Windsor Bar

Bar in Cairo

Alas, most of the regular clientele of the Windsor Hotel's bar has passed on, leaving a few hotel guests, a polyglot bartender and a faint soundtrack of swing jazz and Umm Kulthum. Colonial history has settled in an almost palpable film on the taxidermist’s antelope heads, the barrel-half chairs and the dainty wall sconces. Solo women will feel comfortable here.
