Ramadan Guide 2016

You could do the same old 3zoumaat every day for the next 30 days, or you could see what else is going on for Ramadan all across the city and change it up a little this year with our comprehensive guide to going out during the holy month.

It happens every Ramadan. Every single Ramadan we go from one place to the next and then, at the end of the month, we discover that there had been a ton of cool places to go for iftar, sohour, and random cool experiences. Every year we lament the missed experiences, so this year we've rounded them up so we can get ahead of the game and know where to go, what to expect, and how to plan 30 awesome nights of family, friends, iftars, and sohours. Ramadan kareem!
