Huh, Can you rock at the Pyramids of Giza? Well, if you shake the butt, maybe. Ofcourse you can rock at the Pyramids, but i'm trying to describe the Hard Rock cafe. Cairo has a Hard Rock cafe. It's not very far away from the Pyramids, so when you have day or night off. Start Rocking.
Among all of the more than 100 hardrock cafes around the globe, Cairo has certainly one of the most impressive locations – on the shore of the River Nile. The view is breathtaking. While sitting at one of the barstools next to the large windows, you can see feluccas, the huge illuminated water fountain in the middle of the Nile – all that topped only by the skyline of downtown Cairo, with bridges, the Cairo tower, hotels and other high-rises.
Dress Code: When you like to buy a T-shirt of this Egyptian Cafe, and you're noty goning to have the time to buy on in Cairo. Don't worry! I've found T-shirts of this Cafe in Luxor, Aswan and even in Kom Ombo.
Eventhough the place is small but the spirit of the guests there makes it unlimited and spacious.
Jazz, Salsa, oriental music and more are played depending on the day of the week.
people are happy and relaxed there so step in take off your jacket and dance in the spot.
they serve nice food and open all day and close very late at night.
Dress Code: dress decent and clean you are out to enjoy and people should too, so dont hurt their vision.
We had dinner at Merryland and it's a very very crowded and festive place @ Heliopolis.
We had fantastic western dinner at this al fresco resturant near the man-made lake.
It was the 4th day after Ramadam and everyone were in a celebrative mood. There were even small fireworks.
it's kind of like a entertainment belt with restaurants and shops. Very interesting.
Fun just to walk up and down Talaat Harb about ten PM when the street is teeming with windowshoppers of all denominations. Feels like real Egypt, not like the oh god, someone else is trying to get me in a perfums shop at the bazaar!
Enjoy a fig juice or a pastry at one of the many shops along the way. If it gets to hot, pop ionto the arctic mall about halway down on Talaat Harb.
Just a quick tip for those people wanting to party in Cairo (and probably more of the Islamic country) - the w'end is not Sat/Sun. The BIG partying night is Thursday because Friday is a public holiday.
Most of the big clubs are in 5-star hotels
The nightlife is there in Sharm if you have someone to show you where to find it... we celebrated New Years Eve at a gorgeous International Hotel. (the party was so good I can't remember the name of the Hotel!)
I was really shocked to see a sign that read 'Please put all firearms here'. The arrow was pointing to what I would have called the 'cloakroom reception area'... the real scary thing was this sign appeared after we had already been scanned by two metal detecting doorways with security guards!
Something else I learned was, people in Egypt don't arrive to celebrate New Years Eve until about 11.45pm! You should have seen my face when we walked into the Club at about 10.30pm and discovered we were the first to arrive! Ah! But at about 11.55pm there was standing rooms only and the place was really pumping! It was the BEST New Years Party EVER!
Thanx to this amazing man (in the photo with me) I now have a thousand memories... my eyes have been opened to so much... Frank, what can I say... you are my soulmate... forever yours.
Dress Code: Dressed to impress!
Ladies just remember if you are partying around Egyptian men most of them haven't see a clevage in public before!! So take it easy and don't be offended if they say you're 'topless'.

Good live band with good musics, good food and good sightseeing...across the river nile as the ship cruises across the river banks
Going to the cinema can be nice for a change. Cairenes like it. Local movies are cheaper than Hollywood productions. Prices vary between 8 E.p. to 20 E.P. depending on the movie.
If Cairo is busy at day time, then its even more busy during the evenings. Its save to walk through the street in down town Cairo and dive into the night-life. Dot miss it!
sleek, trendy ultra-highend restaurant in cairo. great atmosphere, excellent food, highest end restaurant in all of cairo.
Few days ago before we visited Cairo, the festival of sacrifice or Eid-ul-Adha was over. But still some light-decoration reamined.
If you are around Khan al khalil, you may get to see some of the famous mosques in Cairo by night, e.g Huseyn Mosque and Al Azhar.
We have also see some colonian ers building in central Cairo. There are too many road crossings taking into account the endless traffic. But you get used to it after spending a day or two.
