6 Dubai ladies nights for food lovers
The days of ladies nights solely meaning a few free drinks is now over, much like everything in the region bigger is always better. Keeping that in mind, these hotspots have spiced up their offering to include mouth-watering food and mixes.
Clam Jam @ The Maine
A new ladies night in JBR, The Clam Jam at The Maine got our attention because the name makes no reference to heels, angels or being “naughty”. The focus is on fantastic seafood and a “no rules” drinks policy – no vouchers, no limitations.
When: Wednesdays, 8pm-12am
Where: Double Tree by Hilton, JBR

‘O’ Socialista @ Okku
This is one of the few restaurants in Dubai that doesn’t need a gimmick, but Okku’s ‘O’ Socialista Ladies Night is a great way to sample its Japanese dishes with the added benefit of free-flowing fizz and three ‘O’ style cocktails of your choice. All girl groups can opt for the VIP ‘O’ Socialista set menu for only AED379 based on two sharing.
When: Wednesdays, 7pm-11pm
Where: The H Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road
Contact: +9714 501 8777
Not all ladies nights demand you to dance on any raised surface and shout “I love this song!” every three minutes. It is a Tuesday after all. The Ivy offers an excellent three-course meal and four drinks for just AED199. The set menu is full of treats like pan-fried scallops, ballotine of corn-fed chicken breast and desserts like banana sticky
toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream… okay, we’re sold.
When: Tuesdays, 6pm-10pm
Where: Jumeirah Emirates Towers

We Welcome Women @ Tresind
“We Welcome Women” claims this Indian restaurant, and they do so by offering customised concoctions prepared by talented mixologists, who unlike the DJ, will take special requests. Try The Edison, which is served in a light bulb... #RIPjamjars. Enjoy three free drinks and a 15 percent discount on food all evening.
When: Wednesdays, 8pm-11pm
Where: Tresind, Nassima Royal Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road

Sunset Wednesdays @ Crab Tavern
The ladies night at this relaxed, British-y gastropub in Dubai Media City offers 30 percent off food (allowing for twice the crab doughnuts you’d normally scoff), unlimited signature cocktails or grape and plenty of mid-week laid back chatter. A good deal all round, we’d say.
When: Wednesdays, 7pm-11pm
Where: Crab Tavern Dubai, Media One Hotel, Media City

Queen Bee @ Tribeca Kitchen & Bar
A weekly mainstay on Tribeca’s calendar, this ladies night offers two complementary drinks – choose from bubbly and select house beverages or four free drinks with every dinner reservation – and 50 percent off main courses for ladies. Less in-your-face than some, this ladies night means you can enjoy a mid-week catch up in a cool place with an even cooler bill.
When: Tuesdays, 9pm-11pm
Where: Tribeca Kitchen & Bar, JA Ocean View Hotel, JBR
