~ Sinai Casino ~: ~ Four Course Dinner & Gamble ~
Sinai Casino is right next door to the Sonesta Beach Resort Hotel. We decided to go here for the night as the Thomson Rep recommended it & i had never been gambling before either.
It was good value for money, we paid £30 each which included a four course meal, $10 to spend in the Casino & all the free entertainment throughout the night. It was a really good experience the Casino was amazing with all the furnishings it felt like you were in a palace.
We were shown how to play all the games in the VIP room which is used by Tony Blair & George Bush who like to go there.
I enjoyed the live entertainment, the dancers were great & the service from the waiters was great too. I enjoyed the meal too it was really nice.
Dress Code: Dress to impress baby........get out your best gear!
Pacha: Real Clubbing in Sharm
Pacha in Sharm is a bonus to the place. It adds a real clubbing element to Naama bay with guest dj's from around the world and excellent local talent too. It really does compare with Pacha in Ibiza and London. I can honestly say I prefer Pacha Sharm. The interior of the club is amazing with an open air dance floor, special raised vip area, foam pool (for the brave or stupid... all those germs yuck) it really is the piece de la resistance for Sharm. The owner Adly has done a superb job of putting Naama Bay firmly in the forefront of the world clubbing map. I recommend thursdays, a fantastic expereince with beautiful people, ballet dancers and trapeze artists, phat tunes. My friends and i had a super time there Sept 2004. Definatley a must for the discerning clubber, I cant wait to go back end of Jan 2005. Long live Pacha!!!
Dress Code: Pretty much anything goes here, you can be as outrageous as you like. Lots of stylish Italians in attendance, decked out in designer wear. I like to get dressed up to the max here!
Bedouin tent: A taste of the Eygptian life...
Every Bedouin tent that i went into was great fun, i enjoyed lounging in the comphy cushions and watching the world go by as you listen to traditional eygptian music. There was one i went to which had a 'Magic Show' for entertainment and it was great fun to watch. Although i thought the guy was a bit daring at times...rather him than me! But all the same, i really enjoyed these tents as they were so relaxed but you got a feel of Egypt too. I also found the drinks aren't expensive and they offered sheesha pipes for a small charge.
Dress Code: I don't think anything too dressy, its a very relaxed atmosphere.
~ 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!
Dress Code: Smart Casual, no trainers, hoods or caps
Pacha, Bus-stop: Pacha!
You can either enter Pacha through the Sanifar hotel, or through the Bus Stop bar. The club is an open air club & is HUGE! - it has dancers, a swimming pool, foam party the lot - great music, great surroundings. Thursday night is the best night & the most busy. It is expensive to get in (around £20) but a sneaky trick (!!) is to get in the Bus-Stop before they start charging on the door (aim to get in Bus Stop around 10pm) - then when Pacha gets busy at around 12.30, you can walk through !!!
Dress Code: Anything goes! Take your bikini if you want to get in the pool!
Night dive party: Deep Nightclub?
If the nightlife above the sea level is not exciting enough, so try the underwater nightlife...
Ask your fav diving centre about the next night reef party ;-)
Great experience but avoid to touch the bottom... Ah l'ivresse des profondeurs!
Dress Code: No coat and tie required...

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!

MDM Nightclub: MDM Nightclub
Located a few metres along from HRC and KFC, it is billed as the top club in Sharm. It costs 50LE for men (including free drink( to get in but girlies are free (that's sexist !!).
The music is pretty good and it starts to get going after about 11pm
UPDATE (August 2005): The nightclub has changed it's name since my last visit to Sharm but as I didn't go there, I've no idea if anything else has changed
Dress Code: Who cares, you are on holiday !!!
Camel Bar: Camel Bar
The Camel Bar is a typical holiday bar for Brits Abroad. I popped in there to watch some proper English football and grab something to eat. The beer was expensive by Egyptian standards but it was very busy so it's obviously a favourite spot.
Camel Bar: Good night guranteed!
I visited the Camel a few times whilst i was in Sharm. I really enjoyed it here, it was a really relaxed atmoshphere whilst watching the world go by on the roof top bar. It had some great views of Naama bay.
It has two seperate parts, the first being the first floor enterance via the steps which leads you to a spacious bar decorated in flags from around the world, pictures and notes from the people who had visited. Looked quite cool! From this floor, there is steps that lead to the roof top bar, which i went to everytime i was there. It had seating, but it was too busy i couldn't find a seat and was happy perching on the wall overlooking Naama bay strip. You can eat here, although i didn't eat - what i saw did look nice! It does serve alcohol - what i saw i think it was local beer but i may be wrong as i don't drink alcohol myself.
It is a popular bar - a lot of people whom i met mentioned it and so did the locals. It's definately a must see!
Dress Code: I don't think there is any. I went in short shorts and a shirt, no one mentioned anything to me.

Hard Rock Cafe: Home Sick
The Hard Rock is situated at the Southern end of Naama Bay. Quite easily recognised by the guitar built through the main entrance. It opened about 5 years ago and has become popular for its night life.
If you are feeling a little home sick pop in for a drink or a snack or dance the night away.
Dress Code: Smart/Casual
Bus Stop: Prelude to Pacha
This is the night club in the Sanafir Hotel. This bar does not fill up until late and goes on until the very early hours. It makes a great prelude to Pacha.
Every Thursday there is a great and the biggest in Sharm House Party. It starts late - around midnight but the music is really good and the party itself is fun. So for those who love to party late - this is the place I would recommend. You really must see it!!!!
Dress Code: Smart / Casual
little buddah: funky boooddaahh
little buddah is just opening. it's underneath the naama bay hotel next to the mexican restaurant. it's a sushi bar and night club. it was just finished on our last night in naama bay and they were inviting people in to eat, drink and dance for free to get feedback before visiting dignitaries came from cairo. how lucky was that!? it's an amazing wee place you go in and you're instantly on the balcony overlooking a circular subterranean dance floor (the sushi bars down there off to one side.) i think it will be quite expensive when it opens properly but people we spoke to say it's better than Pacha and that's about the same price. (staff at the hotel reckon it'll be about LE120 ($20) to get in with one free drink once you're in there)
Dress Code: i went in with reef sandals, camo shorts and a sweaty t shirt but i reckon they'll get stricter as time goes on. all the egyptians and russians were impeccably dressed and the italians were their usual smart selves.
