"Just the Girls" Bachelorette Party Pub Crawl

Not every bachelorette wants to get so drunk she can’t stand up at the end of the night. If your bride-to-be fits this description, consider a bachelorette party that’s more focused on bonding time with the girls.


This itinerary focuses specifically on entertainment that centers around Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood for easy transportation - and maximum fun!



Aroma Workshop

2050 N Halsted


Start the night off early afternoon with a trip to Aroma Workshop. Each lady will have the opportunity to create her own signature scent, based on a combination of different available fragrances and essential oils. You’ll each leave with a ready-to-use perfume, but they’ll store your scent information if you want to come back and use it in an assortment of bath products. Make sure to call ahead to set an appointment!


Cafe Baba Reeba

2024 N Halsted


Cafe Baba Reeba is on the same block as Aroma Workshop, and makes for a perfect dinner option post-scent creation. This Spanish tapas restaurant is one of Lettuce Entertain You’s most popular establishments, which is saying something (since all of their restaurants are beloved by Chicagoans and tourists alike). Small plates are perfect for a group, and they have not one, but several different types of sangria pitchers to share.


The Second City

1616 N Wells St


Chicago is famous for its improv scene. If you and your ladies haven’t yet been to a show at The Second City, there’s no better time than the present. Even if you have, they have a diverse enough set of programming that you’re sure to find something you haven’t yet seen. Before the show, head over to their new 1959 Kitchen & Bar for a drink. The retro vibe here will add a fun backdrop to your pictures from the night!


Old Town Ale House

219 W North Ave


If you and the ladies decide to rally, there are plenty of options in nearby Old Town. Old Town Ale House is small, but cozy. It’ll provide the perfect vibe for drinking after the night’s main entertainment.


D.O.C Wine Bar

2602 N Clark


If you’d rather end the night with a nice glass of wine and a slightly quieter environment, D.O.C Wine Bar is just a short ride back to Lakeview from The Second City. The ambience is dark and intimate, perfect for a classy end to the night with your ladies.
