Is your friend getting married and you’re the one tasked with planning his bachelor party? No need to worry. The city of Los Angeles gives you plenty of options to tailor his sendoff into married life with class. Be it for a nature lover or for a man who appreciates a great burger, the following bars could be the frame for a celebration that will leave you both with unforgettable memories.

Seven Grand
515 W 7th St
Los Angeles, CA 90014
(213) 614-0737

For the bachelor who appreciates whiskey and perhaps a good cigar, the Seven Grand may be the perfect place to celebrate his last days of singlehood. If the bachelor happens to like jazz and blues, plan his party Monday through Wednesday when the bar features live music. The whiskey selection here is impressive but the full bar can accommodate anyone’s preferences. There are a few pool tables, TVs and well-balanced background music that will still allow your group to keep a great conversation.

The Village Idiot
7383 Melrose Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90046
(323) 655-3331

No pun intended! At The Village Idiot, your bachelor can satisfy his hunger with some really good food – mussels, fried chicken, crispy pork belly, fish and chips and a long list of other choices. The food can be accompanied by any of the many beers that the bar offers, but it is a full bar so any preference can be taken care of. This place has a casual atmosphere that requires no fancy wardrobe. It does not take reservations. If you have more than 10 people and would prefer a private room, The Village Idiot has one available where a family-style dinner could be arranged.

Yankee Doodles
1410 3rd St Promenade
Santa Monica, CA 90401
(310) 394-4632

If your bachelor is a sports man, Yankee Doodle cannot possibly disappoint. Known as one of the best sports bars in Los Angeles, the TVs (big and small screens and high-definition plasmas) at this place feature amateur and professional sporting events all year round. The ambiance is lively with 28 pool tables, a large food menu, a full bar, an arcade and an outdoor patio.

Lucky Strike (at LA Live)
800 W Olympic Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90015
(213) 542-4880

Located in one of the liveliest parts of downtown Los Angeles, Lucky Strike can provide the unique and memorable experience you want your bachelor to have. More than just a bowling alley, the theatre-style sound system, big screens, full bar and electronic show at this place make it a party atmosphere the minute you step through the doors. Anyone wanting to make even more of an impact can reserve the private Luxe Lounge which offers four private lanes and a HD projection screen where pictures of the bachelor’s best moments during his single years could be displayed.

Hotel Erwin’s High Rooftop Lounge

Venice Beach, CA 90291

For the nature-loving bachelor, a gathering overlooking the gorgeous Pacific Ocean could be perfect.
