Romanced by city skylines dotted with mesmerizing night lights, we’re imagining an intimate bachelorette evening shared with close friends. Steering clear of the typical debaucherous bachelorette party, we're forever looking for the most perfect city venues for a warm celebration filled with love, laughs and a questionable dance move or two. In cities overflowing with mediocre cocktails and restaurant settings to match, the search for those truly special venues can be a challenge. We’ve curated a list of The LANE team's favorite bars and restaurants from around the world, which provide the perfect backdrop for your leading lady's hens night.
Le Coucou, New York Classic French cuisine in an eclectic restaurant setting with sprawling glass windows, white-washed bricks and perfectly strung chandeliers. We love Le Coucou for an elegant bachelorette dinner.
Tartinery, New York Set amidst a reclaimed brick frame with chalkboard surfaces and excellent music, Tartinery is the ideal venue for a late lunch turned evening of laughs and celebrating for your leading lady.
Leo's Oyster Bar, San Francisco Between the fern-filled conservatory, the Champagne bar and the martinis, Leo’s oyster bar is the perfect setting for a casual evening with girlfriends.
Gwen, Los Angeles Set on the mezzanine level of Gwen’s restaurant, the Wine Room is an intimate and secluded dining venue, ideal for a special sit-down dinner with an extensive wine offering.
Hacienda, Sydney Inspired by gradiose Cuban styling, Hacienda is a luxe botanical oasis with an extensive cocktail list. Think Tropical Sours atop pastel lounge furniture, surrounded by glass windows overlooking panoramic views of the city and Sydney Harbour.
Beta Bar, Sydney Dilapidated walls and exposed brick archways, perfectly accompanied by lush velvet lounges and tiered hanging lights. We’ve long loved the interiors of this Sydney bar for bachelorette parties and weddings, serving cocktails with a sophisticated Greek twist.
Bar Machiavelli, Sydney A tyre factory turned chic warehouse venue, we love Bar Machiavelli for its moody atmosphere featuring high brick walls and a gilded bar. The masters of silky homemade pasta and an extensive wine list to match, Machiavelli is the ideal location for a low-key hens night.
Chin Chin & GoGo Bar, Melbourne Chin Chin restaurant and downstairs GoGo Bar is renowned for their innovative approach and perfect execution of Asian fusion dining. This cheeky, loud, quintessentially “Melbourne” venue is located down a laneway, of course. The barramundi salad is a must, accompanied by a cocktail or wine from their brilliantly curated list, and their fun, energetic soundtrack is perfect for ladies’ nights.
Sacripante Bar, Rome An art gallery and bar built into the bones of an old convent in Rome’s central Rione Monti neighborhood, rich with character and artistic charm. Offering a range of traditional and signature cocktails, Sacripante is fitting for an intimate evening with those who appreciate the eternal beauty of Italy's unique surrounds.
Dry Bar, Milan An enticing cocktail bar located in Milan, specializing in vintage drinks and an upbeat atmosphere. Drawn to the organic venue styling and the magnetizing Italian culture, we love Dry Bar for a cozy evening celebrating with your nearest. We recommend ordering a Between the Sheets - a delicious concoction of cognac, rum, Cointreau and lemon juice.
Clerkenwell Grind, London Located in an 1870’s warehouse, Clerkenwell Grind boasts a two-story loft space for chic soirees. We love Grind for its famous espresso-based cocktail menu and impeccably styled interiors; think soft blush furnishings, slender brass piping and curved velvet sofas.
Sketch, London Forever falling for blush color palettes, we’re unavoidably drawn to the artfully designed bar at Sketch. Think blush velvet booth seating, walls dressed in art and gold accents, and an exquisite a la carte menu.
