Five Ideas for a Great Girls Night Out


Here are some of my favorite ideas for a Girls Night Out.

1. Painting with a Twist-Bentonville and Fayetteville

Painting With A Twist is great fun and you don’t have to know anything about painting to have a blast. The hosting artist will give the class step-by-step instructions and it doesn’t matter if the outcome is a masterpiece. The idea is to have fun and explore the creative side!

You can pick your own painting from about 2,600 options when you schedule your party and the guests register and pay individually. They offer a cash bar at the location but you can get non-alcoholic drinks, too. You can usually bring in your own food but not your own drinks.

The Fayetteville location opened on College Avenue a few years ago and the Bentonville location opened more recently on SE Walton Boulevard. The links for both of those locations take you to the party planning page for the respective location. All parties must have a minimum of 12.

2. All Strung Out-Bentonville


Want to learn the art of jewelry making? All Strung Out offers classes and parties for all ages and it’s a perfect idea for a Girls Night Out.

Most of the classes include the basic tools and components needed to complete the project, but individuals will need to purchase their own beads at the store (some exceptions, just ask when you sign up). Payment for classes is due at least 24 hours prior to the start of the class. Payments can be made in person or over the phone.

All parties require a minimum of four attendees and can accommodate a maximum of 12. Parties are reserved in two-hour blocks, but if you need more time, let them know and they’ll be happy to work with you. Days, evenings or weekends are available, and you are welcome to bring in your choice of food and drinks.

You can choose your own project and an instructor will be available at the party to help guests complete their project within the scheduled party time.

3. Alternique-Rogers

Stepping through the doors at Alternique is an opportunity to experience, create and witness creativity. Right now the best way to learn more is through the store’s Facebook page. “It’s a multi-level creative experience,” owner Debra Barbee says. “You can shop, you can create, you can relax and enjoy, and you can have parties.”

The arts and crafts supply store is at 226-B S. 1st St. in historic downtown Rogers. Since opening in late 2013, Alternique has established itself as a truly unique experience both in its products and services, and the environment it fosters. The Art Space is available to rent for group gatherings like Girls’ Night Out, Moms’ Groups, Art Groups, birthday parties, and any other special occasion for grownups.

Contact Debra at (479) 899-6896 to learn more about the party and class options.

4. Golf Mountain Mini Golf-Lowell

Since August 2010, Golf Mountain Mini Golf has been the perfect location for events for all ages and purposes, including Girls Night Out. A beautiful walk among botanicals, fountains and other lush surroundings is perfect for a night of fun and beauty.

The 36-hole course is located in Lowell and features two practice greens as well as a pavilion that has Wi-Fi and a cooking grill for entertaining. The Sugar Shack Shaved Ice kiosk adds an added bonus to being outdoors after a round of golf. There is music throughout the grounds, all which are ADA accessible. Both Golf Mountain and the Sugar Shack are open seven days a week with extended weekend hours (See their website for their seasonal hours).

For more information, visit their website or call (479) 659-0001.

5. Fastlane Entertainment

When Fast Lane Entertainment opened in 2008, it was known as the “place where the big and little kids can play all day.” Not a lot has changed in that regard!
The 74,500 square foot facility includes a full-service restaurant that features “American casual” dining; a 22-lane bowling section; a 10-lane private boutique bowling area; a two-story interactive laser tag arena and an indoor go-karts track.
Fast Lane also offers:
• More than 120 arcade games;
• Atomic Rush (combines features of the classic game Simon with physical activity moving around a room);
• Laser Maze (game that has you crawl, straddle and duck under lasers);
• Four corporate meeting rooms; and
• Four party rooms.

You know, party rooms where you can have a Girls’ Night Out!

Fast Lane Entertainment uses a card system that allows users to easily travel between arcade games to the attractions, as well as keep track of the arcade game tickets that the cardholder earns during their visit. The Winner Circle redemption store features prizes that would appeal to both adults and youth.
