2. Eat like a local on a food tour
Speaking of food tours, why not make it a central part of your bachelorette party in Madrid? We might be biased, but we can’t think of a better way to spend a classy girls’ night out on the town! In addition to dinner and a show on our Tapas & Flamenco Tour, you can also learn about tapas culture and drink some of Spain’s best wines on our Tapas Like a Local Tour. Another fascinating evening tour is our Tapas, Taverns & History experience, where you’ll step back in time into the glamorous Madrid of the past and learn all about the city’s rich history while you eat.
3. Pamper yourselves at the spa
A bachelorette party in Madrid can be fun and exciting, but sometimes you just need to chill out. Wedding planning can be stressful, so your bride-to-be will surely appreciate the chance to kick back and relax at one of Madrid’s best spas. From champagne facials to Roman-style thermal baths to Thai/Balinese fusion massages and more, luxury and relaxation await!
4. Taste Spain’s best wine and learn to cook Spanish food
Spain is famous for its wine, and the capital is full of amazing wine tastings to learn about the country’s favorite beverage! Your bridal party will have a blast learning all about Spain’s fascinating wine culture and learning how to tell your Riojas from your Riberas. It’s a simple yet classy addition to any bachelorette party in Madrid.
Another great idea is learning how to prepare the fantastic Spanish food you’ve come to know and love! A cooking class in Madrid will take you to the heart of this country’s incredible cuisine. Many classes are available in English upon request.
5. Indulge in a classy, elegant meal (or drinks!)
Start off your bachelorette party in Madrid with some of the city’s most luxurious dining! Many of the best luxury hotels in Madrid offer on-site fine dining restaurants. Make your dinner reservations to start your girls’ night out on a delicious note.
You can also head to one of Madrid’s spectacular rooftop bars to enjoy drinks while taking in stunning views of the city. And the next morning, be sure to gather the girls one last time and head to brunch!
6. Shop ’til you drop
Spain’s shopping scene is one of the best in the world for good reason. In Madrid, you’ll find high quality brands, often at lower prices than in English speaking countries. Gran Vía is packed with incredible stores, but if you want to get off the tourist-beaten path, head to the ritzy Salamanca neighborhood. Another popular barrio is trendy Chueca, where you’ll see both name brands and unique bohemian finds.

Life is too short to speak one language and stay in one place. In 2015, this philosophy took her from familiar Ohio to sunny southern Spain. Usually drinking tinto de verano, reading Lorca, or attempting to dance flamenco (not all at once). Follow her blog, Viatic Couture, for more.
