4 Fun & Unique Ways to Celebrate Your 21st Birthday

Twenty-one is a big milestone…you’ve made it through the first two decades of your life and you’re finally allowed to (legally) drink. Southern California has SO many great bars and restaurants that serve great local beer, specialty cocktails, and feature awesome live music to get your night going right. It’s almost inevitable that you’ll end up drinking a little more than you bargained for that night, but instead of starting off the night by walking bar to bar, we’ve rounded up our four favorite 21st birthday party ideas.

1. Party Bikes!

You’ll get to pedal around your city with up to sixteen of your favorite friends and explore some of the neighborhood’s best bars. Not only do we have great partnerships set up with our friends at these bars (a.k.a., you’ll save some cash this way), you’ll make memories you *hopefully* won’t forget. Social Cycle party bike tours are a great way to kick the night off right in a unique way that will be the envy of your already-twenty-one friends who didn’t have a cool party like this.

2. Food Tours

You’re going to be consuming some alcohol that night, that’s why you’re going out! Get the celebration started with a food tour around the city and give yourself a little bit of food in your stomach for when those nice strangers at the bar start buying you shots.

3. Bartending Class

Chances are, you couldn’t make a classy cocktail before this day. Not because you’re not classy, but because you were limited to the cheap alcohol your friends would bring over to your house. Vodka and Country Time Lemonade? Done. But that’s all changed! You have entered into the real legal world where you can freely spend $100 on quality liquor, grab some bitters, and even learn what muddling means.

4. Wine Tasting

Turns out there’s more to wine than red or white, who knew! Now that you can drink *all* the varietals, visit a local vineyard and learn how to tell the difference of how it smells on the nose and tastes on the palate.
