Whelp, your best friend is getting married. He asks you to be his best man and you accept, dreaming about the almost-center-stage publicity of the whole affair and the prospect of being a part of the biggest day of his life. You’re so excited, in fact, that you forget that there is kind of a lot of responsibility for the best man before, during, and after the ceremony. The other groomsmen and the husband-to-be start asking about bachelor party plans; they’re all ready to party down for the last hurrah before entry into married life. No need to panic, best man; here at Pedal Hopper Denver, we’ve got some great ideas for a bachelor party for the record books. Whether you are a Denver native or have chosen Denver for your destination bachelor party, here are some suggestions to help you plan the Best Bachelor Party in Denver!
Nothing says “man party” and “this may be my last whiskey-binge with my bros” like visiting a whiskey distillery in the heart of Denver’s Baker neighborhood. Stranahan’s produces excellent, American single-malt whiskeys that have a distinct taste unlike other classics like bourbon or scotch and instead combining the peaty and sweet elements of them all for a product that is uniquely Colorado. These tours cater to the groom who is a true whiskey connoisseur. Pro tip: try and get the VIP tour. While the normal tour is still awesome (and free), the 2-hour VIP tour really lets you dive into the distillery process and taste some otherwise unavailable fine Colorado whiskeys.

This might be the most fun bachelor party activity you can find in the Mile High City. These mobile, pedal-powered bicycle bars can fit up to 16 people on a raucous romp below the skyscrapers in downtown Denver, visiting all of our favorite haunts and enjoying Pedal Hopper specials on drinks. Pedal Hopper tours are for bachelors that aren’t afraid to work for their fun, as you will be pedaling, and the faster you pedal the more bars you can check out on this bar crawl. Contact us at pedalhopper.com for pricing and to get your tour booked for your groom-to-be!
Coors Field is an iconic baseball stadium located in the heart of downtown Denver. We recommend the Rock Pile for a few reasons. First of all, the seats are cheap which leaves a lot of leftover financial room to buy beer for the whole crew. Also, from the Rockpile you’ve got stunning views of the skyline in Denver and the mountains to the west. You can get seats for as low as $15 a pop, and day baseball games mean there’s a lot of night left to keep the bachelor party going until the break of dawn!

Our friends over at My 420 Tours have an awesome Buds and Beer tour available to showcase some of Colorado’s finest and best-known products: craft beer and ganja. You and your entire bachelor party will get picked up in a 420-friendly party bus and be allowed to toke away while getting ferried around to some amazing Colorado breweries and tasting rooms. This bachelor party event is for those bachelors that love cold brew and heady buds, but if you’ve got people coming from low elevation make sure they take caution; it’s easy to overdo it with both beer and grass when you’re not used to the altitude!

Red Rocks is a local destination for hiking and concerts that everyone coming out for a bachelor party has to check out. Located just about 30 minutes west of Denver, this venue is worth checking out no matter what but take a look at their schedule to see if there’s a concert the future groom would like because this is a mind-blowing outdoor amphitheater with a great sound system that can make any genre of music pop. During the day, this venue is great for a bachelor who likes to get outdoors and hike through some amazing scenery and nighttime brings the party crowd from Denver for all kinds of concerts. It’s free to park and enter the venue during the day, but at night you’ll have to have tickets to get in.
