Description: Find us in the center of the old medine. Ancient times the family home, the local, still retains the essence, but you will find a different and very unique decor. Live music every night, surrounded by works of local artists. Welcoming atmosphere, you are at home. The best way to enjoy the wonderful Moroccan cuisine. Marhaba !!! Welcome!!!

“A night to remember ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Cafe des Arts is a quaint Cafe located on Istiqlal ave. (hadada street). Twenty of us from various riads/hostels got together to take in a fantastic evening of gnawa and music of the world. The performers played for hours making sure that everyone got involved with musical instruments, with our voices and by clapping our hands. The energy was fabulous and everyone had a memorable time. A great spot to meet the lovely locals as well as other fellow travellers. Many thanks to Youssef, Rachid, Hicham and the rest of the staff. Beslama ... Amagi
