Shortly after my trip to Dubai, I spent a few days in Marrakech, and both cities are quite similar regarding cocktail bars – muslims don’t drink alcohol but tourists can get their fix at licensed hotel bars and restaurants. Despite the very limited amount of time, I’m quite happy with what I was able to find – check it out:
Rather standard hotel bar close to the largest mosque in Marrakech, with live piano on certain evenings.. an OK cocktail list, but the actual cocktails are overly sweet with crazy garnish – just look at the Daiquiri above.
Another piano bar, made to look like a “luxurious private club from the 1930s”, with a small but nice selection of booze and cocktails, generous amount of complimentary snacks – and a bartender who definitely knows what he’s doing.
Two bars inside the extremely luxurious La Mamounia hotel, with different interiors but the same cocktail menu. During my visit, Le Bar Churchill offered amusing entertainment by a rather tipsy female singer from NYC, and Le Bar Italien had – surprise – a pianist playing jazzy tunes. Both bars easily served the best cocktails, both the classics and their signature drinks were made with perfection – highly recommended! I also visited their casino which had a more tacky Las Vegas atmosphere and different cocktails such as Black Jack, Poker Cocktail and so on – avoid.
