Ready to plan the ultimate Calgary bachelorette party for your BFF? Lucky for you, the city is brimming with amazing bars, venues and attractions that are well worthy of a stagette. If you’re having trouble finding the perfect place to bring your guest of honour for her stagette, we’ve broken everything down for you.

Here are a few of the best Calgary bachelorette party ideas.

For the snow bunny: WinSport (88 Canada Olympic Road Southwest)
If the bride-to-be is a total winter sports fanatic, WinSport is where to go. Whether you want to ski, snowboard, tube or skate, you can do it here. Heck, you can even make a day of it and have your own mini Olympics. BTW, if you’re searching for summer bachelorette party ideas, you can still use the rink, but ski hills will be closed (there is ziplining, mini golf and a giant slip ‘n’ slide, though!).

For the rising star: Galaxy Karaoke (1324 10th Avenue Southwest)
Does your BFF turns every drive into an impromptu episode of Carpool Karaoke? Does she sing into her hairbrush every morning? Is her shower basically her stage? Sounds like karaoke is a must for her big event. Galaxy Karaoke has a full menu stacked with pub grub, a bar where you can get your pre-performance liquid courage and eleven party rooms that range from intimate to expansive (the largest can fit 60 guests). Don’t forget to warm up your vocals with some pump up jams at your pregame!

For the cowgirl: Ranchman’s Cookhouse & Dancehall (9615 MacLeod Trail Street)
Even if the Stampede isn’t in town, your girl can embrace her western roots at her Calgary bachelorette party - just bring her to Ranchman’s. You can do your dinner, drinks and dance party here, so you won’t have to book a billion Ubers to get from place to place for your night out on the town. It even has mechanical bulls, if you want to get a little crazy.

For the beauty queen: Distilled Beauty Bar (2408-34th Avenue Southwest)
Distilled Beauty bar is the perfect spot to bring a beauty obsessed bride-to-be. Not only can you get pampered here - its service menu includes massages, manis, pedis, facials and more - but you can also indulge in fancy cocktails, tapas and treats. It can accommodate groups of up to 80 guests, so your whole squad can get in on the action.

For the gamer: The Rec Room (1180 - 901 64 Avenue Northeast)
In the market for a Calgary bachelorette party idea that’s a bit more fun than your average bar experience? Head to The Rec Room. The space is a lounge/arcade hybrid and is equipped with a climbing wall, shuffleboard, arcade classics, VR and everything in between (seriously, this place is packed with games). Still not sold? There’s also a dance floor, big screens and sometimes live music or karaoke - so there really is something for everyone.

For the sophisticate: Fairmont Palliser (113 9th Avenue Southwest)
Some girls just aren’t cut out for clubbing, sexy dance routines and strip clubs, and and that’s A-OK. If you are looking for a bachelorette party idea that is a little more sophisticated than scandalous, make a reservation at one of the Calgary's most luxurious hotels for afternoon tea. You’ll get treated to scones, sandwiches, cakes, tea and champagne while you mingle and discuss wedding plans. Want to go the extra mile? Ask guests to sport Kate Middleton-inspired garb and fascinators.

For the fitness junkie: Strut Fitness & Dance (126 - 16 Ave Northeast #11)
If your guest of honour absolutely loves getting her sweat on, incorporate something athletic into her Calgary bachelorette party theme. Of course, you could take a yoga class or hit the weight room, but why not try something a bit off the beaten trail for the occasion? Strut Fitness & Dance offers a wide range of private classes, including burlesque dancing, pole dancing, lap dancing and chair dancing - making it a worthy destination for her stagette.

For the zen bride: The Spa Ritual (106 Crowfoot Terrace Northwest)
So, your friend is up to her ears in planning paperwork for the big day and is teetering on the brink of bridezilladom? It sounds like she could use a rest. Instead of taking her out to the bar to slam back shots and dance the night away, bring her to The Spa Ritual to find her zen. It has several bach-worthy packages to choose from involving massages, facials, manis and pedis.

For the nature lover: Sundance Lodges (Kananaskis Country)
If your pal wants to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and relax in the company of Mother Nature for her stagette, bring her to Sundance Lodges. You’ll get to enjoy the great outdoors with the ultimate glamping experience in a fully decked out tent or tipi (we’re talking real beds and heaters) or you can bring your own gear and book a vacant site. Driving from Calgary takes about an hour, but the journey will be well worth it.

For the foodie: Q Haute Cuisine (100 La Caille Place Southwest)
Couldn’t sway all of the guests to book tickets to Paris for the party? Honestly, I’m not surprised, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up on your BFF’s dreams of being a French foodie for an evening. Bring your girl gang to Q Haute Cuisine and splurge on a fancy tasting menu, or go all out and take a cooking class followed by a five course meal ($140 per person) and wine tasting ($65 per person).
