She said YAS! The gown has been ordered, the guest list finalized, the venue locked in, the invitations sent — and now it’s time for the final fling before the ring. You want your bestie’s El Paso bachelorette party to be everything she wants and more, and we’re here to make it as seamless as possible for you!
El Paso, Texas, is a vibrant city near the Mexico border that offers plenty of fabulous activities for the bride-to-be and her squad. Whether you’re looking for an unforgettable night of dancing, outdoor adventures, or a relaxing day at the spa, we’ve rounded up some of the best ideas for your El Paso bachelorette party.
1. Relax and unwind at the spa
If you’re looking for a relaxing day with your girlfriends, a day at the spa is just what the wellness doctor ordered! El Paso has several luxurious spas to choose from to suit all your pampering needs. For those seeking an ultra-luxe resort-style spa, the Woodhouse day spa boasts a variety of facials from firming to hydrating, massage therapies, body treatments, manis and pedis, and more. Slip into their signature robe (and a state of complete relaxation) as you sip on a mimosa or glass of wine in between services.
2. Take a margarita tour
Legend has it that the margarita originated in 1942 right outside of El Paso in Juárez, Mexico, at a bar called Tommy’s Place. So, it’s only natural that your crew should experience this beloved beverage and then some for your El Paso bachelorette party! A truly “Texas-sized” margarita can be had at Los Bandidos de Carlos & Mickey’s — it’s so big, it’s actually limited to one per customer. Julio’s Mexican Food is another must-try, with classic Mexican fare and a jalapeno margarita that will give your taste buds a run for their money. One customer claims “the best margarita” they ever had (and amazing enchiladas) can be found at L&J Cafe, while Malolam offers inventive tacos and unique margs — like their famed Mint Jamaica Margarita.
3. Book a private adults-only dance class
No El Paso bachelorette party is complete without an amazing squad experience: Book a private class for you, your bride-to-be, and all her friends at DivaDance El Paso! Take a morning class followed by brunch, or kick off the evening and slay while learning a fierce, fun routine to a song of your choosing and work your inner Beyoncé or Britney! Perfect for dancers of all levels (no experience required!), a private DivaDance class is guaranteed to loosen you up and make for an El Paso bachelorette party to remember. Party package add-ons are available including cupcakes, champagne, custom tank tops, and more!
4. Go on a scavenger hunt through the city
Speaking of experiences, put your detective skills to the test with a scavenger hunt! There are several companies that specialize in creating custom scavenger hunts for your El Paso bachelorette party, and you can explore the city while completing fun challenges and earning points! Solve puzzles, complete challenges, and explore historic landmarks during this modern-day treasure hunt through Let’s Roam, or explore the rich culture through Operation City Quest. Most scavenger hunts average about two hours; just wear comfy shoes because you will be getting those steps in!
5. Take a wine tour
El Paso is home to several wineries, making it the perfect place to take a wine tour. Enjoy the beautiful scenery, taste local wines, and create lasting memories with your closest friends! The stunning Zin Valle Vineyards offers tastings and tours of their vineyard, where the easygoing desert warmth meets the soul of Tuscany for an unexpected worldly experience. Share some bottles and pair them with one of Zin’s delicious hand-crafted charcuterie trays. And just north of El Paso in New Mexico, the La Viña Winery is also worth a visit, as it has a beautiful outdoor space where you can enjoy a glass of wine while taking in the sprawling views.
6. Take a hike (literally)
El Paso is surrounded by beautiful mountains and desert landscapes that offer endless opportunities for outdoor adventure. Check out the Franklin Mountains State Park, which offers several trails of varying difficulty levels. The Wyler Aerial Tramway is also a must-see, as it offers breathtaking views of the city and the surrounding mountains. Or hike to the top of Mount Cristo Rey in nearby New Mexico — though with no security or first aid on-site, climbing this monument is at your own risk. Or stick closer to the ground and book a guided tour to explore the Chihuahuan Desert or visit the El Paso Zoo.
7. Explore the El Paso nightlife
A lively nightlife scene with plenty of bars and clubs to choose from is sure to complete your El Paso bachelorette party. Hope and Anchor is the ultimate patio bar with a quirky, funky vibe and a massive selection of beers and spirits, while Craft and Social is a wine bar and taproom with full kitchen — located in a high-energy warehouse space. Seeking something chicer, yet still chill? Puff Social Hookah & Cocktail Lounge is a posh destination featuring white leather furniture and black and neon lights. Or make plans to attend an amazing drag show at Touch Bar El Paso for a night to remember.
