Nightlife & Restaurants
The city that no longer sleeps, and with the arrival of Pacha a few years ago, Marrakech has acquired an Ibiza-like reputation for nightlife. The smartly dressed usually get in free and often the bars double up as restaurants.
This Nightlife complex continues to party during the day, with DJ’s daily by the poolside. Lunch and drinks are served to tables and large canopy sun loungers.Visit Website

On the rue du Liberte is this wonderful chic bistro that you would expect to find in Greenwich Village New York. Affordable, charming and great food open till late.
Pasta Z + 212 (0) 524447070
You need to order this a few hours before so that they deliver on time. Good pizza, pasta, salads and dessert delivered to the door. They are part of restaurant Cantanzaro
TOPERA + 212 (0) 66147800 Abde
These people are an on site team that will deliver traditional Moroccan food of an exceptional quality but if you are going to order with them you will find that it is half the price but double the waiting time.
La Mamounia + 212 (0) 524 388600
This newly refurbished restaurant is the hub of Marrakech. They have a great bar inside and out to have a pre dinner drink. The Italian restaurant is outstanding so is the traditional Moroccan tucked away in the corner of the gardens.
Royal Mansour +212 (0) 529808080
Commissioned by the King of Morocco, this hotel is rated as one of the best in the world
Amanajena + 212 (0) 524 403353
Excellent Thai cuisine alongside the swimming pool in one of the best hotels in the world, booking is essential.
Just opened and it has a great Italian restaurant but expect normal 5 star prices. It is a beautiful resort but has only been opened for a matter of weeks. I’d imagine the spa would be second to none as all the the Four Seasons have Asain inspired spa’s.The staff are absolutely delightful and will show you around.

A stunning new hotel five minutes drive from the Samanah Resort on the route D’Amizmiz. The hotel has been designed by the same designers as Hotel Costes inParis, bright colours and luxurious textiles. The restaurant is fantastic and you may call the manager to arrange lunch or swimming. Do not leave without asking the Manager to show you around the heated stables and visit the most well kept horse I have ever seen.

Sofitel + 212 (0) 524 425600
This is a great meeting place and the terrace overlooking the pool is the perfect setting for drinks anytime of the day or night. The food is also great in all the restaurants but I particularly like the rooftop bar/restaurant which has a ‘trio menu’ and live music.
