There are many options when it comes to night time events or parties here in NYC.
Summer is here! And it's time to go out on the town again! There are quite a few cool parties and events where you're
likely to meet the mistress of your dreams.
I have to tell you
that at times life gets in the way and I'm unable to list here the
latest and greatest events, in time, as they arrive into my inbox.
However I will list for every event the url/source so you can go check
out the latest updates on your own, should this article not be updated
in a timely basis. My apologies about that.
So, here are updates as of Summer 2013.
a cool all girl magazine does take the time to have the latest updates,
nationwide, so here I am inserting the link that will take you to the
latest girl listings around the country, not just NYC. So, have fun!!
Please visit their website for the latest updates on events and girlie related issues.

FOR THE STEADY PLACES TO GO OUT, SEE BELOW:
OPEN EVERYDAY OF THE WEEK:
The places listed below are always open and
welcoming to women, so you can visit those at anytime of the week or
the year, and you can even dare to walk in by yourself. It's okay. No
one will bother you, unless you want to...
1. Henrietta Hudson (corner of Hudson and Morton Streets in the West Village
438 Hudson Str. (@ Morton St), NYC, NY 10014 (212) 924-3347
Mon-Fri 4pm-4am - Sat-Sun 2pm-4am
A cool club for women. They have 2 bars and a dance
floor. From Wednesday thru Sunday they have in-house DJs spinning the
latest and most popular tunes. Every night they have something going
on. For more information check out their website: http://www.henriettahudson.com/.
I'd say it is the place where most women go. Many may differ with me
but while the other places are smaller, this one offers the most
options in entertainment.
The blend of women ranges through all colors of
the rainbow and types: femme, masculine and in between. The older
generation women tend to complaint a bit about the "young crowd" on
Fridays and Saturday nights, but I have seen a good number of older and
professional types hang out there anyway, especially on weekdays during
the "afterwork" hours (5-9pm).
So, come and check it out after work!
21 to enter. Credit cards and debit cards accepted, with ID.
2. Cubby Hole
(281 W. 12th Street - @ West 4th Street) 212 243-9041
is a cozy little bar to meet that special date or just to hang out
after work. It draws a very nice blend of women as well. It is small
though, but cozy enough to keep you. Perfect for a quiet date,
especially early in the week. Can't guarantee that on weekends though.
It gets nice and packed and it has a great jukebox with a wonderful
selection of music for all tastes. So you can actually be your own DJ.
Actually this bar reminds me of the first Cubby Hole back in the 80's.
Similarly nice crowd. It's set in a romantic little neighborhood with
outdoor cafes. It is boy-friendly but you find mostly women there.
They also have a Happy Hour: 4-7pm on weekdays and 2-7 on weekends.
3. Ruby Fruit Bar & Grill
(531 Hudson St. - a couple of blocks north of Henrietta Hudson)
CLOSED - I know. I was sad to hear it too.
The places below I have not checked in the past 12 months. So, before you head out there, please call and make sure they are open.

FRIDAYS AND SATURDAYS
Great date spots, not necessarily gay.
Great Balcony Bar @ Met Museum
5th Avenue and 82nd Street – Central Park East
Fridays and Saturdays at the Met Museum (4-8:30pm)
Great Balcony Bar: F, S 4-8:30; Music: 5:00-8:00
Cocktails and appetizers served on the balcony
overlooking the Great Hall. Full bar. Live classical music. Located on
the second floor. Friday and Saturday: 4:00–8:30 p.m
Okay, so this is not a girl-only event. This is
open to all public. However, it is one of my favorite date spots. If
you work for a major corporation, it is possible that by presenting
your ID, you can get in for free, due to corporate membership. So, make
sure to check out the Met Museum website or your employer’s personnel
office. It IS worth the trip uptown. A romantic and beautiful setting.
You can always head downtown for a nice dinner and dancing later on.
Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth & SPC
American Museum of Natural History
175 Central Park W # 208 (Bet. 74th and 75th Streets) (212) 769-5100
The American Museum of Natural History, in
collaboration with MTV2, has launched SonicVision, a groundbreaking
digitally animated alternative music show. SonicVision is presented
every Friday and Saturday evening at 7:30 and 8:30 p.m., in the Hayden
Planetarium at the Museum's Rose Center for Earth and Space.
SonicVision takes audiences in the Hayden
Planetarium Space Theater on a mind-warping musical roller-coaster ride
through fantastical dreamspace. With a mix by Moby and featuring tracks
from Radiohead, U2, David Bowie, Coldplay, Queens of the Stone Age,
Prodigy, The Flaming Lips, Fischerspooner, Spiritualized, Audioslave,
Stereolab, Boards of Canada, David Byrne and Brian Eno, Goldfrapp,
Zwan, White Zombie, and Moby, the music ignites this one-of-a-kind
computer-generated musical and visual experience, which uses
next-generation digital technology to illuminate the Planetarium's dome
with a dazzling morphing of colorful visions. [Another great idea for
those of you music lovers. Again, not a girl-only event but certainly
worth checking out. You can take it anywhere from there!]

PARTY FOR PROFESSIONAL WOMEN
