Ramadan brings the party animals, the lovey-doveys’ and the-sometimes-pain-in-the a** siblings/relatives together. So, no matter how hard you find fasting, or how you hold yourself back from cursing, or thinking about cursing your cousin; there is always a way to make the day pass with either a lavish or eventful Iftar/Sohour in one of Cairo’s best tents. Here’s a list of some annual favourite tents, and new surprisingly interesting ones too.


1) Bab Al Qasr @ Royal Maxim Palace Kempinsiki


One of the most luxurious tents is back again. Everybody already knows Bab Al Qasr and loves it, but its opening is what they’ll love more! For their opening, they decided to bring you the best combination of ‘RAMADAN’ and ‘FUN’. Bossy and Mahmoud El Leithy will be taking the stage by storm on the first Friday of Ramadan.
