The Happy City Hotel, a lovely three-star establishment, conceals a delightful surprise on its upper floors. While taking in the breathtaking panorama of Wust El-Balad, relax with a cold one and some of the neighbourhood’s famous mezza. The main meals, soups, and salads are all delicious, but it’s the mezza that will have you coming back for more!

It doesn’t feel right to talk about bars and beer in Cairo without mentioning the Tap franchise. But this one is mainly for the Sheikh Zayed folks to enjoy their beer day at the Tap West in Galleria 40! Here, you can find live shows, excellent food, and many drink options.
