One of Marrakech's most striking - and glamorous - riads, El Fenn combines a traditional Moroccan feel with vibrant contemporary design. You don't need to book a room to dip your toe into the scene: simply nab a table on the roof terrace, where you can sip Moroccan wine (or the bar's famous, frosty Mojitos).

Above the Medina's mania of souks and winding alleyways, this old foundouk (merchant's inn) is a haven for weary shoppers in need of refreshment. Before the sun sets, head upstairs to Café Arabe's sumptuously decorated terrace, which offers impressive city views and no shortage of aperitifs.

Though the restaurant portion of the venue and its meze earn accolades, glitzy Azar's late-night scene is worth a visit during the wee hours. In the plush shisha lounge, guests sprawl as they contentedly puff, pipe in one hand and cocktail in the other.
