Things to Do in Cairo This Week
Well, here are in 2014, and the nonsense capital of the world that is Egypt has already given us plenty to ponder. But as always, Cairo’s bars and clubs are on their game, and drinking to forget has never seemed so appealing. Take your pick…
GAWDAT @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
(Monday)There are some pretty big DJ duos in Cairo, but is there any team hotter than Gawdat right now? No, there’s not, and the disc-jockeying brothers are back at CJC this week for a nice, hefty, midweek dose of tech house.
CHRISTMASTIDE @ TAMARAI
The first party of 2014 at Tamarai is set to be a tasty one, with Baky, Beltagy and co keen to firmly send the rumours of the club’s closure back from whence they came. Christmastide sees the always smiley and always game, DJ Lyon Avakian, lead the charge into a new and exciting year for Tamarai.
Speaking of Christmas, there’s more festive cheer at the Fairmont Nile City’s O Bar
, as Winter Wonderland
sees hippest and hoppest DJ in Cairo, Feedo
, take to the DJ booth for a night of unadulterated hip-hop and r&b.
House Obsession returns to Cairo Jazz Club, and brings with it a huge triple-whammy of DJs for what looks like a huge night. Music comes courtesy first of Hady Tarek, before the Awadi Brothers make a welcome return, with the night ending with the Godfather himself, Amr Hosny,
Taking time out from his usual digs at unique underground London club, the Boiler Room, DJ Bradley Zero makes a special guest appearance at Downtown art-space/bar, VENT, for one of the most unique nights of music this week.
