Seen in Alexandria: A view showing boats and yachts from the famous Greek club's restaurant in one fine afternoon in May 2016.
The Greek Club's restaurant is currently one of the most hotspots in Alexandria due to its great seafood as well greek food and an amazing view overlooking the port.
The Greek Club or the Greek Community club in Alexandria was originally founded in 1906 in another location as a social gathering place for the Greek community in the cosmopolitan city.
The original club was destroyed during the air strikes of the Nazis in the WWII and a new club was built in the current location in the famous Bahry quarter near Qatibay citadel.
Here are photos from the club and its exclusive beach in the 1960s and 1970s

There are other Greek clubs in Egypt, the most famous one is in Downtown Cairo in the famous Groppi building.
I think there is another Greek club in Port Said if I am not mistaken.
The Greek community in Egypt has been already the biggest foreign community since the 19th century. To speak about the contribution of the Greek in Egypt in the 20th century in one post will be unfair.
Currently, there are 4000 Greeks living in Egypt according to the 2010 census.
More photos from our time. 
The view from there is breathtaking for real.

    How does the Egyptian culture react to foreigners traveling to or seeking refuge in Egypt?
