Belly dancing shows light up the dining room at 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday–Saturday.
A puff of smoke accompanies a striking transformation: at Horus Cafe, a small piece of New York City becomes a chunk of another continent. Egyptian hieroglyphics cover walls and pillars within a softly lit dining room, and colorful tiles pattern the tables. Middle Eastern music starts to play, and like djinni emerging from a multifamily bottle, a group of belly dancers begins to move. As they do, they might disrupt clouds of hookah smoke that smell of pineapple, mint, and other nicotine-free flavors. The music and applause can be heard outside, where outdoor tables brim with Mediterranean and Egyptian cuisine, with grilled kebabs and traditional vegetarian dishes such as hummus, falafel, and kosharee, a blend of lentils, pasta, and chick peas.
This is the scene at Horus Cafe's Avenue B location, where the celebration of international culture and cuisine stretches until 4 a.m. every night of the week. The displays of belly dancing happen four nights a week, followed by DJs spinning hip hop, top 40 hits, and international music. Similar festivities unfold at Horus' other New York City locations.
