Ramadan is around the corner, and well all what is considered cool is about to change! New venues will pop up! and venues we go to as our watering hole will be serving shisha, and our dress code will go micro skirts to mini skirts! but dont worry the paparazzi will be all over the ramadan tents to take your pictures. So to get spotted and be cool you have to be hanging in one of the following places.
Le Capitol: Bab El Kahera is actually indeed cool, not because the aim to be or because anything but because as they promise, they are going to focus on what you use to make Ramadan venues actually fun, and that is by guaranteeing a good crowd of people who know each-other, where its really just a gathering of like minded people, who can have fun with out the need to act all pretenious.
Le Capitol: Bab El Kahera, boasts one of the only 360 views in town as it is on the rooftop of the Novotel hotel.
Who is behind it you might ask ? Well Rawy Rizk, Nagaty, Wahba Brothers, they bring in years of experiance whether from quatro own prodigy Arjeela, or individual previous experience such Faraya < last year >, amici, and the travel industry.
