8 Fun Spots to Try for Your Next Ladies’ Night Out
...And not all of them are bars
Gals' night out is the funnest night of the month--but after the same old drinks at the same old bar, it’s time to spice up your routine. Here’s how to have the best night ever.
Sip Classy Cocktails at Dutch Fred’s
Fire up your Instagram, because these cocktails are almost too beautiful to drink. From the Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang (gin, blackberry puree, lemon and Champagne) and the Kinky Boots (vodka, St. Germain and raspberry), there’s something for every member of your crew.
307 W. 47th St. (at Eighth Ave.) 646-918-6923 or dutchfreds.com
Get Pampered at Juvenex Spa
This 24-hour oasis features soaking ponds, steam rooms, saunas and a jade treatment room. Because hey, sometimes you just want to hop into a dry sauna with eight of your BFFs at midnight.
25 W. 32nd St. (at Fifth Ave.); 646-733-1330 or juvenexspanyc.com
This musical has a gorgeous score by Sara Bareilles, a girl-power performance by Tony winner Jessie Mueller and mason jar pies to eat at intermission. There’s no better Broadway show to see with your best friends.

Try Absinthe at Apotheke
It’s Saturday night--let’s paint the town green. This apothecary-style bar has 13 different varieties of absinthe prepared traditionally…which basically means it’s poured into a giant contraption, laced with sugar and lit on fire. Like we said, it’s Saturday.

Hit the Roof at Press Lounge
Get ready to kick back, sip a Sierra Madre (a delicious combo of vodka, strawberry, pineapple and basil) and enjoy one of the best damn views in the city.

Dine at a Top-Secret Restaurant
If you run in a squad of four, book a table at the super-secret East Village spot Dinnertable. Split entrées, but you’ll want the homemade espresso Choco Taco allllll to yourself.
206 Ave. A (at 13th St.); dinnertable.nyc
Jazz It Up at The Heath
The guys behind Sleep No More are known for their impeccably designed spaces, and this '20s-inspired restaurant is no exception. Best of all, there’s live music every Friday and Saturday night. Wear your dancing shoes.
