Another weekend of drinking and dancing awaits the city’s nightlife devotees, as Cairo’s bars and clubs hosts a range of mildly-interesting-to-cool events, with a couple of Brits, a couple of Egyptians and an iPod in the mix.
MARGARITA FIESTA @ ALCHEMY
Dokki’s home of all things weird, delicious and alcoholic, Alchemy, is once again bringing you a night choc-full of everyone’s favourite tequila cocktail and, let’s be honest, it’s probably the only one you know. What? No, lime and salt does not make tequila a cocktail.
BEN UFO @ VENT
One of the most exciting acts to come to Egypt in a long time, this UK-born DJ, Ben UFO, will be spinning up whatever he damn well wants, and you can be sure that whatever it is will be pretty damn good. With VENT resident 1127 also making an appearance, this is a can’t-miss event for all you trendy fools out there.
WE FUNK ON THURSDAYS @ THE GARDEN
If it were up to us, we would be funking every damn day of the week. We’d be funking everywhere, on the walls, on the ceiling, you might even get some funk in your hair. But alas, Thursday at the Garden is our only true funk outlet of the week, so Mobbz is going to make it count.
LETTERS FROM MY IPOD WITH SEIF @ VENT
Seif Abdel Salaam is so damn cool that his iPod has its own following, and that iPod will be performing this Friday at VENT. iPod will be laying down the tunes all night long, for what is sure to be an incredible night. (Note: iPod is available for bookings for private events – contact iPod’s management at email@example.com for more info.)
HOUSE SESSIONS BY NACELLE @ THE TEMPLE
Nacelle House Sessions; what really needs to be said about one of the marquee nights of the week on Cairo’s party calendar. Nacellians can look forward to a weekend with UK house and techno overlord, Matt Tolfrey, as well as Cairo’s own Hisham Zahran.
