The most fashionable bar in Marrakech in the Spring of 2012 is the aptly names Djellabar (a pun on the traditional moroccan djellaba robes worn to keep the locals warm in winter and cool in summer). Located in the Hivernage district on the Rue Abou Hanifa the premises have been cleverly converted from an ornate 1940′s wedding hall. You will love the cheeky celebrity portraits complete with Fez hats!
The owner Claude Challe is often to be seen front of house bringing his own style of hospitality. There is usually a live DJ and music includes compilations from Challe’s own Budha Bar label.
The food is fantastic, a fusion of Moroccan and asian cuisine but this is a night venue, early and mid evening diners will sometimes find it very quiet. A ‘Marock ‘n roll’ night at djellabar is a great Marrakech experience. Stay in our Marrakech Riads and our staff will be pleased to help you reserve a table.
