    Dancing: RITHMO

    by sarrahh Written Apr 12, 2005

    RITHMO

    Rithmo, which has only been open a couple of weeks, looks like it has been designed to cater for the kind of people who go out hoping that their photos will appear in next month’s society magazines. However, the bar’s upscale pretensions don’t come as a shock since it is located within a five-star hotel complex.

    But the lack of customers suggests that the word about the new place hasn’t yet circulated. In Cairo bars fall in and out of favour as predictably and as frequently as Amr Diab’s ability to release a hit single every six-months.

    So far, the clientele at Rithmo can be described as rich older men; the ones who chomp cigars and order the most expensive whiskies while they discuss what the new money laundering laws will mean to their livelihoods.

    The women seem to be younger than the men, and definitely dressed to impress and out to be seen. There are some single men and some single women but on the whole the place seems to be filled with couples. In the case of some of the wealthier looking older men ‘couple’ can be defined as one man and two younger peroxide women on each arm.

    The bar is placed in the middle of Rithmo. One side of the bar is decorated in the neo-classical Arab style that has become popular recently. While the other side has only high-backed leather couches. There are also chairs and tables at the back.

    And just to make the older business-type men feel at home there is a whisky cabinet in the center of the bar and short-skirted waitresses keep the big men supplied with cigars so that they don’t have to get up very often.

    Dancing: The Place restaurant

    The Place restaurant
    3 more images

    The Place is located in Zamalek, near Sheraton El Gezirah, and has a magnificent view of the Nile.
    The restaurant, similar to a boat anchored on the Nile shore, is on three levels and live music is played on the top terrace.
    We went there twice and different bands were singing both Egyptian and international music: the first night was a Latino music night and the second one was a French music night.
    Anyway the bands were both good and we had a lot of fun and danced a lot.
    For an enjoyable and dancing night out it is a good choice.

    Dancing: CAIRO JAZZ CLUB

    by sarrahh Written Apr 12, 2005

    cairo jazz club
    1 more image

    Are you into jazz? How about oriental music? Well if you feel like you want to dance the night away and don't mind sharing the fun with tons of special people, then you have come to the right place! Cairo Jazz Club sets the mood of a perky jazz night with its great music, fine food, amazing interior setting, and classy people.

    As you enter the club, you have the choice of sitting at the bar, dinning table, or bar table. But you will find that the entire space is magically mellowed down with dim lighting effects, no matter where you sit. If you are curious and look above your head to find the source of light, you will find what looks like air-condition ducts covered with semi-transparent stones of different colors and sizes. Each stone adds to the beauty of the space and enhances the lighting.
    Other than that, the setting is a wonderful blend of tranquil colors and styles, except for two bright dominant colors; red and blue. I personally think that the design of the entire area was meant to go well with the music that plays here every night.
    Now for the entertainment. The music played here is the soothing melodies of jazz with a touch of an awkward Arabian beat and rhythms that create a new style of music; it’s an addition like the blue and red colors in the setting. To add to the jazzy look, metal stick figures that appear to be playing jazz instruments, like a trumpet, or saxophone, are placed everywhere. The immobile musicians are depicted in a very primitive, yet innovative style.

    Latex: Not as sleazy as it sounds

    by Tijavi Updated Jun 28, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Crowd still trying to push their way in at 3 am!

    Latex is Nile Hilton's official bar. It has a strict entrance policy, where single men are not allowed entry unless they're hotel guests. The interiors - done in the classic red, white, black motif - have a very modern touch to them, which matches the music and the crowd - mostly trendy yuppies and fashionable Cairenes. If you're not dancing, it's a great place to people watch as you enjoy your favorite cocktail.

    Thursdays and Fridays are the busiest days so you may want to come early on these days to beat the long queue. Keep in mind though that the scene does not get lively before 12 midnight. While I was there on a Thursday, there was a lot of commotion at the entrance as people wanting to get in were pushing themselves against the phalanx of bouncers - and this was at 3 am, while I was already going back to my room!

    Dress Code: Dress up a little bit if you don't want to look out of place.

    Dancing: Coco Jungle

    by miso80 Written Apr 13, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In a jungle setting, you are invited to drink and dance the night away. All dishes and drinks have jungle names..and you will have trees and big leaves hanging around you in this night club, while the music fills up the place.

    The DJs started playing the music at 11.00 pm, and dinner was served at 11.30 pm
    The music wasnt exactly my style..but being there and going wild in this jungle made it a fun night out :o)

    Admission Charge EGP 40 minimum charge (excluding drinks)
    Average Cost EGP 80

    ...and oh yes, its on a boat!

    Dress Code: oh dress up! You're going out to dance :))

    Cairo is a city that never sleeps

    by Mongy Updated Mar 16, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cairo is very alive city in the evening.
    Lots of cafes, pubs and bars. Sometimes you need to know where to go, if you are looking for a drinking spot, as not everywhere serves alcoholic drinks.

    Dress Code: Mostly the dress code is "soiree", evening dress.

    After eight: Where to go out in Cairo? Dancing...

    by Mongy Written Mar 17, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Very nice night spot. Many cultures inside as a lot of Expats go there.

    The place is a bit full of smoke. Get alive in the evening. But very nice music.
    The stage is actually in the center of the main room, with a wooden floor and four pillars carving out the band’s turf. The same structure will most likely serve as the dance floor on DJ nights.
    There is a minimum charge of 40 EGP (almost 6 USD) in some days, especially when there is a live band.

    Dress Code: No special dress code
