While many brides dream of a bachelorette party involving a luxe hotel, relaxing spa treatments, and amazing dinners, the reality is that many-both brides and bridesmaids have schedules and budgets that require staying closer to home or making it a one-day soiree. Just because you have to stay closer to home that doesn’t mean you have to limit the fun! Here is a list of places to stay, eat, and drink and some activities that are some of the best bachelorette party ideas in and around Moncton.
1. Book a Hotel with a Pool
Unpack those bags and head down to the hotel pool for a little bit of R&R and some time to catch up with the girls. Moncton hotels with a pool and a central location include:
–Delta Beausejour (great downtown location)
–Residence Inn Moncton (my personal favorite for Moncton. Location is superb and I love that all of the rooms are suites with a full kitchen and living room. Perfect for a bachelorette!)
–Crowne Plaza Moncton (modern hotel in a great location)
2. Reserve a Nice Dinner
Choose a nice restaurant that can accommodate a bachelorette group and make sure to call and reserve your table in advance. Check out a few of these fun restaurants that are in downtown Moncton:
–Gusto Italian Grill & Bar (upscale, chic, comfortable atmosphere with great prices)
–Tide & Boar Gastropub (award winning pub featuring a mouth-watering menu)
–The Keg Steakhouse (great steakhouse with plenty of tables to accommodate large groups)
–Taj Mahal (outstanding Indian food; vegetarian friendly)
–Windjammer (exceptional service and food)
–Osaka Hibachi (Japanese cuisine. Make sure to reserve a Teppan table which has you seated around a teppan grill, guaranteeing that every guest in your party can witness the skillful techniques of our master chefs slicing and dicing steak, chicken, and seafood delicacies).
After dinner you want to take the party elsewhere and grab a few drinks. Moncton offers a number of fun locations that work perfectly for your bachelorette. Moncton bars/pubs you can grab a drink (or two!):
–St. James’ Gate– (Stylish boutique hotel with a great place to grab some drinks. They have a nice patio when the weather is good which accommodates larger groups.)
–Tide and Boar ( Great place to get grab a few drinks. Make sure to try their delicious Sangria)
–The Old Triangle Irish Alehouse (Head here for a pint and some live music)
–Third Glass (Known as Moncton’s finest wine and martini bar)
4. Hit The Dance Floor
For most, a bachelorette party is not complete without hitting the dance floor. Check out these Moncton nightclubs:
–Rouge Premier Lounge (This is my go-to-spot when I’m in the city. It’s upscale yet casual and plays great dance music)
–Tide and Boar– This super popular gastropub turns into a must-visit if you want to have some drinks and hit the dance floor.)
5. Eat A Greasy Hangover Brunch
The best way to nurse a bachelorette hangover is with lots of greasy food. Time your arrival carefully because many of these brunch locations don’t take reservations and often have a line. Here are a few Moncton brunch spots that are often top choices and that can accommodate a big bachelorette group:
6. Do a Fun Activity
Not everyone wants to do the typical drinks and party at a club thing which I totally get. Here are a few more unique bachelorette party ideas for Moncton:
-Hire a photographer for the day to follow you around and capture fabulous images the bride will cherish long after her soiree.
