Girls Night Out in Reno

Nightlife — By christinanellemann on November 8, 2011 at 7:00 am

The ladies can have fun by themselves in the Biggest Little City just like the men. There are numerous events, bars, restaurants and nightclubs that are friendly to women and offer specials on drinks, food and other libations. So, no matter what night you decide to hit the town here are a few places that will welcome you and your girlfriends.

Start Out with Dinner
Start the night out with dinner at several local restaurants. If you want to keep to your budget (and save money for the drinks) head to the Silver Peak brewery downtown where you can order everything from burgers and fries to red curry shrimp or pistachio-encrusted salmon. For a splurge, head to Beaujolais Bistro where the cute waiters serve up excellent French food including frogs legs and rack of lamb.

Dessert Time!
Girls love their desserts and what’s better than desserts and drinks together? The Chocolate Bar on Arlington offers small dessert plates and signature cocktails and specializes in chocolate delights such as chocolate fondue with cake and fresh fruit, chocolate Napolean, and Tiramisu. Their cocktails run the gamut from the Red Lotus with pomegranate vodka and cocoa syrup and and the German Chocolate with coconut rum and hazelnut liqueur.

Bar Hopping
The Sapphire Lounge at Harrah’s in downtown Reno hosts a ladies’ night on the first Friday of every month. 2-for-1 drink specials are available all night long for the ladies and the DJ will be spinning the latest hits. The chic and classy 2500 East Lounge at the Grand Sierra Resort also caters to the ladies with weeknights from 5-7 offering free martinis and drink specials.

Dance the Night Away
If you and your friends want to spend the rest of the night working off that dessert, stay in the Grand Sierra Resort and head to the Pearl Champagne Lounge where there are cool DJs and go-go dancers. For even more fun, head to the gay and lesbian bar, Tronix, where  the dance floor is energetic  and flashy with laser lights and a smoke machine. You might even be there on a night when one of their popular drag queen shows is being performed.
