8 Hottest 2018 Sahel Spots

Ok girls and boys; it's Sahel season. If you're one of the lucky few who can actually afford filling up the gas tank all the way to Sahel for a caj weekend, made even fewer now after the government's 3edya earlier this week, OR one of the unlucky majority for whom reading this article is their form of emotional-cutting, we've got your back here. Listed below are the hottest spots (re)opening their doors across Sahel this summer. From swanky restaurants, and charming beach clubs all the way to the noisiest nightclubs; here's your guide to doing Sahel right:


Cheers Sahel

Located in Bianchi Sidi Abdel-Rahman, and featuring a spacious pool, and an exquisite menu, Cheers  is here for the competition this year. On its rooftop lies the brand new shisha lounge Shisha and Nabrisha, and right next to it is Tablia, serving Sahel's freshest breakfasts up until 3PM in true Egyptian fashion. By night, Cheers is transformed into a hot night spot featuring the hottest DJs and entertainment acts. The whole package, they call it.

Sodic’s Olympia

Despite a heart-wrenching loss to Russia in what was Egypt's second World Cup match in decades, some Egyptians will no-doubt carry on with paying their undivided attention to the World Cup as they have over the years. In Sahel, THE spot for doing that is the newly-opened Sodic’s Olympia, where you can eat, drink, and get watch each and every World Cup match until the winning team is announced.
