Picture this: Coronavirus is a thing of the past. All quarantines are lifted, people are ecstatic, and everyone is out doing fun stuff because their cabin fever has been so intense. The weather is hot and girls are dressing less (and checking out the fellas to tell ’em who’s best). Your testosterone levels are through the roof and you’re wondering where you can meet your beautiful summer fling. Here are the best places in the US and Canada to find your beach goddess in Summer 2020.
Toronto is home to some of the most beautiful women in the world. Many people believe it’s due to the mixed race backgrounds of the culturally diverse city. The bar scene is always hopping, and so are the clubs. As long as the border lock down as been lifted (by July 21st), check out the crowd on King Street at clubs and lounges like Citizen, Early Mercy and Parlour. The best part is the exchange rate, offering Americans 40% off their tab when converting to CAD.
New Orleans, Louisiana
“The Big Easy” is a 24 hour boozefest and a top destination for bachelor and bachelorette parties across North America. If you can handle the heat and the humidity, you will have no problem bumping into your fair share of single ladies on Bourbon or Frenchman Street. Bars like Bourbon Heat, The Maison and Ampersand are some of the venues offering the best chance of meeting your New Orleans fling. A hidden gem here is the pool scene, especially Sunday pool party at the W hotel, which runs all day until 9pm.
Chicago is the gem of the Midwest, and for good reason. It’s a clean, friendly city with a great food and bar scene, and they love their sports teams too. Whether you’re into bars, clubs, or lounges, Chicago has you covered. There are plenty of beautiful ladies out on the prowl between Wrigleyville, River North, Wicker Park and the South Loop. Bunny Slope (the ACME Hotel) has a hot tub. Berlin is known as a hook up bar. Federales is a taco joint by day and a singles bar by night. Slippery Slope is an upscale sports bar that gets flooded with single ladies at night. If you’re into skeeball, Slippery Slope is your spot. Chicago has it all, but remember; be nice.
Jersey Shore, New Jersey
The MTV show has portrayed the Jersey shore in a less than positive light, because in reality everyone you meet there won’t be an orange skinned alcoholic with a penchant for the fisticuffs. Between Belmar (Bar Anticipation), Sea Girt (Parker House), Point Pleasant (Jenk’s Club), LBI (the Sea Shell), and Atlantic City (Premier at Borgata and HQ Beach Club at Revel), you’ve got options for all tastes and age groups.
“Music City USA” is known for a bustling live music scene, Opryland, the famous Broadway Honky-Tonk Row, as well as countless daytime activities and a sizzling nightlife scene along the downtown corridors that will guarantee you and your buddies a great trip. Nashville is also the number one destination for bachelorette parties in the U.S., meaning that there are always groups of party-minded ladies around every weekend.
Tootsies Orchid Lounge is a red-hot bar with two live bands playing almost around the clock. Located at 429 Broadway in Nashville (across the alley from the Ryman Auditorium) Tootsies is one of the oldest bars in town and legend has it that there is an underground passageway that connects the bars to a nearby entertainment venue so that performers could have a few drinks before and after their acts. This bar even features a live webcam so you can check out the action anytime! In addition, Tootsie’s is also available for private bachelor parties.
Los Angeles, California
LA is a tremendous place and could really warrant it’s own category. You’ve got your trendy spots in Beverly Hills and West Hollywood, your hipster scene in Venice, and your standard Cali beach crowd in Santa Monica. Some of the top singles scenes to check out are The Bungalow, Elefante, 41Ocean, 31 Ten Lounge, or James’ Beach club. The rooftop at the Standard Hotel puts on an awesome pool party during the weekend.
Wherever you end up staying, you’ve got options. The city of angels is home to a plethora of aspiring actresses and models, so your odds of meeting a gorgeous girl are strong.
The Hamptons, New York
This is a lot easier if you happen to know someone with a place in the Hamptons, as it is a socialite-heavy environment. The Hamptons offers great outdoor bars and clubs, such as the Surf Lodge. Montauk Beach House, AM Southampton, and Ruschmeyer’s.
A suitable substitute location is Fire Island, New York. A bit of a younger crowd here, and it requires a ferry ride to get on the island. Bring your comfy boat shoes, as there are no cars on the island, so you’ll be doing a lot of walking. The best singles scenes depend on the day of the week. On Friday and Saturday nights Housers and The Sandbar at Ocean beach are solid spots. The live music at Surfs Out on Kismet is also a happening scene. For Sunday Funday, Flynn’s at Ocean Bay Park is the best spot, and it can get a little crazy.
A close second on our list, Miami offers some of the world’s most exciting nightlife and pool parties. Check out the pool scene at Hyde Beach at the SLS or Arkadia at the Fontainebleau. Hit the clubs at LIV, Story or Nikki Beach. Do some day drinking at the Clevelander. Check out the lounge scene at Bodega. Extend the party after hours at E11even. Anywhere you go will be an amazing scene with great music and beautiful people. Just be prepared to pay for real estate, as men get the best service and access when splurging for cabanas, tables and bottle service.
Las Vegas, Nevada
Sin City is the Mecca of pool parties and clubs, featuring the absolute best of the best nightlife in America. Vegas has the world’s best DJs, the most state of the art clubs, the largest pool parties and the most beautiful people, all in one place. It’s difficult to pinpoint a select few clubs and pool parties as the best, since there are amazing options at all points on and off the strip.
The most popular venues in each category are Omnia Nightclub at Caesar’s at Encore Beach Club. For a topless pool party, check out Bare at the Mirage. If you want to have a pool party with strippers, the Sapphire Day Club is the winning ticket. For after hours, the legacy winner here is Drai’s Club, on the rooftop of the Cromwell. Again, similar to Miami, the best experience men will have involves shelling out some extra cash for a cabana or a table.
Without that, you’ll be at the mercy of the doormen that may or may not give you access. If there is a particular club or pool you’d like to party at but you don’t want to pay the premium for bottle service, make sure you book your room at that specific casino, since most of the time hotel guests will get priority access over the general public. Have fun out there!
