Five essential ladies' nights in Abu Dhabi this week, April 8-14

Your guide to this week's events in the capital


Ladies’ nights are one of those UAE institutions which make living here so different.

Every week, scores of ladies enjoy free nights out in Abu Dhabi’s coolest venues.

But with so many choices, it can be difficult to settle on just one.

So we have compiled a few ideas to try this week.


Monday nights at Empire.

Live life in the fast lane at the world’s only nightclub built over an F1 track.

You’ll certainly be in pole position for a top time at this new-look ladies’ night.

The club has introduced a brand-new character called Mr. Mean to mix with revellers, but the Empire team are being far from mean themselves.

Ladies will get selected drinks free of charge, all night, while dancing away to the beats of DJ Neil T.

Mon 11pm-3.30am. Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi, Yas Island (050 501 5052).

Monday nights at Filini Garden

This funky outdoor venue has proved a real breath of fresh air on the Abu Dhabi social scene.

All is rosy in the garden for ladies during the Bellissima Mondays night, when gals get free-flowing beverages from 7.30pm until 1am for just Dhs55, as well as 50 percent off food.

Ever-popular DJ Cliff Townley will also be cranking up the atmosphere with soulful tunes.

We recommend getting along early for sundowners to soak up some stunning views.

Mon 7.30pm-1am. Radisson Blu Hotel, Abu Dhabi Yas Island
(02 656 2000).

Tuesday nights at Azzuro

They know how to treat a lady at charming Italian eatery, Azzurro.

Every Tuesday, the waterfront spot offers visiting signoras two free drinks, plus a tasty 25 percent off their total bill at the end of the night.

That makes it well worth venturing out in midweek.

There is a new menu of beverages you can sample while you are here, too.

Tue 7pm-11.30pm. The Souk, Qaryat Al Beri (02 575 9993).

Wednesday nights at Sho Cho

If you just can’t wait until the weekend, it might be time to make your Wednesdays wicked.

A brand new ladies’ night is spreading some Japanese joy in the emirate, with a free flow of beverages served up from 9pm alongside crowd-pleasing tunes from DJ Kareem Elias.

Wed 9pm until late. Souk Qaryat Al Beri, Bain Al Jessrain (02 558 1117).

Thursday nights at Yas Waterworld

Make a splash on the Abu Dhabi social scene by trying out a ladies’ night with a difference.

The weekly Yas Waterworld event is back, with girls able to try out more than 40 rides and slides while soaking up the vibes of a top DJ.

There won’t be a man in sight, from the security staff to the musical beat maestro on the decks herself.

It’s a woman’s Yas Waterworld.

Thu 6pm-11pm. Yas Island (02 496 8008).
