Day 1 - Friday

Start off your weekend right by staying at one of our downtown hotel properties like Embassy Suites by Hilton, which is just a short walk from Broadway. Bring your swimsuit as you’ll want to take a dip in their indoor pool before stopping at their chic hotel bar for pregame drinks. No bachelor/bachelorette party is complete without Capital City Cycle Tours! Experience an unforgettable ride through the streets of Saratoga, complete with music, drinks, and your closest friends. Food is one of the most essential elements of a memorable bachelor or bachelorette party. In Saratoga, you’re spoiled with diverse dining options, but you can't go wrong with Italian cuisine! We recommend making a reservation at either Forno Bistro or Solevo Kitchen + Social. After dinner, take the party to 9 Maple for a night cap (espresso martini, anyone?) or visit Bocage Champagne Bar, an intimate champagne and wine bar in downtown Saratoga. Then, rest up for a full day of excitement at the races!

Day 2 - Saturday

Saratoga is truly the summer place to be! For 40 days, Saratoga Race Course is the heartbeat of the city. Get up early, pack a cooler with your favorite canned beverages, and make your way to America’s oldest sporting venue! After the races, stop by The Horseshoe for live music, great food, and cold drinks. Not into horse racing? Set up a tasting at one of our many breweries or wineries. Druthers Brewing, located on Broadway, is one of the most popular brewpubs in the Capital Region. Their menu, filled with delicious comfort foods, is sure to impress every member of your group. If wine is more your style, we recommend scheduling a tasting at Saratoga Winery or Thirsty Owl Bistro. Both offer top-notch wines and mouth-watering tapas! For a white tablecloth experience, we suggest making a Saturday night reservation at 15 Church or Prime at Saratoga National. Make sure you dress to impress! After dinner, head to Caroline Street for a night of fun. The Bourbon Room offers a variety of bourbons, whiskeys, scotches, and specialty cocktails. Dance the night away at The Misfit or The Soundbar.

Day 3 - Sunday

Before you head home, enjoy brunch at The Merc or Sweet Mimi's followed by a relaxing mineral bath at Roosevelts Baths & Spa (Saratoga is well-known for our naturally carbonated mineral waters) or enjoy a massage at Complexions Spa. On your way out of town, make sure to do a little shopping at one of our many upscale boutiques and retail stores like Caroline & Main or Union Hall Supply Company. Visit Impressions of Saratoga or The Dark Horse Mercantile for all the best Saratoga swag! Whatever you’re looking for, Saratoga has many unique and fun options that will turn your bachelor/bachelorette weekend into an experience you’ll remember for years to come!
