Kick back with your crew at the 10,000-square-foot Wynwood food hall 1-800-Lucky, which gathers seven eateries, two bars, a karaoke room, and a small convenience store/record shop under one vibrant roof. Thursdays from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m., ladies score select free bar drinks that can be enjoyed anywhere on the premises. Stick around for entertainment: Beginning at 8, the venue throws its Ripefruit Party with DJ Craze.
Free and discounted well drinks are available at the Anderson Thursday nights.
This '80's-themed Upper Eastside lounge has ladies' night covered Thursdays when the mixologists behind the bar's unique craft cocktails menu shake free well spirits from 8 to 9 p.m. Pro tip: Pair those drinks with made-to-order tacos. Drinks cost $3 from 9 to 10, and well cocktails cost just $6 from 10 to 11. A rotating schedule of live musicians and DJs provides the beats.
Drink up before karaoke on the Pineapple Stage.

You've downed plenty of drinks and indulged in a filling dinner, so what's next for your girls' night out in Miami? Of course it's dancing. Because of its genuinely unpretentious vibe, Ball & Chain on Calle Ocho is one of the best nightspots in town. While enjoying free well drinks from 8 to 10 p.m., dance your Wednesday night away, or get your karaoke on in front of an audience on the iconic Pineapple Stage. For a break from dancing and singing, people-watch from the indoor or outdoor bar. Arrive early to avoid the long line to get inside.

Head to Basement with your phone fully charged — the lounge inside the Miami Beach Edition is one of the most Instagram-worthy spots in South Florida. Offering a nightclub, a bowling alley, and an ice-skating rink, the venue treats girl squads to complimentary ice-skating in its 2,000 square-foot neon indoor rink every Wednesday. Then it's on to sipping free boozy slushies from 10 p.m. to midnight and dancing to killer beats.
Cantina la Veinte 495 Brickell Ave., Miami
Planning your next fun girls' trip to Mexico? While you're trying to coordinate, this Mexican cantina in Brickell will do the trick. Cantina la Veinte, located inside the Icon Brickell, offers free margaritas every Wednesday from 5 to 10 at its upstairs and downstairs bars. If you and your friends are single, this is also a great place to mingle. The atmosphere is festive and casual, and people pop in and out all night.
