Over the past few years, Nashville has become one of the most popular destinations to take a bachelorette trip. Two years ago, before I had moved to Nashville, my best friend decided to have her bachelorette trip here, and let me tell you, it was the most fun I have ever had! Nashville is known as NashVegas because it is called the Vegas of the South. So it is the perfect nickname to go along with all the fun activities to do here. Nashville is jam-packed with places to go from party buses, fun directive hotels with rooftops and Broadway bars. Here are a few of my favorite places and activities to do when I was attending a bachelorette party here!
Where to stay
There are so many places to stay in Nashville that it can be overwhelming, especially when you have never been to the city and are unfamiliar with the different neighborhoods. You want to be in a safe, walkable area, whether you are staying in a hotel or an Airbnb. Staying near downtown Nashville would be the best option, so you are close to all the fun! I suggest staying in the heart of actual downtown Nashville, or a close by neighborhood like the Gulch, 12 South or Midtown. If you have a larger party size, Airbnb is the way to go! It allows you to have tons of room for your guests. If your party is on the smaller side and you want to be all together, I suggest a fun hotel. Two of my favorite hotels in Nashville are The Graduate Hotel and The Virgin Hotel; both perfect for a bachelorette trip!
Where to bar hop
When you think of Nashville, most likely your next thought is Broadway and live music. Of course, one of the main attractions in Nashville is Broadway itself. With so many bars to bar-hop from, and live music filling the air, you are bound to have a great time with your gals! Some of my favorite bars on Broadway are The Stage, Florida Georgia Line ( Luke Bryan’s bar), and The Valentine, just to name a few. But, if Broadway isn’t your scene, do not worry! Midtown is a great alternative and is a little more laid back than the hustle and bustle of Broadway. One of my favorite Nashville bars is Loser’s Bar, located in Midtown. Every Friday night, Loser’s has their famous “Loser’s Band” that plays, which you do not want to miss! In the summer, they even have Whiskey Jam, a free live outdoor concert with an amazing lineup.
Where to eat
Nashville has a ton of places to eat, with different types of cuisine and for all meal types, whether it be breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. The must-haves that you will want to add to your list are The Hampton Social, The Listening Room, Liberty Common, Butchertown Hall and Bartaco. The Hampton Social and Liberty Common are near each other and just a few blocks from Broadway. Both overlook the river and have the best bachelorette and girly vibe you could want! The Listening Room is a live songwriter cafe where you can eat great food and listen to upcoming artists. Just make sure to buy your ticket beforehand on their website. Finally, if you are looking for good tacos and southwestern food, Butchertown Hall and Bartaco are your go-to places!
What to do during the day
There are so many things to choose from besides just going to a bar! The Nashville Tractor is one of my all-time favorite things to do; you get a tour of Nashville in a fun, unique way while having great music blaring! If you want to get away from the city life for the day, Arrington Vineyards is a great place to have a laid-back, fun day with your girls, and their wine is excellent. Go take those commemorative photos in front of the famous Nashville murals, 12 South or The Gulch - great areas to walk around and get quality tourist photos. Last but not least, the Dry Bar is the place to get pampered while getting the most amazing blowout.
