Looking to escape the guys and hang out with just the girls? District 6 has introduced the Ladies Living-Room Getaway – a night exclusively for the girls.
Held from 7pm every Tuesday night in the sumptuous surroundings of the club’s VIP/Corporate rooms, the event includes a delectable selection of weekly-changing hors d’oeuvres, wines, cocktails and the ultimate chick flick show Sex and the City.
Offering the ideal mid-week getaway, the event is the perfect place to catch up on gossip, enjoy a glass of wine, or two, sit back, and relax, all in elegant, comfortable surroundings.
My friend and I were one of the first to arrive, so there was ample choice of where to sit. We chose one of the large, comfortable sofas festooned with cushions, and settled in for the evening. The venue quickly started to fill up.
We surveyed the drinks list. The cocktails looked tempting. We both ordered ourselves a Flirtini – triple sec, vodka, champagne and a dash of pineapple juice (not for the faint-hearted). It hit the right spot and offered the ideal way to de-stress from a busy day at work.
There were ample nibbles to fill our bellies on offer, and my guest and I piled our plates high with a gourmet selection of cheeses, crackers, fruits and piping hot calamari. Dinner plans quickly went out of the window.
Once we had had our fill and all were settled down, we sat back and lost ourselves in the world of four young successful Manhattan girls – Samantha, Carrie, Charlotte and Mirranda. And, of course, ordered ourselves a second cocktail.
The Ladies Living-Room Getaway is held every Tuesday, 7pm to 10pm. Entrance is $20, which includes all you can drink, hors d’oeuvres, entertainment, games and prizes. A tarot reader is planned for 22 May.
The Living-Room Getaway also hosts a book exchange on the last Tuesday of every month. Prizes and giveaways at the end of each evening, with gift baskets and spa vouchers up for grabs.
