Best Things to do in Rabat at night in Hassan?

For some, the Hassan district is a residential and rather administrative district. However, in the evening it becomes livelier with many bars and restaurants offering a variety of dishes and drinks. There are also discos for those looking to dance and enjoy the nightlife !

With a relaxed & fresh atmosphere, the Hassan district is an ideal place for those looking for a peaceful and calm environment to go out at night, while being close to the city center and its attractions.

A trendy restaurant in the Hassan district. If you are looking for a traditional Moroccan dinner, this is not the place. You will find contemporary but divinely delicious dishes. The prices are a bit high but the quality of the food is up to par. We tested the tapas with the aperitif (wine, beer, alcohol) and a generous and delicious fish platter. Top atmosphere inside and on the terrace, varied menu and fantastic dishes. We recommend their fish soup and pilpil prawns. The service is impeccable and the wine list is excellent. We went back the next day so much we were conquered!

I highly recommend it !
