1. Girls’ Night with a Pop at Just Pop In!

Twin sisters Mandy and Carly have crafted a perfect gem nestled in the heart of Broad Ripple. Just Pop In! is your spot for all things girls’ day out—from wine flights with popcorn pairings to perfect lighting, pop in and enjoy a delicious lunch with your besties. They even have a private event space for bridal showers, special gatherings and more.

2. Wine + Dine at Tastings

A wine vending machine with a card you can reload? Sign me up! Tastings is located downtown near Monument Circle and is a great spot for a unique girls’ night. Sample from more than 200 varieties of wine by exploring the tasting stations and considering what notes and flavors you like. Next, load your card with money and choose a pour size. You can keep the night going by trying any kind of wine or take home a bottle to enjoy.


3. Besties Who Brunch at The Oakmont

Because a girls’ night is not complete without a next-day brunch. At The Oakmont, split a pancake ‘charcuterie’ board that includes pancakes, bacon, fresh fruit, Nutella spread, and more with friends over delicious and refreshing mimosas before hitting Mass Ave to shop and explore.

4. Life is Sweet at SoChatti

Spend an evening with your friends doing one of the most unique things in the city—a chocolate candy-making class at SoChatti. Try the wine and chocolate pairing class and enjoy learning all about the different varieties and flavors of chocolate available and take some home with you to try your hand at it after class.


5. Charmed Life: Permanent bracelets + charm necklaces at Francis + Fern

Nothing says friendship like matching friendship bracelets! Make things permanent and get zapped at Francis + Fern before a night out on Mass Ave with bracelets or necklaces. They also recently just started offering charm necklaces as part of their permanent jewelry services—choose from a variety of charms that represent your friendship best, or make one to give to a friend later!

6. Boot Scootin’ Besties at 8 Seconds Saloon

Grab your boots and besties for a night of line dancing at 8 Seconds Saloon on the west side of town. They offer lessons from a professional every Wednesday night around 8:30 p.m. and if you’re in your cowgirl era, you can attempt mechanical bull riding.

7. Views and Vibes at The Cannon Ball Lounge

Sip and savor handcrafted cocktails and take in the views at downtown Indy’s only true rooftop bar (within Mile Square), The Cannon Ball Lounge. This luxurious nightlife experience is the perfect spot for a girls’ night —make it a full staycation with dinner on the first level at The Hulman and stay the night at Hotel Indy, a boutique Tribute Portfolio property.

8. Sipping + Secrets at Bocca + Verita

Dinner and drinks are at a new level at Bocca, a delicious Italian dining experience in the Fall Creek Place neighborhood. During the summer, their patio is the place to be (especially now that happy hours are a thing!), but be sure to make your way to the basement and explore Verita, the restaurant’s speakeasy.

9. In Bloom: Flowerboys

Building bouquets with your besties sounds like the perfect girls’ day! Head to Flowerboys in Fletcher Place to build a beautiful bouquet of blooms to take home, or check out their events schedule for other unique offerings and partnerships with local businesses around the city.


10. Pour It Up at Penn & Beech

There’s nothing more classic for a girls’ night than candle-pouring at Penn & Beech. Sniff your way through various scents before choosing three to four to pour into a vessel. Their expert team will help you if you need some inspo and provide the melted wax to pour. Sip on some bubbly or head to a local restaurant while you wait a few hours for your candles to set before picking them up.
