“Keep Austin Weird,” might be the slogan for this West Texas city, but it gets the double thumbs up from the BASHelorette team in regards to one of the best bachelorette party destinations in the United States. With its eclectic mix of one-of-a-kind bars, pubs and restaurants, there is no shortage of fun eateries and watering holes. Beyond that however, we discovered some Austin bachelorette party gems that you cannot find ANYWHERE else, which is one of the main reasons we highly recommend Austin as a go-to spot for bachelorette parties.
Kick off the day or evening with a a “Teatail party” courtesy of The Marvelous Vintage Tea Party Company. Trust us, there is NOTHING like it anywhere else. Period. It’s a totally unforgettable experience! Set up can be just about anywhere (including at your hotel), so it’s easy to transform a hotel room, lawn or home into a gorgeous vintage display featuring a bespoke spread of fine China, stunning vintage glassware, linens, music…you get the idea. It’s basically one of the most memorable and unique ways to bond with your closest gal pals, over tea in an atmosphere fit for a queen! A variety of full tea party packages are available, so there is something for everyone.
Then head to the one-of-a-kind Coco Coquette, for one of the famous “wig parties.” Try The Gwendolyn package, a 3-hour party that includes a lovely wig for each lady in your party, makeup, photo booth photos and more. Coco Coquette has THE best wigs we have ever seen, and will get you in a fun-loving mood that will set the tone for a wonderful evening ahead.
When it’s time for your party to let down their hair, head to Pete’s Dueling Piano Bar. This isn’t just your average dueling piano bar either. Pete’s is known for showing their bachelorette parties one heck of a good time, and the level of performer talent is impressive. The price is really reasonable, making this a must-do if you are heading to an Austin bachelorette party. Try the Bachelorette’s Final Blowout Party Package: Skip the line, pay no cover, guaranteed reservation for four people. Includes one free drink per person, and is only $80 for a group of four.
And what would a bachelorette party be without a bar crawl? Especially one that is basically a bar on wheels for up to fourteen people? The REALLY fun part, involves everyone pedaling the Pubcrawler of Austin to the destination(s). There are custom tours available, or the bach party can pick one of the many tours offered in various districts of the city. This a great option for larger bachelorette parties who want a little adventure, humor and fun.
