If it’s Thursday, Friday or Saturday night and all you want to do is put on your dancing shoes and show off that “little black dress” with the ladies by your side, Avec Nightclub is your spot. This is the perfect place to let loose to the hottest jams and show off that “too-hot-to-trot” attitude that gets buried under piles of 9-5 work. All the gang needs to do is call or text the dedicated number before 10:30 p.m. to reserve a table and get in the door for free. The Parisian-style decor makes you feel like you’re spinning on the dance floor at a grand European ball, only with the California-bred convenience and comforts of home. The bottle service is the best bet for bigger groups of girls and is 100 percent worth it. You only live once, and ladies night is something to be celebrated to the fullest.
