Deals is a good, unpretentious watering hole in the heart of Zamalek with very reasonable prices

Deals is a mainstay of the Zamalek
drinking scene. It's a cramped, slightly dim bar just off the main 26th July street in Zamalek, and is popular with both expats and upper class Egyptians. It's friendly and quite lively, and if you go there alone, you can quickly find yourself drawn in to conversations with the nearest group of drinkers. The staff at Deals are friendly, the service is quite efficient, and drinks prices tend to be reasonable. Be careful if you drink the imported spirits, though, since the cost of these quickly mounts up. Deals also offers bar snacks and simple meals, as well as a selection of Chinese food. Deals stays open quite late – last orders tend to be about 1.30 am.
