Bachelor Party Alternatives in Vancouver

For the next bachelor party among your buddies, skip the stripper cliché and opt for something more highbrow. But only slightly more highbrow: These options all involve scantily clad women working up a sweat; it’s guys’ night out 2.0.

Kitty Nights Burlesque
Billed as “comedy, glamour and saucy striptease all rolled into one,” this event showcases a different lineup of burlesque dancers every Sunday night, including international guest stars and local favourites like Girls On Top. VIP seating – and other perks – available for groups of eight or more. Biltmore, 395 Kingsway, 604-676-0541.

B.C. Lions Felions
The best thing about B.C. Lions’ games might not be the football at all; the Felions Dance Team are nothing if not entertaining. They won’t do bachelor parties, but they are available for corporate events.

Terminal City Rollergirls
Fast, tough and irresistibly violent, the rollergirls offer athletic entertainment like no other. See them in action here. Sadly, the regular season is now over, but the league is hosting a fundraiser this Friday, so you can meet the girls and witness the unveiling of the new team. Check the calendar for games in the New Year.

Pole Dancing at Tantra Fitness
You won’t just watch semi-safe-for-work pole dancing at this studio, home of Miss Pole Dance Canada 2010; you’ll get in on the action, too. Tantra offers Jack and Jill Fridays – co-ed pole dancing classes open to all levels. If you’re more an observer than a participant, you can book Tantra’s in-house performance group, Infusionesque, for a private party. 105-1715 Cook St., 604-738-7653.
