Nights Out in Marrakech
So much of what you read about Marrakech is all about the days: from trips to the souk to the best places to lie by the pool. But what about the night? Here’s our guide to the places for a night out in the Red City.
Sultry basement bar Baromètre specialises specialises in new-wave, molecular cocktails with tapas to match. Mixology classes available on request. 5pm–11pm. Closed Sunday.
La Mamounia hotel’s Le Churchill Bar is, of course, a tribute to the man himself who spent months here (not always at the bar). Now it’s home to impeccably made cocktails, champagne paired with caviar, and live jazz bands. Dress code is strictly smart. Daily 11.30am – 11pm.
Les Jardins du Lotus serves up aperol spritzes and tacos in its splashy, pink and green courtyard. Daily 12noon – 1am.
Head to the SkyBar at Le Salama, just off the Jemma all Fna, for a sultry, Jazz bar style vibe, cocktails, hookah pipes and maybe even a little impromptu belly dancing.
And of course, El Fenn’s very own rooftop bar is open for happy hour cocktails as the sun dips over the Atlas. No reservation required but come early to guarantee a table during busier months.
DINNER & DANCING
Le Comptoir Darna is the original, and still the best, for after dinner parties with shimmying belly-dancers. Daily 7pm–11pm.
Ling Ling at the Mandarin Oriental segues effortlessly from chic Asian eats to the hottest party in town courtesy of high energy grooves and killer drinks.
Le Palace with its red velvet armchairs and smoky mirrors, is a hot spot for a late dinner, impeccably-made whisky sours, and cabaret.
All that glitters is glam at Bo Zin – one of the Red City’s longest running night spots, where dinner segues nicely into an evening dancing under the stars in their Balinese style garden.
DRINKS & DANCING
Saturdays at The Source start with the funkiest pool party in town, then ramp up the beat for the Essence of Africa sessions with DJs and live music.
The younger crowd like to party at Theatro where local DJs keep everyone partying until the sun comes up. Open 11.30pm – 5am.
