SOHO Square - the Red Sea’s pedestrianised square mile of restaurants, bars, shopping and entertainment - has something special for this year’s holiday season: the new Khan El Khalili souk.
Containing 52 shops, the new development offers guests everything from sports wear for swimming, diving and snorkeling, to gold, silver, crystal, sapphires, precious stones, ceramics and onyx to galleries, pictures and books.
A duty free shop will also make sure prices are kept low.
But that is not all that is new this season, with Sharm also set to welcome Hakuna Matata, a new food cellar
Here restaurant Poisson Marché will present the finest fresh fish, while Casablanca Café, a North African themed coffee shop, Ola! Tapas, Iberian light bites and Falafel’s Egyptian Diner will also be opening to the public.
SOHO Square is the most popular place for visitors to eat, drink, have fun and shop on the Red Sea and the best place to eat and drink of all Red Sea resorts according to international restaurant reviewers.
The new piano bar in the British House reflects the sophisticated, timeless mood of a gentile era – a romantic place to listen to Latino music played by a pianist accompanying a vocalist every Monday and Thursday (20:00–00:00).
In Akunna Matata, there is Kids Disco daily which starts from 20:30 and a Philipino Band every Tuesday and Thursday from 21:00.
Seven tip-top restaurants offer cuisine from all over the world, attracting rave reviews from restaurant critics and diners.
They range from French fine cuisine to Indian, Chinese, Middle East and International.
The great new El Kahwa traditional Egyptian café - with its fabulous selection of coffees, including Turkish, pastries and light snacks – is also likely to prove a hit.
Among the six bars, the British-style Queen Vic pub serves ale; wines and spirits and shows Premier League football. The Ice bar is the first in Africa and the Middle East.
The popular Pangaea Nightclub is Sharm’s first internationally staffed venue with British management, British promotion, UK resident DJs and European hostesses.
The Ice Rink attracts young and old, Culturama Panorama is an innovative harmonized mix between a wealth of cultural and natural heritage information and there’s a popular state-on-the-art ten-pin bowling alley.
SOHO Square attracts crowds enjoying concerts by top international artistes and the ‘cool club set’ at night; with Peter Andre and Ali Campbell expected in town over the next few months.
SOHO Square is a few steps away from the Savoy Hotel and resort, consistently voted Sharm El Sheikh’s most popular hotel.
