For your first day in the Crescent City, grab lunch and a few brews at Gordon Biersch. This brewery restaurant serves up their own beer alongside made-from-scratch creative cuisine. After lunch, spend your afternoon exploring this lively city with all your friends.
At night let the drinks, dice and good times roll at Harrah’s New Orleans Hotel and Casino! Located in the heart of downtown New Orleans, Harrah’s is a great place to start the night. Begin with dinner at the highly acclaimed, The Steakhouse. Here, you and your crew can feast at the Chef’s Table for a dinner personally prepared by the restaurant’s Executive Chef.
Feeling lucky? Following dinner, head over to the casino! With over 100 table games, 20 poker tables and more than 1,800 slot machines, you and your friends can try your luck all night long. Play a game of Texas Hold’em, Omaha or 7 Card Stud with your entourage and up the ante by reserving a private gaming table just for you all to enjoy!
The fun doesn’t have to stop there. Aside from gaming and dining, Harrah’s offers an assortment of entertainment options. You and your bachelor party crew can party it up at Masquerade, one of the hottest nightspots in the city, featuring some of the best DJs, an ice bar and a VIP ultra-lounge.

Take a pit stop from the traditional bachelor party festivities and engage in some friendly competition at Nola Motorsports. This 700-acre park would be perfect for the groom-to-be with a need for speed. As home to the largest karting track in the country, you and your crew can enjoy 40 acres of pure go-kart racing fun, filled with hair raising twists and turns.
For something a little more extreme, strap on a helmet, hop in the driver’s seat and go head-to-head with your squad in some of the world’s best supercars. Choose from the Ferrari 458 Italia, Lamborghini LP560-4, Porsche 911 GT3 or the Nissan GT-R for some high-speed fun during your weekend bachelor bash.
Consider a track-side hospitality tent for the whole gang so you can kick back and relax with a perfect view of your friends battling nearby. With all inclusive packages that include luxury transportation to and from the track, champagne and more, you can enjoy hours of adrenaline pumping fun, surrounded by friends.
The night is still young! Get cleaned up, hop in a cab and head over to the Warehouse District. Here, you’ll find Barcadia— an eclectic bar that combines the nostalgia of childhood with flavors suited for the grown-up palette. Grab a drink or two from the bar’s extensive menu and channel your inner child with a game of Pac-Man with friends. With a menu full of gourmet grub and a matchless collection of vintage arcade games, you can eat, drink and play with friends until the early morning!
Wake up early and meet your captain for a charter fishing trip with Brock’s Charter Fishing. Relax on the water and reel in ‘reds. Or, sleep in before heading back home start your morning at New Orleans City Park with a cup of café au lait and beignets from Cafe du Monde.
After breakfast, stick around City Park for a relaxing game of golf. A traditional game is fine, but in New Orleans we have a way of making just about everything uniquely ours. While in the Big Easy for your last day, let tradition take the back seat as you tee it high and let it fly with a round or two of City Park Disc Golf.
