Are you looking for fun, unique and memorable bachelorette party ideas in NYC?
NYC is an amazing location for bachelorette parties, it’s the city of ‘Friends’ and ‘Sex and the City’ – so who wouldn’t want to jet away to the big city and have their bachelorette party in NYC? There are so many things to do in NYC for bachelorette parties, so I thought I’d put together a list of my favourite bachelorette party ideas in NYC – to get you started!
Bachelorette party idea #1 – Take a carriage ride in Central Park
First on my list of bachelorette party ideas in NYC, a classic! You know what we’re talking about, you’ve seen the Sex and the City episode where Big takes Carrie on a carriage ride around the park! The great thing about taking a carriage ride around the park, is that you don’t pay per person, you pay per carriage. This makes it a great activity for groups of 3-4, as the more of you in the carriage, the cheaper it is! I recommend booking your horse and carriage ride online in advance too – so that you don’t get taken advantage of or charged too much. You can book a premium carriage ride by clicking here.
Bachelorette party idea #2 – Have cocktails in the Skylark Bar
How could I write a list of bachelorette party ideas in NYC, without include an amazing cocktail bar? Skylark is my favourite bar in NYC, it has the MOST amazing views of the city, and the Empire State, and it has such a fun vibe and such a great atmosphere. The cocktail are fab, the music is great… and there’s even a balcony for taking the perfect group selfie with the Empire State in the background. I’d recommend booking a table ahead (as it can get pretty busy on Thursdays / Fridays / Saturdays).
Bachelorette party idea #3 – Do an NYC food tour
Next on my list of bachelorette party ideas in NYC, if your group of ladies love food and want to try some of the local food (NYC is known for amazing food after all!) then doing a food tour together is such a fun idea. Food tours are guided tours around the city, where you’ll get to stop in at various restaurants / cafes / vendors. Your host will have the specialities pre-prepared and the restaurant will know you’re coming, so usually you can jump the line too! You’ll get to try lots of the best neighbourhood dishes and try all the best bits in one day!
Bachelorette party idea #4 – Take a TV / movie locations tour together
You’ve all seen all the movies and TV shows set in NYC, and taking a tour of the city around all the main filming locations is a really fun way to spend a few hours in the city. You can pose for photos in all your favourite movie locations, and even snap some instagram stories! I recommend booking this TV and movie tour as it includes a walking tour of NYC, and you’ll also get to go behind the scenes at one of America’s most iconic TV studios too! This is such a fun addition to my list of bachelorette party ideas in NYC.
Bachelorette party idea #5 – Watch a Broadway musical
Next on my list of bachelorette party ideas in NYC – watch a Broadway musical! There are soooo many amazing Broadway musicals you can watch in NYC, and watching a musical together makes a perfect bachelorette party idea in NYC! A perfect night would be watching a music, then heading for a meal and cocktails afterwards! I couldn’t choose a favourite musical – there are so many I’ve seen and absolutely loved! If I had to choose though, for a bachelorette party my favourite picks would be….
Frozen the Musical (based on the hit Disney movie, this is upbeat and a perfect sing-a-long)
Aladdin the Musical (based on the Disney movie, this is a nostalgic, funny and colourful)
Mean Girls (you’ve seen the comedy chic-flick with Lindsey Lohan, this is the on-stage musical version)
The Lion King on Broadway (this is the classic, iconic Disney musical. A Broadway must-see)
Moulin Rouge! (quite a new addition to Broadway, based off the movie of the same name)
Wicked the Musical (Another Broadway classic, Wicked is the story of the witches of Oz)
Bachelorette party idea #6 – The RIDE
The RIDE is one of the most unique tours of NYC, so it makes a perfect choice for bachelorette party ideas in NYC. The RIDE is equal parts theatre, as it is a city tour. You’ll tour NYC in a huge bus, and you’ll sit sideways looking out onto the streets through a huge window. From the window, you’ll see the best city sights, but you’ll also see performers, street-shows and more! You can book tickets by clicking here. If you want something a bit quirky and different this is the bachelorette party ideas in NYC for you!
Bachelorette party idea #7 – Take a sightseeing cruise
Next on my list of bachelorette party ideas in NYC, sightseeing cruises! A sightseeing cruise of NYC ticks all the boxes! You get to see the city, relax, catch-up, take loads of amazing photos together… It’s perfect! Sightseeing cruises are also pretty affordable, especially considering how many memories you’ll make onboard! During the daytime, I recommend booking a classic sightseeing cruise, or if you want to take an evening boat cruise, then this sunset harbour lights cruise is an amazing choice. If you’re on a budget, then going on the Staten Island Ferry is a great choice (it’s free!) but you don’t get quite the same views, and it’s not quite as glamorous!
