Sick of hearing the same music at every one of Cairo’s bars and clubs? Tired of paying hard-earned cash for the pleasure of awkwardly squeezing through a passive cattle of posers to reach the bar, only to be ignored by a staff who seem to have struck up a very deep friendship with the girl with the big ass titties? Too bad. This is Cairo. Things don’t change. We are all superfluous specks of skin and bones in a universe that will, hopefully, devour this dying planet called Earth into a silent, still abyss sooner rather than later. Here’s some stuff to do this weekend.
AGUIZI & FAHIM @ SYREN BAR
This weekend, Syren Bar‘s Euphoric Thursday welcomes a duo that would probably be too young to be allowed in as guests, Aguizi and Fahim. Bless their little cotton socks.
NOHA TAHA @ SAIGON RESTAURANT & LOUNGE
(Thursday & Friday)
There aren’t many performers in Cairo that fit the criteria of Fairmont Nile City’s Saigon Restaurant & Lounge, but Noha Taha ticks all the boxes – glamour, style and a voice that that will make you want to cuddle up with her.
WE FUNK ON FRIDAYS FT. DJ MOBBZ & DJ BROOKLYN @ THE GARDEN
They’ve funked on Wednesdays, they’ve funked on Thursdays and this weekend the Garden are funking the funking hell out of Friday with Cairo’s DJ Mobbz and, from the rough streets of Dubai, DJ Brooklyn.
KAREEM AUF & SAFI @ CAIRO JAZZ CLUB
Cairo Jazz Club celebrated their thirteenth anniversary this week. There was an open bar. That has nothing to do with Kareem Auf and Safi, who will be in charge of the music this Friday. I’m just making smalltalk.
‘YOU CANNOT SWIM AT THE RIVER TWICE’ @ BALCON LOUNGE
Contrary to popular belief, there’s more to Cairo Gossip than bars, clubs and the written equivalent of idle chit-chat. Exhibit A is a recommendation to visit some art thing at some place in Heliopolis. Go look at it and stuff.
