One of the less touristy nightlife draws in Marrakech; Djellabar is a hybrid supper club and late night DJ lounge that caters to a chic set of locals and in-the-know visitors. Located within a historic walled compound, interiors mix pop art and traditional architecture in a stylish dining room lined in plush, tufted banquettes and walls of Warhol-style prints. An exquisite bar sits under the watchful stare of Elvis and Marilyn among carved wooden walls and moody ambient lighting. Outside, a courtyard lounge lined in Moroccan rugs sits under mature olive trees and sultry beat of house DJs that spin until 3am.
Weekends are better than midweek, for those looking for an earlier start opt for a dinner reservation before making way into the bar around midnight.
Supper club and lounge bar owned by Claude Challe offers local’s vibe and late-night DJs for weekends in Marrakech.
