If bottle service, dancing all night, and waking up with a laughable (but worthwhile!) hangover is what you’re searching for, the Gaslamp has you covered. Depending on the type of music, ambiance, and cocktail selection you’re looking for, all it takes is a quick Google search and a short few blocks of walking.
We’d suggest Moonshine Flats, located at 344 Seventh Ave, San Diego, CA 92101.

4. Wine Tasting in Temecula
Wine tasting never fails a bachelorette party, ever. Just a quick 45-minute drive north of San Diego; nearby Temecula is home to a host of award-winning wineries, complete with quaint restaurants and scenic views for miles on end.

5. Create a Lasting Experience On Your Own Private Paddle Bar!
The best of all worlds; consider spending part of your special day experiencing one of San Diego’s newest attractions on the water.
Conveniently located central to all of San Diego, Paddle Pub offers your group of 7-16 passengers the ability to paddle your way through the beautiful Blue Lagoon of Mission Bay. Complete with 12 pedaling stations, plenty of bench seating, an awesome sound system to play YOUR favorite tunes, and you can’t forget about the party lighting… You’ll be sure to enjoy (and take endless pictures to document for the ‘Gram) this truly unique experience.
Oh yes, you’re also free to pack a cooler with all your favorite snacks and beverages (White Claw, anyone?), ensuring your party stays fueled up for the entire experience 🙂
To close this out, although it should go without saying that the venue and events that are ultimately chosen should coincide with the general preferences (and responsibility levels?) of the group of women attending the party; it’s important to keep in mind the ultimate goal of every bachelorette party… To create an experience that is certain to stand out from your typical “Girl’s Night Out.”
Bars, clubs, restaurants, and wineries are hard to beat; but when you can essentially package all of that into your own private paddle pub… Now that’s a no-brainer!
