How to Party in Sahel On a Budget: A 1000 EGP Budget

Okay, so before you get super offended by the title, we all need to face the fact that this year’s prices in Sahel have hit the roof, penetrated it, reached the moon and are sitting back laughing at us.


We understand that nightlife isn’t for everyone, however for the many of us who patiently wait for summer’s guiltless debauchery, Sahel is our partying haven. So obviously we need to find a way to party all weekend without ending up being broke until we get our next paycheck, take a bank loan or ask baba for masrouf.


You might think ‘OMG, 1000 EGP? Has Scoop Empire gone mad?’, but this painful side of Egypt exists whether we like it or not. So let us break down for you how much each of Sahel’s top outings will cost you. These next 6 venues are the most-talked about spots in 2016 and the only ones that are worthy of your cash.


6ix Degrees




An awesome venue, with a killer line of acts, hot go-go and belly dancers and may I add that their Ramy DJunkie’s nights are insane. Prices range from (EGP 400 – bar, EGP 450/person – high table, EGP 600/person – lounge).






A beach bar located in Hacienda that has taken the Sahel by storm. From pizzas that will leave your mouth watering until the end of August to cocktails that look like a dream. If you’re in the mood for some socializing and food porn, expect to pay at least EGP 350.

Just last weekend byGanz threw one of their signature parties in Andiamo, prices ranged from (EGP 400 – bar, EGP 450/person – high table, EGP 600/ person – lounge). But we all know no matter how much they cost, we’re going.


Club Central




We are absolutely obsessed with Sahel’s newest club. Three different themes and genres each weekend (House, Hip-Hop and Cabaret). It has something for literally everyone. Prices range from (EGP 400 – bar, EGP 450/person – high table, EGP 500/ person – lounge).

Fine dining heaven, out of this world food, stellar crowd and somewhere to unleash your inner diva. Don’t expect a party however starting 1 AM, music gets louder and people start blissfully swaying. The perfect ambience comes along with an EGP 400 minimum charge.


Back 2 Basics




A never ending series of hard core dancing and wicked music. If you missed the first party, you don’t need to worry, you might still have more chances to attend a B2B night. Tickets range from (EGP 400 – Bar, EGP 500 high table and lounge).


And finally one of my favorite spots in Cairo, The Tap North




Imagine The Tap East with a pool and the best music you will ever listen to while making a fool out of yourself in water. Your minimum charge is EGP 250 on weekends and again, don’t miss their Ramy DJunkie pool parties.
