Try something new and feel fresh the next day…

Skip the traditional dinner-and-drinks ritual for something a little different, the city has begun to offer some new, unique ladies’ night events to try. So whether it’s the cinema, a challenge with the girls or a pamper evening, here are eight alternative ladies’ nights to try in Dubai.

Challenge yourself

TEPfactor is launching the ‘Ultimate Ladies Night Adventure’ on Sunday October 27, which will continue on the last Sunday of every month. The new event offers girls 50 per cent off the challenge between 4pm and 10pm, giving you a great excuse to bond with friends.

Get glammed up

‘Tropic Like It’s Hot’ is a ladies’ night with a twist at Away Spa, W Dubai – The Palm. Priced at Dhs390, with unlimited sparkling, from 6pm to 8pm ladies can take advantage of complimentary access to the sauna, steam room and whirlpool to kick off an evening of relaxation, before getting pampered with four mini treatments to get you ready for a big night out. The treatments include a ‘Diamond Drama’ lip mask, nail polish in a choice of the latest trending shades and party lashes applied for you. It’s finished with a glow-up from a dedicated glitter artist to finish off your party-ready look.

Learn to cook

The ladies’ night cooking class will see wagamama UAE’s Executive Chef, Shiyas Kareem teach you how to prepare one of their tasty dishes. During the hour-long session, guests will learn the basics of Japanese cuisine and hopefully pick up some new skills in the kitchen. The new ladies’ night runs every other Wednesday from 7pm to 8pm. Each cooking class costs Dhs99 per person and includes one main meal and a glass of wine. You’ll even get a recipe card for your dish, so you can practice your craft and recreate the meal at home.
