We’ve all heard the phrase “every bride dreams of their wedding day,” but part in parcel with heading to the altar is the bachelorette party. Nashville has become a favorite destination among brides and bridal parties for one last all-out vacation of fun, and for good reason!

With the city’s bustling nightlife, hip restaurant scene, never-ending supply of activities, and so many new places to stay, eat, and drink, Nashville is the perfect destination for your bachelorette party. Learn why, ideas for celebrating, and even a potential itinerary for your big weekend in this Nashville Bachelorette Party Guide.

Why is Nashville so Popular for Bachelorette Parties?

Nashville has become a prime destination for bachelorette parties. You’ll often find groups of women in matching #bride tees or sashes headed down Broadway – Nashville’s most iconic street – throughout the year. Any way you look at it, Nashville provides an easy and exciting option for bachelorette parties:

  • Plenty of live music and Nashville’s own signature honky-tonks
  • Fantastic food and local drinks
  • There are many one-of-a-kind experiences, like visiting a whiskey distillery or getting craft cocktails
  • Visitors can enjoy fantastic shopping at local boutiques
  • There are amazing museums including the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Frist Art Museum, the Johnny Cash Museum, and more

In addition to all of the enticing reasons above, unlike many other top cities in the country, Nashville is affordable with plenty of budget-conscious but still luxe places to stay, dine, and go out.

Where to Stay?

Finding a place to stay for a bachelorette party can be tricky. Hotel rooms don’t give you the sense of group camaraderie you need, unless you manage to find a very expensive suite which can be out of reach for some. AirBnb is another way to go, but listings can be unreliable, and you never quite know what you will walk into.

Best Nashville Stay Options for Your Bachelorette Party

Bode is a perfect option for bachelorette parties. Designed specifically for group travel, Bode offers single, 2, 3, and 4-room units where all visitors from the bachelorette party can sleep comfortably. Better yet, with private rooms and shared spaces for your group, you can pre-game in your own chef-style kitchen, cook hangover breakfast the morning after (Bode even offers to pre-stock the fridge for you), and have enough space to spread out, lounge around, and just hang out with your crew.

Where to Eat?

Nashville has become a popular foodie destination, and not just for the Tennessee-locals. You may have heard of Nashville hot chicken, which has built a global reputation for being oh-so-tasty with a spicy kick. The city itself has garnered attention from world-class chefs like Philip Krajek, Sean Brock, and Jonathan Waxman, who have opened up popular destinations for the food-enthusiasts.

Whether you’re looking for a low-key casual restaurant or more fine dining, there are so many options for where to eat for your bachelorette party. Here are a few of our favorites:

Our Favorites



Folk is the newest venture of Philip Krajek who is a renowned chef around town with several other restaurants. His take on New Americana is truly special, and paired with the local art and airy atmosphere it makes for a real Nashville culinary experience.

Order: Sourdough appetizer, kale and pesto pizza

Food in a plate


Brunch is available in a tasty buffet style, but their dinner is the absolute best

Activities to do

Aside from the delicious food, Nashville is jam-packed with things to do during the day and throughout the night. Whether you’d rather go for a long walk in the park or hit up all the best bars, read on for some suggestions on how to spend your time in Nashville.

Best Daytime Activities

  • Museums! The Country Music Hall of Fame, the Johnny Cash Museum, the Frist, The Parthenon – there are so many options depending on your interests. Whether it’s art, history, music, or all of the above, Nashville has a museum for you.
  • Shopping! Nashville has a great shopping scene, from national favorites in walkable districts and malls, to a homegrown slow fashion scene with the likes of Nisolo Shoes and Imogene and Willie jeans, there’s something for everyone.
  • Food! Take a food tour of Nashville. From hot chicken to artisanal eats, you can make a day out of a food crawl (or bar crawl – whatever you prefer!).

Best Nightime Activities

  • Bar hop along Broadway. Home to all of the iconic honky tonks and live music every night of the week, Broadway is like Nashville’s own version of the Vegas strip. Come to party and stay for the fantastic music.
  • Fantastic food and drink. Make it a one stop night at our favorites Bastion (half cocktail bar, half restaurant, great vinyl music always), Black Rabbit, or Mother’s Ruin, or get a world-class dinner at Lou or Folk and head over to Patterson House for an upscale cocktail.
  • Get a one-of-a-kind Nashville drink. Head over to Attaboy where there’s no menu, the bartenders just ask you for your favorite spirit and they’ll make you something special. It’s high end, delicious, and couldn’t be made anywhere but here.

How to Get Around

Nashville is a fairly easy city to get around in, and a lot of activity is central to the downtown area. That said, there are a few key ways you can look to traversing Music City.

Rent a Car

if you’re looking to head out on excursions outside of the city, renting a car may be your best bet. While parking can be a pain in the downtown area, Nashville is an easy city to drive in, and you’ll find that most of the places you’ll want to go are within a half hour.


Uber or Lyft are great options for short-term visitors to Nashville. There are plenty of drivers on at all hours, and the rates tend to be more affordable than larger cities like New York or Los Angeles. Best yet, you can hop in an Uber or Lyft from the airport, so you can avoid needing to rent a car altogether or coordinate a car for your arrival.


your easiest and no-hassle option is to walk. If you find accommodations that are central to downtown, most of the action is going to be right outside your door. Don’t worry about waiting in long rental car lines or added fees, avoid the rideshare waits and surge fees, and simply put on a comfy pair of shoes and walk the city.
