Many visitors and expats find it hard to get their heads around when they come to Abu Dhabi is the ‘Ladies Nights’ concept at many restaurants, bars and clubs.
Ladies’ nights usually involve free or discounted admission and free alcoholic drinks for ladies. Each ladies’ night has different terms and conditions. Some offer unlimited drinks whilst dining, whereas others offer a limited number of drinks but have no requirement to purchase food.
Note that just because it’s called a ladies night the space will not be exclusively reserved for ladies; men are allowed and are often asked for a ‘minimum spend’ in order to enjoy the lively atmosphere that most ladies’ nights offer.
You should take into account that being drunk in public is not tolerated, so be careful not to cross the line, especially if you are relying on taxis and/or public transport – you can learn about consuming alcohol in Abu Dhabi here.
As contradictory as they might seem, ladies’ nights offer a great chance to relax and unwind with friends in some of Abu Dhabi’s most exclusive venues for a minimal cost.
Here is our round-up of some of the best Abu Dhabi ladies’ nights that take place around the city every week (although some will be paused during Ramadan).
We’ve done our best to keep this up to date, but deals change – constantly!! Please do contact venues in advance to confirm current deals; reservations in advance are always essential heading out in Abu Dhabi at night.
This list is huge, so we recommend bookmarking it and coming back to it when you need it! We will update it when we hear about new offers, so don’t forget to check back next time you’re planning a big night out.

Other types of ‘Ladies Night’ in Abu Dhabi
Whilst the term ‘Ladies Night’ is generally used to refer to the special deals available for ladies on certain nights at restaurants, bars and nightclubs around the city, not all ‘Ladies Nights’ are about food and booze.
In fact, in stark contrast, some ‘Ladies Nights’ are about ladies having the opportunity to relax and unwind away from the ‘prying eyes’ of men. This is especially true for Ladies days at places like Yas Waterworld and in other venues where women, from some backgrounds in particular, might feel uncomfortable with men around.
Here are some of the ladies only deals on offer throughout the capital.
