Lebanese Restaurant

“Amazing Lebanese place. Great for the most well known Middle Eastern dishes like hummus, falafel, and of course taboula. Order a bunch of mezzes instead of getting a main dish.”

Cafe
“Café and art space with regular concerts, dance workshops or others. They also serve snacks. Look for concerts on their facebook page. Meet the cool youth of Cairo.”

Library
“Get yourself to this bookstore before you leave Egypt! There is also a location in New Cairo. This one is in downtown, easy to get to if you're staying in central Cairo. The Egypt section is full of beautiful travel books, tourism guides, etc. Many interesting books you will want to take home. Also, the bookstore is full of novels and books by various authors in the middle east. It's so worth perusing and finding special books you wouldn't find back home. Every first Saturday of the month, books are all 20% off. So that's a good day to take advantage and binge buy!”

Bar

“Stash is a more high end type of bar in Cairo with truly amazing views of the city! It's an all glass rooftop bar, surrounded on three sides by floor to ceiling windows that can be completely opened up when the weather is good. It's also a restaurant with great food too. You must come for the views of Cairo! *Make a reservation! You can't just walk in. ”
