If you're heading to the Windy City for your bachelorette party, check out our favorite spots to make an extra memorable weekend with your girls!

Where to Stay
The Godfrey is an industrial chic boutique hotel that's centrally located within the city. Rooms are contemporary and spacious but the hotel's main attraction is definitely the rooftop lounge, IO.

Insider tip: Chef cocktails come by the pitcher at IO, making it easy to order for large groups. We loved the pineapple smash!

Where to Dine
Owned by one of our favorite celebrity couples, Giuliana and Bill Rancic (who are frequently spotted there), RPM Italian offers a delicious menu in a sleek and glamorous space. The trendy scene and upbeat music make this restaurant a great place to start the night since it is located within walking distance from some of the cities best nightclubs and bars.

Inside tip: The food here is great for sharing — our staff loved the shredded brussels sprouts salad, homemade ricotta with toast and the potato gnocchi with pesto.

Where to Dance
The Underground is hands-down the hottest nightclub in Chicago. The DJ's are amazing, the crowd is upscale and the service is top notch. We recommend making a reservation for bottle service; prices are reasonable when split between a group and its nice to have a place for everyone to congregate throughout the night.

Inside tip: The club doesn't get crowded until midnight, so be sure to hit Rockit Bar & Grill beforehand since it's another one of our favorite spots. This two-story, newly renovated space has a fun and upbeat vibe, it's a great place to go for a drink or stay for the night!

Where to Brunch
Whether you are looking for delicious food or amazing craft cocktails, Bottlefork has you covered. Chef Kevin Hickey (formerly of the Four Seasons) brings new meaning to the term "brunch" with an outstanding menu that features a variety of exciting sweet and savory options.

Insider tip: Everything our staff tried was amazing (seriously) but if we had to choose, our favorites would be the "bag" of crisps and eggs, wood grilled bacon burger, breakfast sope, and their renowned cast iron French toast.

Where to Spa
The Spa at Trump offers a variety of luxurious treatments, a spacious relaxation room, and one of the largest indoor pools in the city. The hotel has a two-Michelin starred restaurant called Sixteen where you can enjoy a fancy dinner after a day of pampering and a fabulous cocktail bar if you're in the mood for drinks.

Insider tip: We recommend the "Ultimate Kate" facial, one of the spa's signature treatments, inspired by celebrity skin specialist, Kate Somerville.
