As important as it is to do a date night with your honey, it’s always good to put aside some girl bonding time. Here are some ideas for a girls night out in Cincinnati!

Try your artsy side

Painting classes have really taken off. Painting with a Twist, which has two locations in the Cincinnati area, is BYOB, so you’ll be able to bring your fave drinks and snacks!

You also can try Eat, Drink, Paint. These classes are set up at different locations around the area. Before you grab a paintbrush, you can play some games. I recommend Dance, Dance, Revolution, but I don’t recommend heels for that. Food also is provided for this one!

Other options include pottery classes and even glass making at Brazee.

See a chick flick … or not

You always can hit up the theater for what is going on now or, my personal favorite, find a movie on Netflix and bring your own snacks.

The best way that we’ve always done it is to have each person bring one thing. One person orders the pizza, someone else brings the drinks and another person supplies the chips and dip.

Spend your evening chilling and watching a movie that we know we’ll all talk through.


There are a number of bars to check out. Put on your best party dress and head on over to the numerous bars and clubs in the city.

If you need some help picking a place in a certain area, we’ve already mapped out a few places for you here.

Be sure to meet up beforehand and get ready together! We’ve taken so many silly selfies with our hair half-straightened.

Treat yourself

Why save the fancy dates for your partner?

Get dressed up in the fanciest outfit and find your way to an equally fancy place. Find an upscale restaurant to check out here.

Remember, ladies, you can treat yourself, too.
