WHERE TO EAT/DRINK

Brunch

No matter if it’s the first thing on the list or the recovery activity for the next morning, all great bachelorette parties include brunch. We highly recommend LouVino for bottomless mimosas and sharable brunch tapas. If you’re looking for farm-to-table treats and a housemade smoky, spicy Bloody Mary, head to Harvest. For an especially lively morning, check out Le Moo for a drag show and brunch buffet. Be sure to get your tickets for the drag brunch in advance, though. They tend to book up quickly. Lastly, for great food with a colorful atmosphere, check out Noosh Nosh.

Dinner & Drinks

For some of the best dinner spots in the city where you can get a little bit fancy, we recommend Proof on Main, Mussel & Burger Bar, Grassa Gramma and River House. For more a bit more of a party atmosphere, we suggest checking out Mojito in Havana, Zanzabar, Noche Mexican BBQ, The Blind Squirrel, Garage BarThe Limbo and The Eagle. For drinks and appetizers with a particularly girls-night-out vibe, you can’t go wrong with The Champagnery and Nouvelle Bar & Bottle.

Rooftop Bars

Come spring, if it’s drinks with a view you’re after, Louisville has several rooftop bars that are perfect for the occasion. Grab drinks and an appetizer at 8UP Elevated Kitchen & Drinkery, conveniently located downtown, or hang at Copper & Kings’ ALEX&DER rooftop bar. If you’re staying at The Omni or want to grab a spa treatment, you and the gang can enjoy their rooftop pool and bar. For more of a relaxed hangout spot, head to HopCat’s rooftop bar — and be sure to try their “Crack Fries!”

Getting Around

Most bachelorette parties don’t come equipped with a designated driver, so it’s a better idea to think ahead about transportation. Other than Uber or Lyft, there are a few ways to get around the city. Rent a limo from R&R Limousine Service or veteran-owned 2 Vets and a Limo to ride in style. Want something a little more wild? Hop on a bus from Party Bus Louisville or Xtreme Transportation for a ride you won’t forget (or perhaps even remember …).

WHERE TO STAY

There are plenty of great hotels and Airbnbs in Louisville, but if you’re looking to up the luxe factor for your big shindig, consider The Omni, The Galt House or The Seelbach. For a more playful, personality-packed option, check out 21C Museum Hotel, Aloft or Inn at Saint James Court. If you’re looking to stay in NULU — a great area for lots of bachelorette activities — we recommend the AC Hotel or Bed & Bike.
