At Nox, couples can relive the magic of nostalgic music with a tribute to the Beatles. “Glass Onion” band, who possess fantastic high energy performance, will have couples dancing the night away. The talented Brits understood love better than the best of us, so it wouldn’t be Valentine’s without the Beatles. The party will also be hosted by DJ Ahmed Ghandokly, the romantic sounds of violinist Samira Riachy and a belly dance performance by Sahar, all with an exclusive dine and party rooftop experience with a magical view of the Nile. One phone call and EGP 600+ per person (including 3 bar bites and chocolate strawberry dips), you could guarantee yourself a table at Nox!
At the rustic Italian restaurant Vivo, you will be served a 5 course dinner, along with a bottle of wine per couple starting from EGP 700, while you take in the breathtaking scenery of the Nile. Or if you’re planning to go big on your gift this year, you could opt instead for the romantic 3 course menu that comes along with two glasses of wine and starts at EGP 450. The entertainment of the night will be provided by the dreamy sounds of live Opera singer and violinist Samira Riachy.
And after one is tired from dancing and singing the night away, The Nile Ritz is offering ‘Be My Valentine’ room packages that are exclusive to Valentine dinners. Guests are welcomed to enjoy the comfort of a luxurious room for the night before returning to Culina in the morning for a delightful breakfast.
