Bachelorette Parties

Throwing a bachelorette party in Austin? A bachelorette party is both a celebration of the pending nuptials and a last hurrah for the bride to be before she says those vows, so if you're having the party yourself or throwing one for a friend or loved one, you want to master that careful mix of a thoughtful celebration and an out of control party! Getting it right means an unforgettable time. Maybe you'll make the bride to be blush by renting a hot Austin nightspot and hiring male dancers. Or perhaps you'll keep it simple and classy at a daytime affair complete with cupcakes, flowers, and gifts to help "shower" her with presents that she'll need to set up house with her new hubby.

You can plan your party to the tiniest detail, but whatever you do, the most thoughtful gift you can give both the beautiful bride to be and the party guests is transportation in and around the Austin area. When you rent a party bus from Blackhorn Buses, you're getting that perfect blend of playfulness and sophistication. Take a look at our buses and you'll see why. On the outside they're dark and classy, and on the inside they are packed with goodies that help you keep the party going in between destinations, such as LED lights, a fog machine, and a stereo that plays CDs or connects easily to your iPod or other MP3 player. You can truly craft the night to your own tastes and desires.

Those are the fun reasons you'll want to rent with Blackhorn Buses for your bachelorette party, but the reasons that most people ultimately choose Blackhorn Buses are safety and convenience. One of the most obvious perks is that you don't have to choose a designated driver--just leave the long haul to our professional drivers. All you need to do is enjoy the ride. There's no need to worry about finding a parking spot. And the top reason? You can get your entire group of friends together in parties of up to 26. Not traveling in separate vehicles means that the party begins as soon as you get picked up. What better way to begin the night?

If you choose Blackhorn Buses for your transportation, where will your bachelorette party destination be? Will you choose just one, or club hop all night long? In any case, to help you in your party planning, we've compiled a list of excellent lounges, restaurants, hotels, and other spaces that are available for private parties in Austin.

Hotel San Jose

The Hotel San Jose is located just a few blocks south of where the Colorado River runs through downtown Austin. While the name indicates something impossibly upscale, the stucco walls quickly reveal the urban charm of this bungalow-style hotel. They have a lovely space for bachelorette parties.

Just a few of the highlights of having a bachelorette party at Austin's Hotel San Jose are:

  • Comfortable outdoor seating in a spacious, beautiful courtyard.
  • The DJ spins sounds to keep you dancing all night long.
  • You'll enjoy delicious fruity cocktails in fine glass stemware.
  • The airy, wonderful atmosphere on warm Austin nights.

The only possible drawback is the fact that they serve only wine and beer, no liquor. But that follows the understated glamorous style of your surroundings, and may even add a touch of class to your private party.

1316 South Congress Avenue, Austin TX 78704 - Ph. 512-852-2350
