It doesn’t have to be Mother’s Day to pamper your granny and it’s not always boring to spend time with older family members. Check out this list of great ways to spend great time with your grand mother.
1) Sophisticated Granny:
If you have a sophisticated granny who is very selective when it comes to dining, you should probably take her for a dinner date to Five Bells in Zamalek or Rossini in Heliopolis. Both Piano Bars are chic, unique and have a delicious menu.
2) Legendary Granny:
If your granny likes to feel precious and exceptional, take her to a place where legends stayed! The Mena House Hotel accommodated historic legends like Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill and Frank Sinatra! Yes the hotel is a legend itself but it is also budget friendly, offering LE500 for day use or LE250 for pool use.
3) Nostalgic Granny:
Not all grandmas are up for something new. Some prefer to go to the same places they grew up with. Take her for an afternoon tea and a dessert at Groppi or Al Americaine in Downtown Cairo.
4) Cool Granny:
Cool grannies are the ones who believe that age is just a number. If your granny still enjoys sun and fun, take her to Villa Belle Epoque, a hidden boutique hotel in the heart of Maadi with 33 differently themed rooms founded in the 1920’s. She can have a dip in the pool or just lay under the autumn sun enjoying a book and their specialty Crème Brulee.
5) Laid Back Granny:
We guarantee a beautiful morning at the Swiss Club. Lemonade and a nice intimate talk in the outdoor area are all what a laid back granny needs.
6) Artsy Granny:
Do you have a granny who is interested in arts and culture? Take her for a movie at Zawya Theatre, an art-house cinema located in Downtown. Zawya screens an alternative selection of films from the Arab region, Europe and the rest of the world.
7) Socialite Granny:
If your granny used to be IT and had lots of friends who met up often and now aren’t encouraged enough, bring them together for a reunion at Le Chantilly, a Swiss restaurant/garden located in Heliopolis. They’ll have fun enjoying the delicious pastries and croissant this place offers since ages!
