With resident, Lyon Avakian, in the DJ booth, the boys and girls at Tamarai have promised a whirlwind trip back to a time when androgyny ruled and a black man could listen to Michael Jackson on his Walkman with pride.
So, expect some Jacko, maybe even a little bit of Madonna and, if we’re lucky, some George Michael.
January has thus far been a prolific month for Tamarai, who – up until as recently as mid-December – were subject to rumours that suggested the rooftop club was to close after five years of keeping Cairenes jolly. But with plans already in motion to renovate the terrace, it looks like business as usual for one of Egypt’s most iconic nightlife venues.
