The Beach House at Anantara The Palm Resort & Spa The deal: Unlimited bubbles for Dhs50 Pull up a chair at this (as the name suggests) beachside Mediterranean spot, which faces inwards to take in the views of the magnificent villas on the Palm Jumeirah’s fronds. Named Sparkle in the Sand, this night not only promises unlimited bubbles for under Dhs100, but the first 50 ladies also receive a silky pouch containing a gem. While most are glass replicas, each week one lady walks away with a genuine stone (head to the hotel’s Dhamani store before 10pm to check whether yours is real). Sadly, we’re yet to pick up a gem, but we’re keen to return to this relaxing spot nonetheless. Tue 8pm until late. Palm Jumeirah (04 567 8304).
Q43 at Media One Hotel The deal: Three free selected beverages Arrive early enough at this Ladies Don’t Q night (which starts at 6pm sharp, to meet the needs of those who like to hit the town straight from work) and you’ll secure yourself and your girlfriends a table for the evening. Choose from grapes, bubbles or signature mixed drinks to sip while you take in the venue’s great views from the 43rd floor. Tue 6pm until late. Dubai Media City (04 443 5403).
Tabla at Grand Millennium Hotel The deal: Free-flowing Russian beverages A funky night spot with cool contemporary décor. Entering through a woodland-themed room, complete with a giant tree, the bar opens up to reveal a spacious, lively nightclub. With tiered seating and tables, even though there’s no specific dancefloor the trendy crowd gets down to the R&B and hip-hop beats wherever they find a space around the U-shaped bar. Once the party gets going, around 1am, a performer with bongo drums adds some grooves to the music, and bartenders perform fire-breathing tricks. Tue 10.30pm-3am. TECOM (04 429 9999).
Sake no Hana at Souk Al Bahar The deal: Three free mixed drinks, plus discounted drinks afterwards Head to this slick Japanese hangout for the new weekly Sake Sisters night, where ladies are presented with vouchers for three free selected mixed drinks upon arrival. Once your tokens are finished, there are a range of beverages available for a discounted Dhs40 (not exactly bargain prices, but at least it’s something). Throughout the night, while the DJ spins cool beats, guests are treated to delightful performances by ladies in Geisha-inspired costume. Tue 6pm until late. Souk Al Bahar (04 432 7808).
Societe at Marina Byblos Hotel The deal: Three free mixed drinks This late-night retro freebie for ladies doesn’t kick off until 10pm and the place was all but empty during our visit, with just a few random stragglers standing on the sidelines – and not many of them ladies. Three chits on entry entitle the fairer gender to tumbler-sized free mixed drinks, and even though the night promises a ’90s and ’00s affair, the DJ was instead pumping out ’70s disco when we arrived. Unfortunately, the usual TVs screening old-school music videos are all sadly switched off leaving the place devoid of atmosphere. Must try harder. Tue 10pm until late. Dubai Marina (04 448 8222).
