Cairo is a big city with heavy traffic. So it makes sense to stick to the neighborhood you live in/work in when it comes to kicking back with a drink and sweet talk after a long day because you’re trying to de-stress, not to be stuck in traffic for more than an hour.
Here are some new places in the east & west of Cairo to give them a try.
