Marrakech nightlife

The light had the preternatural purity which give a foretaste of mirage: It was the light in which magic becomes real, and which helps to understand how, to people living in such an atmosphere, the boundary between fact and dream perpetually fluctuates.

A glam spot just outside of the city. The vibe is Moroccan and Asian (A-listers universally love sushi), and the fusion relates to the ambiance as well: 21st-century modern furniture, tents, torches, DJs, and disco.

Aperitifs on the roofdeck are a must. Looking to nosh? The Italian owners infuse a Moroccan menu with highlights from their homeland (carpaccio, pavlova, an extensive wine list). 

Jemaa El Fna Night Market

  • Medina, Outdoor Attractions, $$$$ $
  • Place Djema El Fna
  • Marrakech

The central square turns into a boisterous evening hang with snake charmers, storytellers, gamblers, henna artists, and local crowds. Pull up a seat at one of the open-air eateries or kiosks specializing in kebabs, spicy sausages, and sweet mint tea. Watch the grill in front of you, and get your order on a to-go plate.

  • Avenue Echchouada
  • Marrakech, 40000

A French-Moroccan lounge/club great for pre-dinner drinks or a loungey late-night with live entertainment (belly dancing, bands, people-watching).

Palais Jad Mahal

  • 10 Rue Houroune Errachid
  • Marrakech
  • +212-524-436-984

A somewhat ridiculously over-the-top party spot in a palatial old space. People dance on tables with belly dancers holding sparklers. At any given moment you might hear live French hip-hop, Bollywood, or traditional Berber music. And yes, there may be a whirling dervish in your future.
