The South Congress Hotel

A super cute boutique hotel located in the chic South Congress district of Austin. If you’re a smaller bachelorette party, or looking for a chic hotel for your group, this is your spot. I love their hotel bar and patio any day of the week and their prime location makes for an ideal base for a fun weekend in Austin.

Capitol Villa

This SEVEN bedroom house is great for a big bachelorette party in Austin. It’s located 2 blocks away from the world-famous Franklins BBQ and within a 2 min Uber/Taxi from all of Sixth St/Rainey Street, so you won’t have to spend a ton of money on ubers.  The Neighborhood the house is in is super quiet and safe and the property is the only 3-story house in Central-East Austin.

Casa Cartel Austin

With a private pool, 5 bedrooms, and sleeping more than 16 people, this is ideal for a bachelorette party in Austin. Easy access to downtown, the river walk, and Congress ave.

Fun things to do in Austin for a Bachelorette Party:

A lake day on Lake Travis or Lake Austin

It’s impossible to beat a day on the Lake in the Austin heat. If you’re looking for Lake Austin boat rentals or Lake Travis Boat RentalsFloat On is the #1 rated boat rental company in Austin and through them you can rent a boat or pontoon for the day for $4-500 for 3 hours for your group (or add on additional hours if you want)! I’d highly recommend doing a boat day for any bachelorette party in Austin as it is sure to be a highlight of the weekend (especially in the summer, when it’s HOT and you’ll be craving a day on the water)

Pedalbiking bar hop with Hipside Peddler

Doing a pedalbike or ‘pedal pub‘ bar hop with Hipside Peddler was easily the highlight of the last bachelorette party weekend I did in Austin! It was around $40 per person for a 3 hour ride and we had SO much fun! Basically, you casually pedal on the bike, while dancing and screaming your heart out to music on the loudspeakers as the guide takes you to a few different bars throughout Austin. You can even BYOB on the bike for in-between bars. We went to a couple really cool breweries and bars and had SO much fun on the bike, while getting to see a ton of the city. PLUS you feel active and like you’re getting a workout while day-drinking!

Highly recommend Hipside Peddler for a daytime activity with any group going to Austin, but especially a bachelorette party!

Take an Austin brunch tour with Twisted Texas Food Tour

It’s no secret that brunch is Austin’s favorite meal of the day. And a brunch party with a live band taking you to three different brunch hot spots? Talk about the best way to start your day. The best part? It’s BYOB, so pack your mimosas and grab your girls – this Austin food tour is sure to be a highlight of your bachelorette squad’s weekend. Not into brunch? They also do a Brew Bus and a Live Music Experience tour that takes you to three different breweries/live music venues instead of restaurants.  

Paddle-boarding in Ladybird Lake

Ladybird Lake is a beautiful dammed-off stretch of the Colorado River that makes for an ideal day on the water right in central Austin. And, since no motorized boats are allowed on the lake, it’s ideal for paddleboarding and kayaking! If you’re with an active group or want to start your day off with a workout, I love going to Ladybird Lake.

Shopping on South Congress

Walking and shopping on South Congress is one of my favorite things to do in Austin. You can stop by instagram spots like the “I love you so much” wall and the Austin Motel, or pop into the many boutiques lining the street.

Bar hopping on Rainey Street

A great day or nighttime activity with any bachelorette party is just bar hopping down Rainey Street. Check out my recs for specific bars below under Where to Go Out in Austin!

Where to eat in Austin with a Bachelorette party:

Where to brunch:


Holy cow this place is good. But WARNING: This place does not take reservations, so you’ll need to get there early. But it’s so worth it. It’s huge and has a big patio so is perfect for groups, and the food is AH-MA-ZING. There’s also a BYO Michelada bar that makes me feel like I’m in Colombia. Huge win.


One of the best brunches and the cutest patio! I love going here with small or big groups!

Where to eat dinner with a big group in Austin:


This adorable Tex-Mex spot is ideal for bachelorette parties of all sizes. Definitely recommend calling ahead and booking a table on their beautiful patio! The mexican food is amazing, the margaritas are even better, and the prices are perfect so even after a few rounds of margs and queso, your bill won’t break the bank.

If you’re spending time by the pool or doing a boat day, definitely consider doing a cute matching bachelorette outfit like matching swimsuits or cute bachelorette party sarongs like these ones from Kenny Flowers! The cactus print sarong would be SO perfect for an Austin Bachelorette group – you can all do the same print , or get a different print for the bride! AND, Kenny is actually my fiancé – so if you use the code BACHPARTY, you can get 20% off of your whole order – making the sarongs less than $30 each!!
