Papa’s Beach Club
Drink and dance at this open air dance club, bar and restaurant on the beach. The open air club plays house and techno music most nights, with some R&B thrown in. Sip a cocktail at the bar, a table, or under a parasol on the beach. Dance under the stars or swing in a hammock in the back of the bar. Remember to wear comfortable footwear as there’s sand everywhere other than the dance floor.
The club looks quite impressive and the entry fee includes a free drink, or two, depending on who you ask. There’s a dance show that’s well done but not very original. Not many locals frequent the place, possibly because of the entry fee. Or, it could be for the same reason several reviewers left with a bad taste in their mouth. This bar has more bad reviews than good, and several ex-patrons claim they were swindled and intimidated into paying for drinks they didn’t order. All in all, you probably won’t miss anything if you skip this bar.
Ministry of Sound
Ministry of Sound is the place to go to when you are in Hurghada, or even Egypt in general. This popular club is an open air, 1500 person capacity venue with stunning podium dancers, fantastic DJ’s and a great sound and light system. Every night of the week there’s a different party, different decor and different music. They have theme nights like Latin Grooves, Smoove (R&B + Hip Hop), Old Skool, Big Tunes and Dance Nation. The atmosphere is one of a kind. It doesn’t get much better than partying on the beach under the stars.
Prices are fair and you get tokens upon entrance for a free drink. All of the staff are friendly and the service is also very good.
