Gilroy Girlfriends' Getaway

Ladies, are you dreaming of a fun, relaxing weekend with your BFFs? Picture yourselves getting pampered at a beauty lounge, savoring a leisurely meal, shopping at your favorite stores, and sipping some wine next to the vines while listening to live music. You can enjoy all this and more on your girlfriends’ getaway to Gilroy!

Whether you are reconnecting with old friends, celebrating a birthday, or hosting a bachelorette or bridal shower weekend, Gilroy has some great places for you to enjoy a memorable getaway with your favorite ladies.

Spoil Yourselves at Flawless Beauty Bar

Plan a day of beauty or an event at Flawless Beauty Bar, a beauty treatment clinic in downtown Gilroy. Tucked into a cute little century-old house, this beauty lounge offers some fantastic treatments. Choose from a great variety of facials—including the popular BB Glow facial, micro-channeling, eyebrow and eyelash extensions, permanent make-up, waxing, and spray tanning.

You can also host your group of ladies for a special event at Flawless Beauty Bar. Book a “Beau-tea-ful” tea party, bridal shower, birthday party, or other special event in their beauty lounge, which is decorated “flawlessly” with a beautiful floral backdrop, accent tables, a gorgeous chandelier, and more.

If you book a tea party, you will enjoy tea sandwiches, desserts, and a variety of flavorful teas along with a mini hydra-facial. The staff will also work with you to customize your group gathering and even allow you to bring in your own refreshments.

Re-Connect & Re-Charge Over a Meal

You and the ladies in your group can take time to catch up over a meal at one of our many dining options in Gilroy. You can dine al fresco (seasonally) at a variety of restaurants and cafes around town. Enjoy some authentic Mexican food along the Gilroy Taco Trail and grab one Gilroy’s famous garlic dishes at one of restaurants along the Road to Garlic. If you enjoy a creative brew, stop in at one of our breweries or tap rooms. Several of our local restaurants downtown also offer live music, special events, and entertainment. Be sure to check our Events Calendar before you visit.

Take time to “wine” down at one or two wineries in the Gilroy area. Gilroy is part of the Santa Clara Valley Wine Trail, a region burgeoning with over 30 wineries. Choose a winery and style that fits your group best. From large, lushly landscaped wineries to charming boutique, family-owned vineyards, there really is something for everyone.
