hard Rock cafe: Not for me
Restaurant during the day, bar-discotheque after hours, I had a drink there. We were a very animated group, and for some minutes we had fun, dancing... I mean... moving in the repetitive rhythm of the electronic noisy music. After that time, it became boring and tiring, the drink was over, and we moved away, giving space to the kids that kept... moving until... I don't know.
There's a shop where you may buy clothes to promote the brand "Hard Rock Cafe", in the actual marketing concept - instead of receiving anything for that promotion, you will have to pay for the chosen article the double or triple of its regular price. How long will it last, this silly "culture"?
Pacha Sharm el Sheikh: If you want a moment for yourself - go pacha!
Been there tonight, from 0:00 till 1:30h. Payed almost 20 euro's to get in. Maximum amount of visitors was 10 (on a saturday night!!). Two beers and 1,5 hours later I was the only one there and decided that it was enough. Asked my money back. "You have the right to check if is it busy before you pay, sir". Pardon? This is a responsibility of the customer and not of the venue itself? They should have tell me, and if they really care they would give my money back. And by the way - I asked it when I bought the ticket earlier this day. Definitely no go!

Pacha Sharm: Top one
We had a free entrance to Pacha Sharm, and used it. Maybe because we arrived and left early (past 2 AM!) it was almost empty. I saw that the room is adaptable, and though a large space was out of use and wisely covered the sensation of emptiness was dominant.
The music is... the usual electronic hammer, and the space to dance was small, what didn't matter because people kept dancing in corridors or by the counter, to keep drinking without interruptions.
Funny decoration, it really may be hell in the featured parties, where the pool (one of the out of service parts) may play a strong role.
Montys Bar: Montys Bar in Naama Bar
Even though Montys has moved from the little upstairs bar to a much larger place, it remains the same in terms of music, staff, and atmosphere. Now you just have much much more room to move around.
What makes this place so special and why I keep going back is the music and the staff. Montys plays R&B and hip hop all night long. His staff are some of the best in all of Sharm. Sherif the bartender is awesome at making drinks and coming up with shots. Ladies love the muscles on this guy too, so if you ladies want a good drink and something nice to look at, this is the place for you.
Guys, this place plays the best music to dance to with that girl you just met. lol. You are on vacation after all. What happens in Montys, stays in Montys ( unless you post it to facebook and then its your fault ).
Overall, this is easily my favorite bar in Sharm El Sheikh. You have good people, good drinks, and a really good time.

~ Pacha Nightclub ~: ~ Famous Nightclub in Sharm El Sheikh ~
Pacha is one of the famous nightclubs in Sharm El Sheikh. I have never been here but i have heard good stuff about it and lots of people have recommended it to me. It is the first ever Pacha club in Africa and the Middle East. Lots of top well known Dj's have been here including Pete tong, Judge Jules, Smokin Joe and John Kelly. It has a reputation of being one of the top class clubs with impressive Dj's.
The stunning nightclub has cocktail bars, outdoor pools and private VIP rooms that come with terraces overlooking the action. The rooms can be booked for the party, the night or for a few days holiday. Guests can party in private whilst being surrounded by the sites and sounds of the nightclub. Where else can you pre-party, party and continue for the sunrise session?
Pacha also offers rides on board the Pacha boat. After a hard night's clubbing, hop on board and cruise the beautiful waters of the Red Sea, sip cocktails and dance on the decks. The boat is licensed for just 20 people and can be booked as a private charter or by individuals.
You can visit the website below for more photos and information and also contact them if you wish to book anything. Have a great time and be good!

Hilton, Pacha, Little Buddah, Camel Bar: Top Places To Go To In Sharm
I was in Sharm less than a month ago and it was by far the best holiday that i have ever been on in my life!
I went with my family and met some friends out there that i had met the year before as we went around the same time and back to the hotel because we loved it so much.
We stayed at Hilton Sharks Bay Hotel, right next door to Concord, it is a 4 star, all inclusive hotel and it costs approx £60 a night per room (Can bed 3).
Inside the hotel there was 3 pools, 1 large pool, 1 smaller and 1 with a slide.
The hotel had 3 bars, 1 was for the night times, with dance music and entertainment.
There is a smaller bar down the bottom end of the hotel with a large pool table in it and an outside, upstairs, area to smoke shisha's in.
At the pool there is a swimup bar which goes round to a normal bar, the cocktails are included in the price of accomodation and are very refreshing in the 42 degree weather of august!
The nightlife in sharm is quite amazing, the best bet being to go down to Ali Baba at about 10.30pm where beer is £1 a pint! Then heading on down to Pacha, which i would consider to be better than the Pacha in Ibiza!
A not so cheap, but a much nicer bar, would be the camel bar, located a 30 second walk from the Hard Rock Cafe, the downstairs area of the bar has English football, pistachio nuts and friendly barman, the roof opens at 7pm where there is another bar, leather sofa's, umbrellas to block out the sun and a view of across the whole of Naama bay!
Once you have finished down the bars, head on down to Pacha, this costs about £20 to get in and this will also entitle you to one free alcoholic/soft drink. Inside Pacha it is an open roofed dance floor with foam pools and dancers.
Thursday nights are House Nation, Fridays and Saturdays are Ministry of Sound nights, all 3 of these nights are definately worth a visit for anyone that loves their music.
We are going back again in march and possibly August so I'll see what's new and write up another review!

Pacha: THE place to visit!
Pacha in Egypt is great, it has an indoor pool and large dancing space and require DJ's from around the world! They have special nights on, for example 'Ministry of Sound'. It is a definately a must see if your into your dance music. It is located in Naama Bay strip, not far from Panorama. You do have to pay an entry fee of £15 (English), but i think it's well worth it. It doesn't really start of until about 10 pm then into the early hours of the morning. Definately recommended!
Dress Code: I don't think there is one! There is a pool in there so people stripped down to their swimwear!

Total cost 180 EGP which includeds buffet dinner, entertainment whilst eating and than the Sound and Light Show.

Various: hookah/Water Pipe Bar
There are many hookah or water pipe bars within naama bay. We met up with some friends who was in Egypt the same time as us for one night. We went to one of these places. You are sat nearly on the floor which was a very low level seats all covered in pillows and covers. You have a low laying table as well where the hookah or water pipe sits. They ask you if you want drink which we did. They ask what flavour tobacco you want and they set it all up and get it smoking for you. They also give you a plastic end which you put on each time to stop you putting your mouth where others have. We sat there for around 2 - 3 hours because the chairs are nearly like a low bed and you can spread out and chill on them. It was an enjoyable night which we had a good time with.
Dress Code: Any clothing can be worn at these places.
Naama Bay: Night time action
Unless you are staying there, the best way to reach Naama Bay while in Sharm el sheikh is by taxi (see my transportation tip for more info about taxis).
Naama Bay, we were told, comes to life at night, so we never saw it during the day. Naama Bay is full of bars with shisha pipes and cushions, and restaurants and shops, and Pacha nightclub is also there. We only went there on our last night unfortunately so we just experienced the atmosphere and did a little shopping in the Naama Center.
You will get pestered here. Every few feet you walk, you will be asked if you want a taxi. Also beware of anyone trying to offer you "free" gifts. I bought a couple of things from a lovely man at San Peter (see my shopping tip for details) and was then approached by someone who saw my carrier bag and began offering me a free gift because I apparently bought from his brother. Luckily I didn't 'buy' his story and politely declined his "free" gift. I had already been warned that nothing comes for free here.
I've included a photo with this tip but unfortunately it doesn't do it justice as Naama Bay is lit up with very colourful lanterns from all the various bedouin style restaurants and looks quite pretty!
Dress Code: No dress code for walking about but I imagine if you intend to go somewhere like Pacha you will be expected to dress to impress!

Shisha Bar on Cliffs!: Best Shisha and Show place!
You will not miss it. This is the only place that has a stage and sitting area up on the cliffs! We walked up the stairs in between the souvenirs shops, and found lots of sitting area, but we got lucky and climbed another flight of stairs and found spots there! It was closest to the stage where belly dancers perform and she danced right near us, and also the whirling durvish guys. It was a memorable night, because I was lucky to have met peopel from the hotel, smoke shisha, drink mango juice. The servers are amazingly friendly, and wanted to know where we were from, and it was pretty inexpensive for a night of entertainment in the desert nights, which are fabulous. You r seat here will overlook Naama bay, with all its lights, finely paved walkways of granite stone, palm trees, outdoor shisha bars, beautiful people all over and arabic music playing. The seating is with comfy pillows and everything. wonderful
