It’s finally time! Our friends and lovers at the definitive guide to living in the capital, Cairo 360, have today announced the winners for this year’s Cairo 360 Editors’ Choice Awards, with a bunch of brand new awards and categories.
Last year, the trailblazing online lifestyle magazine paid homage to the best 100 restaurants, hotels, bars and shops, but this year, awards have been given to a total of 200 venues – including galleries, gyms, salons, and more.
The Cairo 360 Editor’s Choice awards is the first of its kind in Cairo and aims to salute the best of the best of the best of the best in this weird and wonderful – but mostly weird – city we call home. The ECA has quickly become a coveted seal of approval from the Cairo 360 editors and staff, who have been exploring the nooks and crannies of the city since 2010. In that time, they’ve racked up thousands of reviews, so it’s safe to say that they know what they’re talking about.
What you don’t see in this photo is the Cairo 360 team yelling at us. “Awards are not toys,” apparently.
In fact, the Cairo Gossip team was privy to the process of choosing the winners – a process that produced blood, sweat, tears and several heated discussions, as our office-amigos sifted through thousands of restaurants & cafes, bars & clubs (we helped with that one), gyms and fitness centres (we sat out of this one), shops, arts & culture venues, hotels and more. So, yeah – this was one hell of an undertaking.
But it’s one that Cairo 360 are sincerely proud of; one that aims to champion the diversity of a growing and forever evolving Cairo. So, cheers to the winners and cheers to Cairo 360!
