Ramadan tents are one of Egypt’s distinct ways to celebrate the holy month. The tents, decorated with lights and designed for a cosy Iftar and Suhoor with family and friends, have spread across the Middle East, becoming more and more popular. However, the origin place, Cairo, remains home to the best Ramadan tents out there!

So, Cairenes, you’re lucky! Here are five of the best Ramadan tents around.

Layalina Ramadan Tent

At Zed Park in Sheikh Zayed, Layalina Tent is one of the hottest this year! It’s mainly a Suhoor tent and operates daily from 9:00 pm to 2:00 am. For Iftar, it only opens on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, from 5:00 pm to 8:30 pm. The team behind it cares a great deal about entertainment, so you’ll find an event almost every day; the coming events include performances by Egyptian singers Pousi and Mahmoud El Leithy. 

Al Rawi Ramadan Tent

Al-Rawi is located at the outdoor terrace of the National Museum for Egyptian Civilization, a charming position overlooking a grand green landscape. Al-Rawi operates both Iftar and Suhoor with family-themed menus so you can share the best Ramadan nights and meals with your loved ones!

Wust El Balad Tent

Inside The Nile Ritz-Carlton Hotel, this tent is located in the heart of Cairo. The view is definitely one of the features that make this tent great! Located right between the beauties of Downtown and the Egyptian Museum, it’s primarily a Suhoor tent and operates daily from 9:00 pm to 2:00 am, and this tent doesn’t lack in events either!

The Palace Ramadan Tent

In the heart of Heliopolis, the Palace tent performs its magic in the Atrium, Holiday Inn, Citystars. The palace, which is newly opened this Ramadan, is truly special for balancing superstar entertainment and events while focusing on the true spirit of Ramadan.

Ramadan Nights Tent

At Blue Nile Boat, Maadi Corniche, the Ramadan Nights Tent is a lovely one. Overlooking the tranquil Nile while having a lavish Suhoor and watching some great performances, what would be better? Tanoura dancing and many other folk performances await you!
