Where to Drink Free Every Night of the Week in Miami (If You're a Lady)

Page 2 of 2


Gramps, 176 NW 24th St., Miami; 305-699-2669;
Wood ain't the only ladies night in Wynwood. On Thursday nights from 9 to 11 p.m., ladies drink free at Gramps. After that they offer specials including $16 bottles of champagne, all to a soundtrack selected by Reid Waters.

Purdy Lounge, 1811 Purdy Ave., Miami Beach; 305-531-4622;
As long as you have a designated driver, you can partake in a four-hour stretch of free drinking on Thursdays. After Gramps starts charging, you can make it to Purdy Lounge where, from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m., ladies drink free.

Sidebar Miami337 SW 8th St., Miami; 786-703-6973;
It's hard to beat this one. Ice Cream Thursday at Sidebar means not only are there free drinks for women from 9 p.m. to midnight, but they can also satisfy their sweet tooth with a free dessert of Jameson-infused ice cream. Heaven is real. God is good. 

The Bar, 
172 Giralda Ave., Coral Gables; 305-442-2730;
Make sure to get out of work early on Friday afternoon so you can make it to Coral Gables for the Bar's happy hour, where from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. ladies drink free well cocktails and Yuengling. DJ Louis Arson starts his set at the tail end of happy hour, playing music from 7 to 10 p.m., and the rest of the night DJ iCue takes control of the playlist.


Ok, so here's where things get tough. Saturday is traditionally not when ladies night makes financial sense. It's not hard to draw a crowd on Saturday night because everyone wants to go out on Saturday. So, this is a night where you might have to depend on a house party if you want to drink free. But if you're willing to commute and haven't thrown out that college ID yet, the Broward Latin joint Conga's Night Club in Sunrise offers all women free entry on Friday and Saturday nights and free drinks until midnight if you have a valid college ID. How weird are you willing to get for your free drinks? Sunday

ROK:BRGR, 5800 SW 73rd St., South Miami; 305-663-6099;
The gastropub offers free mimosas to ladies who brunch during their Sunday Social Brunch from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. because everyone knows orange juice and champagne help make your french toast go down smoother — or, at the very least, make it seem like a good idea to use that french toast as a pillow.
