#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 of the 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.
Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge
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
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 wrapped around the second and third floors. Consider renting a private room or private balcony for your group and enjoy VIP status!
Wild Horse Saloon
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 – Boot Shopping
Your bachelorette party itinerary isn’t complete without a visit to the boot store! Boot shops are sprinkled throughout Nashville, with several being right on Broadway—Boot Country, Betty Boots, and Tecovas, to name a few.
Look for sales as many stores offer a buy two get one free option. Treat the bride-to-be to a free pair of cowgirl boots before your next girl’s night out! This activity should definitely be on your Nashville bachelorette itinerary.
#3 – Nashville Murals and Mimosas Tour
A mural and mimosa tour is an excellent option, whether you’re an early riser or excited to start the day. Your bride-to-be will have a great time with endless mimosas, loud music, dancing, and countless Instagram-able mural pictures. You’ll have a blast on this Nashville tour!
And, if mimosas aren’t you’re thing, not to worry! You can BYOB along if you’re 21, of course. Be sure to leave the champagne behind though, you cannot bring any glass bottles on these tours. Check out the Nashville Party Barge or Mint Julep Tours; both offer this entertaining mid-morning tour of Nashville.
#4 – Nashville Tractor Tour
If you’re looking for a tour with a little more excitement, go on a Nashville tractor tour. The Nashville Tractor is a non-stop tour giving you scenic views while you party around Music City. No hop on/hop off distractions, just one continuous Nashville bachelorette party!
Please note that this tour bus does not sell alcohol but will allow you to BYOB. They will supply ice and coolers for you, or you can bring a small cooler as well.
#5 – Nashville Liquor Lab
The Nashville Liquor Lab is a popular group activity that your hen party will love. Take cocktail classes with some of the industry’s best and become a mixologist for the night! Some of their classes include Margarita and Taco night and Bourbon and BBQ night.
Don’t feel like sharing the class with strangers? Not to worry! You can make a reservation for a private evening as well.
#6 – Nashville Drag Brunch
Brunch is an essential meal after a night out on Broadway, but it can be even better with a bit of entertainment! Suzy Wong’s Drag‘n Brunch serves an Asian-fusion cuisine and has performances on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Diva Royale Nashville runs on the same schedule and specializes in celebrity and female impersonations. And, if you don’t mind leaving out the brunch part, reserve your seats on The Big Drag Bus!
#7 – An Afternoon at a Winery
An afternoon at a winery is a great addition to your Nashville bachelorette party! And, you’ll be glad to know that Nashville has quite a few winery options for you to choose from.
If you want the full vineyard experience, you’ll want to go to Arrington Vineyards and Winery. It’s not exactly in Nashville, but it’s only 25 minutes away.
However, if you prefer to stay closer to town, your options are City Winery, Grinder’s Switch Winery, Amber Falls Winery, and the Winery at Belle Meade Plantation.
#8 – Cumberland River Party Cruise
If the weather is nice, take the ladies out for a Cumberland river party cruise! The Pontoon Saloon offers bachelorette parties complete with a server and a DJ!
Nashville Toons has a free shuttle, waterslides, and inflatables. While, River Queen Voyages has a pedal pontoon party boat offering you some of the best views of Music City.
#9 – Nashville Male Dancers
Did someone say male dancers? Nashville has quite a few options for male entertainment but for most you’ll need to have your own venue. And, if you’re traveling from out of town, you’ll likely be staying in a hotel room that is far too small. So where can you go?
Music City Gents is a very popular Nashville bachelorette party activity. They offer private and public shows for you to enjoy. Pro Tip: If you’re looking to attend a public performance, you’ll want to book your tickets as soon as possible because they sell out fast!
Another option with its own stage is the Hunk-O-Mania Male Strip Club. Shows are only Thursday through Sunday, so be sure to reserve your tickets. This male strip show offers stage performances, acrobatics, comedy and more!
#10 – A Live Performance or Concert
Music City is filled with venues offering live performances and concerts to add to your Nashville bachelorette itinerary.
If you’re looking for a Nashville style country music concert, check the schedule for the Grand Ole Opry and the Ryman Auditorium. These historic concert halls have regularly scheduled shows.
But, if you’re looking for a traditional country music concert, you’ll want to check the schedule for the Bridgestone Arena or the Nissan Stadium.
#11 – Group Line Dancing Lessons
Want to learn a few moves before heading out to the dance floor? Then grab the girls, and your new boots, and try out a group line dancing class!
Urban Cowboy Line Dancing is a popular, and highly recommended, option offering group lessons for beginners. While Turn Their Heads Line Dancing encourages you to loosen up and allows you to BYOB. And finally, Stompin’ Grounds is no stranger to hosting a Nash Bash!
