Nightlife & Entertainment in Casablanca

The night life in Casablanca is a little bit calmer than in Marrakech, however, you can still enjoy a nice evening of dining at any one of Casablanca's delicious restaurants. One popular choice is Rick's Cafe, a well priced restaurant that made an appearance in the 1942 movie Casablanca. Located in an old mansion in the Old Medina, the restaurant turns into a lively place with belly dancers in the summer time.

Most of the nicer places to go for dancing are found in the central international hotels. The ones located downtown are pricier and known for prostitutes. The bars and discos located at Ain Diab have a more equal distribution of males and females. Ain Diab is lined with bars and clubs playing anything from live jazz to local Moroccan sounds. Also, keep in mind that some of these bars do not serve alcohol and that many have a dress code.

If the discos don't make you sway, then other options include watching a film at one of Casablanca's many cinemas. Also the Cultural Sidi Belyout offers music, drama and dance while the Centre Cultural Francais offers films, concerts, recitals, exhibitions and even a library.
