Stay: Hotel Valley Ho

Best Bachelorette Weekend in Scottsdale

Hotel Valley Ho is the perfect place to go for a bachelorette weekend not just because they have delicious brunch and super fun pool parties, but this is also kind of their jam. Their Sip + Splash Bachelorette Package comes with a bottle of Prosecco, a $200 per night food and drink credit, a round of cocktails by the pool and even a bach coordinator to help plan your stay. They’ve also got two different pools—one for DJs and dancing and the other for peaceful lounging. What more could you possibly need?!


Dinner and Drinks: ZuZu

After you check in, you can head straight downstairs to ZuZu for dinner and drinks right inside the hotel. It’s got a retro vintage vibe that fits in with the hotel’s cool, midcentury modern style and is famous for their “Show Stopper” Shakes.” They feature a different milkshake each month, and they’re always over the top. If you’re just here for the cocktails, don’t worry—they’ve got those too. Maybe start the night with an espresso martini if you know it’s gonna be a late one!


Pool: OH Pool

Okay, so we mentioned two pools earlier. OH Pool is the one you want to be at if you’re looking for a party (and the one where you’ll get your free round of drinks if you went with the bach package). Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, live DJs spin all afternoon with good tunes and great vibes on deck (pool deck that is). And if all that dancing works up your appetite, you can order food by the pool as well—nachos, anyone?


Spa Treatments: VH Spa

A bachelorette weekend would be incomplete without a little bit of pampering for the bride-to-be (and her girls, of course). Lucky for everyone, there’s an on-site spa at Hotel Valley Ho. Here, you can choose from hot stone treatments, antioxidant facials or even massages inspired by exotic destinations—like an Icelandic Moonflower Signature Treatment or CBD Soother a la Amsterdam. The spa also has a fitness center and sauna, so if not everyone wants the full massage experience, they can get a sweat in while they wait.


Wine: Wine Girl

If you’re looking for the best spot in town to enjoy a cold glass of rosé or split a bottle of Napa Valley merlot, Wine Girl in Old Town is where you want to be. Not only do they have all kinds of incredible wines and yummy charcuterie boards, but it’s also the cutest place ever. They’ve got wooden swings, hanging plants, a flower wall, fun items for sale and a whole lot of pink. Dress cute and don’t forget your “bride to be” sash—you’re going to want to take photos.


Dinner in Town: Toca Madera

When you’re ready to leave the hotel and spend a night out on the town, we recommend Toca Madera to start the evening right. This place is absolutely gorgeous and gives more of an experience than just a meal. When you walk in, you might see dancing and spinning fire, bartenders serving up farm-to-glass cocktails (potentially also on fire) or even people taking shots that start out on fire. (Notice a theme here?) It’s a dining experience you’ll never forget—only the best for a bachelorette weekend.


Late Night: Whiskey Row

When you’re finished with the “classy” part of the evening and want to let your hair down, you have to hit Whiskey Row, an authentic country bar that doubles as a live music venue. You have the option to book VIP Bottle Service or just head to the bar for all your beverage needs. They’ve got a huge dance floor with live DJs playing all night long, and trust us: you could stay here all night.


Brunch: Maple & Ash

Brunch the next morning is an absolute necessity. Maple and Ash isn’t your average pancake breakfast. They have a Belgian waffle tower with tons of toppings, warm beignets, truffle omelets and so many more unique and delicious options. You can order mimosa service for the group or do an espresso martini tree for eight to 12 people. Or if you’re too hungover to make any decisions, they have an option called “I Don’t Give a F*@k,” where they’ll take care of everything. 


Day Party: Maya Day Club AZ

You had a day of pampering, now you’ve got to have a day of partying (it’s called balance), and Maya Day Club has the best pool parties in town. Famous DJs from all over the world come for concerts by the pool (like Nora En Pure, Vice and Borgore), so get your tickets early. We suggest going with a private cabana and VIP bottle service for your group so you have a place to store your things, camp out for the day and skip the line at the bar.


Post-Party: Bottled Blonde

Want to keep the party going? Bottled Blonde in Old Town is a casual pizzeria and beer garden by day that transforms into a full-blown nightclub when the sun goes down—bottle service and all. The open-air dance floor is always packed with people grooving to live DJs and bottle girls with sparklers and light-up signs. Head upstairs and you’ll find a rooftop area with another bar, bright green turf, more tables and views of the city. Cheers to Scottsdale, and cheers to the best bachelorette weekend ever.
