The Perfect Northwest Arkansas Bachelorette Party Itinerary
Congrats, queen! We see you glowing, and that ring is GORG! You have lots of celebrating to do…like, so much. We can already feel that this is gonna be one of the most memorable experiences of your life. But of course, there’s lots of planning that goes into all of it. But no worries, Northwest Arkansas brides! We got you on the planning for one of the best parts of getting married: partying it up with your girls at your bachelorette party! We have the whole weekend planned from top to bottom, from dinner to brunch to the club. Scroll on for the perfect Northwest Arkansas bachelorette party itinerary, or use one event as a starting point for a Bentonville or Fayetteville bachelorette party idea!
First up, it only makes sense to start with what the girls love most: boozy brunch! Bentonville and Fayetteville are full of great spots for you and your bride tribe. Our two picks give you two different vibes: chic American and classic Southern. Pressroom is a chic, classy spot located in Bentonville, and has creative brunch offerings like Pastrami Poutine and Salmon Dip and Toast, along with your classic Eggs Benny and Blueberry Pancakes. Their cocktails are 100% the star of the show, with fun names Fuzzy Dice (Rye and Cherries) and Satin Cheetah (Rum and Berries). If that’s not your style, and you want to go full indulgence, hit Southern Food Company in Fayetteville, serving up classic Southern fixings like Shrimp and Grits and Huevos Rancheros, along with your classic Mimosas and Bellinis that you can order endlessly.
If brunch isn’t your style, start your Northwest Arkansas bachelorette party in Bentonville with a trip to some iconic bar experiences. For a chill, fun option, head to Bentonville Brewing Company, to sample some incredible handcrafted beers under a gorgeous patio with glimmering fairy lights (perfect for catching that gorgeous NWA sunset!) Once you get a bit of a buzz, take the party over to Feed & Folly in Fayetteville, a public house and rooftop bar, complete with creative cocktails and bar food favorites.
We’re taking it downtown for the night to Dickson Street in Fayetteville. Home to lively nightlife, you’re sure to find something fun to do in this part of Northwest Arkansas. For the dancing that must happen at every bachelorette party, pop into George’s Majestic Lounge, which is 100% as magical as it sounds. It is the longest-running club and live music venue in Arkansas, making it the perfect backdrop to make some great memories with your girls. Tip: Bring a disposable camera with you on the town to document everything, and have the memories printed and saved forever!
Okay, the next day (or another awesome bachelorette party idea for the nature girls), it’s time to relax and unwind. Nothing is better for that than seeing the beautiful sights this area has to offer. For the Bentonville brides, take a trip to the Crystal Bridges trails, where you can see gorgeous babbling springs, beautiful flowers and trees, and even some sculptures. For Fayetteville, head to Lake Fayetteville, which boasts 458 acres of land and 194 acres of water, complete with lots of recreational spaces and a botanical garden.
While you’re out exploring everything Northwest Arkansas has to offer, it’s so important to get those Instagram pics! Both Bentonville and Fayetteville are full of public art installations. There are endless colorful murals, giant sculptures, and neon signs that will make the perfect backdrops to document your perfect Northwest Arkansas bachelorette party!
Now, back to the partying! This time, we’re gonna go real classy, (and take a bit of a trip) and head to Sassafras Springs Vineyard and Winery in Springdale. This is a staple of the NWA experience and the perfect backdrop for your Northwest Arkansas bachelorette party! A highly regarded, award-winning winery and venue, Sassafras Springs offers tours of the gardens, live music, and of course tasting sessions. Super cute and cozy, this is the perfect place to make some memories (and get that buzz!)
Another great Northwest Arkansas bachelorette party idea in Fayetteville or Bentonville (or event to add to your itinerary) is an iconic DivaDance class at DivaDance Northwest Arkansas! Have your main character moment by dancing it out with your girls to your fav pop stars like Rihanna, Lizzo, Gaga, or Britney. Learn some super sexy choreography, drink champagne, get matching tanks, and even a music video-esque recording of your dance! What more could you want for your bachelorette?!
BOOK A NORTHWEST ARKANSAS BACHELORETTE PARTY:
If you thought we were gonna stop there, think again! We could really go on and on about all the places these two awesome NWA cities have to offer for your Northwest Arkansas bachelorette party (or weekend), but we’ll leave you with these last few spots you have to hit. For a caffeine boost at any point during your special girls’ day, hit Onyx Coffee Lab in Rogers, where coffee is roasted in-house every day and you can get unique offerings like Peach Oat Lattes or Terroir Hat Trick (chocolate cold brew). Head to 8th Street Market in Bentonville for all the fixings, including a yoga lab, taqueria, brewery, and so much more. Finish off your Bentonville bachelorette experience at The Momentary, a huge contemporary art space, which houses whole indoor and outdoor galleries, live performances, and food and drink options.
Hopefully, we took some of the planning off of your hands, so you can let loose and have the best Northwest Arkansas bachelorette party EVER. Now is your time to shine, bride!
