Start the Fun
There is plenty of pre-game action in Asheville. Before the big night out:
You Must Eat
Let’s just say no to impersonal chains and generic dishes. Asheville is blessed with an abundance of terrific restaurants and plenty of local flavor. In honor of your bachelorette party, why not start at Early Girly Eatery? This farm-to-table favorite has something for everyone - yes, that means you, vegetarians and vegans! From the scrumptious Southern Breakfast to the Tofu Scramble, it’ll fuel you up for the day.
As you explore Asheville, the options for lunch and dinner are ample: White Duck Taco Shop, Rosetta’s Kitchen & the Buchi Bar, Chai Pani, Cúrate, Buxton Hall Barbecue, Table Asheville… Let your appetite be your guide!
And, a tip for tomorrow: after your night on the town, brunch at Tupelo Honey is a must. Trust us.
Whiling Away the Day
Ready to work off your scrambled eggs, grits, and biscuits? Don’t worry: there are endless options in Asheville. You can hit some of the east coast’s best hiking trails and enjoy jaw-dropping vistas on our many trails. From the meandering French Broad River Greenway to the more intense Mountains to Sea Trails, you’ll get your fitness on while enjoying stunning scenery.
Need something milder? Take a donation-based class at Asheville Community Yoga, rent some paddleboards, visit the beautiful North Carolina Arboretum, or try Painting with a Twist (creating art + snacks and beverages = awesome). Or indulge yourself at the Shoji Spa & Lodge, the Omni Grove Spa, or the Asheville Salt Cave.
If all this relaxation is making you thirsty, make sure your next stop is the winery at Biltmore Estate, Noble Cider, Asheville Distilling Company, New Belgium Brewing Company, or Wicked Weed Brewing. You can opt for an organized Brews Cruise or go on your own walking tour of downtown’s best places to imbibe.
Don’t Forget to Plan Ahead
If you opted for some liquid refreshment, make sure safety is your first priority. You can find plenty of reliable taxi and transportation services, as well as Uber, to take you from point A to point B… to point Z. It’s going to be a fun night!
On to the Main Event! Amp Up Your Bachelorette Party in Asheville
Asheville has wonderful, cozy cafes and coffee shops. But this is a bachelorette party, y’all. We need to up the ante! After you grab some grub from Hemingway’s Cube, Red Stag Grill, Bouchon, the Blackbird, Chestnut, Rhubarb, or the Laughing Seed Cafe, try these great venues:
The Orange Peel
This funky club was named as one of Rolling Stone’s Top 5 Rock Clubs in the US. It has hosted acts from Beastie Boys and Jack White to Bob Dylan, Blondie, and Lauryn Hill. You’ll find a great atmosphere and electric shows. A solid first stop on your bachelorette night.
What do you do when one person wants to hear music, another wants to dance, another wants to go to an art gallery, and another freak wants to look at weird oddities and artifacts? Well, you go to the Odditorium. They play virtually any genre of music and feature comedy shows, freak shows, trivia, poetry, burlesque, and, best of all, oddities and strange collections. It’ll be interesting, that’s for sure.
From dance parties to drag shows, there’s a reason that Scandals NightClub is an Asheville treasure. The atmosphere is both lively and friendly, and as more than a few Yelp reviewers have pointed out, the music is great, and the drinks are pretty cheap. We’re in.
Off the Wagon Dueling Piano Bar
All roads lead to Off the Wagon! An Asheville, NC institution, Off the Wagon is the ideal place for the ladies to let loose, sing, and enjoy the best dueling piano musicians this side of… anywhere. Our shows feature an all-request format, and you’ll be amazed at the repertoire of our piano magicians. The atmosphere is fun, dynamic, and, hey, who knows - you could become part of the show. Grab a specialty drink and get ready for a memorable night.
Private parties are available, and if you want to join the crowd, just be sure to make reservations for large parties. The Off the Wagon Dueling Piano Bar musicians are also happy to play at an offsite function, so just be sure to ask. We’ll bring the fun: you sit back and relax.
