Although Morocco is a Muslim country, alcohol, nightclubs and bars are not illegal. Due to its geographic location, the coastal city of Tangier has received influence from the Spanish, British and French. It has an active nightlife and bar scene and there are a lot of watering holes near the seafront. Here are the best bars in town for a unique night out!

1. TangerInn


TangerInn is a historic nightclub, with a 1950s vibe and decoration of American beatnik writers. The bar is located in the heart of Tangier, directly by the sea, and the prices are decent if you are looking for a cheap but unforgettable night out. It’s relatively small and closed on Sundays but definitely a place worth visiting when in Tangier.

2. El Morocco Club

Restaurant, Bistro, Bar, Moroccan, Mediterranean, European

El Morocco is a restaurant with a bar area, and its unique atmosphere will remind you of James Bond movies. With a pianist playing all night long and extremely professional service, this is the perfect place for a night out if you’re into elegance and class.

3. La Luna Club Tanger

This club is famous for its European-Moroccan style, with Marrakesh-like shows and Marbella Club atmosphere, this has to be one of the people’s favourites! They play European music with a DJ every night and the selection of drinks is extensive. If you’re looking for the most unique drinks menu, then head straight to La Luna.

555 Famous Club Tanger

555 is one of the best clubs in Tangier. It plays commercial music, the décor inside is modern, and it’s most famous for being like European nightclubs. Ladies get free entry and free drinks (all night long), while you can also book a table if you are with a group, with a bottle of alcohol, seats and VIP treatment, all for a decent price.

4. El Tangerino Bar

Bar, Restaurant, Mediterranean, Seafood, Pub Grub, European

This bar and restaurant is renowned for both its drinks and amazing seafood. The property is divided in two: the dining area and the bar, which has a totally different vibe due to its dim, purple lighting. The music is relaxed, the atmosphere is incredible and, while having a drink at the bar, you can enjoy the many tapas on offer, with fresh fish or seafood straight from the Mediterranean!

5. Caid's Bar

Bar, Pub Grub

Located inside the El Minzah Hotel, this traditional bar serves incredible cocktails and wine. Like El Morocco Club, it’s elegant and priced accordingly, but it’s definitely worth visiting for a night of listening to the piano and sipping on white wine.

6. Restaurant Number One

Bar, Restaurant, Moroccan

This cosy little bar is located near the Medina of Tangier. With funky décor, you will frequently find expats here watching a football game, or simply having a cold pint. This is definitely the best place to meet new people and connect!

7. London's Pub

This is your typical English pub, with cold pints galore, snacks and a whole lot of people! The décor is simple but charming and the whole pub is made of wood, making you feel like you’ve been transported to London. They also serve dinner with a variety of choices at decent prices.

8. La Bodega

La Bodega is a little treasure hidden in Tangier. While on the outside it has a Moroccan look, the interior is like stepping back in time to America in the ’50s. Frames of Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Jimi Hendrix and many more hang from walls, the music is tasteful and you can even have dinner. They offer amazingly delicious dishes, so it’s certainly a place you might not want to leave.
