Ramadan is night and events at Cairo’s bars and clubs are slim. But a brave, noble few are going out with a bang – oh, and there’s that football thing in Brazil.
AN ALCHEMICAL UTOPIA @ ALCHEMY
Al Chemist and his band of jolly alchemists bid farewell with suitably spectacular soiree which will see the award-winning Dokki bar pulling out all the stops. Don’t wear anything white – there’s going to be a chocolate fountain.
El FUSION: SAMA3NA MAZIKTAK FT. FAREEQ EL ATRASH & ABO WEL SHABAB @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
Lebanese alternative hip-hoppers, FareeQ El Atrash, and popular local band, Abo Wel Shabab, close another excellent edition of Cairo Jazz Club’s El Fusion series.
BOOGIE (& TAMTAM) FT. DJ RAMY @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
While the thought of Tamtam overdosing a la Mia Wallace in Pulp Fiction, this is the most hilarious desecration of classic childhood memories I have ever seen. It’s Ramy, it’s CJC, it’s Boogie (and Tamtam) night.
WORLD CUP @ ‘LIVE’ SPORTS BAR, LE MERIDIEN CAIRO AIRPORT
The city’s newest luxury hotel, Le Meridien Cairo Airport, is one of the more laid back spots to catch all the World Cup action – I think it’s that new hotel smell.
WORLD CUP @ CAPOEIRA WORLD CUP LOUNGE, INTERCONTINENTAL SEMIRAMIS
Few places have jumped headfirst into the World Cup spirit like InterContiental Semiramis‘ Capoeira Lounge. Set up on the hotel’s rooftop pool area, the best way to describe it is a carnival of football – check it out.
