Five essential ladies' nights this week, April 15-21

Your guide to this week's events in the capital


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

Paying for drinks is a thing of the past if you’re a lady in Abu Dhabi.

So many of the city’s coolest venues will lay out the red carpet and you will barely have to stump up any dirhams at all.

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 99 Sushi Bar and Restaurant.

A ladies’ night with a difference.

Time Out’s best newcomer restaurant offers a glass of sparkling beverage on arrival, which is always welcome.

Then if you spend more than Dhs999 for two you’ll get a bottle of high-end French bubbly.

This isn’t the cheapest ladies’ shindig in town, but a corking night out is guaranteed at one of the swankiest spots in the city.

Mon 7pm-11.30pm. The Galleria, Al Maryah Island (02 762 3333)

Tuesday nights at Byblos Sur Mer Lounge

Split across two floors and overlooking the picturesque marina, Byblos Sur Mer oozes elegance.

Enjoy a stylish ladies’ night on the terrace with complimentary mixed beverages and 20 per cent off bottles.

It’s a good excuse to dig out your nicest dress and inject a bit of glamour to your midweek.

Tue 8pm-11pm. InterContinental Abu Dhabi, King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street (800 423 463)

Wednesday nights at Couture Lounge

Enjoy a night to remember at one of Abu Dhabi's swankiest venues.

A glass of bubbly will greet ladies on arrival and a further two glasses of sparkling beverage are available throughout the night.

But it’s not all about ladies here.

Gents who accompany their lady friends will get 20 per cent off their bill too.

That’s what we call a good deal.

Wed 9pm-2am. Marriott Al Forsan Abu Dhabi, Al Forsan International Sports Resort, Khalifa City (02 201 4131)

Wednesday nights at Porters English Pub

There’s really no excuse for ladies not to make it down to Porters.

With great discounts on offer in one of the capital’s most popular hangouts, what are you waiting for?

You can enjoy three free selected beverages from 9pm to 11pm.

And if you fancy yourself as a night owl, then there’s 50 per cent off beverages until 3am.

Just try not to think about having to go to work in the morning.

Mon-Wed 9pm-3am. Grand Millenium Al Wahda, Hazza Bin Zayed Street (02 443 9999)

Thursday nights at Stars ’N’ Bars

Every day is great at Stars ’N’ Bars, but Thursdays are fantastic.

It’s when ladies get three free drinks vouchers to redeem on the Star Deck outside the venue or inside in the main bar.

Start off the weekend in fine style at this buzzing Yas Marina spot.

Thu 10pm-midnight. Yas Marina, Yas Island (02 565 0101).
