Nashville has become the hot spot for bachelorette parties. Being a local I’m honestly surprised at how many visit each weekend! So a few months ago when one of my long time out of town friends got engaged she mentioned coming to Nashville for her bachelorette party! So while I feel like I know a lot about Nashville I was clueless on the bachelorette scene! I’ve also been married for 13 years and it’s been a while since I had even been to a bachelorette party. My friends future sister-in-laws did a great job helping plan all the details but here is what we learned! 

We stayed at an AirBNB that was a great location and perfect set up! For a large group of girls an airbnb is a great option! 

If you are wanting a hotel here are a few options! 

The Graduate 

 What’s not to love about a pink hotel with Dolly when you walk in. It also features a rooftop pool and bar with classic pink umbrellas! 

Virgin Hote

Nashville’s newest hotel located on Music Row featuring all the music decor with a roof top pool and bar. 

The Thompson Hotel

Located in the heart of the Gulch with classy decor. It also features a roof top bar with some great cocktails!

The Bobby Hotel

Located near Printer’s Ally and walking distance to downtown, this fun hotel has such a unique and memorable decor. The Bobby also includes a rooftop bar with a retro cruiser not to be missed! 

Other Downtown Hotels

The Omni

JW Marriott

The Hilton

The Westin 

Where to Eat?

The best thing we did was on our first night we had Dammi Vino come and teach a pasta making class. Most of the girls had spent the day traveling so it was so nice to have a relaxing night in just to unwind and do something fun! Keep in mind most of us are mid 30’s so we need a minute, unlike the 20 something bachelorette parties. She will bring wine, an amazing cheese and charcuterie board, and everything to make an amazing pasta dinner. So if you are staying in an Airbnb this is a fun option for a low key night!

The Hampton Social

This place has bachelorette all over it from the flower wall to the all day froze. Hampton Social is located downtown overlooking the river and stadium and is a great option for brunch or dinner. 

The Optimist 

This is one of my new favorite restaurants in town. If you are looking for seafood this is one not be missed. With amazing cocktails and flavorful seafood dishes it’s like being near the ocean. 

The Chef and I 

If you are foodies and looking to be inspired, head over to the Chef and I. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Nashville and not to be missed! Everything is amazing!

Urban Grub 

One of my other favorite brunch spots is Urban Grub. You can enjoy baked fresh pastries with some of the best breakfast entrees. And of course enjoyed with an amazing cocktail. 

Restoration Hardware Cafe

I feel like this place was made for Instagram. The most amazing decor and picturesque food, it’s the perfect place for a group of girls to enjoy! 

These of course are just a few suggestions you can check out my favorite restaurants in Nashville here. 

What to do?

If you are wanting to see all you can in a short amount of time in Nashville, this would be my recommendation. 

Day 1- Check in and enjoy a low key night after traveling or head out to one of the restaurants above. If I were going out I would go to the Graduate for a pool side dinner and maybe visit Critters after for some fun entertainment. 

Day 2- Head over to Restoration Cafe for brunch and take some time to explore the showroom. You can also walk around Green Hills Mall with Nordstrom, Gucci, Louis Vuitton,  Golden Goose Shoes, and many more great shops!

If you still want to shop visit Vici Dolls in Nashville and SVM Boutique downtown. 

Head out to dinner at The Hampton Social and then walk over to Broadway to take in Music City! 

Day 3- Make plans to go to Urban Grub for brunch in 12 South. After brunch you can easily walk off all the food seeing the shops along the street. This is a great tourist spot because of the “Nashville” wall mural and Draper James. You can also stop by the Frothy Monkey for a little coffee pick me up! 

If you are wanting to see the outskirts of Nashville, head out to Arrington Vineyards for an evening with wine and seeing the country side. Depending on time you could also visit downtown Franklin which is a favorite to see and shop! 

Of course Nashville also offers plenty of other bachelorette options like Pedal Taverns, Party Buses, and Party Wagons but remember I’m old and would rather be at the spa

Hope this helps give a little direction for some fun options around Nashville! We are all about southern hospitality so just ask!
