My BMs are all from out of town so are relying on me to make decisions and give direction before going about organizing my bachelorette party (in under two months–ahhh!) Has anyone been to bach parties in Boston and what did you do? And does anyone have ideas on what could make this a total blast?

I’ve been to one at Dick’s Last Resort…and it was kind of dirty. They tied balloons to our hair with dirty things written on them…I won’t even tell you what mine said, but it implied I was a bit kinky.
Depends what you are looking for. This wouldn’t be my choice personally, but it is the only one I have been to in Boston.

We went for mani/pedis, then out to dinner, and then to a bar/club for some dancing. We did it this way because I have a lot of friends who are moms or pregnant and couldn’t stay for all of it, but were able to make it to at least the mani/pedis

I saw one once at Jake Ivory’s near Fenway. They have dueling piano’s there (where you can request any song, and the pianists play and you kind of sing along and dance), and it seemed like a pretty fun atmosphere for a bachelorette party.

katrinab – lucky you – you get to make the decisions! so tell us — what type of night do you want?! crazy drunken drinking from pen*s straws!? or a more low key, but fancy day on the town with champagne and tea and massages?! give me a little more detail and i’d be mooore then willing to help. party planning is one of my favorite things!!

i’m not 100% sure but i’m thinking along the lines of fun place for dinner and drinks, then maybe dancing. like futuremrslerman mentioned, i’d like to have something where people can come for some of it, but leave early if not up for a late thursday night out (this will be the thurs before my wedding, since nearly everyone is from out of town!) because of that as well, i dont want to have it be too drunken if you know what i mean.
one thought i had was a place like beehive for dinner, since it easily segues to casual/funky, but nice barlike scene. but i dont know where we could go dancing from there. im not really into the whole faneuil hall scene.
i moved to boston with Fiance so have not ever been really single here. my bar and restaurant repertoire does not seem bachelorette-y.
i am totally open for suggestions!

I’ve got the perfect place! A mix of hang out and have a few drinks … but head down to the dancefloor for some fun partying — Cleary’s! It’s near the Beehive (which I think is a great idea for a fun dinner with the girls!) … http://www.irishconnection.com/clerys.html … It’s located at Dartmouth and Columbus. Another idea instead of Beehive, I dont know if you’re into Sushi but there is a great sushi place right near Cleary’s as well – Osushi – http://www.osushirestaurant.com/ – If you want another stop or two you can head over to Boylston St and go to Lir or one of the many bars right there.
Hope that helps! Let me know if you don’t like those ideas, I can come up with some more!

Well, I am attending a Boston Bachelorette this weekend (what perfect timing!) Usually my friends and I go away for the weekend for each other’s bach’s. This bride decided to stay in Boston b/c she has so many out of towners to begin with. So, we are trying to pack the weekend with a bunch of fun activities. Here is our agenda:
Friday Night: Cocktail party and dinner/ BBQ at friend of the bride’s.
Private pilates class – 11:00 a.m. in fitness room of bride-to-be’s building
Lunch – (Chart House) 1:30p.m.
Pole dancing class – in fitness room of bride-to-be’s building 4:30-6:00p.m.
Bride’s Condo – 6:00p.m. for a few cocktails and games
Rocca’s Albany Room -8:30 dinner reservations (cash bar in private room)
Jacques Cabaret Drag Show – 10:30 show
Sounds fun, right?

We were in Boston for my sister’s b party a few years ago. We stayed in a hotel downtown. One night was crazier, the other night was more low-key. We did go to the Roxy for the Chippendales show, which was fun/funny and pretty tame. I think we must have gone to a bar (or two?) afterwards. The next morning we went to brunch at Abe and Louie’s on Boylston and walked around Newbury Street. We had an early dinner up in the North End. And I know we went for scorpion bowls. We also visited Dick’s – my sister’s hat said something about how her marriage was a city project to get hookers off the streets. We could have snuck in some salon/spa treatments, but for some reason we didn’t?? I think all the bars near Faneuil Hall are pretty good, I really like the Bell in Hand.

I’m so loving Erindesmar’s plan…that sounds awesome!
My perfect b-party would be a core-fusion class followed by massages at exhale, dinner at Bonfire (I sooo heart their steak frites), then karaoke at Limelight
I’m a huge karaoke fiend, and I can’t find a good karaoke bar where I live, (I’m used to kicker bars in Houston & Omaha-if I could do the b-party there I would). But I worked with some girls that loved Limelight, so it might be worth checking out.

humarockbride – i can’t believe i didn’t think of clerys! it’s like two blocks from my apt and definitely a fun place!
erindesmar – that does sound fun! i want to hear reports about the drag show!
happilywaiting – i have heard of limelight…anyone else been there and can say anything about it? karaoke could be a fun addition. but not if the people there take it too seriously (read: the bride to be is tone deaf)
Post # 13
Limelight is a blast! tone deaf are welcome : )
I will give you a full report on the drag show. . .

The drag show is fabulous! It is really a lot of fun!
Also, what about pole dancing? These girls do a great job!!!

I’ve been to two bachelorette parties at Jacques. Both were a blast! Just be sure to call ahead and reserve a table. The first time I went, we didnt know to do that and we got stuck standing in the back of the room.

I’m reviving this old thread – Boston ladies, what are you/did you do for your bachelorette party?
