For NYC ladies planning a bachelorette for your best girl, ask yourself the question, "Where Brooklyn at?" (Sorry, we had to.) While Manhattan has tons of options where you can party til the wee hours of the morning, we can guarantee you won't be disappointed if you and your bridal crew venture out to any of these Brooklyn hotspots for a bachelorette bash.

In true Brooklyn fashion, this urban, trendy winery is nestled in the center of Williamsburg and embraces the local culture. Educational tours are available — guests can learn about the creation process of the wines and then experience it for themselves. Cozy up to the beautifully rustic, 1,200-square-foot wine bar designed from reclaimed wood and historic materials light with vintage lighting while sipping some Pinot Noir or Chardonnay. With a tantalizing food menu that's easy for pairing with (lots of) wine, Brooklyn Winery is a picture-perfect venue for a wine-loving bachelorette posse. Read real brides' reviews here!
What's better than cocktails and manicures? Pretty much nothing. Beauty Bar, which opened in March 2012 in Park Slope, is a one-of-a-kind venue that pairs beauty with beers within its unique, salon-themed vintage setting. Aside from their $10 special that includes a martini and a manicure, their drink menu also features craft cocktails with fun, beauty-related names. With locations throughout the country, and in Manhattan as well, Beauty Bar is a glittery, girly pub — ideal for your big night on the town.
The Clover Club
If you're looking for delectable bites, cocktails and a relaxing, low-key vibe for your bachelorette, The Clover Club is essential. Established in 2008, this Cobble Hill locale serves up craft libations with classy and elegant vibes. Gather 'round with your girls and lounge on their tufted leather benches, surrounded by exposed brick within the dimly (but gorgeously) lit space. Often featuring live jazz, "The Parlor" room is also available for gatherings of up to 45 people.
The Royal Palms
Shuffleboard, anyone? While shuffleboard may not be synonymous with "bachelorette" — it is a guaranteed good time, especially for the bridal party that is super competitive. This Brooklyn hotspot allows you to reserve courts for a variety of bar packages and includes a cabana for some R&R between play. With special events including DJs and food trucks, the Royal Palms is a captivating bachelorette spot combining drinks, fun, and some friendly competition.
The Artful Bachelorette
Drinking, drawing, and dudes? Nope — not a strip club. The Artful Bachelorette is a unique way to incorporate a bit of art (and eye candy) into your bachelorette shenanigans. With packages that include all materials, instruction, champagne and finger foods, this is a fantastic option for the out-of-the-box bride and crew. Read real brides' reviews here!
