BACHELORETTE BAR CRAWL ON BROADWAY
Honky Tonk Central
As Jake Owen once said, get “down to the honkytonk” with the bachelorette party special ($75 per person) including all access to the VIP balcony with an open bar for 3 hours and private bartender.
Home to the ONLY mechanical bull on Broadway, this venue offers a live Rock Bar, Karma Lounge dance club, and game room to make the most of a night out with the gals.
Tootsies Orchid Lounge
A world famous honky tonk establishment that satisfies your dancing crave with 3 stages of non-stop live music. Willie Nelson was discovered here and “Tootsie’s Wall of Fame” is aligned with country music memorabilia any fan would enjoy. You can’t miss this unique purple building on Broadway!
Luke’s 32 Bridge
You won’t want the night to end shaking your country tail off at Luke Bryan’s new venue that opened last year. This venue features 6 floors, 8 bars, and 4 live music stages. Fill up on Luke’s favorite Southern and American cuisines or simply roll with a sushi bowl.
Nashville Pedal Tavern
This BYOB party bike can seat 15 and is an affordable way to explore the heart of downtown Nashville on wheels!
HOEDOWN AT HISTORICAL SIGHTS
Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum
Immerse yourself in the culture of Music City through the world’s largest repository of country music artifacts. Take a tour from the museum to Historic RCA Studio B where legends such as Elvis Presley and Dolly Parton recorded tracks.
Grand Ole Opry
If your bachelotette's favorite artist is not performing at the time, schedule a VIP backstage tour for a behind the scenes look of where history has been made. Beginning as a live radio broadcast in 1925, the Grand Ole Opry paved the way to success for countless country artists and is currently the longest running broadcast in American history.
Jack Daniel’s Distillery Tour
Although Jack Daniel’s Distillery is located in Lynchburg (about an hour from Nashville), it’s worth the trip to see the oldest registered distillery in the U.S. Schedule a tour to see the creation of Tennessee whiskey and you’ll appreciate the buzz even more!
Johnny Cash Museum
Fall into the ring of fire reliving the Man in Black’s journey shaping country music – conveniently located along Music Row.
Parthenon – Centennial Park
Take a selfie with a 42 foot tall replica of the original Parthenon from Athens, Greece. Need inspiration to decorate your first home after the wedding? Peep inside the museum to find 19th and 20th century sculptures and paintings.
SUMMER EVENTS: SUNRISE, SUNBURN, SUNSET, REPEAT
The best four days of the year for country music fans occur every June when the Country Music Association hosts its iconic music festival. Your party has a good chance of running into big name artists on the street that come to perform at venues ranging from the Chevy Riverfront Stage to Nissan Stadium.
Music City Hot Chicken Festival
Celebrate Nashville’s unique hot chicken with locals every 4th of July in East Park. Sign your bachelorette up to practice her cooking skills in an amateur cooking competition and show off your party’s water guns during the fire truck parade.
River Queen Voyages
Looking for a break from the live music? Kayak on the Cumberland River to see riverfront homes, farms, and wildlife. This outdoor adventure also includes a photo of your party with the Nashville skyline as a backdrop. Make sure to pack your sunscreen!
