Abu Dhabi ladies' nights

Yes, it’s ladies’ night and the feeling’s right – who knew Kool and the Gang’s 1979 hit would prove to be the inspiration behind one of Abu Dhabi’s most popular nights out? VIP treatment and free fizz, you say? We’re sold! Comments

What: ‘Ladies’ Night’
When: Mondays, 9pm-midnight
Oh what a night: Forget hen party-style carnage – this is a sophisticated affair carried out in a seriously chic white setting. Resident DJ Adhel spins the latest tracks as ladies enjoy complimentary house beverages and two-for-one on specially concocted cocktails at Shangri-La’s rooftop Pearls Bar. Don’t miss the special one-off ‘Bling Bling Night’ on Friday May 14 from 9pm-3am – dress in your most glamorous bling-tastic outfits (we’re thinking gold chain layering Mr T-style) and drink for free.
Address book: Pearls Bar, Shangri-La (02 509 8777)

What: ‘Latino Ladies’, ‘Stella Night’
When: Tuesdays, all night (Chamas), Wednesdays, 7pm-10pm (The Yacht Club), Saturdays 5pm-6.30pm (Belgian Café)
Oh what a night: Not the most obvious choice for a girly get-together, in fact you’re more likely to find beer bellied gents lining the bar at the InterContinental’s Belgian Café, but ladettes can sup on complimentary Stella as part of their Saturday promotion. Next door at The Yacht Club, free bubbly goes down a treat with the mid-week, post-work posse. Brazilian beats and special cocktails at Chamas round up a full schedule of female-friendly promotions.
Address book: InterContinental Abu Dhabi (02 666 6888)

What: ‘Carnival’
When: Wednesdays, 9pm-2am
Oh what a night: You’ll be glad to read that feather boas, sequined leotards and ridiculous headgear aren’t compulsory at Left Bank’s ‘Carnival’ night. DJs blast out the best of house, funk and R&B while ladies sip on complimentary cocktails (only three per person though, hence the ‘sip’), between 8pm and 11pm, with selected ‘buy one get one free’ offers available throughout the night.
Address book: Left Bank, Souk Qaryat Al Beri (02 558 1680)

What: ‘Cosmo Night’
When: Saturdays, 5pm-late
Oh what a night: We feel Cubes’ ‘two Cosmo’s free’ offer is a little limiting, but with a venue as trendy as this, we can forgive any frugality.
Address book: Cubes, One to One Hotel – The Village (02 495 2000)

What: ‘Ladies’ Night’
When: Mondays, 7pm-10pm
Oh what a night: From faux fur to fake Fendis – we all love a bargain. But now and again, only the real-deal will do, which is why Cristal Bar stands out from the crowd. Every Monday, ladies can drink free champagne (not the cheapo alternative), between 7pm and 10pm.
Address book: Cristal Cigar & Champagne Bar, Millennium Hotel (02 614 6000)

What: ‘Arabian Night 1001’, ‘Latin and R&B Night’
When: Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays
Oh what a night: Hit Hemingways on Tuesdays (classic ‘Ladies’ Night’), and Cinnabar on Fridays (‘Arabian Night 1001’) and Saturdays (‘Latin and R&B Night’) for freebies, discounts (for Abu Dhabi Ladies’ Club
members and Etihad air crew) and DJ-led entertainment.
Address book: Hilton Abu Dhabi (02 681 1900)

What: ‘Ladies’ Night’
When: Wednesdays, 9pm-midnight
Oh what a night: Free, expertly-made international cocktails lure the ladies to this colonial-style bar and restaurant on Wednesday nights.
Address book: Oceans Restaurant, Le Royal Meridien Hotel (02 674 2020)
