See all the greatest spots and activities to celebrate the girl’s in your life in the greatest city, Austin. So, grab the girls, and make it a party!

Friends Forever | Places for you and your ultimate bestie

Do something crazy! Get a piercing with your bff or besties. We got ours done together at Studs on South Congress but they recently opened a new location in the Domain! They have the best tiny earring choices to choose from and the staff was incredibly helpful in picking a placement on our ear that would look best!

You can also get crazy and get a tattoo or a forever bracelet! We love Nina Berenato and her friendship forever bracelets. This would be such a cute thing to bring your mom to as well!

Check out more on what to do with your bestie in our Friends Forever blog!

Cheers to your girlfriends! Toast to Austin Sunsets at these Rooftop Bars

Take in the Austin city skyline from the top of the world when you visit our favorite rooftop bars. The best way to finish off the day is taking in the sherbert orange and pink hues of a southern sunset.

Located in Austin Marriot, this lush terrace is an out of Austin experience. Escape to Zanzibar’s tropical paradise nestled seven stories up on the rooftop. Grab a tiki cocktail served in some funky cups and gaze out across our city’s ever-growing skyline.

You have to visit P6 at the top of the LINE Hotel if you can get a reservation! P6’s rooftop bar and patio, located inside the LINE hotel, has the best sunset view in Austin. At P6 you get whisked away by an elevator to the rooftop for some shade, and sometimes you can catch the bats take flight!

Spend the Day Checking Off some Austin Bucket List Items

One of the best ways spend the afternoon in Austin is seeing all of the ways that makes this city unique. Grab your bucket list and see how many things you can check off with all your girlfriends.

Walk and shop around South Congress Avenue for the ultimate Austin experience. South Congress Ave. stretches for miles and is known for a variety of local shops that make Austin famous for its quirkiness. Check out local boutique Aviator Nation streetwear, the original Joe’s coffee, and Lucy in Disguise vintage and costume shop to name a few.

Grab a scooter or bike for rent and hit the town! Take in the waterfront of Lady Bird Lake when you take a stroll or bike the Lady Bird Lake Trail. The flat trail pathway makes this bike ride an easy breezy afternoon out. Enjoy the waterfront views and the city skyline on a beautiful sunny day out. Enjoy a bike ride with your friends and check off this Austin bucket list item.

Cheers to sipping cocktails at a speakeasy

Austin is home to tons of hidden gems from exclusive dining to secret speakeasies. Find a new undercover spot to enjoy cocktails with your girlfriends when you check out a few of Austin’s best speakeasy cocktail rooms.

This is Austin’s newest cocktail venue, resembling a paradise lost, offering some of the finest boutique cocktails and liquors. Chris is a previous bartender over at Here Nor There and he is now able to share his speakeasy vision through Eden Cocktail Room. Keep an eye out for the red light in the alleyway, sneaky!

Relax with a mani/pedi for the ultimate girls day

Relax with an icnic girl’s day experience. Who doesn’t love a classic spa day?! Give your nails a little TLC when you spend this Galentine’s Day with a little manicure and pedicure day.

Get the ultimate nail art done with Shani’s talented artistry. New to Austin, Nails by Shani is already making a huge impact on everyone’s nails. Our favorite part is that she has an adorable private office where she works her magic one-on-one. She also uses a builder product that is a stronger, thicker gel to help enhance your natural nail growth. Schedule an appointment on her website and select everything you would want to be done during your visit. We are obsessed with ours and can’t wait to see yours!
