What does "Bacchanal" mean?

CONTEXT (it's a lot but please read :))

That's a quite complex translation for you so I hope you'll manage through reading this and help me!
I'm watching "the magicians" tv show, and for those who don't know this show, I'll explain the situation in which the word Bacchanal was said.
The god Dionysus (aka bacchus) appears as one of the characters in the show.

SPECIFIC CONTEXT: God Bacchus appears as a fun guy who likes to party a lot.
There's a part when he (Bacchus) hides his identity and runs away, and one of his friends look for him.
The friend then arrives to a party which Bacchus's at, and askes a girl he knows where Bacchus is.
Their convo goes:
Friend: I'm here to see Bacchus.
Girl: I don't know what you're talking about.
Friend: "Bacchanal" is the word you're looking for. Cut the crap, it's me, Josh, from that party.

Now is the question - what does "Bacchanal" mean in this context?

I've looked online and found plenty of meanings but none seemed to fit exactly.
Please enlighten me, thank you!
