Two New Party Priests Initiated at The Temple
Ahmed Abou Samra and Coco Mokhtar team up with The Temple's Ahmed El Aguizi to shake things up at the nightspot with a slew of new events including their Club Series nights which launches today! We speak to the precocious party prodigies to find out more.
We all know the The Temple; it's one of the best nightlife hotspots in town where all the hottest nightlife brands host their club nights and, on some rare occasions, The Temple will host its own one-off night. Lately we've received some amazing news that something is brewing in The Temple's Sacred Priests' (read: organisers) room where they discuss mainly the fate of their followers and the direction of The Temple itself.
Asking the new Temple Priests what will be different about The Temple after this merger of efforts and talents, Abou Samra stated that, "From now on, The Temple is being re-branded from a venue that holds one-off nights, or a place where you can host your House music nights, to an all-around club with different nights - a Club Series Night, a Disco Night, and a Hip-Hop night called Straight Outta Temple."
Coco explained that "Disco Night launched last Thursday and is catering to the older crowds that want to party in a friendly, no frills environment, listening to easy music that they know and can enjoy with a few drinks." Abo Samra explained, "The Club Series nights, which launches tonight, will be about the gathering of great musicians from around the world - for example, Lee Van Dowski who's headlining the night, and Eddy M from ElRow. Plus, with the great vibe that we hope to create with the help of the beautiful crowds that frequent our events, we plan on putting out a solid night of musical entertainment and all around fun that any club night around the world creates." Coco then added, "Straight Outta Temple will cater to a younger and hipper crowd that are not usually interested in the music played by the other two nights, or people or who enjoy Hip-Hop music but refrain from going to Cairo's cliché Hip-Hop nights - they can come to The Temple and enjoy the music without having to endure the stereotypical Hip-Hop theme. It's a world-class Hip-Hop music night with the fun-filled no frills atmosphere of The Temple."
