All right ladies, it’s time to strap on those heels, grab your clutch and bring your best gal pals because it’s Ladies Night in the city. While happy hours are fun and drink specials are good during the week, we want something a little more happening. Ladies Night in the Twin Cities is great way to mix it up with your girlfriends and indulge in some stellar drink deals. This list offers the best ladies night spots in the Twin Cities.
Pink Park AFTER DARK — Pickle Park
7820 Northeast University Avenue
Fridley, MN 55432
Ladies Night: Thurs. 9pm-Midnight
Every Thursday over at G.B. Leighton’s Pickle Park, ladies are welcomed with open arms to a huge dance floor, oversized bar and free drinks! From 9 p.m. to midnight, all the ladies drink for free while guys get 3-4-1s and 2-4-1s throughout the night. Local radio personality Lucas from KDWB hosts the evening and DJ Joe Danger blasts the latest and greatest tunes.

5001 American Boulevard
Bloomington, MN 55437
Ladies Night: Thurs. 9:30-11:30 p.m.
If Pickle Park is your north-of-the-city stop, make Oak City your south-of-the-city stop for another great Ladies Night outing. Every evening at Oak City, the dining room transforms from a formal eating atmosphere to a club of sorts. But, it’s on Thursdays that the ladies are the focus. From 9:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., ladies, we drink for free! Taking the flare of downtown and bringing it to the suburbs is the goal, and is accomplished well. If you’re looking for the thrill of a club without all the hassle of parking, Oak City is a great ladies night destination.
