Celebrating the Bride To Be with the ultimate Hens Weekend in Sydney? We may be biased, but you’ve made a killer choice, with options and ideas for every kind of bride. Whether you’re wanting a boozy and bar-hopping weekend, fun daytime activities, unique experiences, or simply searching for ideas on how to throw the best hens celebration, we’ve done the research for you.
The things to do for a good-vibes-only hens weekend in Sydney are plentiful. Let’s dive in.
ENJOY A BOOZY, BOTTOMLESS BRUNCH
Start the day strong, and get straight into it with a bottomless brunch. Some of our favourites in Sydney include:
- The Winery. Every Saturday and Sunday, enjoy 3 fabulous courses and 2 hours of bottomless drinks at The Winery, for $79pp. Situated in a stunning setting in Surry Hills, take your pick of places to continue playing and partying at afterwards.
- Baby Coffee Co. Set within a retro neon palette, with hip hop tunes on the side, Baby Coffee Co will treat your brunch squad to some fun. Their banquet breakfast menu sits at $59pp, and includes muesli, maple bacon sliders (say no more), mains, dessert and the option of adding either bottomless mimosas ($25pp), prosecco ($35pp) or rose ($45pp).
- Salty’s Bondi. For two hours of free-flowing fun, Salty’s Bondi has you covered. Set opposite Bondi Beach, this vibrant surf bar offers a generous bottomless package for $99pp, that includes an endless SoCal x Bondi share feast and a classic margarita on arrival.
- Untied. Untied offers a rooftop bar oasis overlooking Barangaroo. For those wanting cocktails (or non-alcoholic mocktails) alongside many vegan and plant-based menu options, this is the place for you. In fact, you can book a Vegan Bottomless Brunch that’s so good, it’ll please the pants off your carnivore mates. The package is $69pp, which includes a two-hour, 3-course brunch menu and a special cocktail and wine list.
GET YOUR GROOVE ON
Let the Bride To Be unleash her inner dancing queen, and organise a private class at Sydney Vintage Dance Studio. You can choose from any of the studio’s dance styles (we hear the Burlesque, 70s Soul Train and 60s Go-Go classes are particularly fun for Hens Parties), and all of your props are included. Pick from the Ruby Package at $40pp for 90 minutes, or go a little extra with the Diamond Package at $50pp which includes a glass of champagne on arrival.
PARTY WITH A PICNIC
Indulge in a Sydney picnic of Instagrammable dreams… all without lifting a finger. Liaise with the experts like To Dine For Picnics, and suddenly you’ve created an easily organised, extra special, and simply gorgeous Hens party. These guys create luxury pop up picnics with carefully curated crockery, glassware, furniture and unique styling pieces. And all the set up and pack down is all organised for you – the best!
TAKE IT TO THE WATER
Jump onboard a boat and take your Hen’s Party for a cruise across the harbour! The super friendly crew on Rockfish Catamarans will take your group out for awesome views of Sydney Harbour (start planning your Instagram captions!). Their boats are spacious enough for plenty of games and groups of 20-30 people. Great for all budgets, you can BYO (food and drink), or they offer catering for a hassle-free option. Keen to add a little more entertainment to the party? They can also organise a Topless Waiter to serve drinks and provide a bit of eye candy for the day.
GET CREATIVE WITH A FLOWER CROWN WORKSHOP
Looking for a day-time Hen’s Party activity that is equal parts gorgeous, fun, Instagrammable, and a little bit boho? Check out Sydney Flower Social’s range of Flower Crown Workshops. They’ll organise a beautiful selection of fresh flowers, all the tools, tips & tricks for DIYing your crown, and a dreamy setup, with packages starting from $80pp. We love that you can choose your own location (both indoors or outdoors), or select from one of their partner venues which will combine delicious food options.
SHAKE IT UP WITH A COCKTAIL CLASS
For the Bride that wants fun entertainment without a stripper or sleaze, organise a Men On Fire Cocktail Class. Enjoy waterfront views of Darling Harbour while firemen guide your group through a mixture of cocktails (including favourites like Cosmos, Mojitos, Sex on the Beach, and Espresso Martinis). You’ll receive sparkling on arrival, antipasto platters, and a main meal each. There are also options to upgrade your package with activities like a Fireman Life Drawing class. Packages start at $159pp.
HEAD TO THE BAR
As the sun goes down, refresh and get ready to revel in one of the Hens last nights of unmarried life! Shake it off in the CBD with classic tracks and cocktail buckets at Sydney’s favourite late night destination, Side Bar, for guaranteed fun time vibes. Or, take the party to Bondi at the area’s newest beach bar and hangout, Salty’s.
REST EASY WITH GROUP ACCOMMODATION
Get ready altogether, and stay the night as a crew: Wake Up! in Sydney’s CBD has you covered for affordable, group accommodation perfect for Hens parties. Book out an entire 10-bed room just for your group, that offers city skyline views, ample powerpoints for those curlers and straighteners, and plenty of space for getting ready and pre-drinks. Celebrating with a group of more than 10? No dramas. Let’s get you all across a couple of rooms, close by each other. Simply get in touch with the team, and we’ll make the magic happen!
Alternatively, Wake Up! Bondi Beach is ideal if you’re planning on keeping to the Eastern suburbs and beaches. Located directly opposite Bondi Beach, choose from a range of ocean-view rooms within a charming character building.
