Between Chippendales, Thunder From Down Under and “Magic Mike” showtimes and nightclub bottle service, Las Vegas bachelorette parties are about dropping inhibitions and having fun. To lean into the experience, visiting a strip club is often on the agenda – and the temptation to channel Jennifer Lopez in “Hustlers” might be too strong to ignore.

Since amateur nights aren’t allowed at Las Vegas strip clubs – it’s the law – booking a special event at a pole dance studio is the next best thing. I’ve danced with dozens of brides from around the world and have a few tips and tricks for crushing the experience.

Rock the Right Outfit

Dress for dance success. Slip into short-shorts and matching “bride tribe” shirts for the party. However, while high heels are a dancer’s favorite tool, those Steve Madden stilettos are better suited for the clubs. Stick to socks or go barefoot, unless your footwear involves an 8-inch heel and clear platform.

This class can be as athletic as desired, so don’t forget to bring the gym essentials. Water bottles, sweat towels and even snacks are acceptable – as well as a cheeky sip of bubbly. Electrolytes are important.

Know When to Go

Las Vegas pole dance parties are easy to plan. Most bookings last about two hours, so squeezing in this sexy experience between other scheduled activities is a breeze.

I tell brides to book a pole party before three big Las Vegas events. Dance before pool days because the sun zaps all the energy, dinner reservations for obvious reasons and club visits, before liquor kicks in and thwarts all other plans.

Make a Playlist

Brides are in control here, and the music is no exception. Create a bachelorette playlist before the fun begins or request the group’s favorite songs at time of booking. Instructors love suggestions and will create a playlist around the vibe of requests.

Need suggestions? I’m currently loving “Spicy Margarita” by Jason Derulo and Michael Bublé. “Pony” by Ginuwine and “Closer” by Nine Inch Nails are classic picks, and anything from The Weeknd’s discography is always a crowd favorite.

Keep an Open Mind

Pole dance classes are a liberating experience. A group of women gathering to share in the fantasies – and get a solid workout – has all the makings to be the highlight of a Las Vegas bachelorette. Don’t forget to take photos and videos, as souvenirs for the bridal party and sexy surprises for the future spouse.

Choose a Private Event

Las Vegas is a city where money goes to be spent. While it might be cost-efficient to sign up for a general class on a studio’s schedule, I recommend booking a private party.

This guarantees a private room and instructor, control of the music and space to play. Pole parties are a popular service in Las Vegas, so reserve at any of these fabulous studios:
