Bachelorette Weekend: We need a hotel, spa, bars, and food ideas


I am planning a bachelorette party weekend for the end of February in Chicago. I was hoping to find a decently priced hotel in walking distance of some fun bars, restaurants (brunch is a must), spas and other fun activities.

We are not interested in male strippers or things of that nature...just a fun girls weekend where we can go out and enjoy good food and drinks.

We will have a group of 8 to 12 women who are in the 25 to 29 age range

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

You'll want to stay in River North.  It is close to a varying selection of nightlife.  Everything from happy hour bars to late night clubs.  There are plenty of hotels in the area, so its typically not too difficult to find a fair price.

Hubbard Street will have lots of good food spots for you to enjoy.  Just to name a few:

-Rockit Bar & Grill (Burger etc)

-Hub 51

-Bub City (BBQ/Country Bar)

-Sunda (sushi)

-Mercadito Chicago (Mexican)

Brunch varies but Lincoln Park (Illinois) has several bars with bottomless mimosa specials and will only be about a $10 cab from River North.  El Hefe in River North is a popular Sunday Funday spot but is very much an upbeat spot.

Family members stayed at the Residence Inn Chicago Downtown/River North while in town and it's near the best bar area in town. A number of bars and restaurants on Hubbard St.

I really love the Raffaello Hotel. Smaller, boutique hotel and just a block off of Michigan Avenue. I've stayed here for work and for fun and it's always amazing. I just checked the rates for the last weekend in February and the rates ranged from $135 - $160/night. 

I was just in Chicago a couple weeks ago and went to brunch at Siena Tavern and it was fantastic. Definitely worth it. The food was great and the service was top notch. I think you'll want to make reservations.

If you want to do something very fancy for drinks one night, check out Aviary. Really unique and innovative drinks... I think I had one that came in a vacuum sealed bag. It's not cheap but a really fun experience. You'll also want to make reservations and it could be a fun place to start the night or go right after dinner before going to a bar. This is in West Loop and there are tons of bars nearby.

My sister lives here so I'll ask her for other recommendations. Have a great trip!

Erin, great Chicago answer! I love Siena Tavern :) I wanted to let you know that we've helped you geo-tag the places that you mentioned in your answer so that they appear on a map next to it. You can also do this yourself in future answers by simply typing the @-symbol and then the name of the place as you're typing your answer. Check it out!
