The Ultimate Palm Springs Bachelorette Party Guide

Bring on allll the mid-century-modern retro vibes, and pass us a cactus margarita, because there is nowhere like sunny, fab Palm Springs for a bachelorette party. Palm Springs strikes that ideal balance of sunny poolside relaxation with your girls, and a great nightlife and plenty of places to go out on the town. It’s full of fun, sun, and girl-time, Palm Springs is an IDEAL choice for it’s open-air dining, and huge airbnbs for bachelorettes. So let’s get to it. 


What to do with a bachelorette party in Palm Springs

Get brunch

Do brunch at Norma’s at the Parker Hotel, which is super chic, or Spencer’s (but make sure you reserve a table on the patio at Spencer’s and order bottles of champagne vs mimosas – they’ll end up costing $7 per mimosa instead of $15!)

Get dinner together

For the best group dinner restaurants in Palm Springs for a bachelorette, check out the adorable rooftop at Azucar one night – it’s a must! My favorite group dinner spot in Palm Springs. And then grab a table at The Tropicale the next – so cute!  Also the Farm or Blue Coyote Grill for lunch and dinner  – they have a pretty patio and fab margarita happy hour deals (WIN).

Dancing & drinks

Grab drinks at The Parker Hotel and Bootlegger Tiki, or check out the best dancing and drinks at Toucans Tiki Lounge – a drag bar. Or, if you prefer bottomless mimosas to bottle service for your drag show experience, Oscar’s Palm Springs turns up every weekend at Bitchiest Brunch.

Hang poolside!

My favorite thing to do in Palm Springs is relax poolside – after all, you came to the desert for an escape right? Hanging poolside with your girls is definitely going to be the highlight of your trip – just make sure to get some cute matching bikinis and cover ups!

Do some hiking!

Work off all those margaritas with some awesome hikes in Palm Springs – like Indian Canyon and Painted Canyon are awesome, but beware that it does get HOT out there.

Take the Palm Springs aerial tram

The tram’s 80-passenger cars travel along the beautiful cliffs of Chino Canyon from the Valley Station (elevation 2,643 ft.) to the Mountain Station (elevation 8,516 ft.) in approximately 10 minutes. At the top enjoy breathtaking views, and delicious cocktails!

Theme it up

We did a space cowboy theme for my bestie’s bachelorette in Palm Springs and it was so fun! Pick any theme and go out in it for one of the nights. We rented a party bus this night and it was so fun! 

Hit up a pool party

The Saguaro Palm Springs is known for their rowdy pool parties with a bachelorette!
