Going out for a drink in Morocco - help please?

Hi,

We are thinking of going to Agadir later on this year, but basically want somewhere where (like the rest of Europe) you can just go out of the hotel, and have a sight around a few bars etc.

We have been to Tunisia, but there was hardly anywhere you could get a drink outside of the hotel - no beer (apart from alcohol free) and no wine.

Is Morocco the same, or do they have bars and clubs that are just good fun and you can get a reasonably priced drink?

Thanks for your help

Prefering to take in the local ambiance (and being a cheapskate) I tend towards the local Moroccan bar in the car park behind Hotel Kamal, where the prices are low and they do a good range of food. But if you would prefer something more upmarket a large percentage of the hotels in Agadir also have bars, so no fears of having to do without. There's even an English Pub in Agadir showing UK footie.

I really like Moroccan wine, see my 'beer and wine page' at morocco-knowledgebase.net/forum/…

Sounds like you went to Skanes in Tunisia? I remember it well, dry as a bone, nothing at all outside of the hotels apart from the nearby gas station with cafe within or Sahline.

Anyway, thankfully Morocco (and in particular Agadir) is nothing like Tunisia and has so much more to offer in my opinion.

Thank you all so much for your replies - that's put me at ease now! @john9195, we went to a hotel a few KM away from Port El Kantaui, and there was nowhere around where you could just go for a walk and stop for a cold beer or a glass - in the Port all I got was a non alcoholic lager - Maybe we missed all the places!! - the Tunisians were lovely people though, and I think we would definitely go back one day

Drinks are available in most restaurants, bars and hotels.

The prices of alcohol may be expensive in most bars but there are large supermarkets were alcohol is sold and you can buy from there.

Have a good time..

Agadir is not like the rest of Europe. Yes alcohol is available, but there are no British stylepubs as such. The nearest best place is the English Pub in boulevrad 20 Aout. Otherwise, the cafes and restaurants along the promenade would be another place to go for drinks.

All hotels have theirown bars. Some would allow outside guest to come in for drink. Notably Windsor pub in Agana hotel and also the bar in Tagadirt Hotel. Nearby there is a place called the Irish Pub. But there is nothing Irish about it. Don not expect guiness to be served. Just some local beers and wines.

Alcohol in also widely available in nightclubs. But the prices are dearer, and also these nightclubs tend to be frequented by young local guys and some "working girls". You need to be aware of some sleazy character.

Some of nightclubs I can mention are Actors, Dreams, Xnadu and Le Cap. But there are few other around town.

Cheers

Oh I remember Skanes well.

Highlight of my last visit was sitting in the 'cocktail' diner, with a juice cocktail watching some Brits trying to get drunk on the beer - having already been told by the rep that the Diner doesn't serve alcohol.

I would equate the variety of restaurants along themain tourist part of Agadir with the area around the fountains in PEK.

I'm sure you'll love your holiday.
