Napa Bachelorette party itinerary
The perfect place to stay for a Napa Bachelorette
Start by checking in to Archer Hotel in downtown Napa where you’ll be perfectly situated for all your Bachelorette party activities. With a rooftop bar and wading pool, in addition to Archer Palmer Steak that serves breakfast and locally-roasted coffee, you have everything you want at the hotel. Archer is also conveniently located in downtown Napa near all the best restaurants and tasting rooms. Nearby, there are plenty of places to go on riverside walks, enjoy live music, and more.
Wine tasting time, of course
If you’re planning a Napa Bachelorette party, you’re likely wanting to taste a few of Napa’s finest varietals. Unless you have a designated driver, you can hire a car or limo service to take you around to different wineries for the day.
Stag’s Leap offers an amazing selection of reds and whites and it’s the perfect place to start your day with a tour and tasting. Since you’re celebrating, it’s worth taking a stop at Mumm, famous for their bubbly. Be sure to make a reservation for your group to enjoy flights of sparkling wine on their outdoor patio with incredible vineyards views.
Just because it’s lunchtime, you don’t have to stop sipping. Head to V. Sattui, a laidback tasting room with an Artisan Deli, marketplace, and outdoor picnic tables. We love lunch stops at V. Sattui because you still get to sample amazing wines while snacking on their homemade charcuterie, sandwiches, and delicious desserts.
To finish off the day, head to Napa Cellars where you can relax even more with outdoor lawn games like bocce ball and cornhole while you finish off your tastings.
Napa Bachelorette party must-eat restaurants
Within a 10-minute walk from the Archer, you’ll find a wide variety of dining options for whatever the bachelorette party is in the mood for. Craving sushi? Make sure you visit Morimoto’s, one of the famous Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s restaurants where you have to try the Buri Bop and Rock Shrimp Tempura.
If you’re more in the mood for pizza, you’ll love the authentic, thin-crust options at Azzurro Pizzeria e Enoteca. In addition to pizza and pasta, you can order a “Manciata” which is all the doughy goodness of a pizza but instead of tomato sauce and cheese, it’s topped with one of 4 salad options. Fold it and eat it like a sandwich!
For a more laidback option, head to family-owned and operated Taqueria Rosita and indulge in some classic California-Mexican burritos.
Take a girls’ spa day
Set aside a day on your Napa Bachelorette party trip for some rest and relaxation.
The nutrient-rich soils in the valley are good for more than just growing world-renowned grapes. Head to the tippy-top of the valley to reach the quaint – albeit high-end – town of Calistoga, where there are numerous options for spa experiences. But it’s the mudbaths you definitely can’t pass up.
Treat the bride to a tranquil spa day at Indian Springs Resort & Spa. Their iconic mud bath ritual incorporates mineral water and pure volcanic ash from their own geysers and will leave you feeling pampered to your core.
Hot air balloon rides
Get the best view of Napa while soaring high above the valley in a hot air balloon. Wake up early and head out with companies like Napa Valley Balloons who offer private group trips. You’ll leave just after dawn to be rewarded with spectacular views over the rows of grapevines at sunrise.
