Proving that Cairo's nightlife is making a massive comeback, El Mojito re-opens in a new location this Wednesday. We find out more and give YOU the chance to win an invitation to the exclusive launch...
If you were around in the heyday of Cairo clubbing, we’ve got some good news for you. Yes, the rumours are true – El Mojito is back! In the mid-2000s the sprawling club and bar was a cornerstone of the nightlife scene; the beating heart of the now-deceased Nile Hilton Hotel. Bringing back the good old days of pure, unadulterated partying, the crew is now back ready to take over their new location at the Conrad Cairo. The open terrace takes up prime real estate, front and centre at the hotel with uninterrupted views of the Nile and the gorgeous Cairo sunset. Living up to its namesake, we’ve been told to expect a refreshing take on chilling out in the city, as a roster of daily events from epic club nights to opera at sunset and every sexy Latin dance in between make sure there’s something for everyone at the rebooted location.
Whether you want to chill out with a shisha in one hand, a beer in the other and your eyes glued to Champions League final over at the lounge, or want to hit the dance floor as Cairo’s best DJs take it in turns to inaugurate the city’s newest hotspot, you’ll certainly find like-minded people populating the space. With plenty of events already lined up, starting with the grand opening this Wednesday, we can’t wait to get a couple of their special Mojitos in us (we’re particularly looking forward to the Coco Mojito which comes with sweet coconut syrup and their Mojito shots, served in the rind of a lemon) and party in sky. Straight after the opening there’ll be a slew of special parties so stay tuned to our calendar to be the first to know. If dancing til dawn isn’t really your style, worry not – the lounge and bar will be open from lunchtime every day and the kitchen will be turning out a mixture of Latin cuisine and Tapas, and Oriental grills and Lebanese mezzes.
Basically, we can’t wait for El Mojito to come back with a bang. To show how much we can’t wait, we’re giving away five invitations to the opening, this Wednesday 14th May at 8pm (each invitation allows access for TWO guests).
All you have to do is answer this simple question: where was the Mojito (drink) invented?
