Charming Meknes offers plenty of fun, both by day and by night. Meknes has a large number of bars for its size, albeit many are small local watering holes. Here are some of the best places for nocturnal fun in Meknes.

Le Pub

Le Pub is a double-level bar that serves Asian, European, and Moroccan fare. There’s a wide choice of drinks and the bar has a 1980s retro vibe. Patrons can strut and shimmy on the ground-level dance floor or relax on the upper level. Informal yet classy, this is the place to go if you want to get dressed up and feel a little fancy.

Located within the Zaki Hotel and Spa, Le Churchill Bar has an olde-worlde ambience, with leather sofas and armchairs, interesting wall art, a plush carpet, polished wood, and soft lighting. Jazz music fills the air. Small statues stand on the bar, behind which is a large selection of spirits and other drinks. There is also an outside drinking area.

Hotel Transatlantique is a lively drinking spot in the summer months, when you can sit outside and admire the views across the medina. The gardens are pleasant in the day and in the evening. The drinks are fairly pricey, but the surroundings are lovely.

Le Collier de la Colombe

Bar, Restaurant, Moroccan

Although mainly operating as a restaurant, the roof terrace at Le Collier de la Colombe is a great place to relax with a glass of wine in the evenings. You may be asked to order a small dish as well, but the views over the Ville Nouvelle (New Town) and the relaxed atmosphere make adding a side-meal to your drink more than worth it.

Hotel de Nice

Although the bar at Hotel de Nice is small, the cheap prices and delicious bar snacks make this a nice place for a few drinks at the start of an evening out in Meknes. Sit and chat with friends over a drink before heading to one of the city’s livelier and larger bars.
