Crab Market, DIFC
Nestled in the heart of DIFC, Crab Market is a royal-approved spot frequented by HH Sheikh Hamdan worthy of checking out. On Wednesdays, enjoy complimentary drinks and 25% off a delectable seafood menu, whilst taking in the breathtaking views of the Burj Khalifa. The evening begins at 7pm on the dot, meaning working ladies can make their way straight from the office.
Time: 7pm onwards
Location: Emirates Financial Towers, North Tower, 15th floor, Sheikh Zayed Road, DIFC, Dubai
Barbary Deli + Cocktail Club, Tecom
Barbary is always a good idea, no matter the day of the week, but even more so on Tuesdays. Aptly titled “Je T’aime Tuesdays”, the deli-cum-club offers a selection of unlimited drinks for women from 8pm until midnight every Tuesday, with music from one of Dubai’s hottest acts, DJ Patchoulee.

Round up your gal pals and treat yourselves to a VIP set menu comprising a selection of Okku’s signature dishes for AED 379.

QE2, Port Rashid Marina
The Queen Elizabeth 2, known simply as QE2, is a retired ocean liner, which was operated by the British-American cruise line Cunard as both a transatlantic liner and a cruise ship from 1969 to 2008. However, as of April, it has been operating as a floating hotel in Dubai. Every Tuesday, enjoy unlimited beverages on-the-house and canapés for a mere AED 95 from the top deck setting with an outlook over the city skyline, but an atmosphere of the French Riviera.
Time: 9pm – 12am
Location: Port Mina Rashid, Dubai
1OAK, JW Marriott Marquis Hotel
If you’re craving an unrivaled night of dancing, this New York export is the perfect way to end your evening. A popular celeb hangout, 10AK has recently introduced its “She is One of a Kind” ladies night, which offers a free-flowing evening just for the girls while resident DJs Tony Mendes and DJ Crown Prince set the mood with the hottest hip-hop and R&B tunes.
Time: 11pm – 3am
Location: JW Marriott Marquis Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Rd, Dubai
+971 52 881 8888
Hidden amongst the clamor of JBR, Ramusake pays homage to traditional Japanese dining. The cool hangout offers free-flowing beverages all night, so long as you spend AED 100 per person — but with the mouth-watering menu of dim sum, sushi, and wagyu sliders, we’re certain that won’t be an obstacle. The hideout transforms into a dance floor, so our suggestion: eschew the stilettos for something a little more comfortable.
Time: 8pm – 1am
Location: DoubleTree by Hilton, The Walk, JBR, Dubai

Industrial Avenue, The Westin Mina Seyahi
Industrial Avenue isn’t the conventional choice if you’re seeking a chilled-out, lounge vibe. For starters, it’s an underground nightclub, which was originally part of the now-closed China Grill. Promising an edgy and raw clubbing experience, the stripped-back venue with a graffiti-strewn interior bills itself as “a nightclub for the people”, eschewing glitz and glamour in favor of a fun time with good music from DJ Crown Prince on deck duty, and free drinks for ladies until midnight every Thursday.
Time: 9pm – 3am
Location: The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, Dubai
+971 52 293 5907
La Serre Bistro & Boulangerie, Vida Hotel
Not a ladies night per se, but this popular French eatery has just launched a glamorous dining experience that is sure to perpetuate the magic of Paris every Wednesday. For AED 279, you can enjoy an enticing three-course menu alongside a signature welcome drink of your choice. The dress code is smart and elegant, or as the French say, très chic.
Time: 7pm – 3am
Location: Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, Downtown, Dubai
