Where to drink in Marrakech Medina? When you first arrive in Marrakech Medina it can be difficult to immediately find the right bar for your sundown cocktail or cold beer. With ten years experience of drinking in the Medina, we’re here to guide you!

There are some fabulous bars, often not visible from the street. Read on!

The classics (click on the links in the text for the websites):

Cafe Arabe in Mouassine – surely your first rooftop drink will be here

Terrasse des Epices (not to be confused with Cafe des Epices) – very cool vibe

Riad El Fenn – stunning rooftop with views over the Koutoubia

Le Trou au Mur in Ben Youssef – good food and good wine

Jardins du Lotus – absolutely fabulous place. Through the ruins and into a wonderful Riad. Wow!

Kabana – rooftop excellence and amazing view of the Koutoubia

Where to drink in Marrakech Medina? There are many more drinking opportunities. Whilst Marrakech Medina at first appears to be a conservative and religious space, experience shows that tolerance of all approaches to life is practiced. Why don’t you try these excellent bars:

Kosybar in the Mellah, for fabulous sunsets

Marrakchi on Jemaa El Fna, next to Cafe de France

Salama – not my favourite … yet popular, just off Jemaa El Fna

I could go on – Marrakech Medina is far from being a desert. Fabulous rooftop bars, hidden gems, wonderful experiences. And for every licenced bar – like the ones mentioned here – there are ten speakeasy’s, where the locals hang out, discreetly, to sip a beer or something stronger. Don’t try the “palm wine” – mehia – it is a dangerous, home distilled alcohol which causes many deaths every year. Basically a cheap fruit or cereal based alcohol which comes with a red health warning.

Marrakech is an open and tolerant place. Don’t be weirded by people telling you otherwise. As long as you are respectful of neighbours, pay your bills and behave rationally you will be fine. Please drink responsibly.
