Cafe Cairo Review

You know, something doesn’t add up at Café Cairo.

It’s perfectly located just minutes from Clapham North tube, but because it’s just off Clapham High Street it’s got a bit of a hidden gem status which I guess helps explain the more laid back (rather than lagered up) crowd.

As the name Café Cairo would suggest, there is a North African theme. Though thankfully it’s not that contrived over-the-top look, sure, there are hookah pipes and metal-ware lampshades but you won’t find staff wearing Fez’s here.

Considering the space is a bit awkward (it’s quite narrow but makes up for it in length), the bar doesn’t feel too claustrophobic even on a Friday. Downstairs there’s a snug dance-floor, leather poufs and a teeny table with weeny stools (I guess you have to squint and squat if you want to give them a go).

Drinks are pretty steep; a spirit with mixer is £4 a pint of Stella is £3.20. Come to think of it, perhaps the prices might explain the slightly more sober crowd. Anyway, poor (as I am) old (mind your own business) me got charged £7.60 for a two-pint jug of lager. Ok, it’s my own fault I should have asked how many pints the jug held and I should have worked it out, still….

But I’m afraid, Café Cairo, getting overcharged on already hefty prices hasn’t put a Nile on my face.

“I love this place, and have been a couple of times. Really quirky, and something different to take people to when they come to visit. Would recommend Cafe Cairo for an unusual evening out, some interesting music and some tasty Sheesha!”

"My Gulascheintopf war perfekt and so was the Weissbier. I was in Kingston Steins. I do have a few suggestions for decor and table. 1. you need a little jar of toothpicks on the table to get meat out from..." Which venue is this?

Hated

"I visited browns alone after work and got convinced to spend an hour in the “VIP” room with Jennifer - which is just a corner of the private dance area - no privacy at all. I essentially paid £500 for..." Which venue is this?
