8 lively Dubai ladies nights
Who said going out only happens on the weekend? These ladies nights will have you feeling like its Friday all over again. Our advice? Better set a few alarms for the morning to come.
Cherry Jams @ Pacha Ibiza Dubai
This is the ladies night version of that friend who’s always a bad influence. Ease into the night on the terrace with free select drinks from 8pm until 11.30pm with house beverages, pink bubbles and cherry jam beverages. In bed by midnight? No chance, Cinders! After 11.30pm girls can redeem three drinks tokens and hit the dance floor with the resident DJ Masterstepz until 3am.
When: Tuesdays 8pm-11.30pm
Where: Madinat Jumeirah

Lost Angels @ Zero Gravity
Dubious name aside, this midweek party is worth the growing hype. Entrance is AED100 and buys free-flowing premium drinks and gourmet canapés all night, with guys invited to join the fun from 10pm. The tunes range from jazz to 90s throwbacks from the venue’s new 800 square-foot DJ stage.

Madame Butterfly @ China Grill
Rapidly making a name for itself in Dubai, girls go free on drinks all night at Madame Butterfly, including bubbles.

The venue also hosts regular pop-up shops on ladies night and live DJs.

Ladies Night with a View @ Vault

Throw your arms high in the sky until the 3am elevator stampede kicks off.
