If your group loves classic soul and R&B, you’ll appreciate C-Boy’s Heart & Soul, which has been named one of Austin’s 15 Most Ridiciously Fun Restaurants by Zagat. There are numerous other venues to choose from, but these are the currently the hottest.
3. Take in a screening at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.
There are multiple locations within the city and you can call and reserve the best seats in the house ahead of time at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. Dinner and drinks, including several signature cocktails, are served during the film, with options including old favorites and new releases.
4. Have an amazing dinner at Uchi.
Uchi, a Japanese restaurant, has been a favorite of locals for years, thanks to their wide selection of yummy sushi. It’s the perfect spot for a bachelorette party filled with foodies in search of an unforgettable meal in a stylish setting.
5. Head outdoors for fun in the sun.
If your group loves to spend time outdoors, hike (or rent a bike) the 10-mile Lady Bird Hike and Trail. The trail is paved, takes you over the Colorado River, and offers spectacular views of the city skyline.
6. Get out on the water.
Lady Bird Lake (previously known as Town Lake) is the perfect place for kayaking, canoeing, and standup paddle boarding. All the equipment can be rented and everyone is sure to have tons of fun, especially if you have a particularly active bride.
7. Spend the day catching some rays at Barton Springs Pool.
This 3-acre pool is situated within 358-acre Zilker Park, which also provides plenty of other outdoor stuff to do. Fed from underground springs, the pool stays a comfy 68-70 degrees year-round and has several diving boards. At times, you can get in completely free, which makes it an economical option for any group on a budget. As an added bonus, there is an area of the pool that is topless friendly, which you can take advantage of if you don’t want tan lines on the wedding day. The cool water will leave you rejuvenated and refreshed. Be aware that parking can get bad, but you always have the option of taking a cab directly to the entrance.
