Being a girl in Dubai has its perks. Almost everywhere ladies are looking at free entrance, free alcohol and they definitely don’t have to arrive with a certain amount of guys to be let through the door. However I'm just not the biggest fan of ladies nights in general. Why? because it generally goes hand in hand with cheap alcohol, over filled venues (slow service) and venues making a grab for your contact details so they can spam you to kingdom come with their latest offers and promotions in exchange for a few watered down cocktails. As with most things in life, if the product is free, then you are the product.
This being said I've narrowed down the list below to 5 Ladies Nights that are a quality evening out with the girls. These all have one thing in common: decent offers at hospitality venues that are actually worth taking the time to visit. What a concept. Click on the headings to check out their pages. Now enjoy!
If you follow my insta stories then you know that you'll find us here at least once or twice a week as this location really hits the spot. This gem is situated within the FIVE Hotel (where the Viceroy used to be) and has mouthwatering sushi and seafood dishes, awesome staff and the most amazing views of Dubai from Palm. Plus if you're looking for an excuse to take your latest Louis out to play, its not going to look out of place as the dress code is pretty glam, day and night. Every Tuesday from 6pm until 9:30 is Ladies Night where you'll receive three complimentary drinks but you'll probably be back within a few days and not mind paying full price.

Cove Beach Club
This legendary beach club was situated at the Jumeirah Hotel and relocated to Caesers Palace Blue Waters last year. It used to boast one of the best ever ladies nights offer and built up quite the following over the last few years and I'm happy to report that it’s just as good. Bigger and better without losing that feeling that its your home away from home. The offer is unlimited drinks and a food platter for AED 100 while you soak up the sun from a complimentary sunbed. Grab your girls and go. Its a must do. (Bookings on 050 454 3920)
If you havent been to At.mosphere before then Girrrl, you are missing out. It’s situated in the Burj Khalifa (need I say more about the views) and their ladies night offer is an absolute steal at AED 120 for a bottle of bubbly and canapes every day from 9:30 to midnight. (Bookings on 04 888 3828)
Situated in my second favorite area, this vibey restaurant feels like home and the decor is not too shabby either. If you're looking for a top class restaurant with divine Argentinian style steak then this is where you'll want to be. Their ladies night offer is the perfect way to start of the night before dinner with three free drinks and 50 percent off bar food every Saturday making it a great location for your weekly catch up with the crew.

Stars N Bars
Last on the list but my no means least, if you're in the mood for a more casual affair in a laid back beach style venue then Stars N Bars is for you. Situated in the highly instagrammable neighbourhood of La mer, you can expect expect a lively atmosphere complete with foosball tables, arcade games, gigantic portions of food and one of the best views of La Mer from the terrace. The ladies night offer is 3 drinks vouchers every Wednesday from 9pm until 1am. (Bookings on 04 349 9903).
