Thankfully, you don’t have to be a star to party like one.
It’s really just a matter of knowing where to go, when to get there and who to get there with; the rest is child’ play.
To assist you in this worthwhile endeavor, here are the Top 10 Places to Party Like a Star.
10. The Beverly Hilton
While not much to look at from the outside, unless you appreciate Brady Bunch era architecture, the Beverly Hilton hotel is one of many Hollywood area iconic gathering places. Sure, they’ll charge you $100 bucks just to get into the lobby, but if you’re going to party like a star you have to at least pretend money is no object. If you’re lucky, and into that sort of thing, you may even bump into a real-life star.
9. Your Garage
Just in case you thought the entire Top 10 Places to Party Like a Star list would be comprised of nothing but posh, outrageously expensive spots like #10, I bring you the garage. It may take a bit of cleaning up (those oil spills on the floor could be a party-goer hazard), but one thing stars have in common when it comes to putting on a good party is the locale; the weirder the better.
There are some houseboat locales fairly well-known for their outrageously fun parties, and party-goers; Shasta and Tahoe come to mind (at least what I can remember of them). Getting your crew onto a houseboat and cruisin’ the lake absolutely demands fun, it’s almost impossible to not enjoy yourself. Plus, there’s the added enjoyment of betting on who’s going to get sick first; water always has that effect on someone during the course of a long day of houseboating. Might as well make it interesting.
To party like a star at a restaurant takes some planning; but you’ll find it well worth the effort. First, no staid, demure environs; it needs to be the gathering spot of the city for the young, hip and oh-just-look-at-me types. Second, kick them all out by reserving the entire joint, which you must agree is very star-like. Then, find the local garage band (they will have recovered from Party Like a Star venue #9 by now-we hope) and let the party begin.
6. Amusement Park
This is fairly wide open. By that I mean you and your crew can hit Disneyland, Disneyworld, Six Flags or even Dollywood. The point is getting out, riding rollercoasters until everyone has lost their lunch and basically acting like children again. And you don’t need to be a Hollywood or music industry insider to know stars can certainly act like children.
5. The Pool
A day of lounging, seeing and being seen, and occasionally taking a dip in the pool being careful not to get your hair wet makes for a very star-like party atmosphere. If there are no electric outlets, make certain to bring along the battery-powered blender. You can’t have a pool party without Margarita’s. I’m not certain, but I think that’s a misdemeanor in most states, and worthy of a felony conviction in California.
U-haul’s are not usually associated with a party, which is exactly what makes them perfect for those who want to party like a star. As we all know, stars like to do things a bit different than most, basically because they can. So, tell the guy at the rental counter you won’t need any boxes, just the keys and an empty truck. Now, find the designated driver, pick-up everyone you know, and maybe a few people you don’t, and you’re off. One caveat; try and remember how to get home, taking a wrong turn can end up costing you, big time.
3. N’Orleans (also known as New Orleans)
Perhaps the party Mecca of the western hemisphere, no city parties like New Orleans during Mardi Gras. And, like any respectable party like a star enthusiast the key is to not to stay in one place too long; very uncouth don’t you know. With a cab at the ready, it’s key to leave just as everyone is about to have fun. When it becomes apparent your group is laughing and enjoying themselves, that’s when you’re obligated to scream “time to roll!” It’s clearly outlined in the party like a star handbook; page 23, paragraph two.
One of the all-time party spots for stars and star-wannabes, there’s no place like Las Vegas. The casino you opt for doesn’t really matter all that much, if you’re spending time in your room you’re not trying nearly hard enough. Hire a limo for a few hours, stop by the liquor store and you and your 27 best friends (you’re gonna need a big limo) are ready to set the place on fire. Oh, avoid the shows and gambling, when you party like a star your chi must be focused on the task at hand, not distracted by losing all your money.
1. Secluded Island
Okay, back to the outrageously expensive but oh-so-cool star party spots. If you or your friends don’t actually own a small, secluded island paradise fret not; they can be had for few mil. Concerned about investing in real estate in this upside down market? Maybe a 2-week lease is the way to go. Either way, bring your snorkel gear, Jamaican Rum and reggae CD’s; partying like a star in the islands requires a Bob Marley inspired tribute or two.
