14 Dubai ladies' nights that offer deals for guys too
Now you can invite the whole crew…
Ladies’ nights have long been a Dubai institution with free drinks and dinner deals for the girls in bars and restaurants across the city. Gents’ nights are slowly catching up, and we’re all here for it, but what about when a mixed group of you wants to go out together? Well, we did a spot of digging and found some nights out in Dubai with deals for girls and guys.
From a three-course set menu for a bargain Dhs150, or unlimited free drinks, we’ve rounded up the city’s best ladies’ nights that also offer some great deals for guys.
Rooftop bar Twenty Three has recently opened in the Grand Plaza Movenpick in Media City. Their ‘Halfway to Havana’ ladies’ night is brand new. Girls will get three drinks tokens and you’ll get to choose from a delicate selection of cocktails, however, one of the tokens must be given to a guy, who can choose from a gents menu.
Twenty Three, Grand Plaza Movenpick, Media City, ladies night every Tuesday from 7.23pm to 11.23pm. Tel: (04) 525 7777. movenpick.com

There’s also 50 per cent off a specially-selected food menu too. Bask in the perfect alfresco setting with the glittering buildings of Dubai Marina creating a lovely backdrop. Make sure to book a table as they go fast.
