Where to Throw the Ultimate Bachelorette Party in Nashville

Park that pedal tavern, don that pink tank top, then go eat here

View as Map

Like finding a menu without a spin on hot chicken, or a Music City street without a scooter — the likelihood of being downtown without seeing a bachelorette party is nearly impossible in new Nashville.

With embracing all of the above in mind, Eater Nashville presents (after some admitted dread) an updated handy, honest, yet still decidedly mural-free guide offering up some of the best of the city’s spots to suit a bevy of bachelorettes.

So, if you’re currently on a Nashville-bound plane sneaking mini bottles of vodka into that club soda you ordered and just remembered those maid of honor duties to book dinner. If you’re getting hitched in May and have already ordered those blush pink tanks with something like “Nash trashed bash” printed on them. Or, if you’re hungover and need some hair of the dog and/or want to attempt to try to wash away the Broadway stench with mimosas and yes, hot chicken biscuits — this ultimate bachelorette party guide to eating and drinking in Nashville is for you.

Is there a must-add pre-wedding fling-before-the-ring stop that a bachelorette party absolutely should not miss? Be sure to drop it in the comments.

The Loveless Cafe

Copy Link

Many a bachelorette party heads southwest of town to prep for a night out (or recover from an evening in the rolling party hot tub) by cramming carbs at Nashville’s long-loved biscuit destination. At the Loveless Cafe, country ham and fried chicken-topped waffles reward those who brave the line — a decidedly more stomach-satisfying reward than the Instagram photo of the group with the wings that no one in the bachelorette party is happy with.

It’s a solid bet you’ve already got the Graduate’s Dolly-themed Barbie dreamhouse of a rooftop on your to-do list. Plan ahead by booking that reservation well in advance — as they book up, especially for a seat outside or a time slot at the pool. Be sure and try the champagne Jell-o shots — they taste as good as they look.

M Street’s Midtown mainstay’s menu offers cream cheese-drizzled red velvet waffles, cheddar cheese biscuits, and a group-friendly maple fondue for dipping. And of course Becky, there are mimosas, blood marys, and rosé. The good for groups brunch destination is typically walk-in only, but they do accept “first seating” early brunch reservations for groups of 6-8 on weekends. Early dinner reservations are also available, plus options for groups of 20 or more (just call the restaurant with plenty of warning).

bartaco

12 South’s beloved basic taco joint has hours long waits most any night of the week. Bachelorettes flock here for the guac (no queso here, sorry), fried plantains, and roasted chicken — in addition to, of course, the tacos loaded with everything from chorizo to cauliflower or miso cod and sesame aioli. Want to-go tacos at that Airbnb? Bartaco has party packs for 10 or more, starting at $14 per person.

Even the most hardcore rock stars need coffee — and a slight reprieve from all of the alcohol. And after a night of shaking it off Taylor-style and singing at the top of your lungs downtown — biscuit sandwiches, killer Conny & Jonny doughnuts, and coffee from one of Barista Parlour’s multiple Nashville locations could just cure what ails you. Well, that and a quick stop at an IV bar.

L.A. Jackson

This place has everything, bride-to-be. Icy glasses of pretty pink froze, shareable cocktails, stellar city views, and a short walk to those angel wings you’ve been waiting for a picture by all weekend.

STK Nashville

This steakhouse in the heart of the Gulch stakes its claim as the city’s “vibe dining” destination. Groups love the stunning space, shaved Brussels sprouts salad, seared sea scallops, and grilled octopus — alongside cocktails, wine and abundant steak, fish, and poultry options. 

L27 Rooftop Lounge

The Westin’s 27th floor lounge is another hotel rooftop spot, with gorgeous design and city views to match. Skyline views are even more exciting when there are new cranes popping up every day — and when there are lobster rolls and drinks.

It’s possible to cross off eating hot chicken and a moonshine tasting in one fell swoop with a stop at the cool new tasting room, live music, and outdoor game destination from the folks at Tennessee-based Ole Smoky Distillery and Yee-Haw Brewing. 30-000 square feet allows expansive indoor and outdoor stages multiple seating areas, moonshine and beer flight tastings, and one of the largest TV screens in the city. A truck outside serves iconic Prince’s Hot Chicken tenders, while inside, Asheville-based White Duck Taco Shop has a walk-up counter for tacos and queso.

Proper Sake Co.

The cozy little sake tasting room in Pie Town is only open on Fridays from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 1 to 9 p.m., but they are available for private events as well. Proper sake is a great daytime stop for chill vibes and sake flights — and soon, dumplings.

With a gorgeous scene set in the historic Melrose Theater, crowd-pleasing cocktails, and a well-executed menu, it’s a simple call to make a dinner reservation for the group here. And if the charcuterie and cheese boards, agnolotti, and ice cream sandwiches weren’t enough to convince the squad — that bathroom photo lighting absolutely will.

Acme Feed & Seed

At the far end of Broadway in a building constructed in 1890, find a trio of distinct experiences on each of Acme’s three floors. Downstairs, honky-tonk vibes meet a counter-ordered quintessentially Nashville food menu of hot chicken sandwiches and pulled pork tacos. The second floor sees lounge vibes with communal seating, vintage games, TVs, a photo booth, and sushi. Acme’s rooftop allows Broadway and river views — and ample frozen drinks alongside food, that can be brought up from the first floor.

The Diner Nashville

Copy Link

Beyond Waffle House (and there’s certainly nothing wrong with a heap of hangover-helping scattered, smothered, and covered hash browns), 24-hour dining in Nashville is hard to come by. Downtown’s answer to alcohol 23 hours a day and food all the live-long day is the Diner. With 6 floors of seating and a vast menu — late night offerings include breakfast staples like hot chicken and waffles alongside steak, chicken wings, and cheeseburgers. The Diner is one of the only places to go after closing down those Broadway bars.

The Hampton Social

The Hampton Social offers photo opps in every direction — and there’s even a rosé lounge.

Bachelorette groups flock for the swinging bed, signature frosé, and of course, the rooftop.

If Instagram-friendly decor and a bachelorette-pleasing boozy brunch are in order (and perhaps a break from Broadway’s country music), consider mimosas and spritzes at the Parisian all-day cafe’s Sunday jazz brunch. On Sundays from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., Croque Madames and Belgian waffles share the table with oysters and some of the city’s best fried chicken and biscuits.

For one of the best lunches and brunches in the city, book a table in advance at the restaurant that seemingly initiated Nashville’s dining scene boom. While Sean Brock is no longer affiliated with the brand, Nashville outpost executive chef Katie Coss keeps Husk consistently a destination for its fried chicken, Southern vegetable plate, deviled eggs, and cheeseburger.

Pinewood Social

Whether it’s coffee, breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner you’re seeking, Pinewood’s bowling lanes and dipping pools add a little something different for groups visiting Nashville. Share avocado tots and crispy tater tots while drinking large format cocktails that serve groups of 6 or 12.

If tiki drinks and tropical/tech-y vibes feel tremendously on brand for the weekend’s bachelorette festivities — East Nashville new robot-riddled tiki bar fits the bill. A large-format scorpion bowl serves 4, while food-wise, groups can collectively chow down on sandwiches, plantain nachos, and rice bowls before heading to Broadway to dance while keeping fingers crossed for that country star sighting.
