Day 1: Evening out on the town

Bijou is a contemporary neighborhood restaurant and bar.

Afternoon

Arrive in New Orleans and check in to your hotel or house rental and get settled in!

Evening

Dinner at Bijou – Located in the French Quarter Bijou offered the best atmosphere for an arrival dinner. The cocktails are amazing and so is the food! I had the Roman Amatriciana and it was delicious. Don’t leave without trying one of their espresso martini’s to give you fuel for the rest of the evening!

Walk to bourbon street and go to Pat O’ Brien’s to start! You must get their iconic drink The Hurricane, a New Orleans favorite libation. You can choose from many places to gather in this establishment but if you’re looking for the best time make sure to visit their piano lounge. There is normally a line but their dueling piano experience is well worth the wait!

If you’re still up for a good time head over to Razzoo to enjoy their live band and dance the night away with all your best friends! 100% guaranteed to have a great time!

Day 2: Brunch, tour around & bar hop

Live music at The Maison.

Morning

Brunch at Birdy’s – Birdy’s Behind the Bower is a super chic restaurant that offers a bottomless mimosa brunch and Southern-inspired eats. This is the perfect place to get things going again after a wild night.

Afternoon

Trolley Tour of the city – A historic trolley will take you on a 3-hour charter tour of the city. They can pick you up directly from brunch or from your accommodations. The trolley is BYOB and you can direct them where to go or they can lead the way. You can play your own playlist so your crew can dance while driving around the Big Easy. Our tour took us to Café Du Monde where we were able to enjoy some Beignets and coffee, a New Orleans tradition you cannot miss! We then went to explore some of New Orleans historical cemeteries and the iconic Garden District. The trolley will drop you off at your accommodations to end the tour.

Evening

Crawfish Boil – If your accommodations allow for it Clesi’s catering will host the perfect crawfish boil for you right in your backyard. This gives you the most authentic Cajun food experience complete with a ton of crawfish and jambalaya.

If your accommodation does not allow for it go to dinner at Copper Vine in downtown New Orleans. Copper Vine is a wine pub with over 30 wines on tap!

This would be a great night to play some bachelorette games at your accommodations after an eventful day but if you want to keep things going Uber to Frenchman Street to bar hop and listen to some live music! Recommendations: Maison, DBA, Bamboula’s and 30/90.

Day 3: Jazz, Swamp tour & rooftop

Experience a thrilling swamp airboat tour.

Morning

Jazz brunch at Broussard’s – Enjoy bottomless mimosas and Creole fare while listening to live Jazz music.

Afternoon

Swamp Airboat Adventure Tour – Meet your transportation downtown and ride about 30 minutes outside the city to Cajun Country. Here you will go on a 90-minute airboat adventure in the Louisiana bayou. You’ll get to see Louisiana wildlife and learn about the history of the swampland. There is a bar at the dock where you can purchase drinks. After the tour, your transportation will take you back downtown and you will go back to your accommodations. You will probably want to shower after a day at the swamps!

Evening

Dinner at Jack Rose – Located in the Garden District at the Pontchartrain Hotel, Jack Rose offers a vibrant and fun dining experience. The décor is phenomenal and the food is even better! We ordered a round of celebratory drinks to start –their chambong flutes! I had the Bombolotti pasta for my entrée and it was delicious!

Once the group is finished with dinner –head up the elevator to Hot Tin, a rooftop bar known for amazing cocktails with a chic atmosphere. The patio offers great views of downtown New Orleans. I enjoyed a few lemondrop martini’s here!

If you are still feeling up for it head to Bourbon Street for your final rendezvous in New Orleans. Recommendations: Saints & Sinners, Cat’s Meow and Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop.

Day 4: Farewell brunch

Brunch at Ruby Slipper cafe

Morning/Afternoon

Check out from your accommodations.

Farewell brunch at Ruby Slipper – You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu – it is all very delicious and perfect for nursing a hangover from an amazing time in New Orleans!
