Cool Hangouts n Zamalek

In Cairo you can entertain yourself and enjoy your time with friends and enjoy great cuisine,great food and great ambiance, you find that in several restaurants and bars and cafe in several areas like Zamalek and Mohandesseen, Dokki ,Maadi ect......
lets start with the Zamalek area coolest hangouts where you can wine and dine and enjoy great company and great ambiance,L'Aubergine(Zamalek)Situated on a small side street off Brazil Street in Zamalek, Its a two floors restaurant ,the ground floor area oozes warmth as you step in,its decorated in modern furniture,the ambient lighting and simple furniture invite you to have a relaxed dinner and drinks. Among the bustling conversations, the service is attentive and quick. The menu hasn’t changed much over the years and would especially cater to vegetarians with many interesting non-meat options such as vegetarian couscous (32LE), ricotta/mint ravioli with yoghurt sauce (34LE), pumpkin kobeiba and their known to be delicious mushroom quartet (38LE).
 The chicken teriyaki main course (48LE) was tasty, with a slight kick of spice and tender pieces of chicken lathered in teriyaki sauce. The rice could have been a bit smoother and the sauce a little bit lighter, but overall it was enjoyable. The gnocchi with Bolognese sauce (36LE) was also very good, being well seasoned and full of flavour. However, the gnocchi pieces themselves are quite large and could fill you up rather quickly.

They serve most alcohols at L’Aubergine, with the actual bar placed upstairs, though. A Heineken beer goes for 31LE, and as the most expensive wine, a glass of Ayam Zaman costs 50LE, while a tequila shot is priced at 50LE.

The atmosphere is perfect for Thursday night drinks and a snack, or even a date. The chilled out music makes for a relaxed setting and the overall prices are relatively decent. If you’ve finished your meal and feeling like a little more action, maybe pop up to the upper floor and check out the shiny bar, younger crowds and pumping music. Otherwise, downstairs is the way to go.

For location and the reservation:

5 Sayed El Bakry St.
Zamalek, Cairo, Egypt.
