The deal: Free entry and unlimited free drinks
Thursday nights are for the ravers with Twisted night, a party dedicated to quality electronic music. The night is headlined by Spinnin’ Records producer DJ Cammora and DJ/producer Nader Razdar, who has played alongside some of the music scenes most listened-to house and techno stars, including Solomun, Sven Vath, Guy Gerber and Marco Carola.
Free. Thu midnight-3am. Burj Khalifa, Downtown Dubai (04 888 3308).
The deal: unlimited drinks for Dhs99
There aren’t a huge amount of ladies’ nights that allow you to see out the end of the week with unlimited drinks, so this is a top choice if you’re looking for a post-work wind-down. The newly revamped Asian restaurant at Fairmont The Palm offers ladies free flowing drinks from 6pm until 9pm every Thursday in the lounge area of the venue. If you’re peckish you can also order up some nibbles such as crispy duck buns or tuna tacos. A good start to the weekend if you’re in the area.
Thu 6pm-9pm. Fairmont The Palm, Palm Jumeirah (04 457 3457).
The deal: Three free drinks
This long-standing Downtown pub has everything you could ever want from a classic British watering-hole and its ladies’ night offers up three free drinks. It’s not one for a chic night out, but for a laid-back drink you’d do worse. A healthy dose of nostalgia comes in the form of pop memorabilia from David Bowie as well as The Beatles, adorning the entrance wall, while the stained glass windows will remind Brits of locals back home.
Thu 8pm-10pm. Roda Al Murooj, Downtown Dubai (04 321 1111).
The deal: Four free drinks for ladies
The sister venue of JBR favourite JB’s Gastropub, Morgan’s has a relative niche in the market as one of the few high-end gastropubs in Deira. Inside the bar is swanky, contemporary and very much modelled on its older sibling in JBR. With some supremely eclectic music (ranging from 1970s disco to 2018 trap and hip-hop), ladies’ can enjoy four free drinks from 8pm until midnight on Thursday and Friday evenings. A solid choice for a ladies’ night in the northern end of town.
Thu-Fri 8pm-midnight. Al Bandar Rotana, Deira (04 704 2331).
The deal: Free pool access and unlimited frozen grape or three free drinks and free pampering
Head to V Deck at V Hotel on a Thursday and you’ll get free pool access, a complimentary towel and sunbed, plus free-flowing frozen grape between noon and 5pm. If you’re heading down after the daily grind, ladies can enjoy three free drinks and pampering at rotating stations including mini massage, manicures and pedicures.
Free. Thu noon-5pm & 5pm-11pm. V Hotel Dubai, Curio Collection by Hilton, Al Habtoor City (04 435 5577).
