I don’t envy the poor souls who can’t travel this weekend for one reason or another. I’ve been counting down the days to when I can sit half naked on a beach with beer in hand and sizzle in the sun. But the unfortunate aren;t that unfortunate; Cairo’s bars and clubs are stepping it up for the long Easter weekend. Here’s
BREAKING INTO SPRING FT. AMR HOSNY @ TIPSY BAR & LOUNGE
(Thursday)The man, the myth, the legend and my adoptive big brother, Amr Hosny, debuts at recently opened Maadi’s Tipsy – the first night of a bumper four days of events at the recently opened bar and lounge.
DISCO NIGHT @ VENT
(Thursday)I though hell would freeze over before I’d hear ‘disco music’ at VENT, but low and behold, the Downtown bar has yielded to the unstoppable force – there’s bound to some sort of twist, though.
AGUIZI & FAHIM @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB(Friday)
These hombres need no introduction – Aguizi and Fahim are two of the hottest DJs in Cairo. There is something unsettling about how young they are, though; makes me wonder what happened to my own musical dreams.
ORGASM @ 100COPIES MUSIC SPACE
I’m not going to lie – I don’t know who or what this is. But anything called Orgasm is worth checking out, tight? This looks scary in the most intriguing of ways.
JOWAN SAFADI @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
I’ve been hearing very good things about this Jowan Safadi fella – mostly that he’s slightly crazy, unpredictable and can grow a decent beard. Good combo.
BUNNIES & BOWTIES @ AMICI ZAMALEK
Open bar, bunnies, open bar, bow-ties, open bar, DJ Fabric, open bar at Amici Zamalek. Open bar.
AUFENSIVE FT. TAMER AUF @ TIPSY BAR & LOUNGE
Yes, yes oh good god, yes! Tamer Auf has emerged from his studio and is strutting his stuff at Tipsy Bar & Lounge. It’s almost enough to keep me in Cairo. But not quite. I need sand between my toes.
MANIC MONDAY: BAHER EID & ALY B @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
This one’s really, very simple. Two of the best DJs in Cairo playing back-to-back.
