Wonderful views, glitzy design and stellar drinks… If you’re hoping to impress your guests and enjoy one of the trendiest bars in the city, look no further than the OPIA Lounge & Bar.

Located on the 36th floor of the Ramses Hilton in the heart of Cairo, OPIA Lounge & Bar boasts some of the best views of the Nile and is a definite hotspot of the city’s nightlife. Trendy locals and stylish travelers come to enjoy the scenery, the modern and sophisticated design, and superbly crafted drinks.

Their drinks menu is impressive, featuring a wide range of signature cocktails as well as a good selection of wines and spirits. Sip on one of their house creations like the Egyptian Mojito, a savvy mix of Rum, Halva, black honey, mint and soda, or a Ramses Garden, a gin, cucumber, apple, mint and tonic refreshment that will leave you wanting more. For something slightly more traditional, the Old Fashioned Mai Tai or the Ouzo Sour showcase that simple associations create powerful flavors, and are a testament to the bartenders’ skills and knowledge of what makes a truly good cocktail.

Looking to keep your drinks local? Opt for the homemade infusions such as the Khan El Khalili, a beautifully crafted association of whisky, fig, dates, rosemary and honey, or the Chunky Summer, a retro-inspired vodka tea, peach, lemon and mint drink. There is truly something for everyone in the inspired and modern menu. And do not hesitate to sample the delicious food as well. Named “Opiates”, these mouthwatering bites will satisfy all your cravings.

While you might come for the view, you can be sure you’ll stay for the live music, fun and hip local crowds, and the seriously good cocktails. Far from your typical hotel bar, OPIA is sure to become a memorable part of your stay.
