Welcome to Nashville, the bachelorette party capital of the US!
While the bride has been busy with the wedding planning, her friends get the fun task of bachelorette party planning. Don’t leave this important job up to chance. Plan ahead and make reservations. Don’t forget the party favors! That way, when it’s time for the big bachelorette weekend, you can relax and have a good time.
Bachelorette party planning can be stressful, so we’ve done the work for you. We came up with seven ideas that everyone will enjoy, and we saved the best for last. But don’t skip ahead!
1) Brunch At Dolly Parton’s Rooftop Bar
Start your party weekend with brunch and mimosas or craft cocktails at Dolly Parton’s lovely restaurant, White Limozeen. The restaurant is conveniently located at the top of the Graduate Hotel, in the heart of the city.
They offer both indoor and outdoor seating, with signature Dolly Parton-themed decor. Get a table outside and enjoy the impressive city view from the rooftop bar.
2) Private Cruises On The Cumberland River
Enjoy the view from a private boat on the Cumberland River. Take a two-hour private cruise from one of the many boat companies with docks on the river.
With a private cruise, you decide how rowdy you want to get on the river. Lots of party music, cocktails, and dancing? Or champagne and an elegant tour of the river. The choice is yours.
3) Party Barge On Wheels
Take your hen party on a boat with wheels! It’s one of the many great opportunities for Nashville Instagram selfies.
If you like the idea of a river cruise, but don’t want to get on the water, then the land barge might be the activity for you. The barge takes tours into the heart of Nashville, along Lower Broadway and honky tonk alley.
Join one of the scheduled public tours that depart 3 -4 times a day, or book a private barge tour of your own.
4) Nashville Party On Wheels
We’ve talked about Nashville bachelorette party ideas by boat and party barge. Now let’s talk about taking a Nashville party bus.
Nashville takes the party bus to an entirely different level. If it has wheels and can navigate past the neon lights, then Nashville uses it for a tour!
Some of the fun options for city tours:
Luxury bus tour
A not-so-luxury bus
The Nashville tractor tour
Music city fire engine
Jacked up monster truck
Military party truck
Open-air golf cart
5) Tennessee Wine Tasting
You probably know that Tennessee has a famous whiskey distillery located 1.5 hours from Nashville. But did you know that Tennessee is making some fine wines now, too?
You could stop by one of the tasting rooms in the downtown area, but for one of the best Nashville bachelorette party ideas, head out to the winery.
Two nearby wineries to try:
Arrington Vineyards – 40 minutes from downtown Nashville. See the vineyard and taste the wine at one of the five tasting rooms. Open daily.
Belle Meade Historic Site and Winery – 20 minutes from downtown Nashville. They offer wine tastings and tours of the historic property. There is a restaurant with sit-down meals or charcuterie plates to take outside on the lawn. Open daily.
7) Line Dancing Lessons
Before your bachelorette party heads out for the night in your Daisy Duke’s and best boots, why not take a line dance lesson?
Wildhorse Saloon – offers free public lessons daily. Check the website for times.
Stompin’ Grounds Nashville – offers public classes at Whiskey Bent Saloon, starting at $40 per person. Book in advance online.
Urban Cowboy – schedule a one-hour private group lesson. Rates start at $500 for nine guests up to $650 for 30 guests
