    things-xmas

    Whether you love it or hate it, there’s no escaping Christmas in Egypt’s capital this year, with Cairo’s bars and clubs all but ready for the big weekend ahead. While many will continue to complain about how busy and/or how expensive the nightlife scene is on, the same people are often found exiting a bar at 4AM wearing a Santa hat and singing Jingle Bells at the top of their voices – it’s inescapable, so why resist? Let the Christmas spirit wash over you like the stinging rush of tequila, burning it’s way down your throat. Here goes…

    (Christmas Eve)

    It certainly is cold outside, guys. As has become customary, Cairo Jazz Club kicks off this year’s Christmas celebrations with their annual charity event, which this year will feature live music courtesy of Funk OFF and the Cadillacs, with all proceeds going to local charity, Helm. #Brrrrr.

    Now, After Eight might not be the hoppest spot in town, but the Downtown Cairo bar has been around longer than most – it has an x-factor that we can;t quite put our finger on and love celebrating any and every occasion. This Christmas Eve, enduring band, Salalem, provide the music.

    (Christmas Day)

    In possibly the biggest event this Christmas, the dudes and dudettes at the Eventers have out together a rather eclectic line-up, featuring king of cool, Ramy DJunkie, one of the country’s hottest DJ acts right now, Disco Misr, and a woman that needs no introduction, Haifa Wehbe.

    Cairo Jazz Club continues its festive fun with the three wise men for the evening, Mohasseb and Aguizi & Fahim, but instead of gold, frankincense and myrrh, they’ll be packing some deep tech, progressive house and, if Mohasseb is feeling frisky, maybe even some trance.

    JINGLE BEATS @ INTERCONTINENTAL CITYSTARS
    (Christmas Day)

    Event organiser, Insomnia, loves nothing more than to ‘go hard’ so to speak, and will be doing so this Christmas at InterContinental Citystars with an open-beer-and-vodka bar and the a line-up of entertainment that includes the likes of the Godfather, Amr Hosny, as well as Lebanon’s Bash’s Beat.

    CHRISTMAS @ THE TEMPLE
    (Christmas Day)

    ‘Christmas at the Temple‘ sounds like you’re going to an early morning service where you can appreciate the true meaning of Christmas, but it’s far from it. A notorious venue for so many reasons, expect this party to be of the x-rated variety, with Greek DJ, Anastasis Basias filling in the role of Santa.

    CHRISTMAS NIGHT @ THE GARDEN
    (Christmas Day)
    12373349_10156284588005487_1766702386213073586_n

    Last seen bringing all the boys (and girls) to the yard at O Bar, Dr. K & Nii are leading the charge this Christmas day at the Garden, with the Korba bar also welcoming Amr Zahrawy for opening duties.

    EAT, DRINK & BE MERRY @ SAIGON RESTAURANT & LOUNGE
    (Christmas Day)
    12391207_1062471260440478_522674698840387382_n
    Eat, drink and be merry – good advice. As another place that takes occasions seriously Fairmont Nile City’s biggest Christmas event sees the Nile-side hotel host a veritable feast of food, drink and music, the latter of which will come courtesy of pork-hat-wearing, smooth as silk crooner, Ahmed Harfoush.

    LIV THE CHRISTMAS @ LIV LOUNGE
    (Christmas Day)
    12313550_10153757350464287_407599777623201839_n
    Nonsensical event name aside, LIV has been winning more and more fans since its April launch and the Heliopolis bar’s first Christmas will welcome no less than four DJs – two of whom are shoving the Christmas spirit aside for a battle – and a saxophonist alongside the lounge’s trademark cocktails and munchies.
