A local’s guide to the best new Nashville Bachelorette party spots for that final “fling before the ring”.
Over the last decade, Nashville has become the Las Vegas of the South. Replacing the glamorous showgirls with rhinestone cowboys and the smoke-filled casinos with three story Honky Tonks. Combine that with a top-notch food scene, and you’ve got the new “it” city for a Nashville bachelorette party. Weekend after weekend, hordes of women descend upon the streets of Music City to drink up and get down as their bride-to-be celebrates the final single ladies weekend. In their matching tees, every party follows the same schedule: hop on a Pedal Tavern, sing their best rendition of Shania Twain and pose for a candid at the closest mural. The same tune, sung on repeat, each and every weekend. Sure, the typical Nashville bachelorette party is fun, but what if you’re looking for some spots outside the typical? Your bride wants to party – but more than just on Broadway. Here are five out-of-the-box ideas for your Nashville Bachelorette Party Weekend.

First, nobody does brunch like Nashville. With its extensive happy hour options and perfected dishes, there are unlimited options to jumped start your day. Our pick: Liberty Common. This new café and bar, sits comfortably on the banks of Riverfront Park, with views of the Pedestrian Bridge and Titan’s Stadium. The team takes its culinary cues from the dishes of the classic French bistro and combines it with classic Southern influence. The space itself is light, bright, and airy, with soaring ceilings and impeccable décor. The baby blue touches make you feel like you’ve stepped into Breakfast at Tiffany’s, but with a bold, modern twist. It has booths and a private room for big groups, which is sometimes tricky to find for big bachelorette groups. Bonus: when the weather’s nice, they have patio seating with views of Downtown Nashville. Mimosas in the sunshine? Yes please.
Hidden Bar at the Noelle Hotel

Next, a well-kept secret in Downtown Nashville (quite literally) is the ever-changing speakeasy at the Noelle Hotel, rightfully named “Hidden Bar”. It’s mysterious and provides an experience for your ladies like no other. The best part? You have to actually find the secret entrance. There is no sign. Once inside, this trendy must-see spot boasts extravagant décor, with inspiration from the decadence of France in the 1900s and rotating seasonal décor throughout the year. Over the holidays, Noelle really outdid themselves and created a Santa’s workshop type space, with an entrance that included a life-size stuffed polar bear. Besides the impeccable décor and close proximity to all things downtown, the drinks, vibe, and music at the Hidden Bar make it perfect for your bride-to-be. You can even get your portrait drawn for free by a local sketch artist on the spot. Ready to make your way there? All we can say is walk through the kitchen and ask for the maintenance closet.

After a big weekend of binge drinking and all-nighters, we can’t think of a better way to spend your Sunday than laying by a pool. But this experience is not your average hotel. The Cambria, located downtown on 8thAvenue, is inviting locals and guests to Sunday Funday by their rooftop pool all summer long. There will be pop-up partnerships with local breweries and distillers, curated playlists, contests with prizes, foosball, corn hole, and other entertainment. With booming music and boozy popsicles, this is one sunny spot you’ll not want to miss. Soak up that summer sun and get a little tan for your last day with your ladies.

Next, if your bride is looking for one activity that doesn’t involve drinking (or maybe she still does), Nashville has pampering options that are as unique as you. First up, the Candle Bar. We love this concept by Paddywax Candles, which involves a 1-hour class for groups up to 16. For less than $40, you learn how to create your own candle, with tons of options of candle vessels and scents. The class is BYOB and you can walk away with your own scented reminder of the big weekend.

Another place we love is the oil bar at Lemon Laine, a natural beauty and wellness shop in East Nashville. First, they learn all about your skin and what your needs are, then they blend your personalized oil formula and explain what benefits you can receive. All of this while you sip on complimentary beverages, chat and spend time in the beautiful designed space.
Finally, nothing girls love to do more than dance, amiright? Lucky for us, Nashville’s newest dance club is a Dream (pun completely intended). The new Dream Hotel describes it as, “Hidden amongst the shadows of Printer’s Alley, dark and seductive energy fuels Dirty Little Secret, an intriguing music and entertainment theater.” The lineup is always changing and the live performers and rotating DJs keep the beats going late into the night. Bring your ladies for a night of dancing you’re sure to remember. Pro tip: Ms. Kelli’s Karaoke Bar is directly across Printer’s Alley for a late-night pit stop and chance to belt that Celine Dion you’ve been waiting for.
