Walking into Pub 28 on Zamalek is like walking into a British local pub. The joint is heavy on the wooden panelling and arches, dimly lit by chunky iron lamps, and there is a large, well-stocked bar.

Walking into Pub 28 on Zamalek is like walking into a British local pub. The joint is heavy on the wooden panelling and arches, dimly lit by chunky iron lamps, and there is a large, well-stocked bar.

Although Pub 28 is quite big, it can get very crowded and smoky. The clientele is a slightly older crowd of expats and Egyptians, although there a few trendy youngsters (both Egyptian and foreign) knocking about too. When it's busy, it's almost impossible to get a seat, and the hubub of conversation easily drowns out the generic pub pop coming from the speakers.

This is the sort of place where people come to eat, and then break out the cigars and the ice buckets. The food is actually very good, although there isn't much choice. The steak dishes are your best bet, though there are also daily specials.

While Pub 28 is hardly a high octane night out, it does have a good atmosphere. You'll even see couples chatting each other up in a non-sleazy manner! The service is efficient, though the staff can be rather unfriendly. Still, you can't have everything!

Once inside, hard to believe it's Cairo. Seems like a portal to the British Isles. Comfortable and fun place with friends.

By far the top bar/pub in Cairo! Famous for it's delicious plates especially the white cheese with tomatoes! The entire menu is fantastic, quality never changed, always been amazing! It's a perfect place to meet your friends after work for a drink or a lunch in the middle of the day! Waiter are a bit rude and will only be nice to you if you become a regular, which probably needs you to go everyday for 10 years! Seriously this is the only place in Egypt where the faces never change! If you go at 1 pm everyday for example, you will see the same exact people, who strangely enough don't even change the table!

I just love this place! small cozy and amazing food! you can find people from all ages! I even went with my mom today for lunch and she just adored it!
it's good to find that there still are places in Egypt that aren't over commercialized!
whether you go for lunch or dinner, the atmosphere is amazing!
I recommend those little escalope or meat pieces!

Probably the best Pub in Egypt. The food is great!
Its a small cozy pub, so you will probably have to reserve in advance in the Week-ends. But I love the English style Pub where you are provided also with oriental Egyptian food at the same time. Its a great place to meet with your friends.
The only thing i will have to say is that the age range there is older than other places. Probably end 40's and onwards. Yet, I def do recommend this place as an ambiance, a great meal, and a gathering with friends.

Pub 28 is for me the top destination to go for a drink with the guys after work. Actually every time i go i see a bunch of friends in suits and i assume they all came straight from work and everyone seems to be having a good time. There are also the regulars who i assume stay with their bottle from the time the pub opens till they close.

The food is quite good, its actually really good. The drinks i mean as far as beer, wine, and hard liquor are concerned, they are normal as they are just bottles. But the place is renowned for its Sangria which tastes amazing, although i don't recommend driving home.
Place is also really cozy and the atmosphere is great. The only flaw in the place are the waiters, some of them are extremely rude and are so confident as they know they have their regulars who can keep the place alive.

By far the best pub in Town. Its central location in Zamalek makes it a convenient place to stop by for a quick drink any time of the day. The food is outstanding especially if you order different plates and have them cut into pieces.
The place is famous for its Sangria, maybe i would ask for it to be done with imported wine, but as the local wine is getting better, it shouldn't really give you a headache waking up in the morning.
The place is great for after work drinks and lunches with friends. Definitely its a hotspot at night but don't expect people dancing on tables as its just a bar.
