This sports bar is a fun place for a few beers with friends. Come early to grab a table and feast on their extensive tapas menu. Stay late for a lively vibe when the music gets turned up and a party atmosphere descends.
Rue Moulay Ali |
Laidback Le Point presses all the right buttons for a chilled out evening. There's a rather eclectic ambience; part tapas bar, part late night lounge and part sports bar (with football games played on the big screen) but that all adds to its easygoing charm. Slouching out, with a beer or cocktail, on a comfy sofa along the palm-studded terrace is the relaxing remedy after a day treading the dusty medina streets.

DJs take to the decks at night, but Sky Bab may well be at its best by day. Decorated in a stylish black-and-white colour scheme and outfitted with plush banquettes underneath a gauzy awning, it's a perfect mid-afternoon oasis.
Rue Mohamed El Beqqal |
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).

555 Famous Club
By far Marrakech's best club, 555 offers serious clubbers a line-up of both local and foreign DJs with sets blending RnB, House and Techno with a smattering of Euro-pop thrown in for good measure. Early arrivals often get free entry but the venue doesn't start to pump until around 1am.

Le 68 Bar a Vin
Small on size, big on atmosphere; this wine bar is a late night Gueliz hotspot with a large collection of both Moroccan and European wines to quaff. Arrive early to grab a table because it's standing room only as the evening goes on. Yes it can be a bit of a squeeze but the friendly vibe, with conversations often spilling over between tables, more than makes up for the lack of space.

No Mad Bar
If the view from the No Mad Bar is inviting (and it is, with the Atlas Mountains in the distance and sunset-framed palm trees in the foreground) then the rooftop bar's ambiance might be even more so. The Palmeraie party set flock here for DJ-spun tunes and house cocktails like La Vie en Rose (Rosé Champagne with eau de rose).
