    Besides the usual spectacular fun to be had out and about in
    Cairo, we’re
    excited about the opening of a new nightspot for those seeking a distinguished
    cocktail and a little sophistication: Floor 10 Jazz Bar at the
    Kempinski Nile Hotel held its grand opening last Tuesday, complete with chocolate
    fountains, cocktails, live entertainment and to-die-for appetisers.

    For your weekend dose of fabulous arts and culture, a few exciting exhibits are
    currently being shown, including Doll at the Gezirah Art
    Center, Hiwar at
    Darb 17 18 and the Bidoun Library Exhibition at the Townhouse Gallery.
    Thursday is the last chance to attend the 4th Cairo
    Video Festival
    at the Goethe Institute, which celebrates the contemporary art
    form of the short film from the Netherlands
    to Pakistan.
    Have popcorn and balloons at the ready for a series of shows by the Cairo
    International Circus Festival
    at El Genaina Theatre.

    On Thursday, catch Taxi Band performing at the Cairo Jazz Club or head
    to Sawy Culturewheel for the kick off of the 3rd Sakia Rock Festival where
    local rock bands will share the stage for a lively weekend line-up.  

    On Friday, the legendary Julio
    performs at the pyramids sound and light show stage as part of
    his ‘Starry Night’ tour. Nacelle is back after a summer hiatus with an
    evening of house and dance tunes at Stiletto Lounge, while DJ Mad Lou will
    be holding down the dance floor at Cairo Jazz with his club music play lists.

    Saturday is shaping up to be a classic night of jazz, with Tony
    performing his Oriental fusion jazz music at Cairo Jazz Club, and
    the Jazz Mania Festival at the Citadel featuring Pyramids Jazz Band,
    Alejandro David Falcon Rodriguez, and local favourite Michelle Rounds.

    Happy weekend, Cairo!
