With low lounge chairs scattered around the large room and plush leather sofas around the edges, there’s plenty of space to sit, especially as it tends to be a bit on the quiet side. It’s nothing special, but if you’re in the Al Barsha area and after a quiet, no-frills bar for those post-work drinks, Bubbles Bar fits the bill.

The deal: two courses and a bottle of grape to share for Dhs195

For foodie ladies, Crazy Fish has a special deal that includes a two-course menu, plus a bottle of grape to share for just Dhs195 a person. Dishes include ceviche, catch of the day and lobster. If you don’t want to dine, you can still visit the bar – as you’ll get a glass of grape on the house.

MONDAY

Barasti
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.

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, Shaikh Zayed Road (050 991 0400).

Maxx Music Bar
The deal: Three free house beverages
Although ladies’ night is on a Monday at Maxx Music Bar in Barsha, you’d think it was the weekend because the crowd here really knows how to party. It’s absolutely bouncing right through until the early hours, with the live band pumping out tunes ranging from Bob Marley’s No Woman No Cry to I Gotta Feeling by the Black Eyed Peas. It’s a fairly small space and it’s absolutely packed when we arrive, with a somewhat middle-aged crowd throwing shapes on the dancefloor. Meanwhile, the rest of the customers crowd around standing-room-only tables. And we’re not surprised it’s so busy, because Maxx Music Bar is a proper party hotspot.
Mon 7pm-midnight. Citymax Hotel, behind Mall of the Emirates (050 100 7046).

McGettigans JLT
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.

Mon 6pm-10pm. McGettigan’s JLT, Bonnington Jumeirah Lakes Towers, JLT (04 378 0800).

Nobu
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 Stables
The deal: Five free drinks, food platter and jug of grape for Dhs99
Trot on down to The Stables on a Monday night for five mixed drinks from a selection of three concoctions whipped up especially for the occasion.

Armani/Prive
The deal:
Unlimited free drinks
Ladies get unlimited drinks at this swish super club between midnight and 2am. A super-swanky venue in the world-famous Burj Khalifa, Armani/Privé seems like the kind of place you’d totter across the likes of Beyoncé in your skyscraper heels. If you want to get your glad rags on and make a night of it to some hip-hop and R&B then Armani/Privé will most likely appeal.
Tue & Sun midnight-2am. Burj Khalifa, Downtown Dubai (04 888 3308).

Asia Asia
The deal: Three free drinks
If you’re after a classy ladies’ night with excellent views, don’t miss Asia Asia. A previous winner of our Best Ladies’ Night, this cool Asian eatery has top views of Dubai Marina and an upbeat vibe. Dress up for this one, it attracts a well-heeled crowd. Plus, you can have the drinks at the bar or over dinner. Undoubtedly the best offering in Pier 7, though you can venture to the other bars to make a night of it.

Axe House
The deal: Four free drinks
Ladies, you’ll get four free drinks between 5pm and midnight, and a two-for-one house beverages offer for all at the same time at this trendy, East London-style bar in JLT.

Barasti
The deal: 50 percent off drinks and one free welcome drink
You can guarantee a lively one at Barasti on any given night of the week and the Forbidden Fruit ladies’ night is no exception. Expect the no-frills fun that we’ve known to come and love from the beachside hangout, where ladies get half price drinks and a free drink on arrival. There’s also ladies’ day every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday 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.

BARBARY DELI + COCKTAIL CLUB
The deal: Unlimited free drinks
When you walk down the steps of its own entrance, it feels dramatic – it’s dark with bright neon signs welcoming you in. Inside, the cool vibes are obvious. It feels retro, with a hint of Dubai bling. But it’s New York-cool – the kind of place you’d expect to see hipsters in their droves. Ladies get unlimited grape and mixed drinks, too.
Tue 8pm-midnight. TRYP by Wyndham, Barsha Heights (04 247 6688).

BAR RUMBA
The deal: Unlimited free drinks and a hotdog
Tuesdays serve up free-flowing grape and bubbly to the ladies, plus don’t miss the hotdog stand where you can grab a classic free NYC-style snack. Unusual for a Chino-Latino bar, but we’re not complaining. 
Tue 7pm-11pm. The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street (04 511 7333).

Beefbar
The deal: two courses and a bottle of grape to share for Dhs195
This upmarket steakhouse from F1 supremo Flavio Briatore prides itself on quality meat. Not only that, it has 11 varieties of mashed potato on the menu. It’s pretty pricey, but on a Tuesday ladies can take advantage of a special deal, which will get you two courses from a special menu, plus a bottle of grape to share for Dhs195. It’s not the liveliest of venues, but for a top-notch meal at a bargain price, it’s a must for the foodies out there.
Dhs195. Tue 7pm-2am. Al Fattan Currency House, DIFC (04 352 2223).

Belgian Café, Grand Millennium Hotel
The deal: Three free drinks
Enjoy a bustling and jovial Belgian vibe while sipping on three free drinks every Tuesday and Saturday at the Grand Millennium Hotel branch of this popular watering hole. We recommend getting stuck into some Belgian bites while you’re here, with wings, mussels and steaks all gracing the menu.
Tues & Sat 9pm-1am. Grand Millennium Hotel, Barsha Heights (04 423 4170).

Boca
The deal:
One free drink and 20 percent off food
Get a free mixed drink between 6pm and 9pm and 20 percent off the bill thereafter if you have dinner. The laidback, funky restaurant and bar has plenty of Mediterranean bites and is a good spot for post-work drinks in DIFC.
Tue 6pm-9pm. Gate Village 6 DIFC (04 323 1833).

Boston Bar
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. It runs on Thursdays, too.
Tue & Thu 8pm-midnight. Satwa (04 345 5888).

Cargo

The deal: Three free drinks
Cargo is a bustling ladies night, largely due to the fact that the whole of Pier 7 throws open its doors and lays on offers for the females on a Tuesday. Ladies get three free drinks including house grape and mixed drinks, though you might have quite a wait at the bar here. Persevere and you’ll be rewarded with a buzzing atmosphere and stunning views across the marina from the sprawling terrace. One for a party crowd, it gets pretty busy.
Tue & Fri 8pm-2am. Pier 7, Dubai Marina (04 361 8129).

Double Decker
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 for a laid-back drink you’d do worse. 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 locals back home.
Tues 8pm-midnight; Thu 8pm-10pm. Al Murooj Rotana, Downtown Dubai (04 321 1111).

Fümé
The deal: unlimited drinks.
This is a top deal if you’re in Pier 7. From 8pm onwards ladies’ get unlimited free drinks, which can be had either with dinner or in the bar area. The bar area is a little odd – being housed in a box within the restaurant – so it’s not the most glamorous of nights in the building (we’re looking at you, Asia Asia), however the vibe is good, the menu serves up some decent dishes and you can make an evening out of it by combining it with other Pier 7 venues on a Tuesday.
Tue 8pm-11.30pm. Pier 7, Dubai Marina (04 421 5669).

Il Faro
The deal: Unlimited pizza and sparkling grape for Dhs150
If the gorgeous lighthouse setting doesn’t do it for you, then the pizza and sparkling grape offer certainly will. For just Dhs150 you’ll get unlimited pizza and free-flowing sparkling grape overlooking the still waters of The Palm, and you can even bring the blokes along if you fancy, who will get the same deal for Dhs195. The ambiance is lovely, and the pizza is top-notch.
Dhs150 (ladies), Dhs195 (men). Tue 7pm-10pm (04 568 3137).

Inner City Zoo
The deal: Three free drinks
Inner City Zoo is the ultimate party spot to have a dance and let your hair down. Ladies get three free drinks between 11pm and 1pm and can make the most of the lively atmosphere with resident DJs and the Inner City Girls, who perform energetic dance routines wearing elaborately themed costumes. Expect the likes of Destiny’s Child and TLC with more current chart tunes for a fun night on the tiles.
Tue 11pm-1am. Rixos Premium Dubai, JBR (058 867 5357).

Lock, Stock & Barrel Barsha Heights
The deal: Three free drinks
Ladies night here is heaving and mixed groups fill the industrial-style space. Ladies get three free drinks between 6pm and 1am and there’s a good bar menu to get stuck into. The bar can get quite lively as the night goes on and it’s not usual to see people up dancing into the later hours. We’re big fans.
Tue 6pm-1am. Grand Millennium Dubai, Barsha Heights (04 514 9195).

Lock, Stock & Barrel JBR – The Walk Lock, Stock & Barrel JBR – The Walk
The deal: Three free drinks
Pair this with ladies’ night at STK JBR (the steakhouse just downstairs, which runs a deal on the same night), and you’re on to a brilliant-value night out. We’re big fans of the relaxed, laid-back atmosphere here, and the fairly even gender ratio of the crowd. We’re not so fond of having to hand over all our details at the door to get our tokens, however.
Tue 6pm-1am. Rixos Premium Dubai, The Walk, JBR (0r 392 7120).

Lucky Voice
The deal: Five free drinks, 50 percent off food and free karaoke
Warm up your vocal chords and channel your inner Mariah with the ladies’ night at Lucky Voice, where women get five free drinks and complimentary karaoke sessions.

Mcgettigan’s Madinat Jumeriah
The deal: Four free drinks and two-for-one on main courses
With picture perfect views of the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah and the warm Irish atmosphere that we know and love, McGettigan’s Madinat Jumeirah is an ideal spot to spend a Tuesday evening. Ladies get four free drinks from 7pm including bubbly and mixed drinks and 50 percent off main courses from the food menu. From 8pm women also get two-for-one on drinks, so you can continue the party.
Tue 7pm-2am. Madinat Jumeirah, Umm Suqeim (04 447 0219).

Nelson’s
The deal: Three free selected drinks
Every Tuesday and Wednesday, Dubai’s older crowd piles into this traditional neighbourhood pub. With dark-wooden walls, a smoky atmosphere and TV screens dotted around, it’s a solid place for after work or pre-dinner drinks. It’s casual, so expect the clientele to match. Staff are friendly and if, like us, you like pulling up a stool at the bar for the night, there’s plenty of room to do so.
Tue-Wed 8pm-1am. Media Rotana, Barsha Heights, Tecom (04 435 0000).

Nola Eatery & Social House
The deal:
Four free mixed drinks and 50 percent off food
Nola is rammed at the best of times so you can only imagine what it is like on ladies’ night. If you manage to get a table though you’re in for a top night. The New Orleans-themed bar has outdoor seating and a live band get the party-mood in full swing. The four free mixed drinks are a choice of two beverages, so rather limited, but there is 50 percent off the food menu if you’re peckish.
Tue 6pm-midnight. Armada BlueBay, JLT Cluster P (04 399 8155).

Oeno
The deal: Three free drinks, or unlimited mixed drinks and nibbles for Dhs60. Unlimited nibbles for men for Dhs60, drinks priced normally.
An oldie, but still a goodie. Such a goodie, in fact, that you might find it hard to get a table unless you book ahead. Expect a much more mixed crowd than at many others, thanks in part to the deals on unlimited nibbles (mainly cheese and cold cuts from the cheese room – yes, CHEESE ROOM) for both men and women. There’s also a decent happy hour for your pre-gaming, from 5pm until 8pm.
Tue 8pm-midnight. The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street (04 511 7373).

Q43

The deal:
Three free drinks, and three dishes for Dhs99 from the ladies’ night menu. Plus, a free glass of bubbly if you dine in the restaurant
There’s a trendy, party vibe at this cool 43rd floor bar. You’ll get three tokens for free drinks accompanied by some stunning views across the city. Plus, you can order three dishes on the ladies’ night menu for Dhs99 – think edamame, sushi et al. Start off downstairs at Qwerty before making your way up to this nightspot to continue your night in a tour of Media One Hotel.
Tue 6pm-1am. Media One Hotel, Dubai Media City (04 443 5403).

The 44
The deal
: Three free drinks
The 44 is a games-lover’s dream. There are pool tables, dart boards and even a ten-pin bowling alley to get your fix, while enjoying three free drinks from the massive bar. Outside, a sprawling terrace area offers a second bar for those seeking respite from the bowlarama mania. Green leather sofas and very East End London decorations (think cats with moustaches and gorillas with monacles) kit out the cool bar. There’s definitely a lot to love.
Tue 7pm-11pm. Hilton Dubai Al Habtoor City, Sheikh Zayed Road (054 5811 758).

Treehouse
The deal:
Two free drinks and 30 percent off the bill
Treehouse is the type of place you should definitely take visitors. The view from the rooftop terrace is out of this world and showcases the city from its very best angle. At sundown it’s stunning, and when the buildings all light up it’s pretty special, too. Drinks usually come in on the pricey side, as you’d expect for the views, so two free mixed drinks on ladies’ night is not to be scoffed at.
Tue 7pm-2am. Taj Hotel, Business Bay (04 438 3100).

The Penthouse
The deal:
Three free drinks
This is officially the best ladies night in Dubai, as we crowned it as such in our 2018 Time Out Dubai Music & Nightlife Awards. The Penthouse is a super spot whatever the occasion. Whether you’re catching up with your friends, wowing visitors or on a romantic date (those views), this one is a winner. You’ll get three free drinks to sip on while you enjoy the stunning vistas across to Dubai Marina. It gets busy, you’ll need to arrive early and the crowd is super-glam. If you go to one ladies’ night – let it be this one.
Tue 6pm-9.30pm. FIVE Palm Jumeirah Dubai, Palm Jumeirah (052 900 4868).

Qwerty
The deal: Three free drinks and 50 percent off food
A great post-work spot, kicking off early at 6pm. There’s a good selection of drinks (starring decent quality grape) that you collect from a special ladies’ night bar. Attracts a mixed crowd with an even balance of ladies and gents. Good for a laid-back catch up with the ladies and is an ideal place to start the evening off at.
Tue 6pm-10pm. Media One Hotel, Dubai Media City (04 427 1000).

Salero Tapas & Bodega
The deal: three free drinks
If you’re in the Mall of the Emirates on a Tuesday evening, this is a decent spot for a post-shopping drink and catch up with your friends. It’s also couple-friendly, as you can have your free drinks at the table while dining, as the deal isn’t restricted to the bar area. You have a choice from house grape or Spanish mixed beverages, and service is swift and friendly. Food is on the pricey side, although there are deals – such as three tapas for Dhs107, so it’s not going to break the bank to have some nibbles (we recommend the croquetas). The vibe is chilled-out but fun, and there’s live music, so although it’s not a party venue it’s worthy stopping by if you fancy saving some dirhams after giving your credit card a workout at the mall.
Tue 8pm-11pm. Mall of the Emirates, Al Barsha (04 409 5888).

STK JBR
The deal: Three free drinks, plus two courses for Dhs199, or three courses for Dhs239
You’d be forgiven for thinking you’d stepped onto the set of The Only Way Is Essex/Made In Chelsea/some sort of glammed-up hybrid of the two, upon arriving at this slick basement steakhouse, such is the excitable crowd. A great deal, and a popular one. (Though again, those details at the door…). Book ahead.
Tue 7pm-1am. Rixos Premium Dubai, The Walk, JBR (04 323 0061).

Tamanya Terrace
The deal: Three free drinks and 50 percent off food
This rooftop bar in Media City offers up three free drinks to women every Tuesday, and it’s a great post-work spot as it starts at 6pm. It’s casual, but the music and vibe picks up throughout the evening. In winter it’s an excellent al fresco option if you live or work in the area.
Tue 6pm-midnight. Radisson Blu Dubai Media City (04 366 9184).

Waka
The deal:
two free drinks, or a set menu and unlimited drinks for Dhs150
Ceviche, maki rolls and grills. This Peruvian spot in Business Bay is a super fun place for a party, as the bar often turns into a dancefloor later on in the evening. But before you get to grooving to some Latino beats, it’s time to dig into a set menu of tasty dishes and free flowing drinks. If you don’t fancy eating, you can still get two free drinks at the bar.
Tue 8pm-midnight. Ongoing. The Oberoi Dubai, Business Bay (04 453 5283).

Warehouse
The deal:
Unlimited grape and 50 percent off food.
It may be best known for its lively Friday brunches, but Warehouse also throws a decent Tuesday ladies’ night. Part of the Méridien Village complex, a collection of bustling bars and restaurants that spill out into a shared open-air space, Warehouse has long been a popular spot in the city’s cooler months, though you can sit inside while the weather’s still scorchio. Ladies get unlimited free drinks and 50 percent off food here on Tuesdays with sharing platters on offer.
Tue 7pm-11pm. Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre, Garhoud (04 702 2455).

Zero Gravity
The deal: Up to six free drinks
You’ll have to beat the clock to make the most of the free drinks on offer at Zero Gravity. Show up before 9pm and you’ll get six free drinks, before 10pm you’ll get five, before 11pm it’s four and before midnight you’ll get three. We’ve never had better reason to be prompt for anything.
Tue 8pm-2am. Skydive Dubai Drip Zone, Dubai Marina (04 399 0009).


WEDNESDAY

Barasti
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.

BOA Lounge

Copper Dog
The deal: Unlimited free drinks
Head to this Scottish gastropub for unlimited grape and mixed drinks on Wednesdays from 9pm. DJ Mickey MY takes to the decks and the usually laid-back bar fires up later into the night. From the tartan upholstery to the extensive variety of malt beverages, via dangling decorations assembled from antlers, Copper Dog feels pulled straight from the Highlands, with a lovely relaxed vibe that’s prone to get lively. A fun, casual ladies’ night if you don’t fancy getting dressed up.
Wed 9am-1am. DoubleTree by Hilton Dubai – Jumeirah Beach, The Walk, JBR (04 559 5355).

Couqley
The deal: Unlimited grape for ladies

With elegant, chilled-out music playing and a lively crowd, this is a good value and fun ladies’ night in JLT.
Wed 8pm-2am. Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Cluster A, JLT (04 514 9339).

Crab Market
The deal: unlimited free drinks plus 25 percent off food
Ladies who love crab, listen up. Cool DIFC spot Crab Market has a special female-friendly deal every Wednesday. Head here from 7pm and you’ll get unlimited free drinks, plus 25 percent off the menu. Specialities obviously include the namesake crustacean, however there are fish and veggie dishes, too. A good spot for a post-work catch up with your fellow restaurant-lovers. 
Wed 7pm-midnight. Emirates Financial Towers, DIFC (04 564 5525).

Gotha Dubai
The deal: Unlimited free drinks
This super club that arrived this year via Cannes is a party hotspot for the glam. There are eight elevated VIP areas, with 55 tables collectively and mega views out across the dancefloor, while the main bar, measuring a whopping 15 metres in length, sprawls across the ground level.

Not only do ladies get two free glasses of house grape at Grapeskin on Wednesday nights, you’ll also get a complimentary cheeseboard with a few slithers of brie, cheddar, red Leicester and the like with a handful of crackers. The venue is busy with a well-heeled crowd and the vibe is fun but still chilled with the post-work crowd letting their hair down. One of the best in the area.
Wed 8pm-10pm. La Ville Hotel & Suites, City Walk, Al Safa Street (054 309 5948).

Hunters Room & Grill
The deal: unlimited grape and 50 percent off a special Huntress menu
When you’re planning your next dinner with the ladies, book into Hunters. The classy steakhouse in The Westin offers up a grown-up, classy setting with a friendly vibe for a chilled-out catch up. And the best part? You’ll get unlimited grape throughout – there are no time limits on this when it comes to drinks. The steaks are delicious – tender and juicy – and when you pick off the ladies’ night menu you get 50 percent off. So that’s fillets coming in at under Dhs100, ladies. Sides are Dhs90 for three to share (don’t miss the creamed spinach) and you’ll also get some freshly-baked bread with an entire collection of salts to try – from Himalayan to Atlantic sea salt. The only catch? You need to be in a table of ladies only to dine, so leave the blokes at home. This is one of the best dinner deals out there.
Wed 7pm-11pm. The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort, King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street (04 511 7373).

Le Petit Belge Business Bay
The deal: Three free house drinks, Dhs100 for unlimited drinks.
Compared to its older sister in JLT, this Le Petit Belge is a little on the sad side. Whereas the JLT version is packed every Wednesday, has a great vibe, a mixed crowd and loads of fun, this one you and your mates may well be sitting at a near-empty bar. We certainly were on our visit. There’s a menu of ladies’ nights bites, which are tasty albeit pricey, and now the deal has changed from unlimited free drinks to just three (although you can upgrade to unlimited for Dhs100), we can’t see it picking up very quickly. We don’t know if it’s the hidden away location, or the area, but you’re best off heading to JLT.
Wed 6pm-2am. DoubleTree by Hilton Dubai – Business Bay, Bay Square (04 551 1544).

Le Petit Belge JLT
The deal: Three free drinks, or unlimited for Dhs100
Once one of the most generous ladies’ nights in the city, this Belgian bar has reduced its offering to three free drinks, or unlimited drinks for Dhs100. It’s still available all day, fortunately, so a top choice if you’re thinking off knocking off work early… (We won’t tell.)
Wed noon-2am. Pullman Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Cluster T, JLT (04 242 7794).

Le Petit Belge Motor City
The deal: Three free drinks or unlimited for Dhs100.
The third branch of this wildly popular Belgian bar continues the brand’s new format for ladies’ night. Throughout the evening, at this sleek, classy bar, ladies can get hold of three free drinks, or pay Dhs100 for unlimited select beverages all night. It’s trendy, it’s busy, it’s lively, and it’s got a great atmosphere. Not quite as heaving as the JLT original, but still a strong choice in the area.
Wed 6pm-2am. Park Inn by Radisson, Motor City (04 87 47 996).

LIMA Dubai
The deal: Unlimited sparkling pink grape
If you’re after a three destinations but just one taxi journey – City Walk is for you. Head over to licensed area The Square, where you’ll find LIMA Dubai, Toro + Ko.

It’s our Best Latin American Restaurant, too, so while you’re there it’s worth popping to the restaurant for dinner.
Wed 8pm-midnight. The Square, City Walk (056 500 4571).

Maiden Shanghai
The deal: Three free drinks
This trendy Chinese restaurant serves up three free drinks every Wednesday. It’s a classy affair, and the crowd are dressed appropriately in their best glad rags.

Wed 8pm-10pm. FIVE Palm Jumeirah Dubai, Palm Jumeirah (04 455 9989).

McGettigan’s DWTC

The deal: Five free selected house beverages.
For a night out that focuses on chilled banter rather than making you get up on your feet, McGettigan’s DWTC branch is the place to go. Its cosy and spaced out setting makes for a quaint atmosphere, where you can sit down and have a good old chinwag, thanks to music being kept at a decent level. The ladies night also features the acoustic talents of Mike Ross, playing catchy, classic tunes, too. It’s more often than not packed, but not uncomfortably so. Not a party night, but good for a catch up, get there early to nab a table and enjoy the friendly vibe.
Every Wed 8pm-10pm. Dubai World Trade Centre, Sheikh Zayed Road (800 6247).

Mr Miyagi’s
The deal: Three dishes and unlimited drinks for two hours for Dhs99
This is possibly one of the best deals out there. For two hours you’ll get free-flowing drinks (good quality ones) and they’re not stingy about topping you up, either. Plus, you get to sit down and chat to your friends over some Asian food. It’s not fine dining but if you’re after dim sum, kung pao chicken, crispy duck salad et al, you’re in the right place. It’s lively, fun, and a top night out.
Wed & Sat 5pm-11pm. Media One Hotel, Dubai Media City (04 420 7489).

In the mood for tacos? Ladies, get yourselves down to Muchachas, pronto. The pretty, pastel-coloured cantina is cosy, quaint, and perfect for a cute Instagram snap. Ladies’ nights here run from 7pm until 11pm and during that time you’ll get one free mixed drink and a free snack from the hearty Mexican menu. The problem is stopping at just one, when there’s a menu full of tacos, nachos and quesadillas. But you don’t have to, we’re not here to judge.
Wed 7pm-11pm. Holiday Inn Express, Al Safa (04 327 5878).

Nelson’s
The deal: Three free selected drinks
Every Tuesday and Wednesday, Dubai’s older crowd piles into this traditional neighbourhood pub. With dark-wooden walls, a smoky atmosphere and TV screens dotted around, it’s a solid place for after work or pre-dinner drinks. It’s casual, so expect the clientele to match. Staff are friendly and if, like us, you like pulling up a stool at the bar for the night, there’s plenty of room to do so.

This dark, trendy and stylish bar is one for a glam ladies’ night. Head here in winter and there’s a magnificent outdoor terrace to chill on, as well as eclectic art pieces on show.

Original Wings & Rings
The offer: Four free drinks and 30 percent off food

The vibe is casual at this American sports bar, with the sign at the door inviting guests to “eat, drink and talk loudly”. It’s not fancy, but then sometimes you don’t want to be.
Wed 8pm-midnight. Liberty House, DIFC (04 359 6900).

Ramusake
The deal: Unlimited drinks
We love this deal at funky Japanese spot Ramusake, as you get free drinks, all night. And, unlike in other venues (we’re looking at you, The MAINE), you can have the free drinks as you dine, too, the only limitation being a Dhs100 minimum spend per person to book the table. But once you order up some of the sushi and dim sum you’ll be pleased you did. It turns into a bit of a club-style vibe later when the bar areas transforms into a dance floor. A partygoers’ ladies’ night.
Wed 8pm-1am. DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Dubai – Jumeirah Beach, The Walk, JBR (04 559 5300).

Sho Cho
The deal: Unlimited mixed drinks and 30 percent off sushi and maki platters
This bar in Jumeirah boasts prime views of Downtown and Burj Khalifa from its pretty terrace. It’s not the party place it once was, but is still popular enough on a ladies’ night, where you’ll get unlimited mixed drinks from 6pm until 1am. The sushi is decent too, and you’ll be able to take advantage of a 30 percent off deal. One that’s better for the winter months, as the terrace really is its selling point.
Wed 6pm-1am. Dubai Marine Beach Resort & Spa, Jumeirah (04 346 1111).

Soho Garden
The deal: Unlimited grape from 8pm until midnight
Everything is white and gleaming, the people are beautiful and the buzz is electric at this hot new(ish) nightspot. It’s hard not to get into the party spirit here, so if you do take a trot down to Meydan, be prepared to make it a late one. Ladies get unlimited drinks on Wednesdays from 8pm until midnight and DJ Adam Graca will be on the decks should you fancy venturing onto the dancefloor – and plenty do just that. There’s also a new food menu, should you fancy a bite to eat.
Wed 8pm-midnight. Meydan Racecourse, Nad Al Sheba (056 822 2559).

Stereo Arcade
The deal: Unlimited house grape or mixed drinks
One of the city’s funkiest venues around, Stereo Arcade attracts a cool crowd of weekday revellers on ladies’ night. Whether it’s the hip-hop, funk and R&B being blasted out in the Boom Room, or the live acts that regularly take the stage, music buffs descend in their droves to Stereo Arcade. Going here is like being transported back to your heyday or an episode of Stranger Things – mainly because of the retro ’80s arcade games and neon lights, rather than the Upside Down world.
Wed 11pm-2am. DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Dubai, Jumeirah Beach Residence (800 78376).

The MAINE Oyster Bar & Grill
The deal: Unlimited drinks
This ladies’ night gets absolutely packed, but you can only have your drinks at the bar. And arrive early otherwise you’d be bustled about by wait staff trying to come to and from the kitchen.

The Stables
The deal: Five free drinks
Enjoy live music from DKO Trio and Baby Jane at this Wednesday night ladies’ night where females get five free drinks from a selection of house mixed drinks.

Tr!beca Kitchen + Bar

The deal: Unlimited free house grape, bubbles and short measures, plus 50 percent off main courses

THURSDAY


Alta Badia
The deal:
Unlimited pink grape
If you’re looking for a free Thursday drink in the Trade Centre area, then look no further. If you like pink grape, that is. If you don’t, swerve this one as there are no alternatives, but if you do then you’re in luck as you’ll get as many glasses as you like, for free, from 6pm until 8pm. An ideal place for a pre-dinner drink, or for a post-work wind down.
Thu 6pm-8pm. Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Sheikh Zayed Road (04 319 8771).


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. A good start to the weekend if you’re in the area.

Boston Bar
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).

Double Decker
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 for a laid-back drink you’d do worse. 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 locals back home.
Tues 8pm-midnight; Thu 8pm-10pm. Al Murooj Rotana, Downtown Dubai (04 321 1111).

Gotha Dubai
The deal: Unlimited free drinks

Morgan’s Gastropub
The deal: Four free drinks for ladies
The sister venue of JBR favourite JB’s Gastropub, Morgan’s has a relative niche in the market as one of the few high-end gastropubs in Deira.

Plus, you get to sit down and chat to your friends over some Asian food. It’s not fine dining but if you’re after dim sum, kung pao chicken, crispy duck salad et al, you’re in the right place.
