Bachelorette parties are the ultimate way to celebrate a bride’s final fling with her closest friends. Whether you choose to celebrate with food, at the spa or by hitting the dance floor, Atlanta has a plethora of venues for every personality. We’ve rounded up the best places in and around Atlanta to help you plan a memorable day, night or weekend, whether the bride-to-be is classically "girly," wild, active or sophisticated.
Ideas for the Girly Girl
If the bride-to-be considers herself a traditional "girly girl" who enjoys manis, tea, and shopping, this is for her.
An ultra lush day of pampering is a must, and there’s no better place to indulge than Buckhead. Drop by the luxe spa at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, home to the largest spa in Atlanta, complete with steam, sauna, and an outdoor terrace perfect for sipping champagne between treatments. We recommend the exfoliating ocean and earth body wrap or a soothing aroma stone massage.
Or bring the spa to you. The Soothe app is like the Uber of messages. Order a treatment and the therapist comes right to your doorstep. Get a massage seven days a week starting at just $99.
End your day with a private dinner at the chic and feminine St. Cecilia. Celebrate with the glamorous Mint Condition signature cocktail: cucumber Stolichnaya vodka, mint vermouth, St. Germaine and a lime. St. Cecelia offers several light plates, perfect for sharing, or you can go with a pasta tasting, where, for just $55 a person, you'll get an exclusive chef-guided lesson on cooking five types of pasta.
St. Cecilia’s fun, convivial atmosphere is perfect for groups of all sizes. Call ahead to snag the largest tables serving 10 or 14 people, or for something even more personal, book the private dining room.
Finish the weekend with Sunday brunch at the Ritz-Carlton Buckhead. Order from the menu or try the buffet, with a carving station, scrumptious desserts, house-smoked salmon, fresh pastries and more.
Ideas for the Wild Child
Atlanta is a great city for a wild, fun-filled bachelorette party. Try a pole dancing class at Pole Dance 411. You'll learn some new moves for the upcoming wedding night and get a good workout, too. The studio teaches pole, lap dancing, twerking, go-go, and other dance techniques. You can also book a private party.
For dinner, head to Two Urban Licks for live music, a fiery American menu and an even better wine list (they have a 26-foot, wine-on-tap wall that holds 72 barrels of wine).
Your wild weekend wouldn’t be complete without a night on the town. Some classic Atlanta nightlife options include Cosmopolitan and Lava Lounge. End your night at Opera, one of Atlanta’s top nightclubs and a favorite for bachelorette parties. Make sure to mention you’re with a bachelorette party for VIP treatment. You just might be allowed to cut all lines and receive free admission and a bottle of champagne on the house.
Ideas for the Active Bride
Got a bride-to-be who's a bit sporty and loves a good fitness challenge?
Start your bachelorette party off by checking into the Loews Hotel in the heart of Midtown Atlanta. Get your sweat on with one of six jam-packed workout sessions (from barre to Pilates, yoga, and cycling) at the hotel’s exhale spa, named the Best Fitness Hotspot by Women’s Health—perfect for the bride who never stops moving.
Afterward, get rejuvenated at the hotel's spa, which offers fabulous facials and massage therapy, and then head to the hammam, or Turkish bath (it’s the only one in the state) for some relaxation time with the girls.
Walk across the street to Empire State South for dinner, where you’ll find incredible Southern-inspired plates alongside an outdoor courtyard with bocce ball and a top-notch wine list.
Keep the adventure going at The Painted Pin, a hip, adult twist on your typical bowling alley. Dishing up gourmet meals and craft cocktails, along with complimentary games, live music, and dancing, The Painted Pin is the ultimate stop for off-the-beaten-path bachelorette parties. Reserve a lane for a one-of-a-kind night. The alley doesn't take weekend reservations past 5 p.m. so plan for an afternoon reservation to take full advantage of the awesome semi-private event space and indoor courtyard for gaming or choose to arrive early that night to beat the crowd.
