We love Mondays, and while that might not necessarily be true, we can honestly day we love Monday night ladies’ nights. Whether you’re keeping it casual at McGettigan’s JLT or getting spruced up for a dally down to Nobu, there’s plenty going on to keep those early-week spirits soaring. Below are five of the best going on across the city tonight. Enjoy, ladies.
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 Polo Bar
The deal: mixed drinks for Dhs5
Ladies, if you’re looking for a drink pre-dinner at World Cut Steakhouse then this swanky New York-style bar should be on your list, if you like mixed drinks that is. Every Tuesday and Wednesday you’ll get mixed drinks for just Dh5, which is a bargain whatever way you look at it – especially for a setting of this ilk. It’s pretty quiet, but this gentleman’s club-style sports lounge is worth popping by if you want a cheap drink and a catch up without having to yell at your companion.
Mon-Tue 9pm-midnight. Habtoor Palace, Al Habtoor City (04 435 5577).
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. There’s also a food platter and a jug of grape available for Dhs99 to enjoy while listening to music from two live bands. The atmosphere is low-key with plenty of rustic charm and a friendly crowd.
Mon 7.30pm-1.30pm. The Stables, Sheikh Zayed Road (04 342 5571).
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).
