not only you can drink alcohol in bars and restaurants but can also buy it in lots of shops in the new town and in Marjane and acima_ large super markets . The quality and price othnother and quality of silver varies from one shop to another Look around and compare

Hi proneil!

First,concerning alcohol..no problem..with little differneces with our western country..

You can find alcohol in supermarket and grossery stores in the new town and more or less the same cost than elsewhere..

You can find also restaurants&bars&discotheques which serves alcohol but even when the coffes or restaurants which provides alcohol,you just have to be inside as the alcohol is never served in terraces in Marrakech..

Few restaurants in the medina(old town) but always more pricy!

You may have a drinck in the cosy bar,a great place for cocktails near palace bahia and mellah(jwish place)

A part of it,you may find drinck too in your accommodations..and if not the case,you can buy some and take it with you..

Always nicer and better maners to buy alcohol in the place you stay if they 're allowed to sell rather than buy your own and ask glasses!

Concerning jewelry,just check that's not iron with silver around..and you may go to jemaa el fna area in kanaria where you've got several dealers quite honest!

have a great stay!

alcohol in Morocco is everywhere it is the country of freedom . you can get alcohol drinks in the supermarket , restaurants, hotels, pubs, or night clubs.

for the silver jewellery i can recommend you a good place in new town (guéliz) not in the médina they have the best quality for more information pm
