So grab yourself a glass of wine and read up to make sure your Milwaukee bachelorette party is everything you’ve ever wanted and so much more!


Step 1: Hit up Tranquil Escape Day Spa

Make Tranquil Escape Day Spa stop number one for your bachelorette party weekend. What better way to kick off the festivities than with a Stress-Melting Escape package? This 2.5-hour package includes a 60 minute facial, 60-minute massage, and a manicure. You’ll leave here feeling rejuvenated and prepared to tackle whatever the bachelorette party throws at you.


Step 2: Check into your room at The Iron Horse Hotel

Don’t skimp on the hotel for the bachelorette party – you need a good home base for the weekend, and you’re going to want to be centrally located. Look no further than The Iron Horse Hotel in downtown Milwaukee. The Iron Horse is the transformation of a 100-year-old warehouse into a one-of-a-kind Milwaukee hotel that delivers an authentic Milwaukee experience.

Step 3: Where to Eat Downtown Milwaukee

Maybe it’s just us, but this might be the most important part of the bachelorette party. You need sustenance to keep you rolling through the bachelorette weekend, but more than likely, you don’t eat food just for the sustenance – so follow this list to hit a few of our favorite restaurants!

Harbor House

Seafood dining right on Lake Michigan in downtown Milwaukee. This isn’t the cheapest spot in Milwaukee, but it’s definitely one of the best! Excellent atmosphere and great seafood make the Harbour House a must stop when you’re in town. Treat the Bride-to-be with a fancy seafood dinner that she’ll never forget.

Bel Air Cantina

Who doesn’t like tacos? Hopefully not anyone in your party.  If you’re in Milwaukee on a Tuesday or Thursday – you can get $2 dine in tacos and $2 Mystery Tequila Shots from Bel Air Cantina. No matter the day, swing by, eat some tacos and have a margarita to kickoff the evening bachelorette party festivities.

Transfer Pizzeria Cafe

Great pizzas, wine, beer, and cocktails make Transfer Pizzeria Milwaukee’s #1 pizza joint. Be sure to stop by this hip, casual restaurant for some pizza, drinks, and live music. The Garlic Pizza is a huge hit – give it a go.

Step 4: Where to Drink Downtown Milwaukee

If you’re using google maps as you go through this list you’re probably noticing a theme – everything we’ve listed is in downtown Milwaukee. That’s because it’s truly the place to be! Lots of great activities, great food, and most importantly – great places to drink. Catch the next list to see some of our favorite bars, breweries, and distilleries.

Boone & Crockett

Boone & Crockett is a Milwaukee favorite and they recently moved into the Cooperage Building in Walkers Point – which is also home to Milwaukee Pedal and Paddle Tavern. Boone & Crockett serves up some amazing specialty cocktails and you can snag a specialty cocktail for just $5 between 5 and 7. Have we mentioned that they also have a taco truck (Taco Moto) that hangs around outside serving up amazing tacos while you sip your cocktails

Central Standard Craft Distillery

Central Standard is one of Milwaukee’s distilleries, and our personal favorite! Cherry Vodka, Chocolate flavored Brandy, Coffee Vodka, Rye Whiskey, Scotch Style Whiskey, Gin, Bourbon Whiskey, Rye Vodka, and Washington Rye are what they’re whipping up, and we recommend each and every one of them. Join us on a tour and we’ll take a stop here! Then, you can come back later for a tour of the distillery – something we definitely recommend if you can make the time for it!

MobCraft Tap Room

MobCraft whips up crowd-sourced beers. Here’s how it works: you submit the idea you have for a beer, it goes up for a vote from the public, the one with the most pre-orders gets made, and then you can try the beer that you schemed up (if you’re one of the luck winners)! Lucky for us – the MobCraft taproom serves up their crowdsourced beers, their flagship beers, and a variety of taproom only beers! The taproom boasts views of the brewhouse, the wild & sour room as well as foosball, ping pong, live music, outdoor seating and much more!

Step 5: What To Do In Downtown Milwaukee

The Brewers

Head to Miller Park to catch a Brewers game. It’s not quite in downtown Milwaukee, but a short uber will get you right to the stadium. Whether you’re a baseball fan or not, a night at Miller Park is a pretty good way to spend an evening eating ballpark food and chasing it with cold beers.

Milwaukee Pedal Tavern and Milwaukee Paddle Tavern

Of course, we’re going to throw this one in there, but we truly do believe we are a necessity when it comes to Bachelorette Parties in Milwaukee. Whether you want a tour of downtown Milwaukee and all of the best bars, breweries, and distilleries or if you want a more laid back tour of the Milwaukee River – we are the go to choice. Grab some white claws, and join us for an afternoon or evening booze cruise of the Milwaukee area.

Milwaukee Comedy Cafe

Starting the night with a good laugh is always a good way to start a night. Have some drinks, take in some performances, and then head out for the night. This is guaranteed to be one of the most memorable experiences from the bachelorette party if you choose to indulge.

As you can see there’s a ton to do in downtown Milwaukee – maybe you should extend that bachelorette party by a few days or more!
