Hard Rock Hotel and Casino

Hard Rock Hotel and Casino

4455 Paradise Road

While one can avoid the strollers and screaming toddlers at most other Vegas casinos, the Hard Rock is the one place where there won’t likely be any to begin with (the place is called “Hard Rock”: taking your kids here would just be bad parenting.) The only families you’re likely to see here are Mick Jagger and his daughter (if you’re lucky); beyond that this place caters to a younger crowd looking more to get hammered and party rather than get hammered and gamble. There’s always plenty of eye candy, the Joint is one of Vegas’ best venues for live music events, Vanity is a solid nightclub, and even the Center Bar has a good scene. If you’re lucky your party can even catch a reasonably-priced MMA event (please keep an eye on the drunk Bachelor; you wouldn’t want him picking a fight with Nick Diaz).

Venue Tip: 

Book a room in the HRH All-Suite Tower. The couches in the living area are big and comfy enough to actually sleep on, so cost-conscious bachelor party people can get a good value out of these rooms.

The Good: 
The Hard Rock is home to Rehab, where you can experience the biggest daytime pool event in Vegas, provided you can drag yourself out of bed on Sunday.
The Bad: 
Small (by Vegas standards) and off the strip: both make for a more intimate Vegas experience, but can also cramp your style if you’re looking for a large pool of potential tag-alongs or a halfway decent gambling experience.

Price: $$

Clubs/bars on premises: Vanity, The Joint, Center Bar

Best Feature: No kids. While this isn’t official policy, it’s a safe bet.

Pool scene?: Rehab at the Hard Rock pool is quintessential daytime Vegas pool party, so much so that they made a reality show about it: equal parts the Hills, Jersey Shore and Celebrity Rehab – all tossed into a massive swimming pool.
