How to Run the Best Girl's Night in 5 Easy Steps
It’s no secret that girls night gets kind of a bad rap. The same tired pink decor, the same no-cover charge, the same syrupy-sweet drinks and sub-par snacks. It’s time to change that with an amped-up girl’s night that will draw in guests and keep them coming back for more.
Here, we’ll show you just how easy it is to deliver a girl’s night at your bar or restaurant that’s a step above the rest and offers a great experience.
1. Keep it on the Same Night Each Week
The simplest thing you can do to make your girl’s night a success is keeping the schedule consistent. Whether it’s Women’s night Wednesday or Ladies night Tuesday—doing the same night and time each week will make it easier for guests to remember the details and come back for more if they enjoy their experience.
2. Do Female-Inspired Trivia
Sure, girl’s night is still fun and will attract guests if you give girls a reason to get together, but you can elevate the experience with female-inspired trivia. Rather than sticking to a specific theme (like typical Sex in the City-style trivia) create your own with questions about female actresses, singers, politicians, scientists, famous women in history and more. Trivia is always fun and making it extra-special for girl’s night will make the experience even better.
3. Create Themes, Drinks and Specials
This is where you can really differentiate yourself from the countless other bars that hold weekly girl’s nights. Maybe it's a Women and Wine night, where you offer samples of regional wines and small tasting plates of cheeses, breads and other accoutrement. Or, try Martinis and Manicures and hire a local manicurist to provide high-quality manicures and offer drink specials on all martinis.
If you’re not feeling creative, have your bartenders create themed drinks or drink specials to entice guests to come. Avoid the tired Cosmopolitan and try other, more modern drinks or special, craft cocktails for a truly unique experience.
4. Have Giveaways and Special Presentations
Including special presenters that can deliver an educational element or allow for items to be purchased is another great way to draw guests in. Things like Pampered Chef, Thirty One, Mary Kay and more have plenty of sales representatives that enjoy coming to events much like this and educating the crowd on a topic of choice and allowing for purchase of their products. The best part? They will market your event and you can market theirs—so it’s a win-win and you’ll both bring in more customers than you would alone.
5. Put on the Right Playlists
Part of getting the party started is having the right music pumping through your speakers. One wrong choice or off song and you’ll likely lose the crowd. Keep the energy levels up and the fun flowing with playlists custom-built for your audience by music-obsessed playlist curators. With the right music for the right people at the right time, you’ll have guests become repeat customers and spreading the word about your ladies night in no time.
