With appearances in both Ocean’s Eleven and Swingers (Trent: So, what'd you think of that Dorothy girl? Mike: The whole Judy Garland thing kinda turned me on), the MGM’s legacy in Vegas bachelor lore is pretty rock solid. What’s there to do beyond Pitt-Clooney impressions at the bar? Well, the MGM Grand is a chameleon: it went from emerald city theme to golden age Hollywood theme to its current incarnation, which is, well, just BIG. The folks at MGM decided that simply being the biggest-damn-thing-on-the-block with literally something for everybody - even if that something is recreating an episode of CSI - will draw the masses. And they’re right: The MGM offers your party the classic, massive casino experience in a good location and at a reasonable price.

Venue Tip: 

Get plastered and seek out the Sigma Derby Horse Racing game near the Grand Buffet entrance. It is ridiculous and stupid and unbelievably fun.

The Good: 
We’re not sure if this is good or bad, but the main gaming room floor is enormous. You may lose the Bachelor or other members of the party, but you can also slink away to play video poker without the others clowning (or even noticing).
The Bad: 
The food court, the pool complex, the concerts - sometimes MGM Grand doesn't draw the best of the best people from the Strip through their doors.

Clubs/bars on premises? Hakkasan is one of the best clubs in Vegas. West Wing Bar, Rouge, and Centrifuge all offer easier cocktail consumption.

Best Feature: The Lazy River. Sure pool parties are a solid scene, but can you really beat floating on an inner-tube with a bucket of Coronas in the middle of the desert?

Pool scene?: A study in contrasts: There’s the Wet Republic Ultra Pool, featuring eight pools complete with bungalows, cabanas, and models clad in tiny bikinis or the Lazy River, a winding, inner-tube filled loop of drunkeness.
