It doesn’t matter whether you’re planning a bachelor, bachelorette, or co-ed party, Chandler can help you celebrate the upcoming nuptials with dinner, dancing, and more.  

SanTan Brewing Company

8 S. San Marcos Place
Chandler, AZ 85225
(480) 917-8700

One of the most popular breweries in the state, SanTan Brewing Company is a great option for a laid-back bachelor or bachelorette party or the perfect way to kick off an evening of festivities. Start with dinner. Entrées range from pizzas, salads, and burgers to fish and chips, pork enchiladas, and smoked beef briskets. Wash your meal down with a SanTan favorite brew like Mr. Pineapple or HopShock IPA, or try one of their seasonal offerings. Guest brews, cider, and wine are also available. 

Rooftop brews: The Perch, a nearby brewery in downtown Chandler, has a rooftop that can be rented for special events and parties.

Bourbon Jack’s 

11 W. Boston St.
Chandler, AZ 85225
(480) 664-1738

You don’t have to be a country music fan to kick up your heels on the dance floor or a bourbon aficionado to toast the groom (or bride) at Bourbon Jack’s, but if you are either, you won’t find a better place to party in the Valley. This “urban country bar” features live music Wednesday through Saturday and a full drink menu, including flavored vodkas, in addition to more than 200 bourbons and whiskies. Come hungry for ½-pound hamburgers, ribs, steaks, BBQ chicken, and nine different dinner salads. 

D'Vine Bistro & Wine Bar 

3990 S. Alma School Rd.
Chandler, AZ 85248
(480) 782-5550

Wine lovers will love an evening at D’Vine Bistro & Wine Bar, where they can sip selections from around the world while enjoying bruschetta, cheese platters, and hearty entrées like braised short ribs and then listen to live music Tuesday through Saturday nights. Even though D’Vine is known for its wine selection, it also has an extensive beer menu and one of Chandler’s best mixology programs. 

Another option: The Keg also has a great wine selection and upscale menu, minus the live music, making it a good choice if you want to be able to talk to the bride and/or groom. 

Wild Horse Pass Casino

5040 Wild Horse Pass Blvd.
Chandler, AZ 85226
(800) 946-4452

There’s no shortage of party options at Wild Horse Pass Casino. For starters, you can test your luck at the 956 slots and 65 gaming tables and then take in a show in the casino’s showroom. (Past shows have ranged from country music artists Clint Black to comedian Sinbad and mixed martial arts contest.) Or, dance the evening away at Chrome Nightclub on Friday and Saturday nights. The casino is also a short drive from Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park, which holds Friday Night Drags and racing events on its multiple road courses. 

Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving

20000 S. Maricopa Road, Gate #3
Chandler, AZ 85226
(800) 842-7223

Founded by race car driver Bob Bondurant, this school teaches advanced driving skills in high performance cars such as the Camero SS, Challenger Hellcat, and open cockpit Fomula Mazda racecar. Your party can sign up for an existing course or work with the staff to create a custom event. The school also has kart racing classes. (You must be at least 16 years old and have a valid driver’s license to participate in the high performance driving classes and 18 years old to participate in the racing classes. Kart classes are available for those 8 years old and up.)

ImprovMania

250 S. Arizona Ave.
Chandler, AZ 85225
(480) 699-4598

Fill your Friday or Saturday night with laughter at ImprovMania. The one-hour, interactive comedy show is fueled by audience suggestions, so what you see on stage is new every time. Attend the 7 p.m. show multi-generational appropriate content and the 9 p.m. show for an “unfiltered” experience. 

Tip: Begin your party with dinner at one of the downtown Chandler restaurants such as Crust, DC Steak House, or Modern Margarita

Uptown Art

1900 W. Germann Rd.
Chandler, AZ 85286
(480) 813-8059

Create your own masterpiece at an Uptown Art bachelorette (or co-ed) party. You pick a painting for the group to paint, and they provide instruction, paint supplies, and canvases. Daytime parties start at $25 per person with a 12 person minimum ($35 per person with a 35 person minimum for evening). Chandler-based Painting with Canvas also provides instruction and supplies to complete a painting but will come to your home ($35 per person with a 10 person minimum). 

Pottery: If you’d rather paint on pottery than on canvas, you can hold a party at Burst of Butterflies Create and Paint Studio (from $12 per person, 10 person minimum). The studio allows you to bring your own beer or wine. 

Alamo Drafthouse

4955 S. Arizona Ave.
Chandler, AZ 85248
(520) 213-8129

Alamo Drafthouse isn’t your typical movie theater. Sure, it has nine screens for new releases, family movies, and independent films, but it also serves entrées made with locally-sourced ingredients, local craft beers, and adult milkshakes to enjoy while you watch the show. Visit the website before you go to reserve your seats and arrive early for the pre-show of cartoons and shorts (instead of the typical advertisements). The best part? Alamo has a strict no calls, no text, and no talking rule and won’t seat latecomers.   

The Brickyard Downtown

85 W. Boston St.
Chandler, AZ 85225
(480) 963-1373

If your group is into craft cocktails, head to The Brickyard Downtown. The cocktail “ledger” is divided into three categories: classic cocktails, seasonal creations, and the Brickyard Hall of Fame. Plus, you’ll find 15 pages of liquors and house-made scrubs and syrups you can challenge the mixology staff to combine into a one-of-a-kind cocktail. The Brickyard specializes in small plates for sharing. 

More cocktails: The Ostrich, located directly below Crust, crafts classic and historic cocktails. In fact, the mixologists here take cocktails so seriously they handcraft their own ice and make their own soda water from a jerk.
