As we prepare to celebrate another year of staying alive (good job guys), the spate of parties that always accompanies New Year’s Eve in Cairo have not disappointed this year. Whether you’re looking to go all-out and wake up on January 1st feeling like a shell of your former self, or take it easy and start the New Year with your dignity in tact, Cairo’s bars, clubs and even organisers are serving up a little bit of everything.
The Tap Maadi are once again taking over a villa in Maadi to see in the New Year, with music coming courtesy of Tap regular, Sewwes, and old school duo, Ramsi & Nakhla, as well Sebbz.
Over at The Tap East, hip-hop is on the menu for New Year’s Eve, with the New Cairo bar set to welcomes resident DJ, Teddy, who’s on opening duties before hip-hop connoisseur, AK, takes to the stage.
Cairo jazz Club’s NYE parties are the stuff of Cairo nightlife legend and this year, ‘The Boogie Monster Ramy DJunkie is the man charged with the music.
If there are two words that best describe Riverside, they’re ‘black’ and ‘bling’ and the Zamalek venue is set to welcome vocalist, Jolene, and DJs Fuzzy and Tamer Hegazy for their special NYE party.
The newest kid on the nightlife block, Wunderkind, has secured possibly one of the biggest bookings of NYE, with acclaimed Hungarian techno and tech-house master, Jay Lumen, headlining and Baher also performing.
Following its eventful Christmas party, Four Seasons Nile Plaza bar, Graffiti, is picking up where it left off with an NYE masquerade party featuring belly-dancer, Oxana, resident DJ, Remon, and more.
While other places drape their NYE parties in themes and gimmicks, Zigzag is keeping its own celebration very much Zigzag-y, with of the Downtown bar’s favourites, Aly B and Ouzo, manning the decks.
Speaking of Ouzo, the Pacha Sharm resident is on double duty of the night and is part of the line-up at HIDE, where Baher, Demarzo and, here’s the big one, Third Son, are also set to strut their stuff at the Radisson Blu Hotel.
The Safir Hotel might not be the hippest venue in town, but it will have the biggest line-up this NYE. Fresh Beat Vol.02 is set to welcome the likes of DJ Feedo, OMR & Adry, Silent & Nice, Santos and more.
The party-loving folk at Boom are hosting a party and an after-party this NYE at Bus Stop and Burgundy in New Cairo, with a huge line-up of DJs, and performances to the always entertaining Abdel Baset Hamouda and belly-dancer, Shahira.
