Temperatures have dropped a bit in South Florida — not even close to the lows the rest of the country is feeling, but enough to justify warming up with a night of cocktail-fueled debauchery with your girl gang.

There are plenty of fantastic women-friendly restaurants, bars, and lounges all over South Florida, and we've rounded up the ones with the hottest deals on drinks and food for you and the ladies to enjoy during the week.

Whether you're looking for a night of dancing to all of your favorite oldies or a great place for a quiet cryfest over dinner on the waterfront, we've got a GNO (girls' night out) list that's tailor-made for you.
