The popular four-hour "Spoil Me" package is perfect for a bach bash, and includes a Remedy facial therapy, one hour Swedish massage, Haven Foot Renaissance, a Classic European Manicure, and more. The spa requests parties book six-to-eight weeks out depending on group size, and eight weeks beforehand if you want to book the entire spa.
2. Drag Night
Nothing says NYC bachelorette quite like a night at Lips. The venue offers bachelorette-exclusives, like a special three-course menu and, for an extra fee, the bride's 15 minutes of fame on stage.
