Every newly-engaged gal wants her bachelorette party to be one of the most most memorable nights of her life—so the pressure is on. But don’t stress just yet! Save that for the wedding planning. Here are some fabulous ideas and locales where you can host your soiree at for a guaranteed good time.
Few things are more fun and relaxing than spending a day by the pool with champagne in hand and your closest friends by your side. You don’t have to flee the city for the Hampton’s in order to score some sun and pool time during the summer. The saltwater pool at the McCarren Hotel and Pool is one of the few pools that are open to the public. If you’re a member of the Soho House (or can pull some strings), this is where you want to sun bathe. The Dream Downtown Hotel also has a fabulous pool featuring white sand imported from Montauk.
Save the typical brunch for another weekend. Your bachelorette party is the time to let the booze flow, don your sexiest high heels, and dance on tables. Every Saturday from 2 PM – 6 PM, Lavo hosts a champagne party brunch. Prepare to get wild because this party is basically the equivalent of being in a rowdy night club, but during the day. If you want to have a delicious meal and then party, you may want to check out Bagatelle beforehand. Feast on Eggs Bagatelle (eggs benedict with American caviar) and then dance the afternoon away. For a lovely brunch, great cocktails, and jazz music—not to mention an open roof in the summer time— head to Hotel Chantelle.
If you are over the partying scene and are looking to spend a relaxing day with your friends and family, consider booking a spa day. Brand new Spa Castle Premier 57, located in the heart of midtown, offers incredible amenities ranging from a bade pool with swim-up bar to sauna rooms. Book a massage to de-stress before your wedding day at Aire Ancient Baths. Besides offering wonderful massages, steamy hot tubs, and multiple steam rooms, Aire also offers a yoga and spa experience where you can enjoy an hour-long yoga class, a bath, and then a massage.
Pinky’s up–it’s afternoon tea time! What’s more elegant than tea service and finger sandwiches at the most sophisticated spots in NYC? The Mandarin Oriental boats a stunning lobby with views of the Manhattan skyline, plus house-made scones with jam. Get transported to Paris at Ladurée Soho and enjoy some of their renowned macaroons.
DINNER WITH A SHOW
If you want a dazzling night with dinner and great entertainment book a reservation for Queen of the Night at The Paramount Hotel. Duane Park offers a variety of live music and burlesque events to choose from while dining on items from their well-constructed menu such as tuna tartare and filet of branzino.
