Lonely Planet review

Just north of Sharia Saad Zaghloul, Spitfire feels almost like a Bangkok bar – sans go-go girls. It has a reputation as a sailors’ hang-out and the walls are plastered with shipping-line stickers, rock-and-roll memorabilia and photos of drunk regulars. It’s a great place for an evening out on one of the world’s finest harbours, listening to American rock and roll from the 1970s.
