From sunset to sunrise, here’s the places that will probably be plastered over your feeds with fire emojis this Sahel season.
Sahel is one of Egypt’s best kept secrets for tourists, the white sand and crystal blue waters are usually reserved for local trippers but for some reason, two months out of the year the Mediterranean hotspot turns into some sort of supercharged European party destination. A condensed Ibiza with organizers and venues competing to get the crowd's attention with bigger bookings and bigger productions each year - despite the scenic shores the general vibe for 50% of Sahel goers is rave - sleep - rave - repeat where the most sun seen is probably early hours of the morning as the headlining DJ reaches their peak. Below we’ve gathered a list of venues that will be fueling the nightlife in Sahel this Summer - many are bar/lounges operational during the day but with specific parties as part of their regular scheduling. We'll be updating this list as and when new parties and venues are announced so stay tuned.
