The Definitive Guide To Ladies Night Promos In Singapore That Don’t Involve Alcohol

Singaporeans are exceptional consumers. We’re all suckers for stuff like fancy packaging, free stuff, and promotions.

1-for-1 meals, 3-for-2 promotions, refer-a-friend credits, you name it, we have it. Of course, not forgetting the Ladies Night promotions. However, most Ladies Night promotions are for alcohol.

If you’re one of those who cannot hold their liquor, we’ve found a few ladies night promotions that don’t involve alcohol.

For The Ladies Who Don’t Drink

1. Yakiniku Jan Jan

Vegans look away.

Due to popular demand, Yakiniku Jan Jan is bringing back their Ladies Night promotion.

Every Wednesday, ladies get to enjoy their All-You-Can-Eat at 50% off!

Yakiniku Jan Jan is known for their affordable, tender grilled meats. Choose from 4 types of meat – US and Japanese beef, Pork, Chicken or Lamb. With cuts such as Wagyu starting from prices as low as $10++, this is a steal.

If boutique tea houses are your thing, you’ll love this dainty yet unique one.

Arteastiq is a teahouse/restaurant/art jam studio tucked away in Mandarin Gallery.

That means a full fancy 3-course meal (normally $48) prepared just for us!

For appetisers, the ambassadors had the signature pan seared duck foie gras.


Next up was the Herb-Crusted Codfish served on a bed of mash potatoes, asparagus, scallops and balsamic reduction sauce – a dish that was crunchy on the surface, while tender underneath.


Other must tries are the Australian Wagyu ribeye with sweet potato fries, and mango strudel that has actual popping candy in it.


To complete our meal was an exclusive range of teas, brewed pot by pot on the spot with the finest tea leaves and herbs. (Psst! They even have alcoholic ones!)

Whether or not you got the chance to go to Ultra Singapore, it’s hard to miss the hype that took over all our social media platforms.

We sent a whole bunch of our ambassadors down to join in the fun at the hottest party this year!


Just like last year, the 2-day electronic dance music festival in Singapore was ultra wet, ultra muddy, and ultra amazing!


We partied the day and night away to music by headlining DJs, including Hardwell, Nicky Romero, Steve Aoki, Dash Berlin, Steve Angello, Tiësto, and Don Diablo.


Other famous names include Dubfire, Martin Solveig, Nic Fanciulli, Sasha & John Digweed and Showtek.

With stunning lights, visuals, sound and special effects, it was easy to stay upbeat and pumped even through the rain.


You know a party is ultra good when it’s hard to go for one set and not have #FOMO from passing up on the others; that’s exactly how we felt about Ultra Singapore’s crazy line-up this year!

[caption id="attachment_15707" align="alignnone" width="630"]b2ap3_thumbnail_sisters Source: The Smart Local[/caption]

Did you know that Singapore is actually part of an archipelago? Singapore is made up of 63 islands with both natural and artificial islands. Well-known islands include Sisters island, Kusu island and St Johns island.

Some of these islands are accessible by boat and will make for a nice relaxing day trip. However, pack your own food as most of them don’t have food places. An excuse to have a nice romantic picnic!

There are also lagoons around some of the islands where you and your date can take a dip and chill.
