Crossing the Nile from Downtown on the 26th July bridge you come to the island of Gezira. The south of the island is the preserve of the el Gezira sporting club, the National Museum of Egyptian Modern Art and the distinctive Cairo Tower, whilst the north is the well-to-do residential area of Zamalek, home to many embassies. Famous for its boutiques, trendy restaurants and bars the neighbourhood is a nice place to enjoy some of Cairo’s more laid back nightlife.
