YOUR BACHELOR or bachelorette party is all about making memories before your big day. Whether you’re into games, exercise or full-fledged pampering, gather your squad for an unforgettable experience at one of these metro Detroit hotspots.


GO AXE THROWING, TOGETHER
Detroit Axe
hosts large parties for a truly memorable co-ed bachelor(ette) celebration. For $40 per person (up to 24), you get an axe-throwing training session, dedicated alleys for your group, and start-to-finish guidance from the Axe Masters themselves. After your two-hour event, you can also add a food package for your group, choosing from options like brisket sliders, salads and freshly made doughnuts. detroitaxe.com

GET BLOWOUTS BEFORE YOU GO OUT
Half the time, talking and getting ready with your girls is more fun than your actual night out. Get fully pampered at Birmingham’s Blo Blow Dry Bar. Whether you want an updo or a pin-straight look, eyelash extensions, nail service, a wax, or a head massage, everyone in your party can get whatever service makes them feel like a million bucks. Service prices range from $10 to around $60. blomedry.com

PLOT YOUR ESCAPE, TOGETHER
The Great Escape Room
in Royal Oak creates a one-of-a-kind memory for both bachelors and bachelorettes alike. Groups of six or more can take on a private escape room with different themes — from a scavenger hunt-style adventure in Sherlock Holmes’ Library to a 100-minute sprint to Escape the Colosseum. Throw a co-ed event to get as many minds working on an exit as you can. Prices range from around $26 to $38 per person. thegreatescaperoom.com

JOIN FORCES FOR A FRIENDLY DART WAR
All in good fun, enlist your best guy friends for a dart war at Detroit Dart. For 90 minutes, you’ll be divided into two teams for dart gameplay. The venue provides blasters, ammo, and protective glasses, but you’re encouraged to bring comfortable clothes, shoes, and snacks for a midway break; the game gets intense! And if you truly want a blast from your past in grade school, Detroit Dart now hosts dodgeball events, as well. Price is $300 for 12 players, and $15 per additional player after 12. detroitdartclub.com

LEARN POLE DANCING WITH YOUR GIRLS
There are tons of ways to feel sexy, and physical movement in the form of pole dancing is certainly one of ’em. Aerial Dragonfly Movement Studio in Ferndale is the perfect place to take your girls for a bachelorette celebration. Great for beginners who’ve never tried pole dancing, instructors guide you through routines and body movements. You can also sub Aerial Silks or Yoga if that type of class is more up your alley. Price is $200 for one hour and up to six guests, or $300 for 90 minutes and up to 12 guests. aerialdragonfly.com

VISIT THE TWO JAMES SPIRITS DISTILLERY
If an educational tour sounds more appealing than a wild night out to get your drink fix, take your crew to meet the folks at Two James Spirits in Corktown. You can toast with head distillers Joe Lordon and Terry Bishop for two hours as they guide you on a rare spirits and barrel tasting. Each guest gets a complimentary cocktail and snacks during the event, and they also get to leave with a signed bottle of liquor. Event price starts at $125 per person. twojames.com
