It’s almost become ingrained in folklore that Sheikh Zayed and 6th of October City has little-to-no nightlife. That might have been true at some moment in recent history, but these days Zayedians and Octoberites no longer need to trek into the centre of town or, even worse Maadi, to get their nightlife fix, thanks partly to Le Pacha West at Arkan Mall – home to what brought us here today, Johnny’s.
Having enjoyed popularity in Zamalek, Johnny’s is set to become a go-to for drinking, dancing and, who knows, maybe even a bit of romancing, with its relaunch on Thursday 12th of November – a relaunch that also signals the beginning of a series of special events – but more on that later.
The event is set to welcome Cairo’s number one belly-dancer right now, Amie Sultan – who Cairo Gossip sat down with for a genuinely fascinating interview this year – as well as DJ Roro and a few surprises. Sultan’s is the first of several heavyweight names rumoured to be waiting in the wings to take the Johnny’s spotlight, with the likes of Amr ‘the Godfather’ Hosny, sultry songstress, Michelle Rounds, and bubbly Brit, Ellie of London, penciled into make appearances this month.
Here’s to new beginnings. For more information, stay tuned to the Le Pacha 1901 West Facebook page.
