3al Genena Bar, Saint George Hotel, Dokki


July 2015


Udate 5/9: Prices just increased from 18Le to 26,50Le including tax. This sadly makes the place less worth travelling to if you dont live in the neighborhood, but 3al Genena is still a good alternative if you are tired of sitting at Rooftop every afternoon.


On the rooftop of the Saint George Hotel is a bar where you can enjoy a cold Stella while overlooking the Giza Zoo. It is one of the few places in Dokki where you find the combination of a chilled atmosphere and chilled beers. The bar is decorated with colourful lanterns that gives the place a warm and cozy feeling which reminds us of Rooftop in Zamalek. The 3al Genena (At the Garden) offers a wide variety of different shisha flavours and the food menu has a selection of pasta dishes, grilled dishes, sandwiches, pizzas and mezzas, which lives up to our expectations for cheap edible bar food (especially the grilled dishes).


In weekends the place is often full and it can be difficult to find a seat if you come late. The place has a big TV screen that often shows popular football matches and 3al Genena sometimes hosts live music or karaoke events - check their facebook page for what's coming up.
