  • Things to Do in Cairo This Weekend

    things4

    A big weekend awaits across Egypt’s capital, but it’s not only Cairo’s bars and clubs that vying for your time. Nightlife has thrown up a few interesting events as always, but the weekend belongs to foodies, with the debut of another food festival – but one with a twist – and one of the most popular TV chefs in the Middle East weaves his magic. So, without further ado…

    AN AFFAIR WITH THE DIAMONDS OF THE KITCHEN @ FAIRMONT NILE CITY
    (Thursday)

    We begin at Fairmont Nile City and an event that has had Cairo foodies licking their lips – Andrew Mitchell‘s temporary takeover of the hotel’s kitchens for a specially-crafted, truffle-based menu that the TV chef will be serving for one night and one night only.

    CACHÉ W/ IVAN SMAGGHE @ ZIGZAG
    (Thursday)

    Despite only having debuted two or so weeks ago, CACHÉ is already the talk of the town. The brainchild of Egyptian DJs, Aly B and Klady, will this weekend welcome French minimal electro producer, Ivan Smagghe, at Downtown’s Zigzag.

    BACK 2 BASICS: THE REUNION YEAR 2 @ UPTOWN CAIRO

    Back 2 Basics‘ homage to Egypt’s eclectic pool of DJing talent, the Reunion, is back and boasts possibly the best all-local line-up B2B has ever assembled. Set to take place at Uptown Cairo, this is one of the most stacked line-ups of the year and could possibly one of the last day parties of its kind in 2015.

    THE TAP ANNIVERSARY
    (Friday)

    It seemed like it was just yesterday that Maadi residents were rubbing their hands in anticipation of what promised to be the pub that Cairo has been yearning. One year and several hundred creatively weird event flyers later, and here we are raising a glass to what has become one of the most popular bars in the city, as the Tap co-owner, Tamer Emad, local rock band, Screwdriver, and DJ Shaggy provide the entertainment at the anniversary celebrations.__________

    SATURDAY JAZZ BRUNCH PARTY @ SAIGON RESTAURANT & LOUNGE
    (Saturday)

    Saturdays in Cairo are pretty flat at the best of times when it comes to events, so what better way to wind down the weekend and medicate your inevitable hangover with a spot of brunch at Fairmont Nile City’s Saigon Restaurant & Lounge, as Cairo crooner, Ahmed Harfoush, croons his way through a host of jazz classics.
