One of the best things about Abu Dhabi is the number of fab ladies nights all across the city, and we have a round up of the best of the bunch. You’ll score maximum brownie points with your besties by suggesting these ones - we’re sure they’ll be on high rotation in no time! 



Take a deep breath and dive right into this cracking Wednesday ladies night! Shared appetisers of guacamole, prawn ceviche and chicken and vegetable flautas will whet your appetite, before main course decision time: choose between a tostada salad, tacos or fajitas with lots of fillings on the menu (and plenty of veggie options!). Unlimited margaritas will have the girls in fine form, and it would be rude not to try each flavour - kiwi, lime, raspberry and strawberry – at least once. 

End on a sweet note with a slice of tres leches cake, and enjoy the luxury of a proper catch up with your besties.

Ladies night kicks off at 7PM and runs until midnight, so there’s no rush to leave!

Timing: Wednesdays | 7PM-midnight

Pricing: AED145

Bookings: +97125823639



After a recent refresh, this ladies night is a must-try - La Dolce Diva is calling, and we’re ready to answer.

Channel ultimate Italian summer vacation energy with two hours of unlimited Italian drinks that make for the perfect aperitivo - we were struggling to decide on our favourite spritz. 

Our non-drinkers haven’t been forgotten, as the selection of mocktails is delightful too and definitely some of the best around. 

A DJ spins some beats to ensure the vibe is high, and it’s an easy choice for just AED70, leaving change for a tasty pizza or some antipasto if you’re peckish. 

Timing: Thursdays | 8-10PM

Pricing: AED70

Bookings: +97126543238

Nothing gets us over the mid-week slump more than free cocktails – yes, you read that right: free drinks for ladies every Wednesday for three whole hours at the Middle East's first ever microbrewery! For a funky twist, Craft’s cocktails are kegged and ready to be poured straight from the tap – speedy and delicious. Choose from house-made espresso martini, Moscow mule, paloma or Aperol spritz – or if you’re as indecisive as us, sample them all with one of Craft’s iconic cocktail flights. 

Not a cocktail connoisseur? Free-flow beer and prosecco are included too, and be sure to spring for something tasty from the food menu – with some of the best pub grub in Abu Dhabi, it’s not to be missed!

Thursday is so close to the weekend, you can almost taste it – and taste it you will at Barbossa’s ladies night: it’s a fiesta of epic proportions. Kicking off from 8PM, girls get unlimited classic margaritas, prosecco, house wine or spirits for three hours with an AED150 minimum spend, all too easy to cover with the tasty Mexican menu on offer. Do yourself a favour and try the birria tacos and the flautas and finish off with some excellent churros ... go on, you know you want to!

You’ll be struggling to stay in your seat as the DJ spins dancefloor-friendly beats, while dancers entertain the crowd and keep the mood amped up to the max. We challenge you not to join in! 

For more of what Barbossa has to offer, their Saturday brunch is a must try too!

Timing: Thurdays | 8-11PM

Pricing: AED150 minimum spend to enjoy free-flow drinks

There are so many good things to say about this ladies night. First, it's on a Friday which might be the only night of the week that women actually want to get out of their sweat pants! Second, Raclette is so pretty, both inside and on the terrace, it's impossible not to feel the good vibes.

But it's the ladies night package that we think really turns this from a doable to a must-do! For just AED180, you get to choose a main dish - we love the mussels and the gorgeous salads, but for the more hungry among us, the risotto is good and the tagliatelle fresh from the parmesan wheel is hard to go past - and unlimited drinks.

The cocktails were excellent. All the martinis are more than up-to-scratch(the passionfruit martini is the favourite with the BB team!), and if you have a chat with the lovely person on the phone when you book, they'll do you a selection of what might just be Abu Dhabi's best mocktails which sets them apart from other Abu Dhabi ladies nights. There's also draught beer and wine to choose from, so whatever you fancy, you'll find it. If you'd like prosecco, you can upgrade and pay just AED195.

To add to what is surely one of Abu Dhabi's best ladies night moods, the musician plays a violin - yes, very gay Paris! - as well as a sax and then transitions to the DJ booth ... who doesn't love a multi-talented fella for a ladies night?!

This is a must-book ladies, don't be hoping to rock up and try for a table: they get busy!

Time: Fridays 8PM – 11PM 

Price: AED 180 (unlimited drinks & one dish) AED 195 to upgrade to bubbly 

Bookings: 02 546 2277
