5 Ways To Celebrate Galentine’s Day in 2023

Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas.

It’s the best day of the year! Traditionally, Galentine's Day celebrates female friendship on February 13th. I think you can pick any day you like to honor your friendships of all genders.

Here's a list of Memphis girl's night ideas and group activities in 2023!

*whispers* these ideas would make great dates also, and will probably appear on a date idea list soon but let’s pretend no one heard that

5 Ways To Celebrate Galentine’s Day In Memphis

1. Brunch

The traditional meal of Galentine’s Day is breakfast or brunch. While you have many options in Memphis, here are a few I specifically recommend for this auspicious holiday. 

Make reservations.

2. Attend a Galentine’s Day Event 

Sure, some of these count as regular Valentine’s events too, but they sounded particularly fun for girl groups.

 2023 Valentines Sip & Paint + Karaoke Night 
There are tons of Sip and Paint events going on year round. This one happens to be specifically for Valentine’s Day. Enjoy all you can drink wine, a full course meal, photo shoot, and so much more.

Candles, Cupcakes & Cocktails: Galentine's Day Edition
Grab your gal-friend for an evening of candle makin’, cupcake eatin’, and cocktail sippin’.

Heartbreakers Burlesque Returns to Rockhouse Live
A Burlesque show with your girls? Count me in! The ladies of Memphis Burlesque Productions will make you fall in love with vaudeville.

Ladies Singer & Song Writer Night at Ghost River Brewing
We love to support our ladies behind the mic! Head to Ghost River's Beale tap room on Saturday to hear some incredible performers, enjoy a special Valentine's Day ale, and make friendship bracelets!

Stock and Belle Galentine's Day Party
From DIY heart sunnies to disco drink tumblers, you and your gal pal are sure to have lots of fun making memories together.

Galantine's Day Celebration
Celebrate your girls at Loflin Yard with romcoms and half priced wine and cheese boards.  

Valentine's Plant and Sip Social
This is for the ladies with a green thumb (if you have a numb thumb, you can learn lots at this event as well!) You’ll have hors d'oeuvres and beverages while learning proper caretaking of cacti and succulents. Then, you’ll arrange your own plants in a heart-shaped planter—how cute!

Duo Day 2023
Head over to TONE and toast champagne, take photos, and get tattooed with your gal-friend. This isn’t only for the girlies, make it a date with your boo!

Galentine's at Indigo Memphis
Grab your girlies and head to Indigo on February 11 from 3-6 p.m. for their Galentine's Day event featuring giveaways, sweet treats, and a permanent jewelry pop-up with GoldnCo who specializes in diamond charms.

3. Room For Activities!

I’m big on activities. This is for the “there’s nothing to do but eat and drink” crowd. 

Throw Axes

I like this idea so much—bonding over throwing weapons. You have a few options.

  • Craft Axe - This downtown location is next to the Slider Inn and has a fun beer wall.
  • Civil Axe - The Broad Ave. axe-throwing location is connected to Rec Room.
  • Autobahn Axe - Throw axes in the go-kart place! Or race the karts, while you’re at it.

Rage Room

As far as I know, the only “rage room” in town is CRAZE. They're hosting a fun Galentine's Day event with drinks, smashing items, canvas painting, and much much more. You'll probably see me here, so say heeyy!

4. Get Drinks 

A reliable plan whatever the occasion: cocktails and mocktails. For this list, I’m thinking cute, fun cocktail bars.

If it has a (*) you will need a reservation, but it would not hurt to call ahead to the other spots.

5. Take a Class

The perfect opportunity to take the gals to a fun, educational crafty class.
