Naomi Campbell and Sean “P-Diddy” Combs have both worked the Marrakech nightlife circuit and for good reason—the city’s alter ego, which emerges after dark, has an “all party, all the time” attitude. Increasingly one of the main lures, the hottest clubs are predictably located in the open-minded environs of the Ville Nouvelle, especially in the big hotels of Gueliz and Hivernage.

Marrakech Nightlife


Find a lively party atmosphere at Le Comptoir, a decadent lounge-style club and restaurant. While the decor doesn’t scream Morocco – and the clientele is mostly European – the hookahs, belly dancers, and DJs have made it one of the city’s most popular nighttime hangouts. The bar serves cocktails and tapas, while the restaurant features Moroccan and European fare.

Jad Mahal

Jad Mahal provides an extravagant after-dark venue with Indian-style decor (including a big bronze elephant) and a house band that covers American hits from the 1980s as well as international tunes. The restaurant on the main floor is decent, but the real action takes place in the subterranean nightclub, where locals mix with Europeans.
