If you're staying in and around the Medina you will find it difficult to find bars and restaurants that serve alcohol. Cafe Arabs is very central (in the souk). It's classy and has good food and drink menus. Worth a visit

A cool, fun rooftop bar. Quite difficult to find (best to ask for directions) in the heart of the medina. Modern but traditional with simple drinks and cool views of the city. Bar service is a bit slow but a nice place to chill after...More

We stopped for a drink on the balcony to look over the markets. The cafe is very clean and the staff are lovely. Worth getting there early to get a good seat.

This was a fun people watching place. My Tagine was delicious and we were very pleased with the bottle of Moroccan wine suggested by the server. Would recommend!

They serve alcohol, but that is really the only good thing about the whole place. Worst food of the whole weekend!!

Thank you everyone. I can confirm Cafe Arabe does serve alcohol during Ramadan. Had a great meal as ever (been eating here for over 10 years) just never visited during Ramadan.

I was there during a dinner cocktails from 7pm to around 11:00pm, but didn't see any one smoking sisha. But the roof deck and the courtyard are definitely smoking areas. But I think if you will call in advance, you may... More
