Between a trendy evening among friends, a romantic weekend or a solitary trip, Marrakech has something to please everyone! Bars, clubs and discos… take your pick!
Journey to the end of the night at Raspoutine
After Paris and Rome, the Raspoutine excites Marrakech over delicious cocktails and techno dancing in a theatrical setting – wide red velvet curtains and elegant upholstered sofa benches giving it a Baroque atmosphere! Just like Leonardo DiCaprio, Madonna and Rihanna, experience one of the city's best places. Here, the playlist is in vogue and keeps partygoers dancing. Enjoy homemade cocktails as well as more classic drinks. This combination has made wonders since the first Parisian address opened in the 1960s. From the very start, this Russian cabaret has topped the lists of places where to party and be seen. Serge Gainsbourg, the Aga Khan and the Count of Paris all used to frequent this club. Following the example of his Parisian sibling, Raspoutine Marrakech will never cease to amaze

The indispensable Bar Churchill
Named after former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, who used to be a regular, the La Mamounia Hotel's cocktail bar is among the most mythical of Marrakech. From 6pm onwards, when the Churchill opens, jazzy notes irresistibly reverberate between the lobby and the tea room… The 1930s decoration conceived by Jacques Garcia elegantly mixes leopard prints, upholstered leather and black velvet. In this muted atmosphere, the pianist plays a soft jazz on his purple lacquered instrument. On the tables, the honeyed toned old bourbons colour glasses. And get ready for high-flying cocktail menu, available every night until 1am!

Comptoir Darna, for a frenzied evening
Comptoir Darna welcomes you for nights of partying in the Hivernage neighbourhood. At once restaurant, bar and club, it provides incredible ambiance until 3am. Are you feeling a tad hungry? Start with an oriental dance show in the restaurant, guaranteed to warm up the atmosphere… Carry on with – or maybe even start – the evening at the club on 1st floor, where no day goes by without an unforgettable show, a performance, a choreography or oriental music revisited by trendy DJs. Magic takes over the crowd and creates symbiosis as dancing fever becomes too much. At the bar, signature cocktails take on ballet names: Magic Marrakech, Tango Mango or Pink Panther. Care for a shisha? It's in the patio that you'll be able to give in, amid palm trees. Festive evening guaranteed!

Cabaret mood at Lotus Club
The Lotus Club is a key spot for whoever wants to have a last drink and sway their hips until morning comes. Each night from 9.30pm onwards, the curtain rises to reveal famous Ohlala revue's show, a colourful Moroccan spectacle that is all the rage among young and old alike. The night promises to be quite festive in that club reminiscing of the Moulin Rouge, twirling glitter, glitz and feathers around. Are you ready to take on the dancefloor? If not, you'd prefer sipping on a cocktail with your loved one in the lounge area, near the second bar, as it offers an intimate and cosy setting. Whatever you choose, the night will be magical!

Le Grand Café de la Poste, the place to be
A genuine institution since the 1920s, the Grand Café de la Poste is just as famous in Marrakech as the Café de Flore in Paris. It is the place to be, where celebrities like to gather all day long and even late into the night. Elegantly decorated, it retained a colonial style, with its shady louvered shutters that happen to act as the best rampart against the heat in Marrakech. Comfortably seated in a wicker chair, you'll reach for the menu waiting for you on a Carrara marble table. Dishes and cocktails will remind you of the France of all-day serving bistros, where waiters dexterously carry their large trays in a choreographed ballet worthy of any live show. This exceptional address is a perfect yet simple meeting spot.

Amanjena, for a romantic last drink
In a recently renovated decor worthy of the Arabian Nights, Amanjena's smokehouse-bar offers the calm and elegance of large Moroccan houses. Get ready for a journey on Berber land from the second you enter the living room adorned with ancient swords and traditional enamelled tilework. Behind the bar, skilled bartender Moad Yassiri awaits your order. He perfectly masters crafting unique cocktails made of local ingredients such as Moroccan cactus, honey, eucalyptus, as well as rose and hibiscus petals. Mixology classics are also available on the menu, from mojitos to cosmopolitans. If you're looking for a breath of freshness, the garden is a haven of rest, perfectly adapted to smoke a shisha of oriental flavours. A relaxing experience upped by service of utmost quality!
