Hear the term "Ladies' Night" in Dubai and you'll be forgiven for thinking of a room packed to the brim full of women who can barely hear each other over the thumping music and crashing of glasses. But this new Ladies' Night in the Emirate hopes to change that notion with a fun-filled evening for the most fabulous of females.
Cocktail Kitchen in the city's JLT neighborhood is launching a twice-monthly event which offers a lot more than just free wine from 8-11.p.m. On the first and last Tuesday of each month, guests are invited to join a "meaningful yet sassy" talk in the Back Room of the trendy bar and restaurant, described as a "playful hub created to inspire, empower and connect the female community."
Each event will feature a talk from an inspirational #bosslady (starting with Aimee Changco, founder of Baembu on July 12) plus a side dish of talent (in the form of live painting with Maddy Butcher this week). The creative network of females will focus on showcasing startups and connecting ladies in the region to growing businesses in the region. Who knows, your new BFF could be behind the next big thing in the Middle East!
