We’ve seen a lot of bachelorette parties (like A LOT!), and once you’ve seen one Vegas, Nashville, or Palm Springs bachelorette, you’ve seen them all. Plus, you’re at that age where all of your friends are getting engaged, so at some point, you’ll end up doubling up on the same itinerary. Well, babe, it’s your turn now (yay, you’re engaged!), so why not take the opportunity to spice things up? What about Denver, CO??? If you’ve never been allow us to sing its praises for a bit, but once you and your crew arrive, you won’t need any more convincing. Here’s your guide to having the best bachelorette weekend in The Mile High City

hit up or stay at denver union station

Denver Union Station is an old-school train station. Think Anna Karenina or Harry Potter. It is a local landmark and has recently undergone a massive restoration and re-development that has made it a destination in its own right in the heart of downtown. 

The 1914 Beaux-Arts station is now a hub for transportation, dining, shopping, and entertainment. You can even stay there at The Crawford Hotel, a chic, mid-century-mod boutique hotel that will make every snapshot that much more aesthetically pleasing. Denver Union Station is also home to four new Colorado chef-owned restaurants so you can literally eat at a different restaurant every night without ever having to leave the station. 

Just looking to grab a quick bite? They have restaurants for that too and plenty of cool local shops where you can kill time between excursions and reservations. And don’t you worry, we know you came to have fun, so you HAVE to check out the Colorado beer hall while you’re there. Not only is Denver Union Station centrally located, there’s direct rail service between this historic landmark and Denver International Airport (DEN), so it makes travel super easy and convenient.

Right next door to Coors Field, Denver’s iconic stadium, is McGregor Square, the city's newest urban playground. Here you'll find the Milepost Zero food hall surrounding a 17,000-square-foot plaza that hosts year-round events like concerts, festivals, and movie nights on their stadium-sized LED screen. Catch a game at Tom’s Watch Bar, get a bite to eat at Carmine's, or browse the books at Tattered Cover Book Store. While you’re in the area head over to Dairy Block, a walkable micro-district in LoDo that contains Denver Milk Market, a diverse mix of culinary concepts, and the Alley, a laid-back place to have a drink.

A Forbes Four Star, AAA Four Diamond luxury landmark located in the heart of downtown Denver, The Brown Palace Hotel & Spa is a charter member of National Trust Historic Hotels of America. The hotel opened its doors on August 12, 1892, and hasn't closed them for a single moment since. The Brown Palace remains one of the city's crown jewels today, with its stunning stained glass atrium lobby, extravagant suites, and extraordinary dining venues. The hotel's original artesian spring well is located 720 feet beneath the lobby floor and still provides water to every faucet in the hotel. If you’re feelin’ bougie–this is the hotel for you! Even if you don’t stay there, you’ll definitely want to book some treatments at the spa.

The Denver Performing Arts Complex is the cultural hub of The Mile High City, encompassing opera, theater, stage, dance, and music. We recommend catching one of the stand-up comics in their star-studded lineup to start the night off on a high note. Because it’s such a popular destination, make sure you plan ahead and purchase your tickets before the day of the show–they do sell out!

blue bear

Blue Bear giant sculpture in denver Colorado

Even with a quick Google of Denver, we’re sure this 40-foot-tall sculptural landmark popped up on your radar. "I See What You Mean," better known as "The Big Blue Bear," on 14th and California streets, was created by the late Denver-based artist Lawrence Argent. This delightful sculpture peers curiously into the building, injecting a sense of fun and playfulness into the Colorado Convention Center. Take a photo or two of this only-in-Denver icon—he looks good from every angle. If you don’t post a pic with The Big Blue Bear, did you even go to Denver?
