#1 – Broadway Bachelorette Bar Hopping
Broadway is a famous street in downtown Nashville filled with live music, dining, and shopping. Lower Broadway, also known as Honky Tonk Highway, is where you’ll find most iconic bars and entertainment.
You’ll find live music every day of the week from 10 AM to 3 AM, and there is never a cover charge. Here are a few of the bachelorette-friendly bars for your group to explore.
If you’re interested in visiting the oldest and most famous honky tonk bar in Nashville, you’ll want to head over to Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge. Many country music legends such as Patsy Cline and Willie Nelson have performed here. There are multiple levels, each with a live band and a rooftop bar. Be sure to get a group picture outside of this historic purple bar!
Honky Tonk Central is a large three-story corner bar that offers live music, good food, and a great time. This bar features a different live band on all three levels and has balconies around the second and third floors. Consider renting a private room or private balcony for your group and enjoy VIP status!
The Wild Horse Saloon is another excellent option to add to your Nashville bachelorette party activities. This three-story establishment offers mouthwatering southern food, excellent service, and a fantastic outing. The best part? They have dance instructors that will teach you how to line dance!
#2 – Cowgirl Boot Shopping
Your bachelorette party plan must include a stop at a boot store! Nashville has numerous boot shops, many on Broadway, such as Boot Country, Betty Boots, and Tecovas. Take advantage of sales and grab a great deal, like a “buy two, get one free” offer. Treat the bride-to-be to a complimentary pair of cowgirl boots before your next night out with the girls!
#3 – Nashville Murals and Mimosas Tour
A mural and mimosa tour is an excellent Nashville bachelorette party activity! Your bride-to-be will love the endless mimosas, lively music, dancing, and countless photo opportunities at the Instagram-worthy murals. This tour of Nashville is guaranteed to be a blast!
If mimosas aren’t your cup of tea, don’t fret! You’re welcome to bring your own beverage (BYOB) if you’re of legal drinking age. Remember to leave the glass bottles behind, as they’re not allowed on these tours. Consider the Nashville Party Barge or Mint Julep Tours for a fun and entertaining mid-morning tour of Nashville.
#4 – Nashville Tractor Tour
For an extra thrill, consider a Nashville Tractor tour. The Nashville Tractor provides non-stop scenic views of Music City as you party, without interruptions from hop-on/hop-off stops. This tour is one continuous bachelorette bash! It’s important to note that the tour bus does not serve alcohol, but you’re welcome to bring your own (BYOB). The tour provides ice and coolers, or you can bring a small cooler of your own.
#5 – Nashville Liquor Lab
The Nashville Liquor Lab is a hit with bachelorette groups and a must-try activity. Join cocktail classes taught by some of the best in the business and become a mixologist for the night! Classes offered include Margarita and Taco Night and Bourbon and BBQ Night. And, if you prefer a more intimate experience, you can reserve a private class for your group. No need to worry about sharing with strangers!
#6 – Nashville Drag Brunch
Brunch is a must-have after a night on Broadway, but why not add some entertainment to your meal? Suzy Wong’s Drag’n Brunch offers Asian-fusion cuisine along with Friday, Saturday, and Sunday performances.
For similar entertainment, check out Diva Royale Nashville, which specializes in celebrity and female impersonations. And, if you prefer skipping brunch, book your seats on The Big Drag Bus for an unforgettable experience.
#7 – The Bach Bar
The Bach Bar is a first-of-its-kind mobile bartending experience tailored to fit any special occasion. Need professional bartenders for a bachelorette party at your Airbnb? You’ve come to the right place. Looking for a unique way to celebrate the birthday girl? Look no further.

#8 – An Afternoon at a Winery
Spend a relaxing afternoon at a winery as part of your Nashville bachelorette party! With several options available in Nashville, you’re sure to find one that fits your preferences.
For a true vineyard experience, head to Arrington Vineyards and Winery, located just 25 minutes outside of Nashville. If you prefer staying closer to the city, consider City Winery, Grinder’s Switch Winery, Amber Falls Winery, or the Winery at Belle Meade Plantation.
#9 – Cumberland River Party Cruise
Take advantage of the nice weather and plan a Cumberland River party cruise for your Nashville bachelorette party! The Pontoon Saloon provides a server and DJ for a fully entertaining experience.
For a more lively option, Nashville Toons offers a free shuttle, waterslides, and inflatables. And, if you want to take in the scenic views of Music City, consider River Queen Voyages and their pedal pontoon party boat.
#10 – Nashville Male Entertainment
Looking for male entertainment for your Nashville bachelorette party? While many options exist, most require you to have your own event venue. If you’re visiting from out of town and staying in a hotel room that is too small, there are still great options available.
If you’re looking to add some excitement to your Nashville bachelorette party, consider attending a performance by Music City Gents. They offer both private and public shows and are a popular choice among bridal parties. As a pro tip, it’s best to book your tickets in advance if you’re planning to attend a public performance, as they tend to sell out quickly.
Another option with its own stage is the Hunk-O-Mania Male Strip Club. Shows are only from Thursday through Sunday, so reserve your tickets. This male strip show offers stage performances, acrobatics, comedy, and more!
#11 – A Live Performance or Concert
Live performances and concerts are abundant in Music City, making them perfect additions to your Nashville bachelorette party. For a unique Nashville country music experience, check out the Grand Ole Opry or Ryman Auditorium, both renowned and historic concert venues with regularly scheduled shows. Alternatively, if you want a more traditional country music concert, consider visiting the Bridgestone Arena or Nissan Stadium.
#12 – Group Line Dancing Lessons
Looking to impress on the dance floor? Join a group line dancing class with your Nashville bachelorette party! Urban Cowboy Line Dancing is a popular choice, offering beginner-friendly group lessons. If you prefer to bring your own drinks, check out Turn Their Heads Line Dancing. And, for a lively and energetic experience, head to Stompin’ Grounds, a venue known for hosting a Nash Bash!
#13 – Cocktail CowBoys
The Cocktail CowBoys are a must-have for any bachelorette, birthday, or girls’ weekend in Nashville. The CowBoys are party hosts, butlers, and fun bartenders that will make and serve drinks, take and pose in pictures, pamper the bride and bridesmaids, be Spotify DJs, help with party games, and overall just make a pregame, and game night, brunch, or house or pool party way more fun.
They are southern gentlemen who know how to throw a great party, and are sure to make the day the highlight of the weekend. Who doesn’t love a cowboy bartender?? Yeehaw!
