The Cairo Opera House was inaugurated on October 10th, 1988, following a void, which lasted 17 Years since the burning down of Cairo's first and World famous Opera House in 1971.The Opera is comprised of three theatres and an art library,It also has an art gallery and two museums.
Dress Code: To see the opera,you must wear a neck tie,and ladies must wear formal.
but to see the galleries,it`s fine to be dressing casual.
It is decorated in the Moroccan style,as you can tell from it`s name.It`s located at the Blue Nile moored boat.This boat has 3 restaurants and a night club.
This night club plays international music as well as Egyptian and Arabic music,it has an inside dancing area(and a bar),and also has an outside seating area(if you want to escape the smoke and the crowd).
Dress Code: Reservations are highly recomanded.
Minimum charge policy applies,only if you are seated at a table...otherwise you only pay for your drinks.
If it haven`t been for my Egyptian friend I would never have knew this place by myself,as nothing tells you that it even exists.
The restuarant is inside a Building on the 1st floor, here you will dive into a world of exquisite taste.
Dress Code: You can be dressed formally or casually,But as for me I always try to be dressy as this place is one of the Elite places in Cairo,zamalek.
I would recommend reservations*
Rumours is arguably Cairo?s best piano bar and one of its premier night spots.
It has live music and really good food from it`s international cuisine menu.
Reservations are a must! It opens from 10p.m to 3 am.
If you`re accompanied by an Egyptian friend,i`m sure he/she would point out to you many celebrities dining in the next table or celebrating their birthday at this spot.
This place is closed,infact the hotel was bought by Sofitel,so it's no longer the Sheraton.I belive Budda Bar opend instead of it,same location.*
Dress Code: Formal.
A jacket is required for men and an evening dress for ladies.NO jeans are allowed.
Also it has the minimum charge policy per person,,it`s about 100 Egyptian pound(less than 20$).
Reservations is a must.
This Moored boat on the Nile has three options:
1-Dine at the Arabic side of the deck,where you have the chance to eat and smoke shisha and listen to the Arabian tunes(live music and singers).
2-To dine at the westren side of the deck.
3-To dance the night away on the lower level of the boat.
Dress Code: Mostly formal unless your going dancing.
Also have in mind that this place have the minimum charge policy which means what ever you have for dinner you will still pay the same amount of money,and prices go up in the summer times as the place gets crowded with Arab tourists.(min.charge is about 100 egyptian pounds) about 20$ per person.
This is what the british call a "pub"..
it offers alcohol drinks as well as good food.
It has 3 branches ,but I only went to the one located at Zamalek.
Dress Code: You can dress casually.no reservations required only that on weekends it`s really crowded.
This theater runs plays in Arabic.I have seen atleast 2 plays there.The theater is not so big,,but it`s cozy and the seats are comfortable.
In the summer time the show starts at 10:00 pm.ends late nights (about 3 am).
The tickets are sold at the enterance,though it`s better to book and buy the tickets ahead.
The fees are for 70,100,150 Egyptian pounds.
Dress Code: You can wear what ever you wish,,but have in mind that the AC is very high,,so you might concider wearing long sleeved shirt.
