Cairo’s bars and clubs are full steam ahead as we move into February, with plenty lined up for a week of hopped-up, late-night, liver-destroying buffoonery. And who of us would dare deny these noble venues the chance to rinse through your parents’ money? I wouldn’t have it any other way.
WHEEL A BEER @ JOHNNY’S ZAMALEK
The generous and giving folk at Heineken Egypt continue their Wheel a Beer tour at Cairo’s bars and clubs, giving boozers a chance to win special prizes like Heineken-branded coasters, Heineken-branded glasses, Heineken-branded bags and lots more Heineken-branded stuff.
AGUIZI & FAHIM @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
Student DJ alumni, Aguizi and Fahim, have emerged as the two most platonically functional DJing duos in Cairo and will paint the canvas that is Cairo Jazz Club with more of their unique indie house and nu-disco sets.
MASCARA @ VENT
VENT brings you more sounds from the deepest, darkest corners of Egypt, as Alexandrian post-rock metal band Mascara – aka Massive Scar Era – show why they’ve been going strong for nine years.
HIP-HOP + R&B WITH DJ FEEDO @ O BAR
Fairmont Nile City’s O Bar goes gangsta, with DJ Feedo heading another night of durrrty, durrty beats with the help of sidekick, DJ Hook and lots of crunk juice – what ever that is.
EAT AT CHEF’S MARKET
We’ve covered Chef’s Market extensively over the last few months for the very simple reason that it’s one of the most exciting new restaurants to appear in Cairo. After a special opening event that saw a host of VIPs sample the eatery’s unique Mediterranean dishes in its location at Citystars’ Mosaique Dining Zone, Chef’s Market will open its doors to the public on Tuesday.
There are plenty more things to do in Cairo between now and the weekend; check out the uber useful Cairo Gossip events calendar for more.
