Wedding season is right around the corner, and that means it's time to get planning your amazing bachelorette party.
There are plenty of traditional options for bachelorettes in Denver. You have your pick of bars to go to or clubs where you can dance the night away.
But what about a more unique way to mark the momentous occasion with your best girlfriends?
We've put together our favorite unique bachelorette party ideas for Denver brides:
1. Sip and Craft at Upstairs Circus
Does your group like to DIY? Conveniently located right in the heart of the city, you can sip cocktails while you craft at Upstairs Circus.
The best part? You don't all have to choose the same project. Upstairs Circus lets you choose from one of over 30 craft projects from handmade jewelry to wall art. For larger groups, we recommend making a reservation.
2. Book a Private Cocktails Tour
If your group likes craft cocktails, consider booking a private cocktails tour through downtown Denver.
You'll visit 4 of the city's top bars to try 5 different cocktails in this roving happy hour adventure. Each cocktail is paired with delicious bites.
Your private tour guide will lead the way as you walk from bar to bar, learning about the city's thriving food and cocktails scene along the way.
3. Try Your Hand at Axe Throwing
The adventurous bride really looking to do something different should check out Bad Axe Throwing just north of Denver's downtown. This place offers "urban axe throwing" and caters to lots of private parties like bachelorettes. For just $40/person, your group can learn how to launch axes towards wall targets and master the art of the axe throw through fun games and tournaments. Add to the fun by bringing your own drinks and snacks into their facility. You won't want to miss this unique and different bachelorette option!
4. Put Your Heads Together at an Escape Room
Don't feel like the traditional dinner, drinks and dancing option? If you like solving problems, this might be the perfect bachelorette option for you.
At Solutions Lounge, you and your squad will be locked in a room together for 60 minutes. You'll have to find clues and solve puzzles to get out. Choose from rooms like a lab with a science experiment gone wrong to an underwater submarine under pressure.
The best part? This escape room features a full bar and restaurant, so afterward relax with some drinks and dinner.
5. Catch a Burlesque Show
Theater fans should head over to the Clocktower Cabaret Theater located inside the unique and historic Daniel and Fisher Clocktower in downtown Denver. Once the tallest structure west of Chicago, this historic site is now home to a great cabaret bar nestled in their basement.
Shows range in theme from music to comedy, burlesque to circus.
Head over to their bar for a delicious cocktail, or order bites while you enjoy the show.
