The Essential Bachelor Party Guide in Austin, Texas

Austin, Texas is a hot spot for food, booze, and entertainment. It’s no wonder that millions of party-goers flock to this bustling city every year. Perhaps there’s no better epic celebration than the bachelor party. With so many options, it can be hard to narrow it down. That’s why we did the work for you! In this guide, we will cover all you need to know to plan the best bachelor party in Austin!

Lake Travis is Where It’s At!

We already know that an epic bachelor party requires booze — and plenty of it. However, the entertainment is really where it’s at! Better yet? Both at the same time! While there are many boozy good times to be had in Austin, we have found that a truly memorable experience begins with a Keep Austin Wet party boat rental on Lake Travis. 

A party line in legendary Devil’s Cove on Lake Travis

KAW provides all you need for an epic day on the water. We recommend anchoring down at Devil’s Cove with a Double Decker Party Barge rental. Your bachelor party crew will be ready to show everyone where the party’s at with double slides, an over-the-top sound system, and plenty of amenities. Don’t forget to BYOB so you can fill up those on-board ice chests!

Food for Your Crew

After a long day of partying with a Lake Travis party boat rental, you are going to get hungry. Luckily, Austin is home to a thriving food scene. 

If you are looking for a modern Mexican restaurant, we recommend La Condesa. This is an elevated, award-winning experience that is not to be missed! If a lively, old Austin vibe is what you’re after, Ranch 616 may be for you. And, of course, you can’t get through a bachelor party weekend without diving into some of the best BBQ in Texas! For an all-day affair, you can’t go wrong with the world-famous Franklin’s BBQ. However, a short trek to South Austin will reward you with Valentina’s Tex-Mex BBQ. This well-known hot spot serves up incredible BBQ, without the extra long wait.

Turn Up

There is no shortage of bars and clubs in Austin. That’s why we recommend sticking to one of the nightlife districts rather than spending all your time at one or two spots. No matter your vibe, there’s a scene for you.

Sixth Street is an iconic party spot bursting with a mix of everything Austin has to offer. Hit up the Voodoo Room for three stories of DJs, go-go dancers, and live music. A short stumble away is Kung Fu Saloon. Known for its giant game selection and pickle shots, this unique bar might be the group-friendly spot you’re looking for! 

Newer to the Austin nightlife scene is Rainey Street. This row of bungalow houses-turned-bars is perfect if your bachelor party is more on the chill side. Here, you will find plenty of local craft brews and live music at popular spots such as Half Step and Lustre Pearl.
Maybe you’ve heard that Austin is the Live Music Capital of the World. We recommend getting the full experience with a visit to the Red River Cultural District. This unique area is home to some of the best music venues in town! From famous spots such as Stubb’s to lesser-known local favorites like the Mohawk, no bachelor party is complete without exploring this epicenter for local and international musical fame.
