Time Out Dubai staff
Every week we put together the city’s best deals for ladies’ nights, so you and your mates can see the week out in style. Here are 12 megadeals, meaning you don’t have to spend a Dirham if you don’t want to.
Tuesday: Publique The Souk Madinat Jumeirah’s vibrant bar and restaurant has just opened its brand new ladies’ night which it claims will be filled with cheeky, French, fun.
