Mojo Cairo was founded in 2013, when Adam developed a new concept, introducing a retail shop, coffee bar and smoke lounge under one roof on Florida Road.
We are passionate about creating moments.
MoJo Cairo has become a firm fixture on Florida Road in Durban. The popularity is in no doubt due to the keen business savvy of owner, Adam, a keen world traveller who is originally from Egypt. Adam identified the need for a concept store in Durban offering fine cigars in a social setting. His own love of cigars started in 2001 and fuelled his desire to open up MoJo Cairo. This took him on a journey to Cuba to gain an extensive knowledge on the subject. There he watched first-hand, the process of making a good cigar. His time there also allowed him to immerse himself fully into Cuban culture and truly understand why Cuba produces some of the best cigars in the world. He has since tried the entire Habanos range, becoming somewhat of a cigar authority, with his establishment only serving up brands that he himself has carefully selected.
Born in Egypt, Adam arrived in South Africa in 2004. He acquired his South African citizenship in 2008, and also holds a Canadian residency status. Having travelled extensively and lived in three very different parts of the world, Adam is a cosmopolitan individual who is passionate about culture, cuisine, art and entertainment. This passion, coupled with his acute business sense and experience, has translated into several successful ventures on the local South African landscape.
In 2013 Adam developed a new concept, introducing a retail shop, coffee bar and smoke lounge under one roof on Florida Road. Come down and enjoy a hot or cold beverage served with a shisha pipe or cigar.
These days MoJo Cairo is a popular hangout for many people, including prominent businessmen and groups of friends or relatives. All who just want to relax in the lounge whilst indulging in cigars & hookah with the convenience of a docking station, flat screen television and unlimited free Wi-Fi. Sometimes on the weekends local musicians are given the opportunity to entertain patrons. The lounge has taken off to the extent where it needs to be booked in advance.
