Last but not least is Harold’s, a bar and club popular among local youngsters. It’s located about three kilometres (1.8 miles) from the centre of Rabat and has an impressive, fancy décor. Here you will hear European and African music and, most importantly, drinks are quite cheap! Definitely check this bar out, as it is quite different from the others.
