Make The Most Of Ladies Night
The weekend starts Friday night, right? Wrong. Wednesday night is when the fun begins, and I’m looking at you ladies. Being a woman may suck sometimes, what with all that leg shaving nonsense, but at least once a week we get the best deals across the island, the crème de la crème of which are in this very article.
Whether you’re an after work drinks kinda gal, or would rather not get home till at least 3am, here are the 12 best bars and clubs to keep you satisfied every week.
- Clubs -
Luckily for us, we hardly have to ever pay cover charge anyway, so ladies night is your opportunity to to try and get as many free drinks as possible. Drinking at clubs can be expensive, but fear not as here are the 6 best clubs to let your hair down and make sure that you don’t accidentally spend $150 on Jager Bombs.
1. Attica - Free drinks and foot massages = heaven at Attica
No night in Clarke Quay is complete without coming to Attica at one point or another, and on Wednesday night’s it’s pretty much THE place to be.
Not only do you get SIX, that’s right, six free drinks, you also get free foot massages and other treats at their GLAM bar along with the chance to go home with a bag full of make up. So amazing that it seems too good to be true. Attica spares no expense on us ladies, and we love them for that. It’s no surprise that Attica's been around for 14 years when it whips out awesome deals like these.
It’s a super popular night so is best to RSVP on their Facebook page before 9pm Wednesday night. If you want to just wing it and turn up on the night, come before midnight and you still stand a chance to enjoy all of these goodies.
If you want to go all out and buy a table for the night, every group of 5 ladies or more also gets a free bottle of champagne. Attica, a big fat thank you from women everywhere.
Address: 3A River Valley Rd, 01-03, 179020
Opening Hours: Wednesday to Saturday: 10pm - 4:30am.
2. F Club - 10 free drinks EACH for the first 400 ladies
F club is probably one of the only clubs in Singapore that I’ve ever had to pay cover charge for, so thank goodness Wednesdays make an exception (unless there are special events). Not only do you get free entry, but if you’re one of the first 400 ladies to turn up from 9pm, you get 10 free drinks. You heard me right, your drinks are basically sorted for the whole night.
If you’re interested - and frankly who wouldn’t be - then you’ve got to make sure that you RSVP on this page, and be there before 9pm to make sure that you stand a chance being part of the first 400. The drinks can be enjoyed from 9pm to 3am, so don’t rush and use them all in the first hour and a half of being there, puking on the dancefloor is never a good look.
Free entry and the chance to not pay a dollar all night, this is a win-win situation. This is of course not the case if you’re the 401st lady to turn up. Then it’s not so great.
Address: 01-08, 3B River Valley Rd, 179021
Opening Hours: Wednesday: 9pm - 3am | Thursday and Friday: 10pm - 3am | Saturday: 10pm - 4am
3. Bang Bang - 6 free drinks whenever you arrive
If turning up at 9pm is not for you, Bang Bang lets you enjoy five free drinks as long as you RSVP online, and you can redeem them all until 12:30am. Turn up at 12am if you fancy, just be prepared to knock down a drink every 6 minutes in order to enjoy all the free ladies night fun.
When visiting Bang Bang, expect themed dressing up, cages to dance in and people dressed as bears, basically a normal nightclub, but weirder. They put tons of effort into making it a more ‘fun’ club than some of its rivals, so expect lots of energy and over the top madness. All of which will be a lot easier to handle after you’ve had those five free drinks of course.
Dress code is quite strict, so make sure no slippers or super casual clothes. Also, ladies you have to be 21+ to enter.
Address: Pan Pacific Singapore, 7 Raffles Boulevard, 039595
Opening Hours: Wed: 10am - 5am | Fri & Sat: 10pm - 6am
4. CANVAS - Free entry and endless vodka from 10pm-1am (while stocks last)
CANVAS is not only a nightclub. By day it’s also an art gallery, so coming here technically makes you artistic and smart, right? With different themed music playing each night, here Thursday night is ladies night and it’s all about the trap, hip-hop and twerk music to bring out the diva in us all. Even better is the free vodka mixes from 10pm-1am. That music, mixed with these drinks, is a guaranteed good night.
If this sounds like the kind of night for you and your friends, then you have to make sure that you RSVP on their Facebook page, and look out for their TurNup Thursday events.
CANVAS is well known for the vibe of their club, proudly not playing any repetitive house beats or remixed top 40 songs, instead bringing the best tunes every single night. When both entry and drinks are free to one of the most highly rated clubs in Singapore, ladies' night has never sounded so good.
Address: 20 Upper Circular Road, #B1-01 The Riverwalk, 058416
Opening Hours: Tue: 6:30pm - 2am | Wed & Fri: 5pm - 3am | Thu: 6:30pm - 3am | Sat: 8pm - 4am
5. Club Kyo - 4 hours of freeflow on selected drinks
Not only does Kyō have a fancy name, the club itself tries that little bit too hard to come off as a deep and artsy type, describing the entrance as “a doorway to myriad new pleasures unfurls before your sight”. We get it Kyō, it’s just a door. Although it may try just that little bit too hard, there’s no denying that their ladies night is one of Singapore's best.
Another Thursday night date to keep in your calendar, ladies get 4 hours (10pm-2am) of freeflow vodka cranberry and gin and tonic. Although there are only 2 drinks for freeflow, who doesn’t love a vodka cranberry? Even if you don’t, when they’re free you may just change your mind.
Once again you have to make sure that you RSVP on their Facebook page to enjoy the free drinks, and look out for their Hold It Ladies events. When it’s the longest bar in the city and the interior is decorated in the edgiest and most stylish ways, the reasons to visit Kyō get longer and longer.
Address: 133 Cecil Street, #B1-02, Keck Seng Tower, Singapore 069535
Opening Hours: Thu & Fri: 10pm - 3am | Sat: 10pm - 4am
6. CÉ LA VI - Free entry and drinks in Singapore’s most famous spot
It doesn't get much cooler than clubbing 200 metres above sea level on top of one of Singapore’s most famous landmarks, and free entry as well as free drink just makes the experience a whole lot sweeter. Whereas the poor fellas have to pay $28, we get in for a big fat $0.
Sure you don’t get as much free alcohol as some of the other ladies nights, but none of them are quite as famous as CÉ LA VI, and when it costs $23 alone just to get to Marina Bay Skydeck, going for free and getting a drink along the way is a deal you can’t refuse.
In February 2017, one lucky lady will get to walk away with a luxurious makeover experience by Samina Malik. Find out more here.
Address: SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands, Tower 3, 1 Bayfront Avenue, 018971
Opening Hours: Mon & Tue: 12pm - 2am | Wed & Fri: 12pm - 5am | Thu: 12pm - 4am | Sat: 11am - 5am | Sun: 11am - 2am
- Bars -
Sometimes the thought of going to a club after work just doesn’t do the trick. However, sitting in a bar enjoying cocktails and wine at crazy low prices may just be what you’re after. Here are 7 of the best bar/restaurant ladies night deals to get work out of your system and copious amounts of alcohol in.
1. Prive Clarke Quay - Cocktails galore in the heart of Clarke Quay
Right in the heart of Clarke Quay, Privé is the perfect spot either for pre-drinks, or to spend your whole night people watching as you hold on to your free cocktails. Not only are most drinks at half price from 5-9pm, but from 9pm-12am, you also get to enjoy 5 free cocktails too! A ladies night which is 7 hours long, sounds exactly like my kind of bar.
Not only can you dance the night away to live music, but if people-watching gets you in the mood to start some dancing of your own, all you need to do is step inside and watch the night progress as the DJ takes over. Or you could just keep sipping on your delicious free cocktail and watch your drunk friends try and dance like Nicki Minaj, depending on how many free drinks you’ve knocked back.
Don't forget to RSVP by 9pm on Wednesday nights, then just head down and have lots of free drinks, and take on the night however you fancy. Whether you want to drink and dance or just enjoy cocktails and chill, Prive has it all.

2. District 10 CQ - Food, perfect location and 1 for 1 drinks
District 10 has tons of locations, but for a ladies night there’s nowhere better than CQ. Not only on Ladies Nights do you get 1 for 1 shooters and cocktails, but from 6-9pm they also have 1 for 1 on selected beer, wine and house spirits. Perfect to wash down all those cheesy fries and fish and chips, which we all know you’ll end up buying.
It’s not the comfiest-looking spot and it most likely won’t be where you spend your entire night, but it’s the perfect place to start on the free drinks whilst also lining your stomach. It’s in a prime location to go off and explore what other free drinks you can find on our favourite night of the week - just don’t drink so much that your fish and chips make a reappearance later on.
On Ladies night's District 10 opens at 6 and doesn’t shut till 2am, giving you tons of time to eat as much junk food as you desire. Whether you just fancy a burger and a free cocktail while waiting for friends or if you plan to make full use of their deals, District 10 is definitely worth considering.

3. The Exchange - Here’s your chance to win a free holiday!

Free flow is 6-10pm, leaving you with more than enough time to go and hit the town after if the free booze has awoken the diva from within. When you stand a chance to win a holiday, you may as well make full use of what’s on offer to either celebrate if you do win or console yourself if you don’t.
Being in the CBD, it gives yet another reason as to why it’s perfect for after work drinks with your favourite gal pals. Perfect spot, amazing drink deals and the chance to win a holiday? It’s a no brainer as to why The Exchange is so popular.

Found on level 9 of M Hotel, for just $35 you get to enjoy free flow champagne, martinis and wine from 8pm to 1am. $35 for a full night out, and not a watered down mixer in sight.
When it could cost you just as much to even get into a club on a Saturday night, it makes a refreshing change to see that the deals we love mid-week can also be enjoyed at the weekend, with no guilt about having to wake up heavy headed for work the next day.
Girls just wanna have fun, and when that fun only costs $35 on a Saturday night, I’m there. Gather your girlfriends and clear your schedules - weekends have never looked so affordable.

To go with the fancy drinks, they also serve a whole load of spectacular looking food to go with it. From pan-seared salmon to grilled pork chop, you won't need to stop by McDonalds on the way home.
Sadly The Bank is only open until 12am, but that doesn’t mean that the night ends there. When you’re right in the CBD, a whole world of businesswomen letting loose on a wednesday night is right on your doorstep. So spread your champagne fuelled wings and fly!

6. Zafferano - Free flow prosecco and free pizza... Do you need another excuse?
This is the ultimate ladies night for all you girls who would much rather be at home eating takeaway pizza and watching Game of Thrones. For just $33 enjoy 3 hours of free-flow Prosecco, as well as free pizza bites from 6:30-7:30pm. If you needed further justification to go out on a Thursday night, this is the sign that you were looking for.
The saddest part of this deal is the fact that the free flow is only from 6-9pm. Although not the wildest of ladies nights, it does mean that there are still options for those who don’t want to wake up to hazy memories of the night before and trying not to throw up on the MRT.
Whether you want to go home and get in bed or hit the town once the clock strikes 9, you’re in Collyer Quay so the perfect spot to go out and head on your own little adventure.
With an extensive menu of mouth watering Italian delights, if the pizza doesn’t fill you up then feel safe in the comfort that linguine or oven baked cod is just an order away. Perhaps not for the party animals out there, but free pizza may just convince anyone.

Opening Hours: Monday to Wednesday: 5:30pm - 11:45pm | Friday to Saturday: 5:30pm - 1am
