New Year’s Eve in Marrakech

With just days to go before its time to bid 2014 farewell and ring in 2015, Marrakech will become a hot spot over New Year as the leading clubs, restaurants and hotels prepare to host party-goers from around the world.  And with several celebrations taking place around town, I’ve narrowed down my list of top places to ring in 2015.

Intimate yet elegant
Top choice: La Table du Riad

Innovative cuisine, an elegant dining room and refined entertainment make this my top pick for a low-key yet stylish New Year’s Eve celebration. For more information: Riad Living

Cost: 990.00MAD per person

Reservations: contact@riad72.com

Hip night out
Top choice: El Fenn

Head on over to El Fenn from 8 p.m. for a welcome drink before dinner in the newly renovated dining room where guests will a enjoy a three-course dinner before a DJ takes to the turntables and gets the crowd moving in to the early hours of 2015.

Cost: 1375.00MAD per person

Reservations: contact@el-fenn.com (required as this party regularly sells out)

Chic
Top choice: La Mamounia

It was one of Churchill’s favourite venues when he was in Marrakech, so we wouldn’t expect anything but the best. Each of the restaurant has prepared a special menu at 3500.00MAD per person followed by entertainment to ring in the New Year. The rich seven-course menu in the Italian restaurant sounds most appetizing.

Cost: 3500.00MAD per person

Reservations: 0524 38 86 00 

Party time!
Top choice: Bo&Zin

It’s the place to in Marrakech on weekends and on New Year’s Eve, the party atmosphere at Bo&Zin turns up with live music between DJ sets.  Fresh seafood from Oualidia and foie gras are just some of the menu options.

Cost: 2000.00MAD

Reservations: 0524 38 80 12 

Traditional Moroccan
Top choice: Dar Zellij

Start the evening off with a cocktail on the terrace while enjoying the sounds of Gnaoua music. Then head down to the dining romo for a five-course Moroccan meal as the Andalusian musicians provide the background music.  Get ready to party from 11 p.m.  as the belly dancers take to the floor at Dar Zellij and get the crowd ready to ring in 2015!

Cost: 1700.00MAD per person

Reservations: 0524 38 26 27
