New York City is one of the most vibrant and exciting places to have a bachelorette party. With some of the best dining, nightlife and entertainment options at your fingertips, you'll be sure to have a memorable weekend!
Where to Party
The Jane Ballroom has two bar areas and an awesome dance floor for those who want to party the night away dancing on couches and singing along to hit songs spun by some of the city's best DJ's. The atmosphere is lively, similar to a nightclub, but the high ceilings and amazing décor give it a much classier feel.
Insider tip: The line to get in gets insanely long late at night; your best bet is to book a table or show up early around 9 or 10 p.m.
Where to Stay
The James Hotel offers modern accommodations right in the heart of Soho. They have an awesome rooftop pool (a rarity in Manhattan) and its downtown location makes hip bars and restaurants super accessible.
Insider tip: Check out the hotels bar, JIMMY, and take in the amazing views while sipping a watermelon tequila swizzle!
Where to Dine
La Esquina is a favorite amongst BRIDES editors for a fun night out on the town! This ultra trendy restaurant has ambient lighting, great music and an upbeat bar area — if you're lucky you'll spot a celebrity. Staff favorites include the elotes callejeros (grilled Mexican street corn) and tinga de pollo tostadas.
Insider tip: This restaurant books up quickly, so be sure to set a calendar reminder to make reservations as soon as the window opens (21 days to the date if your party is less than 9 people, 30 days if its more).
Where to Relax
Bliss Spa Soho is the perfect place to get mani's with the girls while recovering from a wild night out. The atmosphere is modern and girly and it's in a great location if you want to go shopping after.
Insider tip: Prices are a bit steeper than your typical walk-in NYC nail joint, but it's worth it to splurge on a place that you know is reputable and super sanitary.
Where to Try Something New
Queen of the Night is hands down one of the best things to do in NYC. We don't want to give too much away, but we will say that it is not your typical "dinner theater" experience — the food, performers, and venue are absolutely out of this world.
Insider tip: Arrive on time, keep an open mind, and don't ruin the surprise by reading reviews ahead of time! Go for premium tickets if you want the entire group to sit together, although we recommend getting standard tickets and splitting up into groups of two or three throughout the general seating area.
