well it is the heart of cairo where you can enjoy a nice tanoora show and listen to oriental music,meet real locals and have a nice cup of tea with sheesha which is just like smoking a cigaret but through a water pipe.

As others will point out, this is used as a venue for cultural shows. I haven't been to one of those, but the building itself is the best-known example of caravenserai, or merchants' inn, in medieval Egypt. It seems to be a functioning workplace, too, so you may not be able to visit much more than the courtyard. If you don't want to pay to go inside, the entrance facade is also another elaborate Mamluk-era portal of carved stone.
