Delray Beach offers plenty to do and sights to see with friends, day or night. And, when you need a break from the kids and the SO, it’s really the perfect place for a fun girls night out… or a whole day for that matter!
Here’s just one itinerary we recommend – but of course there’s an unlimited number of fun options.
Our plan: Grab your BFFs and head over to East Atlantic Avenue for hours of fun, starting with a well-deserved stop for pampering at one of the area’s finest spas. You’ll make your way to a few stops and end with drinks at Delray Beach’s oldest cocktail bar.
Stop 1: Seagate Spa
The Seagate Spa isn’t exclusively for hotel guests; book yourself and a couple of girlfriends in for an afternoon of luxury and pampering, including a decadent massage and a mani/pedi.
The Seagate’s 8,000-square-foot spa is located inside the Seagate Hotel at 1000 East Atlantic Avenue and offers a complete range of massage, skin care and body treatments. It’s the perfect retreat for young professionals, busy moms, and women in need of relaxing and invigorating spa experience. Going with friends just makes it more fun!
Don’t forget to pack your bathing suit. A perk of booking at the Seagate Spa is all-day access to the hotel pool, jacuzzi, pool bar, tranquillity room and steam room. You could even come early for a workout in the fitness center.
The Seagate Spa is open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Request an appointment online at www.theseagatehotel.com/spa-fitness.
Stop 2: Blue Gallery
There’s no better way to spend an hour or two with friends than at one of the finest art galleries in Delray Beach. Located at 600 East Atlantic Avenue you’ll find Blue Gallery, where contemporary art comes alive.
Blue Gallery features original collections from internationally-acclaimed artists, including Lenner Gogli, Iris Eshet Cohen and Marcus Botbol. You’ll discover awe-inspiring pieces of landscapes, abstracts, semi-realistic, realistic, and figurative styles all under one roof. And if you decided to add one of Blue Gallery’s beautiful pieces to your personal collection, the friendly and knowledgeable staff will even help you install it perfectly in your space.

Stop 3: The Old Arcade
What girls night would be complete without a stop for cocktails? For something a little offbeat, we like The Old Arcade, Delray Beach’s first and only Speakeasy bar, built in 1925 and kept secret until the end of Prohibition.
Tucked in behind Caffe Martier, The Old Arcade is a vintage-style bar serving classic cocktails with an updated twist ranging from price for $12 to $15. The bar boasts great ambience and talented mixologists who specialize in craft cocktails. The Resolution #9 is a fan favorite.
Visit The Old Arcade’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/theoldarcade) for a complete menu of restoratives, and make sure you enter through the back alley, especially if it’s your first visit. This secret bar can be tricky to find otherwise, but worth the effort.
We hope you enjoy this suggested itinerary! We are always up for a good GNO, so let us know your favorite ladies night destinations in Delray Beach!
