Bachelor & Bachelorette Parties

Shake a Boa and Head for NOLA

Your turn to plan the bachelorette party? Get the bride a tiara, a feather boa and a “look-at-me, I’m-the-bride-to-be” t-shirt and let the memory making begin in New Orleans.

Places to Stay

New Orleans is one of America’s most walkable cities so it won’t be hard to find accommodations the bride will rave about right in the middle of the fun. Is she into history? Choose between a grand luxury hotel, a unique boutique hotel in a Creole cottage, French Quarter Townhouses, or a sweet B&B. Does she love sitting around the pool? We suggest you find a place in the French Quarter with an awesome courtyard pool. Is she more comfortable with a national brand? There are plenty to choose from. Check out your options here.

Begin Your Weekend Smelling Like a Rose...Or Whatever

Every bachelorette party in New Orleans should begin with a private party at Bourbon French Parfum, where you'lll each work with a blending specialist to create a custom scent that reflects your own personalities and body chemistry. You'll love the way you smell walking through the French Quarter and, of course, down the aisle on the big day. Learn more here.

Places to Eat (You Can’t Diet so Don’t Even Try It)

While it’s always fun to try the new and trendy, since there’s a wedding theme here, we suggest you start with "something old" (like Antoine’s, Galatoire’s or Commander’s Palace). You’re also going to want to find a great po-boy shop and some place known for their seafood or for their classic Creole options like Acme or Oceana. Or how about high tea at the Windsor Court?It’s kind of girly, but you’ll love it. 

Things to Do Before the I Dos

Swamp tours, ghost adventures, Cajun dancing at Mulate’s, cooking classes…you can do it all or you can just find a great cocktail bar like the ones at Sobou (we recommend the Iridescent Gods) or Barcadia (sip Strawberry Moonshine Lemonade while playing vintage and modern arcade games) and get the party started. The great thing about New Orleans is you don’t have to choose a designated driver. Take the streetcar, pedicabs, or a horse and carriage ride instead. Learn more about transportation here.

Places to Party

Before she walks down the aisle, make sure the bride does a pub crawl down Bourbon Street (don’t miss the piano bar at Pat O’Brien’s or the DJs and light shows at Bourbon Heat). Then hit the clubs on Frenchmen Street for great dancing and music. Learn a little about the live music scene here.

Places to Recover

Overdo it a little? We suggest brunch at Tujague’s (read review here) or Bistreaux. At the latter, ask for Marv’s Marvelous Milk Punch (a little hair of the dog that bit you). Then spend the day around a courtyard pool. If you book the two-story Carriage House at Maison Dupuy, you can enjoy private spa services in your own room.
