Rockers & metalheads were on the run some years before by the police and although there is even an egyptian black metal band, you dont have much choices for rock clubs but there are many other clubs (like those in your country) But relax its not the end of the world if you just enjoy a nice dinner in an expensive restaurant (like those in your country but cheaper!). Most of the egyptians spend their time enjoying their tea in an Ahwa(local cafe). The most famous Ahwa is Fishawl's at Khan el Khalili.

In Zamalek u can find some nice modern bars. The beer here costs around 2 euro.

Cairo Jazz Club (at Sharia 26th of July 197) is a nice place to hear live music (most of the times basic rock covers). Many tourists go there so you have to pay little more for drinks etc

You can spend a night watching Sufi Dance. I think there is one at Citadel but I saw one at Al-Ghouriyya (free entrance) and it was a great perfomance.

In case you want to taste some real interesting music experience at the end of the 26th of July St. from Abou El Feda Side(under 15th of May bridge) is The Cultural Center “Sakiat Abdel Moneim Al Sawy”. Every day there are different concerts, arabic poetry or literature presentations etc I went there two nights for the live music and it was nice although u can't drink in the venue.
