Bull's Eye Pub, tucked away on a side street in Dokki
opposite the Shooting Club, is probably the closest thing Cairo has to a British style pub, popular with a slightly older Egyptian and expat crowd.
Dimly lit, and with a drinking area and a dining area, you'll find groups of locals propping up the bar, furiously drinking the bottles of Jonnie Walker that they have left with the barmen. As well as a wide selection of alcohol, Bull's Eye also does very good pub grub. The steaks are decent, especially the House Steak, and the Seafood Bake is excellent.
As the name suggests, Bull's Eye is a mecca for darts players, and they have a dartboard set up in one corner. You can get darts from behind the bar, though they aren't always that good quality.
As well as drinking, darts and dining, Bull's Eye has regular music nights – such as karaoke, or local DJ's. It can get very crowded on these nights, and the doormen are unlikely to let in groups of single men. If you do manage to make it in, the atmosphere is upbeat and lively.
Bull's Eye is well worth checking out if you are in the area, especially since there aren't that many other places near by that serve alcohol!
