The decadent, infamous Tangier nightlife from the 1950s no longer exists. In fact, the local bars can be downright depressing. If you’re looking for some fun after dark, stick to the more touristy restaurants, cafes, and hotel bars, where you can still see first-rate Moroccan entertainment. The older hotels bars may put on a more traditional show, a bit less cheesy than you’ll probably find at the newer hotels. If you want to keep partying later into the night, check out the cafes at the Grand Socco and Petit Socco or the Place de France and Boulevard Pasteur. One popular spot right on the beach is Sable D’or Bar, opposite the Hotel Solazur on Avenue Mohammed VI. The energetic bar, which features live Moroccan music and dancing, is popular with tourists and locals alike. Other safe bets include the Ramada Almohades Tangier, also located on the beach near the ferry terminal, which has an Oriental Cabaret, a Piano Bar, and a Disco Latino. And the small bar located within the Tanger Inn hotel is a good place to have a drink, according to past patrons Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and William S. Burroughs.
