A Savannah Bachelor Party City Guide to Plan Your Weekend
There are many different sides to Savannah: You have your low-key parts full of Southern charm and hospitality, and lush greens for golfing. Then there's the open container laws that make this equally as much a party town. And of course, its nearby islands and beaches where you can find water sports and fishing. So to say a Savannah, Georgia bachelor party can have it all isn't an exaggeration—you really can have all of the above in one perfect bachelor party weekend.
What Are Some Savannah Bachelor Party Ideas?
There's plenty to see and do in Savannah on the ultimate guys' weekend. You just have to pick which party of the city's culture and history you want to take part in. From delicious eats—from Southern fare to pub bites—around town to bar crawls and breweries to golfing, fishing, and more, you'll find plenty to keep you busy on a Savannah bachelor party. (And check out The Knot Shop for group gifts to make more of the ultimate weekend.)
For the Golfers
Spend a weekend hitting the links at one or more of the 50+ golf courses in and around Savannah. With more than 200 days of sunshine a year, this is a golfer's paradise.
For the Foodies
Savannah is home to some of the country's top restaurants, with offersings from chefs including Hugh Acheson and Sean Brock. So you won't be lacking taste bud-pleasing dishes on your weekend here.
For the History Buffs
There's a ton of history to discover in Savannah, including the spooky kind. Take in Savannah's unique heritage on a comedic trolley tour of the city that is just as funny as it is informative. If you'd rather get your spooks, a haunted pub crawl shares Savannah's eerie past with cocktails to settle your nerves. Of course, there are also Savannah's famous cemeteries, mansions, and squares—including the one where Forrest Gump famously said "life is like a box of chocolates."
For the Water Lovers
This coastal town has plenty of ways to enjoy the water: For one, a chartered fishing trip where you'll reel in big catches plus take in Savannah's marshes. Or, head to Tybee Island where you can take part in water sports—think jet skis and kite boarding—or just enjoy a day at the beach.
For the Bar Hoppers
One of the reasons to visit Savannah for a bachelor party: The open container laws. Upheld within Savannah's Historic District, you and your crew can carry up to 16 ounces each out in the open. Thankfully, there's also a great bar scene to help you imbibe.
What Do You Do at a Bachelor Party in Savannah?
For the ultimate three-day Savannah, Georgia bachelor party itinerary, you'll want to fit a little of everything in—good food, great drinks, live music, fishing, golfing, and so much more. Here's what we recommend:
Morning: Start the trip off with brunch at Hitch, and outpost of the equally delicious Treylor Park. Doors open at 11 so you'll have plenty of time to check into your hotel or AirBnB beforehand. But still, you won't want to miss this menu full of delicious bites like bacon, egg, and cheese flatbread, Savannah hot chicken and waffles, and shrimp and grits tacos. Plus signature cocktails like a Georgia Mule and pecan bourbon shots make this a worthwhile start to the day.
Afternoon: Get to know Savannah on a Savannah Slow Ride. On this pedal-powered cruise, you'll take in the city and take advantage of the open container laws while you explore. Stops at pubs along the way offer you the chance to refill with drink specials. If you're hungry after all the pedaling, head to the riverfront for a bite at Spanky's, the home of original chicken finger. Walk the historic waterfront while you're there.
Evening: Before dinner, take in the city from new heights with a happy hour at the Top Deck Bar. From on top of the Cotton Sail Hotel, you'll have a view of the Savannah River and historic Bay Street as you sip on handcrafted cocktails and beers on tap. Make dinner on the first night count with a reservation at Husk, Sean Brock's Savannah outpost. The menu changes seasonally (and sometimes daily), but favorites have included aged beef tartare, snapper sashimi, smoked pork, and coal-roasted chicken. After dinner, head to Savannah's oldest bar: The Pirate House. Opened in 1753, you'll enjoy a fun, history ambiance with drinks like the Skull Crusher and the Bloody Pirate or a sampling of local craft beers.
Morning: Today starts with a bottomless brunch at The Ordinary, which includes $12 unlimited mimosas, sharable bites like pork belly donut sliders and loaded fritter tots, and mains like a salmon and crab BLT and the meatloaf brunch skillet.
Afternoon: Today is all about being on the water, so pick your poison with what will satisfy your crew. For those who want to reel one in, book a four-hour charter through Real Em N for a deep sea fishing adventure where you can catch sea bass, flounder, barracuda, and amberjack. For those who want a different kind of adventure on the water, head to Tybee Island, just a half hour drive from downtown Savannah. Here you can choose to lounge on the beach, or take part in water sports including jet skis and kayaks, as well as kite boarding and stand up paddle boarding.
Evening: Back on dry land, head to Service Brewing and Moon River Brewing Company for a few pours before dinner. Then it's off to Belford's for a delicious surf and turf dinner with options like a 12 ounce New York strip, jumbo lump crab cakes, and southern fried chicken with smoked gouda mac and cheese. After dinner, if you're feeling like live music and a real bachelor-bachelorette scene, make your way to Savannah's Smiles, a dueling piano bar where you'll find plenty of soon-to-be-married folks and their groups singing and dancing the night away. Reservations and party packages are recommended. Need a late night munch after the fun? Don't miss grabbing a slice at Vinnie Van GoGo's.
Morning: Once you've rallied the troops, head to Collins Quarter, which serves its brunch menu all day long. Indulge in bananas foster French toast, buttermilk biscuits with chicken sausage, poached eggs, and gravy, and short rib hash.
Afternoon: Today, grab your clubs to hit the greens. Choose between the many golf courses available around Savannah, including the scenic Club at Savannah Harbor, historic Bacon Park which was established in 1926, or Southbridge Golf Club for those looking for a real challenge. On your way back to the hotel or AirBnB, stop in at Exotic Cigars & Gifts fo a wide breadth of cigar options to enjoy with the guys on a walk around the city before dinner.
Evening: Happy hour tonight is at Churchill's for $3 "beer of the day" and $2 draughts, plus $4 Jack Daniels, Titos, and Captain. And that's not to mention delicious bites like mac and cheese fritters and Nashville hot wings. For dinner, make it casual but delicious at the Green Truck Pub, home to 18 types of burgers and sandwiches, plus housemade fries, and a rotating list of beer and wine. For drinks, head to another rooftop spot for one last epic view of the city at The Grove. Or for a more low-key vibe, bar hop between Molly McPherson's, Wet Willies (for frozen drinks), or The Chromatic Dragon for a night of drinking and games.
