Mondays can sometimes be a bit blue, but there’s no need for ladies to have a long face (sorry lads). There’s plenty of ladies’ nights (and days) going on across the city today to lift those spirits, whether you fancy going for a splash around at Barasti or a swing from the chandeliers at Cavalli (metaphorically, of course). See below for five of the best ladies’ nights in Dubai tonight to dispel any lingering January gloom.
The deal: 50 percent off drinks and one free welcome drink
Expect the no-frills fun that we’ve known to come and love from the beachside hangout, where ladies get free pool and beach access, free-flowing pink frozen grape, 50 percent off the food and beverage menu and 50 percent off water sports. We recommend getting down early for this one as sun loungers are snapped up fast.
Sun-Tue 10am-10pm. Barasti, Le Méridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, Al Sufouh (04 318 1313).
The deal: Unlimited free drinks and three courses for Dhs150
For a glamorous ladies’ night you can’t go wrong with Cavalli. The cool club, from fashion designer Roberto Cavalli, is super-trendy and fun-loving. Drinks are unlimited – and free – and if you’re after a meal then you’ll get three courses for a bargain Dhs150 (think plenty of sushi etc). There’s music from DJ Jack and the night gets livelier as the hour gets later. Put on your dancing shoes.
Dhs150 (three courses). Mon 8.30pm-midnight. Fairmont Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road (050 991 0400).
The deal: Four free drinks
The perfect ladies’ night for throwing on your Converse and jeans, McGettigan’s JLT is relaxed and casual with a lively vibe where you can really let your hair down. Ladies get four free drinks and there’s also a ladies’ only menu that you can get stuck into at bargain prices. Make a night of it with the in-house DJ and join the scrum on the dancefloor.
Mon 6pm-10pm. McGettigan’s JLT, Bonnington Jumeirah Lakes Towers, JLT (04 378 0800).
The deal: Three free drinks
If Nobu’s bar normally feels rather awkward and empty, it’s anything but on Mondays’ Nobu Noir night. A truly mixed crowd turns out, while ladies get three free mixed drinks – including the restaurant’s signature lychee concoction. There are also tapas-style bites available to order (chargeable) from a limited menu.
Mon 8.30pm-11pm. Atlantis The Palm, Palm Jumeirah (04 426 2626).
The deal: three free drinks
This trendy spot at Dubai Marina offers up a great ladies’ night on a Monday. You’ll get three free drinks, including sparkling, which you can drink in the comfortable upstairs lounge overlooking the Marina. It’s not valid in the dining room, which is a bit of a shame, but from 9pm staff will wander around serving up mini Latin American bites, to stave off any hunger. The venue is cool and classy, and attracts a well-heeled crowd, and the vibe is upbeat and fun. A glam ladies’ night that is good for a catch up in the early part of the week.
Mon 7pm-11pm. Grosvenor House Dubai, Dubai Marina (04 317 6000).
