Girls Night Out in Gastown

Start the night on an adventurous note by learning sexy moves at Tantra Fitness (314 Water St). Tantra Fitness provides a variety of bachelorette party packages with private classes in lap dance, pole dance, and more, for up to ten guests. You don’t have to be an expert! Classes are introductory and can be customized to your comfort level. You can even inquire about incorporating silks or the aerial hoop, if you prefer a more advanced challenge.

Another unique option is hosting your own pin up party at New World Beauty Bar (306 W. Cordova St) located inside New World Design. Reveal your inner diva and get properly primped by a professional clothing stylist, make up artist, and hairstylist from East Vanity Parlour. Commemorate your new look and strike a pose! New World Beauty Bar offers 1950’s glamour photo shoots with Pin-Up Perfection Photography.
