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

3. Room For Activities!

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

Afternoon Tea Time

Enjoy an authentic Afternoon Tea with your gals.

Permanent Jewelry + Shopping

Host a permanent jewelry get together or a private shopping party.

Rage Room

  • CRAZE is Memphis' only rage room!

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.

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.

Don’t miss out on all the Memphis goodness!

Hello! I'm Jalyn Souchek, the Director of Content for I Love Memphis Blog! I love calling the 901 home. When I'm not running the blog you can find me cheering on the Grizzlies, at a concert, exploring a new restaurant or kicking back at one of our breweries. I hope you'll love experiencing Memphis with me.

Build your perfect Memphis meal:

I love to eat so if I were to have only one meal left.. I’m going all out. I’d start with an app of Gumbo Fries from Blue City Cafe or Bayou Fries from Chef Tam, wings from Good Fortune or Central’s (honey gold and Jamaican Jerk), potato salad from Fat Larry’s, side of bbq spaghetti from Bar-B-Q Shop, and fried okra from Soul Fish. All paired with a Beale Street Brewing Space Age Sippin’.

Your most memorable Memphis moment:

College GameDay on Beale Street. That was an electric and perfect morning. I was still working in news then and was able to take it in up close and on the stage at some points. The fun and joy of everyone down there that morning is unbeatable.
