Lodging / Napa

Napa River Inn

Add a dash of Victorian-era charm to your bachelorette outing at this boutique hotel overlooking the Napa River. Each room in this 1901-built structure beams with turn-of-the-century elegance, boasting massive plush beds, fireplaces, and claw-footed tubs. Indulge with breakfast in bed delivered to your room, fresh from beloved Napa Valley bakery Sweetie’s Pies.

Insider Tip

If there are any dogs with your party, Napa River Inn not only allows pooches, they welcome furry friends with special dishes and embroidered pet blankets.

Andaz Napa

This relaxing respite, located in the heart of downtown Napa, is just a few short steps from the restaurant renaissance and boutique-shopping boom currently underway in the city–in other words, there’s plenty to see and do during a night out (whatever you decide, spend a day relaxing with the hotel’s in-room spa services to prep and pamper beforehand). For a less raucous evening, sit fireside at the Mercantile Terrace, just outside the Andaz Napa Hotel. Don’t fear: there’s still a full bar.

Insider Tip

Guests can rent e-bikes at the front desk to cruise around the downtown area, so pedaling is optional if you aren’t interested in working up a sweat.

SpringHill Suites Napa Valley

Booking a suite at this Marriott property means you’ll be only a few miles from several popular wineries–there’s nothing like kicking off bachelorette festivities with a tasting or two. Highly rated by guests, SpringHill Suites Napa Valley is large and diverse enough to accommodate parties of most sizes and budgets, and perks like a heated outdoor swimming pool will give your group a great setting in which to relax with a bottle or two while you plot your next moves.

Insider Tip

The starting point of Napa Valley Wine Train is less than 10 miles away: it’s an ideal way for a group to sip through Napa County.

Restaurants / Napa

Angele Restaurant & Bar

“Former boathouse” may not scream bachelorette party, but this charming eatery provides tons of natural light, a charmingly rustic dining room, and unparalleled riverfront views. Angele Restaurant and Bar serves meticulously plated French classics like the croque monsieur or salad Lyonnaise. Bright for lunch and sultry for dinner, the bar is serious about classic cocktails that are prepared impeccably.

Insider Tip

The surrounding area is the shopping jackpot—plan your future home, and pick up some posh housewares next door at the Napa General Store.

Restaurants / Napa

Celadon

Dressed in exposed brick, the upscale dining room at Celadon is not afraid to experiment with flavors. Inspiration comes from every corner of the globe—a meal could include handmade crab cakes, chicken satay, and a crème brulee finish. The whole restaurant is electrified with a fun vibe every evening with low lighting, a menu dictated by the seasons, and a deep wine list that’s loaded with local options.

Insider Tip

The patio, complete with fireplace, is an ideal spot for groups after a long day of winery hopping.

Things To Do / Yountville

Napa Valley Aloft Balloon Rides

Go above and beyond for your bachelorette party: you deserve it. Take the girls high over the breathtaking scenery in a colorful hot air balloon, provided by Napa Valley Aloft–a once-in-a-lifetime experience like this one may very well be the most memorable part of the trip (aside from the wedding, of course).

Insider Tip

It’s best to make your reservations two weeks in advance, at least. If you make a decision last minute though, Napa Valley Aloft is great at trying to get people into the sky.

Things To Do / Napa

Classic Convertible Wine Tours

For a one-of-a-kind Napa Valley bachelorette party, pack a scarf for your hair and order up a classy ride for your winery tour from Classic Convertible Wine Tours. With a friendly driver zipping you, your group will be free to taste all the wine they want. Each can accommodate large groups, as extra passenger-hauling compartments can be added, like an extendable table. Make sure to ask if you’re planning a large group.

Insider Tip

The cars may be classics, but they still pack (somewhat) modern technology–each is retrofitted with a CD player, so burn a wine tasting playlist before heading out.
