Ladies’ nights show no sign of waning in popularity in Dubai. Who knew handing out free beverages to half the population would prove to be such a good idea?
You can bar hop over multiple levels at Dubai Marina’s Pier 7, and on ladies’ night Asia Asia (taxi: Pier 7, +9714 276 5900) is a great place to begin your journey. The views are great, the vibe leans towards classy but still fun, and every Tuesday you’ll get three drinks just for not being a man.
Another dress to impress affair, with nary a natural eyelash in sight, takes place every Tuesday from 7pm-1am at STK Downtown (taxi: Address Downtown, +971 4 425 3948). The renowned steakhouse offers up its fine cuts as part of two or three course menus, yours for Dhs199 and Dhs239 respectfully, along with three free drinks. Be prepared to kick off your heels for a bit of a boogie.
You'll also feel the urge to hit the floor at Japanese hotspot Ramusake (taxi: DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Dubai, +971 4 559 5300), where the atmosphere gets cranked up to party mode as the night grows ever younger. You get free drinks all night, but there's a minimum spend of Dhs100 per person to book a table.
Another Japanese joint worth a few of your holiday dirhams is Morimoto Dubai (taxi: Renaissance Downtown Hotel, +971 4 512 5577), where Kira Kira! offers three complimentary drinks along with 40 percent off a select menu (choose the spicy tuna tacos) as DJ Trix spins the decks. Be sure to snag a table on the terrace. Every Tue, 8pm-midnight.
If you're on the lookout for something more chilled, Monday nights at the Beach Lounge (taxi: Jumeirah Beach Hotel, +971 4 432 3232) offer up cabanas, fire pits, sand between your toes, and picture perfect views of Burj Al Arab - oh, and free flowing sparkling between 8-10pm.
