Following the success of its inaugural edition, we are proud and excited to announce the return of the Cairo 360 Editors' Choice Award for 2015! Seeking to recognise and honour the very best venues that Cairo has to offer, this year's ECA are even bigger and more comprehensive, with brand new categories and awards to be announced.
This year, new additions come in the form of categories covering Arts & Culture, Health & Fitness and Beauty, with an overall total of 200 winners being chosen across all categories through series of thorough meetings and discussions between the Cairo 360 editors and their staff, as they sifted through over 4500 restaurants and cafes, 80 bars and clubs, 5000 shops, 300 arts & culture venues, 150 gyms and fitness centres, 30 hotels and hundreds of other venues.
It's by no means a simple selection process, but a necessary one; the Cairo 360 Editor's Choice Awards are based on stringent criteria that also take into account consistency and longevity, alongside value-for-money and quality of product/service, amongst others.
Since launching in 2010, Cairo 360 has scoured Egypt's capital for the good, the bad and the peculiar – things that Cairo has in plenty of in equal amounts – offering unbiased, accessible reviews of everything from restaurants, cafes and bars, to shops, fitness centres, salons on more. It's this commitment to providing balanced and impartial insights through anonymous visits that has upheld Cairo 360's status as the definitive guide to living in the capital.
Five years on, we're still witnessing the city grow and change and it's this growth that led to the formation of the Cairo 360 Editor's Choice Awards; a fitting platform to acknowledge and celebrate the best of Cairo's dining, nightlife, shopping, arts & culture, fitness and health & beauty scenes and more.
