Stuff is happening in Cairo this week; stuff that is totally different from last week’s stuff. If it were not for the usual suspects (CJC, VENT, the Tap, Spring in the City and Riverside) bringing us consistently stellar nights to scratch our collective nightlife itch, we’d be up the creek without a paddle. LOVE YOU GUYS.
URBAN SUNDAY @ THE TAP
The Tap are breathing some much needed life into the dark & barren space that is Maadi nightlife. Get slizzered and DANCE tonight at funky Urban Sunday featuring Cairo fave, Ramy DJunkie. Drink recommendation: Amaretto Sour – it tastes freakishly like candy.
HAVANA JAZZ CLUB FT. LOS COMPADRES @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
Get your illegally imported cigars and red-hot salsa moves ready (if you don’t have red-hot salsa moves, get alcohol), because Ashraf Habashy & Los Compadres will be transporting you to a festive Cuban-themed world that is as far away from C-town as Cuba is to banning rum.
JAZZING BY THE RIVER FT. AHMED HARFOUSH @ RIVERSIDE
If you listen very closely to Ahmed Harfoush’s inspired crooning, you can hear the sounds of women leaving their husbands. A regular on our nightlife circuit, he will be making an appearance at Zamalek’s Riverside. Important note: Riverside’s salmon fettuccine is redonkulous.
RICHARD R. + NOURRE FAHMY + M FAYEK & SEBZZ @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
Forget four DJs in a row at Cairo Jazz Club’s Monday Madness, why is there a robot? Will the robot be participating? Is the robot capable of love? Cairo Gossip asks the important questions. In other news, Richard R., Nourre Fahmy, M Fayek & Sebzz will be behind the decks for a pretty sick at CJC.
DJ SHAWERMA @ VENT
VENT have fallen on some hard times and are no longer able to afford human DJs. Watch a sandwich take to the decks and debut his unique style of hip-hop and electro – but please don’t eat his friends. Just kidding, Shawerma is a real person.
SPRING IN THE CITY SEASON CLOSING @ FAIRMONT NILE CITY
(Wednesday)Sad times, ladies and gentlemen – Spring in the City is ending, ahead of Summer in the City kicking off. We are too sad to write any more. Goodbye, cruel world. Don’t miss Shiba San & the Gawdat brothers though, for reals.
