  • Things to Do in Cairo This Christmas

    elfbeer

    There are few occasions that bring out the best  – and quite often worst – of Cairo’s bars and clubs than Christmas. Well, possibly New Year’s Eve, actually. Good or bad, like a traditional family Christmas dinner, the only thing to do is to eat, drink, grit your teeth and pretend that you like the people around you.

    BOOGIE WOOGIE XMAS @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
    (Christmas Eve)The jolly folk at Cairo Jazz Club kick-off their three-day Christmas shenanigans with a night that will see DJ Ramy play the part of Santa Claus, as he unloads his sack on baiting crowds.

    CHRISTMAS MASQUERADE @ DUSIT THANI LAKEVIEW CAIRO
    (Christmas Eve)

    An Egyptian event organiser/record company/talent-sucking-vampire books two British acts at a Thai hotel chain. I think this what they meant by ‘New Egypt’.
    __________

    MERRY CHRISTMESS @ VENT
    (Christmas Eve)

    In typical, anti-mainstream fashion, the too-cool-for-school, futuristic hipsters at VENT are taking the minimalist approach to Christmas. Spoilsports. I can appreciate some good wordplay, though.

    WINTER WONDERLAND: A MASQUERADE @ O BAR
    (Christmas Eve)

    Fairmont Nile City‘s O Bar welcomes back a man who has become a regular, Dr K,  for masquerade party, Winter Wonderland. Masks? Alcohol? Hotel rooms? Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

    DJ MANO & KIDMIMS; @ THE TAP
    (Christmas Eve)

    Maadi bar, the Tap, rings in its holiday line-up with kidmims; (aka Mai El Sabi of Student DJ fame) and Mano. Then….(scroll down)

    CHRISTMAS FUNK BY NACELLE @ THE TAP
    (Christmas Day)

    ….they team up with Nacelle, to bring you Tito for a funky Christmas.
    __________

    GOLD CHRISTMAS PARTY @ LE PACHA 1901
    (Christmas Day)

    DJ Ramy must love Christmas, because the Boogie Monster is leading the charge at GOLD alongside Richard R at Le Pacha 1901′s Ontop – named as such, because it’s on the top floor. Worst venue name ever. Apart from neighbouring venue, Venue.
    __________

    A MERRY ROCKIN’ XMAS @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
    (Christmas Day)

    More Christmas fun at CJC, this time with the Cadillacs providing the music at the bar’s annual charity fundraiser. It’s nice to know that the some of the 200LE I’m going to be spending on a double whiskey is going to a good cause. Makes it burn less.
    __________

    CHRISTMAS BASH @ THE TEMPLE
    (Christmas Day)

    Ironically, “YOU WON’T WANT TO MISS THIS” makes me want to miss Christmas Bash at the Temple. Check out the use of “UNFORGETTABLE” for more irony.
    __________

    THE SEASON TO BE NAUGHTY @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
    (Boxing Day)

    Possibly the best pick out of the list, two of the best DJing entities in Cairo, Mohasseb and the Gawdat bros, crown CJC‘s wallet-draining Christmas festivities.
