Bachelorette Party in Scottsdale, AZ

At the beginning of this month I headed to Scottsdale, Arizona to celebrate my friend Kailagh's upcoming wedding. Bachelorette party vibes allll weekend!

We explored the city of Scottsdale and partook in several activities. If you are looking for some Scottsdale bachelorette party ideas, I got you!

We flew into Scottsdale from Milwaukee on Thursday morning. We started out with brunch at Montauk. Their menu consists of a good variety of brunch food AND an espresso martini tower. Starting a bachelorette party in Scottsdale with an espresso martini tower is a top 10 move. This place also has live music which made the experience even more fun.

After brunch, we explored downtown Scottsdale a bit. We stopped at an adorable wine bar called Wine Girl. They serve more than just wine which is great if your bachelorette party in Scottsdale includes a friend who doesn't drink wine! We had a few cocktails, took advantage of their Instagrammable space, and headed back to our Airbnb.

Our Scottsdale Airbnb was MADE for bachelorette parties, but honestly, there were several things that were either broken, empty, or not usable so I am not going to link it for you. ADORABLE, but frustrating to pay as much money as we did and not have it be a 10/10 experience.

For dinner, we had reservations at a lovely restaurant in Scottsdale named Cala. Our bachelorette party was in a small, private room which was really nice and secluded. We ended up sharing pizzas along with a few martinis, charcuterie boards, and of course... shots. Our meal was great and our waitress was so enthusiastic. I would recommend this spot for a bachelorette party dinner destination in Scottsdale.

We headed to a few bars in town after dinner - Hot Chick and Rockbar. Hot Chick is more of a party bar - loud music, games, etc. Rockbar is more of a dive bar. I enjoyed both for different reasons and they were within walking distance of Cala which was very convenient.

On Friday, we started out with a nice hike at "Double Butte Loop" - thanks to AllTrails for this one. It was about a 2 mile hike at Popago Park and the views were absolutely gorgeous. The hike was a 10-15 minute drive from the Airbnb and there were a few other bachelorette parties here with us.

Friday afternoon, we headed to a candle-making class at Light and Bark Candle Co. This was a great activity for a bachelorette party in Scottsdale! We got to choose our own candle design, create our own scents, and actually make the candle. The whole process didn't take very long, but the candles needed about 2 hours to set. While we were waiting, we walked around to experience a few more places.

We walked on over to AZ/88. Our bachelorette party ordered different martini creations - each one was delicious. We also grabbed a few snacks to hold us over until dinner time. The vibe in AZ/88 is very classy and modern but also alive, vibrant, and fun.

On Saturday, we started our morning with a barre class by Fitbach. I am not a huuuuge fan of barre, but it was nice to get some movement in before the day got started. Our instructor was great! Saturday was our pool day, so even though it was only 65 degrees outside, we hung out at the Airbnb to play drinking games and enjoy the water.

Saturday evening was our "Glitz and Glam" theme in Scottsdale where we all got dressed to the nines and headed out on the town. We started with dinner at Francine's. The food was delicious - it is a very classy place. Definitely pricey, so if you're bachin' on a budget, this one probably isn't for you. I ordered the black truffle mushroom pasta and it was PHENOMENAL.

After dinner we headed out to enjoy the Scottsdale club scene. We had a table reserved at 50 Shades of Rose where we began dancing the night away. The music was loud, the crowd was excited, and we were having a blast. The staff was really great with making Kailagh feel special - providing us with shots, celebratory champagne, and a giant sign wishing her congratulations.

We headed to a few more bars in downtown Scottsdale after 50 Shades but quite honestly, I am not a person that "goes clubbing" so my enthusiasm started to deteriorate. We ended up going back to Rockbar, the dive bar from Thursday, and ended our evening there.

On Sunday, we went to brunch again at Montauk, explored downtown Scottsdale shops, and headed to the airport. Overall the trip was eventful, lots of fun, and I think that Scottsdale is a great city for a bachelorette party.
