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.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
