Being a woman in Miami certainly has its benefits. We’ve got picturesque beaches, a plethora of brunch spots, plenty of spas and salons, and the ability to drink on any night of the week without so much as dropping a single penny.
The fact is, Miami’s ladies’ nights are a dime a dozen, offering dames everything from free champagne to complimentary cocktails.
Whether you’re waiting on that next paycheck to clear or you just can’t get enough of a good deal, here are some of the best places to be if you want to drink for free.
Wood Tavern: “Girls Rule” at everyone’s favorite tavern in Wynwood, especially on Wednesday nights when the gals get free well drinks from 8 p.m. to midnight. Gather your BFFs and enjoy the sounds of DJ Jenni Foxx while you sip on whiskey gingers into the late night.
- 2531 NW 2nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33127 (Wynwood)
The Bar: Open since 1946, The Bar has been a reliable provider of good times and great drinks for nearly 70 years. These days, the good times are especially great for ladies every Friday afternoon, when Ladies’ Night Happy Hour brings in the cubicle chicks from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 pm for free well cocktails and Yuengling drafts.

Town Kitchen & Bar: If you’ve made it to Thursday but the weekend still seems too far off, Town’s Ladies’ Night may have the cure for what ails you. Every Miss, Ms., and Mrs. is entitled to complimentary champagne from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., along with half-off Signature Martinis like the Towntini (Ketel One Orange Vodka and fresh juices) or the Town Lychee Martini (Smirnoff Citron Vodka and lychee puree). And if you’re a hardcore lush, Town’s got a real treat for you: “TGI Mondays,” where ladies get their first two drinks for free plus halfoff selected drinks from 4 p.m. to closing.

Purdy Lounge: There are few places in Miami where it’s basically guaranteed you’ll have a good time no matter what. One of those places is Purdy Lounge, located just far enough off South Beach to lack long lines and costly covers but still close enough to the action to keep things interesting. Thursdays get even more interesting for Purdy’s weekly Ladies’ Night, when every betty can get a little boozy with free drinks from 11 pm – 1 am.

Vue Nightclub: Located inside the old Off the Hookah Bayside location, this club knows exactly how to treat a lady. On “Temptation Thursdays,” party girls get in free and drink free all night long.

- 8669 NW 36th Street, Doral, FL 33166
Kill Your Idol and Lost Weekend: There are two sides to South Beach: the skin-tight dress and stilettos South Beach and the come-as-you-are, budget-friendly dive bar South Beach.

Yes, the long-standing Wednesday Night Ladies’ Night at Bougie’s is still going strong, with totally free drinks from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. for every gal on the block, plus live music, DJs, and plenty of inebriated moments you’ll enjoy reliving while looking through your Instagram the next morning.

Clear the bar and the dance floor every Tuesday night, when every daring dame comes out for free well drinks and free Blackbirds (their specialty house cocktail) from 10 p.m. to 1:30 am. The live music and DJs just make the night all the better.

Ladies who enjoy cold brews, sports or going to a ladies’ night in jeans and a T-shirt will be happy at any of the Ale House locations in Miami (from North Miami Beach to the Falls) on Thursday nights.
