Sometimes, us ladies need a good GNO to let loose and and kick back with our gaggle of girlfriends. Whether its a night of dancing on tables or catching a sunset with a glass of rosé, we don’t need a reason to get together with our squad—especially when Galentine's Day (February 13) is coming up. Here, we rounded up six fun spots around South Florida that can't wait to greet your girl gang.
Pull out all the stops when you're headed to Miami's latest hot spot, STK Miami, with your girl gang on a Friday night. There, treat yourself to the steakhouse's Lip Service special, which churns out the best deals for ladies to enjoy starting from 5 pm. Some menu standouts include small bites like Lil' BRGs made with wagyu beef and served with Parmesan truffle fries on the side. Once you've filled up on starters, keep the rounds coming with cocktails like the passion pit made with Grey Goose, passion fruit, lemon, and basil, and cucumber stiletto served with Kettle One Citroen, St. Germaine, muddled cucumber, and mint. Recently spotted here: former President Barack Obama's daughter, Sasha. 1100 Biscayne Blvd., Miami, 305-722-7888
The day calls for rosé all day (well, at least from Wednesday through Saturday) when ladies get together to indulge in a complimentary glass of the vino from 4:30 to 6:30pm at The Deck's "Sunset Hour." Start the experience in style by arriving by boat before grabbing a cabana to pass the afternoon with libations. When you're taking a break from drinking and people (or yacht) watching, kick back and snap picturesque sunset and downtown Miami views. from this creme-de-la-creme outdoor lounge that caters to the city’s elite. 888 MacArthur Causeway, Miami Beach, 786-479-3443
European flare is hardly lacking on South Beach, but with the addition of New York-famed party bistro, Bagatelle, your GNOs got that much sexier in the Magic City. Kick it off with a sophisticated dinner filled with dishes like demi poulet rôti à la truffe (a half farm-raised truffled chicken with country-style potatoes, caramelized cipollini, button mushrooms, and thyme chicken jus) or the filet mignon de boeuf served with creamy barley risotto and black trumpet mushrooms, and topped with Marchand de Vin sauce. But the best part of the night might be when the bottles of Champagnes (with sparklers, of course) start flowing and the DJ begins his set. Don’t be surprised if you see some ladies table dancing when that clock strikes 12. 220 21st St., Miami Beach, 305-704-3900
How about having a girls' night out when you can have fun while being healthy? It's definitely possible, thanks to Fort Lauderdale fixture, Coco Asian Bistro + Bar. From gluten-free pad thai to specialty rolls like the daimyo maki (tuna, hamachi, salmon, asparagus, avocado, scallions, and masago), you and your squad can nosh on savory Asian dishes, while indulging in the Thursday Ladies' Night drink specials from 7 to 10 pm, which includes a premium martini or special wine.

This 24-hour French brasserie (with a touch of Brazilian) is calling all ladies to enjoy sultry bossa nova acoustics on Tuesdays. Or, head over on Wednesdays to catch some Brazilian jazz, and to sip on cocktails like the scarf dancer (Tito’s Handmade Vodka, St. Germaine Liqueur, lemon juice, black currant, and ginger ale) or the caipirinha de maracuja (Leblon Cachaca, passion fruit, agave, and Sprite).
