INDYtoday: INDY_Nexxus Movement pole bachelorette party_MAR24

Brace your wallets and get the tissues ready, people: Wedding season is nearly upon us. That also means you might find yourself roped into planning a bachelor or bachelorette party. If you’re hoping to stay in town and do something a little unique, here are a few ideas that make us want to say I do.

Nexxus Movement | 1315 Shelby St., Ste. 5
Brush up on your dance moves ahead of the big night with a pole, chair dance, twerk, or burlesque party at this fun, supportive studio. Customizable options include sashes, party themes, and a professional photographer. Just make sure you save the alcohol for after — for safety reasons, intoxicated guests won’t be allowed to participate.

The Pickled Pedaler | 602 Virginia Ave.
Traffic considerations aside, party bikes are a fun, cost-efficient way to enjoy some fresh air and libations with your friends. The Pickled Pedaler seats 14 passengers and is Indy’s only party bike with a state-of-the-art electric assist so you never run out of steam. BYOB in aluminum cans or plastic containers, bring some ice, and let the good times (slowly) roll.

INDYtoday: INDY_Penn and Beech candles shop_MAR24

You can rent out Penn and Beech’s entire shop or just book a table for your smaller group of friends.

Penn & Beech Candle Co. | Multiple locations
Looking for something a little more zen? Take your party to Penn & Beech, where each person can craft their own uniquely scented candle. You can rent out a private space or the entire shop; either option allows you to bring in all the decorations and food your heart desires. Don’t worry, drinks are still on the menu — you can order beer, wine, mimosas, and NA options directly from the shop’s staff.

Indy Acres Paintball | 7225 E. Raymond St.
This outdoor paintball arena is as exciting as they come, with a variety of obstacles and terrains for you to run, climb, and hide on. Groups of 10 or more can book the entire field for a private party, or you can simply join other players for a regular open session. You’re welcome to dress in costume and bring food for your party to enjoy, but alcohol isn’t allowed.

Have any other wild ideas? Let us know.

      We’ve all been there: Someone’s trying to give you directions by describing 10 lefts, 20 rights, and a jumble of cardinal directions. Isn’t it easier to just point out a landmark?

      That’s exactly what we’re doing. Not only are these local icons easy to remember, but they’ll also get you where you need to go in a jiffy.

      Soldiers and Sailors Monument

      Address: 1 Monument Cir.
      Nearby: Salesforce Tower, Christ Church Cathedral, The Columbia Club

      The iconic structure is only 15 ft shorter than the Statue of Liberty. When the observation deck is open, you can get a 360-degree view of the skyline.

      “Ann Dancing”

      Address: 401 Mass Ave.
      Nearby: Old National Centre, Needler’s Fresh Market

      When you’re trying to find someone on Mass Ave., it’s helpful to say how close you are to this recognizable piece by artist Julian Opie.

      From the editor
      Want a mini fitness challenge for spring? When the observatory reopens, take the stairs up to the top of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument instead of the elevator. After all 330 steps, your legs will be shaking — but you will have earned a treat from South Bend Chocolate Company across the street.
