One of the best parts of being in the bridal party is helping plan your BFF’s hen do. While you probably have a few Liverpool hen party ideas up your sleeve (and maybe have even purchased some cheeky paraphernalia), you’ll want to tackle choosing your venue before you start ironing out the fine details. Liverpool has plenty of places worthy of your hen do, and we’re here to point you in the direction of the best one for your guest of honour.
Here are the 10 best Liverpool hen party ideas for every type of bride.
A night out at CIRCO for the party animal
If your guest of honour wants to go absolutely wild for her last hurrah, CIRCO should be at the top of your list of Liverpool hen party ideas. This circus-themed bar/restaurant hybrid is no stranger to crazy nights - in fact, if you book on a Saturday you’ll be treated to an evening of delicious food, hypnotic audio-visual shows, live DJs, circus performers and more. Want to go all out and guarantee some prime dance floor real estate? Splurge a little and book a booth by the stage.
Mini golf at Ghetto Golf for the competitive bride
Up for a little bit of friendly competition? Head to Ghetto Golf for a memorable night out with your girls. This spot is much more than your average mini golf course - it’s an over 18 joint with graffitied walls (great for ‘grammin), funky decor, live DJs spinning tracks and a full-service bar and restaurant. Seriously, you’ll have a great time even if you don’t get a hole in one.
A cocktail masterclass at The Alchemist for the amateur mixologist
The Alchemist is known for its creative cocktails and you and your friends can learn how to make your own impressive bevvies by booking one of its masterclasses. How does it work? A seasoned bartender will take your squad behind the counter for a night of mixing, measuring and pouring that’ll level up your beverage making skills. Keep in mind that this event is best suited for 6-12 guests, so make sure it works with your guest list.
Drinks at Aloha Bar for the jet setter
If the bride-to-be is dreaming of a destination hen weekend, but it’s just not in the cards for your squad, bring her to Aloha Bar for a night out. This Hawaiian oasis has all the kitschy tiki bar favourites you could want - cocktails in ridiculous vessels like conch shells and treasure chests, bamboo decor, and plenty of knick-knacks. We suggest renting a booth so that you’re guaranteed a table (and some fun extras).
Afternoon tea at The Shankly Hotel for the sophisticate
In the market for something a little classier than hen do paraphernalia, shots and short dresses? Afternoon tea may be the perfect Liverpool hen party idea for the guest of honour. Bring her to The Shankly Hotel to get her fill of finger sandwiches, scones and cakes while sipping on delicious teas.
Dinner at 60 Hope Street for the foodie
Does your friend follow countless #foodporn accounts on Instagram? Does she know all of the hottest restaurants in the city? Well, it sounds like she’d love a food-themed Liverpool hen party. Instead of placing an order on Deliveroo and hanging out at one of your flats, get dressed to the nines and head to 60 Hope Street. Its private dining room can accommodate up to 45 guests, so go ahead and add a few extra friends to your list.
Dance class at Iosis for the dancing queen
If your guest of honour is a total spotlight stealer on the dance floor, this is bound to be a win. Iosis will create a custom class for your group and help you learn the basics of pole dancing, burlesque or aerial arts as a group, so you’ve got options. It’s fun, it’s different, it’ll help her get toned and it’ll probably teach her a few moves that she can bust out at her wedding.
A day at Otterspool Adventure Centre for the adventurer
Otterspool Adventure Centre is the perfect place to bring the girl who’s up for just about anything. Just 20 minutes from Liverpool city centre, it’s definitely not your typical Liverpool hen party destination - you won’t find vodka shots and neon lights here - but it is an awesome place to try new things and get a little down and dirty. For hen parties, you can make use of the high ropes course, obstacle course, or gear up and do a bootcamp (it’ll help that bridal booty in shape).
Treatments at Carnatic Spa for the zen bride
Planning a wedding can be super stressful, so your guest of honour could probably use a bit of rest and relaxation at this point in her journey. While you could buy face masks at Boots and spend your day lounging in robes at one of your flats, we suggest marking the occasion with a trip to the spa. Carnatic Spa can be booked for private events and will treat you and your friends to scrubs, steams, massages and more.
Go-karting at TeamSport for the speed racer
It’s 2018, ladies, go-karting isn’t just for guys! Spend your day speeding around the track and trying to win first place. TeamSport has a number of party packages to choose from (including a Mini Grand Prix and a Team Challenge) so you can customize your race to fit your event. P.S. you may want to pair this Liverpool hen party idea with a trip to a bar or club afterwards to make your event even more epic.
