Cairo Weekend Guide: 29th July Weekend

    Dear Cairo,
    when will this steamy weather let up? We’ve nearly exhausted ourselves researching pools,
    indoor air-conditioned fun and delicious food to eat. We’ve decided that this
    weekend is all about kicking back and relaxing in the Capital; so here we go.

    This Thursday night, Stiletto Lounge in Giza is hosting a party with Club Legends, a
    lineup of UK DJs Robert Pereno and Danny Rampling and local DJ Carlos From Nile FM. If you
    can’t get enough of the nightclub, they also have a rather creatively named Watermelon Party on Friday.

    For a little cultural enlightment, check out Al Geneina Theatre this Thursday, where El
    Fateh Hussein
    will a live music show. For something a
    little livelier this Thursday, check out +IVE
    at the Cairo Jazz club, or local band Eskenderella performing at El Sawy Culturewheel. DJ Tronik spins the Jazz Club on Friday
    with a mix of house, hip hop and R&B.

    We’ve come across an exciting new discovery
    this week with Osmanly restaurant at
    the newly opened Kempinski Hotel– Turkish cuisine to swoon over, to put it
    lightly. For an early evening outing, Breeze
    in Katameya offers some rare serenity: if you’re lucky enough to be a member of
    the resort, enjoy a dip in the pool, or join the rest of us gazing at its
    sparkling waters from the shore while you enjoy a coffee or a treat. Speaking of
    which, we’ve tracked down Treats, a
    cosy new arrival in Zamalek that serves delicious waffles. Cairo
    360 continues to scout out Cairo
    pools for your relaxation benefit, so try the family-oriented Nile Country Club, but be warned: the place is packed on weekends. 

    Feeling like basking in a spot of old-world
    British culture? Stop by Harry’s Pub for
    some camaraderie and their dainty fish and chips. The heat has us scouting out
    some suitable open air venues, such as Karvin
    Hotel Rooftop Bar
    and the Lotus Inn
    where you can relax and watch Cairo’s
    skyline light up at night.
