Sydney’s Best Hens Night Party Ideas

Classy Hens Party Ideas

A night out on the town featuring anatomy-inspired design not quite your style? Here we share some refined inspiration for an elegant hens party in Sydney, from an indulgent high tea to personal cooking class.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

What bride would not want to imitate the queen of sophistication and class, Audrey Hepburn? For the bride that has a soft spot for pearls and elbow-length gloves, a Breakfast at Tiffany’s themed hen’s party is the best event. Make certain to include an elegant breakfast spread consisting of fresh fruits and croissants. Integrate plenty of Tiffany blue and long strings of pearls in the decoration. You might likewise like to ask the visitors to dress up, giving them the opportunity to dust off their tiaras and preferred little black dress.

Ladies Luncheon

If you’re trying to find a hen’s party idea with a little bit more ‘ooh, la, la’ then you just can’t go past the indulgence of the girl’s luncheon. Indulge your inner Upper East Sider with 4 elegant courses like Wagyu bresaola, goats curd, truffle honey, figs, and our decadent chocolate fondant, vanilla ice cream and honeycomb. For optimal effect remember to load a swipe of red lippy and turn your long lunch into an even longer night.

Darlo Country Club

https://www.facebook.com/darlocc/

With peach coloured walls, high ceilings, leather booths and plants aplenty, the venue takes cues from a slick Californian country club. Aptly defined as being the socially acceptable excuse for day drinking, Darlo Country Club offers an epic bottomless brunch menu options so you can sip to your heart’s content.

Chiswick
https://www.chiswickwoollahra.com.au/

With a menu that’s been designed for sharing and a conveniently pretty garden location (for the pre and post lunch group photos), Chiswick is an easy choice for The Foodie Hen. After all, their menu is the epitome of fresh thanks to an in-house garden and head chef Tom Haynes (graduate of ARIA Sydney and long termer within Matt Moran’s team). We’re ordering the spanner crab caserecci (chili, garlic, basil) and Moran Family lamb (baby eggplant, chermoula) off the Autumn 2017 menu, assuming we’re invited to your next hens that is.

Matt Moran and Peter Sullivan co-own and operate this ‘neighbourhood’ restaurant located in Chiswick Gardens. With a seasonal menu that celebrates produce from the kitchen garden, the restaurant’s emphasis is on shared foods; tuck in over a wood-roasted chicken or Moran family lamb. Groups are welcome but bookings are highly recommended.

Orto Trading Co.
https://orto-trading-co.business.site/?m=true

‘Orto’ in Italian means ‘vegetable garden’, and the simple, homely, rustic dishes pay homage to the connotation of a leafy veg patch. Try the Orto take on traditional British dishes like bangers and mash or a Ploughman’s with duck scotch egg, pickles, epicure cheddar, wagyu silverside and sourdough rolls.

sydney cranebar

Cranebar
https://www.cranebar.com.au/hens-parties

Unless you’re treating yourself to miscellaneous rotisserie-sliced meats or awesome Portuguese chicken chains, late-night dining options in Kings Cross can be a little thin on the ground. But one recent addition to the Potts Point bar scene is looking to change that, with a fresh mix of Japanese food aimed at the after-ten crowd.

Just down from the heaving masses at World Bar and Candy’s Apartment, Crane Bar is a great option for those who want the action of a night in the Cross with more of a chilled vibe. And there’s some seriously good food here, whether you’re in for a sit-down dinner or snacks between cocktails.

Start with edamame. Chilli and truffle salt make the soybean pods both zingy and earthy. Steamed-then-fried gyoza are god’s gift to bar snacking, while sushi rolls are beautifully presented and great for sharing. Try the ‘fire crunch’: spicy tuna with crisp-fried onions and tobiko roe.

Skip the exxy sashimi and go for the chicken karaage. Presumably Japanese for ‘put all of these in my mouth right now’, these little pieces of crisp, fried chicken are served with a wasabi mayonnaise that offers plenty of spark without the horseradish afterburn.

Cocktail-wise, our pick is the Yuzu Sour (yes, we go back for seconds) thanks to its delicately citrusy taste and refreshing variation on the lemon Warhead theme that many bars try to dole out. For savoury drinks fans, the Umami Mary delivers on the promised fifth element of Japanese flavour, while the Miyagi Mule has a strong ginger ale base and all the kick of its namesake. Best of all, the gents behind the bar mix the goods with plenty of sass and none of the pretension that you might expect from a bar in this end of club-town.

For those who want to kick on beyond the dinner table, the open-air lounge at the back is taken over in the later hours with a spiral staircase (trucked in from the set of The Great Gatsby, no less) serving as a DJ booth. If you’re tired of throwing shapes around the tree sprouting up through the dance floor, you can retire into the VIP room in the back corner, which offers a more traditional tea house vibe for private groups.

Crane offers solid cocktails, friendly staff and food that’s made for popping in your mouth between stints on the DF. If you were looking for late-night digs in the Cross for grown ups, you’ve found it.

Why A Strip Dinner and Show Is the Perfect Ladies’ Night Evening

A ladies night is the perfect time to celebrate birthdays and bachelorette parties or hen’s nights—but what should you do on a ladies night? There are a lot of options out there, but if you want to do something that will be fun, exciting and combine drinks, dinner and show, then there’s only one option for your upcoming ladies night evening: a male strip show! If you want to find out why, read on to discover the many ways that a male strip show will make for a perfect ladies evening out.

Packages can include dinner and a show. If you want your ladies night to include food—whether it’s hot finger food or a full dinner—then you’re in luck! Male strip shows are all about the VIP experience and offer packages that include dinner and a show, so you can enjoy the entertainment while indulging in some great food and drinks that will leave you more than satisfied as you take in the sights and sounds on stage.

They’re extremely fun. If you’ve never been to a male strip show before, then you might not realize how fun and exciting they really are; they combine the artistry of a dance show with attractive male dancers, great music, and plenty of fun and excitement that will have you smiling and laughing all night long.

Sporty Hens

So you’re organising a hens party but you don’t want to do the ‘typical’ thing… and you want to make sure all of the bride’s friends will be included… and you want to ensure everyone has a brilliant time even though they don’t all know each other… stress no more, we’ve got you covered girl!

Kayaking

Confess, all of us understand one of those gals who wears active wear to brunch with the legitimate intent of hitting the gym afterwards (they’re not just ‘decorative’ leggings individuals). When it comes time for The Active Bride to celebrate, a Manly Kayaking trip makes sure to please.

Paintballing

Don’t let the people have all the enjoyable! If a girls day at the Day Spa sounds as amusing as viewing paint dry, the busy action of the paintball battlefield might be more your design.

Combining heart-pumping enjoyable and a killer workout, the carbs will not count when your pizza lunch is served. Best of all, you’ll leave energised and prepared for a night of high-end after this unique day-time event.

Bungy Jumping

For the hen who resides on the wilder side. Nice and basic, you jump off a tall structure with a rubber band tied around your ankles. Seem like your vibe? The very first one was finished in Bristol, England and idiots and legends have been finishing the dangerous activity ever since. The good news is, bungy leaping has never been much safer and is completed in some genuinely stunning settings. This is a huge benefit as it typically takes the focus off you or the hen shitting yourself en route down.

Axe Throwing

There’s something about tossing axes that just gets the blood pumping, the girls laughing, and unleash the warrior lady in your bride-to-be. Trust us, at House of Hens we like it! Axe throwing is not just for big guys with bushy beards, Viking females have wielded axes since prior to it became a fun weekend activity. A professional trainer will talk you through different throwing designs, how to strike that bullseye, and even run your group through some competitors and video games. This special experience is like no other.

Maniax
http://www.maniax.com.au/

Two Aussies have set up an axe-throwing league in the Inner West and, as Time Out finds out, it’s not nearly as macho as it sounds. Keen to throw a hatchet at a wooden target? This warehouse set-up in St Peters attracts all sorts of people from hens and bucks parties to office outings.

“Everyone’s got a different style,” says Maniax co-owner Adam Schilling. “Some people are lobbers, some throw it hard, some soft…” They teach the same technique to everyone, says business partner Steve Thomas. “But everyone puts their own spin on it. Pardon the pun.”

Schilling and Thomas are working airline pilots who’ve been mates since they shared a house in Adelaide. Steve came across the new sport while he was living in Canada. “We did it for my bucks party last year, and when I told Adam about it he was like ‘we need to set up in Australia.’” They pitched a target in Adam’s backyard in Coogee and “threw until the neighbours got upset”.

“The first insurance broker we approached laughed and told us we were crazy,” says Steve. They eventually got it over the line and the venue has a zero-tolerance policy on aggression, alcohol and and thongs or heels. “We encourage people to get competitive, but not aggressive,” says Steve. “We have lots of requests for divorce parties. You can take it out on our targets.”

A few corporate groups have pinned buzzwords and company policies to the targets, but Maniax is not OK with pictures of people – for obvious reasons. Though there’s no booze on site, new brewery Willie the Boatman is next door for a post axe-throwing schooner if you’re feeling thirsty.

How does it work? “Each game consists of three rounds of five throws; the best of three wins the game,” says Steve. Opponents score five points if the axe lands in the inner circle, three for the middle and one point for the outer ring. Then there’s the ‘Snatch’ – two red dots at the top of the target, worth seven points.

“It’s all about finding your inner lumber Jack or Jill,” says Steve. Their top tip? “Follow through, then flick your wrist,” adds Adam.

For the super competitive, there’s a weekly league night (which they’re expanding to three nights a week), so you can battle it out in a tournament of 30 people over eight weeks. Spectators are welcome, free of charge.

Archery Hens

From Robin Hoods’ Maid Marian and Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games, to the red-haired Meridan in Disney Pixar’s Brave, Hollywood has actually embraced brave females with bows and arrows. Now it’s your turn to bring the archer goddess dream to life, with your extremely own coloured bow, foam tipped arrow and … face guard. True to its name, Archery Attack is a battle and you are the target. Your group will be tossed into the battlefield with just the inflatable barrier course and your safety equipment to secure you. And we ensure the Hen can’t conceal with a target strapped to her back!

Archery Games

https://archerygames.com.au/

She’s engaged!!!” Time to plan the most memorable hen’s night activity in history… Don’t go searching for “tea party” or “dance class”. Just don’t even search actually, because you’ve already found your answer right here! Archery Tag in Sydney is your ticket to being hailed the best maid of honour/bridesmaid ever.

What’s Archery Tag?

Ok – if you haven’t heard, it’s the newest and hottest combat sport to hit Australia from the U.S. Both men and women (and even kids!) are having a blast trying out this high intensity team game. Bucks and Hens enjoy it for something new and different, feeling like they have already done the usual activities before their big day. An event is typically 10-20 players, split into 2 teams who battle to shoot their opposing team members using the bows and foam-tipped arrows. These pack a small punch but don’t leave any welts, unlike paintball. We play on a grass field in parks/reserves, tennis courts, private properties or at an indoor centre. Players hide behind large inflatable bunkers and move strategically to shoot at the enemy to tag them out, and also aim at foam targets to win the game.

What can we expect at a Archery Tag Hen’s event?

Gather the bride, bridesmaids and her closest friends, choose your location across Sydney that suits your group. After some initial instruction and practice with our simple recurve bows, chuck on a mask, grab some arrows and head out to the field. Teams verse each other on either side of the field, aiming to tag out other players with their arrows. You’ll experience a variety of Archery Tag gameplay: VIP, Medic, Capture the Flag, Zombies vs Humans… make it as intense or relaxed as you want! Be warned, you may be in the firing squad if your team loses a round!

Sydney Harbour Escapes
https://www.sydneyharbourescapes.com.au/

Choosing to charter a boat for a Hen’s Cruise is a great idea. Sydney Harbour provides the best backdrop for a day of fun and relaxation with the girls.

Bar Hopping

The cosy and familiar charm of the boutique bar has actually been permanently eternalized in tunes, movies and obviously television classics like Cheers. Every bar has a special character and the kind of inviting appeal that’s perfect for a Hens Party, from a cosy corner lounge to cocktails on the rooftop. Whatever has been thought of for you in this extensive Bar Package, complete with a reserved location for your group, scrumptious food and beverages bundle, and attentive personnel. So bring up a stool and settle in at the bar. What occurs next is up to you!

PS40
http://www.ps-soda.com/

These fearless innovators have shifted the way we think about drinking – and Sydney is all the better for it In the middle of 2019, PS40 co-owners Michael Chiem and Thor Bergquist nixed their cocktail list and formulated an entirely new menu inspired by their favourite festivals around the world. They even gave that menu a name: Festivus. If that sounds a little silly to you, remember that no bar commits to reinvention with more conviction than PS40, and that any idea or theme is just an excuse to let these gifted imaginations run totally free.

Thanksgiving isn’t even a festival, it’s a holiday. It’s also what they’ve called their delicious riff on a Rye Whisky Sour, spiked with sweet potato and sage, because why the hell not? Hanami, named after Japan’s cherry blossom festival, takes a slightly more literal approach by drawing deep red colour and ripe perfume from clarified beetroot juice before layering it with dark rum, vermouth and orange bitters. It’s a winner.

The ride only gets wilder from there. Order the Harvest, and you’ll get a pearly solution of fermented rice served in a metal pan with a chunk of honeycomb, aromatised with peaches and Manzanilla sherry so it takes on the distinct dairy-sweet tang of a cloudy sake. A similarly dizzying degree of complexity unravels in a Lunar New Year, where red beans and pandan leaf lead whisky and Cognac down a path of nutty twists and turns.

Creativity has been the watchword here since they switched on the lights in 2016, but that’s always had as much to do with the soft drinks as the hard ones. This also happens to be a soda factory we’re talking about, and as non-alcoholic alternatives become a bigger part of the conversation, it’s important to remember that PS40’s been moving the needle from day one. The $15 soda flight that lets you sample each one of the housemade creations is one of the most exciting ways to exercise your palate in town. 

For these guys, waking up in the morning is another opportunity to continue redefining our perception of what a drink can be – and you don’t even need to be seated at the bar to appreciate their efforts. Walk into Newtown’s P&V Merchants and you’ll find the aquavit they made in partnership with South Australia’s Never Never Distilling Co for sale on the shelf. Sit down to lunch at Single O in Surry Hills and order a bottle of Smoked Lemonade (made with the help of the mammoth smoker at LP’s Quality Meats) to go with your sanga. Heck, you can even pull up a pew at Old Mate’s Place to see what those clever cocktail specialists do with the sodas, which is a tick of approval if ever there was one.

In a mere three years, PS40 has managed to leave an indelible stamp on this city’s drinking scene. So much so, in fact, that demand has outweighed supply and forced them to move soda production off-site. That leaves a lot of space for new ideas to take flight on Skittle Lane – and enough room for Time Out’s 2020 Bar of the Year trophy, too.

double deuce lounge and bar

Double Deuce Lounge
https://www.facebook.com/Double-Deuce-Lounge-266128031007962

The ‘porno chic’ sophomore effort from the Ramblin’ Rascals is a standard-bearer in the Sydney bar scene

A cocktail joint named after a dive bar in a cult Patrick Swayze flick with a ’70s aesthetic inspired by the Golden Age of Porn. It sounds like a cockeyed concept that, in most hands, would go terribly, painfully, catastrophically awry. But “Cosmo” Soto, Dardan Shervashidze and Charlie Lehmann are not most hands – they’re Baxter Inn alumni, the rabble-rousers who glorified “shit tins” and shirtless overalls at the Ramblin’ Rascal Tavern and two-time winners of the Time Out Bar Award for Best Bar Team. These are the right guys for the job.

Things are thoroughly cheeky at their second venture, down in a booze-stocked, retro-panelled bunker straight from Boogie Nights, with a soundtrack to match. The crew, too, look every bit the part – rocking bowling shirts, booty shorts, tennis socks and slick quiffs, all too eager to hand you a VHS case with a risqué cover that turns out to be the drinks menu. Elsewhere you might find yourself flipping through pages of punny names, garish descriptions and outlandish illustrations before landing on something you’d consider knocking back, but not here.

There are just ten cocktails on the tariff, all $20, and much like the vibe, they’re designed with no-nonsense good times in mind. Lean into the theme with a thoughtfully updated Cosmopolitan, punched up with pomegranate, apricot and rosella for extra pucker. Or perhaps kick things off with a BabyCham, a fizzy number modelled after the daggy sparkling perry of the same name, bolstered by Calvados and Manzanilla sherry. A couple into the wind and you, too, will be shimmying and spelling out ‘respect’ letter by letter in tune with Aretha.

Fun is the key ingredient, without a doubt, but that doesn’t mean they’ve lost sight of the fundamentals that make a good bar great: a sprightly greeting, comfy booths, even comfier stools (with cushioned backs!) and sharp-witted service that’s equally watchful. It’s an A-team-only affair, regardless of whether it’s a quiet Monday after-work knockoff or a slammer of a Saturday night, and your request for anything off the list will be met with nothing but vim and vigour.

Striking the balance between a serious cocktail bar and a bar serving serious cocktails that doesn’t take itself too seriously is no mean feat, but that’s Double Deuce Lounge in a nutshell. And that’s exactly why it’s taking home the gong for Best Cocktail Bar in 2020.

Bulletin Place
http://www.bulletinplace.com/

If you’re going to drink cocktails in this town, this is where you do it. Consistency doesn’t sound sexy – it’s not the descriptor designed to get you a super like. But when you change your cocktail list more often than people change their sheets, a guarantee that those five drinks are going to be creative, delicious, exciting, and worth every last dollar is starting to sound very attractive, isn’t it?

That’s why people still love Bulletin Place. This 45-person capacity bar hidden down near the harbour has proved without a shadow of a doubt that time does not have to erode the quality or consistency of your product. If anything, the team here are going harder than ever. Not quite imbibing the way you used to? They’re making their own kombucha in-house and their mango edition is a punked-up soft drink that manages to be equal parts complex and tropical fun. 

Can a drink be both fruity and dry? It can if it’s the Roses are Red, combining the gentle astringency of blood plums, hibiscus and Campari with fruit-infused wines. Upstairs they get up to all sorts of fermenting wizardry when not behind the bar, like making their own wine out of pears and camomile. They’re also mixing fresh peaches in with riesling and skin-contact whites to create something extra fresh and juicy. Add a glug of gin and a spritz of fennel flower, and you’ve got a summer garden party riff on a Negroni.

Bourbon, blackberry and sherry, shaken and served up, digs deep for the kind of rich, Southern velvetiness that you’d expect on a Mississippi steamliner. We don’t drink a dud all night – in all honesty, we never have here. Being an early adopter can be challenging. Back in 2013 Bulletin Place was a lonely island of undiluted cocktail excellence in the north of the CBD. Fast forward six years and the likes of Bistecca, Doss House, Maybe Sammy, and the Mary’s and Ramblin’ Rascals crews have joined the party down near Circular Quay. But Bulletin still holds our number-one dance card for cocktail creativity in Sydney.

Strippers

The Imperial Hotel
http://www.imperialsydney.com.au/

The Inner West’s famous queer pub is Sydney’s home of loud and proud nights out

The Imperial was first ordained a safe space for the LGBTQIA community when Dawn O’Donnell, the mother of gay Sydney, bought it in the ’80s. It has opened and shut with many different faces in the years since then, but at its heart it has always been a place for queer identities to thrive on the sticky carpet of the much loved pub.

So it follows that punters who have been sashaying into the Imperial since 1983 might be a little shell shocked at the latest edition: the pool table in the front bar is gone, the gilded Venus statue has been moved to the roof and downstairs is clean as a whistle. But unlike so many refurbished institutions, the team here obviously care for the building’s storied history.

The first level is like walking into Liberace’s first bachelor pad out of home – it’s opulent, but with an accessible warmth and some comforting rough edges. The front bar gleams with posh touches but any night of the week you’re likely to find a drag queen sassing into a mic, with stilettos stomping among the schooners of New. Head through to the back and you’ll find Priscilla’s, a pub bistro with a veggie-heavy menu – there’s vegan ceviche made from coconut and cauliflower and broccoli “wings” with ranch dressing – though steaks and roast pork also feature.

Drag ‘n’ Dine happens every week from Wednesday to Sunday, so your zucchini noodles will be accompanied by one of Sydney’s star drag kings and queens: on Thursdays your dinner comes with a side of the Aussie Pole Boys, Sydney’s award-winning all-male pole dancing troupe. As is customary, the front bar is also a fabulously daggy disco after-hours with Diana, Cher, Madonna, and Whitney on heavy rotation.

Cap off your week with a subterranean boogie in the basement bar. An attendant at the door will happily decant your drink into a plastic cup, heralding the debauched dancefloor you’re about to plunge into. It’s not that wild, but veterans will be pleased to know it still smells like a lot of people cleaning their VHS tapes. It’s got enough sweat, smudged lippy and grind about it to make it feel like it deserves to be underground. And the best part is the music. It’s loud, and proud and so early ’00s awful that it’s intoxicating. The basement also hosts regular parties from some of Sydney’s best queer collectives: Honcho Disko, Heaps Gay and Girlthing.

The team behind the Imperial’s latest facelift has done a brilliant job of it. It’s tasteful without being cold, it’s sophisticated without scrimping on fun, and most importantly ,it honours the past. Drag is at the forefront, queer culture is celebrated, and the music is Palms-level perfection. Dawn O’Donnell would be proud.

night out in town hens party

Oxford Art Factory
http://www.oxfordartfactory.com/

Where would we be without this Sydney institution that refuses to let the music die?

Is the Oxford Art Factory Australia’s answer to New York’s CBGB? It’s not that outrageous a suggestion when you consider the calibre of acts that have graced the 500-person band room over its ten years of operation.

Did you know that Lady Gaga played her first Australian show there in 2008? Or that Dave Grohl still wears his Oxford Art Factory shirt that he got playing a gig here in his covers band, Chevy Metal? They even had a Bret Easton Ellis book launch – Ellis came on stage after the Models performed and he spoke for two and a half hours to a standing crowd and as OAF boss Mark Gerber recalls, “You could have heard a pin drop.”

Countless great bands have started their musical journey on the small stage in the narrow gallery bar next to the bandroom, too. “We saw the rise of the Jezebels, Chet Faker, the Rubens, and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard in that small room,” says Gerber. And although Tame Impala played for about 25 people at one early show, you could “almost smell it in the air, when someone’s got greatness written all over them”.

Over the last decade, live music venues such as the Annandale and the Hopetoun have withered and died, but Gerber believes that it’s his venue’s unique place in the ecosystem of live music that has ensured its survival in an environment increasingly hostile to late-night entertainment. “People seem to forget that in order for someone to play Laneway Festival, they need to do the hard yards and play the whole circuit to get from the small spaces like the gallery bar to the Lansdowne, and then back here on the main stage, and then the Metro – there’s a ladder you need to climb.

“All artists start somewhere, and governments need to recognise that it’s equally important to support the new artists coming up as it is the support the established art forms. You need to support every spoke on the wheel, otherwise you won’t be listening to the music that came out of this time in 100 years. We need to do everything to try and create a new Beatles all the time, or a new Janis Joplin or Courtney Barnett.”

Of course, it hasn’t all been smooth sailing and sell-out shows. Gerber likens being inside the lockout zone as a kind of cultural ‘East Berlin’. But he sees resilience in Sydney. “The thing you can’t suppress is the feeling in people that they want to go out. I don’t see live music going away, and I would imagine that in ten years’ time the Oxford Art Factory is exactly as it is now. Whatever you do has to be for the long haul, so what I’ve done here is create something that can be around for another ten, 20 years.”

Located in Cockle Bay, this large three-story nightclub attracts locals and tourists alike for mainstream house music and occassional local live music. Its Harbour views make it a top destination for revellers looking to dance until sunrise.

Overseas Trip

A hen’s trip is everything about kissing single life farewell, at a leading party destination. Wear tiaras and veils on the beach, vineyard hop or dance your way through glamorous clubs. Whatever you choose to do, these locations guarantee the bride-to-be is spoilt for option– simply do not forget, anywhere you go, please keep in mind to remain safe, and alert your loved ones of your whereabouts so they don’t fret!

Phuket, Thailand

Warm all year round and rife with powder white beaches and crystal blue ocean, Phuket is the hens escape that will see her and her BFFs living the luxe life for a fraction of the price they would pay for an Australian beach getaway.

It’s also a choice escape pre-wedding as the hottest months in Phuket are April-May and September-October, AKA wedding season months.

In short: Take the trip to Thailand to live like a queen with the beach and surf at your beck and call.

Our accommodation pick: Anantara Mai Khao. What better send off into married life can you get than spending a few nights with your hens in a private villa by the beach.

For luxurious hotels and spas, without the price tag, Patong Beach is every hen’s dream come true. Add to that cheap flights to Thailand from Australian capital cities and you’ve got an affordable, extended hen’s getaway. Spend your days lazing on powder soft sand and swimming in turquoise seas. Giggle your way through the infamous nightlife of Patong’s Bangla Road. Then, nurse your hangover at the lavish Aqua Spa.

Bali, Indonesia

It’s no secret Australia has a love affair with Bali. The island is one of the hottest party destinations for Aussies as it’s both accessible and affordable.

Find yourself a great-value villa in upmarket Seminyak and settle in for shopping, sunbaking and famous Bali sunsets. Or, if you’re an active hen’s group, head out diving, surfing, snorkelling and day-tripping around the island’s famous attractions. On dusk, Seminyak’s beach glows with beachfront restaurants, bars, colourful umbrellas and beanbags. Live bands accompany fruity cocktails, seafood dining and magical moments as the sun drops into the sea.

Book a bungalow or villa with private butlers and waiters and make a beeline to your very own pool.

In short: Sun, surf, drinks and parties until the wee hours of the morning. Need we say more?

Our accommodation pick: W Retreat Seminyak. Right on the beach and near the infamous Potato Head Beach Club, the W Retreat offers every sort of accommodation from resort rooms to villas with private pools.

Creative Hens Party Ideas

So you’ve been asked by your bestie to do the honours as bridesmaid. That means discussing exciting wedding plans, going to bridal fittings, providing plenty of emotional support during the planning and of course, planning the all-important hen party!

Baking Class

Another excellent idea for hen’s celebration is baking if you are trying to find something different than strippers. Going for a baking class is best for bride-to-bes who are looking for a special and enjoyable activity. Likewise, this is a beautiful method to bond with your girls. There are women of any ages of life; it will be an outstanding concept to talk with them and take a tip.

The Sconery
https://www.thesconery.com.au/

Looking for a hens party in Syndey ?  Looking for a classy hens party ? After a hens party for all age groups ?   Look no further as The Sconery welcome all hens !!! We do a number of different baking classes to cater for hens parties.  Classes run for either 2.5 hours or 3.5 hours. As with all our hens baking parties, we aim to create a fun and relaxing environment for all ages joining the class !!! 

My love affair with food started at a very early age, an affair that would make me transcend continents, travel vast distances and eventually put down roots in Sydney.  Having been born and raised in England and for the most part content and happy, I decided to try my luck at Catering School. Two years later I was set free and yearned to experience other countries and cuisines.  I traveled, taking my skills with me and for the next 20 years I worked in fine dining restaurants, 5 star hotels, bakeries, patisseries & cafes. I ate, I drank, I laughed, I fell over a few times then ate some more.  Food was more than fuel to me, more than just sustenance, it united people, it broke down barriers and it was fun! Cooking, eating and sharing food should always be fun!  

I can still remember the earliest food memories of my childhood : visiting my Grandma and Grandpa’s and enjoying their homemade Afternoon Tea on their best china.  The table was literally groaning under the weight of Trifles, Cupcakes, Chocolate cake, Eccles cake, Banbury cake, Lardy cake and of course Scones. My Grandparents always laughed, giggled and occasionally scolded each other but from that tiny kitchen, their culinary passion always exceeded expectations.

My Mother was also a genius in the kitchen, many recipes she had inherited from Grandma and before the days of google she would spend hours pondering over recipe books. My sister and I would peer through the stair banister while my parents had dinner parties and see each course (and there were many) waft into the dinning room.  Never content with one sweet offering my Mother would make at least three desserts, each more gooey and oozing with cream then the last, the aroma drifting down the hallway was always mesmerizing, sweet and delicious.

These memories have always stayed with me, the sheer excitement and awe of children, eyes wide open and gob-smacked with the sheer abundance of cakes, pastries, desserts and other yummy sweet confections on offer. Here at the Sconery we want to reunite you with these memories, take a seat, prise open a warm buttery scone, a spoonful of jam, a dollop of cream, no – two dollops of cream, close your eyes and enjoy!

Your scent. Suitable for both genders!

You’ll start with a brief history of perfume, and learn about our sense of smell, and its intimate connection with emotions and memory. We’ll discuss how perfume is layered using odourants that evaporate at different rates, and you’ll learn handy tips on fragrance making.

As you apply perfume, you’ll first encounter the top note, since it’s made up of highly volatile odourants. Choose from the same odours used by major perfume houses, and blend them until you have a fragrance that is close to your soul. The next stage is to mix the heart note. Again, you’ll choose and mix odourants until you feel that that the perfume is in tune with your own heart.

The base note of the perfume is what endures and lingers. Woody, musk and amber are predominant odourants for this note. Within each layer, you’ll get to choose from lots of different odours, and you’ll have plenty of time to smell them all, to find and test the ingredients and blend that appeals most to you. Your teacher, Joseph, will give you one on one feedback and will assist you to balance and fine-tune your concoction if you like, but otherwise you’ll be free to explore and let your creativity run wild.

Sydney Cooking School
http://sydneycookingschool.com.au/

Learn the best of classical French cuisine at the Sydney Cooking School. When it comes to flexing muscle in the kitchen, this writer is usually pretty happy with spreading a slab of butter onto a plate of Ryvitas and taking the cardboard delicacy at the breakfast bar. Luckily, the French Classics course at Sydney Cooking School is set up perfectly for lazy cooks – and there’s a fair whack of butter in the recipes for our meals, tarte Tatin and duck a l’orange. Head chef and teacher Brett Deverall takes care of a few steps in the process, such as preparing the quantities and laying out utensils required for the first dish. Working in pairs at gas stoves, Brett demonstrates each stage of the recipe sharing simple knife skills such as how to slice an orange to avoid any ugly white pith, and how to drain the fat from the pan without dropping the duck. Deverall, who once worked for chef Raymond Blanc, entertains us with stories of 100-hour working weeks in Paris as we finish off the two-hour lesson with a sophisticated, and very grown up, meal together at the table.

Boudoir Photography
https://nicolebarraletphotography.com/

Boudoir photography is a celebration of the female form. It’s a photo shoot that helps you step out of your comfort zone, embrace your body, embrace self love and capture beautiful portraits that celebrate your unique beauty. A boudoir photo shoot is so much more than just a photo shoot. It’s an experience. It’s a feeling. It’s owning a collection of photographs that remind you of the empowering feeling that comes with stepping outside your comfort zone!

There are many different types of boudoir photography. It ranges from the sexual to the sensual; and depending on what you are looking for there is a variety of different photographers out there.

​To me, the most empowering boudoir is soft, subtle, feminine and leaves something to the imagination. It’s not overly sexual, but more sensual. It is all about capturing the most beautiful photographs of you – your unique beauty; and by stripping down into lingerie in front of a relative stranger you face your body fears and step into empowerment and ownership of your body.

Cocktail Making & Gin Masterclass

A very popular alternative for hen’s days in Sydney, due to the fact that who doesn’t want to learn how all their preferred drinks are made? Invest a couple of hours mastering all those pointers and tricks you see those master mixologists do perfectly– certainly an ability to flaunt at your next dinner celebration. The very best part? You even get to taste them too– this one is something the women will enjoy and is the ideal activity to do in the afternoon before hitting the clubs later that night.

A beverage option of 2019 is gin, so maximize this popular year-round drink with a gin tasting sesh. Try the finest gins and select your own mixers. Some classes teach you the history of gin and how to pour the best drink, all whilst getting to try three different ranges. If you would like something a little more unique, you can create your own gin. As a bonus offer, you’re given some of your own design to take home with you to continue the festivities.

Ding Dong Dang, Surry Hills
https://www.facebook.com/Ding-Dong-Dang-149295035107286/

When the clock strikes midnight and you’re ready to kick on there are only three words you need to remember. DING. DONG. DANG. This place is one of the oldest karaoke joints in Sydney. Located on Elizabeth Street, Surry Hills there is nothing flash and fancy about it. In fact if you looked at the front of Ding Dong Dang during the day of light you’d probably think it was just a cover for a dodgy illegal gambling ring. But when night falls just look for the neon sign and on the weekends be sure to call ahead and make a booking- this place pumps! Drinks wise you’re pretty limited but if you don’t mind smashing some tinnies or Smirnoff Double Blacks you’ll love it! They are big on the old fashioned book system so don’t expect a digital, high-tech extravaganza. But the drinks are cheap and they have all the songs you’ll ever need for a good time.

Escape Room

For a fun afternoon, experiment with an escape room in Sydney. Work together to find ideas and work them out to “save the world”. This is a perfect concept if not everyone in the party understands each other; it’s an excellent way to start a conversation!

Expedition Escape Rooms
https://www.expeditionsydney.com.au/

The first challenge you face at Expedition Escape Rooms is figuring out if you’re in the right place. The entrance to the recently opened Redfern venue sits below a sign for a linen factory outlet (we don’t think it’s part of the theme), and you’ll need to push through an internal gate to walk up the dimly lit stairs.

You’ll meet your gamesmaster in the tidy lobby – the pictures of colonial ships and old manuscripts don’t give too much away – and get nitty gritty release forms out of the way before the theatrics begin. Our group of five brave code crackers is led, blindfolded, into the first section of ‘the Forgotten Son’, which is the first of three rooms being planned for the venue. 

It begins with an ominous debrief: we are lost travellers in outback Australia who have stumbled upon a shack, drawn there by the sound of childlike sobs. We’re tasked with finding a way inside the locked door to investigate, and also escape the encroaching dark (make use of the torches as night rolls in). The time period? Definitely pre-internet but we’ve got electricity down pat. We’re told the gods are watching over us, and if we require assistance, we should simply look to the heavens and pray (for a clue).

The puzzles are an intriguing mix of traditional mechanical and word-based codes, along with electrical and magnetic mysteries – we’re glad we have an engineer in tow for the tricky electrical current switcheroo. There are plenty of padlocks to open, and as you make your way from the shack’s front gate to multiple interior rooms, you’ll find more chilling, interconnected items that’ll lead you to freedom. But beware: it’s easy to get distracted thinking a particular pot or pipe is integral to the game, when you should really be focused on the fire and the spooky childlike voice that seems to be floating in the air. You really need to keep your ears pricked in this escape room, as there’s the unusual addition of ghostly interactivity.

The highlight of the 60-minute experience has got to be the grand finale (fingers crossed you get there) which requires synchronised teamwork and just a tad of cardio fitness. After this mad dash finish, you can do a post-game review with the gamesmaster (who is the hilarious Lindsey on our visit), walking through each space to break down clues you missed and crown the MVP. 

If you like Expedition’s dramatised, storyline-oriented style, look out for the next two rooms they’re developing at the same site. They’re going for one with a medieval theme and another nuclear disaster situation.

The Cipher Room
http://www.cipherroom.com.au/

This escape room in Newtown is brilliantly challenging and entertaining

Down the St Peters Station end of King Street there’s a portal back in time to 1945. Venture inside and you’ll find yourself in somebody’s elegantly furnished study with tasteful wallpaper. Big band music plays quietly on the radio. An unfinished Scrabble game has been hastily abandoned in the corner. And there’s an old-school typewriter on the desk.

Welcome to Espionage, the debut escape puzzle at the Cipher Room. You and your co-players have just one hour to locate the secrets that Agent ‘M’ has hidden somewhere in the room. To find them, you’re going to have to look for clues, follow a bunch of hints and crack a bunch of codes. There’s no time to waste – enemy agents will arrive when the clock strikes 12.

The Cipher Room is a labour of love for its co-creators, Newtown locals Marise Watson and David Vella. Game designer Marise spent a year researching escape rooms around Australia and in New York before creating Espionage. Husband David is the builder who put together the room’s ingenious bits and pieces by hand. The two sourced furniture and props from the vintage furniture shops that lower King Street is famous for, which gives the game plenty of period atmosphere.

Time Out sent a trio of players to solve the room’s mysteries, but up to six people can play at once (and there’s plenty for all of them to do). We are provided with mini-torches, a pen and a notepad, which all come in very handy. We also get a walkie-talkie which buzzes to life a few times during the hour asking us if we would like a hint. We’re happy for the extra help: while some clues we’re able to pick up on immediately others are more challenging and the hints help keep the game moving along.

Several times during the hour we gasp with the pleasure of the discovery of something hidden. This is a game that has been cleverly conceived to provide a variety of tactile, visual and aural experiences. Also, unlike many escape rooms, the backstory actually informs the various puzzles you encounter as well as your ultimate goal – a lot of thought has gone into this. The Cipher Room’s second game room the Cabin, which has a serial killer theme, will launch at the end of 2016 – we can hardly wait.

Hens Treasure Hunt
http://henstreasurehunt.com.au/

Looking for an activity that will make everyone happy? It can be tricky sometimes. Not all guests are big drinkers, there may be the Mum of the bride to consider and some guests you don’t even know yet. But don’t panic! We can help take the pressure off. Here at Hens Treasure Hunt we have come up with a unique and fabulous hens party idea to suit everyone!

With 17 years of experience we know how to make a group of ladies happy, especially the hen. Our events aren’t overly physical, you can drink along the way if you like and there is nothing sleazy or embarrassing involved, just good, cheeky, girly fun!

Party at Home

Now you women can put all your sexiest dance moves together, get dressed up like you are ready for a shift at the Moulin Rouge and have one hell of a fun time. A Burlesque class is one of the most asked for Sydney hen day activities. The staff here are wonderful and will make certain to bring the shyest members of your hen group out of their shells. By the end of the session you will all be ready to put on the sexiest show in the land … … if you can stop laughing that is!

Classic Sleepover

Remember the days of staying up all night with your closest gal pals? Giggling, talking about boys, watching movies, eating as much junk food as humanly possible and generally having the BEST time? If your bride-to-be isn’t keen on hitting the town, but would rather spend some quality time with her friends – consider a good old fashioned sleepover – full of games, chick flicks, food and fun. To pull it off, fill your lounge room with mattresses, cushions, blankets, lollies, chocolates, dressing gowns, champagne, wine, board games, movies and more.

Clothes Swap Party

Inform guests’ that they are going to be taking part in a clothes swap party via their hens night or bridal shower invitations. Specify only clean clothes that are in good condition can be brought along (nobody wants your old rags!), and some sort of bag to carry your new party clothes home is also desirable. 

Once everyone has arrived at the party, hand each guests one token per item of clothing they have brought (in other words, if they have three items for the clothes swap, they receive three tokens in return). Once tokens have been given out and clothes have been placed around the venue for everyone to see, it’s time to get the party started!

Use a fair system (such as pulling numbers out of a hat) to decide who goes first, second, third, etc. and limit the number of items each guest can swap per turn to one or two (meaning those who don’t get to take part in the clothes swap until later will still have the chance to grab some nice outfits as not everything will be gone). 

This party is great fun in itself, however adding delicious food platters, wine and other beverages, a million photos, a couple of games to break up the event and, of course, some fashion shows with your new outfits is what makes it memorable!

Get Crafty in your Lounge Room

Get those creative juices flowing with a relaxing DIY activity in the comfort of your own home. Armed with a glass of bubbles and your imagination, surrounded by the chatter and giggles of close friends, it’s the perfect setting for making your very own masterpiece! Whether this activity is used to kick off celebrations or wind down after a huge day, kits (such as the Terracotta Mosiac Kit for 4, found at Dawdle Box) take the stress out of organising, whilst simultaneously adding a touch of fun and uniqueness to your party.

Hire A Venue

For some girls, a hens night has to be ritzy, flashy, and elegant. If your bride is one that likes to feel ruined and surrounded by glamour, a terrific hens night concept is to hire out an unique secret place in the CBD. There’s nothing more amazing than seeming like a superstar, and Sydney’s concealed venues offer you the possibility to seem like a VIP on your hens night. A hens party in a personal place suggests you and your women can celebration in privacy. Take control of the location for a night, make your women feel unique, and do what you require to do!

Creativity Comes Alive at The Muse in Surry Hills.
http://themuse.com.au

It seems everyone these days is looking for that extra special experience when it comes to planning an event. Our games have been lifted from the quality of food we’re buying to the drinks we’re serving. Finding that unique venue is just part of the wish list. Whether it’s a secluded beach for the ultimate picnic or a piece of undiscovered parkland to throw a luxe garden party. Forget the boring restaurant booking or clichéd backyard BBQ. We recently discovered The Muse in Surry Hills an amazing five-storey heritage listed building that’s been converted into a unique event space and co-working hub.

Built in the late 19th Century, throughout the Roaring 20s the building itself was once the bustling headquarters of The Chinese Republic Newspaper. Almost 100 years later, The Muse has transformed 74-76 Campbell Street into a secret lair of creativity for businesses and event organisers. A short walk from Central Station or the CBD The Muse is easily accessible to all.

Famed for constructing the aesthetic masterpiece The Grounds of Alexandria, the designers at ACME & Co have partnered with architect Vince Alafaci to devise a sophisticated, industrial hangout. Spread across four levels and a rooftop terrace The Muse is a “creative community” with something for everyone.

Nestled amongst planter boxes and warm festoon lighting, the rooftop at The Muse is just one of the spaces available for event hire. From intimate birthdays to work parties, the rooftop space is the ideal blank canvas for Sydney event curators.
