Fes Nightlife

Fès is a conservative city so raucous nightlife is not on the menu. Bars are few and far between and are mostly found within the larger hotels; many of the more expensive restaurants serve alcohol.

Bars in Fes

Hotel Sahrai Rooftop Bar

Take a taxi and head up onto the hillside for twinkling lights of the Ville Nouvelle and medina in the distance below. The rooftop bar of this boutique hotel serves up the best cocktails in town and feels a million miles away from the bustle of the old city.

MB Lounge Bar

This intimate New York loft-style bar sits above the classy MB Restaurant, which serves up some of the best French-influenced dishes in Fès. There’s a good selection of beers, wines, and liqueurs here and a cosy feel to the space, making it a great choice for a low-key evening with friends.

The rooftop terrace of this rather slick bar is one of the most chilled out spots in town to slouch back on a sofa and enjoy a beer or glass of wine after your sightseeing is done. The tapas menu offers decent snacking if you need something to munch on.

Riad Fès

If your preference is a good atmosphere, you can’t beat sipping cocktails on the rooftop lounge of this regal old mansion; also one of the old city’s most luxurious hotels. The view from up here, with the maze of the medina spread out before you, makes this the top spot in town for a sundowner.
