At New President Hotel you have the two popular bars Amici and Bar D’O as well as the newly opened Restaurant Olivo. Bar D’O is slightly bigger than Amici and has a more rough ‘New Yorker’-look with its bare brick walls and soft house and RnB music playing in the background.
Bar D’O is especially known for its ‘jar’ cocktails, which is literally cocktails served in large jars that complements the hipster atmosphere. The jars at 720ml cost 100-120 LE and you get your money’s worth as oppose to the smaller cocktails at 70 LE. The menu also includes Sangria pitchers at 210 LE and various shooters. The well stocked bar shelves holds a good selection of foreign liquor and the bartenders seems to know what they are doing.
Depending on the night Bar D’O sometimes has a minimum charge especially on nights with live music. The bar doubles as an art space as shown by the décor and the rotating artwork.
