Top 3 Places to Party in Marrakech

If you are thinking cheap booze till sunup with ear-splitting music playing in the backdrop of a basement nightclub, then don’t think of a vacation to party in Marrakech. The city lacks the ‘obvious’ nightlife scene, thanks to the stringent etiquettes and law dictating the prohibition on serving alcohol within the view of Medina (meaning everywhere!). That said, Marrakech has begun to revamp its nightlife scene over the years, with many bars and clubs opening up on the far away neighborhoods.

So check out the top 3 places to party in Marrakech, after you are done exploring the gorgeous mosques, palaces and gardens in the daytime:

1. Gueliz

A new-fangled addition to Marrakech’s otherwise traditional scene is this buzzing neighborhood of Gueliz. You can definitely notice the Europeanism in the long, tree-lined boulevards and gorgeous monuments in this neighborhood. Bring your party animal out at Barometre, sipping in a fancy Burning Passion or a glass of Final Touch. Pointbar, a sought-after discotheque draws many well-heeled locals looking for an after-work booty shaking. Le 68, another popular hotspot pulls the expat crowd with its cheese boards and French wines.

2. Jemaa El-Fna

The beating heart of Marrakech, this bustling square is recognized by UNESCO for its Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Giving you an entirely offbeat experience of a vibrant nightlife, Jemaa El-Fna has become a space for performances and unique entertainment. Authentic musicians, storytellers, snake charmers, kooky street performers and local dancers give way to a busy day as well as an enjoyable night, with many mobile eateries offering excellent authentic Moroccan cuisine. Reach the square for a perfect sunset over Medina, and stroll over the neighboring Prince Moulay Rachid to end the night with some prime people-watching.

3. Tangier

A hot destination that is easy on the female partiers, Tangier houses umpteen bars and clubs in Marrakech. You can spot hordes of international bacchanals dancing till the wee hours, but with a dearth of alcohol. The best is to get your fill at the Riad (Moroccan guesthouses) before you head out to party. Sky Lounge, La Esquinita and Tangerine are popular spots to spend the night at. Other than these, there are a number of Tapas bars, Sheesha hubs, Chaabi Cabarets, cinemas & cafes contributing to Tangier nightlife.

The dual life of Marrakech houses tradition running deep in its roots (most bars close down for the month-long Ramzan fast!) along with a parallel playground for international bacchanals seeking some belly-shaking. So take your pick of the two and visit the beautifully warm city!
