Drag yourself out of the hotel with the Queens
Throughout Nashville, the Drag community is vast, expansive and a truly unique experience to encounter when attending a show, or even a lunch event. When you are dressed up and ready to show out with the most fierce and fabulous performers that Nashville has to offer, you plan for a sit down with these queens. If laugher is the best medicine, we could consider all of these performers to be doctors as well.
Tributes to the classic pop icons you’re obsessed with, more laughs than you can handle and a fantastic meal, Illusions Drag Show is legendary. From Thursday – Sunday, you will want to plan a visit to BigShotz on 2nd ave for either breakfast or lunch with a cast of delightful characters.
Only available on Saturday and Sunday every week, make your way over to Bowies on 3rd ave to see the Music City Dolls performance of a lifetime. Proud of being the first dueling Drag show in all of Nashville, this is the production that you get to be a part of. You might even win the duel and leave with a prize of your own. For those who want to be involved in the show directly, the Dueling Drag Show will pull members of your group on stage before you even realize what’s going on.
Sunday brunch in the middle of downtown Nashville is already a winning idea, only an insane person is going to turn down a great brunch session with friends. The only way to make an already flawless choice that much more enticing would be by adding the rotating cast of Nashville based Drag queens as hosts for the event. Maybe you should go ahead and book your stay at the Bobby Hotel so you won’t have the chance to miss out on the Union Tavern Sunday Drag Lunch that goes down every week.
Obsess over some hot guys
Traditional media has regularly featured a female stripper being hired as a gift to husbands-to-be during their bachelor parties, sort of one last hurrah before taking on the ball and chain. Now, in the post Magic Mike era, there are more than enough male stripper fantasies being lived out and we can’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate getting married with your girls. Bring your tips and get ready to have the time of your life, maybe even get your future mother in law to crack a smile or two.
One of the nation’s largest male revue shows, Unleashed in Nashville brings the heat and fulfills the fantasy of all attendees. Bachelorette parties who want to really take advantage of their bride’s last night as a “free woman” will flock to this two hour show ready to party hard. Uniforms, costumes and some of the hottest guys you’ll find in Nashville are waiting to give you the night of a lifetime.
Cowboy burlesque seems like one of those combinations that seems like it could only happen in a dream, right? Well, Music City Gents makes all of your dreams come true, even including an extra 10% off of a Party Pontoon ride with the purchase of your party’s tickets. Ask about the discounts that come with their bachelorette party package, the Music City Gents go above and beyond to take care of their bridal parties.
Take your fun and make it mobile
When you don’t want to have to walk, or navigate traffic through downtown Nashville’s more regularly inhabited areas, you don’t have to try hard to find a company that will take you on an epic ride. Choose from a number of safe, fun and exciting party ride options and let your designated driver take on the task of dealing with downtown Nashville traffic.
Two hours long and featuring a variety of tour packages, Honky Tonk Party Express Bus is a safe, dramatic and outlandish way to travel around Nashville for a day or evening.

You might end up with a tractor driver that will even pull out their guitar to keep the music going. No matter who your host is, the fun won’t stop from the moment you step up on to this giant ride.
Though any of Nashville’s riding tours are worthy of choice for your bachelorette party, we are slightly partial to taking a ride with Nashville Bar Bike.

Spa day with the girls
Nashville might be known for having “party” reputation but that does not mean we don’t know how to relax. Spend your morning or afternoon at a number of spas and resorts right here in the city.
