Lord’s Inn

Parallel to the San Stefano building on a narrow street leading from the tramline to the sea, an Egyptian owner and his German wife set up the Lord’s Inn restaurant and discotheque. Those were the middle years between the time of Santa Lucia, Pam Pam etc and the later Au Privé, later still followed by Fever and other discotheques mostly in Agami. Their nightclub was hugely successful, and much of that was due to excellent food that would sometimes have names too difficult or too long to pronounce that went by numbers instead! Eventually moving to Rushdi proved not such a successful step – perhaps because of the lack of parking on Syria Street! Even the smart marketing move of appointing the familiar Alexandrian face of Pizza, with all her association with previous greatness was not enough to attract as much attention proportionate with the three vast restaurants plus patisserie complex.
