6 new ladies nights to try in Dubai
1. McGettigan’s DWTC
The Irish institution has launched a new ladies’ night this month and it’s already got our thumbs up. Why? Because it’s on a Friday and not a week day. Ladies are treated to three complimentary drinks from 6pm to 9pm while DJ John spins the latest commercial tunes. At 9pm, The Mike Ross Band takes over the stage and belts out classic covers of famous rock and pop songs. Guys, they've got you covered too. From 6pm to 9pm, you'll be served unlimited house beverages for AED179.
When: 6pm-9pm, Friday

2. The Clavichord
Though the music lounge’s Monday night offer can only be claimed by couples, it’s the ladies really who benefit. Here’s why: they get three free selected house beverages between 8pm to 11pm. Sorry guys but you have to pay for your drinks. The entertainment for the night is jazz tunes by Afif Brothers.
