    Interactive Cinema!

    by mindcrime Written Jul 19, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Going to cinema was very funny for me. Choose a holywood blockbuster pay 1 euro for entrance and go inside. They use arab subtitles so if the movie is in english it wont be a problem for u.

    The local people seem to participate in a party! They clap when they like a scene, they cry or get angry when they don't! There's no problem for them talking each other like in a cafe and and the first thing that came to my mind was "Cinema Paradiso" :)

    I saw 3 movies but the best moment was at KING KONG. 5 minutes before the end of the movie they stood up and left because King Kong was killed! :)

    Windows on the World: Magical Evening drinks

    by SabrinaSummerville Written May 13, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The top floor of the Ramses Hilton is devoted to a most spectacular restaurant and bar which is, quite appropriately, named Windows on the World. As you can guess, there are windows all around the room with incredible views of Cairo.

    We arrived too late for dinner, but the management had no objection when we asked if we could stay for drinks, which were served up to about 1.30pm.

    We sat at a table by the window as our Egyptian host proudly pointed out the highlights of Cairo at night.

    There is also a live band here each evening and I wished we had time to return for dinner. We didn't this time, but hopefully on the return visit.....

    Dress Code: The Hotel is elegant, and this restaurant is especially elegant. I would wear something very smary and prepare myself to enjoy an especially magical evening.

    Pullman Bar: Music and Drinking 'till Late

    by SabrinaSummerville Written May 8, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the name of the bar on the first floor of the Sofitel Maadi Towers. It’s small and comfortable and, I would think, recently refurbished in comfortable hues of rich red and olive green.

    Service is always with a smile and the tables are already set with crisps, pretzels, and peanuts. They feature a cocktail of the night for about €3 and in the evening there is a minimum charge per person, which again is very reasonable.

    There is live music from Tuesday to Friday inclusive and this begins at 9.30pm. Remember, the locals are all late-nighters so don’t plan for anything to start early.

    They like to get to know their clients by name – I was surprised when they greeted me by name the first night I walked into the bar. I guess it’s hotel policy to learn the names of all guests. I was suitably impressed.

    If you are a resident then they will also allow you to bring your favourite tipple, register it at the bar for a corkage fee, and drink your own.

    Dress Code: It's the main bar in the five star Maadi Towers so I would advise you to dress smartly.

    Live Music: Hard Rock Cafe

    by hez28 Written Apr 26, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Not different from any other Hard Rock café around the world.

    It was difficult for us to get here. No taxi drivers have heard of HRC, even locals on the street. weird.. I guess it’s only popular amongst ex pats. Once u’re in, it’s all American. Egyptian waitresses speaking perfect English, with American accent!

    The location is great, in Garden City, facing the river Nile where you can get picturesque views, especially during sunset.

    Faluka Night Ride

    by frockland Written Apr 21, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For many Cairians its a pleasure to do a faluka trip at night. Many boats are waiting to take passengers out on the Nile.

    Dont forget to bargain about the price and even more important dont forget earplugs*. The obligatory ghetto blaster on board will blare constantly full volume trying to make you deaf!

    Shopping.!

    by siso010 Written Jul 18, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Night Shopping is a good idea specially for women who wants to buy some stuff.
    downtown area is the best because its near everything,but if you want some better stuff you can go to Masr Gededa which is away from Tahrir sqaure 1 hour because of traffic.

    Check my Shopping section soon.

    River Trip.!: Night FLucca.!

    by siso010 Written Jul 18, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Enjoy the night in a flucca on the river nile,you can rent one for 1 or 2 or 3 hours or whatever you like to stay.
    we paid 60 pounds per hour last year when you took in.

    its very funny specially when you are just couples
    you can also share other people with the same flucca and pay only 1 pound for a round of 15 minutes.see how local egyptians enjoy it :)

    Location: Tahrir area the port of the small boats "Marsa".

    Mountain: Mokattam Hill.!

    by siso010 Written Jul 18, 2005

    Its another nice area where you enjoy staying while seeing Cairo from a top view at the night while everything is lighting.

    The only disadvatage that it is a bit far from the downtown but it worthed.

    We had a fantastic night on the River Nile watching the belly dancers and the whirling Dervishes who didn't stop twirling for ages and made us feel quite dizzy,id love to know how they do it.?You can book these nights through most hotels or from the boats along the Nile.

    Time out: shisha nights

    by call_me_rhia Written Mar 21, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We found this place by chance, walking about after dinner. We liked the atmosphere: small, cosy, full of young people smoking shishas - and especially with women, too, unescorted and unveiled. The kind of place where no one looks strangely at you. And the shisha was excellent.

    Dress Code: it's still egypt - it's better to dress conservatively.

    Walk by the Nile

    by travelife Written Feb 23, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A walk by the Nile is also recommended. You get to see the shades of boats in the Nile as well as Cairo tower. But taking a ride something I couldn imagine. The loud Aarbic music, in my sense, was perhaps destrying the environment.
