It’s no secret that The Knot editors love weddings—but we also happen to be bachelorette party aficionados as well. Since we’ve done our fair share of traveling as bridesmaids and maids of honor, we put together our own city guide of some of the best spots we’ve been for bachelorette parties, plus where to stay and eat, and what to do while you’re there. Cheers!

What to eat: Fill up on handmade pasta and artisanal pizza at Nellcote, or head over to The Hampton Social in River North for seafood and frosé (their recipe calls for Tito’s vodka and peach pureé, so you’ve been warned). Summer House is an airy, Instagrammable spot perfect for brunch (grab one of its custom Rice Krispie treats on your way out the door), and Top Chef winner Stephanie Izard’s Little Goat Diner is necessary for staving off that frosé-induced hangover.
