Incredibly packed and one of the few places with funky live music.
The plushest cinema in town, this huge complex in Aïn Diab has four comfortable theatres that are usually packed.
Newly opened, this cinema at Morocco Mall offers the country's glitziest movie-going experience.
Also has a slightly gay-friendly atmosphere.
The beachfront suburb of Aïn Diab is the place to go for late night drinking and dancing in Casa. However, hanging out with Casablanca's beautiful people for a night on the town doesn't come cheap...
A Fellini-esque, cabaret-style bar-cum-restaurant.
The old city abattoirs built in 1922 have been transformed into an impressive cultural centre dubbed the Culture Factory...
An ultramodern pop sensation.
Serves cocktails to more middle-of-the-road live music.
A good option if you don’t want to trek out to Aïn Diab, this spacious and comfortable cinema has an excellent sound system.
The seedy nightclub here is good for late-night couleur locale as the belly dancers and singers provoke the mostly male locals into throwing money at them.
High ceilings, swish, modern furniture, subtle lighting and a hint of elegant colonial times mark this cafe out from the more traditional smoky joints around town...
A classic, cavernous, single-screen, art deco cinema.
This 200-seat theatre hosts plays (usually in Arabic) and the occasional music recital or dance performance.
A die-hard relic of 1920s France, this strictly male-only bar was where Saint-Exupéry, the French author and aviator, used to spend time between mail flights across the Sahara...
Other than Aïn Diab the only real options are the clubs at the large international hotels. They're pretty predictable places with little atmosphere but they attract plenty of business people and tourists...
One of the only real option is clubs at the large international hotels, like Black House .
This bar-lounge, set over two levels with brick walls and 1960s furniture, is the place to feel the beat of the new Morocco...
Another exception to the men-only rule, this lovely cafe is set behind the sqala in the medina wall. The flower-filled garden is quiet all afternoon and makes a great place for coffee or delicious juices.
