With amazing bars, restaurants, and things to do in the city, coupled with the charm that comes along with its live music scene, you can rest assured that the bachelorette party in Austin will be one to remember. Read on for some essential info on how to plan the ultimate bachelorette party in Austin!

Let’s Get Wet

Getting out on the water is one of the most popular activities in Austin. If you’re looking for a great daytime activity, you can rent different types of boats to go down the river or out on the lake. We definitely recommend a party boat when going to Lake Austin or Lake Travis. Party cove is where it’s at. If you have a large group, you can rent a full barge! Or if you’re looking for something a little different, you can float the San Marcos or New Braunfels river on a tube. Stock your coolers and bring some water, as this is a marathon, not a sprint. Throw in some jello shots and you’ve got yourself a killer day. Lastly, if you’re looking for something a bit more low key, you can rent a paddleboard or canoe and paddle around Lady Bird Lake, right next to downtown. Regardless of where you end up, when you’re floating with all of your friends, you can have as much fun as you want without worrying about breaking any laws or getting too rowdy.

Eat Some BBQ

Austin is home to some of the best BBQ in the country. If you’re in town for a bachelorette party, there are plenty of places to get your fill of brisket, ribs and all the fix’n’s. Definitely check out la barbecue, Valentina’s, Franklin, Micklethwait, Salt Lick, or Terry Black’s.

In-home activities

When you think Texas, you think cowboys. And let’s be honest, there aren’t too many cowboys walking around downtown Austin. Luckily, there’s one company that brings them to you! The Cocktail CowBoys are expert party hosts and country butlers. Think sexy cowboy, but without the creepiness and X-rated activities. These CowBoys will make and serve drinks, help with party games, keep the party area clean, be Spotify DJs, and take and pose in pictures. It’s a perfect addition to a night in, a game night, pregame, brunch, or pool party. But even if you don’t hire the CowBoys, be sure to plan some downtime at home.

Relax At Barton Springs Pool

If you’re looking for a place to soak up some sun, Barton Springs Pool is where it’s at. Located in Zilker Park, this natural pool was formed by the springs that run under the city of Austin. One of the most popular summertime activities for locals, Barton Springs Pool offers a refreshing respite from the Texas heat and is perfect for those who love to swim laps.


For nightlife, Sixth Street is a great place to start. There are plenty of bars and restaurants with fun atmospheres that you’ll want to explore and enjoy. Whether you’re on West 6th, Dirty 6th, or East 6th, you’ll find a bar that fits your groups vibe. If you’re looking for something slightly more low-key, head over to Rainey Street. This is an area full of houses turned into small bars that have a good atmosphere, day or night.


If you’re looking for a hip, trendy spot with some delicious Mexican food, Fonda San Miguel will be the best option for you. It has an awesome atmosphere any day of the week. It’s classy but not stuffy, making it perfect for bachelorettes who want to dress up but still have fun. There are tons of other food options for brunch, dinner, and everything in between. Just call and ask if they can accommodate groups.

South Congress

South Congress is a great place for a daytime or nighttime stroll with your girl gang. There are a handful of cute brunch spots, and plenty of hip shops with great Texas-themed clothes and decor. If you’re there at night, stop in the Continental Club, one of Austin’s most historic music venues.

Hope this short guide helps you plan your weekend in Austin! Yeehaw!
