A Brooklyn-style bar may not sound like the most authentic nightspot for Casablanca visitors to try, but for young hip things who love Americana, it's proving very popular. Despite the brick walls and curious art (it looks more like a Moroccan fantasy of a Brooklyn bar than a replication of anything in New York), it still features some of the city's best cocktails and a friendly atmosphere.
Though it would be wrong to suggest that no one drinks, alcohol is generally frowned upon in Morocco, so there isn't much of a boozing culture. Casablanca might be the exception. With a more European feel to the rest of the country, perhaps due to its French colonial past, Casablanca is awash with sophisticated bars, lively restaurants and a few nightclubs. The Corniche area has the trendiest spots, where people congregate in the streets and crowd the beach clubs during seemingly endless summers. There are a few places to watch traditional dances and music, too.
