The Bellagio is like the smaller, slicker version of Caesars: Same great real estate (right in the heart of the Strip’s action) and same Roman-esque theme (which is, let’s face it, badass) -- but more luxurious all around. Everyone always talks about the massive fountain out front (which, we will admit, is a site to behold at least once: 8 acres of water beats a coy pond I suppose), but in case your bachelor party isn’t going for a hydrology theme, rest assured the Bellagio has got more than pulsating jets of water going for it. The Starting Gate – basically an extension of the Bellagio’s swank sports book -- is one of the cooler sports bars in town, the restaurants on-site are some of the best in Vegas and the casino is great for gambling or being hit on by drunken Asian businessmen.
Get plastered and go see “O,” thus recreating Paul Rudd and Jason Segal's hilarious I Love You, Man outing (minus the shrooms). Are we sure they weren't at any of the bajillion other Cirque performances in Vegas? No. Do we care? No.
Clubs/bars on premises: The Bank, Caramel, Fontana Bar
Best Feature: The Buffet: it’s Vegas-renowned.
Pool scene?: There’s the Pool Bar, where you’re likely to find some eye candy, but it’s not exactly a Spring Break atmosphere out here. Still, decked out in Mediterranean style, it’s one of the nicer pool areas of any casino on the Strip. If only there were toga-clad girls feeding you grapes (btw, frozen grapes ARE available at the Pallazio's Azure).
