There’s a spring in my step today. It could because Cairo Gossip has a handsome new makeover, or it could just be that the weekend is so close I can smell it. With the long Eid holiday last week, returning to the day-to-day things has been tough. But worry not – there’s plenty to get excited about this weekend around Cairo’s bars & clubs.
CAROUSAL @ TAMARAI
Tamarai & Electrum Records join forces once more to bring you a rather mouthwatering line-up, featuring club scene stalwarts, Fahmy & Samba, as well as Student DJ finalists, Gawdat.
MOLTEN AMBER: WHISKEY NIGHT @ ALCHEMY
Alchemy celebrates liquid gold with an ode to whiskey – I’ll drink to that.
CAN YOU DANCE? @ ZAMALEK
I don’t really know what’s going on here, but it looks pretty manic; dance-offs, live music and god knows what else.
FIRE UP THE GRILL @ AMICI HELIOPOLIS
Beer, burgers and hotdogs. I don’t need to say anything here – it sells itself.
NACELLE: HOUSE SESSIONS @ THE TEMPLE
I honestly feel much more at ease when House Sessions is in season, and Nacelle’s flagship party is back this weekend with Fulltone, Tito and Minus T. Outstanding.
ASHARA GHARBY @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
If you’ve never seen these guys live, then you haven’t really experienced what live local music is all about. These Alexandrians know how to play.
Have fun and keep an eye on the Cairo Gossip events calendar for more…
