believe me, I know. But this is your chance for the groom, yourself and your friends to experience pampering and exceptional service that’s fit for a king.

Staying on the Strip? At the Stratosphere’s Roni Josef salon, the lucky groom, you and the boys can enjoy the Bachelor Party package. Start the day off with a  back, neck, shoulder and scalp massage. Your therapapist concentrates on the upper body to relieve stress and tension. Next, enjoy a European-style facial specifically designed for men’s needs. The service ends with a manicure and theraputic pedicure. No matter what you think or say, women are a sucker for soft hands and good lookin’ feet.

The Bachelor Party package is $215 for three hours and 15 minutes. Call (702) 380-7606. In addition to the Stratosphere location, there is also a Henderson location on Eastern Avenue and St. Rose Parkway and a northwest location on West Craig Road inside the Craig Marketplace. For information on the Henderson location, call (702) 992-6000; for information on the northwest location call (702) 992-6200.

Not only will you feel better after you leave, you won’t have to worry about a hangover on his big day. You’ll feel even more handsome and confident for the ladies. They’ll notice something different – with a bachelor party like this, it definitely won’t be dark circles under your eyes.




Most folks take their Vegas jackpot winnings back home, but my dad decided to stay here instead. That’s how I left Seattle almost 20 years ago. I moved from greenery and rainy days to hot summers, palm trees and desert. As much as I love my hometown, I decided to stick around Vegas. This city just has so much to offer. You don’t even have to be a gambler, bar hopper or an all-night partier. I love Vegas for its awesome vegan-friendly spots, concerts, swanky hotel suites and spas so big, they’re like castles. The pool scene is not too shabby either, which is why I love taking stay-cations. Besides living it up -- Vegas style -- I’m hanging out with my handsome hubby, adorable baby girl, two cats and super-fluffy Shih-Tzu. I’m also a huge fan of '90s music, shows and movies. You can find me on Google+ and Twitter.
