I’m sure that I’m not alone in having returned to the city from the Eid holiday still feeling a little tipsy, battling sun-burnt shoulders and with one less pair of designer glasses in my collection. They’ll probably wash up on the coast of Cyprus in a few weeks.
But I’ve always been a happy-go-lucky kind of guy who isn’t at all bitter or hates his job; it’s nice to come back to fully operational bars again and there’s still plenty to keep us busy across Cairo’s bars and clubs until making the inevitable return to a beach this weekend.
PRIVATE SESSIONS FT. MOHASSEB + NTAHAWY @ THE GARDEN
Cairo nightlife’s hottest weekly night right now is back; the first post-Ramadan edition of the Garden‘s Private Sessions will see Mohasseb & NTahawy play-back-to-back having recently worked together – click here for more info.
OF EARTH & FIRE @ ALCHEMY
What better way to celebrate the end of Ramadan and fix the damage caused by a week of alcohol than with a big, fat, juicy steak at Alchemy‘s returning Of Earth & Fire? It’s simple logic, really.
OMAR KHALIL + HISHAM ZAHRAN @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
Omar Khalil might not be a household name in Cairo, but the Egyptian DJ is doing pretty well for himself in Barcelona and has returned to his motherland to drop some dope beats. Also on the line-up is silent but deadly Nacelle resident, Hisham Zahran.
MOHASSEB @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
For reasons that are difficult to explain, Mohasseb and Cairo Jazz Club just click and anyone who has seen the man flex his progressive house sets at CJC will know what I’m talking about. No bull, just great music that you can actually move to.
ANALOG SOUND: AN ELECTRONIC MUSIC NIGHT @ MEDRAR
Maybe I’m maturing, maybe I’m just going through a quarter-life crisis, but I’ve recently began to listen to music that isn’t house – shock horror! This week, little know cultural centre, Medrar, is hosting a special night of electronic music courtesy of Rami Abadir is Mostafa El Sayed‘s ‘improvised collaboration’, alongside the visual creations of Alchem Studio’s Islam Shabana. who some may recognise from various appearances at VENT.
As always, there's much more to keep you busy throughout the week until the weekend - check out the CG events calendar.
