I recently met a woman friend of mine for dinner at Lola’s Kitchen and Wine Bar (180 W Park Ave) on a Thursday night . While sipping my martini at the bar I noticed groups of women….from a variety of generations…coming into to Lola’s one after another. Thursday night at Lola’s is “Girls Night Out!” and what a great deal it is. On Thursday nights, Marco and his staff offer an extensive $15 dinner menu, $15 bottles of wine, $15 pitchers of Sangria, the most adorable $5 martinis and most importantly a warm, comfortable atmosphere where women can come relax and unwind with friends.
And the food was great. My friend decided on the fish(which included a salad)….ate every bite and raved. I decided on a steak quesadilla…not part of the special menu…but one of my favorite dishes at Lola’s. (and costs below $15 as well!) Eddie, the bartender, shook us up a couple of perfect martinis (my friend and I consider this a form of art!). We chose to sit and dine at the bar…from our vantage point I couldn’t help but notice the groups of women coming through the front door and filling both the bar and the dining room.
Originally, when I told my boyfriend I was going to Lola’s on a Thursday night…he said “but that’s ladies night…”
His assumption was that there would be a lot of men there looking to meet women. The night I was there…there were 2, maybe 3 men at Lola’s. Instead, what impressed me was the various ages of the women coming simply for good conversation, a good meal, and nice atmosphere all for an extremely reasonable price. All women should check out Lola’s on a Thursday…it was great.
I have a feeling, though, that as more men hear about “Girls Night Out”, they will be checking out Lola’s as well!
