The origin of the “ladies’ night” trend is unclear. Perhaps it was an attempt made by men to try and lure single women into bars since ladies didn’t really have the tendency to spend their time in such places (we know this isn’t the case now), we don’t really know. But one thing is certain though – it worked.

If you are looking for a list of best Thursday ladies night Miami has to offer, you came to the right place. Here are some of the most popular and highest rated Miami bars that feature this trend:

Another must-visit, indoor/outdoor bar is BlackBird Ordinary.

The Wynwood Yard

We loved the diverse selection of food in The Wynwood Yard. The food trucks are so great that we wanted to try a little something from each and every one of them. Drinks are very affordable, especially during happy hours. Great people and atmosphere too!

Purdy Lounge

A great lounge-like bar with awesome music and cheap drinks. Great for late night hookups (we met some extremely cute guys there!).


Red wine and cheeseRating: 4.5 stars out of 5 on Yelp (600+ reviews)

Lagniappe is a place with insanely high Yelp rating, so you know it must for a good reason. It doesn’t matter if you prefer shots, cocktails, beer or wine, this bar has it all.

Their food options are also very satisfactory: they have meat, fish, and chicken entrees, while the “build-your-own” cheese plate is also quite delicious, especially if you are a wine fan – all this in a very homely ambiance.

RedBar Brickell

If you are looking for an unpretentious mixology, good craft beer and classic board game, RedBar Brickell is a must!

Sidebar is an indoor and outdoor venue that offers good music, affordable drinks, diverse food trucks, a pool table, while the atmosphere is a perfect mix of homely and wild.

Ball & Chain is the bar with the longest tradition on our list. It was opened back in 1935 and it soon became one of the most popular places for late night haunts. Some of the best and most famous jazz musicians liked to visit this place, including: Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Count Basie, and Chet Baker.

American Social

Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5 on Yelp (500+ reviews)

American Social is a very nice and fancy bar overlooking the Miami River. The setting is beautiful, while their selection of local and regional craft beers is simply endless, but those looking for traditional cocktails won’t be disappointed either. Definitely one of the best and most fun Thursday ladies night Miami has to offer.
