Insider's Guide to Ladies Night Out

Let’s get this party started! Join hundreds of your new best friends Downtown this Thursday, March 7, for Ladies Night Out. Starting at 5pm, Ladies Night Out brings women together for a night of shopping, dining, and giveaways!

Use our Kick-Off event as your ‘Happy Hour’ after work and join inside the 2nd Level of Shops at University Square (SAUS) to start off the night right. Brand new this year, join Julie Jones with iHeartRadio for Gift Card Bingo on the 1st Level of SAUS! Live acoustic music will also be happening to help set the night’s mood. Make sure you pick up your punch card and get one complimentary punch for attending! All attendees of Ladies Night Out will have the opportunity to shop, dine, and win over $1,500 in gift cards and merchandise.

This year’s Ladies Night Out has over 25 participating Downtown businesses. Ranging from boutiques to services to restaurants, this night is full of unbeatable deals. After receiving your punch card at the Kick-Off, attendees will receive an additional punch per every $10 spent at a participating Ladies Night Out business! Punch cards will also be available at each retailer during the event. Check out the full list of participating businesses and their corresponding sales here. Thanks to our 'Shop Around' Shuttle Partner, Mercedes-Benz of Rochester, attendees can now avoid the weather and get around in style! The shuttle will be available from 5:30 - 9:30pm.

When finished shopping and dining, attendees can turn in their punch cards to Rochester Downtown Alliance staff by 8:30pm at the Ladies Night Out kick off location inside Shops at University Square (2nd level), or by 9pm at the After Party inside Castle Community in exchange for prize tickets. Doors open to the After Party at 8pm. There will be a cover charge to get into the after party with tickets bought advance here for $8 or $10 at the door. This ticket gets you access to the concert, a complimentary glass of wine, and appetizers. Just make sure you mention 'LNO' at the bar to redeem your free glass! If you’ve saved up your prize tickets from Ladies Night Out, drop them in the bin of the prize(s) you wish to win! The Grand Prize drawing will be drawn LIVE at the After Party by Mayor Kim Norton. You must be present to win the Grand Prize drawing. Individual prizes will be drawn after the event and winners notified the following week.
