Hivernage, The Other Side of Marrakech


I’ve covered in great detail what there is to see and do in the Medina in Marrakech (juice, eat like a tourist, eat like a local, get lost). After a few nights in that zoo, I reached my quota for craziness and wanted peace and calm. Enter in the Hivernage neighborhood of Marrakech. Instead of souks and snakes, there were normal restaurants, pubs, and nightclubs. Young people flock to this area to eat burgers, have drinks, and smoke argheli. It felt more like Dubai than a conservative country. Having had my fill of lamb tongue, I opted for a burger and pizza. After days of detox, I chose Budweiser over OJ. Needing some nicotine, it was time to smoke.

TPOL’s Tips:

  • Cafe extrablatt has great burgers for a reasonable price.
  • Arkech Sky Bar is open late. It serves food and alcohol.
