Get all the latest info on what's happening during Eid around Cairo, Sahel, Gouna and Sharm El Sheikh.
Ramadan is almost over, so say farewell to the long month of spirituality, abstaining and self control. We all know that Eid is about the debauchery, letting loose and (hopefully) hopping on that bar and giving Britney Spears a run for her money. Since we here at CairoScene are huge patrons of all things debauch, we've compiled a list of all the happenings and crazy shenanigans that are sure to abound!
This Eid, ByGanz are turning Sahel topsy-turvy, in true extravagance and flair, with their line up of fabulous "Club M" events. Sahel-goers are in for a decadent treat, orchestrated by purveyor of all things fabulous in Cairo, all done by the beach in what is bound to be the North Coast's "it-destination."
Kicking off on the 8th of August, Club M brings you "Monhara Fel Sahel" feat exotic dancer Sama El Masri. Cairenes-turned-amphibian-party-goers can get in touch with their belly dancing side and indulge in a night of pure decadence with this intense event!
Following hot in Monhara's heels, Cairenes can go back to being pretentious elitists with "TeaDance Soiree" on the 9th. The famous Cairo-based party is migrating to the beach, ensuring a night of pure shenanigans and debauchery!
Finally, Club M concludes its stunning line up of events with "Disco Bel 3araby" feat veteran Egyptian singer, Hisham Abbas. It's obvious ByGanz have big plans for Cairenes this Eid, and we honestly can't even begin to imagine the insane amounts of wild shenanigans Cairo's high society are going to get in!
