Ultimate Girls’ Get-Together

Ultimate Girls’ Get-Together




Whether your group is game to find a new gear by booking a pedal-powered Elm City Party Bike to see the city or would rather gather to share a leisurely stroll among the masterpieces at Yale University Art Gallery, get ready for an ultimate girls’ get-together exploring The Shops at Yale! Enjoy shopping, dining, entertainment, and more in the heart of the Historic Chapel Street and Broadway Districts.



Come together on a day that works for everyone, or set a date to dive into the vibrant pulse of the city during events like the International Festival of Arts and Ideas in June, or the New Haven Grand Prix & APizza Feast, a twilight cycling race and pizza festival in September.



Where to begin? It all depends on your vibe! Get in a group workout session at Strength Haven Athletics, make a morning stop at Fussy Coffee for expertly crafted coffee and wholesome breakfast plates, or start your day off elevating your style with side-by-side appointments at Shiana Hair. Then, it’s off to expand your retail therapy skills at beautiful shops like More Amour Boutique, idiom Boutique, Lou Lou Boutique, Raggs for Men & Women, dwell New Haven, and Soap-edi, where uniquely curated collections offer one-of-a-kind finds.



Next, we’ve got the answer to that eternal question: lunch or brunch? For a quick pick-me-up, try a protein-packed bowl at B Natural Kitchen or savor the refreshing flavors of acai bowls from Pedals Smoothie & Juice Bar. For a celebratory Sunday brunch with your besties, gather around the table at Sherkaan Indian Street Food or Heirloom at The Study at Yale.



Hit a high note on your time together by planning on seeing a live concert or spectacular show. Get your tickets for live music at Westville Music Bowl, Connecticut’s newest outdoor music venue, situated directly on the Yale Campus, or go to the heart of downtown New Haven’s arts and entertainment district on College Street for more performance options. See premiere concerts, amazing artists, or exciting events at College Street Music Hall or select Shubert Theatre for Broadway series shows, special events, and performances.



As the sun sets, it’s time to savor a special meal and make a toast to friendship. For some festive fun, share in sangria or make it a Mojito party at Pacifico and enjoy fine fare including extraordinary Nuevo-Latino seafood and traditional tapas. Or gather at Harvest Wine Bar & Restaurant, where the welcoming elegance and unique charm inside (and unique seasonal stone patio seating outside) are matched by wines from around the world and modern American custom cuisine with Asian, Latin, and Mediterranean influences. Looking for laid-back? Get together with the girls at South Bay or Villa Lulu, and don’t miss out on the lively energy of Anchor Spa.  Finally, as you stroll the sidewalks together to wrap up the night, stop in Arethusa Farm Dairy for a hand-crafted ice cream – you’ve earned it!
