San Diego brides are spoiled with celebratory hotspots to hit up during their bachelorette weekend. Here, we take the guesswork out of when and where to get down with your girls around town (sash and party favors not included).
Out-of-towners have landed and your local girlfriends have punched the time clock. Kick off the weekend with a cocktail tasting at East Villages’s uber mod, woman-owned distillery and tasting room, You & Yours Distilling Co. (pictured) Vodka and gin is their forte, shaken or stirred in anything from classic gimlets to adventurous smoked-ice martinis. Loop in a 45-minute distillery tour or book a more intimate private cocktail class. There are even souvenirs—bottles to purchase for keeps. Cheers to that!
A beauty boost is the best start for your jam-packed Saturday. Look no further than Koi Wellbeing for customizable IV therapy and nutrient injections. Packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, the therapies are meant to rehydrate and boost your energy and immune system, leaving you feeling youthful, fresh, and confident.
Tour San Diego’s craft-beer industry one sip at a time. Brewery Tours of San Diego has mastered pit stops for pours in America’s Finest City. Jump on a public tour with other beer enthusiasts or book a private tour for a more customized experience. The family-owned company has partnerships with nearly 40 breweries and distilleries to choose from. Bottoms up!
Top off your craft-beer adventure with a pour or two more at Mission Brewery. The spacious industrial warehouse in East Village’s old brick Wonderbread factory has views of the San Diego Central Library and Petco Park. Insta-worthy photo ops aside, consider another hour-long tour with five free tasters, or post up at a table for bites from the in-house kitchen—or bring your own eats from outside.
Bring your appetite to Old Town’s iconic Casa Guadalajara (pictured). Outfitted with a cascade of colorful fountains, lush patios, romantic dining rooms, and lively mariachi music, the Mexican restaurant includes a full-service bar offering more than 50 tequilas, making it a perfect place to pre-game for an evening out. You can choose to dine inside or outdoors. Fish tacos and anything with carne asade are crowd favorites, and don’t pass up the Cadillac or La Natural margaritas. Salud!
The fun isn’t over, but it’s definitely catching up with you. Gather your girls for a Sunday detox and pick-me-up at Jeunesse Medical Aesthetics. Spruce up your skin with chemical peels, dermal fillers, wrinkle relaxers, and other rejuvenation techniques to get you and your tribe back to wedding-planning shape.
