Let your hair down and smack on your favourite lippie, girls. In the spirit of International Women’s month, we show you the best music venues in town that bring the tunes and awesome drinks deals so you can plan the perfect girls’ night out.
Queen bees, your hump day’s ‘bout to get a whole lot better. Knock off work early and celebrate the midweek at Lulu’s Lounge with a lineup of entertaining live music performances. Warm the night up by shaking your tail feather to Trumpet Z’s soulful trumpet blares before getting down and dirty to old-school hip-hop DJ sets. Of course, the revelry isn’t complete without some drinks. Squad up with your girl gang and get giggly on free-flow bubbly (until midnight) and devour trays of never-ending servings of canapés. The best part? It’s all on the house.
Slip on those dancing stilettos and get ready to groove to the sounds of Ashanti, Beyoncé and Rihanna at Bar Rouge on Thursday nights as the club’s resident DJ Styluxtakut helms the decks with a blend of sultry R&B and throwback hip-hop ditties. Expect tons of bedazzled corsets as cabaret-inspired performers heat up the dancefloor. Ladies receive complimentary entry from 10pm to 1am, and enjoy three-hour free-flow of vodka cranberry and Cointreau sprite.
Thursdays are the new Fridays thanks to Kilo Lounge’s Ladies First. From delicious trap and dancehall reggae to funky hip-hop, bust a move as DJs churn out the freshest music mix to keep you on your feet. And just for all the women in the house, bartenders shake up specially concocted Ladies First cocktails all night. And if you must bring your guy friends along, there’s one-for-one on selected drinks like Sapporo, housepours, cocktails and wine by glass – for just under $20.
As Cyndi Lauper once said, girls just wanna have fun. And at Zouk, Thursday nights are when ladies get all the fun stuff. Ascend the club’s spiralling staircase and let heart-thumping tropical house and R&B carry you into its sleek lounge, Capital. Lucky ladies who swing by early are treated to endless cocktails, wines and housepours from 9pm ‘til late. Oh, and did we mention? Entry is free.
Something wicked this way comes. And you’ll find it only 282m above the ground. Grab your gal pals, gussy up and head to 1-Altitude for Wicked Wednesdays. Ease your way through the rest of the work week as you chill to the club’s resident band One Avenue performing acoustic covers of your favourite songs. Then kick it up a notch with DJs Xtreme and Leonard T for a pulsating and electrifying set. For ladies only: enter for free from 6pm 'til late and quench your thirst with an exclusive $10 deal on Jim Beam citrus highballs and martinis.
