Been given the task of planning your girlfriends Hen’s Night? Here’s a list of the top suggestions to help you organise a memorable day for your friend. Get super organised and knock out a few of these top 10 Hen’s Night ideas!
1. Champagne Breakfast
People often make plans well in advance so the brekky option is especially good on short notice as most people will be available. Keep it casual and pick your favourite cafe for a relaxed beginning to the day or pick a venue such as Saldechin on King William Rd in the Adelaide CBD to host your morning spread. Keep in mind it is breakfast and it could be a long day ahead so go easy on the champagnes!
If you have a strict budget to stick to or fancy yourself as a bit of a chef then why not host it at someone’s home? Crepes, french toast or bacon (or chorizo!) and eggs are all easy options to cater for guests. Set up a mimosa bar to kick start everyone’s day but make sure you remember to have a few non-alcoholic drinks for those who don’t or can’t drink.
2. Cocktail Bartender
It’s becoming more and more popular to entertain at home for Hen’s Nights. Get a professional cocktail bartender to cater for the night. Everything can be taken care of for you; from the cocktail menu to the late night clean up! Find someone that is highly experienced in making cocktails to make sure you have a smooth night and that all the guests will love every cocktail. Do something a little different and drink from dainty little milk bottles (as pictured) or quirky jam jars.

3. Wine Tour
As long as you don’t mind paying for a bus, you can book a full day venturing from winery to winery. Adelaide has numerous wine regions close by: Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale, Barossa, etc. These three wine regions are all close enough to get 4-5 wineries under your belt before having to call it a day. Make sure to book somewhere for lunch and take advantage of the region’s local produce. Check out some of South Australia’s Best Wineries.
4. Pole Dancing
Check out The Pole Boutique for a selection of group packages perfect for a Hen’s Day in Adelaide.
The Pole Boutique has 10 poles meaning more time on the pole and less time to share!
5. Ladies Pub Golf
The ladies pub golf is pretty much a more acceptable daytime pub crawl 🙂 you will need to pick a ‘course’ (9 or 18 local bars), print some scorecards, find your uniforms and you are good to go. Check out the pub golf rules.
6. Spa Day

7. Hotel Getaway
Stay in a hotel room for the night, preferably somewhere close to a few venues so you can have a few drinks and dinner before ‘retiring’ to the room. A hotel will be suitable for smaller numbers. A few bottles of champagne and a cheese platter will be enough to keep everyone happy upon returning to the room. Look at staying in the heart of the city, somewhere such as the Hotel Richmond which also has a bar and restaurant with amazing desserts!
8. Hire a Limousine
Perfect way to start an evening off. An hour long cruise with a few champagnes will kick start the night and get everyone in the partying mood! There are several companies in Adelaide that specialise in premium Hummer Limo services and Hen’s Night Packages.
Check out HummerSA for their available packages.
9. Theme Night
A theme can be incorporated into any Hen’s Night plans. Pick a theme and make sure that everyone gets involved! Masquerade, Hawaiian, Burlesque, Polka Dot, Toga, Bunnies – just to mention a few!
10. Scavenger Hunt
A scavenger hunt (complete with clues and a treasure map) doesn’t have to be a childish event! The prizes can be as grown-up or risque as you like; prizes such as bottle of bubbles, massage vouchers, etc. Use someone’s house and put a few heads together to get creative!
