It’s the weekend – and it’s also ladies’ night, so we hope you’re in the mood for double celebrations.
There are some real corkers tonight, including unlimited drinks in a swanky Asian restaurant, low key bevs in a British watering hole, Italian feasting and free pool access to be enjoyed.
And best of all – there's a lie-in tomorrow morning.
The deal: unlimited drinks for Dhs99
There aren’t a huge amount of ladies’ nights that allow you to see out the end of the week with unlimited drinks, so this is a top choice if you’re looking for a post-work wind-down. The newly revamped Asian restaurant at Fairmont The Palm offers ladies free flowing drinks from 6pm until 9pm every Thursday in the lounge area of the venue. If you’re peckish, you can also order up some nibbles such as crispy duck buns or tuna tacos. It's a good start to the weekend if you’re in the area.
Thu 6pm-9pm. Fairmont The Palm, Palm Jumeirah (04 457 3457).
The deal: Two free drinks
An American-style pub modelled on that of US ’80s sitcom Cheers (you know, where everyone knows your name), it’s a compact space with an island bar taking centre stage where you’ll get two free drinks between 8pm and midnight. With low ceilings, dark lighting and all-round snugness, it’s cosy, but that old-school bar smokiness can make it feel a little claustrophobic at times. However, if it’s bargain drinks and a no-frills, authentic pub vibe you seek, you’ll be hard-pressed to do better in Satwa.
Tue & Thu 8pm-midnight. Satwa (04 345 5888).
The deal: Three free drinks
This long-standing Downtown pub has everything you could ever want from a classic British watering-hole and its ladies’ night offers up three free drinks. It’s not one for a chic night out, but it's the perfect spot for a laid-back drink. A healthy dose of nostalgia comes in the form of pop memorabilia from David Bowie as well as The Beatles, adorning the entrance wall, while the stained glass windows will remind Brits of local pubs back home.
Thu 8pm-10pm. Roda Al Murooj, Downtown Dubai (04 321 1111).
The deal: Four drinks and a main course for Dhs99
Head to this Italian restaurant and you’ll get four free drinks, a main and views of the Burj Khalifa. Dishes are fresh and tasty, and include pizzas and pastas. For a laid-back ladies’ night in Downtown, this is well worth a visit.
Dhs99. Wed 6pm-11pm. Manzil Downtown, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, Downtown Dubai (04 242 7882).
The deal: Free pool access and unlimited frozen grape or three free drinks and free pampering
Head to V Deck at V Hotel on a Thursday and you’ll get free pool access, a complimentary towel and sunbed, plus free-flowing frozen grape between noon and 5pm. If you’re heading down after the daily grind, ladies can enjoy three free drinks and pampering at rotating stations including mini massage, manicures and pedicures.
Free. Thu noon-5pm and 5pm-11pm. V Hotel Dubai, Curio Collection by Hilton, Al Habtoor City (04 435 5577).
