What Do You Do at a Bachelorette Party in Atlanta?

There's plenty to do in Atlanta, including quick and easy excursions to the surrounding fun. Here's the ultimate three-day itinerary to help you plan the best Atlanta bachelorette party:

Day 1

Afternoon: After settling into your hotel or AirBnB, make your way to Atlanta's Ponce City Hallto fuel up on some delicious bites at the market's food hall. Here you'll find craft cocktails, an edible cookie dough shop, Indian street food, and so much more. Don't forget to head up to the rooftop, where a beer garden offers tasty drinks and bites, along with equally delicious views of the city. Spend the afternoon taking in the city from here while the rest of your crew arrives.

Evening: Start the night with cocktails at Sundial Bar and Lounge, another spot with a great view of downtown Atlanta on the 73rd floor of the building it resides in. Then head over to the Southern Gentleman, an Atlanta must serving up southern gastropub fare like blackeye pea fritters, fried chicken, and pecan pie. For your first night on the town, head to an Atlanta classic—Sister Louisa's Church of the Living Room & Ping Pong Emporium. This dive-ish bar is a must visit for its charming quirkiness.

Day 2

Morning: Start the morning with breakfast atLocal Three in the Buckhead neighborhood. This seasonal-focused joint offers a Saturday brunch, dubbed one of the best in Atlanta. And you'll need to fuel up for the adventure you have ahead.

Afternoon: Take a tour of Atlanta's best breweries that includes stops at four breweries and a cidery over the course of 6 hours. The Atlanta Beer Bus takes you on your tour and caters the stops to your bride's specific tastes.

Evening: Tonight is the night for live music, but first grab a bite to eat at Nina & Rafi's, a delicious Italian spot with the perfect pizza to follow up your beer tour with. Then, head off to Tabernacle, a live music venue in a historic church, if someone you like is playing, or try your own voices at karaoke at Fam-Fam, where available private rooms reduce embarrassment for any shy members of your squad. Or if you want a club scene, make your way to Tongue and Groove where bachelorette parties are catered to and bottle service is available.

Day 3

Morning: Your last brunch should be at The Shed, where you can indulge in specialty Bloody Mary's and pitchers of mimosas alongside a southern brunch that includes a southern chicken omelette, catfish and grits, and Belgian waffles.

Afternoon: Time to pamper your bride before she heads home to wedding planning chaos. The spa at the Mandarin Oriental is an excellent and luxe place to get treatments and spend the day having a little R&R. Inquire about group rates and services.

Evening: Tonight is all about cramming in as much time with your gal pals as possible. Start with craft cocktails at Mother, where drinks are accompanied by art installations and a live DJ. Then it's off to your last dinner at Barcelona Wine Bar to share tapas and chat over bottles of wine. End the night at the Red Phone Booth, a classic speakeasy you enter through, you guessed it, a red phone booth.
