Maybe it’s the dip in temperature of Egypt’s usually agreeable weather, but there isn’t much of note going on across Cairo’s bars and clubs this week. But from Movember-themed parties to Michelin Star quality dinners, there are a select few things that will make even the most ardent of in-blanket hibernators perk up and listen.
RA2ASS SHANABAK @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
Cairo Jazz Club‘s annual salute to Movember, Ra2ass Shanabak, returns with night of moustaches and music, the latter of which comes courtesy of Shady Ezz and Pacha Sharm resident, Ouzo.
ONE YEAR OF VENT @ VENT
It seems like only yesterday that Cairo’s prissier clubbers were mad dissing VENT. One year on, the Downtown bar/art-space has proven that a little can go a long way and will celebrate with an invite-only birthday bash.
DANCESTOCK 2014: TAPESH + ALY GOEDE @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
The last night of this year’s Dancestock at Cairo Jazz Club welcomes German DJ, Tapesh, who’ll be taking his place behin dthe decks after Aly Goede fingers nobs and buttons like only he can.
EAT DINNER @ OAK GRILL, CONRAD CAIRO HOTEL
My knowledge of chefs is limited to potty-mouthed Gordon Ramsay and the dude that always serves me my chicken at KFC in Midan Lebnan, but a Michelin Star chef in Cairo isn’t something to scoff at. Frenchman, Thierry Verrat, is cooking a special menu at Conrad Cairo‘s Oak Grill – time to unleash your most pretentious inner foodie.
