There is a social stigma associated with public inebriation. Although Egyptians sometimes opt to disregard this, a foreigner being intoxicated in public might create a negative image. The majority of local bars are testosterone-filled hard-drinking places where lone outsiders, particularly lone women, may feel unwelcome.

Having said that, there are various locations in Luxor where you may purchase alcohol. Numerous eateries, above the most basic on-street establishments, serve beer and wine. They are often identified by Stella signage outside or by the presence of people drinking inside. Two open-air cafés opposite the temple, around 200m south of the main entrance, provide Stella lager for 14LE including tax (as of September 2011) and other local beer and wine at cheap rates. Outside, the enormous Stella signs give them away. If you are unable to locate a handy establishment that serves alcohol, it may be prudent to seek instructions from the hotel staff. In Egypt, ‘cafeteria’ is a euphemism term for a bar, and pubs may be rather difficult to discover if you don’t know where to look.

There is a duty-free store at the Luxor Temple’s north end, visible slightly to the right across the busy crossroads; it has plastic see-through shutters on its windows and an outside guard. If you take your passport and leave Egypt within two days of arrival, you may get up to three bottles of well-known liquor, beer, and other beverages at significantly discounted costs per person. After two days, you can only purchase Egyptian currency. Additionally, they offer electrical equipment and are open till 10 p.m.

While drinking on the street or in parks is common among locals, it is not encouraged for outsiders since it is legally forbidden and alcohol is often reasonably priced at restaurants.
