Even on the weekend, ladies can take advantage of those free drinks…

The Tuesday ladies’ night ritual is long gone. These days, girls can take advantage of free drinks pretty much every night of the working week – but weekend ladies’ nights are much rarer to come by.

Rare – but not totally unheard of. If you’re looking for a wallet-friendly (or totally free) Friday night out, here are four ladies’ nights (as well as a ladies’ day) to take advantage of.

Cirque Le Soir

Dubai stalwart and one of the city’s wildest clubs, Cirque Le Soir is hosting a particularly dark version of their Friday Night Freakshow this week, and with it, they’re offering complimentary selected beverages for ladies until 2am.

Cirque Le Soir, Fairmont Sheikh Zayed Road, 10.30pm to 3am, Friday May 4, free entry. Tel: (050) 995 5400. facebook.com/CirqueLeSoirDubai


It’s the new Business Bay super club that’s got everyone talking. As well as some A-list acts and top resident DJs, Gotha offers free drinks for ladies from 11pm to 1am every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Gotha Dubai, Radisson Blu Dubai Waterfront, Business Bay, 11pm to 3am, Fridays. Tel: (055) 1 934 934. gothaclubdubai.com

Inner City Zoo

Disco Night at Inner City Zoo is one of the city’s top new nights, bringing a soundtrack of old-school ballads and chart toppers from the last 30 years of music to the JBR haunt. There’s free-flowing drinks for the girls from 11pm to 1am, on top of old school jams and disco beats till 3am.

Inner City Zoo, Rixos Premium, JBR, 10pm to 3am, Fridays. Tel: (058) 867 5357. facebook.com/InnerCityZoo 

McGettigan’s JLT

This Dubai stalwart is a post-brunch favourite, but now there’s a new reason to head there after dark, as every Friday ladies can enjoy three complimentary drinks from 9pm to midnight. DJ John Hayes from Dubai 92 will be playing chart hits and cheesy pop, and there’s a wide selection of drinks, including, wines, spirits and cocktails.

McGettigans JLT, Bonnington Hotel, Jumeirah Lakes Towers, 9pm to 12am, Fridays. Tel: (04) 378 0800. mcgettigans.com

… and if it’s a ladies’ day deal you’re after…

Soho Beach

Fancy trading a night out for a day out? Why not head to Soho Beach, the luxury poolside club forming a generous portion of Meydan complex Soho Garden. As well as chilled daytime beach vibes, loungers start from Dhs100 and there’s free flowing rose for ladies from 12pm to 2pm.
