The Man Registry: The Bachelor Party- Avoid Bars that HATE Bachelor Parties

by Azure

About The Man Registry If I could do my bachelor party all over again, I would only change one thing (well, two if you count calling a bartender a Cincinnati Bengal as a bad thing). My friends and I didn’t properly prepare for the fact that some bars and clubs refuse to let bachelor parties (aka groups of drunk men) in the door. This is a shame, but apparently the old adage applies... a small percentage of people ruin it for everyone else. As future Best Men and grooms, I’m sure...
