After being voted the #1 city 5 times in a row, it’s not hard to see why Charleston has become a top bachelorette party spot. Today, we’re sharing a Charleston Bachelorette Weekend guide. Forty eight hours of around the clock ideas for where to stay, eat, and hang.
For those looking for the modern or boutiquey places to stay- there are new places coming on the Charleston market all the time, but a few of our favorites are The Spectator Hotel (one of our past brides was the interior designer), the Dewberry, and the newly redesigned Restoration Hotel. If you want a more Southern traditional Charleston abode then The Charleston Place is a classic, and the Mills House has more than a few historic claims to fame.
And for a big group of girls all wanting to stay together of course there are AirBnB properties, but another great resource focusing on Charleston and the beaches is Luxury Simplified Retreats.
Figuring out where to dine in Charleston for an upcoming visit can be a full time planning job in and of itself, but, we’ve got you covered. Start with an early dinner of Lobster Rolls and Rose Friday evening at 167 Raw. Then, head back to the hotel for an early nightcap at your lobby or rooftop bar. You can’t miss Chez Nous – it’s truly one of my most favorite spots and such a special little place. Lunch at the large outside table would make for a lovely afternoon. Saturday night calls for Upper King- dinner at Darling Oyster Bar makes for an effortless first stop. Duck into any of the other hot spots around as you make your way to late night dancing at The Commodore. Cure the “Blew it Out Blues” over Sunday brunch at the Obstinate Daughter on Sullivan’s Island.
Charleston is wonderful on foot of course, but bikes can get you farther into the upper and lower areas of town (helpful for getting you to lunch at Chez Nous). Affordabike offers rentals and deliveries throughout downtown. If you are staying at the Spectator or the Restoration, inquire about the bikes they have in house. King Street is known for it’s shopping, from national and worldwide chains, to local boutiques. Hampden Clothing is a must hit, as well as Finicky Filly across the street. Since, you’ll be on Sullivan’s for brunch, plan on staying for the afternoon and enjoy the beach!
