  • Dinner at Shokitini
    • Once the girls are dressed up and ready for the night, head to Shokitini Japanese Restaurant for some amazing sushi rolls and to end the night singing your favorite songs with your favorite people in one of their karaoke lounges. 
  • My recommendation: The Red & Black roll is so good! 



  • Breakfast at Mama’s Boy 
    • There is no better way to start your morning than at Mama’s Boy. This must-see spot has some of the best and most popular breakfast food in Athens and is sure to be a crowd favorite. 
  • My recommendation: The Georgia Peach French Toast or the Chocolate Cake for Breakfast!

    • The Blonde Beauty Bar is the perfect local place to take your girls to get a fresh and fun blowout for the day. Treat yourself and your bridesmaids to a new ‘do so you feel ready to take on the day.


  • Lunch at Trappeze Pub
    • Head to downtown Athens to dine at Trappeze Pub, a casual gastropub known for its spectacular menu. With a large variety of beers, ciders and meads on tap and with a killer lineup of delicious sandwiches and burgers, everyone in your crowd is sure to find something they love here.

  • Drinks & Appetizers at Hybar
    • This rooftop bar located above the Hyatt Place Hotel has some of the best 360-degree views of Athens. Head up here with your squad for some drinks, appetizers and sunset pictures to kick off your evening the right way. 
  • My recommendation: The Trio Dip or the Crawfish Toast! 


  • Dinner at Pauley’s Crepe Bar
    • For dinner, Pauley’s Crepe Bar is one of my personal favorite Athens spots to go with friends. The drinks, crepes, and overall energy in this restaurant is the perfect environment to start the party and keep it going throughout the night. 
  • My recommendation: The Chicken Caesar Crepe and Bananas Foster Crepe are simply divine!

  • Brunch at The Cafe on Lumpkin
    • Located in the heart of the Five Points area, dining at this cozy and quaint restaurant is the perfect way to relax and unwind on a Sunday morning while you recap the previous night. 
  • My recommendation: The Breakfast Burrito is my absolute favorite! 


  • Explore the Botanical Gardens
    • As one last hoorah before your bachelorette weekend comes to a close, explore The State Botanical Garden of Georgia to discover some beautiful florals and peaceful walking paths right here in Athens.
