We were told about Genesis by a local friend who agreed to take us there on our last evening in Luxor. Sadly because of the lack of tourists it was almost empty. I'm sure that when it's busier there is more of an atmosphere. We...More

If you are drinking spirits, they charge muxh more if you order them in the garden. Also the peacock eats cigarette butts so I don't think it's well looked after.

This bar is right outside of the Hilton Luxor. You must go here for a good time. The staff are friendly and there is always a party going on. An easy walk from the hotel and worth the trip!

A very nice place to sit and have a couple of beers with you friends. But if you a looking for a restaurant, better look for something else. It wasn't bad though, just not cosy to eat. So have a beer and be happy here.

The owner Gamal always ensures that visitors and regulars (Which I hope includes me and my wife) receive a warm welcome. Prices are very reasonable and the food is good. Saturday nights are usually bouncing.
