I want to take a pole dance class with my girls and have an old school slumber party with food, games, and we will have drinks but you dont have to ;). Im not a huge bar person, and not really into strippers so i wanted an alternative too.

We went on a couple wine tour tastings (which I realize is alcohol related), played mini golf, went for dinner then had an old school slumber party at a friend’s house.

Are there any dueling piano bars in your area?  You don’t have to have a crazy night of bar hopping & drinking, but it’s still a fun night out that I feel like could be enjoyed by all the ages you mentioned in your post.. You guys can order apps or other food, maybe have a few drinks, sing along to some fun songs.. They’re usually a really fun atmosphere, and if you make reservations ahead of time you don’t have to worry about getting a table or anything.

I drink, but not nearly as much/often as I used to, and don’t really want to do the whole get wasted & go bar hopping (nothing against those who do, I just don’t enjoy that scene much anymore), but I really want to go to a piano bar for mine.. I think it’ll be really fun.. I’ve always had a good time at the ones I’ve been to before!

My wild and crazy bar hopping days are definitely behind me too. I have no desire to go out and get hammered and then feel like crap the next day.

What I would LOVE to do for my bachelorette party is go to a Broadway show and stay overnight in NYC (we live 3.5 hours away). Unfortunately, 2/3 of my girls are new moms and are really in no position to afford such a thing, nor would I feel comfortable asking them to so we’re planning on going out to a nice dinner and then to see a show at a local theatre (a few off-broadway shows come here through the year). My bridesmaids (my 3 best friends) and I did musical theatre together all through high school so this is right up our alley. Doing something like this also allows me to include my mom, FMIL and other female family members that normally wouldn’t be included for typical bachelorette parties.

Museums, salsa dance lessons, horseback riding, zoo, hike, movie marathon, board game night?

I’m an ‘activity’ person, so competitive bowling between your girls or some town wide photo scavenger hunt (and you can incorporate winter things too, like building a bride and groom snowman for one photo, etc). I like some of the unique ideas the other bees have mentioned, like going out for pole dancing lessons (or roller derby!) and all coming back for a sleep over in PJs and sleeping bags watching movies from your JR high years. Any of these can have no alcohol or a little or a lot, participant’s choice.

Piano Bars are definitely a hoot!  very fun!  If you like the fun without the alcohol, then, definitely this could be for you. 

I also like the slumber party idea.  It was so much fun last time I did (and alcohol free) We had a fire pit outside and roasted marshmallows and made smores.  Oh! definitely don’t forget the junk food! LOL…  perhaps a piano bar (wayyyyyyy fun!!!!!  that gets my vote) then a slumber party! fun times:)

No matter what you decide! have fun!

Laser force!!! (Not sure if you call it that in America, it’s like paint ball but no bruising because you use laser guns.) And a sleep over afterwards.

What about pottery painting or a jewelry making class? For one of my parties, we did jewelry making and then back to a friend’s for tons of food and game night.

What about Dave and Busters or a “grown up” arcade like that? Or even go-karts? lol. My friends and I are going to NYC and I think we’re going to Lucky Strikes…an upscale adult bowling lounge thing.

A friend of mine did something like what you’re looking for– we started off playing Whirlyball, then went to a hotel to open presents, out to dinner, and then went back to the hotel, where there was a chocolate buffet in the lobby! It was so nice!
