Organizing a bachelorette party is a huge honor, but it can also be a lot of work. If it’s your turn to organize the big night for your best friend and bride-to-be, skip the clichés. It’s not about getting everyone blackout—but rather about bringing people together, making some memories, and marking a major transition in your friend’s life.
Check out these unique ways you can have a bachelorette party in Toronto!
#1 – Learn how to make your own cocktails at BareBones Bartending
Rather get behind the bar instead? Book a private cocktail making party with BareBones Bartending. Founded by two Toronto bartenders, this trendy bartending school offers a variety of private, customizable cocktail making events that can be suited specifically to your party. Host it at home or use their space at Queen and Roncesvalles.
#2 – Go on a luxury sail with Gone Sailing
Feel like hitting the high seas? You can with Gone Sailing at Toronto’s harborfront. Enjoy a three-hour bachelorette sail with phenomenal views of the Toronto skyline while sipping on signature cocktails and enjoying gourmet hors d’oeuvres.
#3 – Get out of your comfort zone with aerial silks
If you want to do something super outside the box, check out aerial silks in Toronto’s Port Lands. The Circus Fix is a big and bright circus school that offers aerial classes specifically for bachelorette parties. Go one better than the tried-and-true pole dancing class and learn how to be graceful while suspended from two brightly colored silks.
#4 – Cruise Toronto’s best cocktail bars
Cruise Toronto’s best late-night cocktail bars in style. Forget about planning a pub crawl of your own and join Toronto Food Tours on their awesome drink tour: VIP Late Night Cocktails and Secret Bars. This one doesn’t come cheap, but it’s an experience you’ll never forget.
#5 – Make something sweet at Le Dolci
Not all brides want to get rowdy (though any seasoned baker knows, things can get plenty rowdy in the kitchen). For those brides who are gentle at heart, there’s Le Dolci, a sweet baking studio in Toronto’s Trinity Bellwoods. Le Dolci offers some super sweet bachelorette party packages: choose between cupcake decorating or Parisian macaron making. Take home everything you make. (And then eat it immediately? We’ll never tell.)
#6 – Hit the poles at Brass Vixens
There’s a reason pole dancing bachelorette parties are super popular in Toronto. Check out Brass Vixens, where you can shake what your mama gave you—and also shimmy it up a pole. Brass Vixens’s fun-loving instructors can tailor a party to your needs, from pole dancing to burlesque, chair dancing, and more. Parties available in their downtown, Queen West, and Mississauga locations.
#7 – Escape from Toronto’s fanciest escape room
If the bride-to-be loves escape rooms, this is your chance to give her an experience she’ll never forget. Check out Escape Casa Loma, Toronto’s fanciest escape room. Set in Toronto’s infamous turn-of-the-century mansion, these escape games take you deep into dark chapters of Toronto’s history, from Prohibition to World War II and beyond.
#8 – Mix painting with wine at Paint Cabin
Looking to make bad art and good memories? This adorable art studio in Riverdale is for you. Book a private party where you and your girls will be led step-by-step in the creation of a featured work of art. Paint Cabin is a fully licensed café bar, so you all can get into the sauce, just like real artists.
#9 – Take the edge off on a Toronto brunch tour
If you want to take the edge off after a night on the town, check out this curated brunch tour of King and Queen West. Treat your friend to the ultimate Toronto brunch experience with stops for Toronto’s best chocolate chip cookie, culture-bending fusion brunch, and the best butter croissant on this side of the Atlantic.
#10 – Bust a move in a Beyography dance class
What better way to mark a milestone than with Bey? The Underground Dance Centre at Richmond and Spadina offers a steady stream of Beyography classes—join a regularly scheduled Beginner Beyonce Class or get in touch about creating a private event just for you and your friends and shake it like a single lady one last time.
#11 – Chill out with Toronto Island SUP
Who’s to say who pushed the bride in? Chill out with the ultimate Toronto treat: a SUP yoga class on Toronto Island. These classes take place in the Island’s Sunfish Cut, a popular lookout point with a spectacular view. You’ll be able to feel all your wedding-related worries washing away.
#12 – Go axe throwing at BATL
Does the bride fancy blowing off some steam before settling down into marital bliss? BATL Toronto West is for you. This axe throwing arena in Toronto’s Junction neighbourhood offers sweet axe throwing events for groups of six and up—and this location has a full bar and kitchen so you can make it a real party.
#13 – Mix painting with pleasure at Paint Lounge

You can either reserve the entire studio for your event or join a regularly scheduled art class. Best of all?
