Planning your best friend’s bachelorette party can be a bit of a nightmare. There’s so much pressure to make it a memorable (and non-boring) night for your friend and while it might be tempting to just have some cake and tea and be done with it all, the bride-to-be will love you forever if her last night as a ‘single’ lass is the best ever. To make sure you don’t plan something super naff check out our tried and tested list of bachelorette party ideas below. Whether the lady of the hour is into shirtless men shaking their booty or just wants to let loose on the dance floor, there’s something for every type of girl. Here are 4 places to throw a killer bachelorette party in Joburg!

1. Keep your hat on at Magic Mike Revue

Magic Mike South Africa

See the movie come to life at this local revue bar for ladies. Magic Mike opened its doors in May this year and has changed the face of bachelorette parties in Joburg. The Magic Mike Ladies Revue Show is the perfect destination to celebrate birthdays, bachelorettes or even just a girls night out. The best thing about Magic Mike is that it is a classy spot with no seedy characters. The show is professionally produced and ladies can marvel at the choreographed dance numbers on stage while sipping on delicious cocktails and enjoying a three-course meal. Basically, it’s like Madame Zingara’s but with more stripping. While you’re there take advantage of the photo booth, get wild and do a body shot or visit the Magic Mike shop and stock up on all sorts of fun stuff for the night.
