Lillie’s has two locations to chose from for a wonderful night on the town for you and your group of friends — you can either head to their Times Square flagship or head downtown to their Union Square spot. The bar was named after Lillie Langtry, a successful actress and women’s rights advocate from the 19th century. Her namesake bar has all the amenities, such as a traditional menu, domestic and imported beers and an extensive liquor list that anyone needs to get a good bachelorette or a ladies night going.

Have a literature or history themed girls’ night in mind? Then head one over to Dear Irving, a fun cocktail parlor. Guests can have a beer in the 1960s, or try one of their timely cocktails, like  a “Gibson” – gin, dry vermouth, pickled onion in the roaring ‘20s — or a “Madame George –” whiskey, Cherry Heering, ginger, lime and club soda. The service is fantastic; the food is delicious and any ladies night or bachelorette will be nicely complemented by a visit to Dear Irving.

Why not start the night with just about any type of shot you can image? Barcelona Bar is the spot to “pre-game” a night on the town. Another fun aspect to Barcelona Bar is the “nerdy” themed drinks. The “Harry Potter,” which consists of a fun, flaming, show put on by the bartender, is not to be missed.

Thursday is Ladies Night at the Mad Donkey Beer Bar & Grill. Once you pay $10 at the door, ladies can get complimentary drinks from 8 -12 p.m. Located in Queens, it is noted for having one of the “best happy hour deals in Astoria.” The staff is friendly, the food is great and the bar has a more laid-back, dive vibe.
