Fez is one of the top destinations in Morocco. An imperial city, with the oldest medina in the world, it also boats the oldest university in the world and old medieval tanneries that are still in operation to this day. After a long day of strolling through the overwhelmingly crowded medina, you’ll most certainly need a break. Here are the top spots to have a unique night out in Fez.

One of the best spots to go for a unique and elegant night out is the luxurious Hotel Sahrai. This 5-star hotel is located in the entrance of Fez el Bali and offers an exceptional experience. The main bar, The Rooftop, has stunning views over the medina whether in the day or at night. Here you’ll be able to enjoy drinks while listening to good music, or you could enjoy a sumptuous meal from the hotel restaurant, Arcades, where professional waiters present an amazing dinner in an excellent atmosphere.
If you aren’t feeling up for a fancy night out, you can opt for a simple but unique time at Baghdadi Square. Much like Jemaa el-Fna in Marrakesh, on a hot night you’ll find young Fassis and families hanging out, sitting on the grand steps, enjoying the many shows that take place, such as singing, dancing, and other types of entertainment.
Located in the centre of Fez, this bar offers delicious cocktails, beers and other alcoholic beverages for a decent price. Enjoy your drinks to the sound of the live band or different DJs that attend every other night, on the outdoor terrace or curled up on one of the cosy sofas inside.
This bar is located in a luxury hotel called Palais Faraj Suites. It has great views over the old medina and a calm but sophisticated atmosphere. You can relax and get comfortable in your chair while sipping a Cosmopolitan and listening to the piano.
This amazing bar is also located within a boutique hotel, Riad Fez. The amazing décor and wooden furniture makes you feel cosy, while the endless choice of alcohol at the bar will leave you speechless! This is a great spot for either a romantic dinner or a night out with friends.
