bachelorette party (philly area)

Recommended Posts

i have to admit, i'm older than your average bachelorette, and therefore i haven't got a clue as to where to go out in the philadelphia area for a bachelorette party. anyone have any ideas/suggestions?

 

we were considering a mexican restaurant followed by a bar/dancing (but wherehuh.gif). nothing too crazy and especially nothing involving greasy stripper boys, lol.

 

[i found this (Awesome 80s Prom, Off Broadway, Bachelorette Parties, New York) which looks amazingly fun, but it's in NYC and i just don't think everyone will want that much hassle involved (limo or train, possibly a room, etc.). why can't this be in philly?]

So I had my bachelorette party 2 weeks ago in Philly and this is what we did...started at my apartment and then went to Chifa (7th and Chestnut) and then we had a table at G lounge.
Some of my friends wanted to do a few different things including going out in the gay neighborhood to Woodys and then over to Lucky Strike.
There are a ton of fun places in the city. Let me know if you need any ideas-I live and work in center city

I'm kind of over the whole going out and spending money (and drinking and driving) thing- sooooo, we're having my party at my sister's (MOH) house. We're having mexican themed tapas, margarita and plenty of tequila shots and it's going to be a Passion Party- which is like a tupperware or an avon party only with sex toys instead- It should be fun!!

 

I'm sure wherever/whatever you do it'll be a blast b/c you'll be with your best friends! Have fun!!

if you want to do a mexican restaurant i'd suggest el vez. it's one of the steven starr restaurants and it's delish with awesome drinks! it can be pricey though. a cheaper option would be el azteca. you can byo tequila and they make a mean margarita.

 

my bachelorette party was in olde city. the girls went to continental for martinis and the guys went to mahogany for cigars. then we met up at lucy's hat shop (a bar, not a hat shop) on 3rd and market.

 

blkatz made a good call on lucky strike. it's a bar/bowling alley and is a lot of fun.. but no dancing there.

 

but whatever you do... don't go to mad river.. groooooooss.

are you looking to bar hop? or park it up at one place and just party? how big of a group? are you planning it or just giving suggestions??

Katrina - i love El Vez as well but I would actually suggest El Camino Real over El Vez - not as expensive and just as good if not better - it is new and on Liberties Walk across from Bar Ferdinand. and El Azteca recently got their liquor license so i am not sure if you can bring your own tequila anymore sad.gif

Lucky Strike or North Bowl are GREAT ideas!

sooo maybe we are onto something here...

you guys could go to El Camino Real (mexican food, margaritas, great jukebox, fun atmosphere - then after dinner walk like 4 blocks south to North Bowl (you could reserve the area upstairs where they have 2 private bowling lanes and a lounge area next to the upstairs bar - it is nice and overlooks the whole downstairs!)

Alyssa-I loved Chifa-the food was really good and the atmosphere was fun. We ate so much food I wasn;t sure I was able to drink! Everything was super yummy.

I live in Naval Square and I work on 18th and Market :)

oh snap! alyssa, maybe you shouldn't move to the suburbs after all.. then you'll wind up all out of touch like me! i'm so excited to try el camino real now! we are mexican food junkies.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
