Check-out date

There are two main types of bars in Cairo: traditional Egyptian style bars, known as “caféterias” and typical Western style bars. The “caféterias” have solely male customers and serve small plates of food. Both men and women are welcome and will feel comfortable and at ease in the Western style bars, which often serve food as well.

There is a pulsing variety of vivacious nightlife in Cairo. Most of the large, upscale hotels have nightclubs attached to them, and most of these are a safe bet for a good night out.

Pub 28

Pub 28 is a cosy Western-style bar with a neighbourhood feel to it. It is especially popular with the over 30 crowd. If you are hungry they serve pub food.
