Hi!
I am planning my sister's June bachelorette party in Cincinnati as it is central to all participants. I know nothing about the area and neither does my sister as she just moved there. We are in need of help finding some fun dance clubs for a bachelorette party!

Preferably, we'd like to find an area with a lot of nightlife and a hotel nearby. I appreciate any and all advice. Thanks so much!!!

I see that no one has responded to your thread. This is no doubt because no one knows why women would have a "bachelorette" party. No offense intended.

I know a ton about bachelor parties because there is a tradition that compels a guy's friends to want to humiliate and embarrass a groom to be in his last days as one of the guys. My personal objective for the many, many bachelor parties I have organized is for the groom-to-be to have his head in his hands by the end of the evening, hopefully in tears, saying "my God, I am so embarrassed, I'll never do anything like this again. Please, no one tell Jennifer or anyone else what happened here tonight."

What is it that girls want from a "bachelorette" party? Good company, a few drinks in a nice place, a lot of girl talk? There is no tradition so let us know what you really want and someone will be sure to give you some suggestions.

If you don't know what a bachlorette party is, why bother responding?

Hey OP, if no one in Cincy helps, bring your money up to Indianapolis. We'll take real nice care of you!

Well, for what it's worth, I didn't respond because I have no idea where to tell the OP to hold such a party. I haven't been to a dance club in years.

Why not head up the road a couple of hours to Columbus. SURELY they have a much better assortment of clubs and general nightlife options than Cincinnati.

Without a doubt, you'll want to go to Mount Adams, and chances are you'll spend most of the night there and won't be the only bachelor/bachelorette party making the rounds. This historic neighborhood - which absolutely blows anything Columbus and/or Indianapolis has out of the water (ask Jimmy Buffet) - is stocked with bars and overlooks the city, and is essentially in the downtown area and less than five minutes from most hotels by cab. And it also has several wine-themed restaurants that would be perfect for kicking off most any bachelorette party. I would definitely take a cab though, as parking on "The Hill" is no easy task, particularly on the weekend.

Also, the Cincinnati Art Museum is in the Mount Adams area, if you're looking for something to do before the fun starts.

Check out Mount Adams here and what it has to offer here:

Seriously? I'd always heard about Columbus nightlife and figured it was more of the party town than Cincinnati.

Oh well, never mind. What do I know. As I said I haven't been to a dance club in years. Obviously that shows, huh? LOL!

Read my post slowly and you will see that I asked her to post up what she wants to do at this "bachelorette" party. Are you clairevoiant that she would want to go to Indianapolis? Why? they roll up the sidewalks there at dark don't they?

If she wants a male stripper and shots of Tequila that is worlds away from an outdoor concert and a trip to a dance club, right?

Let's see what she wants to do and then respond, just like I suggested.

Ok, let's all get out our slow readers and re-read. This is what the OP said:

Yes, you are right, your post was as helpful as you describe. How silly of me.

OP asked for an area with a lot of nightlife, you respond with "no one knows why women would have a bachlorette party" and "explain to me what a bachlorette party is."

Ok, I am a guy, and even I know what type of party they are looking for. I have run into many of these types of parties in Indianapolis and other cities.

I am sure she can find what she is looking for in Cincinnati. Cincy is a fun town, so is Columbus and so is Indianapolis. You can keep your pot-shots, I don't need to tear others down to make myself feel better. I just though it strange that the first response to her was someone questioning her motives and taking an almost belittling tone.

Back on topic folks, please. Try helping the OP instead of fighting each other.

OK, let's try this again. Honey, you have to tell us a little information. Are you and your girls 22 year old singles with a penchant for Tequila shots and getting hit on by black guys with 22" rims on their rides? Are you 50 something school teachers from Debuque? When you say "dance clubs" you probably know that there are hip hop clubs and C&W bars and we probably wouldn't send the same girls to both places. And, do you want the bride-to-be to have a dignified evening?

Why is this so hard? Doesn't everyone see the need for some information before we send someone over to the Top Cat or the Mad Frog?
