A guide to nightlife in Agadir

When the sun goes down, things don’t stop moving on holidays to Agadir. This is due not only to the huge swathe of sand, numerous sights and infinite sunshine, but also the lively activities that take over the town after dark. Here you’ll find that themed pubs mingle with nightclubs that party hard until sunrise. We’ve compiled a few of our favourites for you below, these hotspots definitely deserve your attention when you venture out on your Agadir holidays.

Party with the best of them at Papagayo

It seems as though Papagayo, with its blazing lights and warm and welcoming staff, has been woven into the tapestry of Agadir’s party scene for as long as anyone can remember. This popular party hotspot first opened in 1998 and continues to draw in the crowds today.

Its enticing beats, colourful cocktails, wide selection of spirits and tireless crowds speaks of its brilliance, as well as giving you a go-to destination for a party that roars until dawn. Come sunrise, you’re invited to stroll out onto the beach to watch the day break over the ocean.

Taste a pint the traditional way at The English Pub

Taking its cues from the wooden beams, cosy atmosphere and rich varnished woods of your local back home, The English Pub is notable for offering a more exotic view from the patio or through the windows.

More than just a themed bar, The English Pub takes great pride in giving patrons the authentic experience, so expect crisp lagers on tap, refreshing beers in cooled bottles behind the bar and a good variety of scotch, brandy and whisky. The ambience captures the community feeling effortlessly, while the pool table is also popular with patrons.

Let in the Latin spirit at Havana Bar

Named after the bustling capital of Cuba, Havana Bar boasts all the little details that make the Caribbean island great, without you having to leave Morocco to enjoy them. Expect rum by the score and Cuban cigars available to experience, all within stylish trappings that evoke the spirit of Latin America to its fullest.

Perched by a terrace that gives splendid views of the town, Havana Bar also frequently welcomes live musicians, who play the finest salsa music you’ll hear this side of the namesake city itself.

Live in sophistication at Piano Bar

Up in the north of the city, close to the marina, you’ll find Piano Bar, which for all its simplicity in succinct naming actually offers one of the most refined nightlife experiences in Agadir. As a talented musician tinkles the ivories long into the night, you’ll have the opportunity to drink cocktails among patrons who are as dressed to impress as you are.

Piano Bar has a laid-back and languid ambience that will make you feel as though you’ve stepped straight into a scene from Casablanca, yet this opulent venue is actually pretty affordable.

Watch the belly dancing at Golden Gate

The name might remind you of the famous San Francisco bridge, but it’s actually true Moroccan all the way here at Golden Gate. Belly dancers weaving their way around the tables immediately stir up an exotic flair, while cocktails of every flavour and colour fill your glass throughout the evening.

The furniture and architecture are styled after Arabian myths and the mysteries of the Levant, so let the nightlife take you in the direction of the true spirit of Morocco after dark.
