The Last Hurrah: Where to Host an Unforgettable NYC Bachelorette Party
Bachelorette parties don’t have to be a stereotype.
No wedding is complete without a bachelorette party. And while many opt for the tried-and-true bar crawl or spa day, there are countless ways to celebrate your upcoming nuptials — all that matters is that the party reflects your unique personality!
Looking to throw your bash in New York City? These venues provide the perfect setting for an unforgettable celebration of the bride-to-be. Whether you’re looking for a classic blowout or something a bit more unconventional, you’ll find it here.
1. Gospel Brunch at Red Rooster
Not all bachelorette parties happen after hours. For a daytime celebration, or just to kick off twenty-four hours of fun, bring your crew to the Sunday gospel brunch at Ginny’s Supper Club (located on the lower level of Harlem’s Red Rooster restaurant). You and your friends will savor soul food, sip brunch cocktails, and be serenaded with gospel music from a local choir. Whether it’s the main event or a pitstop during a full day (and night) of festivities, Ginny’s is the perfect spot.
Red Rooster is located at 310 Lenox Avenue.
2. High Tea at the Williamsburg Hotel
If you’re looking for a break from all those pink cocktails, high tea at the Williamsburg Hotel may be the next destination for you and your squad. This trendy venue puts on an elaborate afternoon tea service right out of Pride and Prejudice. Choose from classic fare such as Earl Grey or more surprising blends, like a Korean pineapple green tea. Pair your tea with a tasty treat: gourmet sandwiches, scones, doughnuts, sugared brioche, and bread pudding are all on the menu.
The Williamsburg Hotel is located at 96 Wythe Avenue, Brooklyn.
3. Karaoke at Gagopa Karaoke
If you’re looking to sing your hearts out, nabbing a private karaoke room in NYC’s Koreatown shouldn’t pose too much of a challenge — but there aren’t many karaoke bars that offer a selection of over 30,000 songs to guests. With a database this large, Gagopa will have your bridesmaids belting all the latest hits (and singalong-worthy classics) late into the night. If your party is on the larger side, don’t worry: you can reserve a room for as many as 30 people. Best of all, the bar’s BYOB policy makes it the perfect destination for a budget-friendly outing.
Gagopa is located at 28 West 32rd Street.
4. Pole Dancing at Body & Pole
Pole dancing is an empowering fitness adventure for everyone, and it can be a seriously fun way to bond with your closest friends while learning some new moves. Body & Pole offers a variety of packages for bachelorette parties, from classic pole lessons to aerial hoops and silks — perfect for those more interested in mastering moves found at a high-flying circus.
Body & Pole is located at 115 West 27th Street.
5. Sweet Sips at Sugar Factory
If your bride-to-be has a serious sweet tooth, Sugar Factory is sure to satisfy. You’ll find sweet treats, savory food, and best of all: colorful drinks garnished with candy and served in glasses the size of fish bowls. Sugar Factory also has a bachelorette party package, which includes a three-course meal, prosecco, themed accessories, a pound of candy, and those aforementioned alcohol-filled goblets.
Sugar Factory is located at 835 Washington Street.
6. Burlesque Sail
For a more exotic outing, climb aboard the Clipper City for the Burlesque Sail, a seafaring celebration organized by Manhattan By Sail and Dances of Vice. Once you’ve cast off, the Civil War-era schooner will take you around New York Harbor while burlesque dancers, clad in themed attire, take center stage.
The Burlesque Sail departs from Battery Park.
