The only place you can have a drink with an Ostrich, Camel, donkey and peacocks in Luxor!
We didn't eat here but it was certainly worth a visit, excellent service from friendly staff and just maybe the maddest place I have ever been. Fully set upturned tables hanging from the ceiling, swimming pool with waterfall of course! Fish tanks as tables. There is also a dance floor and pool table. Great atmosphere as it's just so mad!
To complete the evening hire Tarek Crocodile to drive you there in his pimped out taxi, car number 1617 - 00(20) 102758660, certainly an experience that will stay with me.

Been to Genesis several times over the years. Always had a good night. Always had good food. A pub that has a theme of its own, from the mini zoo at the rear to the swimng pool with a bridge and rock waterfall, fish tank tables, upside down laid table on the celing. Just a shame it is so far out of Luxor, but there again taxis are cheap. A place like this would do a bomb in Luxor itself.

Not my kind of place - very mishmash and dark interior and was not keen to eat there - it does attract lots of people especially on Thursday and Friday when there is music and dancing - I wouldn't return but for something different has an appeal

We were taken to this pub by our taxi driver. Just an amazing place to visit. Julia, our landlady, can tell you anything you need to know about Luxor, and beyond and the service was friendly and prompt. You really should put this on your 'must do' list - as the experience ( And it really is a place you have to experience as a written description will not do it justice) will make you want to go back as we did. ps there is a small disco area (amongst other attractions) for those in the mood later on...
