We were told about Genesis by a local friend who agreed to take us there on our last evening in Luxor. Sadly because of the lack of tourists it was almost empty. I'm sure that when it's busier there is more of an atmosphere. We...More

If you are drinking spirits, they charge muxh more if you order them in the garden. Also the peacock eats cigarette butts so I don't think it's well looked after.

A very nice place to sit and have a couple of beers with you friends. But if you a looking for a restaurant, better look for something else. It wasn't bad though, just not cosy to eat. So have a beer and be happy here.

The owner Gamal always ensures that visitors and regulars (Which I hope includes me and my wife) receive a warm welcome. Prices are very reasonable and the food is good. Saturday nights are usually bouncing.

We went along to Genesis bar after reading about it on trip advisor! Had a great evening. The owner, Gamal was very attentive and a genuine guy. He offered to show us around the bar which also involved meeting 'zooba' the ostrich. As tame and...More
