    Green Zone Cafe: Great food & drink

    by Paulie52 Written Oct 4, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place was bombed about a year ago, but is back in business with much tighter security. The food is great (I'm a big fan of the couscous) with pizza, sandwiches, fish (pick your fish out of a big pool on premises), Middle Eastern, etc.

    I was there a few months back and had a great time. Like all things in Baghdad, though, it is sort of a "go at your own risk" type place. Definitely my favorite night spot in Baghdad... actually it is the only one I am familiar with!

    Oh, and very reasonable. Dinner should run from $5-10 and a beer is something like $2.

    Dress Code: None... Don't bring in weapons, though.

  • Al Madar Hotel: Night and Life an Oxymoron

    I find that under the bed or in the bath is the best nightlife spot in Baghdad. Sandbags and two layers of 3/8 steel with a two inch air gape works well on windows.

    Dress Code: Anything in kevlar with a trauma plate back and front

    At the river bank

    Visiting Abu-Nawas Street overlooking the Tigris you are sure to find all sorts of night entertainment in that kilometers-long embankment street in Baghdad.

    Downtown at night, Baghdad

    It was nice to have a walk in that square at night at that time.
    I don't think it would be a good idea now...
    I keep my fingers crossed...
