Thankfully I am a local girl here and can give you the low down on all things budget friendly in our great city. We hope that our suggestions help your bride tribe out as you plan for your Nashville bachelorette party weekend on a budget.

Where to stay for your Nashville bachelorette party on a budget

If you’re looking to stay in Nashville and save some money, avoid the high prices of downtown Nashville hotels and opt for an adorable AirBNB in a cute neighborhood. You can rent an entire house in East Nashville, Donelson, or 12 South for the cost of a small hotel room! All of these neighborhoods are walkable, and only a short drive to the heart of downtown.

Check out our post about the most walkable neighborhoods in Nashville to give you some good ideas on other neighborhoods besides the downtown area that you might want to stay in.

Bachelorette Activities in Nashville for the Nash Bash on a Budget

If you like the outdoors, Nashville has some amazing parks that are free to the public!

Centennial Park is downtown in Nashville’s West End. It has walking and biking trails and a full scale replica of the Parthenon in Athens, Greece (yes, you did just read that correctly). It’s got beautiful flower gardens, so if you’re visiting in the warmer months, don’t miss the opportunity to take some adorable photos in your flower crowns from a flower crown workshop with us in front of some Tennessee wildflowers!

Bicentennial Mall is located near central downtown and is adjacent to the Nashville Farmer’s Market (free to window shop!) and the Tennessee State Museum (also free!). We thought we would tell you a bit about the Nashville Farmer's Market because it is not your typical farmers market that you might be used to. It is an actual space that is year round and houses farmers, artisans, food stalls, etc. that you can shop at or just browse. We love hitting up places like this in any city that we visit. Always fun to see local businesses in a setting like this. This would be a perfect place to stop at to just browse or grab breakfast or lunch in an affordable setting with good food choices. Check out the Nashville Farmer's Market Instagram here. You can also read up on some of the food vendors at the farmers market here.

Bicentennial Mall has a full walkable timeline of the state’s history, as well as many cool fountains and monuments that make super cool group photo opportunities! We know bachelorette parties and girls weekend groups love a group photo opp. So get your group together and go on some walks around downtown Nashville without spending tons of money, HONEY!

Walk of Fame Park is located in downtown Nashville across from the Country Music Hall of Fame. Take your picture with the stars of some of music’s most well known artists, like Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, and Dolly Parton!

If live music is more your scene, almost all of the bars on Broadway are free if you want to walk in, listen, and dance the night or day away. Most of the popular honky tonks like Robert’s Western World and Rippy’s don’t have a cover, and once you are inside, buying drinks is totally optional! Better yet, wear your best matching bachelorette party outfits and let some of the other honky tonk patrons buy your drinks for you. You will find nice people bopping around the honky tonk area and it is so fun to just bop into some of these places- sing and dance to the music then bop onto the next one.

Top Local Tips for a bachelorette party in Nashville 

When you’re planning your Nashville Bachelorette Party, always check for upcoming festivals that we might be having.

There are free festivals year-round in Music City, and almost all of them would make for a great Nash Bach activity. The two largest are CMA Fest and Live on the Green.

  • CMA Fest is in June and charges admission for the nighttime concerts, but during the day there is a free street festival with awesome music!
  • Live on the Green happens every Thursday night in August and culminates with a blowout Labor Day Weekend festival. No tickets are required and all the music is free! You could spend your entire bachelorette party hopping around a festival in your matching flower crowns and go home happy.

Don’t be afraid to just walk around some neighborhoods! Some of the best (free!) entertainment can be found window shopping and people watching. We suggest these Nashville neighborhoods for bopping around in - just walk around and take in the sites. Head into some stores, restaurants or bars - or just take in the sights. 

  • East Nashville
  • 12 South
  • The Nations
  • The Gulch
  • The West End.


Nashville is a college city, so if you still have a student ID, don’t forget it! A lot of the fun museums and attractions (like the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Frist Art Museum) have a pretty sizable student discount if you show them your college ID card.

The Top Nashville Country Music Star Owned Bars for Your Nashville Bachelorette Party Weekend Plans

Posted by Alyssa McGuire on Jan 24, 2019 11:25:47 AM

No Bachelorette Bash in Nashville is complete without going out one night (or multiple nights) to Broadway.

nashville bachelorette party ideas -1

The most iconic street in our city is home to the best honky tonks and music bars in the world. What you might not know is that the biggest stars in country music have started to create their own additions to the Broadway skyline with namesake entertainment meccas for you ladies to visit while on your Nashville bachelorette party weekend. These bars aren’t just a place to get a drink - they are a true Nashville experience that you have to make sure you make a part of your Nashville weekend plans. Part Honky Tonk, part dance party, and part restaurant, you can’t go wrong with adding any or all of these hot spots to your NashBash itinerary!

nashville honky tonks for your nashville bachelorette party weekend

So let's get started, ladies. We have our line up of the best Nashville Bars that are owned by country music stars for you to check out on your Nashville bachelorette party.

FGL House

Best for: Dancing with Your Girls

One of the original country music singer venues in Nashville, the boys from Florida Georgia Line put their heart and soul into creating a true music lover’s atmosphere. While not technically on Broadway, this bar is just a few steps off the main drag at the base of the famous Pedestrian Bridge. Being just off Broadway means that the crowds are more manageable, making FGL House the perfect place to have some drinks and dance the night away with your Nashville bachelorette babes. They have a super cool rooftop too in case that is your thang.

You can check out FGL House Insta here.

Luke Bryan’s 32 Bridge

Best for: Unique Food Options

Luke Bryan’s addition to the Broadway bar scene has some of the most unique food options of the country crooners. The highlight? The rooftop sushi bar where you can enjoy your California rolls while taking in the skyline views. Offerings inside the restaurant include specialty burgers (like salmon and elk) and beer infused mac and cheese.

You can check out Luke Bryan's 32 Bridge Insta here.

Ole Red

Best for: Brunching

Ole Red Nashville is Blake Shelton’s second Ole Red location, and if the food is this good here, I can’t imagine what will happen when the third location opens later this year! While most of Broadway has solid brunch options, the quality of the food at Ole Red is something to behold. Treat your Nashville bachelorette party to a Nashtastic brunch on Saturdays or Sundays. (And if you’re in the mood for dessert, the Lucky Charms Sundae is a thing of beauty.)

You can check out Ole Red's Insta here.

Kid Rock’s Big Ass Honky Tonk Rock & Roll Steakhouse

Best for: Getting Wild

The name says it all - come here and you’ll be rocked, rolled, and honky tonked. Kid Rock’s partnership with the same guys who own some of the most iconic Nashville honky tonks (Tootsie’s and Honky Tonk Central) resulted in the newest addition to Broadway. This is the most traditional style honky tonk of the country artist bars, with constant live music from Music City’s most talented musicians, free flowing drinks, and huge windows that roll open to let in the river breeze.

Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row

Best for: Rooftop Views

Nearly every new addition to Broadway comes with a rooftop view, but Dierks Bentley made sure that Whiskey Row had one of the best. This rooftop sits up just a bit higher than some of its neighbors, making it the ideal place to people watch the busy streets down below. And, true to its name, the whiskey here really can’t be beat - don’t forget to try some of Tennessee’s finest while you’re there!

Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar

Best for: The Sports Loving Ladies

Jason Aldean really focused on curating the ultimate casual experience with his Kitchen + Rooftop Bar. The food is great, the music is great, and the drinks are great, but what really stands out about Jason Aldean’s is how down home and familiar it all feels. You walk in the front door and you feel like you’re in the coolest bar from your hometown. If you’re in town during a Nashville Predators game or are a fan of college football, Jason Aldean’s is the place to be! There are two HUGE video walls for your sports viewing pleasure (and they show the coolest new music videos when there isn’t a game on!).
