To be clear' this is not a bar for heavy drinking, dancing, watching football or chatting people up. It is for drinking very nice drinks in very comfortable chairs in a low lit and fascinating environment with extremely friendly staff.
I have no idea how there could be so many quirky chandeliers and lamps giving off so little light, but the sensation is similar to the dark wood, centuries old bars in Dublin, black and white pictures, candles and wood carvings crammed into every alcove.
This place is as much a bolt-hole from the world as it is a bar.
Note: practically impossible to find, the door is to the left of the Egyptian museum entrance and designed for a hobbit.

we stayed at the Majestic hotel and if you come out of the lobby, turn left and cross the street this bar is on the right , you go down some stairs into a dimly lit, cool retro place with friendly staff and a good drinks menu, they make a great ( and large) Gin and Tonic . We went there on every one of the three nights we stayed. The bar is quirky with an art deco feel.
One night a lady sat doing tarot readings for pre booked locals. We really liked it and when we are in Barca again we will be back to visit.
