17 ladies' nights that are perfect for foodies

Because what are drinks without dinner?

We’re not saying we aren’t grateful for the free drinks, we really are. It’s just that sometimes the ladies of Dubai crave something a little more substantial than a liquid dinner.

The good news is, many restaurants across Dubai now include food deals as part of their ladies’ night offerings. Whether it’s a discount on the total bill, a special set menu, or even a free dessert, on certain nights of the week you can tuck into a decent feed for next to nothing.

Here are 17 of our favourites…
