Description
We opened JJ's Bar & Restaurant in Karnak, Luxor on the 12th January 2009 after a two year build After 8 years of business in Karnak, Luxor - JJ's Bar & Restaurant moved to El Gezira Hotel, Geziret-el-Beirat, West Bank, Luxor and re opened on the 1st September 2017, where we operated from the top floor restaurant and bar and ground floor garden. We have now moved to El Gezira Gardens Hotel. Here we provide a full menu plus daily specials boards, a good selection of beers and wines and organise theme nights, live music and regular entertainment.
