Madame Butterfly @ China Grill
It’s carved a popular name for itself in Dubai, and girls go free on drinks all night at Madame Butterfly, including bubbles. If you decide to eat (and with a drink offer like that, you probably should), groups of ladies also get 50 percent off food – and there’s 25 percent off food for mixed groups. The venue also hosts regular pop-up shops on ladies night and live DJs.
When: Tuesdays, 6.30pm-11.30pm
