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).
Derb Moulay Abdullah Ben Hezzian, 2 |

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.

Inara Bar and Lounge
For those seeking a relaxing aperitif after a day spent wandering the souks, Inara Bar and Lounge is a perfectly comfortable stopping point. Hosted by the Four Seasons, the laidback bar offers afternoon tea and refreshing cocktails, while a terrace caters to those seeking to soak up some rays.

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).
