It’s time for your lady friends to drop the guys, leave the kids at home, and ditch the drama. Let your girl day turns into ladies night out.
1. Grab Your Workout Buddy and Try A New Fitness Class
Working out is always better with friends. Modo Hot Yoga offers hot yoga, pilates, and barre to get you bikini body ready. With three locations (Cincinnati, Clifton, and NKY) and tons of class options, there aren’t any excuses to not show up. They offer $5 charity classes and $8 community classes! Sign up with your girlfriends and keep each other accountable.
2. Throw An Adult Tea Party
Have a tea at The BonBonerie. Go pinkies up as you sip crème brulee flavored tea out of fanciful teapots, eat delicate finger sandwiches, and petit fours. The scones, quiche, and clotted cream will make you feel aptly British. This lady-like tea will leave you feeling posh and ready to take on the rest of your girly activities.
3. Pamper Your Body and Soul At a Relaxing Day Spa
Spas are the ultimate pathway to relaxation. With so many great deals on Groupon snag half price massages or mani/pedis to prep for your night out. There are tons of great spa options in Cincinnati. We love Woodhouse Day Spa, with over 70 treatments to choose from. Try their signature Four-Handed Massage or Minkyti Facial.
4. Enjoy Patio Dining While Catching Up With Friends
Patio lunching is a must for girls day. Lavomatic in OTR has a great upstairs patio. Order a pitcher of mimosas. Get some low-key eats, choosing from their wide selection of salads and sandwiches. Tanning and lunch? You’ve just checked two things off your to-do list.
5. Peruse Your Favorite Farmer’s Market
Walk through a local farmers market to pick up a few goodies. Acknowledge that neither of you cook, so it’s best to snag those pre-made items. Hyde Park Farmer’s Market has tons of options from produce to desserts. We love the grab and go eats from Blue Oven, Street Pops, and the Eaton Farm.
6. Splurge On a Shopping Spree At Local Boutiques
Every lady loves finding great deals on something chic. Some of our frequent favorites are Sloane Boutique, Mica 12/v and Leeli + Lou, offering fashion forward clothing and accessories that you won’t find anywhere else in the city. Play dress up here while you put together your going out look.
7. I Scream! You Scream! We’re Getting Gelato!
Head to Buonna Terra or Dojo Gelato immediately, heaven awaits you. They also have crepes and gourmet desserts. Gelato is healthier than ice cream and frozen yogurt, having a lower butterfat ratio so you’ve got a great excuse to indulge. #NoShame.
8. Enjoy A Glass of Wine While Trying Your Hand at Painting
Cheers to Art offers a Ladies Night with wine specials, 20% off boutique items, snacks, and a drawing for a free art lesson. Who doesn’t want to try their artistic hand drunk painting with girlfriends? They also have Mimosa Afternoons on Sundays, with your first mimosa free! Even if you aren’t the most artistically inclined, this is a great bonding experience.
9. A Casual Patio Ambience while Tasting Wine Flights
Take a stroll around Hyde Park Square and end up at Unwind Wine Bar. It’s the perfect girls night out spot. With a massive wine selection and appetizers to spoil your dinner, this is a great first stop to begin the evening. The patio sets the perfect mood for a festive night with friends.
10. Indulge in Terrace Cocktails
Elevate happy hour to the next level. The 21c Cocktail Terrace is the best rooftop bar in the city. This hide-a-way let’s you enjoy our beautiful city views while sipping poptails. You read that correctly, popsicle cocktails.
11. Exercise While Drinking
The Pedal Wagon let’s you book Hair of the Dog Crawls, Globetrotter Trips, and Progressive Dinners. You’ll pedal bar to bar with girlfriends while getting wastey faced. This pub crawl gets you into hidden gem bars and even offers discounted drinks! Be sure to sign up in advance, or rent out the whole wagon for your party of 15.
12. Win Enough Cash To Treat Yo’ Self
If you’re not ready to go home, end the night at the Horseshoe Casino. Since this rowdy night out has left you hungry try Margaritaville, Binions, or the Buffet. You and your gal pals can fill up before hitting the blackjack table. Have a drink in one of their cocktail lounges then bet big! From slots to poker, there are tons of ways to spend the rest of your cash. Winner buys the next round.
No more group texts about where to go or what to do. Take a pick from this list to plan your perfect evening with girlfriends. Girls night out just got a whole lot more fun!
